How do you repair bathroom door knob?
First, you have to determine what type of knob it is. It maybe possible that it is cheaper and easier to replace it with a new one. You can buy a bedroom/bathroom knob for about $5. If you have an older door with the old latch style knob and lock, there is a brass plate that covers the section of door to be prepared for the new knob. I know I am not very descriptive with my answer, sorry. If you bring this question to a hardware store-they will show you these parts.

Why would there be no hot water coming from your shower?
There could be a lot of reasons. Hot water entry point clogged, hot water heater out, Hot water line broke or not hooked up. If this problem has only happened since the shower has been replaced or serviced, the chances are that there is a hot water safety that just needs to be adjusted. Take off the handle, look at the assembly, you should see a plastic sleeve or knob that can be turned. This knob stops that handle from turning past a certain point which restricts the flow of hot water.

How can you secure bath tub knobs so your toddler cannot take a bath on their own?
It depends what type of knobs you have in your bath tub. Go to a hardware store and they can give you some solutions to the problem. It's best to have a lock on your bathroom door (keep a spare key outside of the bathroom in case of accidents) as small children should never be around bathrooms in the first place. I know it's tough, but if you have one of those new deep tubs they put into bathrooms your child could well fall in and hurt themselves quite badly. I say the lock on the bathroom door is the best way to go if possible. Children climb and it's truly amazing (as I am sure you know) that they can climb like monkeys, so they could even climb on something and get to the sink and turn on the hot water. You can't put a pad lock on all the knobs in the bathroom. Answer I went overboard baby-proofing everything, but the only item that truly worked for all problems was the door knob covers that spin around the door knob (or faucet knob) if you have small toddler or preschooler hands. Even if the youngsters figure out they have to squeeze two spots of that cover at the same time, they can physically simply not do it. Maybe that works for you. A cheap fix is..........A hook and eye closure that is at the 5 foot level on the door to the bathroom, too far for the kid to reach, but easy for the adults to open. Keeps them out unless a adult is there to supervise them. Answer I found inflatable tub knob covers that suction cup to the wall. They work very nice and about $4.99. Here is what they look like, I only found them online. http:/www.safensoundkids.comtubknob1.jpg (you can get em from the same site the picture is on.) I also found the door knob covers helpful for into the bathroom. Answer. Take an old stadium cup that you don't care about (ie not your husband's Pink Floyd Concert one) and cut a hole in the bottom. Take the knob off the faucet, place the cup over the knob stem and then replace the knob. You then just squeeze the cup to turn on or turn the knob. I have to reach into the cup to press the knob in to shut the water off.
Why will a light not work on knob and tube wiring with 120V of power on meter?
According to www.wilberelectrical.com knob and tube wiring is no longer legal. You will need to replace it. Chances are, as knob and tube wiring is very, very old, something has broken or it has been disconnected as knob and tube is not very safe. I would recomment replacing it with modern wiring devices rather than trying to repair it.
How do you light a polite on hot water heater?
FIRST; read all, you should read the manual first,if you dont have one,you can find it online, just google the MFG of the water tank. If it is a state, just put state water heater in google. Then you can search for your manual, and so on for any MFG. on the top of the gas valve is a black knob, it should say- off,on,pilot. the knob could have an arrow or a dot, point the arrow or dot to pilot and press down on the knob,(you must have a match,long one or grill lighter ready to light pilot when you press down on the knob,as this will release gas for lighting ) hold the knob down for a minute after the pilot is light, this tells the thermocouple that there is flame present and to stay light. Most times there is a copper line running from the gas valve to the inside of the tank, at the end of this line is the pilot light,this is what you try to light. If you release the knob and the light goes out try it again and hold the knob down longer. After you release the knob and the pilot light stays lite, you now turn the knob to ON.
