comment Refrigerator won't cool
@Tester101 Well that's not cool (pun intended). Is there a good way to test that the compressor is bad before I toss it to the curb?

comment How do I determine if a wall is load bearing?
I've been up in the attic, but I haven't gone all the way to the bathroom area since it's difficult to reach. I'll probably go up there just to double check, but what would I be looking for when removing more drywall? Should I be removing some of the ceiling drywall, or just from the wall? Am I looking to see visible joists?

@Edwin: This wall is a short (~3.5 feet) section of wall dividing the toilet area from the rest of the bathroom. As such, there are no windows or doors in this piece of wall (just a single electrical outlet).

DMoore: So it's common for non load bearing walls to be topped with multiple 2x4's? I'm referring to the ceiling joists. maple_shaft: That's good to know! Thank you both.
