If the unit is newer, there is a PVC male adapter that screws into the condensate pan. Typically they don't come loose unless it has been stepped on acidentally (attic install). The main condensate drain sounds like it is clogged. You can use compressed air to blow it out or try and run a small snake through it.

Why is my air con leaking out the front of it I want to get to the overflow pipe inside but dont know how to remove the front caseing other than the filter part


Check where the condensate pipe goes onto the ground first as sometime spiders or wasps will block the end of the pipe. It is unlikely that the pipe is blocked inside although as you have seen the water does flow out inside..

Ac unit is leaking water out the front into the house whats the reason


Be sure you have the air cond tilted back away from the house. If you have a level, set it on top of the air cond and make sure the unit is tilted back by a half bubble. If you still get water in the house, the drain is stopped up in the unit and you will have to take it out of the window and out of the case and wash it out good.

WATER LEAKING


Water should come out of the back of a wind unit when it is humid out, usually a drain hole. If water is leaking inside from a window unit, check that the outside drail hole is not clogged or maybe it is not tilted downward enough outside (Usually a very slight tilt down toward the outside to help the water drasin out the back outside). Also, if you have excess water forming, you may need to clean the coil. For central air units water should be drippng outside the home via a pipe or tubing and if the drain tube or pipe is clogged with scum that forms inside the pipe water will back up and overflow in the house near the heater/air conditioning unit. Also, some units have a pump to pump the water out and it may not be working.

The water that drains from the airconditioner to outsied is clogged up and not draining how can i unclogg it myself?


I can tell you a few stories of my own - I've had this problem myself and water will eventually build up and leak inside your house - you don't want it to leak on your electrical outlet ! I do not know how long you had this unit or how old is it, but these things can happen over time due to dirt, dust or other foreign objects or rust. Some AC units have fan spinning and picking up the water and spraying it on evaporators, most of it should be evaporated - only excess humidity will cause dripping - on older models water should drip outside through an opening or two at the back of the AC unit.

Make sure your AC is not level, and is tilted about 20 degrees outside, allowing the water to flow outside the AC unit.

You will need to find a way to access your AC unit from outside, locate the areas where the water drips normally, you should see openings, using an object (paper clip, pipe cleaner, etc.) try to insert it in the holes back and forth until you dislodge whatever is blocking the hole - be careful not to damage the very deliate fins at the back of your AC.

if still no water drips then take a ladder and climb up and you shuold be able to see from the inside there should be a slope or container where water accumulates before dripping out, is there ANY water there ? If you mostly see water farther away then your AC is probably not tilted enough to allow water to flow out.

If there is neither any water towards the outer edge where it drips, nor inside, farther away nor dripping inside your home, then it is probably being all evaporated or your humidity level is under control. The more your air has moisture the more water will be produced inside your AC, any excess moisture will accumulate inside your AC - if your AC manages to evaporate all of it, and no leaks inside, good for you, I wouldn't touch it.

Another tip - when you shut down your AC, do you hear swishing and unusual sounds of water ? that could mean accumulated water not being evacuated - Although it IS normal for some stagnant water to remain in your AC - do not worry about that, as long as it doesn't leak inside.

My Daewoo DSB 091L unit has started to drip condensate from the casing joint underneath the front drainage tray. I have cleaned the blocked drain pipe and proved the water drains away. The condensate drip...


Make sure that the flexible pipe is securely connected to the drainpan, it can come adrift and cause leaking. The way to check this is to make sure everything is dried out completely. Then open the front grill and carefully pour water so that it goes only into the drip pan. Pour slowly so that you do not overflow the pan. If water is coming out on the outside and you have no leaks on the inside, then you can rule out the perished or disconnected drainpipe theory. In this case your unit may be short of refrigerant causing excessive run time and a freeze up of the evaporator.
