SOURCE: My sister was stumped because

If you remove the lower casing of the unit, you will find that it was design in such a way the water followed a certain track. Your problem should be fixed if you align that track with the opening to coils so water should drain in the proper track.

SOURCE: water leaking inside house

Your problem is there is debris inside of the casing blocking the drain hole in the back of the unit.. Go outside and look under the unit and you will see several holes throughout. These holes allow the condensation to drain out from the bottom of the unit. The best way to clean the unit is to remove the unit from the sleeve take the unit outside and you can wash out the system with a water house as long as you make sure that you don't wet any of the fan motors. The metal thing you refer to is the evaporator coil. If you go to the home improvement store you can purchase a can of coil cleaner. This cleaner is sprayed into the coil at which time it foams up like shaving cream. Let it sit on the coils as directed on the can. Once the time has elapsed rinse the coils well remembering not to get any electrical parts wet (I suggest purchasing a pump up garden sprayer for this because it is easy to control where the water will go) After this is done let the unit sit until the water has disappated then reinstall into its sleeve. The dust by the fan can be removed with a brush and a vacuum (wet Vac). Good luck on repairs

SOURCE: I have a split system SAP-K181AHA, SAP-K241AHA

Air conditioners wring moisture from the surrounding air that collects in a pan under the cooling coil in the inside unit.

Chances are that the condensate drain is plugged or the drain pan is plugged. Look for a hose that exits the inside unit and runs to a drain. You can follow it back to the drain pan of the A/C unit. If there is water sitting in the pan, then either the hose or pan or both are plugged.

Turn the unit off, get a small bucket and remove the drain tube. Catch the water in the bucket. Blow through the drain line until it's clear. If the thought of doing this is too repulsive, then use an air compressor or even a manual tire pump. Now check the drain pan in the unit for debris and remove as much as possible from the pan and the drain fitting.

Both the pan and drain line should be checked at the beginning of each cooling season.

Reinstall the drain tube and see how it works!

SOURCE: Water is leaking inside the house

The drain that should be carrying the condensate water outside is stopped up. Compressed air works well to clear the drain.

Why does my split ac unit leak inside the house?


This happens when the drain pipe is too high, or kinked. The pipe must be lower then the drain pan in order for the water to drain. This is a common problem.

Leaking from inside unit


What is leaking? If it is water, you need to find the drain pipe leading from the inside unit to the outside of the house, and open up the obstruction in it. You could push a wire up through it, or send some compressed air up it. The drain pipe is probably near the ground next to the foundation or in the ceiling of an outside porch.
If this is a window unit leaking water you need to clean the obstruction out of the drain pipe or hole on the outside of the window, probably at the bottom outside rear of the unit.
I wasn't sure from your question if it is leaking water, or leaking refrigerant gas. If it's the gas you probably need to call an A/C repair service.
good luck,

Water leaks from unit often


mcdevito75 Here, all A/C units leak water, if your unit is a window unit you"ll have to re-tilt the unit so that it is leaning more toward outside the window and not toward the inside. Contact an A/C shop in your area they come to the house.

Drainage occurs near the front of the unit, resulting in pools of water leaking onto my window sill. Unit is installed properly, there is no drain hole to direct water away from the insides of the walls...


The A/C unit should be tilted slightly to the rear and this will allow the water to leak to the outside of the window, you may have to drill a small hole in the case to drain if there is no pre-existing hole.

Our carrier reverse cycle airconditioner is leaking inside the house after a hour of use. how can we fix this? we have cleaned the filters in the inside unit and it still leaks,it works fine as a heater...


Did you blow out the drain? If so pull the front off of the air handler unit. Ckean out drain pan. This drain pan had small holes on either side that run from the sode drain clean those out. Also if your coil is dirty it will pull water back and cause it to leak. Try cleaning coil and dain pan plus blow out drain. Rus
