    What kind of A/C is it? is there an outdoor part that connects by two lines to your furnace? It may be normal condensation dripping off of the larger (suction) line.

This is condensation from the evaporator this will occur because of the heat exchange from the warm air hitting the cold evapoator.

Smelly air conditioner

If it is a split unit like the one in the image, the drip pan is under the evaporator and it drains automatically to outside via a black 1/2" utility pipe.

How Do I get my air conditioner to stop dripping?

It's condensation. With central air, there is pipes that either discharge or recirculate it. Window a/c's do not have that. Try to position it so it drips outside.

Water flushed from unit inside the room instead of beeing flushed outside throw the out let pipe

Possible that the tilt is more to the front that makes the water drip down. Another reason is that the drain pipe can be clogged with dirt build up and so it flushes back.
Finally if the evaporator is dirty and clogged due to dirt accumulation the water might drip down to the front.
So please check you filter, use high pressure air on to clean and reset the panel.

It seems that my air conditioner works fine. But there is no water dripping through the discharge pipe or anywhere else as far as I can see. Thank you for help. Max

It may simply be a case that the humidity level is not high enough to generate water drainage at this time.Especially, since you said, the "air conditioner is working fine." However, if you are still concerned, check the outside drain hole or tube of clogs.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

The indoor split system is dripping water what can i do?

There should be a drain pipe to send the condensed moisture outside. Take the cover off the unit and check where the tray is and unblock the pipe.

Is it typical for water to drip from furnace through pipe to outside? i was told from city inspector that this is indicator that unit has problem and it's releasing water throught secondary valve.

condensation should go to your drain pipe, sometimes the pipe that goes outside doesnt have declivity for the water to go in the drain pipe

Whirlpool Air Con Drainage issue

Yes, there should be a place for the condensate to drain outside. It's apparently clogged and the drip pan is overfilling. Look for a tube or an opening outside where the condensate should be exiting. This needs to be unclogged.

the slope is downwards to furnace.The slope isnt for the moisture it is a rise for the flue gas to go outside.The intake is usually connected to the furnace to use outside air for the combustion but it does not have to be.if it isnt an option to take the pipe apart to glue it all up you can seal the water leaks with silicon.anymore questions
