You need to get to the drainpipe out side and blow some commpressed air into the drainpipe. Before you do this try to encircle the unit upsairs with some towels as not to allow seapage onto the ceiling below. Also, make sure that the unit upstairs is completely level and or leaning slightly toward the drain port on the rear.If this persists take an old facecloth and tuck it carefully(as not to damage the parts) into the tray, this acts as a evaporative syphon and will help to rid most residual moisture left behind.

I have water on floor under refrigerator.There is no water supply line to this frig.


If the refrigerator is leaking water it's possible that the refrigerator has a clogged or freezing defrost drain. If the defrost drain freezes the defrost water will overflow the drain and drip down to the bottom of the compartment, If enough water accumulates in the bottom it can run out onto the floor.17 May 2013

Why does my home A/C unit result in a constant stream of water coming out of the overflow drain? I've had the same unit for 5 years, and it seems that it drains water in ever-increasing amounts. Als


Sounds like it is freezing up. Kind of hard to say since you did not say whether it is a central heat and air system. My overflow was constantly draining onto my patio from overflow. I crawled up in the attic and followed the pvc pipe where it came in from the outside and closer to the central unit in the attic I drilled a hole in the 90 degree elbow of the pvc and unclogged the pipe which was frozen from running so long. Then I covered the hole with silicone. no more leak coming from overflow

Why is water leaking from a RuuD furnace


Water can leak from any furnace for a couple of different reasons.
If it is in AC mode, the AC evaporator could be freezing due to lack of refrigerant or airflow (check your furnace filter). Or the AC drain could be clogged normally a hose or PVC pipe coming from the evaporator.
If it is in heating mode could be high efficiency furnace not draining properly or leaking humidifier.

I have a Weather King AC/Furnace in the attic that's dripping water into the drain pan. When we purchased our new house it came with this unit and it never dripped ater. Now, the water is dripping towards...


I assume it is dripping water when the AC is running. If you look at the attic unit, there should be a PVC pipe running from the unit - probably an insulated PVC pipe. This pipe probably goes across the attic to the edge of the house and drains outside. The drain pan may also have a drain pipe, but the one on the AC unit is the issue, and is probably plugged. Go outside and see if you can locate the AC drain pipe. See if the ground is wet below the pipe and if water is steadily dripping from the pipe (with AC running). If the pipe and ground are dry, the pipe is plugged. If you have a wet/dry vac, try connecting it to the drain pipe outside to see if you can **** the pluggage out. If you can get it clear, water should start dripping out of the pipe. This same thing happened at our house. I decided to cut the pipe in the attic, and add in a PVC isolation valve, tee, and water hose connection with plug, so I can valve out the AC unit from the pipe, remove hose connection plug, and hook up a water hose and flush the line to outside. Lowe's sells all of the PVC pipe fittings. The water pressure from the hose will always flush out the algae and crud to the outside of the house. I can also remove the plug and pour a cup of bleach down the drain pipe every couple of months to keep algae growth in check. I also cut out the trap (u-leg) from pipe in the attic and purchased a ready made trap a Lowes (the contractor who built our house had made a lousy homemade trap). I purchased a few PVC elbows and installed the trap on the drain pipe outside. By the way, our AC drain pipe comes out of our wall outside and drains near our outside unit. Our secondary drain pan drain pipe comes out outside from an eave on the side of the house. I don't know what you drain line looks like (it may have a port to add bleach, or some cleanout provisions, maybe not). If you choose to modify/improve it, then make a sketch of it, go to Lowe's and get the PVC parts you need + PVC pipe primer and cement. PVC cement dries fast. Remember, the pipe must flow downhill from you AC attic unit. You can use a regular wood saw to cut the pipe. I hope this helps you. You need to keep the drain line clear as algae will continue to grow in it. Pouring bleach in the line every month or two helps. You also need to check maybe once a month that the line is draining properly (check to see if dripping outside). You can get some serious water damage to your ceilings if the water backs up and overflows. I discovered that our drain line was plugged just in time as our drain pan drain line was also partially plugged and drain pan was about to overflow.

Water leaking from bottom ofoasis top loading machine


you may not be leaking out the bottom. Your stand pipe may be clogged. If the stand pipe has a slight clog in it, the stand pipe will over flow, and the water "looks" as if its leaking from the bottom... These pump faster than your old machine, so the pipe will back up faster... hope that helps
