Go and watch somebody change out service on an old stucco covered house like mine and you'll pay ANYTHING not to do it yourself.

You are going to save an appreciable amount of money buying the material yourself.

Oh please.
The only reason you are posting is to get your signature line shown. I call it "signature line spam".

When the compressor on my ice machine or beverage refrigerator kicks on, my TV flashes in and out. What can I do?

Welcome to the site.
Are they on the same circuit? Just a guess but you might have loose connection in an outlet or in the breaker box.

Plug both into outlets that are closer to the load center but still on the same breaker. Which outlet is upstream of which may not be so easy to determine.

If you eventually find an outlet where this doesn't happen then the loose connection is between this outlet and the next one downstream.
