The drain pan is physically inside the indoor unit.

grab a 1/4" nutdriver and open the bottom service panel your coil and drain pan is there, you won't be able to remove the coil properly but you could see if the system is overflowing causing your flooding problem, let me know what you find

The rudd a/c unit is making too much water


Not really. You have alot of moisture in your home and it is removing it is all. Only problem with to much liquid is if it is forming on the lines as condensation and dripping on your ceiling. Make sure your drain pan is clear of any gunk and the drain pipe allows good flow to the outside.

I have a Haier Air Conditioner window unit that is leaking inside the house. What are some possible causes and solutions?


There are basically 2 causes:

1. The rear of the AC unit is not tilted down enough, so that water in the drip pan flows to the drain hole in the rear of the drip pan. The general rule of thumb for rear downward titl is 1/4" to 1/2".

2. The drain hole in the drip pan, near the rear of the unit is clogged. Locating the clogged hole can be a challenge, as the clog will blend in with the drain hole. Patience & persistence are needed in locating it. A pipe cleaner works well to clear the clog from the hole.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

All my other AC Units have had a drain directly to the sewer system...usually connected under a sink. Does my Ruud unit only have the drain to the outside of the house? Usually, when the AC is draining...


If you have a CENTRAL air unit, you should have an overflow to a drain in the furnace area. So I don't understand what you are saying about a connection to the drain under the sink!

Do you have the make and model correctly listed? Because with your question it does not agree what I know about the Ruud Central air that you listed.

Terrible foul ordor coming from air conditioner


Two things may be causing this. A dirty air intake filter and/or the drip pan is not draining as it should.

Remove the front air intake filter and clean it, if necessary.

While the front is Off and the filter is removed, look at the drip pan under the mechanicals. If you see water standing, the unit is not draining as it should. This can be the result of the drain hole near the rear of the drain pan being clogged and/of not enough downward tilt on the rear of the unit. The general rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2" of downward tilt. Finding the drain hole can be a challenge, as the clog can blend in with the drain hole. Be patient and persistent in locating it. A pipe cleaner works well to clear the hole.

If none of the above applies, look for dark stains in the drip pan. These stains could be mold. In which case, add a couple of drops of bleach to the water in the drain pan. It may smell like bleach for a while, until the water dilutes it and drains it and the mold away.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Carrier central air unit in the attic. There is water dripping through the ceiling. There is a problem with the internal drain pan, as the unit drips a LOT of water into the emergency pan. There...


The internal catch pan is very time consuming to replace, especially since it is located in the attic. But before you try that, have you checked to see if the drain line is clogged with algae and that it has the one inch to one foot drop you need for proper drainage? Has you house settled throwing the slope off?

If you live in the South algae growth can clog you drain line. I would disconnect the drain line (have a bucket handy) and see if it is clogged. If you have algai growth then you need to treat with bleach to kill it off. You might also want to run a drain snake through the rest of the line to make sure that it is clear.

Good luck!

I have a york central air closet unit. As the ac comes on water starts to build up in the drip pan but does not drain properly.


Inspect the drain hole in the pan for obstructions also find somthing long, thin and flexable to snak out the drain line. These collect all kinds of debris and can clog.

Does drip pan need to cover entire furnace or just coil. I got both answers for repair men.


When you say drip pan are you refering to a pan located under unit in case drain plugs ? If this is what you are talking about and you have a furnace that is 90% efficient or more which will be vented with pvc, it needs to be under the whole furnace as condensate water also comes from furnace when operating and if this drain plugs you will also have water leaking down from furnace. If it is a 80% furnace which will be vented into a chimney then pan needs to be just under a/c

Water in the drip pan- what is causing it?


I assume you are talking about the indoor unit. One function of the a/c system is to dehumidify the air. Condensation forms on the cooling coil and runs to the drip pan. There should be a drain line on the drip pan that drains the pan outside. These sometimes become clogged causing the water level in the pan to rise. Try some mild drain cleaner to open the line. Hope this helps. Let me know what you find.

Too much water condensation


Check your condensate drain. It could be plugged. Or perhaps you have a crack in the drain pan.
