The way to Install a Bath Light & Fan

Bath exhaust fans vent to the exterior of the building to get rid of excessive heat and moisture from your restroom through showers and hot tubs. A number of these exhaust fixtures incorporate a light kit which could be operated in the identical light switch or separate wall switches. Replacing an existing bathroom lighting with a light and fan kit to be controlled by separate switches would necessitate running new wiring to the switch box, however a port and light kit operating off the same single switch won’t require extra wiring or a change of the switch.

Switch off the circuit breaker that controls the power to the light switch in the restroom. Then loosen the mounting screws and remove the switch plate with a screwdriver. Position the suggestion of a non-contact electrical tester against the wires on the side of the switch. If the lighting on the tester comes on, turn off other breakers or the main breaker to the home until the lighting no further illuminates when testing the wires. Replace the switch cap.

Rank a stepladder beneath the present lighting fixture. Climb the ladder and get rid of the planet and light bulbs in the fixture. Then loosen the mounting screws and disconnect the fixture in the wiring in the junction box.

Loosen the wire clamp inside the junction box, and take out the junction box in the hole in the ceiling. Push the wiring through the hole and to the attic space above.

Remove the plastic grille in addition to the light and fan assembly in the fan housing. Then access the attic over the restroom and find the hole in the ceiling vacated from the junction box. Position the fan housing over the junction box hole between the ceiling joists and mark the outline of the housing onto the drywall with a pencil. Cut out the hole along the pencil lines with a keyhole saw. Position the fan housing so that the bottom border of the housing is flush with the bottom of the drywall, and attach the braces to the corresponding ceiling joists with 1 1/2-inch wood screws using a power drill. Slip the electrical wiring you removed from the lighting fixture through the hole in the access panel of the fan housing.

Find the nearest exterior wall where you would like the wall cap to be mounted for the port. Drill a pilot hole in the middle of the desired place with a 1/4-inch drill bit.

Move outside and position a extension ladder so that it is possible to get the 1/4-inch pilot hole against the side of the home. Put in a 4-inch hole saw to your power drill, and drill a 4-inch hole during the siding and sheathing.

Apply a bead of exterior caulk around the mounting flange of a 4-inch wall cap, then insert the wall cap’s duct to the hole in the wall, and mount the cap to the wall using 1 1/2-inch stainless steel screws.

Return to the attic and also connect a part of 4-inch flexible duct between the duct to the inside of the port cap along with the duct on the exhaust fan. Secure the joints with duct tape.

Return to the bathroom and also tighten the wiring clamp around the electric wires from inside the access panel of the fan housing. Connect the black wire from the electric switch to the black wire in the access panel with a wire nut, then link the wires in similar fashion. Wrap the end of the bare wire around the green grounding screw in the housing and tighten the screw with a screwdriver. Slide the wires to the access panel, and place the panel cover over the panel.

Slip the fan and lighting assembly to the housing, and link the electric plug to the socket to the access panel. Then tighten the mounting screws to fasten the fan and lighting to the housing.

Install one of the light lights in the preceding fixture to the lighting fixture of the fan. Rank the plastic grill over the housing and sprinkle the mounting wires into their slots before pushing the grill against the housing.

Turn the circuit breaker and test the operation of the fan and lighting.

How to Fix the Door Frame Behind the Lock

The side of a door frame in which the lock participates is called the “attack side” of the frame. The attack plunger passes a strike plate on the jamb and maintains the door closed, locked or both. The power of a door closing hard repeatedly, or being forced open, can damage the door frame in the area of the strike plate. When this happens, it’s necessary to fix the frame until it gets worse and needs replacing. The job isn’t difficult for the normal do-it-yourself enthusiast.


Open the door and then stabilize it with a doorstop. Loosen and remove the screws that hold the attack plate in the surface of the door jamb using a screwdriver. Take the plate off and save the plate and screws.

Cut the bead of caulking in the vertical seam in which the inner border of the door casing meets the outer edge of the jamb using a utility knife. Cut the vertical seam of caulking in the outer border of the casing in which it matches the wall from bottom to surface.

Start at the top of the vertical slice of casing. Insert the tip of a wood chisel in the seam in which the caulking was cut. Tap the grip of the chisel with a hammer to drive the tip completely under the casing. Pry on the handle of the chisel to detach the casing from the jamb and adjoining wall. Repeat the procedure in several places along the border of the casing to remove the piece.

Pull any finish nails left behind in the edge of the jamb or face of the wall using pliers. Pull finish nails from the rear side of the casing to prevent damaging the surface of the slice, with the pliers or claws of the hammer.

Repairing the Door Frame

Inspect the border and face of the door jamb in the area of the strike plate. If the jamb is split, then squeeze wood glue to the crack and nail the border of the jamb using 4d finish nails. Normally, two nails around one inch apart to the outer edge of the jamb will hold a split together while the glue dries.

Remove the doorstop and shut the door. Inspect the gap between the edge of the door and the surface of the jamb in the area of the strike plate. If the gap is over 1/8-inch wide, open the door and stabilize it using the doorstop.

Put in a wood shim from the gap behind the jamb in the area of the strike plate. Tap the finish with a hammer to make a 1/8-inch gap between the surface of the jamb and the border of the door. Secure the shim in place using a 6d finish nail throughout the surface of the jamb above and below the area of the strike plate. The nails must be 1 inch from the edge of the jamb to prevent splitting the wood.

Put in a 7/8-inch flat wood piece in a power or cordless drill. Utilize the existing hole for the attack from the jamb for a guide and drill through the wood shim.

Reattach the piece of casing in the face of the door jamb using 4d finish nails in the inner edge from bottom to top of the jamb. Attach the outer border of the casing in the wall with 6d nails in 8-inch intervals from bottom to surface. Set the nails 1/16-inch deep for stitch using a nail set and the hammer.

The Way To Cut Ceramic Tile That's Already Installed

Ceramic tiles are tough, durable coverings for both floors and walls. Installed properly, they could last for decades. Unfortunately, since the tiles are so durable, in case a brand new pipe is being laid or the tiles will need to be removed to achieve a few pipes behind the wall, then it is often simpler to cut them through than it is to remove them. While loose tiles are cut using a tile wet saw, installed tiles need to be cut with hand tools. To create box or square cuts in the tile, or to cut out large pieces of tile, use an angle grinder. To create circular cuts to accommodate pipes, use a hole saw.

Angle Grinder

Mark the tile or tiles which need to be trimmed using a grease pencil. The angle grinder may cut the tiles either on the esophagus or right through the tile; create as precise markings as you can to make sure the minimum amount of cutting will be required.

Put on safety glasses and a dust mask. The angle grinder will kick up plenty of ceramic and cement dust as it cuts. You’ll most likely need to cut all of the way through the backing of this tile as well as the tile itself. This may entail cutting through fiberglass, too, so take precautions against inhaling the dust.

Turn the angle grinder so the blade will satisfy the tile perpendicularly. Turn the grinder and thrust the blade straight down to the tile and its own maintenance. After you have cut through, it is possible to pull the blade back for a short cut, or thrust the sword away from you to continue cutting through the tile for longer cuts. Pull the blade straight up and out and turn off the saw between cuts when switching locations or angles.

Hole Saw

Mark the center of the area that you would like to cut the tile using a grease pencil. Put on eye protection and a dust mask to protect against dust.

Pour cooling oil within the tile where the cut will be created. The hole saw will heat up quickly; the cooling will stop it from heat before it cuts through the tile.

Attach the hole saw little to the drill, and place the tip of the guiding piece against the mark you made on the tile. Twist the back and forth a few times to assist the little begin to bite to the glaze on the tile. Initiate the drill, holding it straight up and down against the tile.

Permit the guiding piece to drill straight to the tile. The outer border of this hole saw will cut around the piece, producing a bigger hole at the tile, suitable for pipes to pass through. The little will hold the saw set up and keep it from wandering as possible cut. Keep on drilling straight down until you cut through the tile and its underlayment.

The Way to Avert a Jumbo Mortgage

A jumbo mortgage is a home loan that exceeds the loan size limit of these government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The GSEs are limited by the Federal Housing Finance Agency on the size of mortgages they could accept for purchase and securitization. Preventing a jumbo loan means obtaining a mortgage which complies with all the conforming limits set by Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.

Look up the conforming loan limit to the county in which the home is located that you need to buy or refinance. The federal limit in 2010 is $417,000. High-cost areas might have limits. The Federal Housing Finance Agency site provides a list of the conforming limit for every single county.

Determine whether the funding for the home you want to buy or refinance exceeds the conforming loan limits. If the suggested amount is over the limit for your area, the loan will be regarded as a jumbo loan.

Plan to generate a big down payment or cash-in refinance to make the loan balance below the conforming limit. For example, if you want to refinance a mortgage with a current balance of $500,000 and the conforming limit in the area is $417,000, you would have to do a cash-in refinancing and deposit $83,000 with the mortgage company to bring the new loan down into the conforming limit.

Is it Better to Purchase Rent or a Home?

Making the incorrect decision when deciding between purchasing or leasing a residence may lead to financial ruin. While the individual is given limited control over the home by leasing homeownership may consist of repairs and maintenance. A person who rents a home is typically known as a renter, and a person who owns a house is typically known as a property owner or homeowner.


A tenant is usually signed to a rental, the authorized contact used to specify the rental terms, such as the quantity of rent paid and the rules the renter must abide by while leasing the dwelling. The renter pays the property owner, or landlord, the specified rent amount on the due dates defined in the rental, like on the first day of every month. Homeowners have monthly bills regarding the home, like a home payment or property tax bills. A deed, which will be a legal real estate record, is used to demonstrate ownership of a home.


A renter can lease an whole house, an apartment, a townhouse or a condo. Some tenants are under subleases. A sublease, or sublet, is when an present tenant remains under a lease with a landlord, but is leasing out the residence to a different renter. Homeowners may have a house, townhouse or condo. Some flats, generally found in large cities, are possessed by a individual as opposed to leased by a tenant.


A tenant might not have the ability to make minor or major cosmetic changes to the residence, like painting a room a certain color. The landlord generally needs to approve of any remodeling of their rental and has the right, as the proprietor, to deny that the tenant permission. The renter can be subject to special restrictions, like no pets permitted in the rental. The renter can shed the rental and also be forced to move when he violates any special conditions of the rental. The lease payments are income for the landlord and do not go toward buying the home. A homeowner remains bound by the housing rules and regulations in his area, but is generally able to make most cosmetic improvements or upgrades without permission. A property owner generally must make and pay for repairs to the home and can be responsible for all maintenance.


Tenants are usually not liable for repairs or, in some cases, landscaping or lawn care. A tenant can move once the rental is up or terminate the rental when she needs to relocate. Extra fees, such as property taxes and homeowner’s insurance, are covered by the landlord. Homeowners do not need to request permission to change the home, plus they have any fixtures or enhancements once installed. A property owner can have more privacy, as leasing dwellings may have shared walls with neighbors.


Renting isn’t necessarily”throwing money away,” a frequent phrase connected with leasing. The leasing payments are buying the usage of their residence, and leasing can be the best option for a person who doesn’t have the financial resources or the time available for the upkeep of a home. A homeowner can have much less privacy, especially in townhouses or condos. A house in a planned neighborhood can be subject to a number of restrictions, such as limits on what can be shown on the lawn.

Directions on John Deere Lawn Tractors for Belt Replacement

When the mower drive belt slide in your own John Deere lawn tractor starts to squeal or snaps completely, you know that it’s time to replace it. It’s a good idea to keep a replacement so the belt can change immediately and return to mowing since rubber straps are one of the first things to go on compressors. It’s a project most homeowners can accomplish with ease although the idea of changing the belt might appear overwhelming at first.

Park the tractor on a flat area and set the parking brake. Disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug. Remove in the ignition.

Put a wood block beneath the left and right side of the mower deck in preparation for deck removal. Adjust the deck height lever. By removing the hooks and washers linkages are lifted by disconnect the deck. Eliminate the linkages in the deck and disconnect the rear draft arm. Disconnect the mower deck drive belt to fully separate the deck from the tractor. Gently remove and allow the deck wheels to touch the floor. Roll the deck from underneath the mower and store it aside.

Pull the belt and remove the screws which hold the two belt covers in place covers from the deck. Loosen the sheaves and pull on the belt in the mower.

Route the belt around the sheaves and pulleys, following exactly the same path as the belt which you removed. The belt covers and screw them into position. Retighten the sheaves together with the belt in position. John Deere recommends tightening the sheaves.

Place the deck height lever in the transport position to start reattaching the mower deck. Roll the deck under the machine. Place the cubes underneath the deck on the left and side side and lower the deck height lever. Reinstall the pins and washers you removed before to reattach the linkage. Reattach the rear draft arm.
