Notice to repairmen DIY types - Online library of repair manuals
Bookmark this link and tell whomever it applies to.
New to me as I was searching for repair info about a propane fired space heater.

[link to www.manualslib.com (secure)]

2.35 manuals from nearly 45,000 brands

In the process I found a source (among many possible sources) of related parts.

"No User Servicable Parts" mean just THAT.

Written like the average control freak.

This world is put together by smart monkeys with two eyes, two hands, and a working brain.

If somebody else did it, so can you. You just need to look carefully what might happen and don't do anything stupid.

And, if you do something stupid and get hurt don't blame anyone other than yourself.

We have too many laws already aimed at protecting people from their own stupid errors.

Probably a sign of intelligence that you can recognize situations that are outside your realm of abilities.

For instance, would you attempt to disarm a land mine without significant training? Even demolition specialists err sometimes.

However, utility equipment repair is within the capabilities of people of average intelligence.

A natty looking uniform and a certificate are no guarantee of proficiency.

Incidentally “Servicable” is spelled serviceable – did you bribe anyone to get your certification?

Question for other viewers of this thread; “Have you ever been ripped off by a “certified” technician?”

Just like two weeks ago, my microwave quit working.

It had a sticker on the back that said that.

It also had those security torx screws in it, but I knew from past experience there is a fuse in there.

Bought the security bit set for $5.99, took the thing apart and low and behold, there was a ceramic fuse in there.

20A, 250V fuse was $2.00.

Put new one in there and viola, it works again.

$8.00 fix and most people would have just thrown it out and bought a new one, or called a repairman.

I fixed my 700$ ozone unit, finally, after many attempts. It has not worked for years. I found online about a little fuse on the board. Bypassed it with a copper wire. Saved me a lot of money and now my old house smells nice and clean instead of smelling like the old wood stove.

I would get the proper fuse and remove that by-pass asap, or that old house might be smelling like the wood stove while it is burning.

I concur with Gas Man; remove the jumper and insert the proper fuse.

Next step is - if the fuse blows again - search for the reason why it blows.
