Check the drain tubes inside the furnace. There may be a loose connection or a split tube.
The unit could also leak from the gasket between the secondary heat exchanger and the vent fan housing. The secondary heat exchanger ould also be leaking or cracked.
Hope this helps.

Water was leaking from the base of my HVAC furnace, and not from the drain hose as it had on other occassions. I blew out the drain hose, changed filters, etc etc. Finally paid a guy $100 to come out. In 30 seconds he fixed it. So I asked questions on HVAC maintenance for another 20 minutes just to get my money's worth in education.

The fitting between the furnace and the drain hose unscrews. Whereas I had pulled the hose off of the 90 degree angled, corregated fitting that looked to be permanently attached with a cement or putty, he easily unscrewed the whole fitting. The clog was in the 90 degree angle part. Detaching and cleaning the hose and fitting are now part of my Spring self-maintenance.

An honest HVAC service would have recommended that over the phone before scheduling the repair guy. It cost me $100, it cost the company a 4 year client. Found a better HVAC guy who works independently.

    So the HVAC services phone person is expected to troubleshoot your furnace on the phone?

Ruud achiever 90 plus furnace-water leaks from the drain pipe


This furnace should condense, as long as it goes into the drain. If it is leaking inside the furnace, there may be a seal that needs replacing in either the pvc drain pipe or concentric drain trap needs resealed.

There is water leaking out from the bottom of my furnace. It leaks whenever the ac is running.


Hello, sounds like a clogged condensate line or a faulty condensate pump if the unit has one. Cleaning the drain line should fix the problem.

I have a Goodman system and I have water leaking from the the small box next to my furnace. I have what looks like 3 lines running from unit to this box. One is a small copper one, another is a line...


the clear plastic hose is the condensate drain .. indeed they clog frequently .. lthat will allow water to overflow the pan that is desined to capture condensed water from the evaporator.. the plastic hose and the pipe it is attached to need to be cleaned out periodically ... allowing water to overflow can damage other things so its important to get the drain cleared .. however that drain has little to do with cooling efficiency .. your lack of cooling performance could be another problem ... sometimes the evaporator coil gets clogged (large finned unit behind where the overflow hose is attached inside furnace) .. that has to be cleaned once in a while but is tricky to do ... how often depends on how good the furnace air filter is and how often its changed ... as the evaporator becomes clogged with dust the cooling efficiency goes down .. same with the outdoor unit ... you have to wash out leaves and such periodically from the condenser coils .... if every thing is clean but the cooling efficiency is still low then have the unit checked for refrigerrant pressure .. it could be low .. of course make sure the furnace filter is not clogged ... also for cooling make sure all of the registers are open ... closing some can reduce overall efficiency ... make sure the outdoor unit fan is working properly ..

You mean the main plumbing supply to the house? NO WAY! Something is terribly wrong somewhere but not in your unit.

My furnace is leaking water when the heat is running


You probably have a 90+% efficient furnace. They produce condensation. Does it have PVC vent pipes? If so there is a drain tube for condensation.

Comfort 92 Gas heater Exhaust


the slope is downwards to furnace.The slope isnt for the moisture it is a rise for the flue gas to go outside.The intake is usually connected to the furnace to use outside air for the combustion but it does not have to be.if it isnt an option to take the pipe apart to glue it all up you can seal the water leaks with silicon.anymore questions hillbuck29@aol.com

Goodman 90% gas heater condensation build up


If the exhaust comes off the top of the furnace, you will need to make sure the condensation will drain all the way back to the condensate outlet found at the base of the inducer blower. If you are having to remove the tube from the pressure switch, there must be a blockage from the inducer down to where ever it drains to. Check to see if all tubes are free of blockages and if there is a condensate trap, clean it out. If the pressure tube you mentioned is facing up toward the blower allowing water to flow into it, reposition it so water will not enter the tube.
