The drain hole is stopped up,remove it from the window,and it`s shell,and clean it out with a water hose,be sure to remove all debris from inside the unit,and take notice around the drain,and the fan unit.Make sure there is a good tilt on the unit tilting out side,not in,so the water will go out the drain.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

What is the minimum vertical vent distant from top of water heater to top of cap. Water heater is stand alone outside furnishing water for military force provider showers unit.


Generally 40 feet for ordinary atmospheric-vented household water heater...
Straight run to roof.
Atmospheric means no power vent... just hot air drafting upwards
Google search: gas vent height code

Atmospheric venting code depends on 4 basic factors:
Diameter of vent--- bigger vent, more draft
How many water heaters are connected to same vent
BTU per hour rating of water heater-- the more gas that is burned per hour, the bigger the vent needs to be
How straight the pipe is -- are there any horizontal or lateral runs

http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bosch_Checking_the_draft.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/checking-the-draft2.pdf

Other factors can include
-wind conditions... higher wind across top of vent pipe on roof can reduce draft, and cause downdraft that blows deadly CO into same room as water heater
-vent termination near high walls, trees, high roof peak etc will reduce draft or cause downdraft
-amount of incoming air supply... if water heater is inside a closed room, then there is no air to draft up the pipe, burner will shut down or burn lazy yellow instead of clear blue
-stuff piled up around water heater that obstructs air intake
-dirty air intake screen that reduces air intake
-vent fans inside same room as water heater that pull air down the vent and cause reduction in water heater draft
-generally elbows reduce draft by 10%
-vent cannot terminate near any window door or air intake for another gas appliance
-bird build nest on top of vent pipe after vent termination falls off
-highly acidic gas by-product causes large amount of condensation inside pipe that burns hole in pipe or drips down and damages combustion parts...blower and inline condensate trap and drain might be required
-multiple water heaters installed on same vent line.

Why does the air conditioner shut off and not start back up for extended periods of time


Does the fan keep running? If it does take it outside and clean the condenser coil and evap coil with a water hose. use a spray nozzle when doing this. See if this helps.

Maytag 5000 btu air conditioner, model # m3x05f2a-c, is making gurgling sounds and spraying water, please help?


I could not find that model number listed, but no matter. It sounds like your drain line is plugged with something and you need to clear the line. What has always worked best for me is a guitar string because it is flexible enough not to damage anything but rigid enough to work on cloggs.

What is the power draw (in watts or amps) of the Kenmore 5300BTU room air conditioner? The unit is being powered off the grid by an inverter, and I think the user chose too light weight an inverter for the...


5.8 amps. see page 9 (5300 btu is considered a 6000 BTU, 4800 is considered 5000 btu, sorta like a 2x4 ain't really a 2x4 LOL)
You cannot run an ac on an inverter, not enough juice to get it started.

Top rack does not wash dishes.


Possible causes of spray arm inefficiency:
Loading large or tall items in the lower basket which stops the arm revolving.
Upper spray arm split along seam.
Upper spray arm blocked.
Under dosing of powder causing foam and reducing upper spray arm water pressure.
Blocked strainers reducing water to circulating pump, therefore reducing upper spray arm water pressure.
inefficient wash motor impellor (faulty)

Flashing code 90 .


The 90 error code is caused by two conditions:

1) the unit is under heating the water (not hitting the set temperature)
2) the fan is encountering resistance to air flow, which causes it to over correct

The most common causes for this conditions are:
1) insufficient BTU supplied to the unit
2) clogged fan motor or vent
3) insufficient makeup air
4) improperly installed exhaust vent

Kenmore Ultra Wash 3 Leaking


Got a possible solution from a brilliant guy named Jake on another website and thought I would post it back here.

"Check the door vent on the inner side of the door, that should just snap out, I have seen those clog and start making more pressure inside to make it leak from the bottom. Jake"

I checked mine and got a nasty surprise. Who knew it could get so dirty.
