Water in the Unit

When I turn the machine off and on, I hear there's water in the water tray. Can't find the manual though. How do I get to and empty the water tray? It can't be good to just leave that water in the tray until we remove the unit from the window in the winter.

Thanks for your help

    My unit is getting water in the circulation fan box when it rains. This is very dificult to remove as there is not much room to stuff a towel through the louver openings into the bottom of the fan box (louvers removed). The unit is installed at the correct angle as the condensate pan is dry. I can see the water coming through a horizontal seam in the foam fan enclosure. It looks like the offset in the upper and lower half is made backwards. If the offset in the lower half was on the top half water would not just run in. I have called for a service tech under waranty but I think it is a design flaw. This seam will have to be sealed but I do not want to put any chemicals on foam.

Most of the AC Unit lately are not made to drain. So when you have water collecting inside the unit, the condenser and the evaporator is suppose to help dissolve the water.
When water is collecting inside the appliance like that, it is either because the ac unit is not installed correctly or you live in a high humid area.

Empty water light, empty condenser


I experienced the problem with a hotpoint TCYM 750, with the red empty water light failing to switch off. After removing the filter and cleaning it, cleaning the condenser and drying anywhere I had access to the machine still didn't heat and the light remained on. Reading the post about the machine having 3 reservoirs it struck me that one of the reservoirs may be hard to access. So I unplugged the machine and tipped it onto its front. The reservoir drained, I pushed the machine back upright and cleared up some water around the condenser. The drier now works properly and the empty water light is off - job done!

The water filter should be changed every six months, not two years.
The water lines may still be frozen even though you turned the unit off, but most likely you are not getting water flow due to a clogged filter. Change it.

HI
Excess water into the drip tray is an indication that you don't have enough coffee going into the brew unit. There is a lever on the top of the door that has a + on one side and a - to the front. Push the lever back to the full plus, then pull it forward 1 click. Try that.
Water into the drip tray is normal in small amounts. This is the release of pressure after brewing, like the 3 way valve on commercial machines

Washing machine will not draw fabric conditioner


The Solution: Top up the softener tray with extra water so that it is up to the 'max level' mark.

The softener tray works by a siphon action. Thus, the reason the tray does not empty is that not enough water is added by the machine during the softening cycle, so that the machine does not completely fill the softening tray; only when the softening tray is filled beyond the 'max' mark does the siphon action works. A partially filled tray will never empty - it's impossible due to the siphon.

The reason that not enough water is added to the tray during the softening action is that the water inlet of the machine is partial blocked (you can try to fix that) but it is simpler to just added more water to the conditioner tray.

Thus, the easiest way to ensure that the softener tray empties every time (after adding the softener to the softener tray of course) is to top up the softener tray with extra water, top it up to the 'max level' line (keep a bottle of water by the machine). That way, even if only a little water is added to the softener tray during the softening cycle by the machine it is enough to trigger the siphon action and the tray will empty!

Works for me every time, and no need to remove any parts - I used to take the tray out, clean it, scrub the outlet holes that fill the tray etc, but they used to gum up again quite quickly!

Hope that helps

Machine says malfunction and won't froth milk


If you have a rotarywheel; Press and hold to enter the menu, turn to Maintenance, select Decalcify unit; empty tray as requested, fill up 600ml water in a container. Disolve 3 Descaling tablets in the water, and then fill it in the watertank. Press Maintenance button and you`re off.

If you don`t have a Rotary; Turn off the machine and let it cool down for a while, then push the Rinse/Maintenance button for a few seconds; then you will get the message Empty tray. Fill the solution in the watertank and press button.

It`s important that you use the right amount of water, or else the process will "never" finish.
