Your Home Appliances

Hey Neighbors!

We have recently replaced several of the larger appliances in the home.  We went from a gas to electric stove, have a new LARGE washer and dryer downstairs, and not too long ago replaced the dishwasher.  I am now looking at the refrigerator and microwave.  Maybe soon.  As some of you know we have slowly been doing renovations, improving and replacing where and when we can.  It is coming along great, but occasionally I get a little impatient.

As far as the microwave goes, I know it is not a major purchase, but with 8 of us in the family, it gets a lot of use.  Now, I generally will not cook in the microwave, but to warm up food or to make a quick bag of popcorn, we really use it more than I thought.  Lately it has been on a cycle where it works for a few days and then suddenly stops.  We have to unplug it and let it sit for about 10 minutes or so before we plug it back in.  Sometimes we have to do this several times in a row before it will start working.

We do have a friend who HATES microwaves and he was constantly warning us about microwave use and about how harmful it is.  Recently I have been made aware of microwave leak detectors.  Have any of you ever owned or used one?  I would be interested in hearing your opinion.  I mean, maybe I should be more concerned.  I am not sure if I would need it with a new microwave, but it might be a good idea to check the one we have.

I guess I am going to have to do some more research on this one!  Thanks ahead of time to any of my neighbors willing to share their thoughts!  See you soon, At the Fence!

This Microwave Oven Leakage Detector allows you to feel confident that your oven is safe to use. The price was reasonable for what I expected it to do. It gives you the "peace of mind" to not worry about standing next to your microwave oven while it is working and that is certainly worth the price of the unit.
Its also pretty good device for checking leakage in refrigeration manufacturers process

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
