The water will not drain into the storage tank, and insists on leaking out the back. How can I get it to drain into the tank?
The drain tube and or hole that is supposed to drain water into the bucket is clogged. To solve this problem, do the following:
First, turn the Unit OFF & Unplug it.
the water collection bucket and look up inside the bucket holder
cavity. You will see either a drain hole or small tubing that drains the
water into the bucket. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic
Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or tubing.
Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will
need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either
bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip
Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs.
As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water
may follow. Reinstall the bucket, plug the unit in and turn the Master
ON/OFF Switch to ON. NOTE: if you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar, but NO wire coat hangers.
Hope this helps you and thanks for using FixYa.
