My frigidaire air conditioner is making my apartment feel damp and when i took my filter out to clean it that part was damp too! What do I do to fix this?


You may have a clogged drain or the unit is installed without enough angle pitch for the water to drain to the back of the unit toward the outdoor section of the unit. I'm assuming it's a window air conditioner? The moisture condenses on the cooling coil near the filter and should drip down into a condensate drain pan, then the water should drain to the back of the unit into a pan at the condenser coil fan that is rejecting the heat outside. The fan blade usually has a ring on the outdoor fan that pick up the condensate moisture the fling accumulated water onto the hot condenser coil to evaporate it. Also the filter should not be touching the cooling coil. Make sure it in the correct slot. Some a/c cooling coil require a wetting agent that allow the water to slide down the coil and not pull off of the coil into the indoor circulating fan.

Water does not evaporate why?


That air conditioner has a cooling coil that drips water into a formed plastic pan at the bottom that the coil sits in. The condenser sits in a pan similar to the pan previously mentioned. The pans are connected by a tube that allows the cooling coil water to find its way to the outside area under the condenser. The condenser fan outside has a ring attached to the end of the blades called a sling ring. As the fan spins it picks the water up and "slings" the water against the condenser thus getting rid of the water through evaporation and giving the air conditioner an additional 13 percent more capacity. If you drill drain holes I have seen units quit working because that additional capacity is engineered into heat rejection. Hope I helped good luck.

My coleman air conditioner 7300 series is leaking water on the inside


Water in an air conditioner is generally condensation building up on the indoor coil. This happens when the temperature of the coil is below the current dew point of the atmosphere. You have possibly two issues going on.

1) the condensation drip line, which carries the water to the outside is blocked or disconnected (most likely blocked with wet dust build up etc) and can typically be cleared by using an air hose to blow the blockage clear.

2) excessive water can be an indicator that you may have a slow leak in the refrigerant system. reduced pressures will lower the temperature of the coil causing it to condense more water, more frequently. While you might enjoy the seeming better performance of the unit, if there is a leak it will eventually reach a point where the water will freeze(cutting off the air flow so no cooling) and eventually stop working altogether. Have a certified technician check your system for leaks. Remember that most rooftop units use R-22 refrigerant, not R-134a automotive refrigerant. The wrong refrigerant in the system can be very damaging to components and seals, and can cause the unit to function improperly.

Water collecting in the pan underneath the fridge.


it should do this but the water should evaporate from the heat from the condenser and compressor,when the machine goes into defrost a heater comes on and melts all the frost off of the coil,the water drains down into the pan where the water will evaporate,when was the last time you cleaned out the condenser coil?remove the front bottom kick panel and check the coil,if it's filled with dust it has to be cleaned out at least once a year especially if you have a cat or dog,then pull out the machine unplug it or shut off the control and remove the bottom back panel,the easiest way to do this is to vac up as much dust as you can with a shop vac,then set it for blow by putting the hose on the other end of the shop vac and blow the dust out of the coil,you can buy a condenser brush that will remove dust thats stuck inside the coil but the shop vac works great,through the condenser this is how the heat escapes out of the machine,also clean off the fan motor in the rear,also there are plastic water lines that come out of the water valve that could be cracked going to the ice maker and water dispenser or the valve itself could be cracked causing this problem or the pan could have a crack in it,very unusual for the pan to overflow,when you're done cleaning it plug it back in,make sure the fan is running fine and have someone fill a cup of water and check the plastic lines coming from the valve to see if it leaks,pull out the pan and check it for cracks,fill it up at the sink and check it,if everything looks good you can shut off the water valve that goes to the fridge for a few days and keep an eye on the pan,like i say it's unusual for the pan to overflow just from the defrost water,if the water is evaporating with the water shut off then you have a crack in one of the water lines going to the ice maker or dispenser

WATER LEAKING FROM GOODMAN UNIT, NO AIR COMING OUT


! shut it down but leave the indoor fan on. check the filters and replace as needed. It also appears the drain is plugged or iced up. If ou can access the indoor coil you can service the drain and run some hot water thru the pan that catches the condensate. If you can see your indoor coil and you see a "lint blanket" on the indoor coil you will have to vacume it off as well. I hope this helps let me know Jon

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.

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.

Our A/C unit is leaking between the inside unit and the heating unit. We've had two repairmen out. Both seemed confident that the lines were clogged and both blew them out. The a/c is still leaking. It...


Could be the pan under the evaporator has holes in it. Did the technicians pull the coil to check for holes in the pan? At the very least, after blowing out the condensate lines they should have poured water into the pan to check for proper drainage and to ensure there were no leaks in the evaporator's drain pan.

It could also be an issue with not having a trap installed in the condensate line. On some sytems that have the condensate line and evaporator coil on the suction side of the fan, no trap installed will allow the water to be sucked back into the pan and eventually may cause the water to spill over the pan. Having the trap installed insures the water will drain properly. It could also be an improperly installed trap that allows air leakage. To give you an example, if the condensate comes off the pan and goes to a tee (used often as a port for blowing or cleaning out the line) and the tee is not capped off when not being used for cleaning purposes, this will allow air to be sucked back through the tee and prevents the water from flowing through the tee and onto the trap.25011e4.png You were correct in not running the unit as water can drip down into a fan motor below the pan and cause it to short out.

One other issue that comes up from time to time is the inability for water (condensate) to drain or trickle down the face of the evaporator coil. This is usually due to dirt blocking the fins of the coil and the condensate accumulates on other portions of the coil and when it hits the blockages of dirt or other debris, it doesn't perform its usual capillary action and follow the fins down into the drain pan, but instead stops, accumulates and then falls straight down into the lower sections. Check the coil's fin surfaces for dirt or other debris. If present, have the coil cleaned.

There are only a few ways that water can be leaking out of the back of the unit and neither are very easy. Since you have said the unit was taken out and cleaned, it's hard to imagine that the coil drain pan has clogged up already, but it is possible. And since it's a newer model, I would think that it would have a plastic drain pan inside which would have to be cracked in order to leak. Either of these have to be checked by removing the flue pipe in front, which shouldn't have more than 3 screws holding it to the furnace if any, then gently trying to twist or move it until it either comes loose from the joint or able to move out of the way. Then you have to take the front cover of the coil box which is usually held on with 1/4in or 5/16in screws. Sometimes this can be really fun, just have some patients, and remove the cover. If the copper lines are in the way, you might have to cut the metal with some tin snips and tape it back up good after reinstalling it. Some installers don't think about servicing the unit when the put it all together. After removing the cover, you will be able to see the drain pan and what exactly it is doing. If the pan is full of water with the unit on, then your pan or your drain line is clogged. If your drain line is clogged, you will either need a high pressure hose to blow it out like a co2 drain tool or you will need the lines replaced. If you have no water build up inside the pan, then the pan is busted and will have to be replaced. Condensate pumps are usually only used when there is no place to place a drain line inside your utility closet and it would sit on the outside of the furnace. It's a lot, but I hope it helps!

Water leaking from base of unit during operation


dehumidification is something that AC units do as a by-product of cooling so yes, it is acting as a dehumidifier. there is a coil (copper tubing snaking back and forth through metal fins like on a radiator) that water condenses on and drips off of. That water will fall in to a pan and then will either evaporate or run through a drain. Make sure the path from the coil to the drain pan is clear. The water will either drip down (pan sloped to a corner or hole) or run through a tube to the drain pan. The drain pan is the part that had the drain plug in it. If that pan was dry the condensate is reaching the pan. If it is full that means either the drain is plugged up or the unit is pulling humidity out of the air faster than it can evaporate. Check to make sure any drain tube is clear and that the path for the condensate (water) is sloped the right way - not shaken loose or tipped to the wrong side.
That should get you started. Let me know if I can be of any other help.

Good Luck!
