comment Can I rerpalace only the booster motor on a booster assembly for DGAT furnace?
If you can find a comparable replacement, I'm sure it can be replaced. Without the model number of the furnace, it's not likely anybody can provide accurate instructions for replacing the motor.

comment Why would a person get shocked by the front door handle?
Is it a continuous shock as long as you're holding the handle, or a short arcing discharge as you grab the handle? When you touch the door knob, what are you standing on (concrete, wood, or metal porch, the ground, a puddle)? It could be possible that there is a voltage potential between the place you're standing and the door knob.

If it was used by a utility, they'd likely already be there to repair it.

comment What type of bolt should I use to maintain a movable joint?
If the device is using the bolt as a pivot, the bolt should not have threads through the material that will be pivoting on it. You'll want a bolt with a smooth shank for the length that will be "inside" the wood, and threads only on the exposed portion.

comment What can I do if the sink tailpiece is too close to the wall?
A P-trap doesn't have to necessarily look like a P to function. You can twist the trap around a bit, to make it fit in tighter spots. This trap for example, goes "forward", and then loops back to the outlet. Just don't do anything like this.

comment Honeywell wireless thermostat and central heating controler problem
Is it possible that the boiler itself has a minimum temperature setting? Meaning that if the temp drops too low, the boiler cycles to maintain a safe temperature. Including the make and model of thermostat and boiler would be helpful in determining what features each has.
