comment How do I replace a broken thermostat on a metal radiator?
Could you post a picture of the thermostat? You'll probably get better advice that way.

Is it a single breaker going, or are several tripping at once?

comment Can anything interesting be done with Kidde's interconnect wires?
The answer there is to get it fixed, not to mess around with it. Maybe the question you should be asking is how you can stop it going off for the wrong reasons. Try vacuuming them out and replacing all their batteries first would be my advice there.

My advice would be to not mess with your smoke/CO2 detector system, your life depends on it working.

comment Should I primer my walls/ceiling before I spray on texture?
Read the instructions on the can, it will likely suggest whether priming is necessary or not.

comment Should I use a centrifugal or axial fan for server room ventilation?
I agree with @Arthor, this is more relevant here. I've designed whole data centers and I have no idea.

comment Is it possible to use a dryer vent as a heat source in the winter?
Unless you are using your dryer a whole lot don't bother. The moisture and dust are really bad for allergies, and making it safe requires expense in excess of any savings you'll get

comment Why won't my new Craftsman garage door opener power on?
It really just sounds like it is dead, I'd call for a warranty replacement.
