Water coming from aircon inside


Typically a blocked evaporator drain. Remove filter and inspect the drain pan which is below the radiator looking bit. Clear any obvious blockage around the outlet. Alternatively, find the drain outlet and blow back up it gently. This can be done with compressed air or similar. Take a photo of the indoor / incar unit and post it here if you are still stuck.

AC unit is leaking water out on the inside left corner of the unit when on.


The A/C unit is not installed properly. A/C units must be installed so that the unit is tipped or pitched to the rear. Condensation forms naturally when warm, humid air is passed over cold surfaces of the cooling fins (like a glass of cold water "sweats" in the summer). The water should run down the fins and drip on to the bottom of the enclosure, run to the back and drip onto the ground. Your A/C is either level or pitched in - meaning the back is slightly higher than the front, causing the water to run to the front instead of the back.

If it is tipped or pitched to the rear, but still getting water inside - the drain hole(s) in the A/C enclosure may be clogged. Shut the A/C off and locate and clear the hole(s) outside or tip it back slightly more.

I hope this helps. Please rate my reply "4 thumbs up" if it did. Thanks!

We have a steadily dripping tap. Can you please help? thank you.


You don't say anything about what kind of faucet you have, so this may not apply. But if yours is the kind with handles you turn to control the water, you probably have worn-out compression washers. In this kind of faucet, water is shut off by pressing a rubber washer on the end of a threaded stem against an opening in the faucet body. When you turn the handle, you move the washer away from its seat and the water can flow. Over time the washer gets worn and no longer seals off the water. Also, the valve seat the washer presses against can wear and allow water to sneak past the seal. The result is that annoying drip or a steady trickle.

This site, among many others, shows how to change a washer and fix most drippy faucets. If you search for "repair a leaky faucet" you'll find lots of sites to pick from, including many with videos. If you faucet is not a compression type, a single-lever cartridge for instance, there are links to other repair procedures.

If your faucet is old and the parts very badly corroded and worn, you might want to fix the leak by replacing the entire stem as a unit. You can find replacement stems for most brands of faucet at big-box home improvement stores and at many hardware store. It's a little more expensive, but often much easier to unscrew the old one and pop in the new than to start trying to get the old washer off the stem.

A last tip: Whenever you do any work on a faucet, remove the aerator from the spout and run the water to help clear the line. If you just turn the water back on and run the faucet, debris that was kicked up during the repair can clog the aerator screen. Then you're left wondering why you get only a weak trickle or no water at all after you fixed the trouble.

Our air conditioner starts dripping water inside the unit inside the house.


water dripping is to be expected, dont worry about it. But it sounds like its not tipped to the outside enough. Also check inside under the cover, if leaves and debris get stuck in there it will change the direction of the water flow.

Water dripping inside window opening


I would make sure the 'drain hole' is clear and not stopped up. Sounds like it could be stopped up and you have so much water in the unit it's over-flowing and coming out inside the window.

hope this helps.

p.s. one other thing - you might need to put another hole in the unit (to allow better draining). Typically these units just drip water outside and putting (with a drill) another hole in the bottom of the unit to allow better draining is easily done.

Kelvinator aircon is dripping water from air vent in house


Sounds as if unit is freezing over----typically a response to lack of proper ventilation-----check all filters and access panels to unit and clear or clean as needed-----if unit has a drip pan make sure unit has been positioned properly so as to catch excess......properly ventilating unit should resolve issue though

Ford Fiesta 2003 1.3 If I run the aircon water leaks onto the floor of the drivers side (by the pedals, alot of water.


In the dashboard,set down low is a driptray.It collects water that comes off the aircon.It has a hose (sometimes 2) that drains the water out of the car via the firewall so it drips onto the road.This is blocked or the tray has a buildup of gunk.The hose is about 1/2 inch thick.If you lay on the floor where it leaks with a torch you should find it.Or look in the engine bay,just to the left or right of centre(which side leaks?)and backtrace it into the car.You may find the inside hose has fallen off allowing the water to drip inside.Hope this helps you

Amana AP095R Portable Air Conditioner is dripping water constantly. It didn't use to do this. What's wrong here?


all air conditioners condense water .. the water is normally drained to the outside thru a hole near the outside bottom of the unit .. the unit has to be mounted so that it doesnt tilt inward .. the drain hole has to be cleaned once in a while ... if its clogged or if the unit is tilted inward then the water will drain inside the house .. less likely but possible is a cracked or damaged drip pan inside the unit ... thats a shallow pan under the condenser (cold) coil that captures the water and directs it toward the outside drain .. so check the tilt and clean the drain
