comment Ceiling fan fixture lights flicker then whole unit fails completely
Using a non-contact tester, can you read power on the hot lead to the fan, or remote control, when the wall switch is on? (If you do not know how to do this safely, as @keshlam suggests, you probably should call in a pro.)

comment How to untangle spring for kitchen faucet hose?
The upper half has to be pushed down below the lower half. Try it as it is configured now (as it appears in the picture). If that doesn't work, rotate the upper half 90 degrees clockwise and try again.

Good point. How does the current one work? Is it a double throw switch, that you hold for up and it stops when you let go? Is down in the same direction or opposite on the switch?

comment How can I finish a hole in the wall?
+1 If you search the web for images of round flange, you will find lots of possibilities. If you could get away with 2.5", high speed heating vents come in a wide variety of finishes. You also should consider using a short section of pipe (plastic or metal) lining the hole in the wall itself to reduce dust and airflow.

comment Am I required to have a doorknob lock on my exterior door?
While in-knob locks are almost always self locking, so are many auxiliary latches. But I guess that would just perpetuate the problem of being locked out. Usually you can turn off the self-latching feature and just rely on the deadbolt.

Was it stain or a stain/polyurethane combination?
