Hello. yes. this is a common item. Remove it and take it to your local hardware store to get a replacement. Also pick up a tube of plumber's pipe dope to coat the threads before you install the new one. This will prevent any leaks. Joe

please rate my answer as very helpful. Joe

I have a fuel leak at the quick connect on top of the fuel tank under the rear seat. I have replaced the fuel line and it still leaks. There is a plastic piece on top of the tank, should that be replaced...


I solved a similar problem with a Nissan. Under rear seat is a plate. Remove plate and you find the plastic delivery and return pipes with clip on connectors. Ideally you buy and replace there connectors but here in Africa they were not available. I simply cut off the pipe as close to the connector as possible. Then heated the end in boiling water and pressed it over the connector male side. It cools and shrinks and never leaked since. If I had a hose clamp, I would have added that for extra security because the delivery pipe is under high pressure from the electric pump in the tank( fuel injection models) most Japanese cars have very similar configurations and this plan can generally be made to worl

How to bypass air conditioning compressor on 2002 ford taurus?


You would need to replace the compressor with an A/C illiminator bracket/pulley, you cannot just put a shorter belt as it would still make contact with the a/c pulley, at least on a 3.0L OHV version.

Gas is barely flowing-used to hear hiss before I lit. Tried replacing pressure valve and got a new tank of gas. Also disassembled manifold and cleaned out all burners.


I had the same problem years ago with an old charbroil and ended up fixing by replacing the threaded female gas connector on the regulator with one of the old style male inside threaded type. This is the connector that connects the hose/regulator to the propane tank.

My danby air conditioner/dehumidifier model dpac 8399-4 leaks water all over the floor and never fills the holding tanks what can I do to fix this problem?


Probably needs cleaning. I assume it is on a level surface. Water drips from the evaporator coil into a collection tray of some type and then drains into the holding tank, this tray is either broken or the outlet is plugged.
Good Luck,
Gilsh

External tank not filling


I recently encountered the same issue. First off, with the external tank installed is there an icon on the display panel indicating the tank is installed?

No? Then the two sensors are not picking up the magnets in the the "arms" on the back of the tank. It's a poor design for sure, on my unit the tank does not sit flush enough to the back of the AC, if I held the tank firmly to the back the icon would come on. I just used a bit of cardboard at the bottom of the support tray to press the tank firmly to the back of the AC.

Theory is as the external tank fills up, water will run into the "arms" and raise the magnets tripping the switch which tells the unit it needs emptying. But the magnets in the arms are not strong enough if they are not close enough to the sensors. So my cardboard solution lasted only one tank.

I ended up getting some flat neodymium magnets (that I scavenged out of a hard drive), and taped to the sensor that had the gap. I wouldn't recommend doing this to both sensors since it would eventually overfill, only one sensor needs to "trip" for the compressor to turn off.

If you answered yes to the first question (the bucket icon is there), then it's most likely the pump not working on the internal reservoir, or something related to that. Can't help you there...
