I just started using my AC. It works perfectly up until the compressor shuts off. Every single time, about a second after the compressor stops, it blows the fuse. Last night it was running without this issue, and nothing on the circuit has changed. Pic related, that's the model I have.

I have a fey questions I was hoping you guys could answer. I'm taking care of my 73 year-old dad with dementia. He opens and closes the fridge and freezer 30+ times a day and just stares for about 10 seconds and then walks away to only repeat it every half hour...ALL DAY! >Would adding frozen water bottles, or gallon jugs into the freezer help the freezer and fridge to not go through so much strain and wear and tear? Would it help or hinder the freezer? > Does keeping ice frozen in a freezer require more energy than if the freezer had no ice in it? Or is it easier on the refrigeration system if the fridge/freezer were empty? >In other words, if you tested Kilowatt hours on X freezer that's empty and Y freezer that's full of already frozen items, which would use more power to run at identical settings for 24 hours?

Hey /diy/ I could really use some help here. What you see in the picture is a light cover or lampshade(not english here.) I need to make a coffee table out of it, so i am going to stick together planks and cut that out in a circle exactly the size of the diameter-2xSize of the aluminum But what i need help with is, how do i make something for that thing so it stands on legs or something, so it doesnt roll over, and gets a little extra height. I was thinking about making a wooden tripod or quadpod(?) but i have no idea how to do that. If i know what to make, i can make it but i just dont know the design for this.. Any input would be fantastic!

Hey guys, what is a good way to make your front door breaching-proof? Against criminals of course. I know how to protect it against a battering ram many burglers these days use by having a large (expandable) pole of hardend steel that fits between the door and the wall behind it, which protects it against brute force, but how about criminals who would want to use a chainsaw to enter your cozy home? I was thinking about making an inner wall at the inside of the door filled with small metal balls, so when thiefs try to saw open your door this shit would shoot thousands of small metal balls around, which might scare them off. However, i'm not quite sure if this is effective. So i've been thinking, maybe there is a way to have something at the inside of the door like something tougher than a chainsaw that when cut into would jam the saw or even break the chain. Maybe metal strings of titanium? What would be strong enough? Also what is a good way to make a very big electro magnet that you can trigger using a panic button that would fry your computer and harddrives in an instant in case these burglers are out for your own personal financial digital files? Thanks for brainstorming with me /diy/ it's for a school subject btw.

So i'm staying at a friend's place for a month and certain parts of the walls are dirty as fuck. This is where his younger brother kept an unwashed towel and eventually it developed these dark stains. How do I remove these? (more pics incoming)

I have a bunch of rock beds in front of my house that are always growing weeds. I don't want anything to grow in them, can I just sow salt into the soil to stop them growing? Will that work?

Can you DIY A/C self contained unit?

8 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
All right, I will start my own thread then. Can you successfully and correctly self-install one of these A/C units? would you recommend as a replacement a Goodman GPH1436H41 3 Ton, 14 SEER Self-Contained Packaged Heat Pump, Dedicated Horizontal Or Goodman GPH1536M41 3 Ton, 15 SEER Self-Contained Packaged Heat Pump, R-410A Refrigerant ?? both are R410 and come pre-charged as I understand it. This is for a south-texas doublewide install. I am being quoted upwards of $5k for an A/C install, I think the quotes are insane. Not trying to be a cheapstake here but for $5k I can put two window units ON EACH ROOM and still have money left over. House is a 28*54 used doublewide moved to a rural area. I have done all the plumbing myself (water and septic), as well as electric. Again, I realize its a LITERAL pain in the ass crawling all day below the house, but it is most definitely not a $5k kind of pain. Anybody has any ideas of what will I need to install one of these self-contained units myself?

Someone in my area is selling an old Lincoln electric welder for cheap. We're talking *old* here. I was wondering if anyone could identify from their shitty pic how old and what its capable of. Its super cheap so it might be worth it just to learn on.

Winterized Cat Doors

18 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I'd like to put a cat door in to a cat cage on my deck. I'd like the cats to have full in/out access when I'm around and I'll close the door when I'm out. That's not a problem in the summer, but how do I winterize it, so completely seal it off, in the winter? I Googled, but nothing came up about it. Thank you in advance.

Evening /Diy/ I have a problem with my sisters car. It has a major battery drain and im gonna chase it down tomorrow. However. Im not experienced in working on cars or electricity. So im wondering if any of you can suggest where i start? Have a voltmeter, I understand car basics/construction(They are not a mystery to me. Just never got around to work on them myself). I can work a wrench. The car is a 95 toyota Corolla sedan. 1.3xli but i doubt that matters.

Hey there diy, So I made a gun rack whiskey rack thing... This is my first time ever using a hammer (outside of hanging things up) or a saw. I moved in to a new place and lots of stuff was left over - including a couple pallets, a saw, a jigsaw, some stain and pre stain. I've never used the tools, never stained before. And there was no sand paper. I decided to say fuck it and try things out and figure it out as I go. No instructions just see what I can do. This is the end result of the first piece. I'm putting on a door that opens parallel with the floor that will be able to hold a shot glass and such. I think this will be pretty neat. What do you think for a first timer, /Diyarbakir/?

DIY Camping/Backpacking/Hiking/Outdoors

4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Can we get a DIY outdoors thread? What are some things you can make or modify that would help you for camping or hiking trips? The most famous of course are the penny can stoves, there are tons of different designs. They use alcohol as the fuel source. They cost next to nothing and can boil 2 cups of water in about 5-10 minutes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Okm_irIXFw There is also a wood gas camp stove, made with a few metal cans. Uses wood/small branches as the fuel source. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luO3_08iqZI Feel free to share any more ideas.

USB port protection embedded development

5 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Hi, im working on some developmentboards (such as xplained boards from atmel, or raspberry, arduino, ...) Now I'd like to have a proper protection for my USB Port of my notebook. Just an external powered USB hub is not reliable, as i suggest. in first place, i'd like to protect my usb port against overcurrent and overvoltage(!!), since some circuits are also externally powered. Also reserve voltage should be respected. in second place, maybe also the same protection for D+ and D-. Just in case.

What kind of PICO PSU do I need for an old Pentium III motherboard? Right now it has a 150 watt PSU which is probably more than enough. It has an old 733mhz Pentium III. Here is what I know about the mobo: ATX power supply connector +12V power source for DC fan 3.3V unbuffered PC100 SDRAM I've included a pic of the psu I'm using now I don't fucking know what I need.

DIY dumbbell discs

12 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Hey /diy/. My weekend protect will be to make some (4 to be exact) weight discs for dumbbells out of concrete. There are several tutorials online, but they're for larger, barbell discs and I want to practice by making smaller ones for dumbbells first. Anyway, I'm planning to use an empty Quaker oats box and a PVC pipe as a mold, also I'll be using 3 discs of some material (cardboard?) to separate the mold into 4 sections so hopefully the whole thing won't end up all fused together and I can get 4 separated concrete discs without having to cut the cement with a grinder. So, my questions are: How reasonable is this? How can I make the concrete as hard/dense as possible? Will cardboard be enough to separate the sections? Once finished, do you think I should cover them with something? I was thinking of just spray painting them if anything.
