Question about Heating & Cooling
Recently got a used zenith zw5000t8 air conditioner. We've been running it for about 2 to 3 wks now. Today we noticed that its leaking water/condensation. How do we fix this, or is it even a problem?

First, make sure the unit is level. If so, you have a blockage or kink in the drain tube. Careful inspection should reveal any blockage, & you may be able to poke it thru with a piece of coathanger wire. Don't use excessive force, any block should be easily freed.

Sounds like the drain line is blocked you would have to take this unit apart in order to check this. I would use a can of air to blow out the leakage. Also make sure the unit is level

You mean it's leaking around the AC's unit base? If so, here's a handy diagnostic article that specifically addresses this problem of yours, explaining the probable causes and solutions, a solution that may very well have to do with the condensation pump's malfunction or just debris blockage, among other things: http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Home_Improvement_Zone_Cooling_Ventilation_Systems_Central_Air_Conditioning_Creates_Water_Puddle.htm This article should set you on your way! Good luck! Brad

It probably has a clogged condensate drain. Take off the cover on top the RV and check hoses or tubes leaving unit for debris or lint. Often this water is used to help cool the condenser so look for leaves pine needles etc in the pan. There may be a cover you can remove on the evaporator section that will allow you to clean the collection pan and hose or trough. Is it possible the RV is far enough out of level that the condensate can't "run uphill"? Always power off while working on this unit unless you are electric savvy. Good luck!

Remove all covers and look down with them removed and see if the coil drain pan has a stopped up exit where the water drains out and into the rear of the AC unit.
If the unit is off level it could cause a draining problem too.
