Sounds like
the extractor is mounted in a cold space, and the moist air is condensing on the cold fan as it exits,
the fan housing may need better insulation, and the flap valve in the exhaust pipe needs to be checked to ensure it is closing, and keeping cold air out
it is possible that condensate in the fan has fried the motor

something to check

Brand New 2 weeks old 4 ton Trane compressor leaks a lot of water onto pad


If the unit is running in cold weather than there is ice building up on the coils located outside. This is normal in that the unit is running in heat pump mode heating inside and cooling outside, After the unit detects the ice build up it briefly reverses the cycle heating the outside coils melting(defrosting) the ice which you observe as water on the pad.

The video gives you an example of the defrost cycle!

2001 L seriers got some kind of liquid think its water all in floor board


This is probably the condensate water from the unit or rain water is getting in. If it is condensate then something is clogged preventing the water from draining outside. (the unit should be tilted a bit to help water drain to outside.) If it is not condensate then the weather barrier around the unit has failed and rain is getting in. You need to fix this promptly before the water damages interior items.

My Dometic AC is mounted on a sloped roof (as are a lot today). However in humid weather when the AC is putting out a lot of water, the fast speed of the fan pulls water out of the evaporator pan and...


Clean air filter and evaporator coil periodically. And also insulate tightly for the pipelines including drain pipe also. The heat hose observe the water over the pipelines and evaporate. Thanks and helpful?

Rv ac unit leaks, even when fan only


Where the pipes enter the building, look carefully there for a bad seal. Use a good quality sealant and block the leak properly. If there is no rain, and the unit is leaking still with the fan on only, then you have an issue with the drain pipe angle or a kinked pipe or a blockage. Suggest you have it seen to by a aircon. technician as that repair is really not easy.(AC will possibly have to come out to rectify problem).

A lot of rain came in through the unit and now it won't run.


bad installation, no there is not a fuse, if the unit has digital controls they are probably fried, if it has the old style turn knobs you probably have shorted the run capacitorwhich can be in a few places but usually low in the unit, just look around, unplug of course and take apart make sure capacitor is not swollen

Hello, I have a Haier window AC unit that makes the worst noises- sounds like a crinckeling plastic bag is being beaten around inside. It seems to be water building up, but there is no drainage holes in...


Yeah the water that has pooled underneath is being hit by the fan, and throwing it everywhere. Don't be alarm it wont hurt nothing except the noise is irritating specially at night. Getting rid of the water will get rid of the noise.

Fan does not turn but motor seems to be running fine


Rain should not affect an outdoor unit. It is designed to be outside. The motor that you are hearing... could this just be your compressor running? If the condenser fan is not operational the compressor will run much louder. TURN THE POWER OFF! See if the fan will spin freely if it is pushed. If it doesn't replace the fan motor. If it does you need to check the power at the contactor going to the condenser fan motor. This is 220 volts BE CAREFULL.. If power is going to the motor and the motor is not running... Change the motor and capacitor. If no power is going to it it could be a bad contactor.
Good luck....

Split Unit Spitting water


Do you live in an area of high humidity? This could be your problem. The water that is coming off the evaporator and draining to the outside pan is building up and picked up by the condensor fan and consequently blown by the fan inside. If this is the problem the fix is to drill a hole in the pan to permit the water to drain from the pan. Be careful as to where the hole is drilled so as to not damage any component of the a/c. I would suggest at least a 1/4 inch drill bit be used to make the hole.

Water leaking from A/C


ok this unit should have a silicone seal around the pan so water does not collect under it if old silicone is worn away scrape old silicone away and redo new silicone around unit so it sits properly make sure all the water is gone before sealing because you run the risk of mold build up under it; let it dry or help it dry thats up to you

but would like little more info on what this is on
