I’ve tried searching for what I was looking for but I could not find a solution yet or a post that actually addressed what I was looking for. If there is any existing post, can someone link it.
The issue that I’m facing is smoke leaking. Originally, I had smoke leaking through the front and sides of the GF but I was able to fix that problem by cleaning out the exhaust port with a vacuum as indicated in the cleaning directions. Now that I have removed the exhaust hose and reinstalled, I no longer have that problem. Airflow seems to be flowing and sucking through the exhaust.
This seemed to create a new problem for me. There is smoke leaking from the exhaust port. I have tried the following debugging:
• Leak from the hose – I have replaced the hose and also tried installing it from both ends. The smoke is still leaking out from the exhaust port area
• Clamping – I have tried adjusting the clamps a few times and I did confirm that the hose is not easily removed by simple tugs. It seems tight.
• Air flow – I confirmed that the airflow is flowing. It’s visible in the GF through the glass. I felt the air flow at the other end of the exhaust hose (exit).
So I’m at this point confused and not sure what I’m doing wrong or if the set up is incorrect. I’m playing whack-a-mole with smoke coming out of the GF.
I have a video of the connection and setup. However, because of the lighting it’s hard to see the smoke coming out, but there is actual smoke coming out.
