A motion-sensing toilet that lifts the seat and flushes was just what was needed for the Magladry family of Voorhees - two parents and four kids younger than 9. Installed eight months ago, its incorporated night-light was especially appreciated by mom Heather when she was pregnant. "None of my boys remember to flush the potty - ever, it seems - so that's one of the nice things," she said. Most smart toilets ($3,000- $5,000) come from Japan and require their own electrical outlet.

Q uestion: I have a Maytag side-by-side refrigerator. The water dispenser is not dispensing. It starts dispensing and ends up a trickle. The ice maker is producing thin ice cubes. I had tried to replace the water inlet valve in the appliance, but that did no good. The water line does not seem to be blocked. When I take off the filter, which I replaced in June, and press the water dispenser, no water comes out the filter head. Answer: There 's a good reason why I was passed over for the role of Maytag repairman in 2007, but I will suggest two things.

1 The quoted repair cost is at least half the price of a replacement, Consumer Reports says. Tellingly, the publication only insists on repairs as "first option" on refrigerators less than 7 years old. 2 The motor is running continuously, a sign that the seals aren't holding or the compressor can't make the compartment cold enough. 3 The food isn't staying fresh, or frozen foods feel mushy even after the temperature setting is lowered. Ideally, a fridge should hold at 0 degrees in the freezer, 37 in the refrigerator.

Regina Blaszczyk went back to school to become a design historian while working as a junior curator at the Smithsonian in the 1980s. She noted that a lot of scholars were examining material life in the 18th and 19th centuries but few were focused on the 20th century. She decided to specialize in the recent past, specifically on aspects of everyday consumer culture - she's written on the rise of auto shows, Wanamaker's gilded age, and the increasing use of synthetic fibers in interior design-that shed light on our cultural traditions.

Q: How can I post artwork, schedules and pictures on my stainless-steel refrigerator, since it is not magnetized? A: The smooth, bare expanse of a gleaming new stainless steel refrigerator looks clean and modern, and works in nearly any kitchen. The material, an alloy of steel designed to resist corrosion, may contain additional elements to increase its strength and resiliency. But these added elements can also cancel out steel's magnetic properties, making it impossible for you to personalize it with your photos and kids' art projects.

Problems with the refrigeration system at the long-anticipated, much-touted Philadelphia Wholesale Produce Market are forcing a one-month delay in opening the facility on Essington Avenue in Southwest Philadelphia, spokeswoman Mia DeFino said Thursday. Vendors were told March 31 to expect to remain at the old location, on Galloway Street in South Philadelphia, until May 1, said David Levin, whose company, M. Levin & Co., has been in the produce business for 105 years. Built with $218 million in private and public funding, the market was dubbed "the world's largest refrigerator" at a ribbon-cutting ceremony March 25. Trucks coming in from the Port of Philadelphia would be able to back into docking doors and unload without breaking the "cold chain," ensuring that the produce would stay fresh longer.

Highly motivated, Gene doesn't want to be shackled to cholesterol-lowering drugs for life and would prefer to shed those excess pounds. That's why he and his family - wife Karen, 10-year-old daughter Haley, and 8-year-old son Luke - courageously agreed to let me raid their refrigerator, eliminating the diet-busting foods hiding there. Already a fitness buff, Gene plays gym hockey in a competitive league, so he has good cardiovascular endurance. The entire Fatula clan trains and studies karate.
