Refrigerator Not Dispensing Water or Making Ice?I moved into a house that had a WRS22WRAD1 refrigerator in a room in the basement. It cools fine, however the ice maker and water dispenser doesn't work. If I try to get water from the front panel with the selector switch on "Water" it dumps water into the ice maker. If I slid the selector switch to "Ice" it just turns the auger in the ice maker, but never makes ice. The ice maker does cycle, but no ice is ever made.

Finch Laid an Egg?Two weeks ago I got a male zebra finch to pair with my female. The male immediately started doing his breeding dance. A few days after that my female laid one egg and none since. I've been keeping an eye on her checking every day for signs of her being egg bound so far there are zero. The egg's most likely a dud, but each finch takes turns sitting on the egg so maybe the egg is not a dud. Should I be worrying that my female only laid one egg? Is there a reason it's only one?

John Deere 150 Keeps Stalling?My John Deere 150 starts for a few seconds then dies. The tractor/mower has 30 hours on it. I have changed the plugs, gas, air and gas filters, but no change. I can get it to crank successfully only by manually holding the start switch open for about 10 seconds. It runs great after that. If I turn it off for a few minutes, it will start again OK. But If I leave it over-night, the same problem returns. I don't like holding the starter switch on; afraid it may do some damage.
