Got a trauma ultrastore water heater in my bailey senator caravan water is coming out from either overflow/pressure value or maybe a leak can anyone advise on how to try and sort this out


There is no overflow pipe on the water heater. There is an overflow/vent pipe on the fresh water storage tank though. It is normal for this to leak water at times.

Its possible you might have some type of winterizing hot water tank drain. But that should have a valve on it. If you have such a valve it should be shut off and not leaking.

That said we move on to the water heater. This is assuming you have a water heater leak. Or a leak with something connected right at the water heater.

You could expand this concept to move on to other pressured parts of your plumbing system to troubleshoot and isolate.

I would remove the pressure relief valve and rig up a fitting you can screw in. Set up with a pressure gauge and a air filler fitting like is on an inter-tube/tire. Some plumbing stores sell them already made up.

You might have to custom adapt this using some rubber hose rated for air compressors. Using barbed to threaded fittings and hose clamps to withstand pressure.

Install your air valve/gauge in place of the relief valve. If you have bypass valves this is a little easier. Close off the bypass valves to isolate the tank from the plumbing system.

If your plumbing set up has no bypass valves, disconnect the inlet and outlet plumbing lines. Screw in appropriate sized plugs in the two tank holes. Use teflon tape and make sure they are secured. (All easier said than done).

With an air compressor or tire pump pressurize the tank to 50psi. Soap all fittings, and your plugs, to insure you have no leaks around anything screwed in. Let this sit overnight. If your pressure drops off you have a leak. If your pressure holds I would suspect the relief valve that you removed.

You could move your air valve/gauge set up to the water inlet or outlet pipe and reinstall the relief valve, to test the relief valve. Pressure up to 50psi and soap everything again. Let it set overnight again.

If you suspect the relief valve before any of this troubleshooting starts, you might just start by installing the air valve/gauge in the inlet or outlet right from the get go.

Tanks often get pin holes on the bottom as they start to corrode through. Hard to visually find in many cases. Pressurizing with air will tell you whether you have a leak for sure. Not get everything wet in the process. Using common sense and a process of elimination, you should find the problem. There are also drain valves and in some cases anode rods that are screwed into the tank and may be a source of the leak? Soap all of these while troubleshooting.

The image is my setup. It is a little more fancy than described. I have a little valve off a T so I can use the little turn wheel and open the valve to relieve pressure without unscrewing everything. That also beats holding in the little spring loaded needle valve of the "tire filler" valve shown sticking out the right side. But I think you will get the idea of the basic concept?

The black hose that drains the water out has come off and draining water straight out as it fills. I cannot for the life of me figure out where it connects to. Any help would be great!


The black discharge hose (the J shaped one) is connected to the output side of the discharge pump inside the washer. It's likely the hose has come off.
  • first, unplug the washer.
  • Shut off the hot and cold water faucets to the washer.
  • Pull the washer away so you have access to the back.
  • Remove screws holding the back panel in place.
  • Remove panel.
  • Examine the hose where it attaches to the pump. Look for cracks, holes or broken ends.
  • Examine the clamp attaching the hose. Is it broken or worn?
  • Replace any of the above hoses and/or clamps if faulty with hardware comparable with your model. Re-assemble in reverse sequence of dis-assembly.
  • Attach hot/cold water lines.
  • Ensure ALL excess water has been removed before plugging washer in. Ensure ground wire is attached!
  • Plug washer in and start cycle. Examine for leaks.

Were do i get the manuel for model number ph3 12r03 is the model number were or how do I drain the water and can you send me a manual


Here is the link to the manual:

http://s3.amazonaws.com/szmanuals/b0348062b23e23cd40550b61e1dc5f43


Here are those particular instructions:


Compressor Indicator


The " " icon will light up on the control panel display when the compressor turns on. The " " icon will turn off when the compressor shuts off.

Emergency Condensate Holding Tank


When the room temperature is low and the indoor humidity is high, the air conditioner may not be able to evaporate some of the moisture fast enough. When this happens, the water will accumulate in an emergency condensate tank inside the unit. Once the emergency condensate tank is full, the unit will automatically shut off and the " " will appear on the control panel display. To empty the condensate tank, unscrew the screw plug at the bottom back of the unit. You will need a small pan, approximately 1" high to catch the water coming out of the condensate tank. Once the condensate tank is drained, the unit will begin working within a few minutes. The emergency condensate tank holds approximate
ly 1.5 Liters of water.

Another option is to purchase a small hose from a hardware store that can fit around the 5/8" drain plug on the back of the unit and drain the unit into a gravity drain or larger pan for continuous drainage.

To resume operation quickly, empty the water container according to the following steps:

1. Turn the unit off. Do not move the unit when the water container is full.

2. Place the drain pan accessory under the drainage port at the back of the unit.

3. Remove the screw plug from the drain hole. The condensate water will drain out automatically. When the drain pan is full, screw the screw plug back onto the drainage hole to stop the water flow. Empty the drain pan. Repeat until all the water is emptied.

Once the water container has been emptied, screw the plug back onto the drain hole. Do not allow the
water to drip continuously into the drain pan, as it might easily overflow.

Water leaking out of frigidaire portable air conditioner at left back bottom corner? Model FAPO94P172 or FAP094P172??


First, have you drained the tank recently. If not, the warning light or auto shutoff failed and the tank may be overflowing. Worse case scenario is the that the tank is dirty and is not allowing the coils to cool and the dripping water you see is from the cooling coils. Since the tank is not removable, it's very difficult, at best to clean the tank.

If you drain the tank and before reinserting the drain plug, try to get about 1/2 teaspoon of bleach in the drain hole. followed by 2 cups of water. Of course you'll have to use a funnel of sort to do this. Reinstall the drain plug and move the unit around so the water and bleach will slosh around. Then run the unit until the bucket is near full again and drain it thoroughly. Look at the color of water draining out, for an indication that there is dirty water. That will be a good indication, that some cleaning of the tank has taken place.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a ksrs25QAW0l refrigerator . I need to know how to clean out the drain line


The user/owner manual tells a little about cleaning the coils but does not give a step by step possibly because every drain blockage is caused by many different senario's. You can begin here=> Leaking Refrigerators, Just What may be Happening And on this page=> Leaking Refrigerator's?
here is a PDF=> KSRS25QAWH01 Owners Manual and a KSRS25QAWH01 Parts Manual
There are a lot of material and reasons on the Leaking Refrigerators page. Remember safety first and unplug your appliance before working on or using water near electrical components and near base to examine the condensate collection tray you will need to remove the lower cover on back of your appliance taking care not to break an existing ice maker and water dispenser supply line as you move refrigerator away from wall to work on. If this is helpful please rate these solutions and should you have questions I will be here to answer, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a whirlpool duet sport washer and the question I have is an easy one: how to get the front of th washer off so that I can clean the drain on it? I am afraid that I will break it or take to much off...


Hi, you access the pump as follows:
1. Unplug the machine
2. Remove the lower front panel (the full width metal panel below the door). There should be 3 or 4 screws holding it in place. You may have to tilt the washer back slightly to access the screws.
3. The pump is mounted to the base, and faces forward. Unscrew the clean out plug from the front. Use a shallow pan to catch the small amount of water that is in the pump and hoses. Clean the screen, etc.
4. Put it all back together and plug it in.

Good luck.

Leaks when cleaning the bowl. Bowl moves a bit. Plumber was afraid to tighten bolts too much for fear of breaking bowl. How tight?


Leaks at the floor or the tank where it meets the base behind the seat?

Generally tight enough to sinch it so as not to leak.

If the whole unit moves on the floor the wax ring may need to be replaced. If the tank leaks be sure the bolts are tightened evenly with new gaskets sealing them inside the tank. Tighten the nuts evenly until it stops moving freely and the leak should stop.

Bunn coffee maker leaks water only during operation...near end of the cycle (not when it just sits & not when water is first added).


There is a gasket where the water inters the tank,you have to remove the tank to get to it .mark down how it is wired so you can hook it back up.Use a high-temp
silacone ( auto ) and seal it under the the gasket and around the edge of the gasket.. 2 screws holding the metal plate plate. 4 screws holding tank need a 12 or 14 " phillips to reach down on the side of the tank to remove outer cover.

Freezer door leaking alot of water on floor no ice on door


This really sounds like a plugged drain. When the unit goes into defrost the water should run down the drain into the drain pan...when the drain is plugged it will run over and down to the bottom of the freezer thus leaking out the bottom of the door and onto the floor. You will need to take everything out of the freezer and remove the screws that hold the back panel on break out the ice at the bottom and use hot water to pour down the drain to clear it.....also if you have a small hose to shove down the drain that will help out alot.
