Foodsaver FM3600 Not working - No Power, No lights - Troubleshoot why

I had recently purchased this Foodsaver model FM3600 for my mother, having only used it once before to seal a few items and store it on the shelf, in the next use, after a few items it up and died.  Though Foodsaver honored the warranty, this thing feels so cheap for the price, I was curious to see what it was made of before turning it in.          Click here to see more......

Sears Silvertone Twin Twelve 1484 Major Restoration Project

Chris called me up from Cornerstone music with an amplifier in such disrepair that he was giving it to me for free.  I have a sneaking suspicion he took hard to see pictures in the text messages for fear I might not show up to pick up the amp.  What I saw was horrible.   I have a good feeling that this was out in the weather for a while or at best in a wet basement for a great many years exposed to the elements.

Kia Optima Brake Lights Wont Turn Off Fix - Also Fixes TCS Light, and Other Issues

This was interesting and I thought I'd share this because it was just going to be a quick video on the repair on the switch itself, because the rubber gets old and cracks causing the primary issue, but what was more interesting, is due to the integration of all of the systems of the car, how many other systems become effected.

Even more interesting is Google does NOT want you to see this video and has removed every trace of it from their search engine so i'm adding links to is everywhere
