Amana furnace model amv9 has water dripping from the exhaust outlet. the exhaust doesnt seem to be clogged and the overflow for water to run into doesnt seem to be clogged. water is making its way into the exhaust blower which is also making its way in to the combustion chamber, causing water to drip and pool where the filter slides into its channel. i have been using my shop vac to suc out as much water as possible but how can i prevent this from continuing to happen? nothing has changed in the 5 years its been installed.

You did not say if you have a dehumidifier or air conditioner installed on this unit. If those are not installed on it then the only place moisture could be coming from is down the exhaust connection for the flue. If one or both of those items are installed then the issue is the drain trays might have debris built up that you cannot see.

    There is an AC unit connected to this furnace (its not in use right now cause its still winter here in ontario!) And yes i did say i believe the water is coming from the exhaust connection from the flue, but why and how do i prevent this from occuring again?

    Flue connections have to be double or triple walled depending on the code for your area, If you are having issues with condensation, follow the exhaust flue up to where it joins the verticle run and check for corrosion in the inner tubes. My thought is the wall is compromised and allowing condensation to form when it cools from being run and the condensation is following the vent back down to the furnace.

I have a Utica gas furnace and the overflow pipe is dripping continuously. What could be the problem?


If your Utica is a high efficiency 90+ condensing furnace, I suspect not too much is wrong. A condensing furnace removes so much latent heat from the burned fuel that it condenses the moisture out of the flu-gases. The result is a very low flu temperature, AND water.

The water must be flowing correctly down the proper drain though, or you could suffer damage to the furnace itself. If there is an 'overflow' pipe and it is running over though, the drain downstream must have an obstruction. Clean the drain out and the overflow situation should go away.

Bloomfield coffee maker overflows, even with plain filter


The outlet of the cone filter holder is clogged. Normally its just a hole you can clean out but some units have a valve that is pushed up/open by your coffee pot. That valve may be clogged or if you changed the coffee pot it may not be opening due to the different pot. Clean valve or just remove it so the coffee will run into coffee pot.

I have a keeprite furnace that is acting up the furnace starts up and runs some times for minutes and sometimes seconds the pressure switch is cutting in and out but it doesn't seem to have a steady flow...


TEMPORARILY disconnect exhaust vent and see if it still does it. If it runs for a few minutes like that, normally your problem is something in your vent pipe. If plastic vent pipe, even a puddle of water, if the pipe is not sloped correctly. Water in the vent pipe has to run downhill all the way to the furnace. If metal vent, probably a clog somewhere.

I have a Intertherm Heat Pump system in my Manufactured Home, Model # E2EB-015HB; Serial # E2E0121006692. Condensation is forming on the Coils and the water fills up the area under the coils, drips down...


There is a drip pan bit the middle is open to allow air flow through the coil and into your ducting. If the drain for the drip pan is clogged it will fill up and overflow onto your furnace and then to the floor.If that is what is happening then clean out the drain tube running down the front of the furnace and it should empty the drip pan and solve your problem.

You also need to have your furnace checked for water damage in the electrical components, if these have gotten wet then you run the risk of a fire. Please consider calling an expert in your area to inspect your furnace and make sure the drain line is clear.

I have a water leak that seems to be coming from my furnace unit. No water lines above unit. Seeing water dripping down inside of blower area along unit's wall. What may be causing the water?


condensate drain is clogged. This then overflows and causes the water to run down inside the unit. Just clear out the drain. Very common problem. I've heard of companies charging up to $300 for a 5 minute job that anyone can do.

Excessive water dripping from Central A/C drian line


sounds like the overflow drain is picking up the water that means the main drain is clogged.you need to find the main drain pipe if lookin at the air handler in attic there should be 2 drains from unit one higher than other follow it and blow out drain they put the other overflow drain out the eve so if it stars leaking someone notices it and it doesnt damage cieling but it sound like it needs imediate attention befor it does go to the overflow pan and damage your cieling. i hope this helps and good luck

We are look at purchasing a 95% Amana AMV9 furnace. What is the pro and cons on this unit furnace. Thanks for your help. Judy


the best furnace you can buy is a two-stage furnace with a variable speed blower, the most effecient furnace you can buy is the 95% one. the most important thing is the technician installing it. there is a very advanced setup configuration that needs to be followed depending on your outside unit, your ductwork, and the living environment. find a NATE certified dealer. also, look for a Lennox Premier Dealer, and an American Standard Customer Care dealer. you can find them by going to Lennox.com and AmericanStandardAir.com

Fridge water "overflow" ?


It is supposed to drain to a plastic tray under the fridge. There is usually not a lot of water that drips down there... and the water usually will evaporate before overflowing.
If the water is draining on the inside of the fridge, then the drain tube on the rear of the fridge might be clogged. You should be able to remove the tube fairly easily, and then see if you can blow air into it to see if its clogged. Sometimes it just gets clogged with dirt and dust. If the tube is clogged, and you cannot blow air through it, then see if you can get a small somewhat flexible wire and push it through the tube.
Hopefully it will make it all the way to the other side.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
Mac =)
