PAC CT-90 Air conditioner My CT90 is leaking
When you air condition, you essentially remove heat from the "inside air" and transfer it to the "outside air". from a google search this thing is sort of like a window air conditioner, but the hot air is sent outside via a vent hose, so the unit can be located away from the window. Any time you cool air, it holds less water, so depending on the humidity, there will be condensate formed, the question is, how is it dealt with. In window air conditioners, you see it dripping from the back side when it is running. For your unit, is it unclear how the condensate is being removed; maybe hot air going outside is directed across where the condensate collects and it is assumed it will evaporate and be vented outside as vapor? First, check and see if the unit is still under warrantee, if so, contact them and see how to get it fixed (if you mess with it, it might void the warrantee). If it has expired or the company is out of business, etc, you can try opening it up and see what is going on. The water collects under the evaporator (the fins where cold air comes out). Underneath there should be some kind of tray or something that collects the condensate and directs it somewhere in the unit for it to be gotten rid of. I'm thinking something is cracked, leaking or come loose, letting the water escape and run out. If that is the case, you might be able to use silicone seal or something like it to seal the leak. Hopefully, it is something simple like that.
