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?

    There was a block that I found after further investigation and for some reason there was a lot of cardboard mixed in the drip tray.



    Thankyou for you help

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.

    I also wanted. to add there may be dirt that is clogging the drip tray you may have to disassemble the unit to clean out the drip tray. If you don't feel comfortable doing this you may need to contact a repair man

After switching on the ac unit water start dripping


I assume inside the air handler closet, underneath the unit, or wherever unit is located.
Sounds like condensate line is stopped up.
You need to blow out with compressed air. You must make sure that you block air from exiting from open end of line. I use a plastic shopping sack. May have to remove cover to evaporator and insert hose in condensate drain connection in drain pan. Stuff the bag in around hose and opening to seal and blast air into line. Be sure that if there is a "T" fitting with riser and cap on the end, that it is secure, otherwise you may get a shower. You also may use the riser with the cap remove to blow out. insert hose past opening leading back to evaporator drain push bag down past opening leading back to evap drain, then seal around inserted hose and blast. The riser with the cap is where you would pour some bleach every couple of months to keep line clear.

Whirlpool refrigerator EL7ATRRMS08 Drip Tube Clogged


Best bet on that is to remove the evaporator cover and pour very hot water down the drain. Should be eight screws. Removing the drain tube should not be necessary to repair your issue.

Sink backs up with water when running faucet,dishwasher does not drain,all pipes under sink clear


We had this problem and found out that the pipe leading away from the house was clogged. Have a plumber look (with a camera) down your clean out, and see if that is the problem. They can snake it from the clean out and clear out tree roots or whatever is the problem.

Water not channelling out the back of fridge. channel is not blocked but continues to build up with water


The channel may not be blocked, but clearly the pipe that leads down to the tray mounted on the compressor at the back of the unit must be.

I would suggest that you putt the fridge out from the wall and locate the pipe that leads to the plate over the compressor. Try blowing into the pipe. This may clear it, or may show you that there is a considerable blockage taht you can't huff and puff away. In that event a nice soft bit of flexible wire may come in handy to stuff up the pipe, with someone looking in the front of the fridge to shout "There it is" and "YUK!" When it pops out with nasty things clinging to it.

BE SURE that you put the pipe back to drip onto the plate, or you will get a wet floor!

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.

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.

Water accumulation underneath the bottom vetable


Two solutions
1 If a frost free fridge/freezer - ice build up in internal cooler - defrost totally until no more water
2 if ordinary fridge/freezer look inside at the back, you should see a very shallow 'V' shaped plastic channel running to a small drain hole which leads to the rear outside of the unit. This channel collects the water drips from the cooler
Clear this hole with a pipe cleaner or cocktail stick or similar

Dripping water inside fridge. Can't find drain hose


at the rear of the fridge unit there is a hole, normally at the bottom of a shallow "v" shape. there should be a plastic insert in it to clear any blockages, just wiggle it a bit. failing that a pipe cleaner will do the same.

Water in washing machine from emptying sink.


A washing machine filling with water overnight or when not in use has two possible causes. Either the water is running into the washing machine from the sink ( If the drain hose is connected directly to the u-bend under the sink ) or one of the water valves isn't shutting off properly and water is dripping slowly but surely into the washing machine. The latter problem can take several hours before the water level rises high enough inside the washing machine to be visible.
It's easy to track down the cause of water entering the washing machine when not in use. If turning off the hot and cold water taps stops it, then it's one of the water valves not shutting off properly, and needs replacing. It's just a process of elimination to find out which one it is. If not, the water is likely to be coming from the sink (use above link). Sometimes by removing the soap dispenser drawer and carefully observing inside the soap dispenser you can clearly see water dripping in at regular intervals.
Blocked water valve filters: I've come across cases where a filter in the water valve has become caked in a brown sludgy mud-like substance due to disturbances in the plumbing. This could be because of work carried out on internal plumbing or even after workmen have turned the water off in the street to work on the water mains. After the water is turned back on, muddy or gritty water can enter the household pipework and when you use the washing machine it can draw this contaminated water into it.
In this scenario very fine grit or muck can get past the filter and stop it shutting off properly, or the filter is so blocked that water pressure to the valve is reduced enough to prevent the valve shutting off properly. Remove the water valve filter with some pliers and thoroughly clean it out. If the fault persists, replace the valve.
Important things to watch out for are -
  1. Washing machine water valves need a certain amount of water pressure to actually ensure the water is shut off properly. Therefore, if your water pressure is very low, it can seep in past the closed valve. This problem is less likely to suddenly appear unless your water pressure has suddenly dropped. It's more likely to be a problem with a new installation. ( Related: Low water pressure and washing machines )
  2. A faulty tap can mean that although you turn it off, the water supply isn't actually cut, so be careful of assuming if the fault still occurs, that you have definitely discounted the water valves. If unsure, you would have to disconnect the hot and cold fill hoses to ensure the water supply is properly cut when the taps are turned off. This problem is a lot more common with water taps that turn off with a red or blue plastic lever.
  3. If the washing machine has just been filling, you may get some dripping of water into the soap dispenser for a few minutes after. Don't mistake this for a valve not shutting off properly.
  4. If the water ever gets turned off while work is carried out on the water mains in the street or for major plumbing in your home, run lots of water in the house through taps at the sinks until it runs clear after the water is turned back on.
Faulty water valves should be replaced or there is risk of flooding.
