My first reaction is that it sounds like a plugged or partially plugged drain line. Clear the drain line by either blowing through it backwards (carefully) or using compressed air. In a worse case the line could be kinked or rotted. Make sure the drain can run freely into its destination. Sometimes the line will need to be disassembled to clean it.

Another cause of this can be static pressure imbalance on the fan...the drain trap should be equal to or just less than in height of the total static pressure of the fan in inches of water column so the water (condensate) is not held back by the fan pressure. Make sure your filter is clean, especially if you have pets.

My cabin air filter was wet and frozen, I had no air flow to defrost or heater what would cause the water?


When you run the defroster and in some models the heater, the air conditioner compressor comes on to take the moisture out of the air. When this happens the evaporator collects the moisture in the condensation pan and if there is debris blocking the drain, you have water build up. There could have been ice in the condensation pan or drain already or you have water coming in through the intake area that is just under the bottom of the windshield.

Water leaking in the inside of home.


Air conditioners take the moisture out of the air. When the air passes through the coils on the evaporator, they are cold. This causes the air to condense and water to form on the coils. It then drips off into a pan. When the pan is full if it is not drained, you will have an overflow and things get wet. How much water the unit collects depends on how much humidity is in the air, how much air you are moving through the coils and the temp of the coils.

I have an kenmore elite A100E portable air conditioner. I have two questions; 1- It drains water from the back pipe outlet which makes my floor wet. How to collect this drained water to stop it damaging...


Yes is does work as a dehumidifier, when it's in dehumidifier mode. Using just the AC mode, will slow up the collect ion of water some. However, the tank will still need to be drained occasionally. There are 2 ways to train the tank.

1. In to a low sided pan or bowl, capable of holding at least 1 quart of water.

2. Roll the unit to a floor drain or outside to drain the bucket.

Hope this helps and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Water leaks out of the bottom of the humidifier and the bucket does not fill up. The water just leaks out.


Based upon my experience with the same problem on my Kenmore 54701 last summer: The condensate water collects in a plastic pan below the coils. This pan has a single drain hole where the water flows down into the bucket. When I suddenly found water puddling on the floor instead of in the bucket, I opened up the unit, and I found that the collection pan's drain hole had become blocked by "bioslime". I cleaned out the goo from the drain hole, and the problem was solved.

How do you remove the water collection pan


There is very little collected and it usually evaporates by the warm air movinf in that area .If there is alot of water there may be a problem. I've never needed to get rid of the waterin the 40 yrs in California and have never hsd to contend with overflowing.Keep the area under the fridge free of cobwebs and the dirt they trap using a vacuum cleaner about once a year. The drippings with drippings will evaporate quiker with free air movement.

GE TFX20JR side by side/water leaks out freezer during defrost


Yes, you are correct, that is a drain. Use a turkey baster with hot (not boiling) water to flush out the drain tube until water will flow out into the drain pan under the refrig. (where the air blown over it will cause it to evaporate)

Sunbeam air conditioner


It is normal for water to collect in the lower base of an air conditioner. See the section entitled: "There is water sloshing around inside." If water leaks out the front it is usually because the unit is tilted forward in the window frame. All air conditioners should be installed so they tilt slightly back to allow for proper removal of the condensation collected.

There is water sloshing around inside All window air conditioners will remove moisture from the air if there is any. Most window air conditioners collect this moisture in the bottom pan of the air conditioner and attempt to evaporate the moisture. The evaporation process works as follows: First, the water drips down off of the cold evaporator coils on the front of the unit. Then the water collects in the bottom of the air conditioner base, the "pan." If the air conditioner is installed properly it will be tilted slightly back.

The water then collects near the back of the unit. On some units, the fan blade used to cool the rear condensing coils will have a rim on the outside of the fins of the blade. This rim, or "slinger," will come close to touching the inside of the air conditioner pan when the fan is spinning. As the water collects in the pan and reaches the depth necessary for the fan ring to touch it, the ring will lift some of the water up and the fan will blow it at the condensing coils. Because the coils are warm, they will evaporate the moisture to the outside.

While this is happening it is normal to hear water splashing and sloshing around. As long as there is no water leaking inside the room that is being cooled there is no cause for concern.

Never drill into the bottom of and air conditioning unit to "let the water out."

if this helps please give me a fix ya
