Dripping water noise in A/C

My unit after running for a few hours sounds like a waterfall inside. Water seems to be moving around, but I never see any. Rarely, unless it is very humid outside, does any water drip outside from the unit. Any thoughts?

Yes, your ddrain holes are plugged and it should be,a ccording to plumbers standard slopped away from the building at 1/4 inch per foot in order to properly drain. Or else you will end up with a mold machine. I'd put a teaspoon of bleach in there now.

Its's very important these drain outside. (since it's basically distilled water it is GREat on plants, btw minus the bleach, of course.

It sounds like a seal has broken and water is getting inside, tripping the GFCI. it may be possible to get a new set of gaskets for the pump, but it is not really an easy thing to do. Three years if it runs all day is quite a lot of hours. You could try a local electric motor shop, and ask for an estimate.

My hampton bay air conditioner has started leaking badly after running it lfor a few hours, from the front right side


For window mount units, the unit must slope towards the outside. Water is a normal byproduct of refrigeration, like condensation on a glass of ice water.... Volume of water is not an issue, water dripping inside is. All water is intended to go outside, via unit slope.

Water drip at base of freezer door at bottom!


Have you had a chance to locate the location the water inside freezer? There are many reasons for this to happen I just can not say it would be a defrost condensate drain blockage. Most times it is. Every 8 to 10 hours your freezer defrost and the water is surposed to follow a pipe or drain through the refrigerator to a pan below refrigerator where the warm air from condenser evaporates the water back to the air inside your home. That drain line sometimes slowly becomes blocked and then the drain hole becomes clogged with ice. Once that happens the drain needs to be cleared. I will try to help you solve this so for now I need you to see if water looks as if it came from rear of freezer. Placing photos on Flickr would be great! So tell me where you see it and yes we may need to pull a few things out. This is nothing a few towels, hair dryer hot water and Clorox and a wet vacuum cannot handle. Sea Breeze

It seems it's collecting water in the tray and blowing it out through the top vent, dripping from the bottom inside the house and is making a sound constantly like the fan is hitting water as it blows.


AC units do take the humidity out of the air and water collects in the bottom. The unit should be tilted slightly downward on the outside so that the water runs outrside. Make sure the drain holes are clear. The pinging noise is common, the fan is hitting drops of water, nothing to be concerned about

I have a unit in the attic and another part outside. I can stand inside under the ceiling vent and hear water running. When the unit cuts off, the water sound quits. I'm afraid something is not draining...


Sounds like your drain has sagged from the heat in the attic. It then backs up in the pan and sloshes around from the air moving. Get up there and see if that is the case, if so support the drain line so water runs freely to outside. This is an experienced guess. Good luck!

Car has a skunk like smell and AC question


Listen people...it isn't a skunk! My elantra smells like a skunk too and I am sure I didn't hit one. I think that it might be my battery; since battery acid and skunk smell are chemically the same. This is what I am checking next.
