Not sure this is the forum you want to pose your question to but from what you've described, it sounds like you may have an air pocket in the second floor radiators that needs to be bled off. Hope that steers you in the right direction.. Good Luck

Unit is leaking water from somewhere


Upper drip pan drains clogged, water overflowing onto the floor.

Remove the rear cover of the unit and clean it thoroughly wit a vacuum. Let the unit fully defrost. Use a can of Air duster (for pc's) with the little hose on to clear the drain holes in the upper drip tray. Clean dirty evaporator fins with windex and toothbrush, flush with water. Excess condensate should now drain into the bottom tank instead of overflowing ontot he ground. Be sure to drain the bottom tank thoroughly. With the unit cleaned it should now vent condensate out the warm air duct rather than letting it build up in the unit.

I own 2 Haier air conditioners. Same model number, purchased at the same time. Plugged them in yesterday and one is collecting water in the bottom and shuts off. The only way to get it to come back on is...


Condensation occurs when warm, humid air is pulled across a cold fins of an air conditioner and blown out the front as cool, dry air.

What is happening with your air conditioner sounds to be normal operation - here's why:

The condensate usually drips onto the ground from traditional window air conditioner units or through a pipe to the ground from remote air handlers of split systems. Since yours has no place to drain away into soil or waste pipe, it is collected in a compartment that must be emptied, just like a dehumidifier. When the compartment is full, the unit shuts off - otherwise the compartment would overflow on the the flooring or carpet. This could be a very expensive repair if hardwood floors were damaged or carpeting were to become moldy. Even more so if the the space under yours were finished - like an apartment building or if you used this on the second floor of your home - and damage to the ceiling below were damaged.

You could operate the device if it were connected by a hose to a drain at or below the bottom of the connection point (a floor drain, shower drain, etc.) or if the unit were placed on a counter top and allowed to drain into a sink or other drain / waste pipe below the the hose connection point. The hose must not get higher than the connection point at the drain plug on the air conditioner to work properly.

I hope this helps and good luck.

The boiler wont fire up and the blue light flashes once per second


Let's see what we can do to trouble-shoot this boiler--

First of all-- Are we talking about a Hot Water 'Boiler'-- In other words does this boiler heat water that circulates thru the house, to keep you warm?

Next-- What is your fuel?

Have you Shut the system down, to reset it?-- What happens when it comes back on again?-- Clicking sounds-- pumps trying to start-- solenoids trying to open, etc.-- Tell us what you observe-- so we can help you trouble shoot this problem.

My hot water heater has no hot water after the faucets were sputtering out acting like there was air in the pipes. The hot water pipe coming out of the heat is not hot but warm.


DID YOU CHECK THE THERMOSTAT ON THE WATER HEATER? FLUSH OUT THE SEDIMENT AT THE BOTTOM SEE IF THAT HELPS.. MAY NEED A NEW THERMOCOUPLER!!! GOOD LUCK

Fills with water, doesn't evaporate. Leaks. HAIER HPR09XC7


There is nothing to resolve. Your humidifier is working properly.

A humidifier works by condensing water out of air. This is the job of the cold coil, which you have found to have water dripping off. The Warm coil is not intended to re-evaporate the water, as this would just bring the relative humidity back to the origanal high level, rather, the warm coil is used to re-warm the air, going back into the room so the room does not get too cold. It is normal to have to empty the bucket and restart the process on a periodic basis.

Is there a connection between a warm floor and a water heater?


Is the floor warm just in certain spots or all over. If just in a certain spot you may have a hot water line leaking in floor.

I have a GE Hot water heater which is about 1 1/2 yrs old. 3 days ago the overflow valve started spewing water. I cut off the cold water and about 2 hrs later everything was fine. Now again the same...


The overflow valve as you termed it is operated by two factors. Temperature which would mean that the Bottom thermostat may be malfunctioning. Pressure which is not as likely, Lifts at about 150 PSI. Check water temperature. If the temperature is to high the problem is with the setting or the themostatic control may need to be replaced.

When you draw hot water the top thermostat takes control and cuts power to the lower thermostat. When the top thermostat is satisfied the control is changed to the bottom thermostat. The contacts on the bottom thermaostat could be welded together.
