Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

I have a Carrier ac unit model number 38eh024300dl. I was wondering how old the unit was. The drip pan underneath the evaporator A coil is broken and was wondering if there was a replacement pan for this or would I have to have the entire coil replaced?

In some cases if you complain to Carrier Corporation... LOUDLY they will wave the out of Warranty because of the closeness. Make a point of stating " I'll never own another Carrier anything " might help. I have seen this work. If it dosn't work the first time try again and ask to talk to the supervisor over who your talking to. If the coil is bad now it must have been bad in april while under warranty, leaks usually start slow could take a year to leak out.
also let them know your Dad is a HVAC guy this could also help. THE WHEEL THAT SQUEAK'S GETS THE GREASE.
Carrier is a large company and does not like unhappy customers. Good Luck

SOURCE: AC not cooling enough

Probably low on refrigerant, if valve moves when heated it is working, assuming the system is matched.

We are from ac company in Georgia,and I personally have changed out over 50 coils this summer. Mostly 2006 and 2007 models, R22 and R410a..I think there is a BIG problem and if you push hard enough they will pay the labor.

Our Carrier evaporative coil is broken beyond repair due to copper too thin to hold the refrigerant. Our home and A/C is less than 4 years old and the AC repairman said that if we replace it with another...


If in fact the coil is less than five years old then the parts should be under warranty. Labor only charge. As for the tubing, all coils have very thin walled tubing as to transfer heat more effectively. Aspen coils did have defected coils which were manufactured for a number of brands at about the time you purchased your unit. The manufacture may step up and help if you contact them directly, customer support from Carrier. Estimated cost for labor depending where you live should be between $500 to $800 dollars depending on installation. It could be a little more if it is an attic installation.

Drain pan overflows weekly - compressor hot to touch model FRT18B5JMO 3 years old


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

I note that this unit has a rear coil condensor on the back of the freezer and that there is not a cooling fan.

In the drip pan Item 26 of the manual below there is a tube that is item 87 also in the parts manual below on pages 8 (picture) and 9 (part numbers). Make sure the tube 97 is above / resting in the top of the drip pan item 26. That helps evaporate the water.

If your getting lots of ice build up on the evaporator coils each week you need to make sure the freeser door gasket is sealing properly. It should mate to the chassis all the way around the door. Any gaps will cause excess ice build up and more water will be seen during each automatic defrost cycle possibly over-filling the drip pan.

Parts manual is here:

I have a 1986 Jamboree and the Duo Therm Roof AC is dripping (pouring) in to RV and onto the floor. How can I fix this problem.


You will have to go up on the roof, take the cover off of the unit, and check the condensate drain. It is probably stopped up with dirt, etc. The condensate pan and drain are underneath the evaporator coil which is the "cold " coil. While you are at it, you should also check the rear coil that blows out the hot air on the roof and make sure it isn't stopped up as well. You can clean a condensate pan out with compressed air or maybe even a shop vac depending on the unit. The only other thing it could be is if the pan itself is rusted out.

I have a Carrier air unit that is not draining properly. I have checked for clogs and could find none. The pvc pipes are completely clear. Where the pvc pipe attatches to the unit, there is not even a drop...


If the whole drain is free of debris then you probably have a cracked drip pan under your evaporator and it will need replaced. A service technician will need to remove the coil and check the pan for breaks and cracks.

Carrier ac leaking h2o i have a 1/2 and a 3/4 pvc pipe outside the unit the 1/2 in has a cap on it. do i force air down both...i can not get into the unit it seems to have white plaster type glue ...


You need to access the evaporator coil on the inside of your air handler and unplug the drain for the condensate. It should be the 3/4 inch line, if the 1/2 inch line is capped then it is not doing anything and has probably been abandoned.Open up the unit and clean the drip pan and drain hole where the 3/4 line starts. This should clear up your water leak problem.

Water in the drip pan- what is causing it?


I assume you are talking about the indoor unit. One function of the a/c system is to dehumidify the air. Condensation forms on the cooling coil and runs to the drip pan. There should be a drain line on the drip pan that drains the pan outside. These sometimes become clogged causing the water level in the pan to rise. Try some mild drain cleaner to open the line. Hope this helps. Let me know what you find.

Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Kenmore fridge is leaking inside from light switch


The drip pan is underneath on the floor. You don't really need to see it. Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

One of the cause of water dripping in the indoor is restricted drainage. To Identify if your drainage is restricted.
- Turn "off " the circuit breaker and take out the face cover of the unit.
- Turn "on" the circuit breaker and start the unit, wait until the unit drips.
- When the unit dripped check the drain pan if overflowed with water.
- If the drain pan is full of water you need to flush the drainage with water to remove the restriction. If the pressure of water in your area is high you can use your garden hose to flush the drainage.

Another is dirty evaporator fins (icing), dirty drain pan, broken drain pan or incorrect installation.

YOU CAN LOCATE THE DRAINAGE AT THE LEFT OR RIGHT SIDE OF THE DRAIN PAN
