Sunny Cloud Sunday


The lifespan of a typical Berndnaut Smilde sculpture is 10 seconds—just long enough to be photographed. And his sculptures are as unusual as they are ethereal: Smilde makes perfect miniature clouds in a diverse array of indoor locations, from coal mines to cathedrals.

He’s been at for several years now and calls the ever-expanding series Nimbus. Last month, he brought his weather wizardry to Frieze New York. There Smilde allowed onlookers to sit in on two days of his work inside NeueHouse, an upscale co-working space.

    Doc, why didn’t you call a repairman for your dryer?

      First need to determine whether the problem is the electricity supply or the dryer itself. I suspect the former.

    It’s a beautiful morning, not hot, coolish and breezy. A good day to be walking around the zoo. I think storms are predicted for late afternoon, or evening.

    I’m ready to roll, sitting here waiting for Pete’s to pick me up. Can’t wait to see the dinosaurs. Can’t wait to see what kind of dinosaur knick-knacks and souvenirs they have this time. Last time I bought about 6 dinosaur skeletons. Never saw skeletons before. I have dinosaurs around here but they look real, I liked the museum kind, skeletons. I have them on the entertainment center on a shelf that holds a few books. Makes them look intelligent, lol.

    OK Doc, about that dryer, there are several things to check.
    The first thing is power to the dryer, check fuses/breakers to make sure they did not trip.
    Next would be to move the dryer away from the wall, check the power plug itself for overheated terminals. and check the vent for clogs and excessive lint, you will have to remove the hose from the dryer to check that, if there is no clog, move on to the exit point of the dryer duct outside the house to make sure it is clear and open. If there is any blockage preventing the dryer from exhausting, it will blow the thermal fuse meant to prevent an overheat condition. I think the lint filter on Kemore is in the lower part of the door opening, remove it and check for blockage with a flashlight.
    If your power is good and the exhaust hose and stuff is clean and flowing freely the next thing would be to check the door switch which most times can be located around the door, use a Bic pen and poke the switch and listen for a click when activated.
    If the exhaust duct is found to be clogged, the thermal fuse is probably blown. That involves removing the back from the dryer after disconnecting power. A 1/4″ or 5/16″ socket or nutdriver is needed to remove the back screws. Once the back is off locate the thermal fuse which looks like a flat white ceramic strip with two wires connected to it down near the exhaust vent on the metal duct leading to it. To test without a multimeter, remove both wires from the fuse and connect them together, wrap generous tape around them to keep them together, then plug the dryer in and push the button, if it starts now the fuse is bad and you can probably go online to replace it.
    DO NOT leave the wires connected and use the dryer however, no thermal protection!
    Try those things and if you can check this YouTube video
