    Survival Whistle from a Soup Can

    Cliffystones. My brothers and I did that too. I had forgotten till I saw this instructable.

    I like this idea and, like Cliffystones, it reminded me of the whistles we used to make with pallet straps. My brothers also taught me how to use a blade of grass pinched between your thumbs to act as a reed for a whistle.

    Put Your CatGenie in "Tech Mode"

    Error 4 Fix. I have a 3 yr old CG, no longer under warranty. It stopped running with an error 4--air vent blocked or other malfunction. After following the instructions in the manual, it still wouldn't run. I left it unplugged overnight to cool off, but that did not fix it. I called customer service and after describing the issue I was told that I would need to ship the unit to them for repair, $90 + shipping. Maybe $120 total. Since I am a handyman, I decided to try to fix it myself and was successful. The problem was a thick layer of dust on the fan motor. Here is how I fixed it: 1) Disconnect power. 2) Turn off water and disconnect hose from back of unit. 3) Lift processing unit out and lay on work surface. 4) Remove the four Phillips screws holding the back cover.

(One is covered by a seal that voids your warranty if broken.) A long shaft screwdriver is needed for three of the screws. 5) Lift the back cover off. 6) Clean dust. I used a vacuum cleaner with brush attachment. 7) Re-assemble.
