    Hi there! I have a problem restoring an antique French cast iron wood stove. As I was derusting it, one of the feet broke loose. It's the part that was holding it to the body that broke. I guess it's a bold but I am not sure. The reason I am not sure is specifically because I am having a...

    I don't know if this is the right place to ask about this. If it isn't, please point me in a better direction. My housemate forgot that one of our stove's burners was hot, and left a spatula on it, which melted. After it cooled, we got all we could off with a knife, and there's only a little...

    Hello, we are redoing our basement in a 1960's house and the previous owner did a horrible job running wire for new lights and just cutting the wire where he needed then splicing it back together. He literally punched holes in the drywall ceiling to move the wire around then put in a drop...

The cable could run directly from the basement, up the left side of the house to the kitchen, which is on the left side of the house. But, running the cable this way is difficult. It...

    I am having a gas line extended to hook up a new gas range, and I have run into an issue with the clearance of the counter just next to the range. I only have 13 inches of clearance (the cabinets are from the '40s and I guess they did things differently back then). See the photo. The first...

    I have an old coil cooktop that's vented underneath. It's not on an island but is on a "peninsula" so it is not up against a wall. We want to put in a glass top cooktop range. We really never use the fan it has and it's my understanding that under-mounted fans draw heat away from your cooking...

    Hi, I'm currently in the process of renovating my kitchen. I will need to cut a few holes behind the range to run electrical up to install an hood fan. Currently the existing drywall looks like there is a layer of white sandy material behind it with specks of possible vermiculite, my best...

    I'm planning to install a new cooktop, and the instructions say to connect a 40-amp circuit fused on both sides of the line. What does "fused on both sides of the line" mean? I understand that I need a separate circuit, 4 or 3-wire (I'll use 4), 8-gauge wire and 40 amp breaker. The oven that...

    We have a gas cooktop (with electric start) installed in a pennisula. The gas line runs through the floor, in the cabinet below.
