Disconnected condensation drain on hot water heater.


Tankless or hybrid water heater?

Tankless gas must have special fitting between water heater and vent that has a condensate line fitting. Hot toxic vent gasses traveling up vent pipe cause acidic water vapor to form inside vent pipe that drips back down vent and drips onto heat exchanger and other parts eventually burning hole through expensive metal alloy heat exchanger, rendering tankless computer water heater useless after electric circuitry gets wet and shorts out.

Hybrid or heat pump type computer water heaters must have condensate drain connected to catch pan located just above storage tank and below compressor. Condensation can form on condenser coils and drip into catch pan where there is primary and secondary drain

My amana window ac is blowing condesation out the vents. it is still cooling..is this a problem


There is a condensation drain on the unit that is probably plugged. It is natural for air conditioning units to produce condensation as the evaporator coil (the coil/fins that make the air cold as a fan blows air across it ) is much colder than the outside air temperature ( usually between 38 and 55 degrees depending on the unit ). There is a basin or tray at the bottom of the unit that catches the condensation as it drips off the evaporator coil, and there is a drain that allows the water to drain form the unit. If this becomes plugged the water will build up and eventually drip out of the vents of the unit. http://www.air-conditioning-and-refrigeration-guide.com/air-conditioning-circuit-and-cycle-diagram.html
In the image, air is blown across the coil in the bottom left section of the picture ( this is the "cold' coil). Condensation can form on this.

I have a Intertherm Heat Pump system in my Manufactured Home, Model # E2EB-015HB; Serial # E2E0121006692. Condensation is forming on the Coils and the water fills up the area under the coils, drips down...


There is a drip pan bit the middle is open to allow air flow through the coil and into your ducting. If the drain for the drip pan is clogged it will fill up and overflow onto your furnace and then to the floor.If that is what is happening then clean out the drain tube running down the front of the furnace and it should empty the drip pan and solve your problem.

You also need to have your furnace checked for water damage in the electrical components, if these have gotten wet then you run the risk of a fire. Please consider calling an expert in your area to inspect your furnace and make sure the drain line is clear.

My new Kenmore Elite panel ready dishwasher leaves wet


You need only enough space so the door does not rub when opened. If the unit is too far back under the cabinet the countertop (if wood) can be damaged by the exhausting moisture. The dry feature on the newer models is just as you describe. The moisture from the hotter dishes evaporates and is condensed on the cooler walls and door of the wash tub. Dry dishes wet tub is normal.

Water dripping from underneath


The water is most likely coming from the condensation that's drained out of the refrigerator during the automatic defrost cycle.

Be sure the bottom fan is running and clean out the condensation tray. Warm air pulled across the condenser coils is supposed to evaporate the condensate water. If the fan is not running when the refrigerator cycles on, replace it. This would also result in the refrigerator running excessively without cycling off.

While you're working under the unit, be sure to clean off the coils too.

Good luck. Hope this was helpful.

1 yr old lg dishwasher model# ldf6810st LEAK/CONDENSATION


Hi,
I have the same problem in my machine, and it seems to be a design problem from LG. They changed the blower and ducts in Dec/2007 for "improved drying performance". I found it in their most recent Service Manual. It seems there is a repair kit that can be installed on models older than Dec/2007, but I am not sure under what circumstances (warranty claims maybe). As I live overseas (there is no LG warranty for dishwashers in my country), I just keep a piece of cloth there to absorb the moist. Sorry.

1 yr old lg dishwasher model# ldf6810st LEAK/CONDENSATION


TOO ALL SAMSUNG LDF AND POSSIBLE OTHER LG DISWASHER USERS:
LG NEGLECTED MY CALLS TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM. THE DRIPPING PROBLEM FROM THE CORNERS OCCURS:
1- VENT ASSEMBLY FOR HOT AIR BLOWER SEAL LEAKS: EASY TO FIX JUST USE A GOOD QUALITY CAULK AROUND THE SEAM. YOU WILL HAVE TO DISMANTLE THE BLOWER ASSEMBLY WHIXH IS FAIRLY EASY.
2- THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: LG HAS A DESIGN FAULT. WHEN THE DISHWASHER FILLS WATER AND STARTS PUMPING TO SPRAYS THE AIR INSIDE THE DW HAS NO WHERE TO GO THEREFORE THE WATER WAS PUSHED UNDER THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR GASKETS (THE ONE ATTACHED TO THE DOOR BOTTOM, NOT THE ONE AROUND THE MAIN CABIN). SO AIR WITH WATER PUFFS OUT OF THE PAN HITS THE DOOR AND LEAKS DOWN. THE SOLUTION IS TO LET THE AIR OUT SOMEHOW. YOU MUST TRY TO PUSH-IN THE DOOR GASKET WHICH IS SEALING LEFT/RIGHT/TOP PART OF THE CABIN AND THE DOOR. IF YOU PUSH TOO MUCH THE WATER MAY LEAK FROM THE SEALS SO BE CAREFUL NOT TOO PUSH TOO MUCH. BASICALLY TRIAL AND ERROR. YOU CAN DO THAT AFTER YOU REMOVE THE DOOR COVER. THE LEAKAGE OCCURS IN THE BEGINNING OF THE CYE SO IT IS FAIRLY EASY TO TRY. IF THAT IS NOT A SUCCESS THEY DROP OF CAULK ON THE ONE OF THE DOOR EDGE TO PUSH THE GASKET SO THAT THE DOOR PUSHES IN THE GASKET TO ALLOW AIR OUT RIGHT AROUND THE CAULK. NORMALLY DISHWASHERS HAVE AN ELECTRICALLY ACTUATED OUTLET TO LET THE AIR OUT. THEY JUST WANTED TO SAVE COST AND HAVE US DEAL WITH THIS RIDICULOUS PROBLEM.

Door leaks


This dishwasher has a vent at the bottom left of the door that blows out hot moist air during the drying cycle. Are you sure that you are not getting condensation build up from this vented air that is dripping on your floor?

 during Cooling and Dry modes, if the unit is used under conditions of
lower temperature (18C)  the heat-exchanger may freeze, leading to water leakage and other damage.
If the unit is used for long periods under high-humidity conditions, condensation may form on the surface of the indoor
unit, and drip onto the floor or other objects underneath. (About 80% or more)



Increase Temp to 20 and also run coil dry cycle,
