My fujitronic FA1300 leaks water. Not sure how to drain it

Posted by on

  • Susan Miya Jan 01, 2013

    The Fujitronic FA1300 is a portable floor a/c and I tried removing 4 of the screws which took off the back plate and then there are the grills which I can't remove. I still don't see a tray to take out. There is a hose which leads to the underside of the A/C, but no water is coming out of the hose. I hear the sloshing of water inside the A/C unit. I think the hose may be blocked which makes the tray overflow. Anyone know how to get to the inside of the hose? Or any suggestions to get to the water inside? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

hi friend,

Instructions

  1. Step 1 Pull the air conditioner from the window on a mild, sunny spring day. The sun shine will help in rapidly drying out the air conditioner after you perform the next routine process.
  2. Step 2 Place the air unit on a firm surface. Preferably a concrete slab or a few old boards. Do not place the unit on grass or dirt.
  3. Step 3 Use the screwdriver and remove the outer metal housing of the air conditioner. There are generally 4 to 6 screws along the lower edge of the cover that holds it to the frame.
  4. Step 4 Observe the inside of the air unit. Note that there is a plastic drain tray on the bottom. This drain tray carries away the condensation water from the cooling coil and allows it to flow to the outdoors and drip to the ground. The drain tray is plugged from last seasons collection of dust and bacteria growth.
  5. Step 5 Use the cup measure and pour some house bleach into the plastic tray. Allow the bleach to "work" on the nasty solids that have collected there for about 5 to 10 minutes.
  6. Step 6 Connect the gardenmag-glass_10x10.gif hose to the outdoor spigot and attach the spray nozzle to the hose.
  7. Step 7 Spray in the interior of the air unit with the moderate pressure from the spray nozzle. Force the water into the plastic drain tray and remove all of the solid debris that is laying there. Spray the interior and exterior coils as well since you have the unit cover off. You will have to remove the interior filter as well. Clean the filter while it is exposed.
  8. Step 8 Place another cup of bleach into the plastic drain tray and allow the liquid cleaner to set for about 5 to 10 minutes than thoroughly rinse the unit with fresh water. The inside area should be thoroughly clean.
  9. Step 9 Allow the unit to completely dry in the sun. When dry, replace the exterior cover and place the unit back into the window. The unit will be cured of leaking for another cooling season.
Tips & Warnings
  • Weekly cleanings of the interior filter will help in alleviating bacteria build up in the drain tray. Living in an outdoor dusty environment may create the need to perform the bleach cleaning more than just once a year

FA 1300 NOT COOLING WELL. IT SEEMS TO KICK ON BUT THEN TURNS OFF AND IS NOT BLOWING COLD AIR


Hi there. If unit just starts to get cold then the compressor shuts off and if the compressor comes back on after 3 to 5 minutes, the system has a freon leak or the compressor is over heating.
If you are technically inclined, search for leaks using soapy water at all tubing connections.
For overheating compressor: Clean the condenser with compressed air or vacuum cleaner. If still overheating, start switch or start capacitor may be bad.
Thanks

Fujitronic 1300 ~ compressor does not stay on and not overly cold


sounds like the units compressor is shutting off. this could be caused by being low on freon, or a dirty condensor coil. the condensor coil is where the hor air exits the unit. make sure it is clean, free of lint/dirt. if it is clean, you will need to take it in to a repair shop and have the coolant leak found/repaired and then recharge the unit.

WATER LEAKS UNDER THE SINK WHEN DISHWASHER IS IN


Check the connection to the drain tailpiece from the dishwasher under the sink and make sure the clamp hasn't slipped off and is tight. Check the drain hose from the dishwasher and be sure it's not split or damaged. Check the drain spur on the drain tailpiece and see if it's corroded or leaking. Check the trap under the sink as well and make sure it's not leaking.
