I'm replacing the grill thermocouple in this 2004 DVG9621 cooker.
Is access to that from above, that is by removing the hob burner plate. Or maybe it accessed by removing the front control panel.
I am qualified.
Thank you John.
I went to my local PM to get some silicone and also bought a new piece of plastic with a wider diameter. This screwed in to replace the previous bit.
All is now snug and drip free. I also applied a coating of silicone.
(I wish I knew the name of the part so I could...
Having just re-connected the outlet tube from my dishwasher to the spur / "fir tree connector" at the kitchen basin waste (just above the "S" bend - I have a small leak. It drips abut half a cupful every 30 minutes if the dishwasher is working.
Hopefully the picture is visible below.
Thank you - I will give him a miss.
I did feel a bit uncomfortable because the way Rosemary tiles were "very expensive" then suddenly - after I told him the internet price - "well they cost nothing because I have them spare".
Then there was the comment that the (previously expensive) roof...
A builder-roofer came round delivering leaflets and he noticed I have a few slipped, loose or de-laminated roof tiles (expensive Marley Rosemary he said) . So I asked him for a price. I have a 4 bed semi with a few bits added on. I also mentioned I had a gutter overflow.
I need to partially repoint the mortar in my wall, so I need to remove about 20 metres (x 5mm?) in length.
Just for this job, I had thought of buying a cheap "Energer" 4.5 inch £19.99 angle grinder from Screwfix plus a 115mm mortar rake disc for it.
Is it likely that this small tool will...
Thank you, good idea.
My research now indicates there are many different types of "drawer front clip" so I will not be able to get a direct replacement.
So I plan to buy a new drawer and new all-metal fixings (from Screwfix) then secure my old drawer front to the new fixings. I do not...
Thank you everyone, most helpful.
I was really trying to get an idea if the price was fair and, if it was not, see if there was any point in trying to get some money back. The lady is old, forgetful, frail and nervous so we are on weak ground.
My limited investigations and useful tips...
An old lady friend recently had 2 residential consumer units fitted: one for the electric overnight storage heaters in her very small house and the other for the ring mains. She was charged £800 cash for supply and fitting. No other work was done.
The receipt shows the tradesman as "Local...
Situated in our centrally heated (22c) kitchen, I can hear the FF quietly whirring - on and off - for what seems maybe a third of the day in total.
I assume this noise is usually the circulating fan that makes the unit frost free. The fan is not constant as it stops for periods.
Thanks guys for your comments. I will remove the PTFE then re-tighten the 50mm nuts to give the new internal rubber washers the best chance of a watertight seal. Without PTFE I can now see that the nuts will turn more freely so that finger-tight + a smigeon extra with the small Stillsons will...
Thank you for your comments, much appreciated.
May I ask:
(i) the By Pass gate valve is in position but it is currently Closed. Is that correct for normal operation ?
(ii) I got conflicting advice on PTFE as to whether to use it or not. Did I do wrong ?
