Question about Carrier Heating & Cooling
I think I have a clogged drain pipe in my a/c. Yesterday we noticed water leaking into the house below the a/c unit and when i removed the filter I did not see any ice or anything. I used a shop vac to **** on the drain pipe outside the house and it did remove lots of dirty water and an orange sludge and this seemed to improve water flow out of the pipe. This morning I tried it again and more dirty water and sludge but improved draining as the a/c ran. I shot the garden hose up the pipe and just kept removing water. Now the drain pipe has not drained any water the last couple times the a/c ran and there is a gurgling noise coming from the drain pipe. I am afraid there is still a decent clog in the pipe somewhere. I know nothing about a/c's and have read a lot about blowing the pipe out but I cannot figure out where to disconnect the drain line in order to temporarily pipe it into a bucket in order to blow it from the other side with a hose. Trying not to call a professional, can anyone help?

It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occurs. Removing and Cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there is gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.
