Question about Fujitsu 36CS Air Conditioner

1 Answer

The models really AST30RSG-W.

There is a lot of water dripping from the inside unit. I have cleared the pipe leading from the unit to the sink as this has been blocked in the past. I have cleaned as much dust as possible from around the system removing all panels. I imagine there would be a drip tray under the heat exchanger to collect the condensation. Is there a seal here that could need replacing or could it be something else completely?

Re: The models really AST30RSG-W.

I found two models that were very similar to your unit. They have information that may help you on your leak. Look at the installation manual and look at the drain hose part of the installation. a lot of info there. Hope this helps.

Condensate not draining

In this case check your drain pipe is ok, it is not damaged or check the pipe should be in slant position so that water can flow out easily.

Condensation water does not leave pan when it gets full you can hear the water being picked up and thrown around in the unit. There is no water flowing either inside or outside unit.

What you hear is an indication that the drain hole in the drip pan is clogged. Check the outside of the bottom of the drip pan. The hole may be hard to locate, as the clog can blend in with the drain hole. It may take patience & persistence to find it. A pipe cleaner works well to clear the hole. And while you're at it, check the downward tilt of the rear of the unit. The general rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2" downward tilt. This will help to water to flow to the rear of the drip pan and out thru the drain hole.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Water is backing up and dripping out of wall unit. I've checked drainage pipe and its clear. water is not getting into drainage pipe in unit.

The water dripping from evapourator is due to clogging of the cooling pins.where in the condensed water logs into the front portion into the filter,the front pannel and to the wall.If the unit is slightly tilted, this would be reduced.use a good brush and air pressure to clean the fins.If periodical cleaning of the filter is not done,this can happen.

Dripping inside! The unit is also dripping outside (as I guess it should) but now has started dripping inside after about a half hour's use. The angle of the unit has not changed. Could there be a clog...

The base of the unit is like a tray which collects all the condensation water. At the back of the unit (the part that normally sticks out the wall/window) there is a small tube where the water comes out. It is possible that this hole is blocked up with dust that the unit has drawn in and once it gets wet will block the water run off tube or pipe that can be fitted to it. If this tube is not cleared the tray will fill up and over flow everywhere. Hope this helps you.

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.

Have a Coleman Evcon AH16W10BA dripping water from EVERYWHERE!

Probably the drain is clogh (it's a p.v.c. pipe , or could be a 3/4 or 1" hose comming out of the inside unit) , to clear the drain , the best thing is to blow air pressure thruogh it , and keep it clean by pouring about a cup of bleach every 3/4 months.

Tilt the unit toward the window opening and clear the drain holes in the back and bottom of the unit from debris.
