    AEG u7101-5 main oven not getting hot enough with fan

    Hi When using one of the fan settings, the main (lower) oven gets hot but doesn't appear to get right up to the hot temperatures. The fan comes on and the oven heats up. Based on the indicator light, it gets up to 180, but no hotter than that, even if I select say 220. If I use a non-fan...

    noisy mains water pipe when toilet flushed

    Cheers for that. Seems pretty simple to sort out so hopefully can get sorted quickly.... sooey you've no idea how close that's been to happening. The guys upstairs are renting, but the landlord is worse than useless at getting things fixed. I've had no end of trouble with his plumbing and...

    Painting over metallic effects

    The other room was originally blue with the gold metallic paint effects on top (as said no idea make etc of them).

    Painting over metallic effects

    Hi Im redecorating my bathroom and the walls have a metallic gold paint effect on them. Is there something I can do to essentially seal this effect in so that it doesn't come through with time (it had also been done in another room and six months after redecorating that, it has come through)...
