Water Evaporator Pad

If water does not exit properly the water evaporator pad might be clogged with calcium and other mineral deposits. Once the water evaporator pad is clogged, the water rides along the top of the pad and drips down outside of the water collection tray at the bottom. If water does not exit properly check the water evaporator pad and replace as needed.
