Outdoor AC unit drains water excessively when heat is on

This may not work, because I had the same kind of problem with my dehumidifier. The coils needed to be cleaned off (there was a lot of gunk on the coils). I don't know if there is some sort of drainage hose, but that needed to be cleaned out too. A garden hose worked just fine. I now do this once a year or so, & the dehumidifier works great.

Most all units have a water slinger on the blade that throws the water onto the condenser coil, it makes it more efficient and disposes of the water. Down side is that the condenser coil get dirty after years of this. You can slide the unit out of the case and clean it and extend it life be quite a bit doing so.

I wouldn't be wiping it up. I would let it go into the drainage pan. The design of refrigerators is that the drainage pan is placed by the condenser coils so that the evaporation of the water helps cool down the condenser grill, which increases the efficiency of the unit.

During this time of the year, your furnance is not taking the moisture out of the air so increased moisture in your refrigerator is normal because the air is more humid.

Tank sweats profusly

Sweating tank can cause moisture problems inside bathroom.
Sweating is caused when incoming water temperature is hotter or colder than air temperature inside bathroom.
You can verify this by not flushing tank for several hours and notice that sweating stops once water inside tank warms or cools to same temperature inside bathroom.
Problem can also be cause when there is not enough ventilation inside bathroom and water on tank does not evaporate.

To solve problem:
1) Increase bathroom ventilation and add dehumidifier or fan so condensation drys.
2) Insulate interior of tank. Empty water and let tank dry. Tape off moveable parts. Use can of spray foam and insulate inside of tank. Let foam dry and cut away excess foam.
3) Add tempering tank or staging tank inside room to pre-heat/cool water before it enters tank

We have a hotpoint RLA 34 ( MICROBAN ) FRIDGE . water keeps seeping into the bottom , under the crisper box tried turnining temp down , made sure it's level , no blocked drainage hole . door shuts tight...

You said no blocked drainage hole, where was the drainage hole that you checked located? Did you pour water down this drain, and furthermore did you check that the water you poured into the drain flowed into the condensate pan on the outside of the fridge? Unless you have a problem with an ice maker leaking water, it sounds very much like you do have a blocked drainage hole, otherwise known as a defrost drain. the drain system begins underneath the evaporator coil inside the freezer, this is where the water that is collected in the defrost cycle flows into a drain tube that leads the water down to the condensate pan. The best and safest way to clear out this drain is to blow it out with compressed air, after you remove any and all ice at the beginning of the drainage system, in other words, the hole located underneath the evaporator coil.

Went on 1.5hr trip when I noticed water dripping down on the pass side floorboard. Pulled the glove box and noticed a ton of condensation on the a/c box (condensing coil?). 2005 Exp V8. About at the same...

There is a condensation drainage tube that runs from the condenser to the bottom of the vehicle. I would assume this tube was clogged by somthing and the excess water was building up and decreasing the efficiency of the a/c. I would remove the drainage line at the bottom of the ac condenser and make sure nothing is blocking the drainage. Hope this helps!

We have been getting service code 50 for our SubZero -- it;s a 690 model fridge/freezer. I cleaned everything however over last three weeks the error repeats. I reset the board by pulling power from the...

Error code 50 means excessive refrierator section compressor run. Possible causes include: dirty condenser, stopped condenser motor, faulty termistor or an evaporator refrigerant leak. If it is a refrigerant leak it usually shows up as frost or water driplets half way down on the back wall. Clear codes by holding the alarm button in for 15 seconds.

Refrigerator is sweating filling drain pan

A leaky door gasket will allow excess moisture in and it will condense on the cold surfaces and can also cause excess frost on the evaporator coil causing more water to go into the drain pan.
A good gasket will hold a dollar bill securely all away around the door.
