Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

My Intertherm G5RC080C-16 unit is not draining properly. I pulled the visible hoses and found no obstructions in the hoses - and it was dry as dust where they connected back to the 1. blower and 2. bottom and back of what I would guess is a collection area. The sump pump was full and not working so I cleaned it and it works like a charm now, but no water is going into it, only all over my basement floor. Where can I look to open up the water flow back to the pump>

Sounds like a dirty coil and filter. The system is starving for air therefore pulling air back through the drain hole preventing drainage.

The evaporator is probably not excessively condensing in as much as the amount of condensate is directly proportional to the amount of humidity in the air. It sounds like the problem is more likely the primary drain is restricted by algae; if this is the case I suggest pouring a cup of bleach in the primary drain and see if that clears the primary drain. Note: the secondary is just that it is designed to keep the water from overflowing into the house. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Bucket fills up instead of water flowing out hose

There must be a blockage in the hose causing the water to back up and flow into the bucket. Try pushing a flexble peice of wire through the hose to unblock it.

The best way to clear the drain line is by using a shop vac and sucking out the blockage and the water. This will make sure all the goop in there comes out. Let me know if you need anything else.

My whirlpool duet washer front loader wont wring out the clothese properly. We have replace the drain pump and cleared all the hoses and filters. It also doesn't seem to go in to real fast spin.


First, make sure your machine is not overloaded. Overloading will not allow the machine to spin out properly. Also, make sure its fairly level. Next, make sure that all the shocks on the drum are properly attached and in working order (after you pull off the access panel, the shocks are readily visible -- there are typically 4 of them, 2 in front, 2 in back). Their heads slip into a slot and then twisting them locks them in. Finally, I would pull of the drain line leading from the drain filter to the tub basin. Once its off, stick your hand up into the basin. All kinds of yuck tends to collect there, semi-obstructing the drain line, which permits more water to remain in the basin, which doesn't allow your machine to spin as quickly as it otherwise would.

Hi Kloynes,
It could be a problem of LEAKAGE.....Followings steps may help you tackle the problem:
Steps
  1. Check the hose under your fridge that drains condensation and such into a catch tray. Make sure the hose is draining properly.
  2. Blow air through the tube to make sure it is not clogged. A coat hanger wire can be inserted to break up clogs. An alternative method is to use a bicycle pump to force air through the drain hole to remove any obstruction. Vacuum dust bunnies from under the fridge to allow free flow of the air. Most refrigerators periodically blow warm air across the condensation tray. The warm air dries the condensation in the tray.

Tips
  • Clogs are usually caused when dust, moisture and micro-organisms get together in the drain tube. Keep the dust vacuumed from the back and bottom of the fridge. Make sure the drain tube is firmly connected at all points. The drain tube can be flushed with chlorine bleach, rubbing alcohol or other anti-bacterial product. Product selection should be consistent with the tubing material.

Warnings
  • Use caution with anti-bacterial products. Make sure that any such products cannot flow back into the food compartment.

Things You'll Need
  • Wire hanger
  • Anti-microbial agent such as chlorine bleach, rubbing alcohol or anti-bacterial soap.

Thanks

you can use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove any water in the unit.Then you need to remove all the hoses to the drain pump and look for any obstructions in the hose or the pump itself.also check and make sure the wiring is in good shape and connected properly if there is no obstruction the n you may need to replace the drain pump

How do you unclog the drain from the air handler (intertherm)? It's draining into one of our bedrooms instead of outside.


Two possible solutions, one would to hook up a wet/dry vac to the condensate hose where it discharges and give it a few minutes to do it's job. The second and messy way would to blow into the condensate hose to clear the obstruction.

Whirlpool front loader washing machine (AWO3361) WONT DRAIN


Remove drain hose from where it connects to the plumbing under the sink/tub. Inspect the spigot. If clogged, clean. If clean, then tilt machine back and remove drum to pump hose from pump. Check hose and also drain pump. Clear any obstructions.

Drain Problem


The first thing you need to try is to pull a vacuum on the drain hose to see if you can pull water from the tub. You can do this by using a wet/dry shop vac and connecting it to the end of the drain hose. If the water drains from the washer you may not have a clog. It may actually be a bad drain pump. If water does not flow, or is draining slowly you will need to check the drain pump AND the hose between the pump and wash tub. You can accomplish this by removing the lower kick panel under the door. There are three 7mm screws under the bottom edge. The drain pump is located on the right hand side of the machine or directly in front under the wash tub. It is the ONLY pump in the washer so it should be easy to find. There is a clean-out access that you can remove to clean out the pump impeller. Removing this access will cause whatever water is remaining in the tub and drain lines to come gushing out. That's why it is important to try to remove as much water as you can, FIRST. Even if draining the tub with a vacuum is slow, let it drain. When removing the drain access, look for anything that may be obstructing the impeller. I have found items as small as a Q-tip can stop the pump (believe it or not). In a nut shell: Pull a vacuum on the drain hose - 1. WATER DRAINS EASILY - failed drain pump or obstructed impeller. 2. WATER DRAINS SLOW - Obstructed drain pump and/or drain line. 3. WATER DOES NOT DRAIN - Serious obstruction somewhere in the drain line BEFORE the pump (usually a sock or wash cloth that has worked it's way between the basket and wash tub). *You will notice the drain hoses collapsing as you pull a vacuum if there is a serious clog. Let me know if this helps you.
