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.

Hey, thanks for the post about water leaks from your furnace. My sister had a problem and I haven't heard if she got the problem fixed. I think that hiring a professional might be the best option for her, but I'm not sure if it is a simple problem or not. http://www.dependableaircond.com

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.

Furnace has water under it, why? Its a Dayton gas furnace.


There are several questions that need to be answered about what type of system you have, but i found this posting that may help:
As your gas furnace runs, is there water leaking at the base? Is the furnace's air filter wet, too?There are a few things that could be happening here. But if you have a high-efficiency furnace, here's the most common cause: a condensation leak.
We'll explain why a furnace creates condensation, and what's causing it to leak out of your furnace.
Note: You'll know if you have a high-efficiency furnace if:
  • The yellow energy guide tag says your furnace's efficiency is 90% or higher AFUE.
  • The vent/flue pipe is white PVC as opposed to metal.
Why a high-efficiency furnace creates condensation
How in the heck does a high efficiency furnace create condensation/water anyway?
It's all about how the furnace extracts heat from combustion gases.
A lower-efficiency furnace extracts some heat from combustion gases and then quickly vents them out the flue pipe.
But a high-efficiency furnace, to extract more heat, has 2 heat exchangers. These allow the furnace to extract heat from the gases for a longer period of time. This causes the combustion gases to cool and then condense.
That condensation then exits out your home through a drain. But if that water is pooling around the furnace, there's a problem preventing it from draining properly.
Causes of a condensation leak around a high-efficiency furnace
  • Clogged condensation tubing
  • Clogged condensation drain
  • Breaks in the condensation line
  • Issues with the condensate pump (if you have one)
You'll need a furnace technician to diagnose which of these is the issue and then fix it.
Other causes of leaking water around a furnace
If you have a conventional, standard-efficiency furnace...then its flue pipe may be incorrectly sized.
If you have a whole-house humidifier connected to the furnace...there may be an issue which is causing the humidifier to leak into your furnace. Your humidifier should be getting annual maintenance from a professional to prevent this.

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.

Hello, it sounds like your condensate line is clogged and not be able to drain into the condensate pump or your condensate pan is cracked and leaking. Best thing to do is clean the condensate line with a shop vac and see if the water will start to drain, if not looks like the pan is cracked.

Condensation building up in lower compartment of goodman 45btuh furnace in counterflow position 95%a.f.u.


Make sure all drains and hoses are connected to the lowest positions and that they are free of any blockage or debris. If there is not a vent or stand pipe on the drain line as it exits the furnace cabinet, put one in. A stand pipe is a Tee with a vertical pipe going up approximately 5" and allows the water to drain easily by breaking the vacuum normally experienced by the inducer blower.

Water leaking out bottom of Goodman propanefurnace drain tubes are clear. draining out under the actual furnace


Check the top of the gas flue. Make sure the cap is on it. If not it will allow rain to get inside. If this is only a furnace, this is the only thing it could be. Nothing produces water in a furnace. If it has an A/C coil attached. The condensation drain might be stopped up allowing it to leak.
