Check to make sure your water lines don't run above. This can cause water to condense.

Leeking water a lot


Condensate water accumulates in the evaporator.There is a tube that drains the water out of the evaporator to the condenser side where the fan picks it up or an external drain. The tube is plugged. It needs to be cleaned out.

Go to Bryantrv.com and click on the Service Manuals link. It sounds like he missed a wire hooking it back up. There are usually 3 wires, red for hot, connected to the furnace and also a small blue wire with a red stripe, another small blue wire connected to varying colors but comes from the thermostat and a ground, usually yellow. There is a relay on the fan side of the furnace and a thermal safety on the back side, under the burner. The fan gets it's power from this relay and the furnace will not run until the fan is turning. It's common for the relay to go bad but I've only had to replace on thermal fuse in the last 12 years.

My thermostat will start the furnace, but the fan will not work.


If it's an older forced air unit furnace, it's likely the inducer motor has malfunctioned. They usually make a lot of noise before they fail, but occasionally they just stop working without warning.

Why is water accumulating at the base of a newly installed furnace?


Air contains water molecules. Cold air has a lot more than hot air does. When you heated all that cold air the moisture was squeezed out in much the same way water accumulates on the window glass when hot air interfaces with cold.

New furnace, Water In Induction Motor, Yellow Flame


The problem is too much gas as opposed to not enough air. It is still running rich. Did you take into account the elevation of the location your furnace is installed at. The higher above sea level the less air that you have to aid in cumbustion. The condensation is from excess gas being cold and causing water to accumulate. Can you run it like this? Yes but it will cause issues with soot and carbon deposits. It will also cost you more money in the long run.

Itseems as though the condensation trap on Lennox G26 not working


Hi!
Take of both access covers on your furnace. In the bottom compartment (where the indoor blower fan is) there is a condensate trap, It will be black, gray, or white. Disconnect the rubber tubing that is connected to it (these tubes run up to the collector box in the top compartment. Remove the condensate trap and wash it out until it is clean inside. You will have to shake it some to get all the dirt out of it. Reinstall it and you should be good to go. Hope I was of help to you!! Good Luck!!

How to i stop my Whirlpool Gold from leaking water from the bottom? (Fridge on Top, Freezer on Bottom)


This water is accumulated during the automatic defrost cycle, which occurs every 24-hours. A fan is supposed to pull air over it to evaporate it.

Clean all the dust and lint accumulation from under the unit, remove the condensation collection pan and clean it, and make sure the bottom fan is running.

I can't emphasize strongly enough how much of an enemy the accumulation of dirt and dust under a refrigerator can be its worst enemy. It can make the refrigerator exhibit symptoms of much more serious problems. Sometimes a good cleaning can have it operating like new with no real 'repairs' whatsoever.

Water keeps dripping under the fridge.


In a frost-free refrigerator/freezer the frost that would normally accumulate on the inside wall of the freezer is removed by heaters imbedded in the freezer's walls. Periodically these heaters are turn on to melt the frost which then exits the freezer as liquid water through a drain in bottom. This water accumulated in a pan underneath the refrigerator and is supposed to be removed by evaporation. If the flow of melted frost from the freezer is greater than the evaporation rate in the pan then the pan will overflow and you will get a pool of water on your floor. A bad seal on the freezer door will allow more frost to form inside. Also if you leave the freezer door open a lot you will accumulate more frost. The evaporation rate in the pan can be affected by the ventilation around it. If the vents on the bottom of your refrigerator are clogged with dust it will decrease the evaporate rate in the pan. In addition, many refrigerators have a fan the pulls air around the pan. If this fan has stopped working the evaporation rate in the pan will also decrease.

Water dripping inside fridge


OK, i see a lot of this, and on a fridge that is nearing 10 years old, its pretty normal. Now, we all know that water is leaking into the fridge section from up top because the drain is plugged that is under the evaporator.. now to fix the WHY it happened. most of the time this will happen because the fridge did not go into a DEFROST cycle for a while.. reason being one of two things... either the defrost timer has quit working, or the bimetal thermostat sensor that is clipped on the evaporator has failed. the bi-metal thermostat is usually located in the freezer behind the rear wall and looks like a round "clip on" with 2 wires coming off of it. one pic of one is here.

(just replaced mine the other day, NO MORE WATER LEAKS! =) )
hope this helps!
