BLOWER NOISE Carrier Weathermaker 8000 works fine but when shutting down the blower makes a slight sound. Sounds like tapping the bottom of an empty plastic liter pop bottle. Can the blower be lubricated or oiled? Thanks

Small water leak from the bottom of the shower casing, much like a tap that drips. Shower works OK, no loss of power, or change in the water temp. Just this dripping from the shower case when the shower is on, nothing coming from the little plastic outlet pipe.

Hi, I have a Rudd 21J11SFC air handler. At the bottom front of the handler (drip pan area) is a plastic sheild, out of which comes the pvc drainage pipe. When removing the pipe so that I could access the coils, I accidentally snapped off a jagged piece of that plastic shield surrounding the pipe while trying to remove the pipe. Where would I find a replacement for this and how the heck would I install it? I know it sounds like such a minor problem, but I can't figure out any simple way to rig

Blower motor stopped, there is a medium-loud ''electric buzz'' sound every minute or so as if trying to start the blower motor. Could be relay switch. Last week, I extracted the entire motor and fan assembly (the one in the bottom of the furnace that drives the air through the house duct system). The motor was pretty filthy, so I took the entire thing apart an blew out all the dust, cleaned up the motor, Zoom oiled the bearing assemblies at each end, put it all back together. Started up and ran

Also a wiring scematic would help me. Thanks

My RUUD UBHA 21J8SFGAI is not cooling my house like before. It runs almost all day and the house feels a little warm.

I have been given a old Martin Industries Edison 25 dehumidifier, but have no manual. Question 1: The collection tank has a short plastic tube connected at bottom side of tank via threaded connection. Looks like water would drain out of the tank so how do I stop that? Want it to collect and shut off when full. Question 2: There's no back cover - metal coiling is exposed.Should it have a back cover? Should I improvise one and if so with what sort of material?


WOW, you do have an antique. Martin hasn't made those since back in the 80's. Martin Industries has been out of business now, for 5+ years. Since it's missing some parts and there's no Owners Manual available, I'd recommend not using it, because of t ... Air Conditioners

I have a Carrier furnace and noticed water on the floor. I saw it was coming from the filter housing. I pulled out the filter which was wet only on the bottom And noticed the pan/track it sits in had water in it. There is no water dripping from above it or in the duct leading to the blower or the cold air return. It's like the water appears from nowhere... I changed the filter and the same thing happened. Where is the water coming from?

My Honeywell 4006 1017 aquastat normally opens at 160 and when the water heats up to 180 the blowers shut off. Mine does the reverse right now so I have to do it manually so I can turn it to 160 to shut the blowers off when the water heated to 180. If I don't the water keeps heating and once was way over 200. I have the red wire on top screw of the the Honeywell 1017 and black on the bottom screw. I am thinking maybe if I put the red one on the bottom and the black one on top it will rev

Hi, I have Lennox gas furnace Model G12Q3E-82 (about 30 yrs. old). When running the A/C, I noticed there was water leaking or dampness around the bottom of the furnace.

I also removed some water that accumulated in the bottom of the frame that wraps around the blower motor and fan wheel.
