Refresh your browser, and make sure you're on the "active" questions tab.

Adding some photos of the area might help folks think of a solution.

You could edit the additional detail into the original question. This will bump the question on to the "front page", which will get it more views. Additionally, you could set a bounty on the original question to get more views.

Why can't you let the water drain off the balcony to the ground below?

comment Can't get my AC to turn on at all
Was the existing capacitor the same size required by the new motor? Often times when replacing the fan motor you have to install a new capacitor just for the fan motor, because the existing capacitor is not the proper size. Did you test the contactor to make sure it's still good? Did you check to make sure the system is signalling the condensing unit properly?

comment How do I run an Ethernet cable through a doorway in a Mexican house built with brick and mortar?
Could you run the cable above the ceiling, or below the floor?

comment Where does the C wire connect in a dual transformer system?
Being powered by Rc and C would mean that the R wire coming from the cooling transformer would be connected to the R terminal, and the C wire coming from the cooling transformer would be connected to the C terminal. It's better to think of the C wire as "neutral", not ground.

comment Wiring new bathroom fan with old-school heat/fan wiring
Why is there a "group" with only a single black wire? Why is there a lonely copper wire? How was the old switch wired?

You'll have to check the documentation for the thermostat you're using, or contact the manufacturer. Some thermostats have an R and Rc terminal, and would likely be powered by R and C (heating transformer). Others have Rh and Rc, and could be powered by Rh and C (heating transformer) or Rc and C (cooling transformer). It depends on the circuitry in the thermostat.

comment Troubleshooting pressure error code for Trane XV80
Could be that the sensor is sticking, the blower isn't generating a large enough pressure difference, or a combination of both. Check the inducer motor to make sure it's clean and in good working order, and that it's spinning at the proper speed. Depending on the cost of a replacement, it might be worth throwing in a new pressure sensor. Check the exhaust tube for any restrictions.

It depends on the installation, and the equipment involved. Do you have a schematic or wiring diagram?
