Water Leaking around Ceiling Vent in Kitchen

Just yesterday, water started leaking from the ceiling around our air conditioner vent. The vent is directly under our upstairs bathroom. However, it doesn't seem to leak anymore when we use the shower, sink or flush the toilet. We have no loss of water pressure anywhere. It is not a very fast leak. Don't want to spend an arm and a leg on a plumbing call if we could possibly figure out/fix this ourselves.

My air conditioner's bucket is overflowing with water and leaking all through the ceiling onto our floor, ruining the paint on the walls. Any solutions?


I assume you have a unit in the attic as described condensate leaking from ceiling and down the walls etc.
What is not normal is a bucket to contain the condensate, there should be 2 lines a primary from the evap coil and a secondary preferably from a secondary drain pan resting underneath your unit. A bucket will never work in this capacity.

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.

Water is leaking from my downstairs air conditioning vent


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.

Water leaking from A/C


ok this unit should have a silicone seal around the pan so water does not collect under it if old silicone is worn away scrape old silicone away and redo new silicone around unit so it sits properly make sure all the water is gone before sealing because you run the risk of mold build up under it; let it dry or help it dry thats up to you

but would like little more info on what this is on
