I noticed the vote to close. Sorry -- in retrospect, I can see how this question could be a little off-topic. I'll be more vigilant in the future and appreciate the answer!

comment How do I determine the “hand” of the door?
If that's the case, then I would likely want a right-handed door handle. Because on the hinge side, the hinges are on the right and the old door knob is on the left. This would seem to conflict with the first diagram. Mike = confused.

I whole-heartily agree with Niall C and GregMac. Working with a live circuit can be VERY dangerous. DON'T DO IT!

comment How can I stop primer from eating my roller handles?
+1 for the Wooster Roller. Very strong frame and reliable. I used it for both priming (cheap PVA brand) and painting (various Behr brands) throughout my 1400 SQFT house. No hiccups.

Is there any ice build up in the freezer? Could be the defrost mechanism. Like Niall said, make/model would be helpful.

comment What is this knob on our fireplace?
I'll defer to the experts but my guess is that it's either fresh air intake or damper control.

comment What can cause foggy/misty/gray water when water heater is turned off?
This seems to be it -- we had to replace the water heater as it was 48 years old (yikes). No issues with the new heater.
