    Re: tv shuts off...

    Thanks for the advice. I was relieved that you both thought it was the tv and not the house wiring. The tv does seem to be very sensitive and the HDM1 plug already burned out on this thing over a...

    tv shuts off...

    Sometimes, when we unplug anything plugged into one of the living room outlets without first turning it off (like the window box fan, the vacumn or the fan on the wood stove) or, on a couple...

    Re: swapping the position of stove and fridge

    Thanks, Fencepost. I just did a double check and the tubing is milky white (though slightly transparent). It does have a brass compression fitting at the water line and that also has a shut off...

    Re: swapping the position of stove and fridge

    Thanks, everyone. That's all very reassuring. Just to clarify motoguy - the water line I'm talking about is mounted on the wall inside a plastic housing (like a tiny version of the laundry room...

    Re: swapping the position of stove and fridge

    Thanks, Sparky. That was my main concern. Pessimest that I am, I can imagine the hose from the water line on the back of the fridge spraying water all over the 220 outlet that will be directly...

    Re: swapping the position of stove and fridge

    I think all of the cords and the icemaker hose are long enough to simply slide the appliances to their new positions. My concern is the water line on the fridge being so close to a 220 outlet, which...

    swapping the position of stove and fridge

    My new house has a bit of a flaw in the kitchen appliance layout. The stove is located between the fridge and a partial wall. This arrangement pins the stove into a box-like space with no access to...

    Re: unconventional chimney

    Thanks bp21. We're in Missouri.

    That's good advice about the CO/smoke detectors and inspections. I'll have the fire dept out to have a look.

    I have looked all over the internet for a...

    Re: unconventional chimney

    Thanks for the input.

    The chimney is for a wood stove. I believe, but am not 100% positive, that the triple wall stove pipe runs from the stove, through the wall and into the "chimney". And I...

    unconventional chimney

    I've just bought a house/cabin, but have not moved in yet. The chimney is entirely outdoors and seems tall enough. It also has a chimney cap, et al. But to me it looks like a big culvert pipe,...
