I have a portable Honeywell Evaporative Cooler that I tried to take apart and clean today. I unscrewed the backing piece that covers the cardboard media where the water soaks, and took the whole thing out to clean inside the cooler.
However, after putting it all back together and running the cooler, water drips out the back of the cooling media, onto the backing, and drips down the back of the cooler.
I feel like I installed the media backwards or the wrong way somehow but have been unable to figure it out. Does anyone have any recommendations on identifying what I did wrong or how to reinstall these things? Thanks in advance.
