    Samsung Refridgerator_RF263AEB XAA - Icing Problem

    Recently, our Samsung Fridge was not cooling lower than 43 - 44 degrees. I noticed ice had formed on the inside of the fridge on the back panel in some of the vents. For expediency, I'll cut to the chase and say that I found out how to remove the back panel that contains the fan and the sensors...

    Ceiling fan - light switch issue

    IT'S FIXED! I was making a simple problem hard. It was indeed the issue with the wrong black wires tied together. Thank you all for your input. I greatly appreciate it.

    Ceiling fan - light switch issue

    JoeD, look again at the new picture I took. I made the change and it did solve the problem. I still have to turn on switch 1; the fan switch or the 2nd switch will not turn on the light. Unless I misunderstood your directions.

    Ceiling fan - light switch issue

    I opened up the outlet again, pushed the switches aside, and took another 2 pictures with the cap nuts and associated wires more visible.

    Ceiling fan - light switch issue

    I had time to look into this again. Before I made any changes, I opened up the wall switch on a bedroom where the ceiling fan is working properly. One switch works the fan; the 2nd switch operates the light. When I compared the 2 bedrooms, wall switches in both rooms are wired identically the...

    Ceiling fan - light switch issue

    "The black connected to the bottom of the left switch is the hot and were you to remove the jumper between the two switches and connect the red to the upper screw of the left switch, the appliance would work." If I remove the red wire on the 2nd switch and move it to the first switch, what...

    Ceiling fan - light switch issue

    I believe I followed you and your explanation (obviously, I'm not an electrician). When I get home later today I'll turn off the breaker to that outlet and make the changes you recommended. Thank you!

    Ceiling fan - light switch issue

    See attached photo. The left switch controls the fan. The right switch controls the light. Both switches need to be 'on' for the light to work. If the left switch (fan) is off; the light will not operate.

    Ceiling fan - light switch issue

    Hmmm...in another other bedroom, the ceiling fan is wired correctly. I compared it with the wiring in the bedroom where I have the issue and it looked to be the same. I need to look closer. Thanks.

    Ceiling fan - light switch issue

    Whoever originally wired the ceiling fan in one of our bedrooms did not wire it properly. There are 2 switches on the wall. The first one operates the fan; the 2nd one operates the light on the fan. Problem: I have to throw both switches for the light to work. If the fan switch is not on, the...

    Water Filtration for Well Water - Cartridge Installation

    Is there a secret to replacing the filter cartridges in the blue canisters depicted in the picture? I'm only asking because I am on a bore well. We have had a LOT of rain the last few weeks. Our water has gotten tinged before but, it has been a long time. When it happened this time, I replaced...
