    • ANSWER:
      Sears.com is a good place to start. Many items have reviews from people who actually own the appliance with the pros and cons. Another site is ajmadison.com and lowes.com which also have reviews from customers. Consumers Reports web site is helpful although you need to be a member before entering the comparison sites.

  2. QUESTION:
    What's the best place to buy appliances?
    I am redoing my kitchen and I'd like to get new stainless steel appliances. Two sided fridge, dishwaser, wall mounted oven, counter top range, mounted microwave and a wine cooler. Where can I get the best deal? I have looked around and it seems no one offers package deals. We are in NJ by the way , if that helps. Thks!

    • ANSWER:
      Well, SEARS is good and they carry brand names and have "coupon" savings... Home Depot has some charge card incentives and discounts like deferred billing... They also match price... As does LOWE'S....

      BEST BUY has a nice appliance section and they match price as well.. If you sign up for the FREE rewards program for evey purchase made with or without the charge you get BEST BUY money back...!

      Just shop around and narrow it down to something that you like.... Then see what other stores will do to get your business... Since the economy is crappy.. You might be able to get some sort of deal.....

  3. QUESTION:
    Where is the best place to buy kitchen appliances?
    My wife and I have been doing some shopping and we've been astonished at the prices of stainless steel appliances... We're hoping someone out there knows of a great discount store that sells appliances for a lot less than retail. Specifically, we're looking to purchase a cooktop, wall oven and microwave, and a dishwasher.

    We find the prices are all fixed between: Sears, Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, etc... so please don't post any regular stores like these.

    Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      If budget is a huge concern (and when isn't it), stainless is expensive. You can usually knock off a good 0-0 per item if you go with black or white. And white appliances are making a comeback with the designer's. And buy your appliances based on features and reliability rather than looks. Yeah, you want them to look nice but a pretty appliance that doesn't work for crap will do nothing but tick you off everytime you look at it or use it.

      Or you can do what I did. I have a mixture of stainless and black. Stainless microwave, stainless back splash behind the stove with a black stove and range hood. Black dishwasher and when the time comes, I will be getting a black fridge. The black appliances have enough shiny metal on them that it all works together.

      Whatever you buy make sure there is a local repair facility for that brand. Friends bought a LG stove from Best Buy; got a great price on it because it had been a display model. 3-4 months down the road the thing starts shutting off anytime it felt like it. Came to find out that there is not an authorized repair service in our area. Closest was 1 1/2 hours one way. LG wouldn't pay the repair man for his time and mileage and he wouldn't come without being paid. Friends ended up paying him out of their pockets and LG paid for the repairs to the stove under warranty. They are still trying to get their money out of LG.

      Check your local appliance stores also. Some have attractive package prices they might be able to work with you on. Personally, I'd rather pay 0 more for an appliance from my local guy than buy it at a big box store. I know if I ever have a problem, that he will service it for me in the fastest, most cost effective manner. In the 27 years I've been dealing with our local shop, I had only paid for 3 service calls and all were greatly discounted. And if it's something I can fix myself, he tells me how to do it and makes sure I have the right parts to do the job. But if it's some what of an emergency, he's here within an hour. You don't get that kind of service from a big box store.

      My stove quit recently and they know I cook a lot. They were here within an hour of my calling and we made the decision to get a new one after the diagnosis. But the repairman fixed it enough that I could at least use the cook top until they could get my new one delivered. And I got free delivery, set up and haul away of the old one. If I had bought elsewhere, I would have had to pay for at least one or more of those services. Just got my $ back on that one.

      And when my dryer died one time, I had 3 adults, 2 teenagers and a 6 week old baby to do laundry for and it was January and not at all conducive to hanging clothes outside to dry. I called and the repairman was here in 15 minutes. Unfortunately it would have cost more to fix than to buy a new one but I didn't pay for the service call and had my new dryer that afternoon.

  4. QUESTION:
    Did businesses as we see them today start in the 1980s?
    Lowe's, Home Depot, Grocery Stores, Barnes and Noble, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, health cares, daycare centers, the way we educate, the way of technology and life all over the World, the World News, crimes that we commit, advertising markets, the music that we listen to today on the radio, the way we defend for ourselves, appliances that we use such as house fans that keep our air in our homes, computers, basically the lifestyle that we as humans live today, did all this start in the 1980s?

    • ANSWER:
      Those businesses on your list are actually subsidiaries of other businesses and mergers. During the 1960's and 70's there were a few successful boycotts that put a financial dent in a few long standing US Corporations. After that, these corporations diversified and spent their profits on smaller businesses and got into research and development. The US government helped to fund these ventures and even went so far as to supply free and low wage employees under the guise of "student trainees, vocational training programs and welfare to work.

      Do a bit of research and you will see how many of these corporations are linked into one another through suppliers, shippers, packaging, processing, and a whole host of odd links that the average person would never think about. Proctor and Gamble is a prime example of diversification for the sole purpose of protecting it's investors as well as it's investments! It would be utterly impossible to boycott P&G and all of their many holdings because they have managed to put their hand in every corner of the universe!...and be a job CREATOR! A boycott for them is simply free advertising that boosts their bottom line. Ouch. Well played in any bodies book!

      It only became noticeable in the 1980's. Sad to say. There is not much chance of taking America back if we don't start opening more manufacturing plants in this country again and allowing the Mom & Pop shops to sell products that come with high quality customer service and repair/replacement policies that do not cost the consumer an arm and a leg and a 6 month wait!

  5. QUESTION:
    what is the best brand of ktchen appliances have good quality?

    • ANSWER:
      Before you buy anything, make sure there is a local, authorized repair service for that brand in your area. These big box stores (Lowe's, Best Buy, Home Depot) sell them all but a lot of times, there is not anyone authorized by the manufacturer to work on them should you have an issue under warranty. These stores use that as an "excuse" to push you into buying the expensive extended warranty through them. They say we'll take care of it. Even they have trouble in some areas with some brands. Don't buy the warranty!

      Pop into the local library and take a look at Consumer Reports 2010 buying guide. That will give you a lot of information right there.

      I always buy my appliances from our local dealer rather than one of the big box stores and have for years. I know he won't steer me in the wrong direction and will be here to fix the thing if I have an issue. I have not been unhappy with anything I have purchased from him in the almost 30 years I've been dealing with him.

      And you get service you won't get from the Big Box stores. If I call with a disaster, his service people are here the same day. He will rearrange their schedule to get them here pronto. When our old fridge left us know if was not going to continue to work much longer, he rearranged their entire delivery schedule for the next day so we got the new one before the old one died. They delivered for free and properly installed it, took all the packaging and stuff away with them and cleaned up their mess.

      In the almost 30 years I've dealt with my appliance guy, I have paid for 3 service calls. Two of them were reduced greatly because we decided to buy new rather than repair; the age of the offending appliance dictated replacing rather than a big repair bill. Most of the time if I call with an issue, he tells me how to fix it or says come out, get the part and I'll walk ya through it. And he's not sent me in the wrong direction yet!

      Yeah, I might pay a little more when I purchase but the peace of mind of knowing I have someone to call who will fix it and do it quickly should I have an issue is well worth the price.

      I have friends who bought a LG stove from Best Buy. 4 months down the road, the burners start shutting off when they feel like it. Come to find out no local service provider. Of course, LG won't pay the serviceman from 1 1/2 hours (one way) anything extra to come so he won't. Last I heard, our friends had to pay his travel time & mileage out of their pockets and LG covered the labor and the parts. They were seriously contemplating suing LG but realized that would be a whole lot of hassle and cost more in lawyer fees that it was worth.

  6. QUESTION:
    What is a good fitting budget for this kitchen remodel?
    $_____ Dark Granite Tiled Flooring
    $_____ Carrera Marble Counter tops
    $_____ Dark Cherry-wood Cabinets
    $_____ Titanium/Stainless Steel Appliances

    Please help me with the Stainless Steel vs Titanium dilemma too.

    • ANSWER:
      No one could possibly give you an answer because you did not give us any details. If I asked you how much would a green car cost you would call the men in white jackets to come haul me away.

      Now.....What is the size of your kitchen, what cabinet door style, what wood species, plywood vs particleboard box, brand of cabinet, trim packages, where you buy the cabinets,......the list goes on.

      If you buy your cabinets or any other products from your Home Depots or Lowes you will pay full list price. You would not pay full list price/MSRP/sticker price for your new car so why pay it for cabinets. Instead go to the small showrooms who also offer free design services. This goes for all the products you need. Most all small showrooms offer 35 to 50% off list price. If they dont then dont go.

      Dont let anyone give you a lineal footage price because it is not accurate. If a 36" base cost 0 and 36" oven cabinet cost 00 then how can a linial foot estimate be accurate? Run from those clowns.

      The only way to get an accurate estimate is to have a professional come to your home. In all cases except the big box stores, this service is free. Now counter tops can be estimated by lineal footage but even that is variable by quality.

      When a profesional Kitchen Designer comes to your home the first question they will ask is what is your budget. They will design around your budget and stick to it. And from the products you listed, you have some good expensive taste.

  7. QUESTION:
    where can I find a wiring diagram for a circuit breaker for my house?

    • ANSWER:
      Ok, a circuit breaker is an individual part of the circuit panel (or 'box) that controls the electrical supply throughout a home. Many appliances have their own built in circuit breakers too. Only a licensed electrician should be doing something that would require a schematic for the circuit box, or an individual breaker/appliance.

      If you meant to ask about locating what circuit breakers control what circuits throughout the house, there should be a label on the door of the circuit box - HOPEFULLY - the label is filled out, lol. Often it is not. As others have suggested, you can turn each breaker off, one at a time, and run through the house trying to find out what was turned off. Additional people throughout the home can help with this, but it can still be a chore. There are gadgets that you can use to help make finding circuits easier. This is one such device - http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=12334-1781-GET-1200&lpage=none&semsite=yssp&sembrand=n&semcatg=Unassigned&semsubcatg=111408&semkeyword=Circuit+Tracker-+Circuit+Breaker+Finder+GET-1200

      Now.. if perchance you live in a manufactured home, you can contact the manufacturer for your home model's diagram. It should have been included with the home-owner's package (usually a large 3-ring notebook, or two). The manufacturer's contact information should be on the 'data-plate' which is most often located on the inside of a kitchen cabinet, often above the sink.

  8. QUESTION:
    looking for a heavy duty exstension cord?
    I'm looking for a 2-3 ft. 12-14 gauge extension cord to run my treadmill. Where do you find a short extension cord?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, as a couple of the other fellows have said, Home Depot, Lowe's, Menard's, all home improvement stores, as well as any decent hardware store, should carry appliance cords or air conditioner cords as they are sometimes called. They come in 3' up to 12' lengths, depending on what you need. The boxes or cardboard covers they're packaged in should give the information you're looking for as far as the wire size. The #12 is the same as your house wiring so it should be plenty heavy enough for the treadmill.

  9. QUESTION:
    about incandescent bulbs which can be used in fridge and wave oven etc.?

    Thank you, friends.

    my email: chuhuaping2006@gmail.com

    • ANSWER:
      Hey Wendy, you can find appliance bulbs at most places selling light bulbs! Try a hardware store in the lighting department too, I know they sell them at Lowes and Home Depot, that's where I got my replacements. The packaging states what type of appliance they are for and they are made to be used that way.

  10. QUESTION:
    It is possible to covert a 24v n 200 am auto dc alternator into 240v n 20 am ac generator?
    Is DC alternator from truck/tractor or heavy equipment vehicles is the same size as the dc alternator of car. If there is 12v 100amp alternator for car. Is there also a 24v 200-300amp alternator for truck and tractor? What is the maximum ampere a 24v alternator can hold? Can I convert, let say a 24v and 200amp dc alternator into 240v and 20 amp 60 hz ac generator and use it for 24 hours? My intention is to use it to supply electrical needs of hi-wattage appliances particularly 3 airconditioner 1000 watts each only when I need it.

    • ANSWER:
      Almost anything is "possible", you can send a man to the moon if you spend enough money. And you can bring him back home if you spend a lot more.

      The simple answer to your questions is "not economically". At the power levels you're discussing (several thousand watts) the most economical solution is a self-contained gasoline fueled 110VAC generator from Home Depot or Lowes.

      If you're trying to make this package mobile, then pull it as a trailer!

      Good luck!

  11. QUESTION:
    how to put in a 220 outlet?

    • ANSWER:
      Determine your amperage needs based on the appliance that you will be plugging in. An electric stove needs about 40 amps. A lower-end MIG welder needs about 40 amps. Check the owners manual for your appliance. Buy a breaker (of the brand that matches your main panel box) that is the correct amperage for a 220 or (also known as 240 volt) outlet. I believe these run about or so and are available from Lowes/etc.

      First determine how far (in feet) the wire will have to travel from your main panel to the outlet. Ideally, this will be less than 100 feet. If the cord you will be using from the outlet to your appliance is lengthy, consider that in your total distance too. Use the link below and type in your parameters: voltage, amps, distance. Try several different wire guage sizes (smaller the size, the thicker the wire). You may find that 10guage is okay. Might need 8 guage instead. Wire has gotten expensive, so you will want to be precise. Probably best to use copper wire. Using the link below, be sure to keep your voltage drop under 5%. Upgrade the wire guage to lower the voltage drop.

      In some areas (based on local codes) you will need to run conduit pipe to enclose your wiring. One easy way to determine if this is the case... look at the wiring for another 220 volt circuit. It it exposed romex? Or enclosed conduit? Bending conduit takes some practice, but you'll need 3/4inch pipe and a correpsonding pipe bender for this job. Also available at Lowes.

      Purchase the appropriate Romex or individual rolls of wire of the correct guage size for your application. This is the predominate expense of this job. Wire has gotten expensive. If Romex, get some hefty sized staples to tack the wire into place.

      Try to run the wire in one, uninterrupted, length. Trying to wire-nut this heavier guage wire can be done, but complicates things. If you are buying non-Romex inside conduit, you will need a red, black, and white wire. The conduit will be acting as your bare wire. If Romex, be sure it has a red, black, white, and bare or green wire.

      The red and black wires each carry 110. These are connected to the two terminals on the 220 breaker that you bought. The white wire connects to the place in your main panel where all the other white wires connect. Green or bare wire connects to where all the bare wires connect. Follow what was done before. Good idea to wear the safety glasses while working in electrical panels. If you throw a spark, you wont be able to move fast enough to dodge it and you only get two eyes. Turn off your main breaker before removing cover panel if this is your first time in here.

      The recepticle on the appliance end of your new outlet will need to match the plug on your appliance. You may find that in some cases (a new stove, for example) there is no plug and it just hard wires into your wiring inside a junction box. In other cases you will be able to determine your own plug. If this is the case, go with a twist lock 4 prong plug that accommodates the amperage rating of your appliance. The packaging of the outlet recepticle will advise you on making the wire connections.

      You just saved yourself a couple hundred bucks worth of electrician labor. But if any of this sounds scary, call one.

      Good luck !!

  12. QUESTION:
    does this mean something worse than it seems?
    i just saw 1 cockroach/water bug whatever next to my dog's bowl is there more? i havent seen a cockroach in my house for wow 5 yrs maybe? and then i only saw 1 also i doubt theres more but just curious

    • ANSWER:
      If you saw one, there is more. Sometimes they come back.
      I live in Florida and roaches and lots of other bugs love our climate and homes. I've had professional exterminations but now know how to do it myself.
      You can save a lot and get rid of the roaches by going to Home Depot or Lowes and getting some Combat roach gel. It comes in a syringe type tube and will kill all the roaches. Combat roach bait stations are nice too. You can put them behind appliances and in cabinets, drawer and anywhere the roaches like to hang out. Each type of treatment costs less than and there's no harmful fumes and residue that could harm your dog or yourself. Just follow the directions on the package.

      The only way to get an accurate estimate is to have a professional come to your home. In all cases except the big box stores, this service is free. Now counter tops can be estimated by lineal footage but even that is variable by quality.

      When a profesional Kitchen Designer comes to your home the first question they will ask is what is your budget. They will design around your budget and stick to it. And from the products you listed, you have some good expensive taste.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What is best ranked mid priced kitchen appliance package?
    Looking for new appliances and unsure of black or stainless steel. Also, cannot find good site to rate entire package of appliances.

    • ANSWER:
      Sears.com is a good place to start. Many items have reviews from people who actually own the appliance with the pros and cons. Another site is ajmadison.com and lowes.com which also have reviews from customers. Consumers Reports web site is helpful although you need to be a member before entering the comparison sites. Also, if you go to a particular product site, such as KitchenAid or Bosch for instance, you can do comparison shopping with the different models as well. You may want to do stainless steel with black trim or black with stainless steel trim. All stainless steel appliances gives the kitchen a coldness affect. By adding black in your color scheme it will actually compliment the stainless steel appliances and give it an elegant look. There are sales going on now and until the end of the year for appliances; Sears always seems to have some type of special each month depending on what name brand you want. Do your homework before buying; it is amazing what type of features you can get from one model to another. Bottom line; know what type of features you want, compare the brands you like, be sure you'll get good customer service if repairs are needed and go from there. Some stores have a price break if you buy two or more appliances at a time also.
      Hope this helps!! :-)

  2. QUESTION:
    What's the best place to buy appliances?
    I am redoing my kitchen and I'd like to get new stainless steel appliances. Two sided fridge, dishwaser, wall mounted oven, counter top range, mounted microwave and a wine cooler. Where can I get the best deal? I have looked around and it seems no one offers package deals. We are in NJ by the way , if that helps. Thks!

    • ANSWER:
      Well, SEARS is good and they carry brand names and have "coupon" savings... Home Depot has some charge card incentives and discounts like deferred billing... They also match price... As does LOWE'S....

      BEST BUY has a nice appliance section and they match price as well.. If you sign up for the FREE rewards program for evey purchase made with or without the charge you get BEST BUY money back...!

      Just shop around and narrow it down to something that you like.... Then see what other stores will do to get your business... Since the economy is crappy.. You might be able to get some sort of deal.....

  3. QUESTION:
    Where is the best place to buy kitchen appliances?
    My wife and I have been doing some shopping and we've been astonished at the prices of stainless steel appliances... We're hoping someone out there knows of a great discount store that sells appliances for a lot less than retail. Specifically, we're looking to purchase a cooktop, wall oven and microwave, and a dishwasher.

    We find the prices are all fixed between: Sears, Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, etc... so please don't post any regular stores like these.

    Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      If budget is a huge concern (and when isn't it), stainless is expensive. You can usually knock off a good 0-0 per item if you go with black or white. And white appliances are making a comeback with the designer's. And buy your appliances based on features and reliability rather than looks. Yeah, you want them to look nice but a pretty appliance that doesn't work for crap will do nothing but tick you off everytime you look at it or use it.

      Or you can do what I did. I have a mixture of stainless and black. Stainless microwave, stainless back splash behind the stove with a black stove and range hood. Black dishwasher and when the time comes, I will be getting a black fridge. The black appliances have enough shiny metal on them that it all works together.

      Whatever you buy make sure there is a local repair facility for that brand. Friends bought a LG stove from Best Buy; got a great price on it because it had been a display model. 3-4 months down the road the thing starts shutting off anytime it felt like it. Came to find out that there is not an authorized repair service in our area. Closest was 1 1/2 hours one way. LG wouldn't pay the repair man for his time and mileage and he wouldn't come without being paid. Friends ended up paying him out of their pockets and LG paid for the repairs to the stove under warranty. They are still trying to get their money out of LG.

      Check your local appliance stores also. Some have attractive package prices they might be able to work with you on. Personally, I'd rather pay 0 more for an appliance from my local guy than buy it at a big box store. I know if I ever have a problem, that he will service it for me in the fastest, most cost effective manner. In the 27 years I've been dealing with our local shop, I had only paid for 3 service calls and all were greatly discounted. And if it's something I can fix myself, he tells me how to do it and makes sure I have the right parts to do the job. But if it's some what of an emergency, he's here within an hour. You don't get that kind of service from a big box store.

      My stove quit recently and they know I cook a lot. They were here within an hour of my calling and we made the decision to get a new one after the diagnosis. But the repairman fixed it enough that I could at least use the cook top until they could get my new one delivered. And I got free delivery, set up and haul away of the old one. If I had bought elsewhere, I would have had to pay for at least one or more of those services. Just got my $ back on that one.

      And when my dryer died one time, I had 3 adults, 2 teenagers and a 6 week old baby to do laundry for and it was January and not at all conducive to hanging clothes outside to dry. I called and the repairman was here in 15 minutes. Unfortunately it would have cost more to fix than to buy a new one but I didn't pay for the service call and had my new dryer that afternoon.

  4. QUESTION:
    What is a good fitting budget for this kitchen remodel?
    $_____ Dark Granite Tiled Flooring
    $_____ Carrera Marble Counter tops
    $_____ Dark Cherry-wood Cabinets
    $_____ Titanium/Stainless Steel Appliances

    Please help me with the Stainless Steel vs Titanium dilemma too.

    • ANSWER:
      No one could possibly give you an answer because you did not give us any details. If I asked you how much would a green car cost you would call the men in white jackets to come haul me away.

      Now.....What is the size of your kitchen, what cabinet door style, what wood species, plywood vs particleboard box, brand of cabinet, trim packages, where you buy the cabinets,......the list goes on.

      If you buy your cabinets or any other products from your Home Depots or Lowes you will pay full list price. You would not pay full list price/MSRP/sticker price for your new car so why pay it for cabinets. Instead go to the small showrooms who also offer free design services. This goes for all the products you need. Most all small showrooms offer 35 to 50% off list price. If they dont then dont go.

      Dont let anyone give you a lineal footage price because it is not accurate. If a 36" base cost 0 and 36" oven cabinet cost 00 then how can a linial foot estimate be accurate? Run from those clowns.

      The only way to get an accurate estimate is to have a professional come to your home. In all cases except the big box stores, this service is free. Now counter tops can be estimated by lineal footage but even that is variable by quality.

  5. QUESTION:
    where can I find a wiring diagram for a circuit breaker for my house?

    • ANSWER:
      Ok, a circuit breaker is an individual part of the circuit panel (or 'box) that controls the electrical supply throughout a home. Many appliances have their own built in circuit breakers too. Only a licensed electrician should be doing something that would require a schematic for the circuit box, or an individual breaker/appliance.

      If you meant to ask about locating what circuit breakers control what circuits throughout the house, there should be a label on the door of the circuit box - HOPEFULLY - the label is filled out, lol. Often it is not. As others have suggested, you can turn each breaker off, one at a time, and run through the house trying to find out what was turned off. Additional people throughout the home can help with this, but it can still be a chore. There are gadgets that you can use to help make finding circuits easier. This is one such device - http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=12334-1781-GET-1200&lpage=none&semsite=yssp&sembrand=n&semcatg=Unassigned&semsubcatg=111408&semkeyword=Circuit+Tracker-+Circuit+Breaker+Finder+GET-1200

      Now.. if perchance you live in a manufactured home, you can contact the manufacturer for your home model's diagram. It should have been included with the home-owner's package (usually a large 3-ring notebook, or two). The manufacturer's contact information should be on the 'data-plate' which is most often located on the inside of a kitchen cabinet, often above the sink.

  6. QUESTION:
    Remodelling kitchen. Should I hire a Certified Kitchen Planner?
    I'm going to do a moderate kitchen renovation. We're keeping the same floor plan, but would like to replace the cabinets, counters, floor + appliances. It's not going to be some fancy european gourmet kitchen . . just a 2008 version of what is already there.

    Given the limited electrical and plumbing work, I'm fairly confident I can direct much of the work myself.

    I have considered hiring a "Certified Kitchen Planner", but have no idea of their rates or fees or if they add much value. I've heard that they get substantial disounts from cabinet makers. If they can give me the plan, I'm happy to shop around for the best cabinets and manage the remodelling myself.

    Has anyone done this??? Is it cheaper/better to just go to Lowes or Home Depot (as in, is the full package deal that a high volume dealer like Home Depot better than something an independant certified kitchen planner can provide)?

    • ANSWER:
      I'm an interior designer and i would direct you to use the services of a professional-but not a CKP,if you are willing and capable of doing all the measuring ,shopping, handling of delivery schedules,accounting, are confident that you can put the right look together etc. then go with a licensed contractor instead. it will save you a great deal of money be sure to really think and plan out everything out ahead of signing a contract-as well as date of expected completion with a penalty for delays caused by the contracted help.Lowe's has a competent design service for the type of remodel you're looking for(having worked with both i wouldn't recommend home depot)standard discount is 15% and you'd pay at least that to the CKP! good luck
