There is generally a small indentation at the center of the back of the unit, the unit is pitched to the outside and the water usually drains from this "divot"

How do you set on and off auto

See page 7 on the user manual to set the humidity level and the unit will then operate within the set humidity range. You can also set the timer to make it shut off automatically after a specific time. You may also need to install the continuous drain feature if you do not want to empty the water tank repeatedly.

Little to no flow through unit

Check for crossover:
Clean water filter located just above where water enters unit.
Copy following link for Bosch powerstar manuals with brief troubleshoot section in each;
Call service technician who is qualified to work on computer that heats water. For plumbing problems, call local plumber. These are two different things.
Fix any brand tankless yourself, same day, by replacing the whole thing. Buy electric water heater at Lowes for $285 and be up and running by sundown.

No it's not safe to run. It can be cleaned with a solution of 20% white vinegar and 80% water. Where rubber gloves when cleaning the unit.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I need to fit a new drain hose to my Bosch Dishwsher Model No. SGS546A72/42 . Is this easy to do and can I obtain a diagram to assist.

not all models use the same size drain hose. you need to know what size the out put of the unit (could be found in the user manual or measure the outside diameter of the outlet on the unit.) also you need to know what is the size of the connection to the drain on the pipe under the sink or where ever it is located. it is also best if you know the length that you will need don't go short a little extra can usually be better than to short. with all of the above written down on paper go to the hardware store (I like Lowes) and have the store person show you what he has for your dishwasher. I like to put clamps on the hoses as it keeps them inplace and will eliminate future leaks.

a plastic pan under the unit with some small hose can divert the water elsewhere. use silicone calk to seal the hose in the hole you drilled in the bottom of the pan NEVER DRILL THE PAN OF THE AC UNIT ! use something to catch the water.. if you drill the unit, you take the chance of hitting one if the AC lines !!! there no fix'n that

I have a Model # FAA074S7A window unit 6.500 BTU. Is there any other maint. that I can do, other than cleaning the front fliter, to improve the performance of my unit? Also, condensation is building up...

Once a year you should take the unit out and spray the front and rear coils with coil cleaner and spray it with a water hose. The inside coil gets very dirty on the inside where its hard to see.(where the blower wheel is) The water splashing i condensation not draining to the rear of the unit. The usual problem is the unit not tilted toword the outside enough or the drain whole from the bottom of the front coil is plugged. This whole is only 1/4 inch its small does not take much to plug it. good luck hope this helps.

My dishwasher will not drain

Sounds like you may either have a blocked drainage line or a bad pump which controls draining the washer.

I would check to see if there is food scraps blocking the drainage screen inside the wash tub. This is typically the most common problem. If your washer unit drains into the sink drain such as connecting through the garbage disposal (as some do) this might be clogged with what is known as FOG (Fats, Oils and Grease) buildup. This would cause the water to be blocked from being pumped out of the tub.

Check these things and see if they help. A replacement pump can run as much as $100 depending on the unit, plus the installation labor from a repairman. If the unit is more than 5 years old, you might want to consider a newer, more efficient washer unit. A new washer from places like Lowes, can be as little as $300.

I have a used Maytag portable a/c, model #SMPEB08F2A. It has a little hole at the bottom left in the back which may be a drain but I don't know how to drain the water out. How and where do you drain the...

the drain is generally the midway in the back below the coil, there may or may no be an internal hose connected from the blower housing or evaporator coil housing, they are drained by gravity and the unit pitched to the outside should accomplish that if the drainage path is not clogged

Drain Hole for Frigidaire Window Air Conditioner

Leave it alone. DO NOT attempt to create a drain. As long as a window A/C unit is installed properly, (angled slightly down toward the rear) it will drain excess water over the rear lower lip of the unit should it get that high. Many models use some of the collected water/condensation. It gets lifted up by the fan blades to cool the coil.
