Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

I have a split system SAP-K181AHA, SAP-K241AHA that is leaking water from unit inside house.


Answers :

Air conditioners wring moisture from the surrounding air that collects in a pan under the cooling coil in the inside unit.
\015\012
\015\012Chances are that the condensate drain is plugged or the drain pan is plugged. Look for a hose that exits the inside unit and runs to a drain. You can follow it back to the drain pan of the A/C unit. If there is water sitting in the pan, then either the hose or pan or both are plugged.
\015\012
\015\012Turn the unit off, get a small bucket and remove the drain tube. Catch the water in the bucket. Blow through the drain line until it's clear. If the thought of doing this is too repulsive, then use an air compressor or even a manual tire pump. Now check the drain pan in the unit for debris and remove as much as possible from the pan and the drain fitting.
\015\012
\015\012Both the pan and drain line should be checked at the beginning of each cooling season.
\015\012
\015\012Reinstall the drain tube and see how it works!

I tend to think it's blocked somewhere, buy my husband cannot find where to check this. Our outdoor units are both under the house with very effective ventilation but the last 3 days have been extremely humid, however the other system is running perfectly. Any ideas? Thanks,
