Over sight from the teck. Most units are designed to drain off the side of the coach. If you do not want to take it back. Installation as your speaking of is the only solution. Other wise the unit is going to drain down the side of the coach.

I purchased two Artic King 10,000 BTU Air Conditioners. The base of the units on the exterior of the building build up with water up to about 1 deep when it rains or running. Why is there no drain?

If you look inside the exterior part you should see a copper tube(part of the refrigeration tubing) that rests horizontally under this water. The water cools the freon inside that copper tube. That's why some models don't have a drain there.

Water from fridge not going down plug hole into container. How ofter should the water container be emptied at the back of the fridge/freezer I have a sub zero frigerator #550 its about 15 years old....


Self-defrosting refrigerators dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle, usually via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates. .

If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan.You can use a hair dryer and remove the ice buildup

Air conditioner causing water inside front and rear of vehicle

on your airconditioning unit on the fire wall under the have a drain hose to let water out ..if that is plugged it will run inside the vehicle...but what causes this usually is low freon...134A..its the gas inside the lines....when ac is running..if its low it will freeze up in the AC condensors in the dash...turn white which is frost..if it gets frosty then it will melt thus causing water which in turn runs into the inside of the vehicle..that is if the drain tube hose is pluged...suggestions >> get under car and look for a tube..rubber...insert a wire or something up there to see if dirt comes this without car running...someplace on right side glove compartment area under car has to be a goes up and down vertically probably two feet long but you will only see the tip of the hose,,maybe a couple inches,,,only way to find it is get under and behind right front wheel and look upward .find it and make sure it isn't kinked or anything as such,,plugged...then try again...the cause is low freon 134A...stop and think,,,on a hot day when AC is running,,,you drive a bit and then come back out and there is water behind the right front wheel ,,,if that is have an open tube...but if water still inside during the puddling outside....then a loose or cracked housing which contains the unit...shouldn't be too hard to fix

Where is the drain?

There are grooves on both sides of ac unit on a camper and it drains down the roof to a little gutter that travels the water towards end of camper and drains. Most of the time down the side of camper, but if these Grove are stopped up it will not allow it to drain and cause it to overflow inside camper. If filter is very stopped up or evaporator coil is stopped up, fan not running, low on refrigerant, or having the thermostat set way to low can cause it to freeze up and when this water thaws out it is too much for the drain to handle and also ice could be sticking being the drain pan melting causing it to go in your camper. I would check filter and those drain grooves first.

I have a gold star hd30 dehumidifier. When it was draining into the bucket it was running properly. Recently I installed a hose at the back by inserting the plastic piece provided onto a black tube inside...

Quite possibly, Sara the hose drain tubing was not seated firmly. or the tubing running to the hose connection is partially clogged . When this happens water is diverted to the bucket.

To solve the clogging issue do the following:

Turn the unit OFF & Unplug it.

Remove the the tubing adapter and using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hose connection hole & tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reinstall the the tubing adapter and tubing, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor the drain tubing for water flow and leakage. It may take 10 minutes to start flowing, so be patient.

NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers

I hope this helps you to solve the problem and thanks for choosing FixYa.

The printer has only done about 500 prints. Black print is very faint in areas - it streaks. Changed toner - no change. Looked at green roll inside - can not see any dirt. Suggestions. How can I...

Hi, The faint print in a laser printer can be caused by several things. If the contrast is set too low or the toner level in the cartridge is low, empty or poorly distributed, print quality can appear washed out. Correcting this is easy. Adjust the contrast remove the toner cartridge, inspect it, shake it gently(if in a sealed unit) and retry it. if it doesnt improve try a new cartridge. Other causes of this problem maybe a weakened corona wire, a weakened high-voltage power supply that drives it. Replace the unit that drives the corona wire. Replace the high voltage power supply(get a pro to do this as this can be hazardous). Make sure the latent high voltages have been drained off the power supply before working with it

Water buildup in fridge

Same problem ...same fridge, different serial though.

Drain tube is blocked, but you'll have to take off the back panel inside the freezer, and look at where the drain tube is (usually centre).
the plastic/surrounding opening of the drain tube in our case was starting to rust out, allowing the leak to persist.
special silicon sealant worked for about 1.5 years, but the insert that is inside the freezer should be replaced.

no you can't get an insert they're not available

Where is the drain pan on my central a/c/? It drains inside my air vents.

most central a/c units have a drain that either goes into the house drain system or they have a pump with a float activated switch to pump water out once full. to identify you must find your air handler ( the unit that blows air into the house) remove the lower panel and look for one of the foremantioned drain systems. could be a simple mold problem, mold tends to build in the drain tubes because the flow of water is relatively low.

I purchased a LG Dehumidifier MODEL LHD45EL and I followed instructions to attach a hose to it for the drain. I removed the drain hole cover and I don't see a drain hole connector or a hole to install it...

Remove the drain bucket. on the top there are two pieces that can be removed just by taking them out. they are just laying in there. 1 is the brush the other is the "drain tube insert" it is a plastic tube and has a threaded fitting on one end. take your garden hose with a female connector on one end just like you were going to install on your spicket outside of your house and connect it to the threaded end of the "drain tube insert" make sure you knockout the round plastic drain plug cover hole located in the back of the unit (it is behind where your power cord was stored) it has three tabs to break. remove drain bucket. take the drain tube with hose attatched and insert it into the drain plug hole in the back and attach it onto the drain outlet (the drain outlet is inside the drain bucket side at the top it looks like an elbow fitting) push the tube so that the flap with the arrow is flush with the back. once you get the "drain tube insert" almost all the way flush with the back -->if you look inside the drain bucket side you will see where it fits over the drain outlet
