Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

My Intertherm model 018 air conditioner leaks from the a-coil the pan is not clogged or overflowing. I have had the motor replaced twice as the drip from the a-coil has shorted out the motor both times. If I remove the panel cover the leaking stops and all of the water dries up from around the fan and wires but the air conditioner doesn't cool properly with this cover removed.

This is most likely a air flow problem (not enough static pressure- duct work issues)

Check the drain pipe and the lining. It might have not been inserted and glued to the outlet from the unit.

Water leaking in the inside of home.


Air conditioners take the moisture out of the air. When the air passes through the coils on the evaporator, they are cold. This causes the air to condense and water to form on the coils. It then drips off into a pan. When the pan is full if it is not drained, you will have an overflow and things get wet. How much water the unit collects depends on how much humidity is in the air, how much air you are moving through the coils and the temp of the coils.

BTU is leaking water from the inside.


Take the cover off the inside unit and look for the drip pan under the evaporator coil. It should have either one drain in the middle of the pan or a series of smaller drains along the back of the pan. The drain(s) is probably clogged up and causing the pan to overflow into your home. Also check the drain line on the outside wall where the refrigerant lines come through the wall for a blockage.

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.

Water droping


Your drain pan is not draining. Use a wet vac to **** the drain line from the outside. This will pull out the blockage and you're back in business. Do not blow compressed air into the drain. This pushes the blockage back up into the drain pan.

It is running well but leaking water...Is there suppose to be a drain?


The leaking water is the condensate from the evaporator coil produced as the unit dehumidifies the air.

The condensate should drip into a pan which has a drain which can be directed to the desired location (may need to add a drain hose to the drip pan).

The drain may be just clogged -- hope this helps you investigate the situation.
