Testing an Appliance Part for Continuity with a Multimeter

When it comes to appliance repair sometimes the damaged part is pretty obvious, for example a broken hinge or a snapped belt.  But when it comes to electrical components, it’s not a simple as looking for the broken or damaged part.  Sometimes it takes a bit more investigating to find the culprit.

The Cure To All Of Your Season’s Messes

The worst messes are always the most difficult to clean up.  Wouldn’t you agree?  Between gum in the carpet, crayons on the walls,  makeup on your clothes, or grease in your driveway, there always seems to be some sort of stain or mess that “will never be able to be cleaned”!

Fear no more, Goo Gone is here to the rescue!  This amazing little bottle of goop is the remedy to life’s toughest stains and messes.  My father keeps this on hand at all times for every situation.  The messes mentioned above? – No sweat!

To get the full magical power of Goo Gone, you have to apply it, and let it sit for a minute (for hard surfaces only).  Then wipe away the Goo Gone and the stain, clean it with soapy water, and ta-da!  Your mess is gone!  For softer surfaces such as upholstery or carpeting, you’ll need to blot the stain with a clean white cloth with a spot of Goo Gone on it.  Repeat this step until the stain is gone, clean the area with soap and water, and rinse the area again with water. Dry the area with a clean cloth to speed up the drying time, and once the majority of the moisture is gone, let it air dry.

This is a product that my family and I swear by, and we would recommend it to anyone who needs it.  Even if you don’t need it immediately, it is an amazing product to keep on hand in case of an accident. You never know when the kids will have a scribble-fest on the walls right before the in-laws come over!

And always remember, for all of your appliance parts needs, Every Appliance Part has your solution!
