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.

It is normal for properly maintained AC unit to condensate, as the coil drops below dew point it will condensate the water in the coil cabinet and water should flow out condensate drain.
causes... drain stopped up .... correction.. clear drain. Other causes could be low air flow... Dirty Filter.. Dirty Coil ... Obstructions to discharge air grills closed or blocked... others
could be improper Refrigerant charge, Dirty blower vanes blower cabinet not level. All things easily corrected with a Service call by a reputable service company. Good Luck I hope this helped you.

Check the vent pipe, air must flow in and out of the vent pipe at all times. The vent pipe must be an 1 1/2" pipe coming off the top of the pump casing and vented outside the house, to the open air. Do not use a cheater vent, studdor vent or mechanical vents as they are not recommended to be used, they only allow air to flow one way.

Frigidaire stack washer and dryer water pump air bursts


follow this steps and use the common sense. God bless you
f the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber (see below). If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat (see the Appliance Controls Fix-It Guide).
If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle (see below).
If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.
If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the soleplate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the soleplate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water

Open a nearby window to let in plenty of air and see if problem continues.
Problem might be something simple like vent backflow blowing out pilot, or more complicated like bad gas control, or combination of problems listed below.
Suspects include:
Faulty gas control thermostat.
Air in gas line.
Low gas pressure.
Hot attic air.
Insufficient air, or dirty air intake.
Dirty combustion parts, and tubes.
Thermocouple not sitting in flame.
Thermocouple tightened too much. Finger tight + 1/4 turn. No joint compound or teflon tape.
Bad venting.
Backflow of air down vent pipe caused by tight house and/or other vent fans in house.

Vent on top is blowing bubbles and toilet pan is filling up with effluent


If you have a Saniplus model then the vent connection is on the top right side of the pump casing if you are facing the toilet with pump sitting behind. The vent pipe needs to be minimum 1 1/2" and must be vented to the open air so air can flow in and out at all times. To the left side of the vent connection is the discharge pipe which should be a 3/4" or 1" discharge pipe. You can try disconnecting the vent pipe and run it with the vent pipe open, also you can disconnect the discharge pipe and put a bucket at the end of the discharge elbow and flush the toilet into the bucket, it will free flow into the bucket and there are no restrictions. That way you can tell if the problem is the pump or the installation set up.

Water leaks out front


I had exactly the same problem with my Kenmore Ultrawash. I thought the leaking might be coming from the seals around the door, but found that it was leaking from the top as described. I removed the air vent cover on the inside of the door and found that it and the vent area had a great deal of what appeared to be dissolved paper. At first I thought perhaps this was somehow remenents of some kind of air filter, but after reading the post here, came to conclude this was foreign matter. I believe what happended is we at some time washed jars or something with lables on it and this stuff accummulated inside the air vent area. I think in a normal case, when the washer is running, water is mostly stopped from going into the air vent area by the hatched cover, but inevitably some water would get thru. This would be ok normally, because the water would just hit the vent area and probably just fall back into the washer. With all the debris stuck in the vent area and on the cover, I suspect the water was not able to exit the vent area or was hitting the debris and causing the water to jet out the opening to the front - hence the water coming out the vent and pouring down the front. Once I cleaned out the vent area and the cover from the debris, I replaced the cover and ran the washer with no water leaking anymore.

I'm so glad you posted your finding - it gave something to look into, and turned out to be the same source of the problem. You saved me a service call.

Dirty water runs back into washer, moving drum, you hear it.


What kind of washer. Most washers will have a balance ring in them. This balance ring has liquid sealed inside it. So you will hear water swishing when you move it.Totally normal. If water is indeed running back into the tub, you need to pull your discharge out of the wall. It should only go in about 2 ft max. Any deeper and you can get syphoning. Dave www.washermd.com

Rv air conditioner leaking


I have the same problem....it is a negative pressure problem holding water inside the unit until it overflows the pan and runs into the duct system. why this occurs....I don't know....I cant find a problem with my air return, but as soon as you turn in off, the water comes gushing out the drains on the unit. I resolved this....temporarily....by twisting up a paper towel into a wick, and placing one end up into the drain tray, with the other end lying well out into the exterior case. This lets the water wick out and keeps the tray drained. I don't understand the problem and don't know what the permanent fix will be, except maybe cutting a hole and placing an intake vent directly below the unit.
