This is easily remedied by taking a wet vac to the outlet of the drain. If the drain has a tee (found at the indoor coil), be sure to cap it off so that all of the suction goes through the drain pan.

There is water leaking out from the bottom of my furnace. It leaks whenever the ac is running.

Hello, sounds like a clogged condensate line or a faulty condensate pump if the unit has one. Cleaning the drain line should fix the problem.

How do we fix the split unit a/c where water is dripping from the inside unit?

It is possible that there is dirt accumulation if the filters have not been cleaned for a long time making the condensed water to flow out. Also if the indoor unit is fitted with a tilt to the front this can happen as the drain of the collected water flows out. Also the drain tube must not be damaged as it might cause the leak. So remove the front covers and check these problems areas.

The inside unit is leaking water

Water leaking in split unit common, due to air filter & evaporator coil dust blocked- Clean it.
Drain pan and drain hose dust blocked-clean it. And also due to less rpm of indoor motor, there will be forming ice over the coil result to water leaking while defrosting.Replace motor capacitor.

Water leaking from indoor unit against the wall.

It's probably the insulation around your refrigerant pipes. If it is too thin or missing in a section they will condensate.

Unit is leaking water

What is causing this is when you have something cold, the moisture in the air condenses to becomes water. Kinda like when you sweat in the sun. They call this condensation. The unit should be collecting this and draining the water through a hose, or out the back. If there is a hose inside the unit, check that the hose is able to completely flow downwards at least 1/4" per foot. Otherwise, if the unit is a box in a hole or window, slant the unit so the water flows towards the rear.

Hi, your evap. drain is block, i know you are smart, we can do this, remove front cover of evap.(indoor unit) check for location of screws, look carefully you will see drain connection and tray, try to clean, use mild cleaning solvent, or practical way push something flexible into tubing, also clear your air filter, and you'll be in good shape, also check leveling of evap(indoor unit), with spirit level, should be horozontally leved. good luck.

I have a carrier split unit model#38HDL024311. It's dripping out the front of the unit. When I turn it off, There's a stream of water out the front also.

Where is water dripping? Out the outside unit or inside? Evap. Coils (indoor coils) condense when cooling so it is necessary to have a condensate drain hooked up. If the unit is leaking out of something besides the drain like out of the coil case then you have a blockage in your condesate line either in the drain pan under the coil or somewhere in the line that leads to your drain. blow the line both ways with nitrogen or pull the line out and clean it with a hose.

Condensation leaking out of unit

if it is the indoor unit leaking, make sure that all your drain lines are clear.... if you're talking about the outdoor unit leaking water in the heat cycle...that is normal.
