Wall a/c is leaking water down log wall and puddling on floor.
My 15 year old emerson thru the wall a/c with heat strip is leaking water down into the log wall it is mounted on and puddling up on the floor. Is the pan leaking? Does the pan need to drain out side (currently some small rust holes have been caulked and it doesn't leak outside) or is condensation building up on the coils and leaking down. I have not been able to see it actually leaking. I have a toll free # 800 544 2253.

Re: wall a/c is leaking water down log wall and puddling...
When you sealed the holes outside, you trapped the water inside. The unit is designed to let the water run to the bottom of the pan and then go out the holes outside. Try unplugging one of them and see if that fixes the problem. Hope this helps.

Brenda, Have you tried heat.
It works for mobile phone glass screens that are glued down. Try a hair dryer it may not be hot enough worth a try. You may need a heat gun that they use for stripping paint but it may set the flooring on fire so be very careful.
I looked at another web site and steam was suggested. Maybe you could try using a wall paper removing device. You may be able to hire one from a hardware shop. The ones that steam the wall paper off walls.
You may just need to use boiling water in those drilled holes.
Note Water would only work if the glue used was water soluble.
if the glue is Polyurethane Glue then Acetone or denatured alcohol will dissolve the glue.
you have a blocked drain in the freezer,when the machine goes into defrost the heater comes on and melts the frost off of the evaporator coil,the water melts and goes down the drain hose under the coil and leaks down to a drip pan near the compressor where it evaporates from the heat,your drain is blocked and the water is leaking onto the freezer floor and will drip out onto the floor,i use a steemer to blow out the drain line,shut down the machine or unplug it,melt out all the ice with hair dryer,depending on your model you might have to remove the back inside wall of the freezer to get at drain hole,you need something to push the **** out the drain hose,you can try a turkey baster or air from a compressor or a shop vac set it to blow,when you think it's clear pour a cup of hot water into the drain,if it drains down you're done if not keep hitting it with heat and air to push it through.
Is the water leaking from the door, onto the floor in front. If so, probably a blocked drain outlet or pipe. At the bottom rear of the unit, mine had a drain pipe blocked with a plug of mould (5/6 years old machine), apparently quite common. I detached the pipe and cleaned it out and replaced it.
From inside the freezer, I removed the lower back panel and thawed the ice build up on the drainage tray below the defrost heating element, leading to the pipe outside. The puddles of water that was appearing every defrost cycle have now stopped - permanently I hope. Hope this helps you
Water leakages out the front are usually attributed to poor drainage. IE , the wall unit is not sloping slightly to the rear, or in the case of a split system, the drain hose is not directed down and away from inside. I would suggets checking the filters first. If the filters are blocked, and the cooling is set really low, its possible for the coil to start freezing and thus, leak water out the front. If the filters are clean and the coil is still freezing, you may have a gas shortage . Eventually when the gas runs out, the water leak will stop and the unit wont cool at all. If the system is working properly, on cooling mode, there should be cold air inside and the unit should be blowing hot air outside. If on heating mode, the reverse happens...
ok you got some possibles.1 check cabin filter if signs of water than drain plug on fire wall cloged.causing water to enter by over filling and no were to go.but thru the filter.easy fix.also if you losing anti-freeze than that will point at your heater core leaking from line or core itself.need to test it,turn on heater and check floor with a towel. lay it on floor going up to firewall inside truck.go for a good drive so pressure can build and heater on.while engine hot look at floor towel top part by firewall wet prob heatercore.also check if door is wet to eliminate possbility of door seal leaking.let me know.
I have the same problem with my washer. The problem just began a few weeks ago. It is splashing out the front left corner of the tub and running down the inside of washer and then leaking out the bottom of the frame. It is just enough water to be annoying. The washer is about 6 years old.
The freezer defrosts every day. the puddle is from that. It is supposed to go into a pan at the bottom and evaporate. You need to look at the pan and determine if it has a hole or the drain hose is leaking somewhere.
