comment 36 year old no frost refrigerator has stopped heating. Is it worth tracking problem and fixing or is replacement the most economical option?
Unless it is an ammonia absorption cycle refrigerator, those are collector items.

comment Feedback on why constantly draining. It's starting to flood backyard
That might be the condensation drain if that is a gas water heater of the condensing type. If that is so and you have high gas usage there might be a problem with the thermostat resulting the heater running continuously.

comment What's the best way to select windows for heating efficiency? I have an older house in a northern climate
Actually its more like 1 watt to remove 20 watts of heat, so to remove 1000 watts you only need 50 watts of power. Ignoring the cost of moving air around.

comment Convert a switched receptacle to a non switched receptacle
"The rest of the rooms had just one switched outlet, usually in the most inconvenient spot to put a floor lamp." implies that the outlets are actually receptacles.

comment What type of replacement switch do I need for this hot tub?
How about a complete picture of the circuit diagram that appears in red text partially in your photo or even better the model number of the hot tub so one could look up the service manual and find the parts list.

comment light fixture wattage question
I would think that the 100 watt max applies to each socket rather than being what the fixture must not exceed in sum. You could put three 100 watt bulbs in those 3 sockets.

comment Cost effectiveness of replacing brass door knobs and hinges
If they are actually brass, just clean them. I would never replace actual brass hardware with anything unless it is broken.

comment Can I use a snake to clean out a shower head extension?
I wouldn't snake a water supply pipe. Does the water come out properly without the extension installed? If so, then the restriction is in the extension.

comment Specialty stove wire and box fill
It wouldn't violate 310.10(H) if each pair of black and red are only connected on this end and not inside the cooktop.
