    Air conditioner does not seem to be using extracted condisation as it is supposed to.
    I have to empty tank frequently now and I did not have to before. .also there is some debris and (stuff) in the condisation being extracted.
    There has been no change in humidity.

    This what I thought was the problem . I will dismantle the machine and clean it up.



    Thank you

It sounds as though the evaporator coil is needing to be cleaned. Also make sure your air filter is clean and properly in place. A dirty air filter and/or coil will decrease the amount of air passing through the evaporator coil. This will cause the coil to develop frost and sometimes ice. Most humidifiers are equipped with a defrost function that normally allows for the fan to continue to run while the compressor is shut down for a brief time to allow the coil to thaw. The result is water. The debris is an indication that contamination exists.
Clean the filter and coil and you should be fine. :-)

Where do you oil a ridged 350chd nailgun


With that particular brad nailer, oil is not required during use (perhaps the mechanism has a teflon or similar coating). But, the straight finish nailer definitely requires "air tool oil" and a small container was supplied. IIRC, the manual for the finish nailer states that a drop or two should be added via the air connection before each use. I presume that if I'm going to be using it a lot during the day, one should probably do the same, periodically.

This really doesn't have anything to do with whether your compressor is lubricated or non-lubricated, as I doubt that there would be enough oil carried downstream into the system (using a lubricated compressor) to do the tool any good. Basically the operating mechanism of the nailer needs to be lubricated to prevent wear.

As previously mentioned by the other poster, adding a few drops of oil to the tool's air connection will also provide some corrosion protection. But, your compressor should always be checked to ensure that condensation does not build up in the tank. As the air is compressed it will heat and condensation will occur. If the environment is humid, the condensate may be significant.

Again check you manual for specifics, as too much oil can well blow onto the surface you are nailing.

What does convection in a weather forecast mean?


[img src="http://www.weatherquestions.com/convection.gif" alt="atmospheric convection forming a cloud"> What is convection? "Convection" has several, related meanings in weather....but it always involves rising air. It usually refers to "moist convection", where the excess water vapor in rising air parcels condenses to form a cloud.

The heat released through this condensation can help to sustain the convection by warming the air further and making it rise still higher, which causes more water vapor to condense, so the process feeds on itself.

But convection can also be dry, as occurs on a sunny day over the desert, or in more humid regions early in the day before the convection has become strong enough to form clouds. The sun warms the ground, and convective air currents help to remove the excess heat from the surface. Dry convection also occurs during the day even when clouds are not forming...you just can't see it.

Air conditioner wont work


When the STOP indicator light turns on, the internal water tank has filled with condensed water and the air conditioner will turn off automatically. You can drain the internal water tank by removing the plug on the back of the unit, be ready for a lot of water to come out of the unit. The unit will shut down when the water pan is full. This condition may occur either when the unit is operated in high humidity conditions, or when the unit is being operated in HEATMODE, since the auto-evaporation function will not work in the heating mode. I hope this helps, have a great day, Andy K.

Excess frost and condensation


Could be that it is not getting a good seal when the door is shut. Check for obstructions causing that and check the door seal to see if it needs to be replaced.

AIR CONDITIONER IS MAKING A NOISE LIKE ICE IS IN IT BUT IT IS WAT


All A/C units will produce condensation from time to time, depending on relative humidity. Your problem seems to be an accumulation of this condensation which has no way to escape the unit. Most likely the drain port is clogged with debris. Clean the debris and the unit should drain normally.

Tank full after 5 hrs of use.


The amount of water (condensate) that your unit produces is directly related to the setting you have the unit set to and the relative humidity of the air/

That being said it has been a much more humid summer this year almost everywhere, so I'd venture a guess that your A/C is working very well, based on the extra moisture (condensate) that it is pulling out of the air.

A/C and Dehumidifiers both tend to run longer and produce more condensate when having to deal with excessive humidity. But, that's what these machines were designed to do - extract moisture from the air where they are placed to keep us cool and dry feeling!

Enjoy the cool air and remember, Winter is coming!

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Honeywell furnace humidifier thermostat & other


sounds like to me you have a condensation pump attached to your hvac system. this can be used to pump water produced during the cooling of your house when in the a/c mode. if you have a typical bypass humidifier, you will have excess water running past the water panel and it must be sent to a drain of some kind. I would imagine the pump is being used to get your bypass water to the drain. another scenario may be that you have a 90% condensing furnace. if your exhaust pipe for the furnace is made out of pcv pipe, it is a condensing gas furnace. it will produce water when it is running. the water if from the combustion gases being condensed in the secondary heat exchanger. this is normal. some condensing gas furnaces will draw combustion air from inside the house and some will have a second pvc pipe that is used to pulll combustion air from the outside of the house. either way, it is not dehumidifying your house. the humidifier should be able to keep up if it is runnng properly. you should have water running out the bottom drain of the humidifier any time the fan on your furnace is running and the humidistat is calling for humidity. if this is not happening, it is not wired properly.

Condensation in view finder glass


Condensation usually occurs from the camera being taken from a dry, cool, place to a warm, humid place, or visa versa, in a short period of time (example: from a hotel room with A/C to the outside on a warm humid day).

Try putting the camera in a plastic bag when you know you're going to take it between two locations like that, as the air in the plastic bag will slowly adjust to the new temperature, reducing condensation

Condensation


When pouring a chilled beverage into a glass, water droplets may form on the surface of the glass. This happens because the air around the glass is rapidly cooled down, and moisture in the air adheres to the surface of the glass. This phenomenon is called condensation. This kind of condensation may also occur with camcorders. If you continue to use the camcorder with condensation on it, it could damage the camcorder. Condensation may form on the camcorder in the following cases: (1) When being moved from a cold place to a warm place (2) When being used in a rapidly-heated cold room (3) When being used in a humid room (4) When being moved from an air-conditioned room to a warm, humid place When condensation occurs: The camcorder stops operating automatically after its power lamp flashes. The warning message "CONDENSATION HAS BEEN DETECTED" appears and the condensation-warning icon below starts flashing. Condensation-warning icon If a cassette is loaded, the warning message "CONDENSATION HAS BEEN DETECTED" and "REMOVE THE CASSETTE" appear and the cassette-warning icon starts flashing. Cassette-warning icon If a cassette is loaded in the camcorder, remove the cassette immediately and leave the cassette compartment open. If condensation is detected, the POWER switch and cassette-removing switch will be activated. Leaving the cassette in the camcorder may damage the tape. A cassette should not be loaded into the camcorder when condensation is detected. How to avoid condensation Unload the cassette and place the camcorder in an airtight plastic bag when moving to locations where temperatures vary. Allow time for the camcorder to adjust to temperature changes slowly before removing it from the bag. Resuming use Allow at least one hour before resuming use; more time may be required for heavier condensation. When condensation has been eliminated, turn the camcorder on. After the condensation-warning icon stops flashing, wait one hour before resuming use.
