In garage/works perfectly/slow leak coming from an insulated hose that goes directly into the bottom of the freezer itself.


The hose coming from the bottom of the freezer is draining the melted water produced during the automatic defrost cycle. Usually the water is collected in a pan somewhere around the hot compressor motor so the heat can evaporate the water.

The hot copper tube by the compressor is the high pressure tube going to the condenser. The other tube going to the compressor is the return line from the evaporator and, after normal operation, is cold to the touch. It is this cold refrigerant returning to the compressor that cools the motor.

HDMI makes black screen


IT sounds like the ccfl tubes (the bulbs that help light your tv) are going out. Think about replacing them. You'd need to take it in to get this done. Also, it may be cheaper just to replace the TV entirely, given the cost of replacing the tubes.
Good Luck!

Where do you install R22 piercing valve on RV ac system?


R22? You're not still using that are you?! On the compressor you have a small tube that goes to the condenser (hot side) and a larger tube that comes back from the evaporator (cold side) The piercing valve goes on the cold side, Fit the guages to the valve. You should have about 3 bar with the unit running

Hot water comes on but then runs cold after a minuate then goes hot again. The water appears to be hotter downstairs


If you have lukewarm water.. and at times it's hot.. then warm. or after running hot for a while and it cools.. chances are you have a cracked or failing dip tube.

The dip tube is just what it sounds like. a tube that delivers cold water to the bottom of the tank.. to mix with the hot water.. this keeps the hottest water at the top for faster delivery.

If this tube is cracked near the top.. or along it's length.. you may get some hot water.. then cold.. then warm..etc etc.

They are inexpensive to replace.. but as always exercise caution and follow proper procedure to relieve pressure, water supply and power/fuel before attempting a repair.

Generally this tube is inserted right where the cold water inlet pipe is on the heater.

A good plumber or water heater replacement or repair company could inspect fix and replace for a lot less than a new water heater.

Best of luck

I have a rheem hot water tank when you turn on the hot water it comes out nice an hot but not even 30 secounds after that the water cools off and it stays as just warm water. I hear the gas kick in to heat...


Could be your thermostat but it might be your inlet dip tube. Your water heater has a plastic pipe that carries the cold water to the bottom of the tank. When you open your tap, it takes the hot water from the top of the tank, the cold goes to the bottem and gets heated. If this tube breaks, or comes loose, it will short circuit the cycle. The tank is hot but as soon as you start using water, cold water comes in at the top and mixes with your hot water, giving you just warm water. If you have room above your tank, you can remove the union on the cold side , screw out the pipe nipple, and look inside and see if there is a tube. If not you can buy one from home depot or lowes for just a few dollars. Also a water heater should be partially drained annually to remove any solids from the bottom, which will allow better heat transfer.If you find bits of plastic when you do, then you know where your dip tube went. Also if you've had a hot water faucet stop up and it looked like plastic there it is.

I have a top-mount refrigerator that is leaking from the air vent


I had the same problem with a whirlpool refrigerator with freezer on top. TURN OFF & UN-PLUG IT. To access the freezer drain you must pull the refrig out from the wall and take off the bottom-back panel, it uses some (7) small nut headed screws. The drain is the white tube on the left going into the drain pan. You can push a long wire or plastic hose up the tube, however that will probably only hit something solid (ice) and blowing air may not clear it, until you let the freezer completely thaw out, which may take several days. The following may help experienced do-it-yourself nuts, it is not for the faint of heart! I took out all the freezer items and placed them in coolers to keep them frozen. Then removed the back panel in the freezer, two nut headed screws at the top center. The bottom of this panel was frozen to the bottom of the freezer compartment, so I used a hair-dryer to thaw it enough to loosen it. (Be careful: water and electricity do not mix well!) The left side of this panel has some electrical control wires attached, so the left side will not come out, just rotate the panel and lean it against the left side of the compartment. Now use the hair dryer (or pour hot water on it) to melt the ice along the bottom back of the compartment under the freezer coils. BE CAREFUL: The fins are sharp and will cut! Do not bend them. If they are all frozen up your heating element-defroster may be out. If there is only ice along the bottom, the hair-dryer or hot-water will help melt it to the point it can be removed. If the drain hole at the back-bottom-center-right is plugged with ice, poor hot water on it to speed up its melting. The hair drier will not do this very fast and you cannot chip it out without damaging the plug hole. Mine was solid ice about 2 inches into the tube and hot water finally thawed it. Then pour water through the hole to flush it out. Clean the bottom drain pan & re-assemble. Good luck.

2 problems: not enough hot water, and where the rubberized tube goes


It's my opinion that the tube goes in the boiler so that when the water boils, the steam will push the water up the tube and to the brew head. Without the tube, you will just get steam through the grounds.

Good luck!
