Locate the drain pipe from the air handler on the outside of the house. It is probably near the condenser(outside unit).
Use a shop vac to vacuum out the drain line.

The difference between thermal fuse and thermostat


Thermal fuse is a heat-sensitive safety feature that shuts down system when overheating is detected.
In electrical wiring, the thermal fuse reacts to high temperature caused by too many amps on the electric circuit. When temperature exceeds the fuse amp rating, then the fuse trips and cuts power to electric circuit.
Example of thermal fuse is a household circuit breaker.
Gas water heaters have a different type of thermal fuse located in the combustion chamber or on the combustion chamber door, and also inside a copper probe inside water tank. Water heater thermal fuses will trip when water temperature exceeds fuse rating, or when heat inside the combustion chamber exceeds temperature rating of fuse. This action will cut off gas supply to water heater.
So a thermal fuse is a safety feature.

Thermostat is not a safety feature.
Thermostat is a measuring tool.
Thermostats measure temperature.
Example of thermostat is outdoor thermometer, or cooking thermometer, or Heat-AC control located on wall inside house.
Thermostats can give a simple temperature reading, or they can cause a separate control to turn on-off depending on application.
For example thermostat on Heat-AC will read room temperature, and when temperature exceeds setting, this triggers a switch that turns Heat-AC on-off.

Many appliances have both thermal safety fuse and thermostat.
Take for example a gas water heater. A copper tube extends into the water tank. Inside the copper tube are 2 things: A thermostat probe to measure water temperature, and a thermal fuse called an ECO for energy cut off. The ECO is a thermal fuse, and is a safety feature.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Gas-valve-ECO2-358.jpg
The thermostat reads temperature of water, and turns water heater on-off to keep water hot. A person can adjust water temperature by adjusting the thermostat dial on front of water heater.
However if the thermostat fails, or some other problem occurs, and water inside the tank gets hotter than 180 degrees, then the ECO or thermal fuse will trip. When the thermal fuse trips, this turns off gas to the water heater so water cannot get any hotter. The safety device prevents water heater explosion. The water heater must be repaired since this particular thermal fuse cannot be re-used afterwards, and must be replaced.

My unit stopped working after less than 1 year . It will occ start up dor a few secs and then stop again??


Hi,

The tank may be full. Your dehumidifier has a safety device that turns off the dehumidifier when the water tank is full. Usually the tank itself either presses against a switch or there's a device connected to the tank that triggers a switch when the tank is in place and full.


If you've emptied the tank and the unit doesn't run, inspect the place where the tank rests to see if there's a switch or mechanism that's not being activated. You may be able to turn it on with a simple flick of your finger.

Good luck

Our system continues to give a 90 code reading even though we have a big enough filter pump to push enough water through the system. Everything is tight and the system is clean. how do we correct this...


Code 90 indicates that the water flow rate is not high enough for the system to operate properly. This is measured by a white plastic piece hinged from the top of the pipe. As water flows by the plastic piece gets pushed back and up against the top of the pipe so that it touches a sensor. A couple of solutions are as follows or a combination of these:
1) make sure that all pipes and filters are clean and clear. Leaves or other stuff will slow the water flow.
2) check that the clorinator is clear of any blockage or dirt.
3) unscrew the flow meter and pull out to check that the hinge is clean and the plastic piece moves freely.
4) when you put the flow meter back in place try turning it ever so slightly which might make a difference. This has worked sometimes for me.
5) make sure that the clorinator is level. I tilted my unit so that the inlet side is slightly higher than the outlet as an experiment and this works as well since I was trying to get the flow valve to travel less distance.(it's a geometry issue)
6) make sure there is no air stuck in the lines. Try lifting the pipes/tubes to move air out and make sure you bleed your pump to ensure that it is full of water and there is no air trapped here that would reduce flow.
7) try taking any nozzle off the hose going into the pool. These may slow the flow coming into the pool and cause back pressure in the pipes.
8) I have a solar panel with a bypass valve. The clorinator only works when I run the water using the bypass valve so that no water runs through the solar panel. Try running all water only through clorinator with no other devices in line to slow the flow or produce any restrictions.
9) Try running the clorinator but take out the pump filter as an experiment. The filter may need replacing. Taking the filter out should tell you if this is the case if the clorinator works without the filter in place.
10) As a last resort check the flow rate requirements for the clorinator and on the pump you have. The pump may be undersized.

Little Giant Condensate pump runs for 1 sec when res not full


Is there a check valve in the pumps discharge fitting? If there is it may be stuck open or broken allowing some of the water to return to the reservoir once the pump shuts off which then may lead to the brief cycle between full cycles.

If there is not one, install one to keep any water from backing back into the reservoir and that should stop the short runs.
