    Leaking water from? or To? AC units (residential) have collecter roughs ro direct the water to a drain pipe leading out of the house. Esiest point to ck for blockage is at the drain point outside. Usually near the conders unit. This drain is often buried or full of weeds since it is a source of water. If the drain is buried or covered up, Look for nice and green weeds or a wet spot in the dirt. The drain troughs can also create blockage with kint and dirt, causing a back up overflow situation. You stated that all the pipes are clear. Under high humidity conditions the amount of draing can be considerable. If your drain pipe in the house is open at its top, then flushing is possible with a hose and nozzle that fits the hole./pipe opening. clearing trough blockage is a virtually impossible to do without removal of the pipr at the unit inside the houe. If pvc pipe,it can be cut to give you a straight shot to the trough . Allowing you to carefully diig out any lint or dirt obstructing the drain. Good luck

I have water leak from under dash pass. side when ac is on

You have a plugged condensate line from the AC evaporator. Crawl down and disconnect the rubber tube attached to the heater box. Water will pour out so have some towels ready. Then blow out the tube or ram pipe cleaner or a speedometer cable down the tube to clean it out.

Ruud achiever 90 plus furnace-water leaks from the drain pipe

This furnace should condense, as long as it goes into the drain. If it is leaking inside the furnace, there may be a seal that needs replacing in either the pvc drain pipe or concentric drain trap needs resealed.

Why is water leaking from a RuuD furnace

Water can leak from any furnace for a couple of different reasons.
If it is in AC mode, the AC evaporator could be freezing due to lack of refrigerant or airflow (check your furnace filter). Or the AC drain could be clogged normally a hose or PVC pipe coming from the evaporator.
If it is in heating mode could be high efficiency furnace not draining properly or leaking humidifier.

Water puddles leaking our of overflow pipe onto floor

sounds like your pressure relief is leaking. Make sure your home water pressure isn't abnormally high (above 80 psi). As long as your water pressure is fine, you should replace the pressure relief.

Ruud UBHC AC System - Provides no Aux Heat

Tried this on my unit today, and observed the same results, but got Aux Heat (with A setting), if the H (blue wire) connected to B terminal, as per instructions for my 6036 Ritetemp. However, in this case, when the set temp is reached, I hear the click, but HVAC still blows aux heat indefinitely.

I also have RUUD UBEA 17J10..., and replaced my old honeywell with 6036, and can't get heat pump working. Both of my units are 14 years old, so I'm thinking to replace them soon.

We have RUUD AC, in second floor , that has a white pvc ope connected to condensate drain. other end of this pipe is inerted into large pipe neanr wall. looks a drain outlet. In the middle of this white...

Hello, W/D here.

There are a couple of things you need to check:
Look at where the drain connects to the A/C unit. There should be another pvc line right next to where the drain connects. This is the clean out/flush line, and is used for adding algeside to the tray internally, which thens go out the drain. Most importantly, there is a 1/8" hole between them, and usually, it's very hard to see. Make sure that this hole is open. If it is plugged, the condensate cannot drain from the unit while the unit is running and will create havoc with your drain system. The 'tee in the drain line is an air vent/vacuum breaker and can be used for a cleanout, but try the little vent hole trick first. Your drain line from the unit should be sloped to your house drain. If you do not have a clean out connection at your unit, then you can clean from the tee to the wall. Put one cup of white vinegar into the tee. It will work as well as bleach, without the corrosiveness of the bleach. If you have a cleanout on the unit, put the vinegar in there, and restart the unit, as the vinegar needs to get flushed by the condensate.
Your tray is designed to catch any leakage, and should drain to the outside. Look for your drain line and clear it. Tray drains generally plug at the ends, and not usually in the middle. You can clean the pan drain with a piece of stiff wire. I like to use electrical solid core wire, #12. Pass it dowh the drain from the pan, and back up the drain from the outside. Chase it with water. Usually the pluggage is either insulation, or dirt dobbers.
Best wishes and regards, W/D
