Water is leaking from my downstairs air conditioning vent

I cant figure out what is going on, for the last two days I have seen a puddle of water underneath my downstairs kitchen air vent. We took off the vent plate and the dry wall around the perimeter is wet. there is no moisture in the duct. Could this be my air conditioning leaking or could this be another leak. We have a bathroom above this area but when we flushed the toilet and turned on the shower, no leaking occured. We were running the a/c and taking a shower up in that bathroom before we noticed the puddle. i am afraid to run the a/c for fear there might be ore leaking water.

If the humidity is up in the house and you are running your ac and the return duct is not insulated on the inside or outside the duct will sweat

I have no answers. I'm googling this right now because there is water dripping out of my upstairs ac vent. The ac is not frozen. We happened to be running our hose at the same time.

I seriously doubt it's the AC. It may be the draing in the upstairs shower, If it's a water line it is a very small leak and is probably puddling in you ceiling. if not nbeing absorbed. Best thing is contact your homeowners insurance because you are going to not only have a plumber to deal with , but a mols issue as well. Sorry, good luck.

    contact your insurance co. They will have a contractor HANLldeTHE WATER DAMAGE AND WHILE THE CEIlING IS REPLACED, THE LEAK CAN BE LOCATED. tHE MOLD ISSUE CAN BE JUST AS EXPENSIVE and extensive as the leak whether its the a/c or not. good luck.

Ford e150 is leaking somewhere on driver side when it rains?


If it ain't the windows.
It is probably an air vent seal.
Does it leak only when it is being driven or also when it is parked?
Check in front of the windshield - clean out the vents etc... check the gaskets going into the cabin around the wire harness inlets etc.
If you can't find a hole - it might just be condensation from the air conditioner hose.

Why does the air conditioner leak water from behind the unit. My air conditioner is placed in a wall and the back end of the conditioning unit sticks out inside the garage. I have ventilation by...


It is normal for an air conditioner to leak water out the back. This water is actually the humidity being taken out of your house. Being vented out in to the garage is always an issue with condensate water. I have seen some people take a funnel and run a hose outside the garage somewhere. Keep the vent closed. It will be harder to cool the house with the vent open because it lets outside air in to the house.

Sharp CV-P10NC AC unit it has a puddle of water coming down.


earlier models had a pan you had to empty .. your model has a small pump that is supposed to pump the water out the hot air vent (that goes thru the window} .. since its leaking it is likely that the pump inlet is clogged ... you might have to remove a panel to get at that ... it will be near the bottom of the unit (near the drainage nozzle) ... also check the hose that goes out thru the outside vent .. make sure its not cracked, clogged or smashed ... temporarily you can use the drain nozzle to drain off the water to a lower area (it cant drain up without the pump) ...

LG Front Load Washer


I've had trouble with my LG WM016CW front load washer leaking from the start. After many service calls, a Sears tech finally figured out that the water was running out the air vent on the back of the washer(leaks out even when no soap is added, so it's not a soap issue). The Sears tech called LG and it turns out that there should be mushroom valve(not on the original parts list) installed between the tub and air vent hose to prevent water from leaking through the air vent. That seems logical, so why wasn't the valve installed to begin with? LG is obviously aware of the problem, so why haven't they had the courtesy to inform their authorized techs? No, instead they wait for some poor tech to call them, then give out a part number that has proven to be dfficult or maybe even impossible to get(been 2 weeks and still no part). I believe LG is trying to hide the fact that the valve was left out of the original washer design and they do not want to go to the expense of correcting their mistake. Wish I could just return the washer, who wants one that leaks?

No air flow upstairs


Cold air is denser than hot air, so is harder to move. All vents have some mechanism to regulate flow, so close all of the downstairs vents. Check to see if your furnace fan motor has more than one speed, & set it on maximum. Keeping the fan on all the time will help as well. If all else fails, you may need a more powerful fan motor.
