My coleman air conditioner 7300 series is leaking water on the inside
Water in an air conditioner is generally condensation building up on the indoor coil. This happens when the temperature of the coil is below the current dew point of the atmosphere. You have possibly two issues going on.
1) the condensation drip line, which carries the water to the outside is blocked or disconnected (most likely blocked with wet dust build up etc) and can typically be cleared by using an air hose to blow the blockage clear.
2) excessive water can be an indicator that you may have a slow leak in the refrigerant system. reduced pressures will lower the temperature of the coil causing it to condense more water, more frequently. While you might enjoy the seeming better performance of the unit, if there is a leak it will eventually reach a point where the water will freeze(cutting off the air flow so no cooling) and eventually stop working altogether. Have a certified technician check your system for leaks. Remember that most rooftop units use R-22 refrigerant, not R-134a automotive refrigerant. The wrong refrigerant in the system can be very damaging to components and seals, and can cause the unit to function improperly.
