I hear about this problem a lot. The most likely cause is that the unit isn't tipped toward the outside of the building and/or the drain holes in the pan are plugged. Also, it's important to keep an A/C unit clean. It should be cleaned at least annually to ensure that the pan isn't dirty, the coils are clean, and that the fans and filters aren't caked up.

It is leaking

The drain line located in the back of the freezer section has clogged. Some drain lines are located on the outside of unit. If drain line is outside of unit, disconnect line, use a shop vac and place it over the connector and suck out debris. Then blow out the drain line, then connect drain line. If drain line is not visible on the outside of unit and there is no visible drain inside of freezer,, remover all food from freezer, remove the back wall in freezer section. You should see a drain in the middle, back of the freezer, Use sop vac and remove debris. If you don't have a shop vac, you can use a long straw, wrap tape around end to make a tight fit and blow out the debris.

Where is the drain pipe on my a/c? Ruud #UBHC-21J11SFC. Do I have to take something apart? The pan under unit fills up and overflows. It is leaking through the ceiling under the unit. I am a woman. ...

The drain or drain piping (usually PVC piping) is under or on the edge of the drain pan, under the unit. It has to exit outside some where. Either down thru the wall into the crawl space and out thru the foundation wall. Or thru the attic to a gutter outside on the edge of the soffett. Look for white PVC piping outside the house where I indicated. Then you can use a garden hose and high pressure to unclog it from at it's termination point, by back flushing it.

Hope this helps you. Please let me know. Thanks

BTU is leaking water from the inside.

Take the cover off the inside unit and look for the drip pan under the evaporator coil. It should have either one drain in the middle of the pan or a series of smaller drains along the back of the pan. The drain(s) is probably clogged up and causing the pan to overflow into your home. Also check the drain line on the outside wall where the refrigerant lines come through the wall for a blockage.

Wall a/c is leaking water down log wall and puddling on floor.

When you sealed the holes outside, you trapped the water inside. The unit is designed to let the water run to the bottom of the pan and then go out the holes outside. Try unplugging one of them and see if that fixes the problem. Hope this helps.
