Generally speaking there is no pump to pump out the water. There are exceptions if the unit must drain through the attic for example. However these pumps are accessories that sit outside the unit. I would suspect a blocked drain first of all.

WATER LEAK BOTTOM OF UNIT


If this is a central AC, the
condensation drips off the cooling coils into a pan. From the pan, it is suppose to either go into a drain directly or into a sump, which in turn pumps it into a drain. Dirt or mold frequently plug the drain out of the pan or the drain line itself. You need to clear the drain with a wire or forced air. If there is a trap in the drain line, it may be plugged. If there is a trap and the line is not draining from the trap into a sewer, then I suggest you remove the trap, which is intended to block sewer gas from coming up the drain line. If it doesn't drain into a sewer, there is no sewer gas to block and the trap is unnecessary. The credulous building code requires the trap, regardless of whether or not the unit drains into a sewer.

If you are talking about a window unit, the problem is similar - the water is being blocked from where it is supposed to drain. With a window unit the water is usually picked up by the fan that cools the
condenser (hot coils) on the outside of the unit. The fan sprays the water on the hot coils and evaporates it so it doesn't drip out of the unit.

Getting excessive condensation causing water problems at base of unit. Bought new pump but problem returned. Cleaned lines to outside by using wet/dry vac. How do I get to evaporator coil to spray it and...


Hello, in order to get to the evaporator coil you must cut into the plenum above the Furnace. This will require sheet metal tools and being very careful not to puncture the coil. Many times a cracked condensate pan under the evapoartor coil can cause water to leak down to the base of the unit.

Our A/C unit when running, the drain water isn now backing up and leaking over the side in our basement. we've never had this problem before.


Hello, this usually indicates a clogged condensate line or cracked condensate pan. Try using a wet/dry by attaching one end of it to the otlet of the comdensate line, the suction pressure should dislodge the clog. If the line appears clean the the pan is cracked and will require a technician to come out and fix it.

I have a Ruud Model UBHC-17J11NFD in my basement. Water is coming from the bottom of unit and pooling onto the basement floor. What should I check first?


Hello, most likely you have a clogged condensate line, in order to clean it you will need a wet/ dry vac and attach it to the outlet of the line and the suction pressure should dislodge the clog. Also, if the unit uses a condensate pump make sure it is working, if its not it can cause water to pour out onto the floor.

There is water leaking out from the bottom of my furnace. It leaks whenever the ac is running.


Hello, sounds like a clogged condensate line or a faulty condensate pump if the unit has one. Cleaning the drain line should fix the problem.

Unit in basement leaking around bottom


The drain line coming from the internal drain pan to the pump is clogged, causing overflow of the internal pan. That means the water never reaches the pump, and is simply overflowing into the bottom of the unit/duct.

The drain line and pan need to be cleaned and cleared.

A shop vac is a wonderful tool for such a job.

When the unit stops running water is leaking down through the filter.


Either the drain tube is blocked or the drain tray has a hole rusted in it. My unit is a York and I replaced the condensate drain tray.

Leaking water in my closest where the handler is


The condensate drain line may be blocked with sludge. Usually it can be unplugged by blowing compressed air backwards from the end of the line. If the line drains into a condensate pump, the pump could be bad and overflowing.

Condensation leaking out of unit


if it is the indoor unit leaking, make sure that all your drain lines are clear.... if you're talking about the outdoor unit leaking water in the heat cycle...that is normal.
