Water leaking out the front right edge of the case.


the window unit should be 'slanted' (just slightly) to the rear so that the condensation water can drain out the back of the unit.
Check and make sure the drain hole is open and not clogged too.

My friedrich zq05c10 is leaking water into my wall. Is there a drain plug and how do i clean it? it is at a 1/4 inch tilt toward the outside, so it is not that. any help is appreciated


Hi,
If you go outside and look at the bottom of the unit, you will see a rubber stopper in a hole aproximatly 1/4 to 1/2 inch in diameter, remove this plug and the unit should drain properly, if the problem persists, go out side to back of unit and remove the retainer screw at the bottom edge of unit , go to the inside portion and unscrew and remove the face and slide unit toward you , the bottom of the pan behind the evaporator coil section there is a indenture where condensate escapes the drain pan, make sure this area is clear of debris, you can use a pipe cleaner to do this.
this should help.

Internal unit is leaking water


Check condensate tubes - they may be blocked and need cleaning. All manufactures recommend having your furnace and air conditioner checked and cleaned on an anual basis. You can clean your condensate tubes yourself - if it is severly blocked you may have to use compressed air to unblock, but first to a combination of bleach and water. Better yet a technician will clean the condensate tubes and well as the rest of the unit so that it's running at its top efficiency

THE AIR CONDITIONER LEAKS WATER FROM THE FRONT OF THE UNIT.


Look for the drain line coming out of the unit typically in the bottom. Clear out this drain line with a vacuum or water hose. It should begin to drain and stop leaking.

If the leaking continues, you may have a cracked drain pan or severe drain blockage.

Duo Therm dripping water in camper when shut off. My Dometic Duo Therm Ducted AC drips quite a bit of water when shut off after running for several hours on hot humid days. The condensate lines are open....


Remove the filter at ceiling and run the AC on cool etc, and see if you can feel cool air leaking across to return air inlet where the divider between cold and return is. Check along all edges, etc for any cool air . Careful of wiring, but you should be able to get hand in there and feel especially around the edges where it should be sealed tight. Quite often a leak in that area causes cold air to enter return air and causes excessive condensation. Another thing to check is look way up inside opening for return air, with a flashlight and see if any dirt/dust on coils and fins of evaporator, and if so, needs to be cleaned off with a vacuum, and brush attachment. Let me know what you find.

Dometic AC Unit is leaking


Your drain pan is plugged up and allowing the water to rise above the edge of the pan and into the coach. The best way to repair this is to get on the roof and lay down next to the air conditioner. Look underneath the unit and you should see two white nipples sticking out the bottom about 1/3 of the way back from the front. These are the drain ports for the pan. Take a wire hanger or a long pick and work it into the hole of the nipple. The hole is kind of small and it would not hurt to open it up a bit. If you are unable to access the nipples in this manner, then the AC has to be removed and stood up so that the pan can be cleaned.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

P.S. The reason that it is only leaking during the day is because the evaporator creates more condensation in the hotter parts of the day than at night.

Is there a drainage plug or hose on the air conditioner? It's leaking.


To increase the efficiency of the air conditioner's cooling to meet US energy requirements, most manufacturers eliminated the traditional drain plug. Instead, they switched to a design that used the extracted moisture from the room to help evaporatively cool the condenser.

To do this, the traditional fan blade was replaced with a 'sling blade' which was a fan blade with a rim or ring around it. The drain plug or drain hole in the bottom of the pan was eliminated and replaced with overflow notches in the back edge. Along with a solid piece drain pan, this provided a pool of water for the edge of the sling blade to dip into and pick up water to 'sling' or spray around the compartment to create evaporative cooling. The overflow notches established the maximum depth of the water pool and are also the lowest place when installed properly.

Although this is more efficient, this has caused 2 problems: increased noise as the water is slung around and water spray from the side air vents.

Persons have drilled holes through the pan or back edge as drains. This is not recommended as it negatively effects the colling ability of the unit and could lead to a voided warranty or premature failure.

Instead, insure that there is adequate pitch with the installation and make sure the overflow notches are kept clear.

If you 'need' a drain hose, my suggestion would be to drill into drain pan's back edge or the rear potions of the sides. The hole should be at the same level as the overflow notches. Once the drain hose is installed, block/cover the overflow notches to redirect the excess water to the drain hose instead.
