    In New Jersey, renting out home & having a baby in August. When we signed the lease the landlord told us the AC cooled the entire downstairs. So, on the first hot day we had it running all day and it did't cool the living room or kitchen, only the dining room where it is located. It is a large, very old, moldy wall 230v window unit installed thru the wall. The thing must be 20 years old, half the knobs are missing, its dirty and moldy inside, very loud and only works on HIGH. It isn't possible to install AC units in the kitchen because of the windows and same with the living room, they are both old, small and crank open with a handle. It gets very warm in both rooms and it isn't summer yet. Add a cranky pregnant woman and baby coming 1/2 way thru the summer and you can understand my concern. I know there aren't any laws saying he has to provide AC, but he has to repair an AC and IF the existing AC is beyond repair, it should be replaced. He has been cheap with other repairs, often replacing items in the house with cheaper versions. He offered to put a small window unit in the dining room but that doesn't help us, we spend most of our time in the kitchen and living room's. So, if I go and purchase and have a proper modern AC installed and tell him I am deducting $50 a month from the rent until it is paid off, what is his recourse? Can he lock us our? Can he take us to court? Our lease runs for another year at $3k a month. Thoughts?

  • Water softener drain hose in garage?

    Water softener drain hose in garage?

    Best answer: my guess is it's the only drain you have without opening up the floor. BUT, the overflow for the water heater NEEDS the air gap to make the drain work properly, so you'll have to contreive some method of having both connections plus the air gap. maybe look for the air gap device used by some dishwashers... show more

I viewed many websites and videos saying that the most effective way is electric fence. Question:1: Hot line and Ground line of electric fence are separate, hot is high above, and Ground in down to ground. Raccoon would not be shocked. ?? i.e. Raccoon would NOT touch the Hot and Ground at the same time?? Question 2: can I install the Hot and Ground lines side by side about 3 inches apart???

    Mower was running fine, then started sputtering and after a few minutes quit. Because I hit a rock, I though I had maybe sheared the flywheel pin. But I disassembled and found pin okay. Replaced with new pin, but made no difference. Has plenty of fresh gas. I replaced the spark plug with new one. The kicker is that it won t start of even sputter with a shot of starting fluid, which pretty much eliminates a fuel problem. Where do I go from here?

  • Is there a way around this Safe Step tub issue?

    My mother recently bought a Safe Step tub for $23,000. She learned that she can't use it because she can't close the door once seated. Is there any way around this? I'm a slender 6 foot man and I struggle to close the door. I called them and they said no refunds and no door swing alternatives.

    Ceiling area and obvious a repair was done?

    Best answer: Really all you need to do is lightly patch the broken edge, which is highly visible. With spackle or drywall mud. If that edge is resolved the whole area will not be noticeable to others after painting. YOU know its there so you notice, but other wont.

    It runs good for about 45 minutes then sputters a little then sputters more often over a period of the next 15 minutes then stops running. It won't restart until it cools down.
