Why does my delonghi PAC AN125hPEC run for a while then stops because the tray is full of water?


Try draining the tray. If that does not change the short cycle, it depends on how hand you are. Next would be to take off 2 sides and back and inspect the float system, (same idea a toilet flush) when styrofoam float hits top, switch shuts off the compressor or ac or dehumidifier to prevent water spilling onto floor.

Where can I get part #4087 float assembly for Aprilaire humidifier model445?


You can\'t. The part has been discontinued. No one has it.



I wasn\'t willing to buy a whole new humidifier, so if you\'re willing to do a little more work, you can do what I did. I substituted a Kerick MA252 Mini PVC float valve. This isn\'t a direct replacement, the float and float arm that come with it are a little too long to fit. You take off the float and float arm and use the original float and float arm. The bolt on the new valve is too big, so you need to provide a bolt that won\'t rust (brass, stainless, teflon, etc.) to connect it. You\'ll have to play with the position of the float arm to set the proper water level. You\'ll also need the square plate off the original float valve to provide a flat mounting surface for the new float valve. You\'ll need to ream out the hole in the plate and the mounting hole to make them round. The tubing inlet on the MA252 works great, but you\'ll have to enlarge the opening on the cover to accommodate the tubing inlet.



The MA252 is made of PVC and stainless steel, so it shouldn\'t corrode away the way the OEM valve did. And better yet, the MA252 costs less than $10 (I got mine on Amazon) where the OEM valve would have cost more than $50 if you could get one.

The 25 pint Frigidaire dehumidifer has stopped running and continues to show the "full flashing red light" even when it isn't, and will not stay on. Any solutions? Thanks Kirk J.


Kirk, the problem you're experiencing is generally caused by 2 reasons. The bucket was not reinstalled properly or the float valve in the top of the tank is either broken or stuck in the UP position.

First turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Then remove the bucket and check the float valve in the top of the bucket. Jiggle the float valve's arm to make sure it moves freely and that it is in the DOWN position. If it's not broken, reinstall the bucket making sure that it fits "squarely" from top to bottom and is making contact with the bucket safety removal switch on the rear wall of the bucket holder. When installed properly, the bottom of the bucket should not tilt down at all.

If the float valve is broken, you can purchase new one from Frigidaire.

I hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My meter states there are intermitent leaks,i have had new plumbing in over a year and fixtures everything,i had two plumbers come check my whole house,no leaks. i got a bill for 678 dollars, says i used...


You may have a break in the water line between the street and your home. Last year I had a duplex that had a leaking water main and the water followed alongside the sewer line right out the back of the property, while never giving indication that there was a leak. You could have a leak locator come out to check lines. Also Check your flappers and handles in the toilet first as well the fill valves (if the water is going over the top of the fill tube in the toilet tank then adjust them or replace). As a last thought I saw a video recently of a cat which continuously flushed the toilet. This may sound bizarre but things like this happen.

My water heater won't circulate water. i think it is clogged with calcium


One thing you might try is to shut off power or turn gas valve to pilot,as you didn't say if it was gas or electric. Hook up garden hose to drain valve and run hose to floor drain or sump basin. Shut off water supply valve to heater. Open drain valve and if you get a decent flow then let it drain tank about half way. If flow rate drops drastically then open hot side on faucet nearby to break vacumn.When you think tank is about halfway drained then shut off faucet if you opened one and close drain valve. Turn water supply valve back on and let tank refill. When it is full leave supply valve on and open drain valve and let water flush thru system for several mins. Close drain valve and run water on both hot and cold side of faucets fartherest away from heater as possible. Close this faucet
Turn tharmostat up as high as it will go and let heater run till it shuts off then return thermostat to original setting. Go through the drain and flush procedure a couple more times and this shold help break mineral deposits loose and flush them out. This should make for more efficeint operation and help prolong the tank life. Hope this helps you. Have a good new year and thank you.

I have a Mastercool II airconditioner, which is approximately 5 - 7 yrs old. Water has been overflowig from the unit. I believe the float probably needs to be replaced. I have no experience working with...


What you have is an evaporative cooler, it should be serviced every year, but most people can't afford that so they let it go or do it themselves. I don't know if you have ever worked on a toilet before , but your cooler has a float very similar to one in a toilet. More times than not you just need to adjust the float by bending the arm ever so slightly until the water shuts off on it's own. You don't want to bend it too far, it won't get enough water. If this doesn't do the trick you need to get an evaporative cooler float from your local hardware store, they can best tell you how to change it because you will have it visually in hand. Good luck

Water is leaking from my downstairs air conditioning vent


I seriously doubt it's the AC. It may be the draing in the upstairs shower, If it's a water line it is a very small leak and is probably puddling in you ceiling. if not nbeing absorbed. Best thing is contact your homeowners insurance because you are going to not only have a plumber to deal with , but a mols issue as well. Sorry, good luck.

How to take apart case and back flush heat exchange fins


You do not have to remove the coils. Just carefully lift the top with the motor and set it aside (power off). Spray the outside with a foaming cleaner (Dow bathroom) and flush from inside out.
