The best way to stop your situation is to connect the hot hose to the hot tap. A hardware store should have a female cap you can screw onto the back of the machine, or get a male plug, same thread as a tap and plug the end of the hot hose. Elevating the end of the hot hose may help..It's normal for water to flow out the hose as you've described...Good luck...Nomess

YES YOU NEED TO EITHER PURCHASE A SCREW ON PLUG FOR THE COLD SIDE OR HOOK UP A HOSE FROM A COLD WATER VALVE TO THE COLD SIDE OF YOUR INLET WATER VALVE ON THE WASHER (YOU SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN A HOSE WHEN YOU BOUGHT IT, IF NOT YOU CAN PURCHASE ONE AT YOUR LOCAL HARDWARE STORE OR APPLIANCE PARTS STORE , OR SEARS PARTS DIRECT. LET ME KNOW IF THIS WAS HELPFUL!

It will heat the water as normal, even though it is a cold fill only washer.
Just select prog as normal, washer will do rest.

Air To Water Heat Pipe Heat Exchanger


General Information
Air to water heat pipe heat exchanger is mainly to heat water using the hot air from heat recovery, it can be used for domestic water, water for boilers or production process. The exchanger is constructed using a partition in the middle to separate the exchanger, both sides are independently sealed. A single heat pipe can be replaced. While working the hot air flows from one side to the other side, the heat pipe absorbs heat. Meanwhile, cold water flows from the reverse side, the heat pipe releases heat, thus heating the cold water from the reverse side. The outlet temperature is not lower than dew temperature.
Field of Application
-feed drying
-cereals and oil processing
-chemical industry
Specification

Advantage:
-high heat recovery efficiency
-seldom temperature difference, fast heat starting, good isothermal
-the speciality of the heat pipe results in a high wall temperature, exhaust gas temperature can be reduced without reaching the acid dew point, avoid the corrosion of the equipment.

Core tube material: stainless steel, carbon steel
Fin material: aluminum, stainless steel
Tube/fin bond: extruded, high-frequency welding
Tube arrangement: staggered
Core tube external diameter: ?25

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.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html#vent

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

Low water pressure


Hi Bob,

You can determine if the tank is the problem by connecting a garden hose to the drain that is provided on most water heaters. Before doing this, be sure to shut of the electrical supply to the heater - otherwise you can damage heating elements if an electric type or waste fuel by heating an empty tank if a gas / propane fired type.

If you get a slow flow out of this drain, it means that somewhere in the cold water supply side to / in the tank - there is a problem. Inside the tank, the cold water is delivered by a "dip tube" that distributes the cold water to the bottom in the tank. Dip tubes are used in both electric and gas / propane fueled heaters. Here's a cut away view of a typical tank:



6_29_2012_9_57_32_pm.jpg

If the tube is clogged, or there is build up, scale or debris in the supply (cold water) side of the heater, flow rates will suffer. Likewise, if there is a problem with the output of the tank, it will directly affect flow as well.

If you get a good flow rate from the drain, then the issue is going to be on the hot water output side of the heater. Again, the same build up, scale, debris issues on the hot water out put pipe will cause problems with flow. Typcial tanks do not have dip tubes for the hot water side of the tank - as taking hot water from the top of the tank is most desireable and is furthest away from the cold water that rushes in to make up the hot hot water going out.

There's nothing really in the tank itself that can cause issues with flow outside of the dip tube, and piping to and from the tank.

Good luck!

Describe your FFU2124DW12 Problem The freezer works very good and gets very cold, But the outside walls and top gets EXTREMLY hot


Freezers have tubes that run inside the walls and top of the case, these carry the refrigerant thru the heat exchange process, this will cause the outsides and top of the freezer case to get warm/hot some times, this is normal, but I recommend you to make sure there is at least 1 1/2" of ventalation clearance around the entire freezer so that it can exchange heat efficiently.
If you don't think the amount of heat present at the outside of the freezer case is NORMAL, then I recommend contacting Frigidaire directly and discuss this with there customer service people.

I have a problem with my Rinnai hot water heater giving me intermitant hot and cold. The water gets hot and I get in the shower. A few minutes later the hot water stops and I have to shut of the hot water...


We had the same problem - the hot water would only be hot for 3 -5 minutes and shut off, then we had to turn the water off, wait a few minutes, and do it again. VERY FRUSTRATING.

Solution: The Rinnai serviceman showed me the heat-exchanger blower/fan: It was clogged with dust and moths.

Another clue: Our Rinnai was extremely noisy when the heat came on. After the fan was cleaned and replaced, it is nearly silent.

If you are reasonably mechanically inclined:
TURN THE BREAKER / POWER OFF to the unit.

The blower-fan is located in the lower central area of the unit (at least on our unit). If you draw imaginary north-south, east-west lines through the center of the unit, the fan is in the lower-left quadrant. There is a spring clamp securing the black rubber accordian-like tube to the fan. There are two screws that secure the fan to the unit. there are two plugs that connect to the fan, as well as a third air-flow sensor that should be removed. then you can look at the fan unit, as well as the grill on the underside of the heat-exchanger that should be cleaned.

My thought was to go out and get a simple bug-screen, and place it over the air-input outlet vent going outside, but the repair guy said that although it may sound good, if that screen ever gets clogged, or reduces airflow to the Rinnai, then the unit will work harder, or even shut off, giving the same problem.

LLD125 pool heater leaking water from inside


My heat exchanger was cracked. I found an old welder who knew how to weld the cracks for $100 vs $900 for a new exchanger,. Also ordered replacement seals for the 2 chambers. I used high temp automotive engine sealant as an additional sealant precaution. Also inspected tubes and cleaned corrosion. Works fine last 3 years. Takes some mechanical skills.

Heating pressure gauge goes up


yes tami
there should be a pressure rellief valve fitted.
it also sounds like the heat exchanger is blocked if the hot water is not as good as it used to be and the boiler reaches temperature too quickly then there is scale in the heat exchanger and needs to be cleaned or replaced

Frozen tubing in heat exchanger


The 2400ES in cold climates needs to be a twin piped unit. 3" SS venting with a combination air port made of pvc also 3 feet apart I believe on the same wall and at the same plane. Keep the cover on at all times and this will seal of the heater from the rest of the house and from freezing.

Vibrations and banging when heater is turned on


wow! That heater that you have is meant for a very large swimming pool, quite a bit oversized, i bet i gets the job done quick though. I have seen before that somebody plumbed in a heater backwards, there are elevated arrows on the black manifold of the heater, make sure inlet and outlet are plumbed in correctly. Make sure you get your water tested. Because the water in your hot tub is no circulating as often (I assume) as a pool would be, the stagnate water sits inside the heat exchanger. What can happen, for instance, if you have high calcium, is the certain tubes inside the heat exchanged can get so clogged with calcium and they are completely shut and the banging noise is due to excessive heat build up inside the heat exchanger. This can ruin a heat exchanger very quickly and the heat exchanger is half the cost of the heater if you were to get a new one. You can check and see if tubes in the heat exchanger are clogged by taking the manifold off of the heat exchanger, and shining a flashlight down the different tubes. However you have to disassemble quite a bit to actually be able to do that.
