    Next time I buy appliances, anything American will definitely be off my list. I've got an LG washer & dryer, which we had problems with both in the first year, but in the 6 or 8 years since then, no...

    Short cycling is hard on all motors, but the bigger ones don't dissipate the heat as quickly. In a single phase motor it's the start windings & capacitor that suffer most. the capacitor is not there...

    I leave it running if I'm going to be using it within a few minutes in order to keep the hourly cycles down. I also keep an eye on the particle counter & will leave it running to get the counts down....

    If I lived in a hotter place, I'd be all over one of those. We do have warm weather, but my shop stays quite cool. When I came home from work the other day it was 32*C outside & the shop was at a...
