Regardless of unit the purifier plates may need replacement. How are the plates cleaned? Could it be that there is a residue from the cleaning agent present after cleaning? With new plates there is a little oil on the plates to prevent oxidation when in storage or transit. A little rubbing alcohol would do the trick.
Make sure the plates are dry before putting them back into the unit.

If the plates are seated right and clean you should see a faint purple glow on the plates when the unit is on purify.

Let me know if that's the case.

SOURCE: About 5 days ago I noticed a strong chemical smell

No. The coolant cannot leak as a liquid and soak into the floor. Also, the smell of the coolant (refrigerant) does not have the acetone/ketone/laquer thinner smell that you are describing, and if someway the smell originated from the frig, the smell would without a doubt be inside the frig as well. You need to look frosome container stored in a cabinet or stored on conrete floor that has rusted or opened some way and the thinner/cleaner/solvent has leaked from such a containerwithout notice. Goodluck, Macgivor

Have you checked the breaker to the unit? if not make sure you are getting power from the breaker to the dishwasher, if you are then check the wiring where it goes into the dishwasher to make sure you have 110 volts to the unit. if this does not fix it, i think it will leave me a msg and i will tell you more things to check, im not sure but there also may be a reset button on this unit

How to get rid of lice on small birds


No idea of your country but a 20Second google search revealed this;
To remove lice, it is recommended to use a mild pet insecticide, such as "Nuvan." After spraying the plumage, wait for 2 - 3 minutes and then gently ruffle the feathers over a white tray or plastic sheet to collect the lice which fall from the feathers.
I found that one great way to remove lice and mites from your birds is to sprinkle Sevin Garden dust under their wings and tail, and on the back. Check the birds the next day and if there are still lice present, repeat the process, as needed. I found Sevin dust [active ingredient: Carbaryl (1-napthyl N-methylcarbamate)] equally effective in getting rid of red mites.
Avian Insect Liquidator is another way to get rid of mites, lice and other insects in the birds' environment. This all-purpose insecticide from Vetafarm contains a water-based insecticide that is harmless to birds but effective against insects.
Prevention:
Sanitize and treat the birds' environment (cages, perches, aviaries, nesting areas, etc.). Secondly, allow your birds to bathe daily. Most birds enjoy doing so and if you provide them with a shallow clean dish, they will usually be happy to bathe without encouragement. Some birds like to be misted, or even sprayed. Sprinkling Sevin dust underneath nest bowls and around nests will eliminate all kinds of insects.

Howe to fix an air leak underneath the dashboard of a 2004 expedition


This is best solved with 2 people. One person inside the SUV and the other in front of the car with the hood up.
Get a spray can of something innocuous like Glade and look for holes in the firewall. Spray a light squirt of the Glade (or Lysol if you wish) and see if the person inside can smell it STRONGLY. If so, you have found where the air is getting in.
I must admit that I don't think this will find it unless there is a "grommet" that blocks the air flow when you brake and it is flopping around.
What i really think has happened is that the "flue/flap" that is controlled by a lever on your heater/air conditioning and is used to change the air flow from "Fresh air" or "Recirculate" has become unconnected from the control lever. You might be able to access this from in the engine compartment or you may have to squirm around beneath the dash. The "connector" looks like a coiled spring and it slips over rod/pin-like piece that is attached to the "flue/flap." Getting this connector over the rod/pin should be easy. Once that is done and the heater/air conditioner is set to recirculate, your air leak should be gone.

How to get rid of bed bug


Three things will kill them naturally, heat (above 120 degree F), food grade diatomacious earth and permethrin spray.

Heat that high is hard to do alone, but you can contract (and I recommend you do based on your severity) a company to seal your outside doors and windows, and pump heat into your home for a few hours. This will kill all bedbugs in all stages of their life cycle. It takes a few hours at this heat to do so.

Diatomaceous earth is a powder that acts like concertina wire to pretty much all bugs. So the bugs have to physically come in contact with it. It is safe for mammals; you and your pet can eat the food grade level. You should dust the areas where there is the most bugs. I would dust around and in the beds, furniture and wherever else you suspect bugs. This will only kill the bugs that are moving. Eggs are safe. Plus, you cannot get the dust everywhere where the bugs can hide.

Permethrin is an oil extract from flowers. It is good against most arthopods and safe for mammals. The oil is diluted with water (I use hot or warm water) and applied by spraying. Depending on your spray applicator, you can spray into many places; however, it is only good for a about 24hrs. Direct contact is a must. It will kill bugs in all stages of life, but again, it must come in direct contact with them.

So to summarize, diatomaceous earth (DE) in conjuction with permethrin can wipe out a small, isolated infestation. If the bugs have moved to multiple places, heat is the best option as a whole-house solution as DE and Permethrin will not get into all the nooks and crannies like inside the walls and electrical outlets. These bugs can and do hide anywhere!

Getting rid of lizards on my patio


Best Ways to Get Rid of Lizards
1. Egg Shells: Lizards will leave the place because the odour of eggs will make lizards assume that there is another organism present in the premises. Keep some eggshells around the corners of your house, doors, and windows.
2. Coffee Powder
This is a very effective method to get rid of lizards. Combine tobacco and coffee powder and make balls. Keep the prepared balls on every corner of the house and the places where lizards hide the most. After eating these balls, they will either die or move away from your house
.3. Garlic
Lizards cannot stand the smell of garlic. This remedy may sound weird to you, but hanging some garlic cloves around your house will keep the lizards away

  • Alternatively, you can place some garlic cloves in the corners and the entrances of the house or spray garlic juice in the lizard-prone areas.
4. Pepper Spray
Pepper spray irritates lizards. This remedy will make them run away. Prepare a solution by mixing crushed black pepper and water. Spray this solution all around the house, in kitchen racks, under the stove, fridge and tube light corners.
5. Onion
Onion contains sulphur compounds which are responsible for bad odour. Lizards can't tolerate the pungent smell of onion. Hang some onions around all the doors, windows and all the other possible entrances. Or else, keep some onions in the areas encroached by the lizards. This creepy reptile will leave the place soon.

How would I know if my cage is safe?


For a bird cage to be safe the birds inside should be able to spread their wings and stretch without hitting the cage's sides or any other object. Moreover, In some countries, it is illegal to house a pet bird in a cage that does not permit it to spread its wings.

It is easy do to as long as you follow these guidelines:-Use fresh, clear water. Do not use Shampoos or conditioners-Wash your bird around the warmest time of day-Wash your bird in lukewarm water - not to cold and not toowarm-Don't saturate the bird's feathers

Smell in the air


If the smell is not electrical as JEShandyman was asking, but rather from something trapped in the lint filter you could try putting the unit under a box and put it on sanitize. Let it run for 30-60 minutes and see if that cleared up the problem. Washing and drying the filter first is a good idea.

You should never get a head ache from the smell the machine produces. The fresh air the machine produces reacts with the odors and contaminants in the environment and that can potentially create other smells. If that happens you should scale the machine back to a lower setting and take it very slowly and ramp it up day by day. This is something you should have been told by the person who sold you the machine to begin with.

I hope this helps.
