How do I make the water flow down on its own?

My air conditioner doesn't release the water. Instead, I have to suck the water out of the pipe and into a bottole. The machine just keeps the water inside, and I'll have to bend it over in order to get the water out.

Re: How do I make the water flow down on its own?

Hi, I own 3 of these. They were not designed to pump water out. I actually have put them on bricks to increase the height above the tray I collect water in. (so gravity works) They also use water to help with cooling, which is vented out the warm exhaust vent. Actually, it's not the best design, but at least it works for a portable unit.

Baxi banging noise

noise in water pipes is called water hammer and is when the water flow pulsates from an inconsistent flow. Water has mass and when stopped suddenly there is a pressure build up which moves any loose pipes. It can be fixed by putting more securing or mounting saddles on the pipe to hold it steady or you can get a pressure accumulator and it takes up the pressure build up and stops the noise. It is most prevalent when sudden stop taps are used such as ceramic taps or stop cocks and less so when you have to screw down the tap to shut off the water.

Air Handler is leaking water, drain lines are clear. does not leak when unit is on and the back is off the air handler

Most air handlers pull air through the evaporator coil which produces the water and then the blower sucks some of the water off the surface preventing the water from going to the drain pan. A drain trap at the drain pan should be also installed. All manufactures used to ship drip shield panel to install in drain for down flow applications, some do not now unless noted on order that the system is to be in the down flow configuration.

Water flushed from unit inside the room instead of beeing flushed outside throw the out let pipe

Possible that the tilt is more to the front that makes the water drip down. Another reason is that the drain pipe can be clogged with dirt build up and so it flushes back.
Finally if the evaporator is dirty and clogged due to dirt accumulation the water might drip down to the front.
So please check you filter, use high pressure air on to clean and reset the panel.

The water is not draining. I do not know where the drain plug is stopped up. Can u help?

The drain hole will be under the drip pan near the rear of the unit. It can be hard to find sometimes, as the clog will blend in with the drain hole. A pipe cleaner works well to clear the hole. In addition, check the rear downward tilt. The general rule of thumb for rear downward tilt s 1/4" to 1/2". This allows the water to flow toward the rear of the unit to the drain hole. Instead to the front and down your interior wall.

NOTE: Be sure to turn the AC Off and unplug it, before attempting any repairs.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My frigidaire air conditioner is spitting water out the side and the drain hole is clear is there a secondary drain hole?

The tray that holds the condensed water from the evaporator
may be clogged, it may be clogged before the cleanout hole,
where the tray joins the pvc, if this is the case you may have to
power down your ac unit, there is a panel on your heater unit
that you will have to access to expose the evaporator coils and
you will see the tray where the condensation builds up and flows
thru a pvc pipe to go outside. also make sure that the pipe going
outside is at a slope so that the condensation can flow and not
clog the pipe. make sure that water can flow from the tray thru
the cleanout hole. once you correct the problem. you need to reseal all the seams with duct tape or metalic tape, you can purchase at most hardware stores, to make sure their are no ac
cool air leaks other than thru your ac vents. good luck!

I have a pin hole in my copper pipe

first of all shut off the water to the area and see if the flow has ceased, if you still have a trickle of water you will not be able to solder the pipe. Any water flow will make the repair impossible. If you can get the water to slow to a trickle you will need to cut the pipe in half and solder a sleeve in its place at the cut. once the pipe is cut you can take a peice of bread, yes bread, and pack the incoming water side and this will stop the flow long enough for repairs to be made. The bread will break down to minute particles after the soldering is done and shouldn't hurt the system at all. If it is impossible to cut the piping at the area there is a pipe patch that you can purchase at most local hardware stores the wont require the water to be shut off however, this is a temporary repair and may start leaking again in the future. Good Luck on your repairs Hope I have helped you some

Blowing water out the vents.

There is a water pipe from AC to outside,
if a lot of gel inside the pipe, it can make water flow become jam.
Clean it by blow the pipe with a compressor from outside.
Sometimes I did it with my mouth. LOL......
But its worked finally.

the slope is downwards to furnace.The slope isnt for the moisture it is a rise for the flue gas to go outside.The intake is usually connected to the furnace to use outside air for the combustion but it does not have to be.if it isnt an option to take the pipe apart to glue it all up you can seal the water leaks with silicon.anymore questions

Condensation causing water collection

Hi there!

Make sure the unit is level and not tilted forwards.Tilt back if anything.

There should be a drain hole at the back, but it may be clogged, or there may be an obstruction causing the water to build up.

In times of high humidity, water will condense on the cooling coils, and drip off. This is usually carted away by means of a tray flowing to an outside pipe.

One design uses a flinger to catch any water and throw it onto the evaporator coils - thus improving efficiency, but if there is anything touching the coils, like a feather etc, it will flow down that and leak.

Tip it back as the first action, then investigate if it doesn't drain.
