Either your condensate drain is blocked with debris or you've been freezing up. Look for a white pvc pipe usually 3/4" coming out the front of the unit. Find the other end and stick a shop vac on it. If you get a glob of goop followed by water, this was your problem. If you can check the indoor coil, see if there is any ice, if there is ice, check your air filter, if filter is good, call an a/c service because you probably have a freon leak. If ice is an issue, you must turn the system off and turn the fan switch on to allow the system to thaw completely before you can try to use it again or also before an a/c service can repair it.

I have a 2007 jeep soft top that leaks. Should I just replace it with a hard top? Will this fix my leaks? My floors get wet, along with my drivers seat and seatbelt.


Replacing it with a hard top would fix the problem. Need to move fast. If mold begins to sprout you will have a seriously difficult problem to fix. What about just replacing the soft top?

Whirlpool dehumidifier ad35dssi runs, but doesn't collect any water, even in a wet area. Have cleaned filters, no luck.


Glad to hear that you thought to clean the filter, as that would have been one of my suggestions. Because, it's the most overlooked.

But, there is another one that equally overlooked and is probably the number cause of your humidifiers problem. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32 - 35%. If your unit does not have an LED Screen readout, set the control on MINIMAL.

This is what gets confusing about the use of dehumidifiers. They work backwards from what most people think. The lower the setting, the more moisture/humidity is extracted from the house. The higher the setting/numbers, the more humidity remains in the house. The higher setting would be used only in the Winter, because removing all the moisture and humidity will make the house uncomfortable.

If this wet area, you mentioned is a basement. The ambient air temperature at floor level is colder than at chest level and dehumidifiers don't work well in temperatures between 40 & 60 degrees F.
If this is the case, placing the unit up off the floor on a sturdy table, counter, etc that can hold the weight of the unit, plus a full bucket of water will generally solve the problem.

Also, be sure that you're maintaining at least 12" of clear air space on all sides of the unit. If the air flow is obstructed, the unit will run all day and not extract any water.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Kenmore # 58052650100 this is my humidifiers model number my question is my first time using i need to know how to use this machine this machine stars 30% to 70% what is the right number to use? i have...


Christian, simply put ... the lower the percentage the more moisture it will extract. The higher the percentage the less it will extract and just maintain that level.

The lowest level is what you want to use in a wet basement. If the ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 & 60 degrees F, you want to get the dehumidifier up off the floor on to something sturdy, that can handle the weight and the vibration. The reason for this, is that most dehumidifiers will not work well at or between those temperatures. Once the water collection bucket is FULL, the Bucket Full light will come on the the dehumidifier will shut OFF. The bucket most be emptied and properly reinstalled, before the unit will turn ON again. Also, rather than run it in continual mode, run it in a timed mode. Usually either 2 hours of 4 hours.

It seems you don't have the Owner's Manual for this unit. It would be wise to get one. Since it's a Sears Kenmore, you can get it online from Sears Parts Direct. This will help you in the future in performing routine maintenance on the unit.

In the meantime, I hope I helped you understand some of the basic operation of your dehumidifier. Please let me know. Thanks.

I noticed that my passenger side floorboard is wet, what would be causing it?


there's a few different things that could be causing your floor to be wet, one is your heater/air conditioner unit has a drain tube on it to drain off condensation out of the box (inside the car) that contains the heater core and air conditioning evaporator, it is designed to drain to the outside of the car near the engine area, they often become plugged up with debris which don't allow them to drain though the hose and then begin dripping inside the car on the passenger side, the other possible case is that the windshield has been replaced and not sealed properly and water is entering around the windshield and dripping on the floor.also there is a minor possibility that water is entering around the door seal, although unless there has been damage to the door or door seal is very unlikely. thanks for using fixya

Check engine light came on, diagnostic revealed oxygen sensor, replaced all oxygen sensors, drove the car for 50 kms, stopped and restarted the car and after a few minutes, the light came on again. What ...


the beginning of yourproblem is misdiagnosis, you probably had it code scanned,and got an 02 code, if you had it on a real time scanner you would get readings from the scanner to assist in diagnosis, story i tell my assistants, the floor is wet, first guy mops it up and leaves, second guy noticed water dripping on the floor, so he mops it and places a bucket to catch the drips. third gut sees the wet floor, notices the drip , looks up an notices the roof is leaking, so he fixes the leak and mops the floor, same idea with cars, you get the symptom but you have to find the cause to repair right, so find a tech with a real time scanner and take the time to do it right

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum. You can down load the owner manual from the Hoover website www.hoover.com . It looks like the one of the holding or recovery tanks my not be in place, leaking, cracked or damaged, or the clear tube is leaking and needs replacing. I looked 2 the owner’s manual and it does not show the clear tube but the vacuum does come apart and just back track the clear tube and mark the screws when you disassemble the unit. Other wise , please call the factory or a local Hoover warranty station in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
