I have seen a couple of posts with similar problems, Intertherm A/C water leaking around the drain pan onto the floor. The drain lines are clear. This has happenned to me several times and created much aggravation. Through trial and error I solved the problem at least temporarily. I re-leveled the unit and took the coils out cleaned them and reinserted. The coils didn't look excessively dirty but they may have been clogged inside. The problem usually happens when it is extremely humid outside, and the unit is located in a humid area of the house(garage). This is possibly due to the excessive amounts of water that the unit is taking out of the air. If anybody knows of another solution, help is appreciated.

Re: water leaking onto floor
At night disconnect power use flash light and mirror check to see if coil is stopped up if unit is up flow coil fan heat kit make sure there is a trap in the drain line or unit will pull air into system most likley cause is dirty coil hope this helps unit could also have dirty fan blades low air flow or starting to freeze the coil due to low freeon charge if down flow supply duct under unit ths is not good due to heat kit on bottom of unit can get wet! hope this helps with your problem

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.
The hole in the bottom of the freezer section all the way in the back is clogged. Use a metal coat hanger or something similar to stick in the hole and try to clear out the clog. The water drains to a pan underneath the fridge, and the heat produced by the compressor should evaporate the water.
replace it it's junk - going to do that this time because this is the fourth year of the same problem on the hottest days this intertherm junk downflow ac unit condensates where it will not and con not be captured by the pan - built by relatives of the guy who designed the titanic -
My 06 was leaking during rain also. It turned out to be the sunroof.
There are two drain tubes in the front of the sunroof that run the
water down the corners to the ground and two drain tubes that drain
water out the back corners. The water would seep around the glass,
which is expected, but both of the tubes on the front of mine were
plugged, and the water would overflow behind the dash and fill my
floorboards. If my H3 was leaning to the left during a storm then the
drivers side would be full of water. If leaning right, then the
passenger side. I had to open sunroof and blow compressed air into the
drain holes to clear them, but be careful, too much air will separate
tubes from sunroof and then you will have to remove the inside paneling
around sunroof to get to tubes and reconnect. You may only have one
side plugged. you can test it by opening sunroof and pour a little
water in the small catch pan in the front of the sunroof and see if it
drains as expected (to the ground under the firewall on left AND right
side). You can see the holes in each corner of catch pan to drain the
water. Plug one with your finger, then the other to find the plugged
side. Good luck!! Hope this helps!!
Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the Freezer is because the water has been leaking into the freezer instead of running into the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again. good luck! P.s Please don't forget to rate my solution thanks! Mike.
THERE IS A DRAIN LINE HEATER ON MOST UNITS now days, if yours is an older one what you need to do is make sure that it's level, and that the drain line is cleared so that the water has a place to go when it thaws during the defrost cycle.
To poshodian: There are a few more posts about this problem. Of course, in order to fix it, you have to remove the panel hiding the condenser coils behind the grill and showing the drain hole.
This is what I just posted on one of them:
I’ve had my Maytag 2454 fridge for 8 years. But only this week did the same problem show up as cathy824 and lew223. When I poked a drink stirrer into the top of the drain hole, it was hard as a rock. Not knowing why condensate from the coils was not draining into the hole and tubing that would empty the water into the pan evaporator on the bottom of the fridge, I took everything apart in the back and messed around with the black rubber elbow at the other end of the drain plug. I shouldn’t have bothered, because what I finally did was to pour boiling, boiling hot water over the drain hole to melt the ice and gunk that was frozen solid in the drain tubing. While I was doing that, I poked the stirrer into the hole, washing the gunk down the drain and into the very dry evaporator pan. Keep pouring hot water into the drain hole until you’re satisfied that water can flow freely into the pan.
That solved the problem of condensate water freezing on the bottom of the freezer and running onto the kitchen floor. Thanks to lew223 for the fix! The fridge should be good for another 8 years now.
