Zenith air conditioner zw5000t8

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?

SOURCE: Water leaking from portable air conditioner

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.

SOURCE: Water leaking from portable air conditioner

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: This article should set you on your way! Good luck! Brad

SOURCE: coleman tsr rv air conditioner leaks into rv when running

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!

SOURCE: My dometic RV rooftop air conditioner is leaking

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.

My air conditioner worked fine last night, but when I tried to turn it on today in the 101 heat, it displayed E1 (blinking). I've unplugged it because it would not let me turn it off either.

If your air conditioner displays E1 in the display panel and won't turn on, it means that the Room Thermistor (a device connected to the thermostat that detects room temperature) is shorted or defective, and you need to have your air conditioner serviced

I have 2 Samsung AW0700/XAA air conditioners that leak water all over floor. We've tried tipping them to get water out but didn't work. How do we stop leak?

inside the unit on the left side of the evaporator coil there should be a channel that allows the water to drain to the outside of the unit and cool the condenser coil use compressed air to clean this channel (a.k.a. keyboard cleaner) were safty glasses and make sure unit is unplugged then check drain to make sure it is clear before running the unit.

We cleaned the coils outside. Now the compressor only stays on about 30 seconds and shuts off. It will come again in approximately 4 minutes. The fan outside and the blower inside stays on. We have a...

sounds like it's cycling on the high pressure cut-out switch. Note: it could be a low-pressure switch that is causing the cycling but most units (today) don't have low pressure switches. If your unit has either of these two switches it will (usually) be the high pressure switch, although it's possible it has the low pressure switch too. My guess is it only has a 'high pressure cut-out.'
I would seriously look at the coil again and make sure you've cleaned it real good.
Many Carrier Air Conditioners have what is called a SPLIT coil. If this is what you have you will need to (WITH ALL POWER OFF) disassemble the outside unit enough to where you can manually pull these coils apart (be careful - you just need to get a small gap between them) and wash IN BETWEEN the two coils.
Pretty difficult to do - but doable.
It's possible you have an overcharged unit - but unless you've recently had it charged I would not suspect this.
If it is not the high pressure switch - and 'you do have' a low pressure switch - chances are you're out of refrigerant and you will need a serviceperson to (a) fix the leak and (b) re-charge the unit

I own a Zenith ZW5000T8 that is a little over a year old. This morning it starting making a noise and spewing water. I hope there is something I can do to resolve this.

you can check to see if the unit is draining as it sounds as though it is clogged, usually if they make a noise like a fan blade hitting something then it froze(iced) up. If you think this happened unplug unit for about four hours and watch to see if water is continuously draining, if it is then it did freeze, if this is the case you will need to take the housing off and try cleaning the coils, this may help, if this is done and it still freezes then it is low on freon. Hope this helps tim

You are the proud owner of a DUD! Your compressor is not able to come on, as it had frozen up (not in the icy sense of the word, but stuck) & the "buzzing" is the power trying to get the compressor to "juice up." This is a big pain in the rear, but grab the receipt & RETURN it!
