Re: Something's different...

There is a recent blog section on front page which is repetitive, serves no purpose, if the team can replace it with recent threads that would be great.

Re: Air conditioner unit making annoying bubbling noise

Bubbling sound is usually due to leak (Low refrigerant) , before sealing the leak, vacuuming the cooper pipes (this is important) is required.

It is not supposed to make a difference but did you get a crossover cable by mistake?
