The power company came out & confirmed my reading & within an hour had a crew adjusting the power coming into our street. We haven't had any problems since the repair & they sent us a check for $1,300.
Yeah, checked it all out. 122 VAC steady as a rock over 12 days. The problem really is I buy the latest and 'greatest'... which makes me a beta tester. Plus appliances hate me. But there is more to the story - from the time I could crawl, I was taking apart anything that used power. Don't even ask me about the time I thought a plug fuse would make a great light bulb.

Anyway, my parents passed away when I was at a very young age... they knew my love for electronics.... and without getting too weird, I consider this all their way of letting me know they are still watching over me. I could tell you other stories related to electricity/electronics over my life that would make your head spin... but they all make me look psycho, so I keep em to myself.

keep your chin up I hear theres a Cat 5 headed your way.

hahaha, I'll keep an eye out. With the new engine, my chin is in the clouds. In comparrison, A broken fridge is less important than getting mud on the carpet.

But a good cat 5 would be nice.

Well, I detailed it, in the hope it would appease it.

But now that you mention it, it'* not cleaning as well as it used to.

I see a teardown soon.

HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHHAAHOHHO HOHOHOHOHAHHAHAOHAHOHOAOHAHAOAAOHAHA

(That'* manical laughter)

Washing machine motor burnt up.

That'* it for this troublemaker. Out to the farm to meet some gas, AK47, a few double barrels, and maybe some small explosives.

I'llprobably buy a new set, so if anyone wants a dryer, and can pick it up, let me know. It works fine, although I had to spend $150 or so to get it that way.

I fixed it!

All it took was a 2x4, and about 10 minutes.
