Hi jimali1987,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: Smoke is coming from lower rear of unit.

Unplug! Remember where there's smoke there's fire. Get access to compressor and find the burnt wire or whatever it was. I have found burnt animal nest in the past. You never know.

Feel free contact me again!

Well,you may have an oil leak,but #2 missfire may mean a few things.
Pull #2 spark plug and see what's up.
be sure you are getting spark to #2.
Check for a vacuum leak,also.

Smoke is coming out of the a/c


Ice probably formed on the outside of the unit and the a/c is working to defrost itself. Check out this page: http://andysair.blogspot.com/2010/01/looks-like-smoke-is-coming-out-of-my.html

Engine light is on smoke test revealed vacuum leak at back of eng


Vacuum boot comes off of the intake manifold at rear of engine, passenger side. Super hard to get to. you cannot see it. You have to do it by feel. After a startup backfire, mine popped off. My mechanic couldn't find it, but a smoke test of the vacuum system confirmed it was coming out between firewall, and intake. It took me @ an hour to find it. Pushed it back on and it works great.

I have smoke coming out of the freezer fan grill and water dripping outside on each side of the shell between the freezer and refrigerator. What is the problem?


Your drain may be plugged and water is getting onto the fan's electrical.
Go to back of the unit, remove access panel, check that the little drain tube is dripping water into the evap tray. Tray should be somewhat wet. You can use pipecleaner or coathanger to check for clogs in drain. Or cut the bottom rubber piece off to allow better flow..

This smoke is actually condensation formed by having a humid room meeting the cold dry air. This is not a problem and does not pose a threat. Similar to the effect when you open your fridge or more obvious your freezer. Just temperature and humidity differances causing this.

Air Conditioner Smoke


The smoke you are seeing is the cold air turning the hot humid air into a cool mist. This may happen when you first run the a/c to cool the room. Once the room is cooled down you should not see the mist any more.
