Water is filling up in drain pain

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

Why is my drain pain overflowing?


on most fridges, you should be able to empty drain pan. Remove grill on bottom at the floor, and see if pan will slide out. Good-Day!

Water collecting in the pan underneath the fridge.


it should do this but the water should evaporate from the heat from the condenser and compressor,when the machine goes into defrost a heater comes on and melts all the frost off of the coil,the water drains down into the pan where the water will evaporate,when was the last time you cleaned out the condenser coil?remove the front bottom kick panel and check the coil,if it's filled with dust it has to be cleaned out at least once a year especially if you have a cat or dog,then pull out the machine unplug it or shut off the control and remove the bottom back panel,the easiest way to do this is to vac up as much dust as you can with a shop vac,then set it for blow by putting the hose on the other end of the shop vac and blow the dust out of the coil,you can buy a condenser brush that will remove dust thats stuck inside the coil but the shop vac works great,through the condenser this is how the heat escapes out of the machine,also clean off the fan motor in the rear,also there are plastic water lines that come out of the water valve that could be cracked going to the ice maker and water dispenser or the valve itself could be cracked causing this problem or the pan could have a crack in it,very unusual for the pan to overflow,when you're done cleaning it plug it back in,make sure the fan is running fine and have someone fill a cup of water and check the plastic lines coming from the valve to see if it leaks,pull out the pan and check it for cracks,fill it up at the sink and check it,if everything looks good you can shut off the water valve that goes to the fridge for a few days and keep an eye on the pan,like i say it's unusual for the pan to overflow just from the defrost water,if the water is evaporating with the water shut off then you have a crack in one of the water lines going to the ice maker or dispenser

I have a Intertherm Heat Pump system in my Manufactured Home, Model # E2EB-015HB; Serial # E2E0121006692. Condensation is forming on the Coils and the water fills up the area under the coils, drips down...


There is a drip pan bit the middle is open to allow air flow through the coil and into your ducting. If the drain for the drip pan is clogged it will fill up and overflow onto your furnace and then to the floor.If that is what is happening then clean out the drain tube running down the front of the furnace and it should empty the drip pan and solve your problem.

You also need to have your furnace checked for water damage in the electrical components, if these have gotten wet then you run the risk of a fire. Please consider calling an expert in your area to inspect your furnace and make sure the drain line is clear.

Marvel wine cooler leaks water


All coolers produce water as a result of condensation which occurs when air is cooled. The water appears upon the radiator (technically called the evaporator) inside the cold area of the cooler. When the water drips off of the radiator, it is caught by a pan which may or may not be a removable piece. The pan should lean toward the rear of the cooler and the water should pour into a drain tube. The drain tube should lead down into the compressor area of the cooler and deposit the water into another pain which is outside of the cooler where it should evaporate back into the air. Sometimes "cardboard" fins are used to help the water evaporate. Sometimes a pan with a huge surface area is used to help the water evaporate. Other times the pan is literally on top of the compressor. Make sure the cooler itself is level. Make sure room air is able to move over the pan where the water is supposed to evaporate. Make sure the drain hose is not clogged. Make sure pans are not leaking.

Water is draining into the refrigerator. It fills


Good day,
In the freezer if it has an ice maker, it will have to be removed.
Remove the back panel. Below the cooling coil is a drain pan.
It has a drain hole in it. If it is iced over you will have to defrost it, with the machine off.
Many use a hair dryer, but hot water with a turkey basting tool is
safer.
Once the drain hole is open, you will have to follow thru since the water drains into a cup in the fresh food compartment then thru the back wall into a drain hose on the rear.
Blockage can occur anywhere thru that area.
Service techs usually use compressed air with a hose to blow the lines clear.
If you have no access to something like that you wil have to get creative. Removing all the components and flushing them out is one option.

I have an Amana BRD18V1 or V2, bottom freezer. About every two weeks it leaks water on the floor on the right hand side and i have to defrost the bottom part to get about an inch of ice out. I trust...


I assume you mean water leaking on floor of bottom freezer? There should be a small hole in floor in back to drain defrosted water down to pan under unit. This line might be clogged with food or frozen water. Carefully pour some hot/boiling water down tube to clear. You should see it empty into pan under unit where fan evaporates it.

My amana frige leaks at the bottom, it is a bottom freezer frige, I moved it lately because I am laying laminate floor, any solutions?


In your shuffling of the refrigerator you may have knocked the condensate drain away from the pain near the compressor that evaporates the water back into the air inside your home. Or you may have the refrigerator leaning in a way that the water pools up near the condensate drain pipe beginning in the rear of the freezer and has frozen over and causing the water to drain over the condensate collector pan behind the rear wall of the freezer.
