GOFAR Services, LLC - Appliance Repair Houston, TX - Chapter 7UNUSUAL COMPLAINTS andSTORIES FROM THE TRENCHESOccasionally you will run into an unusual problem that requires you to scratch your head a bit. Slept in today and spent most of the day watching TV while doing a few tour-related things (getting posters ready to mail out to venues). Town's buzzing with now-confirmed news that CBS Radio is getting rid of WBCN after 40+ years on the air.
Yea, so aside from prodding people to come to shows and all that, I hate asking things from people on these bloggy bulletin things. If you know the basic systems and what they do, you can usually figure out what's going on. We're playing with a stellar pack: Motion Picture, Kelly Buchannan, and Unisex Salon and should be on around 10pm. Taking off for tour in less than two weeks, which (naturally) means everything needs to get done at the same time. There's a lot in there, but do a search in your browser for Kenny Dobbins; then bear in mind that this is a US citizen being put through this.
It's these businesses that are hiring undocumented workers, business that the right-wing seems intent on shielding from their consequences. It's been such a long process, and while I mostly had a good time working on it, I'm glad it's over. Our friend Dave came over, and started watching Michael Palin's Around The World in 80 Days. But I feel this is really important to take a look at.A lot of people in the Gulf Coast are in a really, really bad shape right now with this whole Hurricane business. Following is a smattering of some of the more unusual or flukey things that I've run into as a home service technician:7-1 KID CAPERSIf your fridge is warm, always check your controls first. I'm downloading the mixes right now and we'll be sending those along to Jeff over at Peerless to get the damn thing mastered this week.
People won't be able to return to their homes for at least one or two months, if there's anything to return to.
All the door money collected will be donated to the United Way's Hurricane Katrina Response Fund (more info on donating below). Many a time, I was called to someone's house on a "warm fridge" complaint, only to find that the controls had been magically shut off. When the little darlings of the household were queried about this divine occurrence, you could literally see the halo forming around their heads.
Saw a lot of familiar faces at Ralph's, and met some new people (didn't see Maryanne, a bummer, but Eric the bartender was super cool). After the first day was under our belts, I was really glad to be in New York again for a stretch longer than a couple of hours. Apart from being the wizard responsible for making Fan The Fury sound like unicorns making love to rainbowsa€”or a double rainbowa€”he's also responsible for sending me a kickass coffee mug for Christmas a year or two ago. The last time we were there for an extended period was during the recording sessions for Fan The Fury. If you think this is shameless, then please read this blog post by Amanda Palmer who has similar thoughts on the subject. As if the world needed another fucking flaccid "Hot Adult Contemporary" station that features Nickelback on their homepage. Standing beside the refrigerator that hadn't moved an inch in all of his (or her) six years, the child would inevitably reply: "What refrigerator, Mom?" I'm sure that my soul will burn in hell, but it was no moral dilemma for me to charge the 30 dollar service fee in such cases. Much as I love the city, I don't think I'd ever be able to live there for longer than a month. If you've already pledged and have been spreading the word to your friends, thank you thank you thank you. It's a known fact that Nickelback sucks, and if you like Nickelback then your musical tastes probably suck too.And yes, there have been moments where I tune to 'BCN and groaned at the sounds of Red Hot Chili Peppers or Sublime or even Pearl Jam (you too, FNX!), but that's not the point. One fellow whose unit I "fixed" in this way lost well over 500 dollars worth of meats from his packed-full deep freezer. Only one time did I see a truly unexplainable occurrence of the controls getting shut off. The stress of trying not to get run over by taxis would surely do me in before the cabbies do.The Glasslands show (aka The Showcasea„?) went well. Like FNX, and WAAF, WBCN was part of a communitya€” hell, this news broke on WFNX and its affiliate The Phoenix.
This was a single lady of about 55 with no kids, who had owned the refrigerator for over 25 years. Although I was one of the lucky ones, I knew kids who literally lost the roof over their heads, and nearly their lives. THESE VERY SAME ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES, WHO HAVE SWORN TO PROTECT AND SERVE, OUR COUNTRY, AND CITIZENS ,ARE BUT SOME, OF THE CORRUPT,GREEDY TRAITORS .ENGAGED IN THE TYRANNY AND TORTURE.
Later on, we were informed of a Mexican restaurant on Bedford Ave (LA Superior?) that was astoundingly good. I knew others whose entire community was completely wiped out of existence.But this isn't a pity party, and this certainly isn't about me.
I can't speak for anyone else, but I hadn't eaten all day and that burrito hit the spot like nobody's business. You might save yourself a lotta time, trouble, and expense.7-2 THE HOLE-IN-THE-WALL GANGOne of the more perplexing problems that I ran into was a young couple (with 4 or 5 kids) that had a warm fridge.
On the topic of Mexican food, I found out through Jen that Anna's Taqueria and Boca Grande (two delicious establishments in their own right) are owned by feuding Japanese siblingsa€”shattering the fervent stereotype that Japanese folks can't make a good taco.We crashed in Brooklyn with our friend Miah, from The Ramblers. Upon investigation, I discovered that the Freon tubes leading to andfrom the evaporator (above it on their side-by-side fridge) were heavily frosted with clear, solid ice. Also, the wires leading to the evaporator fan and defrost heater were heavily caked with solid ice. Most of you, like myself, are hurting for money (who isn't these days, eh?), so all I ask is to do what you can. I didn't understand that frost pattern at all, and I was rushed that day, so I replaced the defrost timer and melted the ice, fully figuring I'd get a callback. Same problem, same weird frost pattern.I took off the evaporator cover panel and just stood there and STARED at the thing for about ten minutes.
But at least the kids didn't do it this time. 7-3 DOOR SEALS AND ALIGNMENTI personally think that door seals are one of the most misunderstood pieces of the refrigerator. Ask a do-it-yourselfer about why his fridge is warm, and the first thing he'll say after "I don't do Freon" is "but let's check the door seals." Door seals rarely have problems over the life of the fridge.


The only ones I've seen go bad are in households that have dogs or cats that like to chew or sharpen their claws on them, or kids (there's those pesky kids again) that like to climb or hang on the refrigerator door.
A really bad door seal problem ismost likely to show up as a defrost problem, due to humid air getting into the fridge. Door seals are magnetically held to the door frame and mullions. A magnetic tip may prevent you from going crazy trying to hold the driver, the screw and the seal at the same time.
The idea is to prevent the plastic inner door liner (or shelving) from drifting around — if you have to re-align it, it can be a long, frustrating, trial-and-error process. The new seal will fit in the same way as the old one came out.You are much more likely to have a door alignment problem or warping. If the measurements indicate that the door is badly out of alignment, re-align it be loosening the hinges slightly (one hinge at a time) and shifting the door around. If it's metal, you may be able to bend it slightly to solve your problem.7-4 MOVING DAYIf you have to move your fridge for any reason, make sure that you keep it upright. If you turn it on its side there's a strong probability that the compressor oil will run out of the compressor and into the condenser, and when you start the fridge, the compressor will burn out within a few hours or even minutes, for lack of lubrication. I've heard of people getting lucky and getting away with it; maybe they just happened to lay it on the "lucky" side of the fridge.
If your fridge has been laid on its side, stand it upright again but don't plug it in for a day or two.
Just hope that either the oil drains back into the compressor or that it didn't run out in the first place. 7-5 A SHOCKING EXPERIENCE (MULLION HEATERS)Once I was called to the home of a little old dog-breeder who had complained of beingshocked while opening his refrigerator door. When I arrived, I couldn't feel anything at all — until once I happened to be leaning against the metal door of his oven (opposite his fridge) when I touched his door — ZAP! I put a volt meter between the two doors and discovered 50 volts!! It turned out that the mullion (anti-sweat) heater (see section 4-1) in his door had shorted, and was grounding wherever it could — right through him to the oven door. I disabled the heater by disconnecting and insulating the heater leads at the base of the door, where they went into the fridge.
The school district has moved to a biometric identification program, saying students will no longer have to use an ID card to buy lunch.A  BIOMETRICS TO TRACK YOUR KIDS!!!!!i»?i»?A TARGETED INDIVIDUALS, THE GREEDY CRIMINALS ARE NOW CONDONING THEIR TECH! This story is made even more interesting by the fact that the little old dog-breeder's wife had just had open-heart surgery and a pacemaker installed three weeks before. I shudder to think what could have happened had she touched the fridge. Another interesting observation about mullion heaters is that if your fridge starts to become warm, one of the first signs may be that the door jamb start to feel downright hot.
This happens when the refrigerator is no longer removing heat from the doorframe and the mullion heater inside.
Upon investigation, I found that a mouse, apparently seeking the warmth of the compressor, had crawled into there and died (whether from the heat of the compressor or from getting struck by the condenser fan, I don't know.) Anyway, he got stuck to the floor pan near the condenser fan and as he dried out, his feet and tail curled up until they finally got stuck in and stopped the condenser fan. This can cause electrical problems, or loose insulation might get caught in the condenser fan.
Icemakers have a water solenoid valve mounted on the back of the fridge, usually behind the back bottom panel, and a water tube that leads straight up the back of the fridge to the icemaker. Door dispensers have a similar water solenoid valve with a water tube that leads beneath the fridge and into the door through a hollow hinge.
Some units were built with a removable interior shelf that also shut off the light by contacting the door switch. If the light does not shut off well before the door is fully closed, test the switch and look at its closing mechanism and see what's happening.7-9 BAD ODORSTo my experience, this is one of the toughest problems to solve. I have been called out on a variety of "bad odor" complaints, and rarely are they solvable. Modern fridges, with few exceptions, have plastic interiors that do absorb odors to some degree, rather than the porcelain interiors standard in days of yore.
If you have an odor problem, it may help to keep an open box of baking soda in there, or to wash out the interior of the fridge with a very mild bleach solution. If your fridge has had a meltdown (thawed out with everything in it), try pulling off whatever panels you can and see if any meat blood or other smelly stuff has gotten under them.
Styrofoam panels can absorb odors, too, but try washing with a mild soap solution. One semi-solvable odor problem that I ran into was a fellow whose fire-engine red fridge was getting warm and it had an absolutely acrid smell within. It turned out that the defrost heater lead within the defrost compartment had shorted out and burned off a bunch of its heavy rubber insulation, then melted itself so the defrost system was not working.
I fixed the fridge, but I do not know if he ever got out the burnt-rubber smell.7-10 FIX THE LITTLE STUFFHave you had a broken door catch or handle? Plastic parts are usually not that expensive; though things like shelves usually must be gotten through the dealer or factory warehouse. Special appliance light bulbs are a couple of bucks at your nearest appliance parts dealer. How much is your peace of mind worth?7-11 STRANGE NOISESActually, there aren't too many things in a fridge that can cause a lot of noise. A few that you might commonly hear are: A rattling or a buzzing noise might be coming from the evaporator or condenser fan hitting something. It may also be that the defrost drain pan or compressor mounts are loose and something is vibrating a bit. A whistling or warbling sound usually is coming from the evaporator fan motor. Replace as described in section 4-3. A hissing or gurgling sound might happen for a few minutes after the compressor shuts off. If there is no evaporator fan running, you may hear the Freon gurgling through the evaporator at any time the fridge is running.7-12 FIRE IN THE FRIDGE!!!Okay, you're the tech. You get a frantic call from a customer saying there's a red glow in the bottom of the freezer in his side-by-side; he's afraid that something's burning. What do you do? If you're me, you grab a screwdriver, reach down to the defrost timer and set it on "defrost" again.
Then you reach into your tool kit for your trusty, dusty extendable inspection mirror. You show the customer, via the mirror, the red-glowing defrost heater. You explain the defrost system and why he's never noticed a red glow before: When the light bulb was working, the interior of the fridge was so bright that he just couldn'tsee that dim red glow. If you know the basic systems and what they do, you can usually figure out what's going on. Paul Weindling, history of medicine professor at Oxford Brookes University, describes his search for the lost victims of Nazi experiments. The chairman of the board at ESL a€” then proprietor of the desert wasteland in Nevada known as a€?Area 51a€? a€” was William Perry, who would be appointed secretary of defense several years later.
If you turn it on its side there's a strong probability that the compressor oil will run out of the compressor and into the condenser, and when you start the fridge, the compressor will burn out within a few hours or even minutes, for lack of lubrication.


If your fridge has been laid on its side, stand it upright again but don't plug it in for a day or two. EUCACH.ORG PanelIn a 2-hour wide-ranging Panel with Alfred Lambremont Webre on the Transhumanist Agenda, Magnus Olsson, Dr. Henning Witte, and Melanie Vritschan, three experts from the European Coalition Against Covert Harassment, revealed recent technological advances in human robotization and nano implant technologies, and an acceleration of what Melanie Vritschan characterized as a a€?global enslavement programa€?.Shift from electromagnetic to scalar wavesThese technologies have now shifted from electromagnetic wave to scalar waves and use super quantum computers in the quantum cloud to control a€?pipesa€? a reference to the brains of humans that have been taken over via DNA, via implants that can be breathed can breach the blood-brain barrier and then controlled via scalar waved on a super-grid. When I arrived, I couldn't feel anything at all — until once I happened to be leaning against the metal door of his oven (opposite his fridge) when I touched his door — ZAP!
Eventually, such 'subvocal speech' systems could be used in spacesuits, in noisy places like airport towers to capture air-traffic controller commands, or even in traditional voice-recognition programs to increase accuracy, according to NASA scientists."What is analyzed is silent, or sub auditory, speech, such as when a person silently reads or talks to himself," said Chuck Jorgensen, a scientist whose team is developing silent, subvocal speech recognition at NASA Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley. This story is made even more interesting by the fact that the little old dog-breeder's wife had just had open-heart surgery and a pacemaker installed three weeks before. We numbered the columns and rows, and we could identify each letter with a pair of single-digit numbers," Jorgensen said. People in noisy conditions could use the system when privacy is needed, such as during telephone conversations on buses or trains, according to scientists."An expanded muscle-control system could help injured astronauts control machines.
If an astronaut is suffering from muscle weakness due to a long stint in microgravity, the astronaut could send signals to software that would assist with landings on Mars or the Earth, for example," Jorgensen explained.
These are processed to remove noise, and then we process them to see useful parts of the signals to show one word from another," Jorgensen said.After the signals are amplified, computer software 'reads' the signals to recognize each word and sound. How much is your peace of mind worth?7-11 STRANGE NOISESActually, there aren't too many things in a fridge that can cause a lot of noise. Our Research and Development Division has been in contact with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the California Department of Corrections, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Massachusetts Department of Correction to run limited trials of the 2020 neural chip implant. We have established representatives of our interests in both management and institutional level positions within these departments.
Federal regulations do not yet permit testing of implants on prisoners, but we have entered nto contractual agreements with privatized health care professionals and specified correctional personnel to do limited testing of our products. We need, however, to expand our testing to research how effective the 2020 neural chip implant performs in those identified as the most aggressive in our society.
In California, several prisoners were identified as members of the security threat group, EME, or Mexican Mafia.
They were brought to the health services unit at Pelican Bay and tranquilized with advanced sedatives developed by our Cambridge,Massachussetts laboratories. The results of implants on 8 prisoners yielded the following results: a€?Implants served as surveillance monitoring device for threat group activity.
However, during that period substantial data was gathered by our research and development team which suggests that the implants exceed expected results. One of the major concerns of Security and the R & D team was that the test subject would discover the chemial imbalance during the initial adjustment period and the test would have to be scurbbed.
However, due to advanced technological developments in the sedatives administered, the 48 hour adjustment period can be attributed t prescription medication given to the test subjects after the implant procedure. One of the concerns raised by R & D was the cause of the bleeding and how to eliminate that problem. Unexplained bleeding might cause the subject to inquire further about his "routine" visit to the infirmary or health care facility. Security officials now know several strategies employed by the EME that facilitate the transmission of illegal drugs and weapons into their correctional facilities.
One intelligence officier remarked that while they cannot use the informaiton that have in a court of law that they now know who to watch and what outside "connections" they have. The prison at Soledad is now considering transferring three subjects to Vacaville wher we have ongoing implant reserach.
Our technicians have promised that they can do three 2020 neural chip implants in less than an hour.
Soledad officials hope to collect information from the trio to bring a 14 month investigation into drug trafficking by correctional officers to a close. Essentially, the implants make the unsuspecting prisoner a walking-talking recorder of every event he comes into contact with. There are only five intelligence officers and the Commisoner of Corrections who actually know the full scope of the implant testing.
In Massachusetts, the Department of Corrections has already entered into high level discussion about releasing certain offenders to the community with the 2020 neural chip implants. Our people are not altogether against the idea, however, attorneys for Intelli-Connection have advised against implant technology outside strick control settings. While we have a strong lobby in the Congress and various state legislatures favoring our product, we must proceed with the utmost caution on uncontrolled use of the 2020 neural chip.
If the chip were discovered in use not authorized by law and the procedure traced to us we could not endure for long the resulting publicity and liability payments. Massachusetts officials have developed an intelligence branch from their Fugitive Task Force Squad that would do limited test runs under tight controls with the pre-release subjects. Correctons officials have dubbed these poetnetial test subjects "the insurance group." (the name derives from the concept that the 2020 implant insures compliance with the law and allows officials to detect misconduct or violations without question) A retired police detective from Charlestown, Massachusetts, now with the intelligence unit has asked us to consider using the 2020 neural chip on hard core felons suspected of bank and armored car robbery. He stated, "Charlestown would never be the same, we'd finally know what was happening before they knew what was happening." We will continue to explore community uses of the 2020 chip, but our company rep will be attached to all law enforcement operations with an extraction crrew that can be on-site in 2 hours from anywhere at anytime.
We have an Intelli-Connection discussion group who is meeting with the Director of Security at Florence, Colorado's federal super maximum security unit.
The initial discussions with the Director have been promising and we hope to have an R & D unit at this important facilitly within the next six months. Napolitano insisted that the department was not planning on engaging in any form of ideological profiling. I will tell him face-to-face that we honor veterans at DHS and employ thousands across the department, up to and including the Deputy Secretary," Ms.
Steve Buyer of Indiana, the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs, called it "inconceivable" that the Obama administration would categorize veterans as a potential threat.
