    What type of air con is it? Is it a evaporator cooler by any chance?

    That's very odd. Do you have a humidifier associated with it? If so it may have a stuck float value. Is it a gas unit? If the answer to both questions is "no" then it can't pull water out of the air to cause an overflow unless its actually chilling the air.

Hi! Pal
If this is a window unit you may want to make sure the unit is tilted so the outside is lower then the widow sill. Also, check the condenser as this will get plugged if a lot of flowering trees are near by.
Good luck, InMrFixIt

If your air conditioner is overflowing with water
1. Check the drain at the base of the unit.
2. Check the drain hose post drain hole.
AC's condensate and create water and have to drain. If drain is clogged, they flood

You need to check the water pressure and flow through the unit. It sounds like you dont have enough flow so it is shutting off.

Switch on wall fireplace with Honeywell control SV9403, pilot does not turn on even there is current flowing into the controller device.


Good Evening. Your fireplace is equipped with a smart valve (SV) to which the valve itself acts as the control. This unit has intermittent pilot or hot surface ignition. Can you clarify to me which ignition this unit has?

Unit keeps cycling off and on with the "bucket full" light blinking


It appears as if the water may not be flowing through the hose.
* When you use a hose the unit must be located near the drain. If the hose is to long the water will not flow freely and cause the water to back up in the hose triggering the bucket full.
* If the unit is lower or the hose runs up hill even the slightest incline will cause the water not to flow backing up to the machine
* Hose must remain flat and in a down hill flow to the drain if you are running a longer hose than recommended. If you are have a long distance to run the hose elevate the dehumidifieer by placing it on a stand, milk crate, anything that will hold the unit. Be sure it is large enough and strong enough to support the unit to prevent it from falling. This will help siphon the water from the unit and prevent any water to back up the unit.
* If your using an old hose make sure there are no kinks and water flows freely through the hose. Any kinks or type of pinch in the hose will cause the water to back up

I hope this helps resolve your issue. This is the most common mistake when using a hose.

With the water at the hose bib on the side of the house turn on the unit and see if any water flows through. If not, clean the nozzle as it gets plugged up when not regularly used. Also be sure the REST button on the GFCI plug is pushed in.

AE115 is 2 years old and stopped heating the water. The red light is very, very dim which tells me it's a power problem. I've had no problems at all until now. I replaced the two 40 fuses and that did not...


Here are some possibilities and checks.
  1. The high temperature thermal cut-out has tripped. This would general shut off the Neon Light as well as the elements. However, even though your light is on check anyways.
  2. The flow switch not activating, Shut off the power to unit. Open the unit and observe if the flow switch activates when the water is turned on. If not then you have a faulty flow switch.
  3. Water flow to high. Turn the hot water tap on at the sink, adjust the outlet service valve until the water comes out of the tap at the required temperature, increase flow for cooler, decrease for hotter.
  4. The power selector screw not turned all the way to high. Check and turn all the way to high
  5. Element not working. Turn of the electricity to unit and test the resistance of the element. Here are the proper resistance for the element (240 volts, 40amps has a resistance of 2x12ohms) if no resistance than one or both elements need replacement.
I hope this gives you some more areas to check. Thanks for using FIXYA, Good Luck to you and have a great weekend. Jeff

Rinnai R50LSi water heater- Water doesn't heat.


Flow meters can get jammed by silt or debrise. The only way that I know to check this problem it to remove & inspect the part and that takes alot of training if you have a Rinnai (not recommended for the beginner).

One thing you could check is the inlet screen. Turn off the water and power to the unit and drain down. The screen in the black plastic circle on the inlet fitting under the unit. Unscrew this and check how much grit it has collected. Clean off, replace, turn water back on, open a hot faucet to get the air out then turn the power back on. This sometimes improves the flow enough to solve the problem.

GE Fridge/Freezer Having to turn temp up just to keep it cold


That's a typical sign of the defrost cycle not working and ice is building up on the coils. That prevents proper air flow of cold air around the compartments. As ice builds up you get less air flow and things warm up soooo you turn up the cold which causes more ice to build up and even less air flow soooo you turn up the cold. See where I'm going with this? You'll have to check your defrost timer, defrost t-stat and even the heat element. Look in your owners manual or online for diagrams of where the parts are located on your older unit, then go from there.
