I think it is coz where they are made the humidity is high. There is a temp. differential between the inside and outside of the glass. That may contribute too.

A bit Off topic... Go the Crows..... finners crossed for the Sawnnies too.

Back on topic. It is sort of like in a green house where there is humd air and it is warm but outside the air is cool and the glass cools to cause condensation..... that is my theory and I am sticking to it.

understandable

is it possible to remove the condensation ??

it looks like the heater is leaking (with the water inside)

Not that I know of. I think it just has to stay there.

the heater is definitely working !!
the light is back ON

however, I noticed that the water inside the heater is boiling

question:

If I were to tip/turn the heater upside-down and shake it. Will the water empty and fall out ??
