Where exactly is the condensation??? If anywhere inside the refrigerator like on the walls and packages or excessive frost of freezer packages, you probably have an air leak from one of the doors at the gasket area. Check doors for proper seal and no cuts or breaks in gaskets.

Ice in the drain. Where does the drain pipe empty?


Usually into a pan under the condenser coils on the bottom of the refrigerator. Sounds like the drain is pinched or obstructed, since it should drain without a problem. The water is evaporated from the pan by the heat from the condenser coil.

No reason to disconnect. Just use a snake to unclog the pipe.

Condensation water is leaking out of the bottom of the unit on all sides


Hello, usually a clogged condensate line or cracked condensate pan will cause this. try using a wet/dry if you have one to unclog the drain by attaching the hose to the end of the condensate line, the line will be made of PVC pipe. if this does not help than the condensate pan under the evaporator coil is cracked and will have to be replaced. in some cases if your unit uses a condensate pump that could be the problem aswell if it;s clogged or not pumping.

Drainage problem-water is coming out of the air vent inspite of the drainage pipe


The drain pipe may have come loose or it is clogged. I bet on it being clogged. They are not difficult to unclog, using something like a flexible Zip Tie about 18" - 20" long and small enough to fit into the drain tubing. It will help to **** out the clog.

Hope this helped you solve the problem.

I have a heat pump with the unit under the house. We have noticed our power bill has increased. After crawling under the house I notice the drip pan is full and not draining through the pipe. So I...


Hi, this sounds as though you just have a backed up condensation line that you opened up the drain, and you say it drained fine. As far as the return air duct having water in it, it is connected to the return side of the evaporator coil and it just over flowed into the flex duct causing it to sag. I would take a small sharp knife or a 16 penny nail and just drain the water off. If you have a panel on this unit where the return duct attaches, try and remove it to see how or if the coil has dirt built up on it and check the pan and try and clean it out. I have seen this problem quite often, its not serious but will cause problems if the pan continues to plug off the condensate line and backing up into the duct.With the duct sagging, it will cause the system to work harder to pull air through the home back to the filter and through the evaporator coil to start its journey over again. This is why you have noticed the increase in your bill. This pan needs to be cleaned up so the condensation will continue to drain through its line and not back up into the return. This will solve your problem my friend. Nothing to be worried about, just drain off this water and flush out the pan and you will be fine. Keep me posted on this. I would like to know if you were able to excess the condensate pan OK. Keep me posted.

Water clogged in the outlet pipe


Hello
This is the condensate drain line which drains humid water the a/c coil collects.

To clean you can try compressed air,blow through the pipe.Or take pipe apart and flush it out.

Have the unit off when doing this,also clean the collection pan out of debri.

Whirlpool Air Con Drainage issue


Yes, there should be a place for the condensate to drain outside. It's apparently clogged and the drip pan is overfilling. Look for a tube or an opening outside where the condensate should be exiting. This needs to be unclogged.

Daikin air conditioner leakin water at a fast rate


You should have access to the condensate drain from the outside. You can use compressed air to unclog the unit. If you can, try accessing the drain from the source outward but be careful, you can blow debris everywhere. Make sure you have something to catch it so it doesn't spray everywhere. If you don't have access to compressed air, you can use a small plumbing snake to work you way up the pipe. Hope this answers your question.
