SOURCE: leaking water

If it leaks water on the cool mode then the condensate pan or drain system is not working properly. Its plugged up or something. It is normal for the evaporator to make water (condensation) only usually the drainage system takes it out so you don't notice. But it is safe to keep using, just you will have to deal with the water problem.

Typical H2O heater with 4500 watt elements should draw around 18 amps. Check to make sure the connections for the wires at the breaker are tight, loose connections will cause the breaker to heat up. If all of this is good and the breaker is still heating up, it is time for a new breaker.

1. Do not set the aircon too low temperature in overcast weather, this will cause ice ups and water dripping. Optimal comfort zone temperature is 24c.
2. You need to open the grill cover on the front of the aircon which unclips either end left and right with a finger pressure. You will find two filters which can slide out and should be cleaned. First tap them together to remove dust, then you can wash them with mild soap and cold water.
3. There is the third possibility that an insect has made a nest in the drainpipe. You should look on the outside of the building and locate a plastic drainpipe. You can either blow into this pipe with your mouth or get a blower. This will unblock any restriction in the drainpipe.
Goodluck and ratemeplease.

SOURCE: Water Leak from the hole where drain valve is attached

Time for a new water heater, it's leaking there because that's where it can get out - tank shot - not repairable. (Unless it's actually leaking out of the drain valve(which can be threaded out and replaced) but that would only leak if someone has tried to open it.)

Pushing the pin you see back down opens the safety baffle and turns your smartshield heater into any old heater (that is, no smartshield). If you want, find a way to hold that pin down (remember it gets hot in there), put it all back together, and get on with your life.

I have carrier heat and air model numbers 58sx and 38tg what sizes are these

You need more information to get the size. The Carrier 58sx series includes 5 different models: 40 - 41000 BTUH, 60 - 61000 BTUH, 80 - 81000BTUH, 100 - 102000 BTUH, 120 - 122000BTUH. An installation guide for the 58sx is available here: . The Carrier 38tg has 6 different sizes (020 - 20,000BTUH through 050 - 50,000BTUH). The other sizes are 025, 030, 035, 040 and the capacity is that number multiplied by 1000.)

To determine your model's capacity, look at the full product number. The first three numbers after the 58sx or 38tg will indicate the nominal capacity.

I hope this helps.

I have a problem with my Ruud LP heater. The gas valve is model VR8440M2024. Does anyone know what the M2024 means? I have found VR8440 valves on line but don't know if they will work with my unit....

The Robertshaw 720-079 is a universal type replacement valve. It comes with an LP conversion kit. You will probably come out better off using this than trying to locate the OEM part.

I think that your water heater was made in 1991 so it would be 20 years old. This is not uncommon for a electric heater but you are probably right about it being on it's last legs. The good news is that a electric water heater for use in a manufactured home is no different then other building types so they are not more expensive. Gas water heaters for manufactured homes cost anywhere between 150.00-200.00 more than standard. Thank you.

I would like to convert my water heater and boiler system to natural gas

If you are using LP, you will have to change the orfices and spring in the gas valve. The problem is, if the boiler is over 5yrs. old you will have a real hard time finding these parts. You could
probably change the gas valve, but probably no luck on the
burner orfices.

With the Water heater, it is probably cheaper to replace the water heater.

Gas water heater keeps keeps lighting and shutting off has electric start its a 40 gal rudd model pvp40e

You did not mention if your water ever gets up to temperature or not. If this is happening more than once per hour, you have a bad thermostat (SP11652B or SP10886B or SP11652C or SP10886C all depends on year and gas type) and it will have to be replaced. It could also be a bad pressure/vacuum switch PN# SP11875. Try and tap on the side of the thermostat to see if it stops.

How do I find out the age of my hot water heater tank? 40 gallon propane model # BFG1F4034T3PV Whirlpool Hot Water Heater

Quickest way is to call Whirlpool, give the serial # and they can give you the Manufacture date. Sometimes its on the Information tag. But most of the time it's in the serial number in code.

Gas furnace


And correct You can addapt SOME burners to LP. Check with MFG to be sure. SOme Burners are dedicated to 1 fuel only IE LP only or NG only.

The LP has no regulator needed at the appliance it is regulated at the tank regulator, or on some 2 stage systems at the inlet to the building.

11" - 13" water column is the range for LP

If you cant find any MFG to answer your question take the name off the GAS valve you use and any model number on the gas valve and attempt to inquire form those numbers as to availability of lp change over. IF YOU DONT FIND ANY MFG OR INSTRUCTION MY ADVISE IS EITHER REPLACE THE VALVE WITH ONE THAT YOU KNOW IS APPROVED. A safety warning here is worth all the money because you cant save enough on the price of a new heater to replace any body and very few houses. Keep in mind that the spuds or orfices have to be changed also and some burners require reset of the Combustion Air inlet.
