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

How do i remove a drip pan from a kenmore refrigerator


The drip pan collects water when the freezer goes into a defrost cycle. Most times there is very little water and the water evaporates quickly. When there is a problem with the freezer or the water does not evaporate between defrost cycles, the drip pan fills with water. If the front bottom of your refrigerator has a grille, you access the drip pan from the front. If there is no grille, access the drip pan from the rear.

Instructions
Rear Access

1 Unplug the refrigerator from the wall outlet. Pull the refrigerator away from the wall so that you can access the rear of the refrigerator.

2 Look under the refrigerator with a flashlight and locate the drip pan. Often when people install refrigerators they neglect to pull the packing from around the drip pan. The drip pan may have tape or styrofoam around it.


3 Remove any packing material away from the drip pan and pull the drip pan out from under the refrigerator.

Front Access

4 Pull the grille at the bottom of the refrigerator below the refrigerator door with your fingers. The grille secures to the refrigerator with plastic clips.

5 Remove any debris from the access area and throw the debris in the trash. The coils and fan under the refrigerator attract dust and dirt. Clean out the area with a lint brush if you have one.

6 Pull the drip pan out from under the refrigerator.

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.

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.

Drip pan over filling


The fan which cools the condensor coils and compressor usually evaporates the defrost water in the drip pan . Adding a water filter should have no no affect on the amount of water in the pan .

Do I need to empty the water from my drip pan


the pan is there to catch condensation from the compressor during the refridgeration cycle. the water build up to me indicates one of two things. Either the refrigerant level is low and it is freezing up then thawing, or if you have ice or water dispencer it could have a leak in the line. the only thing other than that is a leak in the magnetic door seal or other insulation causing condensation. hope this helps

Side by side dripping


There are several reasons why the dispener would dip. Do you have a filter on the unit and have recently replaced it. Then run a large pitcher or water through the dispenser to make sure all the air is out of the line. Anorther thing that could be happening it the water valve is not sealing properly and causing the dispenser to drip, In which case the valve should be replaced. One other odd problem is if the water tank somehow is not even and you have a little air bubble in it. Just some thinks for you to look for, hope one solves it.
