Hi all,

I think we have a bad refrigerator here, possibly problems also compounded
by an inadequate elex cicsuit. Elex is owned & paid by landlord, who thinks
this is "no big deal" & "happens all the time No problem."

Maintence is not this building owner's favorite occupation. Person is on a
tight budget just like most of the rest of the world.

Proibem:
Lights go dim whenever dying refrigerator comes on. This unit rins apprix 40
minutes per every hour, even on cool days with minimum opening/closing.

I am concerned about longevity and function of my computers. power supplies,
modem and router (I own these & they are nice). One printer already fried
when Handyman shorted hot and cold elex together in the process of replacing
one light swich in kitchen. Hope never to see him again, he's not a bright
bulb.

Is there some way to monitor the currrent on the elex line for several days
and record what's going on? If so, does someone have a monitoring device
that could be loaned and set up to do this?

I am in Woircester near Elm Park, & am a very good cook. Have decent chairs
& workspace with fast internet... could provide free beer & P1zzA or lunch
if needed during setup period.

Thanks mightily,
Liz J
