Can anyone recommend an inexpensive handyman (frum or otherwise) to put some screws in some chairs. Relatively simple job.
Thanks!
If the parts are connected with dowel rods I think you're better off taking it apart and regluing it as opposed to adding screws. Doable yourself if you have time or you can have a handyman do it, but I wouldn't start adding screws if not necessary.

Transformers are generally not the issue. When people say "the transformer blew up" it's usually the fuse, transformers blowing up are exceedingly rare. It's all the rest of the equipment causing issues, for example when a tree snags a power line, it should trip the fuse to prevent everything from overheating.
Just so happens to be that the last atleast one of the last blackouts were blown up transformers, there was a transformer on fire, at the corner of cross & Faraday.

I assume you're talking about this, there isn't even a transformer in the picture.

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Gas water heater flame keeps going out.
Probably needs a pilot cleaning or new thermocouple.
Any recommendations?
Needs to be able to fix tomorrow, reasonable rate, & reliable.
Thanks.

Simplest self fix.

Turn off the gas, unscrew the door and take out the burner assembly (looks pretty similar to a stove burner) and just vacuum off the accumulated rust/metal

True.
But if it's a faulty thermocouple?

Compressor certainly can trip circuit breaker

If compressor worth getting new unit?

what if not compressor can it be the wiring (nothing to do with ac unit) that is causing the trip of the circuit breaker?

Anything’s possible. Usually not worth replacing the compressor on a 20 year old unit. Time to get an HVAC guy to have a look.
