Water leaking out of the front vents

There is water leaking out of the top cap of my MasterCool unit (don't know the model #), along the front of the cooler pads and out through the vent panel. The rubber strips on the underside of the top cap that rest on the pads have come off, which may be the problem. Is there a replacement part # for these? Can they be replaced with anything else?

SOURCE: New Mastercool pads smell bad

The cellulose pads in a mastercool are glued together and usually the adhesive is what you smell. It may take a while for it to go away. Strange as it may seem, as the pads get more mineralization and you use it more the smell will go away. Do not use a cooler for your whole house without plenty of exhaust through a window or an updux. Coolers work best when there is plenty of freely moving air.

SOURCE: high speed does not work but low speed does

If your motor only works on low speed and not on high speed first check to see if you have the proper voltage to high speed. Check with a voltmeter or multimeter, check from common on the motor to high speed on the motor at the switch. If you have the proper voltage then you have an open winding on high speed and the motor needs replaced. If you don’t have the proper voltage or any volts, then the switch is bad and needs replaced. This also will be the same if, medium speed won’t work and low speed does.

Is it a side draft or downdraft cooler? My instructions simply say to cover the unit, disconnect the power and drain the water for winter. They don't suggest removing or cleaning the pads until spring. If you're ductwork also is connected to your furnace, and you don't have a cookie sheet(piece of sheet metal that fits in a slot beneath mastercool unit or along the inside if it's a side draft cooler) then besides covering the entire unit you cn probably cover the blower, also called the squirrel cage, with a canvas cover.

My reliance sta-kleen 502 is leaking. The water is dripping on top of the pilot light, extinguishing the flame . Please advise me with step by step instructions to diagnose and attempt fix this myself....


If you have a leaking water heater there is a serious problem.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-leaking.html
Page shows how to limp along on a leaking water heater if your water heater needs replacement.

One of three things is causing the water:
1) Loose water connection on top of tank that is dripping down inside tank >> check pipes on top of tank.

2) The vent is clogged or not working correctly causing condensation inside flue pipe.
Condensation water is dripping back down inside tank.
Problem means possible CO poisoning if gas is not venting.
Look at vent pipe to see if joints are corroded.
Use long fireplace match > light match and put into draft hood at top of tank and see if smoke goes up.
Put hand at draft hood opening when water heater turns on to see if vent gas enters home.
Do same test when furnace turns on to see if furnace vent is pushing back into water heater.
Does water heater vent inside same pipe as furnace? You may need to set up separate vent for water heater if furnace gasses are pushing back into home.
Check furnace vent for obstructions.
Look at vent stack top of home to see if hood is in place.
Check if bird nest is built inside warm vent pipe.
Improper flue is top priority for getting fixed so vent gasses properly escape home.
You may have to call a plumber.
Professional plumbing forum:
http://www.thetankatwaterheaterrescue.com/forums/forum3/

3) Your water heater is rusted out.
A rusted tank has to be replaced.
It cannot be repaired.
However, before replacing tank, you do not want a tank failure where tank ruptures and water runs inside home until water is shut off.
This will cause major damage.
Protect yourself first.
Turn off water valve above tank.
Move gas knob to 'pilot' so burner is not heating water.
Open tub spout on hot side to relieve pressure on tank so it will not rupture.

Now you're protected.
Link above shows how to limp along on failed tank until you can replace heater.

You need a new gas water heater from Lowes or Home Depot
Look at label on side of you tank for gallons and btu's of your water heater.
Measure height to flue pipe so you get same height water heater, so pipes don't have to be changed.
You need a pipe wrench and teflon tape which will be wrapped on each pipe thread when pipes are reassembled.

Step1) Drain water heater using valve at bottom of tank.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-will-not-drain.html

2) Turn off gas valve going into heater.
When gas valve is perpendicular to gas line, then gas is off.
Dissemble gas line to water heater.

3) Disconnect flue pipe and support flue pipe with wire so it doesn't not fall down. Flue pipe joints should be held together at each joint with 3 screws.

4) Turn off water. Shut off valve is on COLD side.
Disconnect water pipes.

5) Move old water heater out of way.

6) Set new water heater in place. Put water heater in drip pan.

7) Connect water pipes >> cold goes to side marked cold.
Hot to hot.
Buy new flexible water connector pipes at home center for easy installation of water pipes.

8) Connect gas line exactly as it was connected before.
Home center sells flexible gas line connector for easy installation of gas line.
To test for gas leak after installation, mix liquid soap with water and put around gas line joints to see if there are bubbles.
Natural gas has less pressure than water lines, so gas pipes are easy to seal with ordinary wrench.

9) install TP pipe that runs to floor. Use old one off old heater.

10) Fill tank completely with water until water is coming out of tub spout.

11) Turn on gas, and light pilot as shown in manual.
New gas heater sometimes have small water leak when first fired up, so ignore a bit of water.

12) Save water heater manual like it is gold, and read everything in manual.

2in.of water standing in bottom when finished


Most likely a clog, either along the drain hose, or more likely, actually in the air gap vent. Disconnect the drain hose from the dishwasher and place a bucket under it. Run the drain cycle. This should clear any clog along the drain line. Remove the air gap vent from the top of the sink and disconnect the other hose. Remove the small cap at the top of the vent by pressing the small clips on opposite sides of each other and lift the cap out. Using either a strong flow of water, or, a thin, long-blade screwdriver, remove any debris from the two hose connectors. (Problem is most likely in the smaller hose connector which is preventing water from flowing over to the other connector to drain out). So, during operation, water goes up the small drain hose, but can't go any further and water remains in the dishwasher.

Clearing the air vent cap/filter should solve your problem.

We bought a Bonaire cooling system at yard sale, it leaks water after it is running for awhile, plus it sprays water out the front


I take it this is a window Unit , the water is coming in the room because the Unit has to be pitched about 1/2 into the back ( outside ) or the drain line is clogged ( dirt) stopping water from flowing to condenser ( that cools the coil)
The water is condensation from warm air hitting the cold coil .

My mastercool blows out hot air upstairs


The one on top probably has no water in it or the pump is not working. Look closely at the front to ascertain if water is being pumped.If not turn electric off and remove one of the side panels with a 1/4 driver. In the reservior there should be water. If not you need to turn water on to unit or adjust/replace float. Also is it's warmer than 100 degrees outside you're unit might be fine...it has limitations.

Dish drawer leaks Fisher Paykel


When water accumulates in the bottom it triggers an error code and it keeps running. There is a water sensor in the bottom. I pull out the bottom drawer, mop up the water and use a hair dryer to dry the water (the more you mop up the less you need the hair dryer). Be careful to not get any of the plastic too hot. Kill the power before messing with the unit. The first time I did this it took 20 minutes to dry out. I have gotten more proficient and it take about 5 minutes now.

I had a water leak which was due to the rinse agent cap not being completely sealed. Water leaked out of a small hole in the front (I'm guessing an air vent but don't know for sure) and flooded the bottom.

I also had a leak due to having too tall a dish in the drawer and the top not sealing. I currently have a leak on the top drawer of unknown origin, but the bottom drawer still works.
Hope this helps.
