Q:

What can I do if my satellite universal remote won’t control my new DVD recorder?

A:

Seems the satellite remote was from a time when DVD players where starting to come out. I doubt that you would be able to fine a code that lets the remote send the correct signals to control your DVD recorder. My suggestion would be to find a universal remote with learning capability. The remote will read the IR signal from your original remote and attempt to emulate it where you program it to. The code you are inputting on your satellite remote is not really programming the remote, its just telling it what set of signals to use that has been preprogrammed in the remote. This is why I think you might have little luck getting it to talk to your DVD recorder.

Q:

Why does my 1997 side by side Kenmore refrigerator have a gas smell?

A:

The refrigerator has a sealed cooling system that is filled with a Freon refrigerant. If the refrigerator is still cooling, it is not likely that the Freon has leaked out. Even if it did, this Freon would not be toxic or harmful in the small amount contained in the refrigerator cooling system.

Spoiled foods can cause odors. After they are removed, the residue in the styrofoam insulation of the refrigerator can develop mold or mildew that can give off a gas-like smell.

Stagnant water and/or debris in the drain pan of the refrigerator could also be a source of the smell.

It is not likely that a dangerous or toxic gas is coming from the refrigerator even if it is the source of the bad smell as noted above.

A more dangerous situation could be caused by a gas appliance leak that may appear to be coming from the refrigerator. If you have gas appliances in your home and think that you have a gas leak, I recommend that you leave the home immediately and call the gas company from a neighbor's house. The gas company can check for a gas leak.
