Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Water Leakage My split unit was not cooling as much as it used to. I touk out the filters to clean them, i found a little piece stuck in it (about 1inch size). Anyway, now it is leaking water from the inside unit. Thank you


Answers :

Sounds as if your condensating drain is clogged. This drain is connected to a drain pan in which your eveporator coil is in. The filter material may have gotten into this pan and covered the drain hole. The way to check is to open the area where the coil is located and look at the tray this coil sits in. This tray should have a hole right in the corner of it. You may need to get a shop vac with a small hose attachment and use it to remove the water in this pan in order for you to see this drainage hole. You may also go to the drain where it is located on the outside of the house (this drain is located by the a/c unit outside most of the time) and using the wet vac, put the house on the end of the drain pipe and have the vaccum pull out alll the debris this way. Good Luck

I have a Friedrich Model KS10E10-A 1000 BTU wall unit. Lately it's dripping water from the front radiator of the unit. I don't know why. Can you let me know if I will need a new unit. It's cooling fine only for the water dripping. Kindly let me know. Thanks. John T. Xenis


AC units work similar to dehumidifiers, and remove moisture from the air, the moisture drains into the bottom of the AC unit. The AC unit should be sloped slightly downward on the outside so that the water runs outside rather that inside.\015\0 ... Friedrich Air Conditioners

Re: friedrich model # EL25J35-A wall unit It is spewing water from the front and not draining out the hole in the back underside out side of the house. I want to slide the unit out onto it's support frame and clean the gunk that has accumulated that is preventing the water to drain outside. I am not able to figure out how to detach the grill on top so that the unit will slide forward. thank you, Janna

The unit on the wall drips water onto the floor, the drain doesn't appear to be blocked . It's either a Fujitsu AST14R or a AST9R, as there are three in the house and I don't know which is which. I have put the hose to the drainpipe from downstairs in the hope of blowing out any blockage, which resulted in more water on the floor. It ran alright all day, then started to drip again in the afternoon. The other two units are fine. Thank you for your help. Leon. Novello

Duo Therm dripping water in camper when shut off. My Dometic Duo Therm Ducted AC drips quite a bit of water when shut off after running for several hours on hot humid days. The condensate lines are open. The lines drip steadily while the unit runs. When shut off the lines flow a great deal of water, suggesting that the pan is full. At this point I notice water dripping from the duct work. Thank you for your help!


Remove the filter at ceiling and run the AC on cool etc, and see if you can feel cool air leaking across to return air inlet where the divider between cold and return is. Check along all edges, etc for any cool air . Careful of wiring, but you should ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

Bosch W125 KV 3P 32 s 3104T1 Hi This is a tankless HW propane heater that is used up at my cottage. The issue I am having is that the main burners are not igniting. As well there seems to be some water flow restriction through the unit. I had a look at the water strainer and it seems pretty clogged. I am assuming that this is the source of the water restriction. My question is what would be causing the heating elements not to ignite? Please let me know Thanks Cain

We need to know where the main drain is located on our unit or how to access it so it can be opened and cleaned. It stopped up and the secondary overflow line running to the outside of the eve worked loose from the unit and dumped my bedroom ceiling with water. Overflow line repaired but the MAIN drain needs to be disconnected a the unit to unstop. We are elderly, both sick, repairman overloaded and it is HOT where we live. Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks in advane for your help.


Unfortunately, if you're elderly and sick, you'll need to get the serviceman back to unclog it for you. As it will require crawling on your hands and knees, to access the main drain and then running an auger or high pressure air into the main drain l ... Air Conditioners

Hello, I have a Ruud 10 seer unit in the condo i rent...it frequently stops cooling. The fan inside never shuts off, but the unit outside won't come on often enough to cool to the temp on thermostat. When the A.C. guy comes all he does is drain some water from the inside unit and it works fine for awhile. Can you explain how I can do that myself...as it's very hard to get him here. Thank you.


It sounds like the air cond is freezing up, and as he melts the ice off he evaporator coil you will have air flow again. When the evaporator, (which is the coil that absorbs the heat from your condo) is frozen over, no air flow can pass through it. ... Ruud Matching Split Air Conditioner

I have a portable air conditioner and the water condensation tank fills in about 4 hours of constant use. Is there any kind of portable water tank that I could attach to my unit that would allow me to empty the tank after overnight use rather than every 4 hours? I am hesitant to drill a hole for the plastic hose to drain outside. Thanks for your help.([email protected])

I have a brand new, 6/11/2010 Friedrich Wall Master 13C30 (It replaced a Friedrich Wallmaster), same size. I am getting the "mist" out of the unit as soon as it is turned on, and it continues! The sleeve is tilted, as the replaced unit always drained to the outside correctly. There is nothing to clean or "fix" to my knowledge. Can't call Friedrich until Monday 6/14. Thanks in advance.

I just had two Kenmore 75251 24500 window units placed by pro installers into a large room well within the square foot rating, the units "spit" water droplets out of the cold air vents, the temp was 86 and the humity was high. Is this normal? Thanks Randy


You need to better balance the blower speed and the temperature setting until you get the air in that room conditioned to where there is not as much moisture. Too little air passing over the coils results in poor cooling and a tendency for the unit t ... Air Conditioners
