I have a central air unit that has begun to leak water again. A few months ago, someone came out and told me that it was clogged with algie, and he put algie tablets in it, and instructed me to put bleach in that line every now and then, I have done it but it has begun to leak again, what do you suggest I do from here?
My guess is that water is accumulating in the tray or line, and not draining properly. To fix it, you will need to tip the tray so that no water accumulates. Also, check if the line is draining. Good luck.

Only two possible sources for a leak one is an ice maker, the other is defrost drain water. Either way it is only 9 months old and still under full warranty!! Call sears and have them come and look at it! I have seen a few of these units with cracked drain pans so be persistent if the tech cannot find a leak, have him pour some water into the pan to see if there is a crack. good luck and save yourself some stress.. You have a warranty to cover this:)
If you have access to your piping system you may use a soap bubbles to test the pipe connection. the leak gas will blow the bubbles if there is leaking. But if your system is out off freon gas, you can not use this method. just try it check the connection first put the bubbles around it.
Its refrigerant gas has leaked out so ice is forming on the evaporator which breaks and causes this cracking sound. The same is resulting in less cooling as well. Get the refrigerant gas pressure checked and fixed.
I suspect there is a leak in the tank and because you shut it off for a period of time, the hole sealed up with rust. If the heater is under warranty, contact your installer and show him the water spots inside the jacket. It should be covered under the warranty. If it is out of warranty, replace it before it does damage to the surrounding areas. If you let it go a while, get yourself a moisture alarm and put it next to the unit. If it should leak again, it will not stop until someone turns off the water valve. \\Good Luck!
I just repaired my Bloomfield 8543 unit. I removed the top, by first removing the top rear 2 screws and unplugging the 2 heating element wires under it. Then mark all the wires that go to everything, (it is only a few) remove the center screw that holds the water tank lid brace down, slid the brace to one side (the groove on one side is longer) and remove the brace. (My brace was bent.) Then lift the lid (the heating elements will come with it) and clean the gasket. I went as far as to remove the tank, clean that as well as all the tubes. I tightened everything down and it worked perfectly again. Good luck, ken
