Machine is not drawing water in from reservoir and keeps telling to prime


Our Keurig 2.0 did that at the very beginning. After a call to customer service I learned warm water might help. I filed the reservoir about half way full and then heated water in my kettle and began adding it to the reservoir until the message went away. The temperature of the water was 113 degrees. Hope it works for you.

Furnace has water under it, why? Its a Dayton gas furnace.


There are several questions that need to be answered about what type of system you have, but i found this posting that may help:
As your gas furnace runs, is there water leaking at the base? Is the furnace's air filter wet, too?There are a few things that could be happening here. But if you have a high-efficiency furnace, here's the most common cause: a condensation leak.
We'll explain why a furnace creates condensation, and what's causing it to leak out of your furnace.
Note: You'll know if you have a high-efficiency furnace if:
  • The yellow energy guide tag says your furnace's efficiency is 90% or higher AFUE.
  • The vent/flue pipe is white PVC as opposed to metal.
Why a high-efficiency furnace creates condensation
How in the heck does a high efficiency furnace create condensation/water anyway?
It's all about how the furnace extracts heat from combustion gases.
A lower-efficiency furnace extracts some heat from combustion gases and then quickly vents them out the flue pipe.
But a high-efficiency furnace, to extract more heat, has 2 heat exchangers. These allow the furnace to extract heat from the gases for a longer period of time. This causes the combustion gases to cool and then condense.
That condensation then exits out your home through a drain. But if that water is pooling around the furnace, there's a problem preventing it from draining properly.
Causes of a condensation leak around a high-efficiency furnace
  • Clogged condensation tubing
  • Clogged condensation drain
  • Breaks in the condensation line
  • Issues with the condensate pump (if you have one)
You'll need a furnace technician to diagnose which of these is the issue and then fix it.
Other causes of leaking water around a furnace
If you have a conventional, standard-efficiency furnace...then its flue pipe may be incorrectly sized.
If you have a whole-house humidifier connected to the furnace...there may be an issue which is causing the humidifier to leak into your furnace. Your humidifier should be getting annual maintenance from a professional to prevent this.

When water reservoir is filled up and placed on the base, water leaks out into the tray from inside


Sounds like the "o ring" that seals around the bottom of the reservoir is worn out. It should be replaceable.

How much water gal/hr is reasonable to expect from the furnace humidifier overflow in "0 degree" farenheit outside to heat a 1500 square foot normal midwestern house to 72 degrees inside having a norm


There is no flow rating because it would depend on too many factors. What you do need to check is the float valve. The water valve is opening and closing like it should be but the reservoir is filling too much.

I have an Armstrong SX Ultra 90 propane gas furnace that the fan motor will not shut off ,the thermostat is on auto.


Hit the side of the furnace. Some times there's a sensor inside that gets locked up from a dirty filter.

Brand New Ducane Furnace with Multiple Error Codes


Check your drain line. It appears that water is not draining and backing up into the furnace. Is there a drain trap? If not or if there is no vent on the drain line there can be a vacuum created when the furnace is running and it actually pulls water back into the furnace and when the inducer shuts off it releases the vacuum allowing the water to drain.

When I pour water into (empty) pot to fill. Bunn coffee maker


If you pour water into the machine, and water comes out, then the reservoir is full of water. There is no way the water can bypass the reservoir and go directly into the pot.

We have a keurig coffeemaker, and it's not making a full cup..maybe half the water comes out....have restarted, gone thru menu, don't know what the problem is...


Check the needle inside the k-cup reservoir/holder to ensure it is clean and free from obstructions. The needle can get clogged easily, preventing it from brewing properly. You can remove it by pushing up from the bottom where it dispenses into your coffee cup. Wash it out completely, then brew a "blank" cup of just water on the largest size setting with no k-cup in it. If that isn't the problem, check your water reservoir tank to make sure it is seated properly. Jiggle it a bit or remove it and replace it pressing it down to make sure it is secured in the base well. Hope that helps! Best of luck...

Ducane high efficiency propane furnace, pressure switch problem


A short cycle heat cycle indicat a pressure switch replacement was needed. This did not fix the problem. the problem was in PCV line since the end was filled with slugs and cause the line to backup with water. When this happen the system would stop asking for gas. the water would leak out and it would restart. The problem was fixed by cleaning value at end of PCV. This released the water, two quart of water, that was back up causing problem. Curious if a filter change indicator was providing a clue that was missed?
