Air conditioning help

I have an LG window air conditioner..Water does not drain properly and builds up. My husband has to hold it tilted for almost an hour to drain water. How can I keep this from happening, or position it better in the window so it does not happen again..

Thank you

The A/C unit should be tilted back a little for proper dranage.
Also the drain line may be plugged. These are sometimes hard to find. The unit has to be taken apart to look inside behind the evap coil. Where the line comes through into the rear part of the cabinet. This can the be cleared with a straghtened coat hanger. lightly push the hanger into the drain line and clear debree. water will rush out if the line is blocked.

Why do i keep hearing a pop pop noise

Hi, Anonymous popping or backfiring on deceleration is usually caused by a lean fuel condition or an air leak in the exhaust system and is generally located where black carbon soot is seen as a flashing build up from any joint connection. This condition can easily be remedied by removing and cleaning both joint pieces and reassembling with high temp silicone and torquing the exhaust clamp to the proper spec. Coughing is usually caused by an air leak in the intake system and will generally have the same telltale signs, a wet or damp buildup of oil/gas seepage at the intake manifold to cylinder head or carburetor to intake manifold connection and in rare instances a worn throttle plate shaft and or seals. Spitting is usually caused by a faulty accelerator pump and or nozzle, or the float bowl needle and seat leaking and overflowing through the main jet mixing well nozzle, or the air-fuel mixture screw is adjusted too lean.

I have a 03 Honda spirit 750 --was riding yesterday when it started spiting/sputtering like it was out of fuel, I checked fuel(half tank) I put another gallon in just to be sure but no luck. Also tried...

Drain the carbs. Water condensation in the gas tank makes it's way into the carb float bowl. After a while the water builds up enough to replace gas in the carbs. Bikes don't run well on water. If that doesn't work at least no money has been spent. Next, stick in fresh spark plugs and be sure the air filter is clean.

Hello ive recantly replaced my pistons and rings on my dt 125. i have been told it was the pistons that was stopping my bike from running, but now that i have changed them my bike will still not start. can...

The first thing to do is get a new stock spark plug. Hook up the plug wire then have someone kick the lever while you hold the metal side of the plug against the bare metal cylinder head looking for spark while the starter is being kicked. If no spark is seen, find out why. Use a meter to check the handlebar and side stand switches for proper operation. How good is the battery? Are there any wires abraded or disconnected? Has the pulse generator, coil or CDI gone bad?
If spark is present, Be sure the air cleaner is clean. A dirty filter restricts the air the carb needs. Okay, you have spark and you have air, now you need gas. Start by draining the carb. Condensation from the gas tank can get into the carb float bowl and build to the point the carb is feeding only water into the engine. Engines don't run well on water. When starting the bike, do not go nuts with the throttle. Every twist on the throttle sends a shot of gas into the engine. Too many twists can flood the engine. Your bike is water cooled. Good gaskets/seals are needed on the cylinder and head. At this point we will assume the coolant system is not leaking.

How much coolant does the bike hold?i drained the coolant from the water pump

Even the bigger bikes only hold between two and four quarts. If you have one gallon of antifreeze you will have enough to do a complete change. If you buy concentrated antifreeze only use distilled water to dilute it. Tap water will add unwanted minerals that could cause deposits in the motor and radiator. Most motorcycle water pumps use a ceramic washer so they only recommend you use a NON-SILICA formula anti-freeze (any motorcycle manufacturers antifreeze, Gm Dexcool, etc.). 50/50 mix should be right for all riding conditions. If you have enough coolant for the engine but not the over flow bottle reuse some of the old anti freeze in the over flow bottle.

check fluid levels, could be your thermostat or water pump. check oil. its probably your water pump or thermostat...could be blocked radiator. For bikes they have this ICE coolant you can get at a motorcycle and atv shop, it might help :) fix these problems before you keep riding or you are going to blow a ghead gasket, SPENDY :)

Fazer 400 wont start and when it does i have to hold the throttle open full and it will slowly build up to full rev?

At the bottom of the carbs is a bolt.Its a 17mm I think.Turn the fuel off.Take the bolt off and let it drain.Bolt back in..It sounds like you have water in the fuel.With 5 gallons of fuel its 1000 mls of metholated spirits.Do the drain twice.Hope this helps

ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher at hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. If the problem is still there, the float height needs to be reset. If possible take the carb to a dealer and let them put a float gage to it. Probably cost $15 but call and ask before you take the carb in.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Motorcycles wont start

Your bike needs 4 things to run-Fuel, Spark, Air and Compression. One or some of these are missing.

1) Crank engine over several times to start. Remove spark plug. If plug is wet and smells like gas then it is getting fuel.

2) Check for spark
Put spark plug back into spark plug cap and lay spark end along side bolt or part of unpainted head making contact and crank over engine as if to start. If no spark then is electrical problem. Try changing spark plug. Check grounds. If not plug or grounds then purchase a shop manual from your local dealer and ohms test all electeical componet resistances as shop manual instructs. Be sure components do not meet specks before purchasing.

3) If has spark and plug was wet upon removal then gas has water or just old gas. If you drained the carb via bottom of carb screw into a clean clear container and see stuff at the bottom then carb is dirty with water and or dirt.

If your bike has been sitting along time condensation will build explaining water and or gas will loose its kick after sitting too long. If you think it has been sitting a long time it is best to dispose of old gas and refill with new. Water can also get into tank from gas can when fully tipped upright so dont dump every last drop into the tank...most ofter the last couple of cups are water.

If bike has been sitting for a few days and was running fine before that, turn off gas, drain carb via bottom of carb screw, close off screw and turn gas back on. This will refresh the gas in carb.

If none of these are the case and you have good fuel, good spark...check air filter for air flow. If all this is good then you need to do a compression check. A simple way to do it is to stick your finger in the spark plug hole and hold it in there with some force and have a friend try to start the bike. If it blows your finger out then it has compression. If it doesnt want to force your finger out then you have no compression and is a piston and ring problem. The only way to test compression for sure it to purchase a compression tester from auto parts store that has an adapter for your size plug hole and do a proper test. I hope this helps.
