Question about Intertherm Air Conditioners

I have an Intertherm waterheater in my park model trailer. It is less than a year old, and leaks around the drain valve. (I think) How do I get the valve off, is it just threaded on?

Yes and most likely it is a cheap plastic valve. You will need to turn off the water to the heater and drain it completely. Pick up a new Brass valve at your local Lowes or Home Depot and wrap 5 windings of Teflon Tape on the threads of the new valve. When wrapping the tape on, hold the valve so the threads are up and start wrapping the tape Clockwise. If you do it the wrong direction the tape will peel off when threading it in the heater.

I HAVE A MODEL UFG-101AG-4 SERIAL # 800H2 INTERTHERM FORCED AIR FURNACE FOR MOBILE HOME OR TRAVEL TRAILER THAT I DONT KNOW WHATS WRONG WITH IT?


OK. Let me answer you, even if honestly I don't have any idea about an INTERTHERM FORCED AIR FURNACE. To get any answer, to a problem, you should describe your problem. Just telling that you don't know what's wrong with it is simply no enough information, even for a star expert in your INTERTHERM FORCED AIR FURNACE.

Shut off power, get a small wrench, remove orifice spuds and clean them with toothpick. Take burners out and clean rust from them. Check and see if you are getting 24 volts to gas valve. If not replace it.

Hot water leaking from what i think to be the pop off valve. i tried to tighten it a little and it started leaking more. The unit is 16 years old. The excess water is draining into the catch pan and then...


Hello
16 yrs old? Im guesing this is a hot water heater.Not a air conditioner.

If its still making hot water you may not need to replace the whole unit.
The valve that is leaking is a high pressur relief valve and they do go bad the sprigs become weak over time and some corrosion may not allow the valve to seat properly.

1st step is to shut off all incoming and out going water to the tank.
2nd Shut off fuel or gas to the unit, and annonce to everyone your are working on the hot water heater.
3rd at the very bottom should be a drain valve much like a hose spicket,open this slowly and drain the tank,remember the water will be hot.You may not need to drain it all the way,while draining pop open the relief valve,when you stop getting water from it,you are below it and can turn the drain valve off.
4th remove old relief valve and replace with a new one,i think they are rated at 15 psi or 30 psi blowoff pressure,hopefully there is a tag on it with that info.

When you go to install your new one use some pipe thread compound or teflon tape around the threads before you reinstall valve.
Once done slowly refill tank with water, check for leaks.When full open up hot water valve to house and relight buner.open a faucet in kitchen to hot to bleed off any air.

Water Leak from the hole where drain valve is attached


Time for a new water heater, it's leaking there because that's where it can get out - tank shot - not repairable. (Unless it's actually leaking out of the drain valve(which can be threaded out and replaced) but that would only leak if someone has tried to open it.)

Gas Valve is leaking


I am a Nordyne dealer and you can replace your gas valve with a generic valve of your choice. You can try and find a supply house in your area that sells them or you can visit www.myhvacparts.com to find one.
