comment Cleaning the stone of a hot-stone grill with a detergent
The stone is likely porous, and so could retain detergent. The next time you cook, the retained detergent could affect the flavor of the food (or worse, infuse the food with dangerous chemicals).

comment Vent pipe related odor
Is there an exhaust fan in the bathroom? If so, does it have a duct connecting it to the outside, or does it just blow into the ceiling cavity? Are there any open pipes in the laundry room? How is the washer drain connected to the house drain?

A power saw for thin cardboard? Seems a bit overkill.

comment How do I keep the door jamb moulding from pulling away from the wall when hardware is screwed in?
As you tighten down the screws, it should push the molding tighter against the wall. The fact that the molding is moving in the opposite direction, suggests that the screw is not going deeper and that the molding is being pushed out by the threads.

comment What causes a heater fan to keep running?
The limit switch is a sensor in the furnace that opens if the furnace gets too hot. In most furnaces, if the limit opens, the blower stays on to remove excess heat.

If it's not all the time, it could be a bad limit switch.
