SOURCE: GMPN goodman furnace: Water leaks from the base.

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.

SOURCE: need location of drain pipe on horizontal attic a/c unit?

If you have a shop vac (wet vac) I suggest finding the drain outlet and sucking the restriction out. However if you don't then you need to open the air handler (coil) and pour about a cup of Bleach, not drain cleaner in to the coil drain pan. The restriction is likely in the trap ( U shaped piece of pvc). Good luck!

It sound like the coil inside could be dirty. I have had the same problem with air handlers, when the coil is dirty or the filter is dirty it creates a back pressure and causes the condensation to drip off away from the condensation pan. Try accessing the coil on the inside see if it is dirty, if it is clean it lightly with soapy water and a brush and be carefull not to bend the fins on the coil. If it is clean double check the condensation hose and inlet for the hose for foreign matter.

Water leak


The most common reasons for water leaking from the unit are:
1- Condensate drain line clogged, needs cleared.
2- System is freezing up, causing excessive water to overflow, check filter, fan motor, thermostat, and batteries.
If there is ice on the lines on the indoor or outdoor unit, the system is frozen. If it's a charging issue, make sure system is thawed completely before calling anyone. They will not be able to do anything until system is thawed out and will cause you to wait longer.

I have a new Goodman unit which leaks everywhere. The drain pipe is hooked up and draining but there is water coming from the middle of the unit somewhere. What could be the problem?


The plastic drain pan has alternate drain connections, one for primary and one for secondary(backup drain). Make sure the proper outlet is being used for primary(the one with complete hole opening)drain. Another problem may be a cracked drain pan. If a Electric heating system with pull through coil then it will need a drip guard installed.
*Make sure all unused connections are capped off.

My Carrier AC is leaking from the inside connection to where the white PVC tubing connects to. The padding inside is soaked and when I press it, it is filled with water. It continuosly drips down water...


If this unit is new more than likely the condesate drain line does not have a deep U shaped "trap"in it. This allows the negative air pressure inside the unit to draw air up thru the drain line holding the water inside the cabinet until the fan shuts off, then the water can drop out of the unit everywhere.

If the system has been in foe some time and has the proper "trap" the drain line could be plugged any where there is a turn in the pipe. It is a messy clean out but it can be done by cutting the straight PVC pipe, right after the screw in fitting and the 90. This will allow you to unscrew the fitting at the unit and clean it out. Sometime there is a gel like clog that grows at this point. Then you can take a wire or compressed air to clean out the rest of the line to the outlet. Next pour hot water thru the PVC and see how it comes out the end. Worst case you will need to pour a solution of hot water and white vinegar to remove any build up.

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.

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 ..

My attic Goodman Air Conditioning unit is leaking down through the ceiling drywall. What are some of the possible problems and how do I fix them?


Ours did that. It was low on freon causing ice to form on the unit in the attic. The ice would melt causing the leaking down the drywall. We had a hvac rep. add freon. Cost will depend on how much is needed - we spent about $100. Afterward, we touched the spot on the wall up with Kilz & matched up with leftover paint in the shed. Good as new!

Washer empties faster than pipes allow causing overflow


More then likely you have a partial clogged drain also, New washer output is alot faster, Being a plumber its not getting enough air to let it drain properly. Check drain for clog and vent is wrking properly

Water leaks in the house from under the unit.There is a drain pipe that leads to the outside but we dont know if that pipe gets clogged or needs service.


Open up the inside unit pannel where the drain pipe is and you'll see a drain pan where the condensation water runs out to the drain , clean the drain pan and the hole and then with air pressure from an air compressor blow the drain from inside to outside and go outside the house where the drain discharged and you'll see the clogh that came out from the drain . To keep the drain clean , pour a cup of bleach or clorox every 3 or 4 months through the drain and in the drain pan.
