When the sound waves move the eardrum, these bones move and pass on the vibration to the much smaller oval shaped window of the cochlea (the bit that looks like a shell). The cochlea has fluid in it, which moves due to the vibrations and bends hairs on the outside of cells lining the cochlea. Some of these hair cells (the 'inner hair cells') create an electrical impulse (signal), which is sent along the auditory nerve to the brain. Most of the hair cells (the 'outer' ones), however, are like tiny muscle cells, which react to the vibrations in the fluid by trembling and shaking.
When you really want to listen to something you tell your brain to concentrate on that sound. If your ears are healthy and are both working well, they can 'turn down' or 'tune out' other sounds while you concentrate on what you want to hear. With healthy ears you can choose what you want to listen to, but you can't choose what you hear. Some people have problems understanding what they are hearing because their ears don't work well and they don't hear all the sounds. They think that you select (choose) what you are going to hear and what you definitely don't want to hear! Do you pretend you haven't heard sometimes - especially when it is something you don't want to hear? Like every other part of your body, ears need looking after if they are going to work as well as they can. Sometimes your ears feel funny when you are on a plane, going through a tunnel or driving up hills. We've provided this information to help you to understand important things about staying healthy and happy.
AMBIENT PASS-THROUGH is available as an option which allows the user to tune the amount of ambient sound which enters the ear, reducing occlusion (stuffy head) effect often encountered with in-ear products.

YOU don't know about me without you have read a book by the name of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; but that ain't no matter. Now the way that the book winds up is this: A Tom and me found the money that the robbers hid in the cave, and it made us rich. The widow she cried over me, and called me a poor lost lamb, and she called me a lot of other names, too, but she never meant no harm by it.
Her sister, Miss Watson, a tolerable slim old maid, with goggles on, had just come to live with her, and took a set at me now with a spelling-book. I set down again, a-shaking all over, and got out my pipe for a smoke; for the house was all as still as death now, and so the widow wouldn't know.
WE went tiptoeing along a path amongst the trees back towards the end of the widow's garden, stooping down so as the branches wouldn't scrape our heads.
Tom he made a sign to mea€”kind of a little noise with his moutha€”and we went creeping away on our hands and knees. As soon as Tom was back we cut along the path, around the garden fence, and by and by fetched up on the steep top of the hill the other side of the house. We went to a clump of bushes, and Tom made everybody swear to keep the secret, and then showed them a hole in the hill, right in the thickest part of the bushes.
Everybody said it was a real beautiful oath, and asked Tom if he got it out of his own head. They talked it over, and they was going to rule me out, because they said every boy must have a family or somebody to kill, or else it wouldn't be fair and square for the others.
Then they all stuck a pin in their fingers to get blood to sign with, and I made my mark on the paper. Little Tommy Barnes was asleep now, and when they waked him up he was scared, and cried, and said he wanted to go home to his ma, and didn't want to be a robber any more. So they all made fun of him, and called him cry-baby, and that made him mad, and he said he would go straight and tell all the secrets. Ben Rogers said he couldn't get out much, only Sundays, and so he wanted to begin next Sunday; but all the boys said it would be wicked to do it on Sunday, and that settled the thing.
WELL, I got a good going-over in the morning from old Miss Watson on account of my clothes; but the widow she didn't scold, but only cleaned off the grease and clay, and looked so sorry that I thought I would behave awhile if I could. Pap he hadn't been seen for more than a year, and that was comfortable for me; I didn't want to see him no more. I thought all this over for two or three days, and then I reckoned I would see if there was anything in it.
I went down to the front garden and clumb over the stile where you go through the high board fence.
Miss Watson's nigger, Jim, had a hair-ball as big as your fist, which had been took out of the fourth stomach of an ox, and he used to do magic with it. I stood a-looking at him; he set there a-looking at me, with his chair tilted back a little. He took it and bit it to see if it was good, and then he said he was going down town to get some whisky; said he hadn't had a drink all day.
Next day he was drunk, and he went to Judge Thatcher's and bullyragged him, and tried to make him give up the money; but he couldn't, and then he swore he'd make the law force him. Some horses appear to beA  unusually touchy, angry, dangerous, nervous, pig headed, stubborn, left or right handed, stiff, poorly gaited etc.
This rule basically suggests that a€?manya€™ and in fact in my experience with horses a€?mosta€™ altered behaviours have a physical root cause!A  It is obviously important to follow this rule because most physical causes are a€?treatablea€™ whilst attempts at treating psychological disorders can be less rewarding .
Let us now take a closer look at some of the altered behaviours of our equine friends and explore the possible physical causes of these.
1) Races well in Sydney (clockwise) but doesna€™t handle Melbourne tracks (anticlockwise) the reverse too well . TREATMENT:- A respiratory workup, followed by appropriate surgery and rehabilitation protocols. TREATMENT - Sweating has been reduced in some cases where the condition has not progressed to a€?non-sweatinga€™.
As much as these are a€? learneda€™ habits often associated with boxed horses and boredom, their frequency & intensity are very often increased in horses suffering from other physically abnormal conditions. Aside from the odd case of a€?ear mitea€™ these are most often a€?hyper-responsivea€™ cases involving NP triggered by trauma to upper cervical joint complexes.
TREATMENT :- several medical, sunglasses, and a positive response in some early cases to CVMUA. Horses with breathing problems are almost always worse on heavy tracks as more muscular effort goes into limb control and less into breathing control. If lameness workups are negative or lameness treatment is unsuccessful then you should always consider NP. Horses with pharyngeal breathing problems often cheat by taking a little a€?emergency aira€™ through their mouths ( mouth breathe) during exercise. Could be just a horse with speed and no stamina, but you should always try to eliminate breathing problems. Skin blood supply ( nutrient supply) is under the control of the sympathetic nervous system which is also involved in the neuropathic pain NP cycle.
TREATMENT:-A  have the horse examined for gastric ulceration and then if significant treat with appropriate medication. As the great Horatio Hayes wrote this problem is more often the fault of the limb that doesna€™t remove itself in time rather than that of the striking hoof. There are many causes including poor racing surfaces and ill health but also occurs at with some horses that suffer from LCH of the forelimbs. Poor or reduced nutrient blood supply to laminar tissues of hoof means minimal growth rates and poor quality horn.
As stated before most choke ( pharyngeal collapse and displacement of the soft palate) occurs when the horse is asked for maximum effort or stride and thence head and neck are extended. In the simplest terms neuropathic pain (NP) unlike orthopaedic pain ( joint, tendon ligament) is not an inflammatory condition and therefore will not respond to anti-inflammatory medication like bute!
A combination of severe gastric ulceration and pre race apprehension can occasionally lead to colic. Some throat coughs ( not a€?deepa€™ chest coughing) are due to the irritation that occurs when a horses palate displaces out of sequence.
The likelihood of a horses airway collapsing increases proportionately with the pressure applied to the airways. Research over the last 20 years has revealed that many of the altered behaviours that were previously thought of simply as a€?bad habitsa€™ are in fact symptoms of physical problems and not psychological.
NOTE-The appropriate person should be an equine veterinarian who has had enough experience dealing with problems in these specific areas. In conclusion - there are some abnormal behaviours which are purely environmental but the vast majority have physical abnormalities triggering them. Noise cancelling ear plugs can be a great way to get some sleep when ambient noises may distract you. This ultimate softness series of Hearos foam earplugs are made in the USA, which carries a level of quality that many foreign manufacturers can’t equal. Each earplug is suggested to last at least 5 days, and longer depending on the amount of ear wax you produce.
There are few things better than a large pack of earplugs that can help you get a good night’s sleep. One interesting thing to note about Flents is that they can actually be run through the washer and dryer and then reused.
It has been a few years and overall my ear is better but from time to time it still gets a minor full feeling.

The hammer is touching the ear drum so it shakes when the sound comes through, and the movement goes right through the anvil to the stirrup, which is touching the window of the cochlea.
They work like high quality amplifiers and make the vibrations much stronger and clearer for the smaller number of inner hair cells. If your outer hair cells have been damaged by too much loud noise, what you want to hear can get mixed up and smothered by the other sounds around. You need to let more air into the inside of your ear or let some out to balance the air pressure on each side of your ear drum. This lets air through the Eustachian tube into the middle ear, your ears will feel like they go 'pop' and you will be able to hear normally again.
However, if you feel sick or unhappy, it is important to tell your mum or dad, a teacher or another grown-up.
The shadings have not been done in a haphazard fashion, or by guesswork; but painstakingly, and with the trustworthy guidance and support of personal familiarity with these several forms of speech. She put me in them new clothes again, and I couldn't do nothing but sweat and sweat, and feel all cramped up. A She said all a body would have to do there was to go around all day long with a harp and sing, forever and ever.
A By and by they fetched the niggers in and had prayers, and then everybody was off to bed. Well, after a long time I heard the clock away off in the town go booma€”booma€”booma€”twelve licks; and all still againa€”stiller than ever. A Well, likely it was minutes and minutes that there warn't a sound, and we all there so close together. A He leaned his back up against a tree, and stretched his legs out till one of them most touched one of mine. A Tom said he slipped Jim's hat off of his head and hung it on a limb right over him, and Jim stirred a little, but he didn't wake. A We went down the hill and found Jo Harper and Ben Rogers, and two or three more of the boys, hid in the old tanyard. A He said, some of it, but the rest was out of pirate-books and robber-books, and every gang that was high-toned had it. A But Tom give him five cents to keep quiet, and said we would all go home and meet next week, and rob somebody and kill some people. A They agreed to get together and fix a day as soon as they could, and then we elected Tom Sawyer first captain and Jo Harper second captain of the Gang, and so started home. A I says to myself, if a body can get anything they pray for, why don't Deacon Winn get back the money he lost on pork?
A He used to always whale me when he was sober and could get his hands on me; though I used to take to the woods most of the time when he was around.
A He said there was loads of them there, anyway; and he said there was A-rabs there, too, and elephants and things.
A I got an old tin lamp and an iron ring, and went out in the woods and rubbed and rubbed till I sweat like an Injun, calculating to build a palace and sell it; but it warn't no use, none of the genies come. I had been to school most all the time and could spell and read and write just a little, and could say the multiplication table up to six times seven is thirty-five, and I don't reckon I could ever get any further than that if I was to live forever.
Whenever I got uncommon tired I played hookey, and the hiding I got next day done me good and cheered me up.
A I reached for some of it as quick as I could to throw over my left shoulder and keep off the bad luck, but Miss Watson was in ahead of me, and crossed me off. A His hair was long and tangled and greasy, and hung down, and you could see his eyes shining through like he was behind vines. When I'd read about a half a minute, he fetched the book a whack with his hand and knocked it across the house. When he had got out on the shed he put his head in again, and cussed me for putting on frills and trying to be better than him; and when I reckoned he was gone he come back and put his head in again, and told me to mind about that school, because he was going to lay for me and lick me if I didn't drop that.
So he took him to his own house, and dressed him up clean and nice, and had him to breakfast and dinner and supper with the family, and was just old pie to him, so to speak.
A He said he reckoned a body could reform the old man with a shotgun, maybe, but he didn't know no other way. If anyone is to be consulted ( professional person) it would seem logical to call in an equine psychiatrist.
Horses being such large animals are often best treated under anaesthetic using a method referred to as a CVMUA ( cervical vertebral mobilisation under anaesthetic.).
When in will lean back attempting to get out the back ( not the front) - This horse is anticipatingA  a a€?bad experiencea€™ quite possibly some form of asphyxiation or asthmatic type sensation, that is a a€?respiratory or a€?breathing problema€™.
Increased sensitivity means that when you leg up a 52 kg rider the horse senses a 520 kg rider and responds accordingly. Walkers have quit walking once they were able to breathe properly &A  treatment for NP can reduce there propensity to weave. In addition a significant percentage dona€™t make any noise and are therefore not being considered for a€?breathing problema€™ workups. They are actually still breathing but inefficiently so they will eventually stop as if shot.
If on the inside of horses may appear not to try until they end up out the back and then suddenly pick up the bit and charge home down the extreme outside. As much as these are asthmatic type horses they can often be helped by reducing the pressure on lungs by improving upper airway supply. Horse shifts try to transfer weight off fore quarters onto hinds when working to relieve pressure on sensitive fore feet.
Health Test - Healthy hoof will wear aluminium's away whilst poor hoof is the opposite a€?shoe wears it downa€™ particularly in the heal area.


What is less well understood is why certain individuals seem to be more prone to suffering from this condition. If a horse is concerned about the possible consequences of extension then it wona€™t and will more likely adopt a shorter stride and head neck lift position.
If there is a poor or nil response to anti-inflammatory medication then start thinking NP!! Horses with LCH ( laminar corial hypersensitivity) will often try to avoid this then more a€?painfula€™ gait. Should also check for a throat condition that allows air to fill the stomach during exercise. You might be surprised how much weight horses will put on once breathing problems are dealt with.
Because of the increasing complexity of different areas of veterinary medicine and surgery we are seeing more and more veterinarians concentrating on specific areas. Many horses with breathing problems DON'T MAKE NOISES and SCOPE NORMALLYa€™ ( standing scope). A horseman's approach to training is along the lines of the better the horse feels the better it will run.A  Horsemen believe that altered behaviour is the horses means of communicating concern. Personally I have found that they are out there but are usually quiet individuals who dona€™t seek the attention of the press. Particularly if you are in a noisy environment or if every sound tends to rouse you, these can be the difference between a night of relaxing sleep almost every night and virtual insomnia with all the problems that can cause. As well, buying American made goods like these can help you sleep easily at night knowing that you’re keeping jobs in the country. If you don’t produce much, these earplugs can last for 10 days per pair or even longer.
Just like with other foam earplugs, these Hearos need to be inserted by lifting the top of your ear and rolling the earplugs into a tight cylinder. For example, these Flents Quiet Please ear plugs are a 50 pack of white foam that can help you overcome loud snoring or other types of ambient sound that may be keeping you up at night. While ear plugs are bound to get lost sometimes, this can lead to a well maintained pair lasting as long as a month or more apiece.
It seems to be triggered by loud noise such as a noisy environment, or by listening to headphones for too long.
If it is not running, see Chapter 5.Some refrigerators are very quiet and smooth when they operate. Pretty soon I heard a twig snap down in the dark amongst the treesa€”something was a stirring. A But I said no; he might wake and make a disturbance, and then they'd find out I warn't in. Afterwards Jim said the witches be witched him and put him in a trance, and rode him all over the State, and then set him under the trees again, and hung his hat on a limb to show who done it.
A So we unhitched a skiff and pulled down the river two mile and a half, to the big scar on the hillside, and went ashore. A It swore every boy to stick to the band, and never tell any of the secrets; and if anybody done anything to any boy in the band, whichever boy was ordered to kill that person and his family must do it, and he mustn't eat and he mustn't sleep till he had killed them and hacked a cross in their breasts, which was the sign of the band. A I was most ready to cry; but all at once I thought of a way, and so I offered them Miss Watsona€”they could kill her. A Well, about this time he was found in the river drownded, about twelve mile above town, so people said. A They had come up from the quarry and stood around the stile a while, and then went on around the garden fence. A So I went to him that night and told him pap was here again, for I found his tracks in the snow. A And after supper he talked to him about temperance and such things till the old man cried, and said he'd been a fool, and fooled away his life; but now he was a-going to turn over a new leaf and be a man nobody wouldn't be ashamed of, and he hoped the judge would help him and not look down on him. Think about someone asking you to enter their private pool where they had tried to drown you the week before. The same horse is often described as having a€?shouldera€™ and or foot problems and is a a€?short stridera€™. They are often short gaited and may also have poor hoof wall texture which leads to increased wear. 90% of a horses spinal mobility or range of movement (ROM) is in its neck ( cervical vertebral joints). May also have a tendency to pull in work = try to get it over with a€?the sooner the bettera€™. They are actually holding their upper airways or throat open ( increased muscle tension) in an attempt to try and prevent it collapsing and thence a€?chokinga€™. This is often because they are anxious to a€?get it over witha€™ and end up using up too much fuel too quickly. Reduced cervical or neck mobility means reduced shoulder mobility and reduced fore limb gait.
Horses with increased base levels of corial sensitivity are more likely to suffer from this condition. Passing gases at the other end could reduce the increased intra abdominal pressures caused by swallowing air. Treadmill scoping ( at exercise) will expose more of these silent breathing problems BUT NOT ALL! With the neutral coloration of these foam earplugs, they are barely noticeable and won’t stand out wherever you go. That means that a six pack may be able to last you almost 4 years of continuous usage before you have to pick up more of them. This way they can expand properly into your ear and provide you with their maximum level of protection. With these ear plugs, machinery, heavy equipment, hand tools, music or just loud roommates can be tuned out with ease.
That means that a pack of 200 could conceivably last 15 years or more — not bad for a product that costs under forty dollars.
A Well, Judge Thatcher he took it and put it out at interest, and it fetched us a dollar a day apiece all the year rounda€”more than a body could tell what to do with. A Then I set down in a chair by the window and tried to think of something cheerful, but it warn't no use. A Miss Watson's big nigger, named Jim, was setting in the kitchen door; we could see him pretty clear, because there was a light behind him. Then Tom said he hadn't got candles enough, and he would slip in the kitchen and get some more. A And next time Jim told it he said they rode him down to New Orleans; and, after that, every time he told it he spread it more and more, till by and by he said they rode him all over the world, and tired him most to death, and his back was all over saddle-boils.
Tom poked about amongst the passages, and pretty soon ducked under a wall where you wouldn't a noticed that there was a hole. And nobody that didn't belong to the band could use that mark, and if he did he must be sued; and if he done it again he must be killed. A We used to hop out of the woods and go charging down on hog-drivers and women in carts taking garden stuff to market, but we never hived any of them.
A He said if I warn't so ignorant, but had read a book called Don Quixote, I would know without asking. A I started out, after breakfast, feeling worried and shaky, and wondering where it was going to fall on me, and what it was going to be. A But he said HE was satisfied; said he was boss of his son, and he'd make it warm for HIM. NOTE ill-fitting saddles and poor riders can exacerbate the problem but they are not the cause. These horses will try to avoid stretching out their necks and will thus climb, drop their hind quarters and not swim efficiently.
These horses if taken to a hot humid climate will often progress to a€?non-sweatinga€™ as sweat glands fatigue due to being constantly overworked. Interestingly as much as these horses are a type, similar to human asthmatics, it does appear that upper airways problems are often the trigger for these attacks.
The harder the work load, the more they mouth breathe and the more they contaminate their lungs.
Laminitis can not always be avoided but returning laminar corial sensitivities to normal or near normal will reduce the likelihood. As with all services these days it is up to you to explore and investigate the possibilities. Their noise reduction levels are 32 dB, which can virtually cancel out fairly quiet sounds such as passing cars.
A six pack of Hearos, which amounts to 120 pairs that may last for many months of regular usage, is just over $53.
One problem that people with sensitive ears have reported is that these can get uncomfortable after a few hours of usage.
In addition to protecting your hearing with some of the best protection available, these Flents do not fall out or become uncomfortable if you like to sleep on your side like a lot of people do. When you got to the table you couldn't go right to eating, but you had to wait for the widow to tuck down her head and grumble a little over the victuals, though there warn't really anything the matter with them,a€”that is, nothing only everything was cooked by itself.
A I asked her if she reckoned Tom Sawyer would go there, and she said not by a considerable sight.
A Jim was monstrous proud about it, and he got so he wouldn't hardly notice the other niggers.
A We went along a narrow place and got into a kind of room, all damp and sweaty and cold, and there we stopped.
A And if anybody that belonged to the band told the secrets, he must have his throat cut, and then have his carcass burnt up and the ashes scattered all around, and his name blotted off of the list with blood and never mentioned again by the gang, but have a curse put on it and be forgot forever. A Living in a house and sleeping in a bed pulled on me pretty tight mostly, but before the cold weather I used to slide out and sleep in the woods sometimes, and so that was a rest to me. A There is ways to keep off some kinds of bad luck, but this wasn't one of them kind; so I never tried to do anything, but just poked along low-spirited and on the watch-out.
A Jim got out his hair-ball and said something over it, and then he held it up and dropped it on the floor. A The old man said that what a man wanted that was down was sympathy, and the judge said it was so; so they cried again. Then they tucked the old man into a beautiful room, which was the spare room, and in the night some time he got powerful thirsty and clumb out on to the porch-roof and slid down a stanchion and traded his new coat for a jug of forty-rod, and clumb back again and had a good old time; and towards daylight he crawled out again, drunk as a fiddler, and rolled off the porch and broke his left arm in two places, and was most froze to death when somebody found him after sun-up.
These horses suffer from loss of ROM ( range of movement) and often experience pain when they try to bend.
Between saving your hearing from loud sounds and letting you get a good night’s sleep, these are an incredible deal.
The fact that these ear plugs are white means that you can find them in fairly dark rooms with relative ease. It’s generally worth your while to get the green case, which allows you to carry several pairs with you but not the entire package, as the green case is practically free and very convenient. A I never seen anybody but lied one time or another, without it was Aunt Polly, or the widow, or maybe Mary. A In a barrel of odds and ends it is different; things get mixed up, and the juice kind of swaps around, and the things go better. A Here she was a-bothering about Moses, which was no kin to her, and no use to anybody, being gone, you see, yet finding a power of fault with me for doing a thing that had some good in it. A If you are with the quality, or at a funeral, or trying to go to sleep when you ain't sleepya€”if you are anywheres where it won't do for you to scratch, why you will itch all over in upwards of a thousand places. A Niggers would come miles to hear Jim tell about it, and he was more looked up to than any nigger in that country. A He said there was hundreds of soldiers there, and elephants and treasure, and so on, but we had enemies which he called magicians; and they had turned the whole thing into an infant Sunday-school, just out of spite.
A He had one ankle resting on t'other knee; the boot on that foot was busted, and two of his toes stuck through, and he worked them now and then.
A And when they come to look at that spare room they had to take soundings before they could navigate it. If your horse is having trouble jumping have a spinal examination performed to see if there is any evidence of stiffness ( reduced ROM) and or NP. Even sounds that would normally begin to take away your ability to hear over time can be made far more manageable with these earplugs. A Aunt Pollya€”Tom's Aunt Polly, she isa€”and Mary, and the Widow Douglas is all told about in that book, which is mostly a true book, with some stretchers, as I said before. A But Tom Sawyer he hunted me up and said he was going to start a band of robbers, and I might join if I would go back to the widow and be respectable.
Then away out in the woods I heard that kind of a sound that a ghost makes when it wants to tell about something that's on its mind and can't make itself understood, and so can't rest easy in its grave, and has to go about that way every night grieving. A But Tom wanted to resk it; so we slid in there and got three candles, and Tom laid five cents on the table for pay. A Strange niggers would stand with their mouths open and look him all over, same as if he was a wonder. Then we got out, and I was in a sweat to get away; but nothing would do Tom but he must crawl to where Jim was, on his hands and knees, and play something on him. A Niggers is always talking about witches in the dark by the kitchen fire; but whenever one was talking and letting on to know all about such things, Jim would happen in and say, "Hm!
A I went out in the woods and turned it over in my mind a long time, but I couldn't see no advantage about ita€”except for the other people; so at last I reckoned I wouldn't worry about it any more, but just let it go. A Well, I couldn't see no advantage in going where she was going, so I made up my mind I wouldn't try for it.
A Pretty soon a spider went crawling up my shoulder, and I flipped it off and it lit in the candle; and before I could budge it was all shriveled up. This miserableness went on as much as six or seven minutes; but it seemed a sight longer than that. A What you know 'bout witches?" and that nigger was corked up and had to take a back seat. A Sometimes the widow would take me one side and talk about Providence in a way to make a body's mouth water; but maybe next day Miss Watson would take hold and knock it all down again.
A He never could go after even a turnip-cart but he must have the swords and guns all scoured up for it, though they was only lath and broomsticks, and you might scour at them till you rotted, and then they warn't worth a mouthful of ashes more than what they was before. If you are still unsure and you own an ammeter, test the current draw of the compressor at the compressor leads.
A I didn't need anybody to tell me that that was an awful bad sign and would fetch me some bad luck, so I was scared and most shook the clothes off of me.
A Then I slipped down to the ground and crawled in among the trees, and, sure enough, there was Tom Sawyer waiting for me.
A Jim always kept that five-center piece round his neck with a string, and said it was a charm the devil give to him with his own hands, and told him he could cure anybody with it and fetch witches whenever he wanted to just by saying something to it; but he never told what it was he said to it. A I judged I could see that there was two Providences, and a poor chap would stand considerable show with the widow's Providence, but if Miss Watson's got him there warn't no help for him any more. A I didn't believe we could lick such a crowd of Spaniards and A-rabs, but I wanted to see the camels and elephants, so I was on hand next day, Saturday, in the ambuscade; and when we got the word we rushed out of the woods and down the hill. I got up and turned around in my tracks three times and crossed my breast every time; and then I tied up a little lock of my hair with a thread to keep witches away.
A I reckoned I couldn't stand it more'n a minute longer, but I set my teeth hard and got ready to try. A Niggers would come from all around there and give Jim anything they had, just for a sight of that five-center piece; but they wouldn't touch it, because the devil had had his hands on it. A I thought it all out, and reckoned I would belong to the widow's if he wanted me, though I couldn't make out how he was a-going to be any better off then than what he was before, seeing I was so ignorant, and so kind of low-down and ornery. A I told him I had an old slick counterfeit quarter that warn't no good because the brass showed through the silver a little, and it wouldn't pass nohow, even if the brass didn't show, because it was so slick it felt greasy, and so that would tell on it every time.
A Just then Jim begun to breathe heavy; next he begun to snorea€”and then I was pretty soon comfortable again.


A Jim was most ruined for a servant, because he got stuck up on account of having seen the devil and been rode by witches. A (I reckoned I wouldn't say nothing about the dollar I got from the judge.) I said it was pretty bad money, but maybe the hair-ball would take it, because maybe it wouldn't know the difference. A You do that when you've lost a horseshoe that you've found, instead of nailing it up over the door, but I hadn't ever heard anybody say it was any way to keep off bad luck when you'd killed a spider.
A Jim smelt it and bit it and rubbed it, and said he would manage so the hair-ball would think it was good. A He said he would split open a raw Irish potato and stick the quarter in between and keep it there all night, and next morning you couldn't see no brass, and it wouldn't feel greasy no more, and so anybody in town would take it in a minute, let alone a hair-ball.
If the knob has an "off" setting which stops the compressor from running, it is thecold control.In the absence of an "off" setting, the easiest way to tell them apart is to pull the plastic knob off the control. The idea is to keep the compartment at a different temperature from the rest of the food compartment; a more optimum temperature for the particular food that you're keeping in these compartments. This is known as "sweating." So-called "Energy Saver" switches control small, low-wattage "mullion" heaters in the side and door panels that prevent the outside of the refrigerator from getting cool enough for sweating to occur. Air flows over it by convection; the warm air rises and is replaced by cooler air from below.
Feel for a steady flow of warm air from the drain pan side; it should be obvious (see Figure 11).
It has the veryimportantjob of directing airflow beneath the fridge, assuring that the condenser fan is drawing air over the condenser and not just sucking air in through the back of the fridge. They are sealed units and cannot be rebuilt.Replacing the condenser fan motor can be dirty and difficult. My hearing tests were normal and the ENT doesn't know what it is, guessing maybe nerve damage.
When installing a new motor with bracket mounts, it may be easier to install the brackets loosely on the motor until you can locate the mounting screws in their holes. Thus, when trouble-shooting the evaporator fan, you must depress the door switch(es).Open your freezer door, depress all door switches and listen for the evaporator fan. Look first for a separate access panel or a tower within the freezer that houses the fan (Figure 14). Check for anything that may be blocking the fan, including ice from a backed-up defrost drain or a frost problem. If nothing is blocking the fan and it still does not run, check for voltage across the fan motor leads (with the door switch depressed, of course.)If you have voltage across the fan motor leads, the fan motor is bad.
I am going to try going into an elevator and some of these things to gently try to push things along and see if this helps-thank you for the tip. Itcancause ice to build up in the internal ductwork.If you hear a "whistling" or "warbling" noise emanating from the fan motor itself or from the inside of the food or freezer compartment, it is probably coming from the evaporator fan motor. They don't cost much.REPLACING THE EVAPORATOR FAN MOTORIn replacing the fan motor, you must make sure that the rotation of the new fan motor is the same as the old one.
The easiest way to do this is to look for the shading poles on the old fan motor (Figure 16).If they are on opposite corners from the ones on the new fan motor core, it is a simple enough task to reverse the new rotor in its core. Do not remove the icemaker (if installed.)Look at and feel the panel covering the bottom or back of the freezer compartment. You will see a removable panel covering the entire back or bottom of your freezer compartment. Make sure the power is off the refrigerator before disassembling any lighting circuit.On some bottom-evap models, you may have to remove some of the plastic moulding around the door frame to access some of the evaporator panel screws. This can usually be accomplished by placing a pan of very hot water in various places on the panel, or by blowing warm air on it with a blow-dryer. Therefore, when you are diagnosing a defrost problem, it's a good idea to try to avoid melting the ice encasing the terminating thermostat until you've made your diagnosis. If the thermostat opens before you've had a chance to see if the heater works, you'll have to by-pass it.
There are many styles, but most are variations of the three types pictured in Figure 20.Aback-evaporatormodel is one with the evaporator mounted vertically against theinside back wallof the freezer compartment.
These may be bottom freezer models, side-by-sides (Figure 17) or top freezer models (Figure 18.)Abottom-evaporatormodel is one with the evaporator mounted horizontally (flat) beneath a panel on thebottomof the freezer compartment (Figure 19).
Does it have a fluffy (snowy) white consistency, or is it solid and clear-ish or slightly milky white-ish?Check the frostpattern. Or is it not frosted at all?On back-evap models, examine the drain pan directly beneath the evaporator.
Is it clear, or is it filled with solid ice?Each of these symptoms indicates a different problem. If you have lots of white, snowy ice, keep reading.4-5 DEFROST SYSTEMIf the frost is snowy and white in appearance, you have a defrost problem.
The three main components of the defrost system are the defrost timer, the defrost heater and the terminating thermostat.4-5(a) DEFROST TIMERS AND ADAPTIVE DEFROST CONTROLIn most older refrigerators and some newer ones, a motor-driven timer (Figure 21) is used to stop the compressor and initiate a defrost cycle. If you have a Whirlpool or Kenmore refrigerator with a flex-tray icemaker, the defrost timer is integrated into the icemaker. This is true whether you are using the icemaker to make ice or not; it is running constantly to time your defrost cycles. If you have a defrost problem and you have one of these machines, follow the instructions in section 4-6.Nowadays, refrigerators are being made as efficient as possible, due in no small part to government energy efficiency requirements. Defrost heaters use a lot of energy, so designers are mimimizing the total amount of time that the heater is energized.
Such factors include ambient humidity and temperature, the water content and temperature of the food you put into the fridge, icemaking within the freezer, and how often the door is opened and closed.For example, if you go away on vacation for a week, the refrigerator door will obviously not be opened for a long time. Less humid air will enter the fridge than if someone was at home, and opening and closing the door. Frost buildup will be much slower than usual, so the refrigerator will not need to be defrosted as often as normal. It also will not need to be chilled as often, so compressor run times will be shorter and less frequent.Designers are using microprocessors (on solid state circuit boards) to adapt defrost intervals and durations to compensate for differences and changes in operating conditions. Such techniques are calledAdaptive Defrost Control, commonly abbreviated as ADC.To make decisions about the correct defrost duration and interval, the control board must have input about the conditions that the fridge is operating under.
Each manufacturer uses a different logic scheme and different inputs, such as door open time, compressor run time, duration of the previous defrost cycle, and duration and intervals of door openings.Door open info is provided to the logic board by the door switch - the same one that controls the refrigerator's internal lights.
For example, the ADC is programmed with a maximum amount of time that the heater can stay on; say, for 16 minutes. Often they are mounted under a cover plate or in a bracket that hides all but the advancement pinion.
The easiest way to recognize them is that the harness connection is always labelled with the compressor, defrost heater, L1 and L2. The easiest way to see the heater is to look for the heavy, rubber-coated wires leading to it; one on each end.
The element has no protective tubing and generally wraps around beneath the evaporator in a large "U" shape.You must exercise caution when handling these heaters to prevent burning yourself.
If that happens, you want to turn the heater off soon after the ice melts, to prevent the evaporator compartment from heating up too much. If theterminating thermostatsenses too high a temperature in the compartment, it opens, and cuts power to the heater. The thermostat will then stay open until the compartment again reaches a very low temperature. In other words, it waits to reset itself until the cooling cycle starts again.If the evaporator is more heavily frosted, the ice may not all melt within the time allotted by the timer.
The heater will stay on until thetimerstops the defrost cycle, and restarts the cooling cycle.If you initiate defrost (turn the timer on) and the heaterdoes notheat up, then usually the heater or terminating thermostat is bad. If you initiate defrost and the heaterdoesturn on, then usually the timer or ADC board is bad, and you must replace it.To diagnose which component is bad, you must initiate the defrost mode, or test continuity through the defrost heater and terminating thermostat. Within ten minutes (usually much less) you should be able to see a red glow from the defrost heater(s), which is (are) mounted beneath the evaporator.If you have an aluminum-tube heater as described in section 4-5(b), it will not glow red, but youwillsee ice melting away from its coils. Timers can get old, worn and coked up with dust, and may develop hard spots in the bearings.
If youdo nothear or see indications that the defrost heater is working, then it is necessary to investigate a little further. If you cannot tell for sure, get the information for your model fridge from your parts man. DIAGNOSIS: DEFROST HEATER AND TERMINATING THERMOSTATIf you do not hear or see indications that the defrost heater is working, you could be looking at one of several different problems. The heatermaybe so icebound that it would takehoursfor the heater to melt enough ice for you to see the heater begin to work.
If they are not connected to a terminal block, you will need to cut the leads to test for continuity. Make sure you're not testing continuity across the terminating thermostat too; it may be wide open above 40 or 50 degrees. With glass-tube heaters, be careful that the glass is not cracked or broken and that you do not cut yourself.
It's cheap.If you have an ammeter, try to determine if the heater is drawing any power before you melt any ice. In trying to find the heater leads, be careful that you do not melt so much ice that the terminating thermostat opens. If you suspect that the terminating thermostat might be open, temporarily bypass the terminating thermostat with an alligator jumper as described below.If you cannot find the heater leads, an alternativeis to check the current in one lead of the main power cord.
Double-check this diagnosis by jumping across (shorting) the terminating thermostat with your alligator jumpers. If the two thermostat leads are not on a terminal block, you will have to cut the leads to jump the thermostat. Remember that it's a wet environment.LIFTING THE EVAPORATORIf you have a bottom-evap model fridge, replacing the heater will involve the delicate task of lifting the evaporator up to get to the heater.
If you break or puncture one of those tubes, you're looking at a potentially expensive sealed system repair.Thaw out the evaporator as thoroughly as is humanly possible. Remove the evaporator mounting screws (if there are any) and gently lift up the end of the evaporator opposite the tubes. Prop up the evaporator with a blunt instrument (I use my electrical pliers or a flashlight) and change the heater. Do what you went in there to do, but as much as possible, avoid moving the evaporator around too much.When you finish, gently lower the evaporator back into place.
The hard tray is finished in a dark gray or black color and has rotating fingers that eject the cubes from the unit; the flex-tray has a white plastic, flexible tray that inverts and twists to eject, much the same as a manual ice cube tray would work. The hard-tray and separate defrost timer is by far the more common arrangement.This defrost system has the same components described in the defrost system in section 4-5, except that the defrost timer is integrated into the icemaker. However, the actual switch that controls the heater is accessible.Remove the icemaker and the evaporator panel as described in section 4-4.
Take the plastic cover off the face of the icemaker and remove the three screws holding the metal faceplate to the icemaker head. Plug the icemaker back into its electrical socket and observe the drive motor in the upper lefthand corner of the icemaker head.
The defrost switch is the small, rectangular switch in the upper righthand corner of the icemaker head. Using electrical tape, tape it out of the way so it does not touch any other metal object in the icemaker head. Using your resistance meter, you should see continuity (and no resistance) between the empty terminal (where the BLACK lead was) and the PINK terminal.You should see NO continuity between the empty (BLACK) and ORANGE terminal. When the switch toggle is depressed, continuity will be just the opposite: BLACK-ORANGE-CONTINUITY, BLACK-PINK-NO CONTINUITY.
If the switch is okay, the problem is probably your defrost heater or terminating thermostat.
Alignment of the gears is critical; follow the instructions that come with the gear sets carefully. If you replace the motor, you will have to re-align the defrost timing gear mechanism.RE-ASSEMBLYIf you have not removed the defrost timing gear housing from the back of the icemaker head or the motor from the front of the head, you will not need to re-align thedefrost timinggear mechanism. However, youwillneed to realign thedrivegear mechanism.Align the hole in the small drive gear with the alignment hole in the icemaker head and install the gear. If they do not line up perfectly, momentarily plug the icemaker in or apply 110 volt power to the two center leads of the plug This will turn the drive motor slightly. Lift the spring-loaded shut-off arm (ice level sensor) as you install the cam and let it rest in the cam hollow. Carefully install the metal cover plate, making sure the end of the wire shut-off arm (ice level sensor) is in its pivot hole in the metal cover plate. Make sure the icemaker is turned on (ice level sensor arm is down) or it won't make ice.4-7 HOT GAS DEFROST PROBLEMSIf you have a refrigerator with a hot gas defrost system, the defrost mechanism is somewhat different from those described in previous sections of this book.
If you suspect that you might have a hot-gas defroster but you are not sure, ask your appliance parts dealer. Most of these refrigerators were built before 1970, but not all.The main difference in a hot gas system is that there is no electrical heater or separate terminating thermostat.
The defrost cycle is controlled by a defrost timer similar to the one you'll find in electric defrost systems, but the timer controls asolenoid valveinstead of aheater. These units have a temperature sensing bulb, similar to that found on the cold control (see section 4-9 and Figures 21 and 33) as a part of the timer.
Its function is to sense the temperature of the evaporator so the defrost mechanism knows when to shut off.Troubleshooting a defrost problem in this system involves two steps.
Wait and watch your evaporator for 10-15 minutes.If the frost starts to melt, then your defrost timer has gone bad. Thoroughly melt the rest of the frost from your evaporator and replace the defrost timer.If the frost doesnotstart to melt, then your defrost solenoid is probably bad. Fortunately, the defrost solenoid is usually designed so the electrical coil can be replaced without cutting into the sealed system. Trace the Freon tubing until you find electrical wires joining the tubing at a certain point. UNEVEN FROST PATTERNS, OR NO FROST AT ALLThe evaporator should be bitterly cold to the touch. If the evaporator is either slightly cool or not cold at all, and your compressor is runningconstantly(not short-cycling; see section 4-9) you have a more serious problem. The same diagnosis applies if just the first coil or two in the evaporator is (are) frosted and the rest are relatively free of ice or perhaps even lukewarm.What's happening is that the Freon is not getting compressed enough in the compressor. This could be due to two causes: either the amount of Freon in the system is low, or the compressor is worn out.
Itmayonly require recharging the Freon system, which, depending on the refrigerant used, may cost you a little, or a LOT.
I have only seen one exception to this diagnosis, and this is described in section 7-2.Don't let the age of the refrigerator affect your diagnosis. Not too long ago, one of the largest appliance companies put out a series of refrigerators with compressors that were either poorly designed or poorly constructed; I never did find out which. These were their giant, 20 to 25 cubic-foot flagship models, with techno-marvelous gadgets like digital self-diagnosis and ice and water in the door, and they were built with compressors that wore out within 2 years.Fortunately, the biggest and best companies warrant their refrigerators for five years or more, so these refrigerators were still covered under warranty. COLD CONTROLIf your refrigerator is cold but not as cold as usual, and you cannot trace it to any of the other problems in this chapter, your cold control may be defective. To test its cut-in and cut-out temperatures, you can try putting the capillary bulb in ice water and measuring the temperature with a thermometer, but it's a wet, messy, job and it's difficult to control the temperatures. The capillary tube is the liquid-filled temperature-sensing element of the cold control, and operates in the same manner as a thermometerbulb; in fact, the end of the capillary tube may have a bulb. The tube and bulbmaybe coiled right next to the cold control, or they may be led away to another part of the compartment.If you are justtesting(electrically) the cold control, you can jumper directly from one wire lead to the other.
By doing this, you are closing the switch manually, and assuming the machine is not in the defrost mode, the compressor should start.If you arereplacingthe cold control, it will be necessary to trace where the capillary tube goes, and remove the whole tubewiththe cold control.
