Furnace has water under it, why? Its a Dayton gas furnace.


There are several questions that need to be answered about what type of system you have, but i found this posting that may help:
As your gas furnace runs, is there water leaking at the base? Is the furnace's air filter wet, too?There are a few things that could be happening here. But if you have a high-efficiency furnace, here's the most common cause: a condensation leak.
We'll explain why a furnace creates condensation, and what's causing it to leak out of your furnace.
Note: You'll know if you have a high-efficiency furnace if:
  • The yellow energy guide tag says your furnace's efficiency is 90% or higher AFUE.
  • The vent/flue pipe is white PVC as opposed to metal.
Why a high-efficiency furnace creates condensation
How in the heck does a high efficiency furnace create condensation/water anyway?
It's all about how the furnace extracts heat from combustion gases.
A lower-efficiency furnace extracts some heat from combustion gases and then quickly vents them out the flue pipe.
But a high-efficiency furnace, to extract more heat, has 2 heat exchangers. These allow the furnace to extract heat from the gases for a longer period of time. This causes the combustion gases to cool and then condense.
That condensation then exits out your home through a drain. But if that water is pooling around the furnace, there's a problem preventing it from draining properly.
Causes of a condensation leak around a high-efficiency furnace
  • Clogged condensation tubing
  • Clogged condensation drain
  • Breaks in the condensation line
  • Issues with the condensate pump (if you have one)
You'll need a furnace technician to diagnose which of these is the issue and then fix it.
Other causes of leaking water around a furnace
If you have a conventional, standard-efficiency furnace...then its flue pipe may be incorrectly sized.
If you have a whole-house humidifier connected to the furnace...there may be an issue which is causing the humidifier to leak into your furnace. Your humidifier should be getting annual maintenance from a professional to prevent this.

2005 Chrysler Town and Country Coolant Leak After running Air Conditioning?


You do not say if you are losing coolant or not , if not every thing is ok as its condensation from the air con, If it has coolant loss it could be over heating, make sure the extra fan comes on with the air con.

Hi, I have an air conditioner Frigidaire which is leaking in the front. The unit is in a window, in a 4th Floor and I don't have access to the back, how can I unclog the unit??. I am desperate!!!!


if it's just condensation leaking out the front of the unit it could be that the unit is not level in the window. If it's tilted too far into the room it will leak condensation into the room. Try to tilt it back just a hair so that the condensation leaks out the back of the unit.

Water is leaking from a seam on my muffler 98 jeep


condensation is a common occurance in all vehicle exhausts. Your muffler is leaking in the seam which indicates that it may need replacement. Condensation will then be seen leaking form the tailpipe only. Generally, the heat of a warm car dries up this condensation. Short runs do not allow the car to fully warm up. Excessive short runs causes abnormal condensation buildup. Water inside your muffler will eventually rust it and thios is most likely why you see a leak in the seam in the first place.

A/C coolant from condenser


First of all, refridgerant is a gas. All AC systems leak water due to the condensation from the ice cold pipes meeting the hot ambient temps. Look around at most other cars in parking lots, anyone using they're ac will have a puddle. Get other opinions before you act.

Water is draining into the house?.where is the drain?


Hello, the unit must be tilted back in the window to prevent the condensate from leaking inside. Some units will have a drain plug on the bottum, while others use the condenser fan to scoop up the condensate and splash the condenser to keep it cooler and evaporate the condensate.

Our A/C unit when running, the drain water isn now backing up and leaking over the side in our basement. we've never had this problem before.


Hello, this usually indicates a clogged condensate line or cracked condensate pan. Try using a wet/dry by attaching one end of it to the otlet of the comdensate line, the suction pressure should dislodge the clog. If the line appears clean the the pan is cracked and will require a technician to come out and fix it.

New inverter reverse cycle leaking water out the front of the unit. Its 44 degress outside, could this be the problem?


Is it leaking out of the evaporator(inside unit) or condenser?

If it is leaking from the outside unit on defrost then it is normal, if it is leaking from the inside unit then you have a blocked condensate drain tube!

These units defrost from time to time and is normal, it is actually melting the ice that can form on the condenser when it is cold enough outside, it has to initiate a defrost cycle so that air can flow through the condenser again after the cycle is complete.

Then it will return to normal heat pump mode, this is assuming that you have a heat pump.

What is the white part that holds water tubing on back of Amana refrigerator? It is leaking water around the tubing


hi,
tubing at the back refrigerator is the condenser, function of this is heat rejection that absorb from your evaporator inside your refrigerator,the white part of holding tube condenser is tube holder mounted by screw to hold condnser tubing has no relate inr efrigetration cycle.the screw use on tube holder was directly pin at the back side of eveporator where cooling effect emerge some ice melted or defrosted form water pass through on screw tube holder,you can fix loosen screw have some sealant pathced to hole where srcew located after a minute of drying time screw it again so that water leak may not come out to that tube holder through your condenser,
well,if that leak does not harm or not make any trouble passing through your condenser its still good condenser need to be cooled so that refrigerant inside tube can flow on liguid state effeciently.on large refrigeration such as ice plant
condenser was designed to have a water shower on tube called evaporative system.it make coole the condenser tube.
this ideas can give you clear explanation why water leaking on tube condenser.have anice day rate me,thanks a lot
