We take for granted things like refrigeratorsat least until they break down. Then, reflecting our throw-away culture, our first impulse is to relegate these seemingly impenetrable boxes of electromechanical marvel to the junk pile. As this book demonstrates, however, a little practical know-how can keep these almond-colored beauties running on and on. In straightforward text, peppered with photos, it provides exhaustive diagnostic and repair procedures for any malady likely to befall a refrigerator, washer, dryer, or dishwasher. It also offers solid advice on preventive maintenance, parts suppliers, safety factors, even things like extended service warranties (avoid them, says Rains). A fair amount of technical understanding and facility with tools is assumed. For larger how-to collections. Bill Demo, Tompkins Cortland Community Coll., Dryden, N.Y.
