My vcbb363lss sweats pretty bad on the back of the unit. the water is landing on the floor. I put some insulation on the back but it still seems to have moisture on the back. The unit works great. Any solutions would be appreciated.

don't know what brand that is but it sounds like the drain may be stopped up.

Small water leak on floor on both sides of door. w ater is not coming from refrigerator or bottom freezer unit

Did you notice any moisture on the main cabinet at the area the doors seal against? Some models have a heater imbedded in the cabinet edge at the door seal to keep the metal cabinet from sweating much like a glass does when filled with water and ice cubes. If the heater is not on the metal sweats and leaks down to the floor. Some refrigerators have an option switch called and energy saver that can turn that heater on or off. Off is OK for winter but needs to be on in humid weather if house is not air conditioned. Heater could also be burned out (bad).

Water on floor from ac unit

Hi John,

First, water from an A/C unit is normal, and is created when warm, moist air is passed over a cold surface (like a glass of cold water sweats sitting in a warm room). This is called condensation.

Solve the issue by making sure the unit is tilted slightly back - towards the outside. This allows the condensation that drips off the cold coil will land on the bottom of the case and roll towards the rear - which is outside.

Once it is tilted back, inspect the underside of the outside portion of the unit. You should find several openings designed to allow the water to drain out and fall to the ground. Over time, these holes can become clogged with dust, dirt, spiders, etc. Simply insert a small screwdriver into the hole(s) - just enough to clear the obstruction.

If the unit is draining water out the back to the outdoors AND also inside, water can not drain fast enough from the A/C. You may not have cleared all the openings outside and / or not have provided enough of an angle to the tilt. Locate and clear the additional openings and make the tilt adjustments as needed.

Make sure the filter is clean! A dirty filter can cause the A/C to eventually ice up - providing only partial cooling. When the unit is shut off, the ice will rapidly melt and may do so faster than the water can drain outside - leaving puddles on your floor again.

I hope this helps!

My water heater is sweating badly what should i do?

You can but a insulated blanket on it to help with the sweating. Most major hardware stores should have them or be able to order one for the size of water heater you have.

I would Like to obtain a schematic of my Coleman Presidential 2 Heater/Air Conditioner,I want to flush the condenser.I saw it leaking or sweating pretty badly under the house,A friend said it may be...

You do not need a schematic, the large line under the house should be insulated, if not insulate it. If its not insulated, it will collect condensation, because the line is lower than dew point.
If you want to clean the indoor coil, remove the cover where the lines enter the unit, the coils if dirty will be on the side next to to the air filter, use a vacuum with a brush, and get the larger stuff off, then use 409 or something like it and spray the coil, on the dirty side and let it soak for a few minutes and then use water to rinse the coil, if the furnace is under the coil keep the water from dripping into it. Then put a good quality air filter in, and then the coil will stay clean.

In our company there is ductatble AC unit having capacity of 10 Ton which catert the AC requirement of two office rooms. This AC unit is installed in passage above false sealing and duct is extened to...

Hi, this is a 10 ton a/c unit, more then likely has 2 stages of cooling. You say the copper suction line is wrapped with insulation already, and the problems continue? What you need to do next as the evaporator coils are in the ceiling, is to have a condensation pan made to cover the bottom of the unit to catch any moisture that drips from the suction line and evaporator coils and have a 3/4" drain that will drain into existing condensate line. You can't prevent the suction line from sweating has thee cold temperatures are reaching its dew point and will always drip. The line should be wrapped with a black cork type insulation that has a sticky back that is made for this suction line. All you can do is have a sheet metal pan made to put under this unit to catch the moisture and let it drain or evaporate if its not real bad. I have seen this many times with units that are in the ceiling, which will destroy the tiles. Keep in mind that the suction line will reach temperatures of 40*F and will drip condensation when it is cooling so they should have put a pan under this unit when it was installed. This will solve the problem, and that's about all that you can do. Please don't forget to rate me as I know you will be kind. I wish I had other ways to solve this, but this is the only way, and the way it should have been done to begin with.

We had 2 new units installed 2 yrs ago and now it's sweating

1st of all the pan under your unit should not have water in it unless the primary drain from the evaporator coil is plugged.

2nd the secondrary drain pan underneath the unit should go to some kind of drain, along with the drain
from the evaporator coil. They should not be hooked
together until they reach the proper drain.

Check to see if they are hooked up together, if one is
plugged the other one will be to. The drain line could
be to small as well, check to see if they ran the condensate drain in 3/4inch pvc pipe or hose minimum.

It could very well be that they did not insulate the plenum, if it is sweating on the outside, insulate it.

Moved homes and took old dishwasher to new home (about 3yrs old), now seems the machine is loud (sounds like disposal is louder) all insullation is still on machine. we did go fom carpet floor to tile...

make sure your unit is secured properly[screwed up into counter and leveled], to minimise vibration. other wise you may want to try putting some insulation behind the kick plate.
