Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Would a home a/c stop dripping condensation after a tune-up WAY, WAY overdue?

It's a Trane XE80 that used to drain out on the flowerbeds, last week, dude came & did a maintenance check-clean'd it all up...I noticed it's not dripping from the condensation pipe like it did since my husband broke it.

It should drip. That's the humidity from your house. Call them out again to have them verify the drain pipe is clear. Tell them you think they did something wrong. If it doesn't drain right, it will pool inside the unit and cause the internal AC panels to rust if the drain pan (below the condenser) overflows. Or worse, it might be a source for mold to grow inside the system. The later being unlikely, but not impossible.

SOURCE: My Daewoo DSB 091L unit has started to drip

Make sure that the flexible pipe is securely connected to the drainpan, it can come adrift and cause leaking. The way to check this is to make sure everything is dried out completely. Then open the front grill and carefully pour water so that it goes only into the drip pan. Pour slowly so that you do not overflow the pan. If water is coming out on the outside and you have no leaks on the inside, then you can rule out the perished or disconnected drainpipe theory. In this case your unit may be short of refrigerant causing excessive run time and a freeze up of the evaporator.

SOURCE: Dripping water from the pvc drain pipes of 2nd story eaves.

yes, that is your emergency drain pipe. You need to have the a/c drained cleaned out. It is probably jammed up with algea. A professional should be called to blow it out. or get ahold of your Mr. Fixit buddy. If you leave it like this your drain pan will eventually rust out and cause major interior damage to your home.

SOURCE: i replaced the Trane condenser cool my house down

You have the contactor wired improperly. You need to go to the low voltage wires coming from the thermostat. The wire combination you gave sounds like you are looking at the high voltage coming off of the capacitor. If it wont shut off you most likely have the red and yellow wires crossed.

SOURCE: Condensation water is not draining properly on

Yes,remove the ac unit from the window,and clean it out with a water hose out side,remove all debris from inside the unit,and tilt water out of unit.Make sure there is nothing in the way of the drain,and when the unit is put back in the window,make sure it has a very good tilt outward so the water will for sure flow outside,not in.If this was helpful,please rate,thank you.

Water is dripping from the top into the fridge in the back is frozen up and condensation is forming at the top of the fridge ceiling...dripping down.


The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the back of the freezer.

My trane XE80 will only blow cold air. The fan


It sounds like the problem is a tripped limit switch. Look in the burner compartment and on the blower assembly for a switch that looks like the one below. It will be about the same size round as a quarter. Press the red button on any of the switches you find, then re-try furnace.

Water leaking from refrigerator

If you just want to clean it you may can access it from the rear behind the cardboard backing. If it's overflowing your water filter may be stopped up or you may have had an excessive amount of frost one time.

Frige has water dripping in from freezer


Hi, Check the door seal.

Ice is often caused by warm, moist air getting into the freezer and condensating, then freezing.
