      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Central AC leaking on furnace

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

I have a leaking problem with my CA unit on my furnace. It's leaking at the seam where it's attached to the furnace. There is some water coming out of the drain hose but much more coming from the seam. Is this really bad?

Can I take out the coils and look at it closer to fix the problem?

Thanks

Try taking the drain apart and cleaning it out it could be plugged. Either that or if it hasnt run in awhile your trap has dried up then you need to put some water it the trap.

I can blow through the end of the hose and there is a trickle of water coming out so I don't think the drain is plugged. The fitting are all copper so I don't know if I can take it apart. Ca I pull out the plenum and get at the drain pan from there?

mmeyer, I also started to see water yesterday comming out of my furnace seams. My pump runs and plenty of water comes out the hose. I called the person that installed it and he hasnt got back to me yet. Im starting to think maybe all the humidity we had may of caused this?

Take a wet/dry vacuum set it for WET. Suck the drain out.

Also could be your coil is frosting. The water will have no were to go if that

is the case. Call your A/C man.

Have you changed your filters? That will do it some times.

Those fancy paper fil/treat filters will also cause a coil to frost sometimes

because of lack of air flow.

I took mine apart and found everything in pretty good condition. I was expecting to see maybe some corrosion or something bad. I'll change my filter and suck out my drain. I'm thinking maybe that the overload of humidity this past week caused an over flow of the little drain pans. We'll see what happens.

Thanks everyone.

only ice

If you have a old system with very little return air do not use those fancy filters...

Get the old stand-by spun class filters and oil them. NOT MOTOR OIL.

Air filter oil, filter tact. A real hardware store will have it.

The big box stores seldom have that type of stuff.

When this happened to mine the drain was partially plugged. A trickle coming through but the pan under the A coil was overflowing and running down to the floor. Unplugged the drain hole and everything was fine.

    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon. 
    • Looking good! I also wanted reverse lights. I used some of the really bright light bars from Amazon on mine.  
    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
