Goodman ez-1425 ac copper pipe keeps freezing up


copper pipe freezing on the outside indicates that there is liquid evaporating in the space created by the suction of the compressor
the pipe normally will be insulated to stop atmospheric humidity condensing on the pipe
Suggest that you get in a technician to check gas pressures and ac operation

How do I vent out condensation from my tumble dryer?


Most dryers have a vent hose, about 4" across on the back. Normally, this is connected to a pipe that goes outside to vent the steam that comes from drying your clothes. A very few dryers use cold tap water to condense the steam, and then it runs down the drain. I don't know if they still make these, it's been 50 years since I saw one.

What causes a Bradford White Gas Hot water heater to leak at the base of the vent fan?


Hi,

Here are some general things to check:

1. Is the vent piping correctly sized?

2. Is the vent piping run too long? There are length limits depending on the heater for both vertical and horizontal runs.

3. Is there sufficient combustion air available? A very tight dwelling can cause a lack of adequate air supply for the combustion process.

4. Does the vent pipe run through a cold or otherwise unconditioned space on its way to the outside? The vent may need to be insulated (high temperature insulation only)

5. Is the vent fan working properly and stay on long enough?

6. Is the gas supply pressure ok and is the burner working properly?

Pipes of outside unit do not get cold also no water dripping out of pipe


depending on how much moisture is in the space you may not see any water dripping out of the pipe, and only 1 of the copper lines should be getting cold underneath the insulation, chances are your compressor is not coming on or no refrigerant is going through the lines.
changing temperature does nothing for a system so as long as it says on, the actual temperature stting makes no difference, the system does work better or harder the further the setting is.
I would check that the fan is on and if the compressor is running they have a very distinct humming noise when they run.

Cold air out of top outside unit but no cold air in house


Hello touch the two copper pipes entering the outside unit, the larger one should be cold with condensation the other one should be warm. If not the unit has no refrigerant in the system or the compressor is not running.

Water under dryer after use. cleaned exhaust lint in it was wet. should i insulate exhaust tubing. fsminatrea@yahoo.com


Hi

Dryer would be either leaking from vent or due to condensation. The vent may either be blocked. The water is coming from the clothes you have dried in the dryer and it has no where to go.
You need to dismantle the vent and clean it, replace it with new vent. The dryer may now be consuming more time to dry the same load of clothes. By correcting the venting problem you will solve the water problem and shorten your wash day and save on electricity as well.

Another issue is condensation which usually appears on the dryer vent pipe colder climates. As the warm air from the dryer is vented to the outside, it must be protected from the cold temperatures outside. If your dryer vent pipe is not properly insulated, the air that is being vented out will turn into water when it comes into contact with the cold pipe outside. This results in condensation and dripping water. To resolve this, you must insulate your dryer vent pipe along its entire length. This will ensure that the hot air from the dryer does not undergo temperature fluctuations, and no water will leak into the vent pipe. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

I have a hotpoint hot water heater it's about 6 years old. When I turn the hot water on it runs very slowly the water pressure is very low and it's like this throughout the house how do I fix this problem...


You have clog in the water line.
Since all hot water pipes are involved, clog is probably near water heater.

Buy pressure gauge at hardware store that threads onto hose connection.
Brady BTG 100 at Amazon
Picture of gauge

Check outdoor pressure for baseline pressure in your home.
Turn off electricity to hot water heater for an hour or two so there is not scalding water.
Open drain valve on water heater to see if water heater is clogged with sediment.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-will-not-drain.html

Put pressure gauge on drain valve and compare with outside pressure.
Open hot water spigot on bathtub and see if tank pressure drops ... if tank pressure drops significantly with bathtub spigot on, then clog is on incoming cold water before tank, and could be on outgoing hot water pipes too.
If tank pressure stays about the same, then clog is on outgoing hot water pipes.

Clog can be sediment caught in cold water shut off valve located above tank. Open and close valve and test pressure again. Take apart incoming cold water pipes above tank and check for sediment. Replace valve. Look at condition of cold water nipple on top of tank.

Sediment caught at hot water elbow near tank.
Sediment can fill up old pipes. Take apart hot water pipes above water heater and see condition.
Look at condition of hot water nipple on top of tank.
You may have to take apart pipes up to first or second elbow.

Pipes can decay at joint where copper pipe connects to galvanized pipe. Check for copper to galvanized connections on cold or hot pipes and replace section of galvanized pipe. Copper pipe will probably be good, the galvanized pipe will deteriorate. Replace copper-to-galvanized joint with 3/4" non-conducting union from hardware store

Water leaking from under car from passenager side. looked under car one arn length in. small hose attached about 1 1/2 in long that's where water coming from. all gauges read normal, rad and over flow...


This water is most probably condensation dripping from the airconditioner. This condensation is formed by the warm air coming in contact with the cold A/C. No need to worry about it. Run the vehicle without the A/C and see if the "leak" stops. If it was engine coolant it would have been green or brown in color(assuming your coolant contains antifreeze)

Water coming out bottom


ANOTHER THING TO CHECK IS IF THE DUCT IN THE WALL IS PLASTIC OR METAL. IF IT IS PLASTIC, IT WILL CONDENSATE INSIDE THE PIPE BECAUSE THE PLASTIC REMAINS COOL AND CAUSES WARM, MOIST AIR FROM THE DRYER TO CONDENSATE IN THE INTERIOR WALLS. WITH A VERTICAL RUN, IT WILL FALL BACK TO THE BOTTOM AND PUDDLE THERE. IF IT IS METAL, AND GOES THROUGH THE ROOF, MAKE SURE THERE IS A CAP ON THE OUTSIDE PIPE TO PREVENT RAIN WATER FROM COMING DOWN INSIDE. CHANCES ARE THAT IF YOU HAVE WATER INSIDE THE PIPE, THE ENTIRE PIPE IS LINED WITH LINT FROM TOP TO BOTTOM. YOU WILL NEED TO RUN A CLEANOUT BRUSH THE FULL LENGTH OF THE PIPE.
