    Central heating misbehaving

    Hi, My family and I have just moved into a rented house. I'm having problems with the central heating, and the property maintenance people cant get out to check it themselves until next week. There's a CH boiler in the garage, a Siemens RWB29 programmer and a Siemens RAA20 room thermostat...

    Hi, I have a string of 50 fairy lights that are fitted with a UK domestic plug. I'd like to know if it's reasonably possible to power these by battery. My partner needs some LEDs for some table centres she's making for a wedding. Its likely that the LEDs will be on for up to 12 hours...

    Shoddy insulation job?

    Hi, My mum was visited by a rep from an insulation company. Since she's about to sell the house, she went ahead with their offer to better-insulate the home. About 15 years ago, she had the loft converted into a bedroom. The room was 'squared-off', which created handy storage 'rooms' on...

    Indesit WD 125

    Hi, My washing machine has stopped working. When I set it to a wash cycle, everything appears normal, but the cycle never begins. The door lock light is on, but the cycle doesn't start. The same thing happens with a drying cycle (the drying light goes on too). As vague as this description...

    Broken Seal

    I couldnt find the other wire. There doesnt seem to be any way of attaching the seal to the tub nor does there appear to be a groove or lip for another wire loop to attach to. I can provide a photo if you like? Thanks all the same, Fish

    Broken Seal

    Hi, Thanks to you both for your help. After inspecting the seal, i couldn't see any damage so decided to refit it. I managed to attach it to the front panel, hooking it over the lip and securing with the wire loop. However, i couldnt see any way of affaching it to the drum or the plastic...

    Broken Seal

    The existing door seal seems in fine condition - although it was late and i was still half asleep. Or - does the fact that it came right off mean that it is damaged completely? Cheers, Fish

    Broken Seal

    Hi, I have an Indesit 1030 washing machine. Last night I put a load on and went to bed only to be woken an hour later to the sound of water running in my kitchen. When I went through, there was water pouring out of the bottom of the machine so I switched it off immediately. When I opened...

    Water comes in then straight back out

    Hi, I have just been given an Indesit 1030 washing machine as my old machine is (very) broken. I plumbed it in and tried a standard 40 wash. I could hear the water coming in, but it goes straight back out the waste pipe again. I've checked all the hoses and everything is fine. Anyone got...

    Bizarre Indesit Problem

    Hi, I have an Indesit washing machine; probably about 4 years old. When I load it with clothes it washes and spins fine. However, when the programme gets to the final fast-spin, it makes a loud knocking noise, almost like a rattle. It only does this when there are clothes in it. When I...
