Some have screws the hold the covers on others like mine just have some clips that hold them on. If you don't see any screws then you probably have clips and just need to pull at the top of which ever cover you are trying to remove. Your problem sounds like a clogged drain line. Let me know what you find.

Have a Rheem central air unit situated outdoors, 20 yrs/old. The condensers are contained within it. I can run it 2 days straight, no problems. As soon as I turn it off, water winds up inside.


If the unit is freezing you will begin to see frost building up on the larger diameter copper. Also if you take the panel off of the evaporator coil (section that the copper is entering) you should be able to dump some water in the pan And make sure it is draining. Slowly pour the water.

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.

Hi. I have an Intertherm air handler and central air unit in my mobile home - Model # (E2EB-012HB) air handler, and a (03QA- 036U- B) A Coil.Simply put, When the cooling unit it running, it cools very...


The A coil (Evaporator) is dirty and needs cleaned by a professional. Dirt has clogged the fins in the coil and is blocking most of the airflow through the coil so the air has to go around the coil picking up the water as it does and sending it everywhere.

Has a service tech remove and clean your coil and reinstall it and your problem will be solved.

There is no schematic or number on air handler .outside unit is Goodman # CPE48-1FB.How can i get a schematic for Air handler.


I need more info than just the outdoor unit number. The air handler will be a specific number. If you pull the access panel off the heater, there will be a faceplate inside with the unit name and model number as well as a schematic on the back side of the door.

TCL model tac 24chs/k air conditioner is leaking from the


You will want to remove the panel in front of the air handler, usually a few 5/16 screws.
Once open then with a flashlight look down inside where the water collects in the condensate drain pan.
Verify that the pan is not full of water or algae build up.
If it is, then attach a wet vac to your drain outside and while it is pulling on the drain line spray some water inside till it is fully clean.
If it is not full of water then check the pvc pipes that are attached to the drain pan, they may have came loose and may need to be teflon taped and reconnected to the pan. Also verify there are no cracks in the pan.
Lastly inspect the bottom of the evaporator coil (Not the top) pull out the filter and make sure the coil is clean or water could drip down past the pan into your dwelling. Make sure as well that the insulation on your panel that covers the unit is intact and not worn away.

Good Luck!

Air Conditioner (RUUD model: UBHC-14J06NFD) is leaking water from bottom. It is causing a major puddle in Air Intake area.


The condensate drain line/pan is clogged causing the condensation to overflow the pan.

The easy way to fix that is attatch a powerfull wet/dry shop vac to the end of the drain line and such out whatever is causiing the clog. Also take off the panel to the evaporator coil and clean out the pan with the shop vac.

To double check that the clog has been removed, pour a gallon or two of water into the pan and ensure that it is draining properly.

Bubbling water sound in AC. Water in the tray is cold. Unit continues to make a gurgling sound.


The gurgling sound is the liquid refrigerant going through the refrigeration copper lines , it's normal. And the water in the tray is condensation and is cold because is from the circulating air that gets cold going through the air handler(inside unit) You only has to keep the drain clean ,by pouring 1/2 cup of clorox every 3 or 4 months.

I want to find the transformer for the 36 volt inside unit. Is it in the inside unit or outside unit .I have no power to the inside unit however the outside unit has power,and the inside unit appears to be...


It's a 24v transformer. Your indoor unit houses the transformer for the outdoor unit. The outdoor has a low voltage (24v) supply running to it to push in the contactor for the outdoor unit to run. If your air handler inside has no power then it will kill your LOW VOLTAGE power to the outdoor unit. You will still have the high voltage power to the outdoor unit. You may have a fuse on the switch for your air handler blown if there is one. On the disconnect switch mounted to your air handler, you will have a door to open and a fuse in there. If not, check your main breaker at the panel. If you don't know what a transformer looks like, you may want to have someone familiar with electrical of HVAC help you. To check the transformer for power, you first need power to your air handler, which you don't have. I would say that is not your problem. I would assume your air conditioner is not running outside, correct? Your problem is the power (HIGH VOLTAGE) to your air handler. Loose wires, blown fuse, tripped breaker etc...
