SOURCE: water leaking into the house - model AOT24RWGL

Either the drain line is clogged, or there is a hole in the pan.

Get a powerfull wet/dry shop vacume.
Attatch it to the end of the drain pipe and seal it tight and pull out any dirt, mold crud blockages.

Take the panel off so you can access the drain pan under the evap coil. Clean that out as well with the vac.

Once its nice and clean, poor a gallon or so of water into the pan bein g carefull to not pour to fast.
Make sure that the line is drainign well and look for any spots where there may be a crack, hole etc in the drain pan where water may leak out

SOURCE: Mr Slim unit "spits" water/dust mixture

some of those units are equipped with a condensat pump you could have a loose connection or a small crack in the line

SOURCE: Condensation in the furnace

The coil for the AC sits above the furnace. Two refrigerant lines enter the
plenum, usually the condensate line is on the same side and at the bottom of the plenum. Sometimes they use pvc pipe or a garden hose to drain the condensate.

Your problem is worse than that, it sounds like your indoor coil is froze up, that is why you dont have airflow, either you have a dirty filter or your fan does not work

Why is water coming out of my furnace exhaust pipe?


When natural gas or propane burns, water vapor is given off within the flu gasses so a bit of condensation in, off and around the flu discharge is quite normal. If it is a high efficiency furnace with the pvc flu pipe, they must be pitched properly BACK TO the furnace so the moisture will drain backwards and out a drain tap at the bottom of the riser. That style of furnace will have TWO drains...one up high for the air conditioner coil and one about 16" up from the bottom of the furnace off of the 'condensing coil' that the flue gasses pass through to extract a much greater amount of heat from the burned gas.

Many flu pipes are installed incorrectly which causes water to drip outside instead of back to the furnace and this usually results in huge icicles hanging off of them in the winter and eventually the partial blockage causes the flu's pressure switch to open.

If you have regular galvanized flu pipe, you have less than a 90% high efficiency furnace and the resultant flu gas temperature is much higher with a much greater quantity of water vapor in it. A little condensation is somewhat normal on the top of the flu cap as the hot moisture laden vapor comes in contact with the cold and dry outside air. If the moisture is all over the galvanized flu pipe in the basement, you are possibly venting into an oversized and unlined masonry chimney. IF that's the case, the chimney should really be lined with a flexible liner and properly connected to the furnace and water heater (if gas fired) with the proper connections and configuration.

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.

Does my furnace require outside air?


I'm surprised the building inspector allowed the condensing furnace you described draw combustion air from the garage !! I'm not familiar with any manufacturer that recommends that as normal practice. Virtuall ALL two pipe condensing furnaces require both pvc pipes to be terminated OUTSIDE the structure with specific heights and distances apart. There is also a limit to the length of both the flu and the combustion air piping and each 90 degree pvc elbow adds the resistance equivalant of roughly 10' of straight pipe. If re-routing is required, you have to bear in mind the direction of 'fall' in the piping usually goes back towards the furnace and remember two 45's may give you a greater variance of change in the piping and still be equal to the equivalant of one 90.

Personally, I would never suggest terminating the fresh air (combustion air) intake between floors of a structure.

Why is there water on my furnace when the a/c is running?


Condensate normally drains into a pan that either empties into a floor drain by gravity or empties into a pump inlet for discharge outside. The drain pan may be clogged, preventing it from emptying or, more likely, the drain pan is leaking condensate.

How do you install circuit board in atwood furnace 8525? do I need to disassemble most of the furnace to do this?


I am not familiar with the model number. I have worked on all types of equipment and have never seen a system that required major dis-assembly to replace a board. What does it look like from the outside? Up flow furnace, through the wall with a split condenser, horivontal residential? Tell me what you can and l"ll probably be able to tell you exactly where and how. Thanks for trying Fixya.

Furnace blowing warm air, ac overheats


Sounds like it is tripping on it's high pressure switch. This could be caused by a dirty condenser coil, overcharge of refrigerant, or non condensables in the system ( air most likely). I would get a second opinion from a repuatable company, sounds like he's trying to rip you off.

The furnace is running but there is no cool air. I change my filters every month and I flushed out the water lines last month.


flushing out water lines do you mean condensate line coming off the furnace that drain to the outside. is the condensing unit outside running when u have it in cooling mode. by condensing unit I mean the unit outside that has lines that run to the inside. does that turn on when u have it in cooling. the unit outside have two components that should turn on the outdoor condenser fan and a compressor.

Honeywell furnace humidifier thermostat & other


sounds like to me you have a condensation pump attached to your hvac system. this can be used to pump water produced during the cooling of your house when in the a/c mode. if you have a typical bypass humidifier, you will have excess water running past the water panel and it must be sent to a drain of some kind. I would imagine the pump is being used to get your bypass water to the drain. another scenario may be that you have a 90% condensing furnace. if your exhaust pipe for the furnace is made out of pcv pipe, it is a condensing gas furnace. it will produce water when it is running. the water if from the combustion gases being condensed in the secondary heat exchanger. this is normal. some condensing gas furnaces will draw combustion air from inside the house and some will have a second pvc pipe that is used to pulll combustion air from the outside of the house. either way, it is not dehumidifying your house. the humidifier should be able to keep up if it is runnng properly. you should have water running out the bottom drain of the humidifier any time the fan on your furnace is running and the humidistat is calling for humidity. if this is not happening, it is not wired properly.
