TL;DR That's the way it is supposed to work. There are some other options now, such as induction cooktops, but for a long time the only two options available for cooktops (whether standalone or, as in your range, together with an oven) were: Natural Gas (many can be converted to propane, but that is a minor difference) Electric Coils Gas cooktops have a ...

Thx for the help. I ended up using a multimeter and discovering that only one of the two sets of wires carried power so i used that for the gfci than carried the rest of the power over to the switch with the second 120V wire. It all works

For the duplex receptacle: With black/red/white you likely had either: 1/2 switched or MWBC split. Either way, you would have had hot (but not neutral) tab removed. The problem is that a standard duplex GFCI receptacle doesn't have that "split" capability. So we need to first figure out what is going on: With the breaker off, open up (uncap) the ...

What about looking for a microwave where the door is hinged on the opposite side of the ones you've tried so far? Most of them have the control panel next to the door, so that should give you plenty of room to open the door - it would open away from the wall now. Edit: Well apparently I was too optimistic regarding the availability of a right-hinged ...

Almost anytime you run into low flow in a faucet it's caused by clogging somewhere between the shutoffs and the aerator. Sometimes it's calcium buildup and sometimes with a multi-turn shutoff valve it's the rubber washers in the valve that deteriorate and occasionally break apart. Since the flow is different hot to cold I'm guessing the issue is in the ...

You might be able to find some small expansion plugs that would be the right size to grab into the channel, but as they’re round, they wouldn’t have a large surface area for contact. Whatever you find to attach to the channel, I wouldn’t recommend hooks attached to individual plugs— I would make something to span two channels, so the rotational force on the ...

You have two or three different appliances on one circuit and there fighting with each other and the noise is coming from either the Washer or dryer and you most likely have a furnace on the same circuit that is causing this problem. I have the same problem and it's my washer making the noise, a clicking noise, it's a new state of the art new washer and it ...

If there's a window in the kitchen, open it and leave it open. Put a fan, a big box fan would be best, but any fan will do, in the window pointing out, to help pull air out of the room. Open other windows in the house to allow fresh air in. Put another fan, again bigger is better, but anything will do, in the doorway to the kitchen blowing fresh air into the ...

Yeah that's a frequent problem. What happened was, the water lines became disturbed by having the pressure removed and then restored and it knocked a bunch of rust and corrosion off the sides of the pipe and those little particles have clogged your faucet at some point. The first thing to check is the aerator. Unscrew it and clean out any debris. Sometimes ...
