The most probable cause of this water occurrence is your A/C's tubing failure or A/C's condensation pump failure, both of which are nicely explained in a great, handy diagnostic article at the following link:

Odour from only kitchen sink No food trapped plumber says pipes &vent syst in proper work order plumb is stumped 6 mos ago same thing happen pipes & trap under sink were changed house is 3 yr old


Presuming that the proper traps are installed, your issue may be related to flow. Sometimes, a run that is too steep causes so much flow that the water gets removed from the sink p-trap and will remove water from there.

To test, pour a some water down the sink, the next time that you smell sewer gasses. If that stops it, investigate why the water is being drawn away. You might consider an additional air vent, as a diagnostic tool.

Need to know if my Rheem 21V30-6N water heater is approved for use in mobile home


ONLY if the air intake is located on bottom so air can be drawn from under the mobile home
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html#manufactured

-Or- if your water heater has power vent that draws air from outside, usually through side wall.

-Or- if your water heater is installed outside.... good for warm climates only

Otherwise ordinary store-bought water gas heater draws too much air from the space, and cannot work properly in a mobile home.

The right type of vent for a moble home


Some vents are adjustable where as you can turn them at the angle you want get those if you can,the vents dont have to be for mobile homes only. Take one of your older vents to an air conditioner parts store they should be able to match one for you.

Water drains out the vent bellows. how do I repair this


Did you mean to write " the vents below " ?

I am going to presume so as I am not aware of "Bellows" on such machines.

If water is leaking from any machine operating at MAINS VOLTAGE, by using it you are putting YOUR LIFE AT RISK !

WARNING !!!!!!!!!!!
DO NOT USE THIS MACHINE UNTIL YOU HAVE IT CHECKED BY A QUALIFIED PERSON.

My Rheem powervent2 water heater squeals while running


The power vent motor squeals when burner is activated?
See if you can oil the power vent motor.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Anode-under-blower-200.jpg

If the water heater squeals when water is turned on, then remove heat trap nipples and inserts and install di-electric nipples from water heater department local home store.

When do you need to vent a bathroom sink?


You always need to vent a sink. If you do not vent the sink it will create a vacume and **** water, or air from the nearest fixture.. example, if you connect to the sewer line near a bath tub, when you run the sink water it will **** air from the bath tub drain. If it sucks a lot of air, you will smell the sewer odor since the water is no longer blocking it.
If you cannot run the vent to the roof, there is an in wall vent valve called a studor vent that may work. Get with someone at Lowes or Home depot to show you one.

My reliance sta-kleen 502 is leaking. The water is dripping on top of the pilot light, extinguishing the flame . Please advise me with step by step instructions to diagnose and attempt fix this myself....


If you have a leaking water heater there is a serious problem.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-leaking.html
Page shows how to limp along on a leaking water heater if your water heater needs replacement.

One of three things is causing the water:
1) Loose water connection on top of tank that is dripping down inside tank >> check pipes on top of tank.

2) The vent is clogged or not working correctly causing condensation inside flue pipe.
Condensation water is dripping back down inside tank.
Problem means possible CO poisoning if gas is not venting.
Look at vent pipe to see if joints are corroded.
Use long fireplace match > light match and put into draft hood at top of tank and see if smoke goes up.
Put hand at draft hood opening when water heater turns on to see if vent gas enters home.
Do same test when furnace turns on to see if furnace vent is pushing back into water heater.
Does water heater vent inside same pipe as furnace? You may need to set up separate vent for water heater if furnace gasses are pushing back into home.
Check furnace vent for obstructions.
Look at vent stack top of home to see if hood is in place.
Check if bird nest is built inside warm vent pipe.
Improper flue is top priority for getting fixed so vent gasses properly escape home.
You may have to call a plumber.
Professional plumbing forum:
http://www.thetankatwaterheaterrescue.com/forums/forum3/

3) Your water heater is rusted out.
A rusted tank has to be replaced.
It cannot be repaired.
However, before replacing tank, you do not want a tank failure where tank ruptures and water runs inside home until water is shut off.
This will cause major damage.
Protect yourself first.
Turn off water valve above tank.
Move gas knob to 'pilot' so burner is not heating water.
Open tub spout on hot side to relieve pressure on tank so it will not rupture.

Now you're protected.
Link above shows how to limp along on failed tank until you can replace heater.

You need a new gas water heater from Lowes or Home Depot
Look at label on side of you tank for gallons and btu's of your water heater.
Measure height to flue pipe so you get same height water heater, so pipes don't have to be changed.
You need a pipe wrench and teflon tape which will be wrapped on each pipe thread when pipes are reassembled.

Step1) Drain water heater using valve at bottom of tank.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-will-not-drain.html

2) Turn off gas valve going into heater.
When gas valve is perpendicular to gas line, then gas is off.
Dissemble gas line to water heater.

3) Disconnect flue pipe and support flue pipe with wire so it doesn't not fall down. Flue pipe joints should be held together at each joint with 3 screws.

4) Turn off water. Shut off valve is on COLD side.
Disconnect water pipes.

5) Move old water heater out of way.

6) Set new water heater in place. Put water heater in drip pan.

7) Connect water pipes >> cold goes to side marked cold.
Hot to hot.
Buy new flexible water connector pipes at home center for easy installation of water pipes.

8) Connect gas line exactly as it was connected before.
Home center sells flexible gas line connector for easy installation of gas line.
To test for gas leak after installation, mix liquid soap with water and put around gas line joints to see if there are bubbles.
Natural gas has less pressure than water lines, so gas pipes are easy to seal with ordinary wrench.

9) install TP pipe that runs to floor. Use old one off old heater.

10) Fill tank completely with water until water is coming out of tub spout.

11) Turn on gas, and light pilot as shown in manual.
New gas heater sometimes have small water leak when first fired up, so ignore a bit of water.

12) Save water heater manual like it is gold, and read everything in manual.

Rheem power vent motor doesn't shut off


There could be blockage in your water heaters venting on the outside of the home. It sound like the high limit switch has been tripped. Try unplugging the tank and plugging it back in. this will reset the tank. if the problem persists you will want to call your provider for service.

Waste not always leaving the commode bowl.


I'm guessing here.

It sounds to me like you may have a vent proglem. I presume a professional plumber did your conversion? You may want to call him or her back to adjust the tank water level. This will assure you have at least the minimum amount of water required to create the suction necessary to draw the waste down the drain. A partially obstructed vent and/or low water level would contribute to the trouble you describe, though it could be something else.

Let me know if this works for you.
