SOURCE: Excessive water dripping from Central A/C drian line

sounds like the overflow drain is picking up the water that means the main drain is clogged.you need to find the main drain pipe if lookin at the air handler in attic there should be 2 drains from unit one higher than other follow it and blow out drain they put the other overflow drain out the eve so if it stars leaking someone notices it and it doesnt damage cieling but it sound like it needs imediate attention befor it does go to the overflow pan and damage your cieling. i hope this helps and good luck

SOURCE: All my other AC Units

If you have a CENTRAL air unit, you should have an overflow to a drain in the furnace area. So I don't understand what you are saying about a connection to the drain under the sink!

Do you have the make and model correctly listed? Because with your question it does not agree what I know about the Ruud Central air that you listed.

SOURCE: it's a small window unit made by ADMIRAL and i

From what you have described, it sounds like the drip pan's drain hole, near the rear of the unit is clogged and/or there is not enough downward tilt on the rear of the unit. The general rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2" downward tilt.

The drain hole can be a challenge to find, as the clog will blend in with the drain hole. Persistence and patience while looking for it will help. A pipe cleaner works well to clear the drain hole.

Be sure to turn the unit OFF & unplug it before attempting and maintenance.

Hope this helped you ans thanks for choosing FixYa.

The outer drain hole is the only one that needed to be cleared. But, keep and eye on it, as there may be some floating debris in the drip pan. You said the unit is angled enough at the rear. So, I'm assume you have at least 1/4" to 1/2" downward tilt at the rear of the unit. If that's the case, for now, that's about all you can do. Unless you have a Wet/Dry Shop Vac. In which case you could **** the water out of the drip pan after removing the front panel of the unit. If you attempt this, be sure the Master ON/OFF switch on the unit is OFF and the unit is unplugged.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Coleman Mach 48000 series roof top A/C in my camper & recently it's been dripping heavily inside the camper. We looked at the top & inside for a clogged line & can't find anything, suggestions?


I had the same problem but it wasn't a clogged drain line, it was the gasket between the roof of the camper and the AC unit. The gasket had shrunk and pulled apart allowing rain water in. To make sure you don't have a clogged drain line when using the AC do you notice water dripping off the camper anywhere besides inside? You should have some drips somewhere on the outside.

My Carrier Infinity system Model FE4A is leaking water from the bottom of the unit on to the basement floor. How do I stop the leak?


have your HVAC technician check the pressures in your unit...sounds like you may have low pressure. You should NOT be having any ice build up to melt off.

There is not any condensed water coming out the back of the unit. Is this a problem?


the amount of condensate water is related to how much humidity the unit is pullling from the cooling space.

It's possible that water is actually dripping from the unit and it is so little you're not noticing it.

However, if the unit is 'cooling' ok - I would not worry about the lack of water - unless - water starts to drip "inside" from the front of the unit - in which case you will have a problem with the drain.

You could also check the unit and make sure it has a slight tilt to the outside.

Also, you could check and see if the drain hole is clogged up - preventing water from draining.

Hope this helps.

Water dripping from air con use


If the unit is mounted on an outside wall check the condensate drain that comes out with the line-set to the outdoor unit. If the pipping goes up into the attic than you have a small condensate pump that may have failed. The float in the pump may have stuck in the down position not allowing the pump to come on.

Dripping water from pan or coils


If the a-coil is on the suction side of the blower, the drain line needs to be trapped. take enough hose to make a circle below the drain fitting and then into the drain. The blower causes a suction up the drain line if it is not trapped and will not let the water go out the hose.

Hotpoint MAC-130 air conditioner dripping water


You need to blow out the drain line where it hooks up to the pan and clean out the drip pan. It doesn't matter how clean you keep the filter, that's just to keep the evaporator coils clean, which is important in itself. But algae will grow in the drip pan if it is not tilted to drain correctly and will clog up the drain line. If you put a level on the top of the unit, the bubble should JUST BARELY break the line on the OPPOSITE side from the drain outlet on the pan. Hope this helps.

If you are running it in the cooling function, your drain maybe backed up. Find your drain outside if you can and suck it with a shop vac.
