Ist it possible to fix aluminum tubing in a freezer?


How to Stop Refrigerator Water Leaks
By Gary Hedstrom, Peg Hedstrom, and Judy Ondrla Tremore from How to Fix Everything For Dummies
When you see water under a refrigerator, check the front legs and/or clean the drain hole. Water (actually condensation) is supposed to run from inside the refrigerator into a drain hole, and then into a drip pan underneath, where it evaporates. If the refrigerator is completely level or tipped slightly forward, the water may not be able to flow into the drain. All you have to do to get it working is to adjust the front legs so that the refrigerator tips back slightly. That tilt also makes the door swing closed after you turn away from the refrigerator. Here’s what to do:
Have a helper tip the fridge slightly back so you can get under it.
Unscrew the front legs a couple turns to raise them. (Don’t take them off, though.)
Put the refrigerator down.
Use a level on the front edge of the refrigerator to make sure...

I have a compaq laptop that runs the cpu at 55 °C which is equal to 130 - +°F. I have constructed a fan extraction system using my computer desk that has two fans underneath extracting the hot air from the bottom of the laptop unit and 2 fans directing cool air into the laptop from behind. I am only getting a 5C temperature drop. That is when the computer is idle. If the computer is actively processing this temperature goes up. The core temperature is constant 4 degrees high the cpu.
I have read that using a hot water bottle is an effective way of reducing the temperature. I actually tried this method and it gave me much the same result as the fans. see this site
Has anyone tinkered with the notion of using a sealed copper coiled tubing with water or coolant. That the laptop can sit on via a thin aluminum plate as its base and acting as a heat transference agent then using the natural heat...

Are u sure its the water tube? could be condensation?

Freezer /fridge water/ice in fridge and or freezer

Usually due to CONDENSATION due to bad door seals or a plugged evaporator drain line? Can use a soft flexable tubing and very hot water to clean it out. Bad door seals usually need replacement, but u can use a blow dryer and something to pry it closer to the door wall while blowing hot air on to it. To create a seal, to test for bad door seals place a dollar bill in between the door and wall of fridge where it closes. Then slide out the dollar bill with door closed. It should offer some resistance and not be easy to pull out.

Fix any gaps in the door seal.Pack out the seal underneath the areas where the door seal has the gaps. This can be done with a small strip of weather stripping, as shown here, or a bit of tightly rolled up paper under the door seal. Alternatively, you can heat the door seal up with a hair dryer to fix the gaps. This softens the door...

I would have never believed anyone was using aluminum foil to store stuff in the freezer. Mom

always used wax paper/ freezer wrap.

What is freezer paper?
Freezer paper is thick paper with a plastic or wax coating on one side. It differs from parchment, which has no coating, and wax paper, which has a coating on both sides.

What is freezer paper used for?
Freezer paper was traditionally used to wrap up meats for freezing. The meats would be wrapped against the waxy side to protect the surface and color of the meat, as well as to help prevent moisture loss, but the paper on the outside meant that it was a surface that could be written on for labeling purposes.

Freezer paper is similar, and sometimes the same kind, of paper used at the meat or seafood counter. This type of paper is preferred because the plastic side prevents the juices from meat and seafood from soaking and leaking through.

If moisture from the food item is doing the...

I am going to share my story of how I fixed my Bosch KGN53X00AU. It had worked well for about 5 years until one day a layer of ice started forming at the bottom of the freezer compartment. After breaking and cleaning the ice for several weeks I started looking for information of forums. Defrosting did not help. Customer support line was totally useless.

Finally I decided to fix it myself. Nothing was wrong inside, so I decided to check the drain pipe at the back of the fridge.

Before going into the details I would like to remind you where the water comes from. If we look at how a fridge works ( we can see two heat exchangers internal (blue) and external (red):

Water from the air freezes on the internal heat exchanger and can forms a thick layer of ice. Back in the old days people had to defrost their fridge regularly to remove that ice. Modern fridges do it automatically. The internal heat exchanger has a heating...

Aluminium tubing is semi-flexible piping that is used to construct fences, truck racks and other structures that are constantly exposed to moisture. Aluminium is corrosion resistant so it endures well under these circumstances. Aluminium can be difficult to solder to itself and other metals using traditional methods because oxidation occurs, which weakens the joint. However, with proper preparation of the aluminium tubing you can successfully solder it to other metals.

Do an online search for "Showboat Custom Coatings." They make two products that so far are working out as advertised for me. They are quite new. And no, I'm in no way affiliated with them and don't make anything off an endorsement.

The products are a form of liquid ceramic. Someone mentioned Woody Wax. When you wipe that on, you once again get that deep lustre and all the cloudy and milky stuff goes away, right? Rupp Alumaguard is even better and will last a little longer. But they both eventually evaporate away and you're back to the cloudy.

Their SB 230 product is the clear that goes on moderately dull tired anodized alum. It looks just like Alumaguard, but stays that way. You get that beautiful deep rich shine like it just got wetted. But, as has been pointed out, you will never hide the pitting. Moderate pitting always has a little mound of corrosion on top of the pit, and you can carefully knock that down with bronze wool or very fine wet sandpapers (1200 is the coarsest...

A member of The Wall community asked this question and I thought the conversation that followed was interesting:

"How many times can PEX freeze before bursting? At what temp will it only take once? Will it just expand and contract forever without damaged? Does it get significantly weaker? "I'm not asking about PEX in a slab, but under a floor for example. Or would a cooper shower riser split before the PEX, or would the PEX expand enough to protect it? I've seen PEX-Aluminum-PEX pipe in a floor freeze, and badly. I've seen the results from a "test" under the floor(my nephew did that one). But what do you think?"

And this is what a member had to say:

"We had some 1" PEX run in an attic that, due to several weird circumstances, froze up solid - like about 70 feet in length. It was stiff as a board. My man went up there with a heat gun, and after about two hours of thawing, we got it...

This is a list of problems that have been solved by Angus MacGyver. Demonstrating resourcefulness, he employs his knowledge of science, technology and outdoorsman ship to resolve what are often life or death crises. His ingenuity is normally put to the test under dire circumstances with little time or specialized resources with which to work. (Though it does seem he frequently has a Swiss Army knife and a roll of duct tape with him.)

Pilot (1x01)Edit

MacGyver shorts out a missile timer with a bent paper clip causing the timer to stop, thus keeping the missile from detonating. MacGyver rigs a machine gun with a cord, string, stick, and matches so that when the string burns through the machine gun falls and is triggered by the stick and begins firing (while still being held by the cord). MacGyver makes a "Rocket Thruster" by hitting a flare gun with a rock, launching him and a man he rescues off of a mountain where he later releases a parachute and makes a swift...

How is silicone sealant made?

Post 41

A couple of answers to all the questions here:

@KipMom: Silicone isn't good for a mug. It's better to find glues suited to ceramic and glass repair and then ideally don't use the mug (I wouldn't trust glues with hot liquids in them anyway). Same would be suggested for coffee filter guy: there are different kinds of plastics and your basket is more likely a plastic not a silicone (ABS - plumbing style plastic - has glues but your filter is likely not ABS...)

Sunroof/windows: Yes, this is what silicone is commonly used for, google for how to repair leaking windows.

Aquarium: Google for fish aquarium forums as there is discussion there on what is compatible.

Silicone adheres only to silicone but

use the same type. In your...

It wasn't trendy, funny, nor was it coined on Twitter, but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined 2010. Unlike in 2008, change was no longer a campaign slogan. But, the term still held a lot of weight. Here's an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in 2010:

The national debate can arguably be summarized by the question: In the past two years, has there been enough change? Has there been too much? Meanwhile, many Americans continue to face change in their homes, bank accounts and jobs. Only time will tell if the latest wave of change Americans voted for in the midterm elections will result in a negative or positive...
