Not normal. Sounds like the seals in the unit have failed and you'll need to replace all the seals and gaskets on your outdrive.

My coleman air conditioner 7300 series is leaking water on the inside


Water in an air conditioner is generally condensation building up on the indoor coil. This happens when the temperature of the coil is below the current dew point of the atmosphere. You have possibly two issues going on.

1) the condensation drip line, which carries the water to the outside is blocked or disconnected (most likely blocked with wet dust build up etc) and can typically be cleared by using an air hose to blow the blockage clear.

2) excessive water can be an indicator that you may have a slow leak in the refrigerant system. reduced pressures will lower the temperature of the coil causing it to condense more water, more frequently. While you might enjoy the seeming better performance of the unit, if there is a leak it will eventually reach a point where the water will freeze(cutting off the air flow so no cooling) and eventually stop working altogether. Have a certified technician check your system for leaks. Remember that most rooftop units use R-22 refrigerant, not R-134a automotive refrigerant. The wrong refrigerant in the system can be very damaging to components and seals, and can cause the unit to function improperly.

Tip

Changing oil in lower unit on an outboard motor.


the oil in the lower gear case in a outboard motor should be changed every fall when you take the boat out or once a year if you live where you can boat all year. when you look at the lower unit down by the propeller you will find two screws one lower and one upper. take the upper one out first and check the nylon gasket and replace if worn. put a coffee can or and oil collector under the moter and take out the lower plug. if possible do this after the moter has been run recently, but never run an outboard out of the water unless you have the garden house hooked up to ear muffs over the water intake sites!
the oil will slowly drain out. if the oil looks like chocolate milk it probably has water in it which means its leaking at the upper or lower seals and needs a pressure check and possibly seal replacemant. after all the oil is out (30 minutes or so) its time to refill it. for less than ten bucks you can but a simple device that lets you pump the oil in instead of squezzing it out of the tube. you attach it to the lower drain plug hole and the to a quart of the proper fluid for your motor. make sure you buy the oil to match your type of outboard.
pump the oil or squeze it it from the bottom until it starts to come out the top hole. make sure all the bubbles are out then put the upper plug back in with good gasket, remove the oil tube or appicator from the bottom hole and quickly relace the bottom plug as well with a good gasket.
thats it and you are good to go for the season. if you see oil leaking out the prop shaft or at one of the plugs you need to attend to that soon. tip remember chocolate milk oil or actual water means a seal leak and must be repaired.it may just be a .25 nylon seal for one of the plugs is bad! any unusual noises of difficult or loud shifting can also means problems with the lower unit gears etc and its always cheaper to fix the problem sooner than later.
happy boating!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a 1990 Johnson GT 150 and am trying to remove lower unit to repair/replace water pump. I've removed the 5. 9/16" bolts including the one under the torque tab and the 5/8" bolt but have read I also...


The pin at the top of the shift rod in front of the intake manifold just below the carburetors. When you take the lower unit off there should be a round rubber seal that was on the shift rod between the lower motor cover and the steering arm. Be sure to put this seal back in place after you install the gearcase. It is just a flat piece of rubber about 1/4" thick with a Joe in the center me a slit from the hole to the outside edge so you can insert it on the shift rod after the gearcase is in place. This seal prevents water being forced up the tube the shift rid goes through. Some running conditions can cause water to be forced up this tube and into the lower motor cover just below the air box. If this water is drawn into the air of it will be flow into the motor along with the air and fuel causing serious engine damage.

Freezer is cooling normal. the lower fridge unit is not cooling enough. facing this problem since a month.


Apart from checking the setting on the regulator, I would suggest seeing if the door seal gasket is leaking. Look for water condensation around the door frame. Get a weather thermometer and put in the fridge and check after a few hours. Should be around 4deg C.

Ok. guys. i am losing coolant. it is not showing up in the oil and i have no external leaks. i did replace the head gasket and all associated gaskets about two months ago. also have changed the upper and...


If the coolant is leaking at the head gasket or the intake manifold gasket slowly, then new gaskets will have to be installed. The bubbles coming up is a bad sign that the seal of the coolant system is bad or it's overheating the coolant to the point that it boils over.

The overheating may be due to air or vapor in the cooling system not allowing fluid to flow freely.

Did you put a 50/50 concentration of coolant to water into the cooling system?

Also, check the fan to see if it is turning on when the car is at operating temperature at idle.

May need to be flushed out and new coolant installed to increase cooling efficiency.

Good luck on this repair.

Water is not going through the engine when operating in the sea. On land with muffs on and hose pipe attached water is forced through the engine o.k.


Are you sure that your impeller intake is submerged when you are on the boat? If it works with muffs, it should work in the water too, unless you don't have your lower unit deep enough.

Water not going in moter ,white smoke blowing from rhe tail pipe


Hi, If water is Not going your cooling system, check : - cooling liquid level ( it should in normal level) - air lock in your cooling system ( You can run your ca for minutes then top up liquid to disable this problem) - water pump ( it should working normal and has no leaks on its seal)
White smoke blowing, please check : - Valve seals for leaks - Oil seals for leaks - Compression on your combustion chamber
You will need a basic knowledge of car system to do above tasks.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Leaking


I just found a service release number for my Frigidaire dishwasher that says it applies to Serial numbers TH632 through serial number TH737 made in 2007 for a replacement kit for the door seal at the bottom of the door. The bottom door seal has been changed, adding side seals that restrict the water surge from the center spray arm. The part number for the new seal is p/n 154588201. This seal can be replaced without removing the dishwasher or either of the door panels.
The seal is located on the bottom of the inner door panel and appears as a cream colored flexible
rubber blade bonded to a milky white colored plastic strip. To remove and properly install
replacement follow the instructions carefully.
1. Replacing this seal can be accomplished without disconnecting power from the unit.
Always use extra care when electrical power is present while serving an appliance.
2. Open door all the way down and remove lower rack. Set rack aside to a safe location.
3. Locate the seal on the bottom of inner door panel. Facing front of unit, the right side of the
seal can be pulled down slightly to facilitate removal.
4. Pull seal straight into the tub from right side.
5. With seal removed, and before installing replacement seal, locate the channel in inner door
panel that the seal mounts into. Locating this channel before installing the replacement can
make this procedure easier.

6. Place the new seal on a flat surface and measure from the bottom of the seal, (See Figure
1 to determine bottom of seal), up 3/8 "of an inch and place a mark with a pen or marker on
both ends (See Figure 2). If needed, scribe a straight line between these two marks this
will give you a guide when installing seal into the inner door panel.
7. The seal can only be installed one way. The end that holds this seal into the inner door
panel has a ½ inch notch cut in the right side. This notch allows the seal to be installed
around the end of the inner door channel that holds the seal.
8. Line up the seal along the bottom of the inner door panel and start from the right side, push
the seal into the door channel to the line marked in step #6.
9. With seal in place close the door, the tub will align the seal as needed.
10. Reinstall lower rack and operate unit to check for leaks.
If leaks continue to occur at the bottom corners, order Splash shield kit 154701001 for
dishwasher.

Before installing the kit remove and reinstall the lower door seal. To install the lower seal make
sure you measure up from the bottom of the seal 3/8 of an inch and mark the seal, do this on
both ends. This locates how far down the seal needs to be before closing the door. Do not
install this seal without measuring it first. After the lower door seal has been re-installed then
install the splash shields according to the instructions accompanying with the kit.
