Hello Geens

My name id Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You have a frozen condensate drain. About every 8-10 hours your refrigerator shuts down for about 20-30 minutes. At this time your defrost heater (Under your cooling coils) turns on and melts the frost off the coils. This condensate goes down your condensate drain. If the drain is frozen, the condensate has no where else to go except on the bottom of the freezer.

The freezer drain is behind the back wall of the freezer. You need to clear the ice out of the drain and put a heat sink in the drain hole.

You may try using warm water and a hair drier, but be ready for a small flood.

You did not give a model number, so I can not tell you how to repair.

Why do I have to have an external feed at bottom?


Having the dip tube routed to the bottom will keep the water circulating in the tank. Drawing out from wither the top or bottom will make no discernible difference.

Hot water bypass


On the back side of the water heater you should see a water line connection at the bottom and one at the top. There should also be a water line connecting between the top and bottom lines. The bottom is cold water input and should have a valve. The top is hot water out put and may or may not have a valve, depends if there is a check valve installed. and the connection line between the two will have a valve. If you are wanting to bypass close the top and bottom valve and open the middle valve. If you are wanting to use the water heater, open the top and bottom and close the middle valve. Open the Hot Water on your kitchen sink and wait until you have a steady flow of water before you turn on the water heater.

Friezer will not make ice or stay cold enough to keep stuff frozen I may have to have teck come out right for a new relay switch. Let me know anyone


You could try and save your self some money if the thermostat and relay are covered in ice. Use a hair dryer to thaw those parts out. You will want to turn off the freezer first.

How does rhe hot and cold water hook up on a 71-40d which is which top and bottom


Tanks are marked with Hot and Cold.
1) If water connections are on top of tank, look for red marking or word HOT that shows where hot water pipe connects. Look for blue marking or word COLD that shows cold water connection.
2) If water connections are on side of tank, cold water connects to bottom one, and hot connects to top.

3) If hot and cold are reversed, the tank will not work.
Pipes on top of tank: cold water enters tank and is sent to bottom of tank in a long tube called the dip tube. This means the cold is on the bottom since hot water rises to the top. The hot water exits top of tank.
Pipes on side of tank: You want cold water to enter bottom, so hot water naturally rises to the top outlet.

I have hot water for a minute then it goes to warm. I took off the 2 wires on each element and I have 15 ohms on the top and 5.5 on the bottom. Is my bottom element bad?


Sounds like bottom element may be bad but usually reads open circuit if bad. Also tan k would run about 8 gallons hot water then go cold. lots of warm water usually means bad dip tube.
Check if tank is hot at bottom element when not used for a while. If bottom element is still cold then bad element.
If bottom element is hot - (all water in tank is hot then you have a bad "dip tube" This is allowing incoming cold water to mix with outgoing hot water. The dip tube is usually A part of the cold water nipple or B located under the cold water inlet nipple.

My whirlpool dishwasher is leaking water from the bottom of door


Water is being forced out under the bottom door seal. Is the lower spray arm melted on the bottom? Or is there something directing the water flow toward the bottom of the tub instead of up toward the dishes?

General Humidifier Model 1042-L leaking water


Check the bottom of drain tube (tube connected to the bottom center of the bottom tray). Does water freely flow out the tube when the humdifier water feed is on?

If there is no flow from the tube and water is leaking from the bottom tray when the humidifier water feed is on then the tube or bottom tray is clogged with hardwater minerals or other material.

If the unit has not been used in a while it's possible a spider has take up residence by spinning a web in the bottom tray or tube.

The last poissible reason is the tray is cracked. You may order the tray from multiple sources on the web. Simply shop for model and price.
