Condenser unitleaking into my furnace 1 burner now out

It sounds like the condensation pan's drain hose is clogged. Which causes the pan to overflow into the burner compartment. Locating the drain hose or plastic pipe and tracing it back up to the condensation pan will allow you to find the end and blow it out. Be sure the furnace is OFF and cool before attempting this.

There is water leaking out from the bottom of my furnace. It leaks whenever the ac is running.

Hello, sounds like a clogged condensate line or a faulty condensate pump if the unit has one. Cleaning the drain line should fix the problem.

Why is it wet underneath /

Condensate. All air conditioners produce condensate in the process of removing the heat from the air. Normally the condensate will drain to the out of doors (in a window AC installation) or to a pan or tray which may be connected to a drain hose in the case of the style of AC in your picture.

The physics of the question is hot air can hold more moisture than cold air can. Cold (cooler) air is less humid as a result of this physical law. The water has to go somewhere and gravity dictates that somewhere is down.

Your job is to find the tray or pan and empty it when it gets full or connect a drain hose to it if appropriate. Of course, you will have to run that drain it to somewhere that it can be pumped or drain away.

Thanks for your question.

Hi, I have an Amana 90 Air Command Gas Furnace that is dripping water. The unit has a Becket Corp condensate removal pump on the side that is working properly (I tested this by pouring water into one of...

The source of your problem may be the drain pan that captures the condensation and then drains it into the condensate pump hose.

Yes you'll have to remove the side panel to access the pan. The pan drain may be clogged with lint and mold. It's not difficult to clean once you access it. If you see mold, you may want to place a teaspoon of bleach in the drain pan once it has been cleaned. Future condensation water will dilute it and move it around.

There is a drip pan under the evaporator coil. This pan is to catch the condensation dripping off the coil. Then the water goes down a drain hose to a re-evap pan. That all being said. What's the problem you have? The first thing I look for is to make sure the hose is still connected to the drip pan. The next and most ofter is the problem is a clog in the drain hose or where the hose connects to the drain pan. We use compressed gas to blow out the clogs.
I would also check the pan for cracks or holes. This should take care of your problem. Also make sure the door and gasket is sealing to keep air and moisture from getting in and making the condensation problem worse.
I hope this helps you. Please leave feedback.
Thank you.

I have an Amana AP148D, can I run it without an external drain hose? It says self evaporating, what does this mean?

Self evaporating simply means there is a drain pan with a heater device installed that will evaporate and condensate that drains from the unit into the pan.

You do not need the external drain pan unless the unit makes more water than the drain pan and drain pan heater can handle.

the condensate drain hose is blocked.
remove the plastic rear cover in the freezer; locate the drain opening;
it's about 1/2 inch in diameter; it drains into a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. using a funnel and, a small pan, pour hot water through the blocked hose until water flows into the drain pan again.
remove the condensate pan pour the water out and, reinstall the pan.

Water overflowing from filter duck

It sounds like your condensation pan or your condensation hose is pluged up. I would first check the hose, there should be a hose coming off the unit and going to a floor drain. Pull the hose off and make sure it is clear of foreign matter (don't blow on it with your mouth, take it outside and use a garden hose or air compressor to blow it out). If there is nothing plugging that up then you may need to clean out your condensation pan which is located inside the unit right behind where you took the hose off. You may have to take some screws out to get to it once you you get to it make sure it is all cleared out. Also check and make sure your filter is cleaned and the coil is clean. The coil is right above the condensation pan. This should take care of the problem. ;-)

Water puddling under the frigerator

I had the same problem. The problem was the drain tube from inside the freezer to the drain pan was partially plugged so ice was building up inside, then when the freezer went thru its defrost cycle large amounts of ice were melting. I fixed it by removing valve in the end of the drain hose, all ice inside freezer and ice in drain hose (pour hot tap water thru it).
Hopefully this helps.
