Q:

ac

A:

Thank you for your question.

I will assist you with your question. Air conditioners today are not made to drain all of the water out of the base. The condenser fan will sling water from the base onto the condenser to aid in cooling. If the water seems to be at a higher level than it did before I recommend checking the drain at the back of the unit. It might be plugged with debris. If the water is leaking into the house, I recommend checking the level of the unit. It should be at least a 1/4 inch lower in the back than the front.

I hope this is helpful.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

John Collins,

I am sorry you are having a problem with the room ac unit. I looked up the manual for this unit. According to the manual, this unit has a drain tank. The image below shows how to empty it. If you still have a leak, I recommend checking the installation of the ac. The link below will take you to the manual that has the instructions. If it is installed correctly, I suspect the drain is plugged or the catch pan is broken. You will need to take the unit apart to check these.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Q:

Sears Craftsman 2400 Watt AC Generator Model 580.328330 Only 1 Volt AC Output, should be 120 Volts AC Will item#37 part# 67462 "Diode Assembly" fix it?

A:

Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with the generator. Based on what you have checked, it sound like everything is working fine. If the unit has worked for you in the past I would not worry about the missing diode. I am not sure how you flashed the fields but you may want to try it again. To flash the field you need to:

  1. Plug the electric drill into the generator receptacle. (Cordless drills do not work)
  2. If the drill is reversible, move the direction switch to the forward position.
  3. Start the generator
  4. While depressing the trigger on the drill, spin the drill chuck in reverse direction. This will excite the field and the generator will now produce electricity. If spinning the chuck one direction does not work, try spinning the chuck in the other direction as you may have the reverse switch positioned backwards.
Use caution not to get your hand or other materials caught in the chuck. As soon as the field is excited, the generator will produce power and the drill will turn on. The reason this works is because the electric motor in the drill will act as a small generator when spun backwards. The magnets in the drill's motor induce a voltage into the motor windings, which is fed back through the trigger, cord and into the generators receptacle. From there it goes into the power winding of the stator. The voltage going through the power winding creates a magnetic field, which is intensified due to the iron core of the stator laminations. The rotor intersects this magnetic field as it is spun past the power winding, thus inducing a voltage in the rotor winding. Once current flow is present in the rotor, winding the rotor has been flashed. If this does not cure the problem I recommend replacing the rectifier and the diode. All the other parts ohmed out fine. The rectifier can be difficult to ohm out.  I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.

christopher, Thank you for the replies. I am glad to hear you have the unit up and running again. I am sure other users will find this helpful. The rectifier will get warm when it is running. I find most of the larger units have heat sinks to help keep them cool. Based on the size of yours you should not have a problem. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark

Q:

Using the correct 220-110V transformer, can the Craftsman 1 hr Charger number 1425301 be used with a 220 volt AC supply?

A:

The charger will work with a 220-120 volt transformer if it is connected properly. Be sure the transformer is putting out 120 volts ac at 60 hertz. Some overseas wiring overseas is 50 hertz.

The products to adapt from 120 to 220 are more readily available overseas than in the states. If there is a 220 volt charger, it would be available overseas.
