Water condensate tanks keep filling up. Never needed to empty them before with many years of use.

Rick, check the hoses are not clogged or plugged. There is probably a small pump which may have quit and will need replaced. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Cabin heater not working or not working good enough in BMW 3 series.

A common problem in the BMW 3 series of the 99 - 2002 year is that when there is a leak in the cooling system for what ever reason ( perished hoses leak in the 3 series a lot along with expansions bottles, radiators ) air leaks in as tiny amounts of water leave through the leak.
This air rises to the highest point in the cooling system which is the internal cabin heater matrix radiator in the 3 series models of the pre-said years.
As it fills with air over time the water pump can no longer circulate the coolant ( A pump designed for liquid will not move air only liquid ) leaving the internal cabin heater matrix radiator empty ,the coolant now takes the alternative route hence no heat.
A temporary solution is to put in more water or coolant remembering to ;

1 Loosen the air bleed screw or remove it when doing so.
2 Do it while the engine is running and cold and the pump is rotating.
3 Make sure the heating in the car is on full tempeture so as to allow the water to flow up and into the internal radiator.
4 Leave the bleed screw open for five minutes so to be sure all the air has purged.

After that tighten it and replace the filler cap and you should be good to go. if it does not fix the problem bring it to a garage to have the system pressure checked for leaks. they may also do a sniffer test to see if there is any combustion gases in there that should not be, this may indicate major machanical failure of the engine block head gasket or more common in the 2000 318 's is a cracked engine block head which needs total replacement.

So remember! practice and enjoy :)

Mr. Slim is dripping from movable doors.

Try to get at the drain hose from outside. It sounds gross but try to blow some air int the drain hose. Do not blow to hard but hard enough to tell if the hose is clogged or not. If the hose is not plugged hou may have to tear into the unit a bit. The drain hose is either on the left or right hand side of the unit. You should be able to take out the filters in the unit to see down in the drain pan. It is under the coil and you should be able to see water in it. It may be better to have a technician come over and tear into the unit to get the drain pan out and cleaned. Sometimes if water gets trapped in the drain pan it will slime up and cause it not to drain properly. They do sell a tablet that you can use in the drain pan to treat the water to keep it from sliming up and getting moldy. We sell the bottle of 100 tablets for around 25 dollars. Your local HVAC Wholesaler or contractor should have these on hand. Let me know how it goes.

This is soooo lame but I cant remember how to put the correction tape in.... :~)

As you face the machine, the full spool goes on the left side of the printwheel carriage and the takeup (empty) spool goes on the right. Be sure that the shiny side of the lift off tape faces AWAY for the paper. The matte side is what does the lifting.

Hope this helps.

Ice in the unit

Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, Left house for a while with unit running and when I returned little or no air was emmiited from unit, and when I removed back cover, solid sheet of ice!

Sounds like you have a coolant leak or the thermostat is malfunctioning.
You need to have the freon checked first to see it is not low.
This one reason that will make it freeze up .
let me know how much freon it took.

Please remember to leave a rating before you go!
Thank you

its self adding toner, besure your cartridge is not empty, take it out and shake it side to side. youll feel if its got toner, Remember kids, when you shake up toner, it gathers air and will leak or pour just like water. you may have to turn off & on so it completes its stir cycle a couple times. By they way, i,m not an apprentice or rookie. long time service co owner.
