comment How do I change a switched outlet to a half-hot outlet?
The reason being you need two hot lines (two blacks, two reds, or one black one red) at a half-hot outlet, one switched and one always hot. If it is switched now, you don't have an always-hot wire in the box.

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?
