Question about Amana PTH123B25AJ Heat Pump Air Conditioner
I have a Amana an Pth123A35AC, MFG# P1233719R' serial no. 0012145382. Water is filling up a very small pan area and I can hear water dripping. Is there a drainage pipe somewhere that is stopped up? Any suggestions on how to approach this problem?
These are mostly correct but most have a small drain line that feeds int a drip tray to disperse water over condenser coil and they can sometimes become clogged with algae. remove and clean with simple green

Hello All, this is by design. There's a drain pan in the bottom of your unit. When it's humid outside moisture condenses on the cooling coil, drying out the air inside your space. This moisture hangs in the drain pan and gets "slung" back on to the condenser coil by the fan. This improves cooling efficiency. On extremely hot days the drain pan may overflow (by design) out through the back grille. Hotels use drain kits (DK900D) to redirect this water so it doesn't drip down the exterior wall. The water has to go somewhere and it's much better to send it outdoors than indoors! You can find a manual for the Amana PTAC PTH123E35AXXX right here which describes "normal" operating sounds: http://www.h-mac.com/brands/cooling-brands/amana.html

My suggestion is to NOT pull the plug on the drain that should be covered with a sign that says...do not remove plug. Water is supposed to be kept in the pan. The interior wheel then helps the water keep the condenser cool....Ron
