Go outside and find the drain outlet usually by the outdoor unit and **** it out with a shop vac , be sure its a wet dry vac. buy one if you dont have one. its cheaper than a service call do this twice a year.

The evaporator is probably not excessively condensing in as much as the amount of condensate is directly proportional to the amount of humidity in the air. It sounds like the problem is more likely the primary drain is restricted by algae; if this is the case I suggest pouring a cup of bleach in the primary drain and see if that clears the primary drain. Note: the secondary is just that it is designed to keep the water from overflowing into the house. Hope this helps!

My frigidaire air conditioner is making my apartment feel damp and when i took my filter out to clean it that part was damp too! What do I do to fix this?


You may have a clogged drain or the unit is installed without enough angle pitch for the water to drain to the back of the unit toward the outdoor section of the unit. I'm assuming it's a window air conditioner? The moisture condenses on the cooling coil near the filter and should drip down into a condensate drain pan, then the water should drain to the back of the unit into a pan at the condenser coil fan that is rejecting the heat outside. The fan blade usually has a ring on the outdoor fan that pick up the condensate moisture the fling accumulated water onto the hot condenser coil to evaporate it. Also the filter should not be touching the cooling coil. Make sure it in the correct slot. Some a/c cooling coil require a wetting agent that allow the water to slide down the coil and not pull off of the coil into the indoor circulating fan.

Water leak


HI,

Please CLICK HERE for some very useful info.

This is a very common problem that is easily solved. The way your air conditioner dries your house is by removing moisture. That moisture must go some where. The moisture is removed by condensing it on the cold refrigeration coils and letting it run down a drain pan.
The problem is that dirt and crud will stop up the drain line and clog the pan. This will eventually happen to every system out there give it enough time.
While this problem makes a terrible mess and seems like to end of your system it is really quite easy to fix. Most system simply use a 3/4 inch PVC pipe to drain the water to a floor drain or sink. when (not if) this drain clogs the drain pan over flows (especially when the fan stops) and you have a mess.
Fixing this problem is rather easy. Simply take a wet dry vacuum and **** the drain line clean, 9 times out of 10 this will fix it and that is the last of this problem you will have for a few years. If the drain pan is really dirty then you will have to take the covers off the unit and vacuum it out. In extreme cases you may have to use compressed air, nitrogen or CO2 to blow out the drain line (expect a big mess at the other end).If you don't have either avaliable you can use the Garden hose to flush the line backwards (expect an even bigger mess on the other end)
In rare cases you may actually have a hole in the coil drain pan in which case the coil or the pan will have to be replaced especially if it is steel (but this is rare). In other rare cases we have had situations where grease or oil fumes from the furnace have condensed on the coil and caused the water to fall off the coil. When this happens you must clean the coil with soap or some solvent.
If the coil is totally stopped up the back pressure from the fan/blower can force the water out of the pan by undermining the bottom of the coil. When the coil is this dirty the coil usually needs to be replaced. You will also notice little or no air flow.
In most cases these condensate leaks are a do it yourself repair. Only if you must take the unit apart and can't, do you really need to call for help.Here is a device that will allow you to clean the drain with ease and
not have to take it apart each time.

Troubleshooting guide


It is normal for properly maintained AC unit to condensate, as the coil drops below dew point it will condensate the water in the coil cabinet and water should flow out condensate drain.
causes... drain stopped up .... correction.. clear drain. Other causes could be low air flow... Dirty Filter.. Dirty Coil ... Obstructions to discharge air grills closed or blocked... others
could be improper Refrigerant charge, Dirty blower vanes blower cabinet not level. All things easily corrected with a Service call by a reputable service company. Good Luck I hope this helped you.

Bad condenser unit GOODMAN


it is a 3 ton condensor you still can buy r22 freon condensors new but they have nitrogen charge and its expensive to charge I recommend to go with 3 ton goodman condensor which is new 410a puron and also change indoor coil and flush the line set so you dont endure the high cost of new copper lines these new systems come with 10 years warranty and the r22 systems come with only five years

Goodman air condenser is humming but the fan does not come on


The most likely cause is the fan motor has failed. If it turns free then see if the capacitor is bad. Turn off the power remove the capacitor. Your local supply houses can test it for you.

WATER LEAK BOTTOM OF UNIT


If this is a central AC, the
condensation drips off the cooling coils into a pan. From the pan, it is suppose to either go into a drain directly or into a sump, which in turn pumps it into a drain. Dirt or mold frequently plug the drain out of the pan or the drain line itself. You need to clear the drain with a wire or forced air. If there is a trap in the drain line, it may be plugged. If there is a trap and the line is not draining from the trap into a sewer, then I suggest you remove the trap, which is intended to block sewer gas from coming up the drain line. If it doesn't drain into a sewer, there is no sewer gas to block and the trap is unnecessary. The credulous building code requires the trap, regardless of whether or not the unit drains into a sewer.

If you are talking about a window unit, the problem is similar - the water is being blocked from where it is supposed to drain. With a window unit the water is usually picked up by the fan that cools the
condenser (hot coils) on the outside of the unit. The fan sprays the water on the hot coils and evaporates it so it doesn't drip out of the unit.

WATER LEAKING FROM GOODMAN UNIT, NO AIR COMING OUT


! shut it down but leave the indoor fan on. check the filters and replace as needed. It also appears the drain is plugged or iced up. If ou can access the indoor coil you can service the drain and run some hot water thru the pan that catches the condensate. If you can see your indoor coil and you see a "lint blanket" on the indoor coil you will have to vacume it off as well. I hope this helps let me know Jon

Condensate drain not working. Water driping from entire attic unit. Have flushed and vaccumed line to no avail. Secondary tray does drain but water drips outside the tray area. American Srandard Allegiance...


the drain coming off the unit is the one you need to clear, not the secondary pan. its usually clogged in the P trap which is usaully not far downstream from the outlet on the coil.

Condensation Leaking through unit


This may be caused by an un level unit, or the A-coil itself may be un level did you move it when you replaced the fan motor? The second thing to check is the fitting at the condensate drain pan to make sure the weld has not broken or the fitting has not been stressed or bent and have a small crack.

Hope this helps Ya
