Thanks for your help: you answered my questions. Do you know if I can print out your reply for my records, if I accept (pay for) your response, or do I need to make a note of what you told me? (This if my first time to use this service.) Also, would you have anyway to know if $1, 000 is reasonable for this type of repair (Chicago area) if it does break? And for my very last question, how would I know if broke or needed repair??? Thanks!!
