Debit cards function similarly to credit cards except that debit cards allow you to withdraw funds directly from a checking account. In other words, when you use a debit card you are spending money you have already earned. Responsible debit card use can help you avoid fees and dangers that may end up costing you money.
Check Your Account Balance Regularly
Since debit cards draw money from a checking account, you can only draw as much money as you have in your account. Overdrawing your checking account may result in fees from your bank. Many banks allow users to check account balances online, which can make it easy to keep tabs on how much money you have to spend. Some accounts also offer overdraft protection to protect you from fees if you happen to draw more than your balance.
Cancel Lost Cards Immediately
Debit cards and credit cards are easy to misplace. If you lose your debit card, call your bank and cancel the card as soon as possible. Unlike credit cards, it may be difficult to recoup fraudulent debit card charges because money is withdrawn directly from your checking account. For this reason, consider using a credit card instead of a debit card for normal use and online purchases and then use your debit card to pay off the credit card.
I have a GE stove, and the burner light stays on when none of the burners are actually on. Does anyone know what is wrong?
This means that one of the switches is bad. The problem is finding which one is bad. First, disconnect power from stove then remove the back cover to so that you can see the back of the switches. Make sure all the switches are in the off position. On the back of each switch there should be a wire marked P, remove that wire from one of the switches. Be sure the wire isn’t touching anything!!! Reconnect power, if the light is off when you reconnect power that is the bad switch. If not disconnect power again and reconnect the wire, then do the same to the next switch. Repeat this until you find the bad switch. Please be careful because these wires are hot when the power is connected!!
Whether you need additional lighting in your shower, over your favorite chair or anywhere in your home, you can do your own electric light installation and install light switches to power your new light. Adding a recessed light to your ceiling is a contemporary way to shine a little extra light in your room. Electric switch installation makes it easy to operate your new light, because all you have to do is flip the switch at the wall to turn on your electric light. Does this Spark an idea?
Things You'll Need
Electric outdoor lights are fantastic for big areas at night, but consequently draw enormous amounts of power from the grid they’re tied into. Instead, why not convert your outdoor light to solar power? It will run the way it always has, but on the power of the sun alone instead of costly and environmentally damaging coal.
Luckily, the advent of hobby solar electronics means the parts and tools needed to accomplish this task are both easy to find and relatively cheap.
Things You'll Need
Solar panel (commensurate with your light’s needs)
Rechargeable battery pack
Soldering iron and solder
Weatherproof enclosure and mounting hardware

Identifying the problem
Inspect the faulty element to determine whether it plugs into a receptacle, as most do, or is wired directly. If it plugs in, move on to step 2. It the element is direct-wired, move on to step 4.
