1st glance would tell me it might need freon. However you stated you had condensation leaking into the basement. Check to see if the insulated line in the basement is iced over. If it is iced over, the next thing to check is the air filter, then the blower motor.

How to raise the value of a home with a basement by a good percentage


If you are trying to sell a house with a basement and want to include rooms in the basement in the advertising their must be a way to exit the house from the basement. for a few thousand dollars now you can add the rooms and raise the value significantly. Egressed windows are windows in a basement large enough to qualify as an exit. You will have to call a concrete cutting contractor and have him cut out the window size. then install the window. now instead of your add saying a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with a basement. You can say a 2 leve, 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom house!

Our central AC has severe leaking ( condensation)...what to do ?


Every airconditioner will create condensation that needs to drain. Your condensation is not going where it is supposed to, probably because the drain is plugged. Find the cooling coils (they might be in the basement, but are probably in the attic) they will be right next to the fan. There will be a pan or tray under the coils and there will be some kind of small diameter pipe or hose that should go to a sewer inlet, or might possibly go outside. You might possibly have a small collecting tank with a pump that will be operated by a float switch. Lots of possiblities, but it is likely going to be obvious once you find the drain hose.
Good luck.

My dehumidifier runs but no water will collect in the bucket. I ahve tried increasing the percentage. My basement is plenty damp!! Model504EL


Mine had the same problem: ran, sounded great, no water. Feel the coils. Mine never cooled down - stayed at room temp. No refridgerant left in the coils. It's a gas and can leak out. Expensive to recharge. Get a new one.

Hi,
If the compressor is running then you either have a leak or the compressor failed internally..my guess would be that you developed a freon leak....

Water leaking from freezer


Check for a blocked defrost drain. Take the panel off at the back of the freezer section and find the small hole at the very bottom center below the cooling coils. Use hot (but not boiling) water and a turkey baster to flush it out until water runs through it. (it will go into the defrost drain pan, where it will evaporate)
This will prevent water from comming out the freezer door and leaking onto your floor and running down your copper pipe to the basement.

Rudd heatpump doesn't cool


Hi, Is the condenser fan running? If not, Check the circuit breaker inside the house and the quick disconnect at the condensing unit. Making sure the power is off, check for any bugs in the contactor. If it is running, check to see if there are any resets on a high pressure switch or control board in the condenser. Check the compressor capacitors and see if they are leaking oil or swelled up. are there any burned wires? Is the compressor hot? If the fan is running and the compressor is not hot it is probably off on Low Pressure and needs charged by a licensed Air Cond Tech. Hope I have helped. Let me know. kstfas
