Question about Bryant Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Our Bryant air conditioner that we bought a year ago started leaking water yesterday but was still working. It isn't working at all today even though the thermostat says "on". Is there a way to reset it?

Hi,

These symptoms usually indicate a problem with the drain. If the drain for the evaporator is restricted it may leak, if it leaks enough it will activate a float switch that turns off the air cooling unit.

The first thing you need to do is locate the evaporator, depending on where you live and what type of home you have it will be in the basement or the attic most likely. There will be a pan under the cooling coils, if in that pan there is water then your drain for the cooling coils is plugged. Look above that pan for another drain line that is the one you need to clean out.

In the pan that has the water you will find some type of float or water switch that is keeping the A/C from coming on.

Send me a message here if you have questions.

Our Bryant heat pump is leaking water from the base. This seems to be occuring on particularly hot days when the air conditioning has been turned to a lower temperature.


The drain pan for the evaporator needs to be checked for cracks & make sure the evaporator is centrally lined up to the pan. Sometimes condensate shield are installed to manage the water blown off the evaporator coil. Generally with the evaporator housing open, check any signs of where water has been traveling ie rust lines or calcium deposit lines to determine were the water is coming from.

I keep getting water leaking out of my bryant heat pump (indoor unit) in the summer when the wheather is very hot and humid for a long time. I suspect there is too much ice buildup and it is dripping...


If it is freezing up then it is for sure dripping outside the catch pan.. Have you been able to take the front cover off and see ice on the coil.... ?

Can u plz tell me what wrong with my air


Mary it sounds like you just need to take another look at the drain hose and where it connects in the unit. Also make sure the hose isn't kinked or stopped up. If there is a pan inside that catches water make sure the hose is lower than the pan. Hope this helps.

It sounds like your defrost board failed. You will need a tech to replace it. With that model it may have a parts warranty but you pay labor(?)

External water tank


Dear ziba1--posted the same problem two days ago and it doesn't appear to be on the site yet. Anyway, picked away at this again today (literally took the machine apart) and found the problem to be a clog in the drainage system. This explains why your external tank will not fill and why there is a leak--the drip tray under the compressor is not draining due to the clog in the drainage system. I fixed this simply by taking a narrow device and gently scraping out the drain hole of the drip tray (which is located just below the compressor...the compressor is located on the same side as your air filter). After successfully cleaning out this drain, I proceeded to flush the water out thoroughly with water. Give it a try--worked for me. I had all but given up and had already set up an appointment to have it serviced. Cheers
