Question about Fujitsu 18C1 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Condensate overflows frequently.

I don't know how to access to clean out the drain. I just blow it out from the drain tube, but that doesn't last. I took the cover off, but that didn't provide the access to clean it out. The manual I have doesn't help.

Your drain tube is usally under the coila and is sort of hard to access it anyway. There are two things you need to do 1st take a wet/dry vac and hold the hose on the drain tube which will **** out any type of blockage there is (mostly algae) 2nd you need to get some treatment tabs from an a/c supply shop that all you do is place one of these tablets in the drain pan and it will prevent the buildup of algae therefore preventing your clogging issue. Good Luck

My portable windchaser airconditioner pacr9 sounds like theres some water in the top area and is blowing out some water from the front vent ? any reason why ?

This usually happens when the unit is dirty. The filter provided is pretty worthless and dirt and dust build up inside the unit badly. This causes the unit to operate inefficiently. Condensate builds up on the evaporator and freezes. When it defrosts water drains through the unit to the bottom, whats left is a muddy sludge and a clogged evaporator. The condinsate will then overflow into the fan area. Normally the condensate will be exhausted through the warm air vent in the back of the unit.

To fix this, you need to unplug the unit, then remove the entire back cover. Not just the small cover on the upper portion. Once removed you can then have access to the entire evaporater and condenser. Clean these thoroughly with a vacuum and toothbrush if necessary, Let the unit defrost if the evap was clogged with ice. Drain the unit thoroughly with the tube at the bottom of unit. I lay a thick towel on the floor and let it drain into the towel. Clean the fresh air intake area on the upper rear thoroughly, I used windex, then flushed with water, which ten drained to the bottom of the unit, and out onto my towel. Reassemble and run in fan mode for an hour, allowing the condensate that overflowed into the fan area to evaporate. You should be all set.

This maintenance procedure should be performed yearly or as necessary on these units.

Clean the drain holes ?

Get a vacuum cleaner and **** any dirt from the end of the drain hose. If you can access under the evaporator from the side, clean the base tray as well.

Unit in basement leaking around bottom

The drain line coming from the internal drain pan to the pump is clogged, causing overflow of the internal pan. That means the water never reaches the pump, and is simply overflowing into the bottom of the unit/duct.

The drain line and pan need to be cleaned and cleared.

A shop vac is a wonderful tool for such a job.

Your air conditioner evaporator condensate drain is blocked.
The condensate draintube should carry this water out through the floorpan to the ground.
Look for a kinked or blocked drain tube from under the A/C evap housing.

Condensate pump failure

Condensate pumps can clog up with this weird whitish/grey gooey slimy mold. Clean everything out. I had to blow compressed air thru my outside dump tube to clear it up completely.
They make stuff that you can put in the pump tank which will stop/remove that mold.
