Why does drain pan overflow? How is water in pan suppose to go away before overflowing?


Are you sure it is the drain pan overflowing? If water is appearing on the floor every few days, it may not be getting to the drain pan (evaporator tray), due to a blocked drain channel. The evaporator tray will normally cope with the daily amount of de iced water of a frost free fridge/freezer.

My evap pan keeps overflowing


The pan in the inside of the unit or the one underneath for collecting and evaporating the water?
If it's the one inside take the front bottom panel off and blow out the drain line leading down there. If its the pan underneath and it cant keep up with the water flow check to be sure it has some white cotton looking panels in the pan. They are an accessory called a wicking kit designed to absorb the water and as the air blows over them they help evaporate the water. If those are present and in good shape but its overflowing there you may need to get an electric condensate pan.

I have a 4 ton Ruud HVAC system that is two years old. It is a 13 SEER unit. It is tilted slightly to the front of the evaporator to aid in draining the condensate. Two days ago, my daughter came home...


If the condensate drain is clogged, water will stay in the condensate pan located below the evaporator.
As the water builds it most certinly will be picked up by the blower and travel through the duct work.

I have a Ruud Model # UACC-036JAS. Any idea on


Hi, yes the number you are showing me 036 indicates its a 3 ton unit. For every ton of cooling, you will have 12,000 btu's of cooling. 36 divided by 12=3 ton unit. Its showing me also its a Ruud Handler 2.0 ton which would be a Model# UACC-024JAS? If your mobel number is the one you gave me, UACC-036JAS, this is a 3 ton unit, absolutely no questions. I hope I have been of help to you. I am a licensed air conditioning / Refrigeration /Heating Contractor. Let me know if I have been of help.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
PS If this is a split system with the indoor air handler and condenser outdoors, both coils must be the same tonnage for it to work for you properly. You can't have a 2 ton indoor evaporator coil with a 3 ton condensing unit.

I have a unit in the attic that is installed in the attic horizontally. The condensation leaks out the unit into the overflow pan. I have had the drip pan replaced as it was cracked, the overflow line...


It sounds like to me that the leak is coming from inside the unit(air handler) possibly your evaporator coil is icing up and causing a build up of water just below where the 3/4" P.V.C. drain line connects. Instead of draining out the line, it is finding its way out of the unit else where. I have seen this many times. It sounds like you have done everything that I would have done, but take a look at the bottom of the evaporator pan and I bet that it also is starting to rust out.If the new overflow pan is not leaking, and the condensate line is leak free, it has to be leaking from the evap pan inside the unit.That's why you have the overflow pan in the 1st place to prevent ceiling damage as I am sure you know. I hope I have been of some help to you, please let me know what you find.

Sincerely, Shastalaker7

Air Conditioner (RUUD model: UBHC-14J06NFD) is leaking water from bottom. It is causing a major puddle in Air Intake area.


The condensate drain line/pan is clogged causing the condensation to overflow the pan.

The easy way to fix that is attatch a powerfull wet/dry shop vac to the end of the drain line and such out whatever is causiing the clog. Also take off the panel to the evaporator coil and clean out the pan with the shop vac.

To double check that the clog has been removed, pour a gallon or two of water into the pan and ensure that it is draining properly.

Drain pan overflowing, evaporator not working


Usually the pan sits on the compressor and the heat from the compressor should evaporate it - unless you have abnormally excessive defrost cycles - if you notice your defrost cycle coming on too frequently then your coils are getting frost up quickly (poor door gasket seals, too frequent openings, etc can cause this).

If the pan is not on the compressor it is usually besides it, look for a fan down there - that one should be blowing the compressor's hot air there - if fan is not working this might be your problem.

Locating Ruud Central Air drain pan?? Water has started dripping through the ceiling from the Ruud Central Air Unit...can't find drain pan?


the drain pan is physically inside the indoor unit.

grab a 1/4" nutdriver and open the bottom service panel your coil and drain pan is there, you won't be able to remove the coil properly but you could see if the system is overflowing causing your flooding problem, let me know what you find

Drain pan overflowing, evaporator not working ??


The condensor fan and the heat from the compressor help the evaporation of the condensate. Sears has a complete model number system that is confusing I know. Sears made it that way. Not sure why but look around the cold food door while open and look near bottom on the frame just above the kick plate. The number looks like this, (model No. 253.64802400 for example) Find that number and we can go from there, Thanks, Sea Breeze
