Wall mount. Model AKDY 75631 voltage 120V, motor power 170W, vent pipe inner diameter 6 inch. Originally had a range hood with inner diameter of 8 inch. Should I use a reducer pipe or return the AKDY and search for a range hood with 8 inch vent pipe

When we plug in the hose the motor in garage runs but no air or suction comes out of the outlets. we cleared all the lines too.


Check to see if you have suction at the unit. If you have suction at the unit, your pipes are stopped up. If you don't have suction, you have a pipe loose under the house. Also you could just have a stopped up hose

How to set up my onga pump and filter its about 8 years old but looks like the currant model.just got it and they didnt have instructions bugger.


We begin at the suction line. I'll assume that you will be using this as a
pool pump since you have a filter. At the suction line, install a horizontal
or a vertical check valve along the suction pipe. Then the suction pipe
is connected to the bottom pipe adapter of the filter. The top pipe adapter of the filter shall be connected to the pump suction adapter. At the pump discharge adapter, install a GI Pipe Tee. At the bottom of the GI pipe tee, put a GI nipple going to the pump discharge adapter. Opposite it shall be the pipe plug to serve as the priming port. At the GI pipe cross, install a GI nipple about 6-inch long with a service **** to balance water flow. At the end of the service **** install another 6-inch GI nipple to attach a gate valve to control water flow. After the gate valve
is the discharge pipelines going back to the pool.

Note: Pump must be installed within 3 to 5 meters near the water source. You may install more than 5 meters but suction could be difficult for the pump.

Priming the pump:

Open the plug at the tee that serves as the priming port, Fill this up with
water to full level with the service **** at full close position. Once filled
up, replace and close the priming port. Put the power on, and start the
pump running, then slowly open the service **** or flow control valve
to appropriate level.

Just send your e-mail for further assistance. Thanks.

Size of vent pipe


You will be fine with 2 bends in an 8 inch pipe. If you bend it more than 3 times though you will loose fan force. If you up to a 10 inch duct you will not have good fan force because the space is bigger.

Good Luck and Please Rate FixYa!

Maytag legacy series washer not holding water


Same problem here. But according to Maytag Service, the draining pipe may be too deep inside the draining tube on the wall, thus creating a siphon effect and not allowing the tub to fill.
Their suggestion is to ckeck the pipe and make sure no more than 6-8 inches are inside the draining pipe. This should take care of the suction. We'll see, Imma do that when I get home.

Oil trap for 2 ton split unit


Pipe size is okay, not that I know any better than the manufacturer, but I would recommend at least two and possibly even three oil traps in the vapor line on the way back up.

No suction


There is a set of blocks that are installed on the venting system to make the unit recirculate....use the manual to find them and make sure your not venting half outside and half into the kitchen.

Remote control units have diagnostic program in the
control, after 3 to 5 minutes of operating if the diagnostic
tools detect abnormal operation, then its shutdown the unit
to protect from damage. Thermistor sensor is one of the
parts that detect the operation of the unit. Out of range
or defective thermistor can shut the operation of the unit.
- If your indoor and outdoor is clean start the unit in cool mode and monitor the outdoor pipes. If your suction pipe is icing or dry then your unit is under charge, but if your suction is cold and sweating then the system is ok and sure that the thermistor sensor is defective.
- Out of range thermistor sensor in both return air and freeze up sensor can cause the tripping “off “ the unit. The resistance of both thermistor is 8 to 10k ohms@25 deg. C temp. , so can test by using ohm meter.
- Try also to check the voltage in you area if normal, loose ac outlet.
- Be sure that unit is clean no obstruction in your air out and air in.
- Unplug the unit to reset the c6 error.
