WHERE IS THE DRAIN FOR MODEL 52CEC309351AA


Find the drain outlet and use a wet vacuum on the drain line to pull gunk clogging the drain line out. You may need to reclean on more periodic basis. Problems with drain line gunk buildup vary with location airborn contaminants. Your water leaking could also be not a drain problem, but an air leakage by the seals in the unit installation. If unit is not sealed properly, warm moist air can leak in past bad or missing seals and come in contact with cool surfaces and condense water out and leak out of unit.
Hope this helps

Fix water leak in water dispenser


Water leaking inside it
  1. Check the lines to your dispenser
If the lines to your dispenser are broken or damaged you will need to replace them.
  1. Damaged drain pan
If your drain pan has holes or cracks it will also need to be replaced.
  1. Clogged drain
If you experience any clogged drains, they must also be unclogged or replace. If you experience this at the ceiling of your unit it can be attributed to a clog in the freezer section. Remove the divider and let the insulation thaw out and dry.

Leaking water out on the floor instead of going out the duct work


The water goes out of the drain line, usually a 3/4" PVC tube. You ill need to find the end of the drain line and put a wet-vac vacuum cleaner over it and **** the clog out of it. You have a clogged drain line.

Our A/C unit when running, the drain water isn now backing up and leaking over the side in our basement. we've never had this problem before.


Hello, this usually indicates a clogged condensate line or cracked condensate pan. Try using a wet/dry by attaching one end of it to the otlet of the comdensate line, the suction pressure should dislodge the clog. If the line appears clean the the pan is cracked and will require a technician to come out and fix it.

There is water leaking out from the bottom of my furnace. It leaks whenever the ac is running.


Hello, sounds like a clogged condensate line or a faulty condensate pump if the unit has one. Cleaning the drain line should fix the problem.

Turned off the hot water to fix a leaking tap. now the tap has no hot or cold water and the hot water tank valve is leaking?


It sounds like two problems.
Problem 1) Clog inside faucet or clog inside pipes at faucet
Remove supply tubes leading to faucet and see if problem is inside pipes or inside faucet.
My bet is clog inside faucet.

If you have galvanized pipe that meets copper pipe, this can be trouble spot.

Problem 2) Water heater leak ... you say tank valve is leaking? Is that cold-water shut-off valve? Or tank drain valve? Or TP valve?

If cold water shut-off is leaking, then replace shut off.

If tank drain valve is leaking, then check if plastic valve is cracked. If drain valve is cracked, then replace with a brass valve from Home Depot. If plastic valve breaks off, then use hammer and screwdriver to gently chip out the broken plastic valve. New valve threads need teflon tape to seal pipe. If valve is just dripping, then put garden-hose cap over end of valve and screw down tight.

If TP valve is leaking, then replace with same temperature and pressure rating.
New TP valve threads need teflon tape to seal pipe.

Problem 3) If pressure is low all over house:
Buy pressure gauge at hardware store that screws onto hose connection.

Test pressure on outdoor spigot.
Open faucet and check if pressure drops. This says if problem is inside pipes that enter house.

Test pressure on water heater drain valve.
This says if pressure problem is before -or- after water heater.

If problem is before the water heater, then shut-off valve located on cold water line is suspect.
If problem is after water heater, it could be in hot water outflow pipe on top of water heater, or a nearby elbow.

Remove hot water line leading from water heater and check pressure. This says if problem is where hot water leaves tank.
Read articles above about clogs inside water lines.

Bottom fills with water, line not clogged


This means that the outlet valve or the drain motor is faulty or their is a leak in the pipe between them and the machine.

Whirlpool Custom Series refrigerator leaks -Model ET18JKXSN05


It sounds like the line you found is for draining the water from the defrost cycle. It should drain the water from melting the ice into the pan at the bottom so it will evaporate. Sounds like its being clogged is the cause of the water in your fridge.

My Culligan RO faucet has an ''air gap'' leak. How do I clear the clogged debris causing the water to constantly run? Culligan told me that the Faucet/Air gap is clogged. Need to dislodge the debris.


Normally when it leaks out the weep hole the drain line is plugged under the sink....turn off the ro to where it's not making water, disconnect the drain hose and flush it out....make sure the adapter that's connected to the drain pipe is still lined up with the hole if it was moved the water can't get to the drain.
