Air conditioners condensate ( create water ) in normal operating conditions, so you could assume that nothing is WRONG.
but there should be tubing or drain lines on air conditioning units that run off the excess water, and dirt / lint dust may have the water drain lines clogged , and youd need to clear the lines to allow the water to escape to where it is intended to go

HOW DO I GET THE WATER TO DRAIN?


Sounds like your drain needs a strap. Does all the water drain out as soon as the unit turns off?

My AC unit leaks water inside


Isidro, If it's a window unit you will need to tilt it up from the inside. Thank you and please leave me feedback. Clean around the bottom of any debris so it can drain on the outside.

Leaking under neath heating unit but it's not the hose but a little white knob underneath unit


ac drain . There could be a blockage in the AC drain pipe that runs under the car. This can usually be unblocked with compressed air they jack up vehicle takes 30 seconds to fix with vehicle hoist.
When it blocks up the AC unit builds up with water and leaks clear water inside the car. if it was green water it would be the heater core leaking coolant.

Where is the drain hole on goldstar window ac my ac keeps dripping water inside the house


Hello, make sure the unit is tilted toward the outside a bit, if it is level the condensate will collect in the front and start dripping inside the house. Also, if the unit has a drain make sure it is clean so the water can drain out properly.

I have a goodman airconditioning unit, I have my AC set on 75 inside. the unit gives excess water outside the unit and floods my yard..is this normal? any fix?


your unit shouldnt flood your yard .. now check your unit to see where your drain from your unit ( inside)is going .. if that is going outside where your unit is then there is where your water is coming from..

Hello.
You need to clean out the drain pan.Also unit shold be tilted back a little so water will run outside.

Remove the front grill and using an old tooth brush clean out the bottom pan where water is laying.Also be sure the drian hole outside the unit is clear.

We have a rinnai tankless water heater in a builing with 36 apartments and the tenants have been complaining of cold showers. what do we need to do to get hot water all the time for our tenants?


It will take a good plumber to calculate that, and he/she will need info like size of water line entering the building, size and material of hot water lines to apartments, number of baths in each unit, size and capacity rating of current water heater, and maybe more. Chances are that the water heater isn't big enough to keep up with demand, especially in cold weather.

The water that drains from the airconditioner to outsied is clogged up and not draining how can i unclogg it myself?


I can tell you a few stories of my own - I've had this problem myself and water will eventually build up and leak inside your house - you don't want it to leak on your electrical outlet ! I do not know how long you had this unit or how old is it, but these things can happen over time due to dirt, dust or other foreign objects or rust. Some AC units have fan spinning and picking up the water and spraying it on evaporators, most of it should be evaporated - only excess humidity will cause dripping - on older models water should drip outside through an opening or two at the back of the AC unit.

Make sure your AC is not level, and is tilted about 20 degrees outside, allowing the water to flow outside the AC unit.

You will need to find a way to access your AC unit from outside, locate the areas where the water drips normally, you should see openings, using an object (paper clip, pipe cleaner, etc.) try to insert it in the holes back and forth until you dislodge whatever is blocking the hole - be careful not to damage the very deliate fins at the back of your AC.

if still no water drips then take a ladder and climb up and you shuold be able to see from the inside there should be a slope or container where water accumulates before dripping out, is there ANY water there ? If you mostly see water farther away then your AC is probably not tilted enough to allow water to flow out.

If there is neither any water towards the outer edge where it drips, nor inside, farther away nor dripping inside your home, then it is probably being all evaporated or your humidity level is under control. The more your air has moisture the more water will be produced inside your AC, any excess moisture will accumulate inside your AC - if your AC manages to evaporate all of it, and no leaks inside, good for you, I wouldn't touch it.

Another tip - when you shut down your AC, do you hear swishing and unusual sounds of water ? that could mean accumulated water not being evacuated - Although it IS normal for some stagnant water to remain in your AC - do not worry about that, as long as it doesn't leak inside.

Have a ge ac in window unit asto5 model leaks inside just recently . connot find any plug to pull for draining outside excess water inside ac cabnit . does it have one? been running this ac all summer and...


No drain plug but this model should have a SLINGER RING AROUND the end of the fan blades which picks up the water & sling it on the back coil which it is so hot & evaporates to help get rid of excess water .. So as for the water running inside, the drain channel are plugging up, from the front coil to the back, & only need to add clorox bleach to the front coil area for now , to kill the slime or mold slowly blocking the channels..But first, TURN_OFF UNIT! (certain times of the year, mold & slime grows rapidily and thats what the bleach for..!

Water in the Unit


Most of the AC Unit lately are not made to drain. So when you have water collecting inside the unit, the condenser and the evaporator is suppose to help dissolve the water.
When water is collecting inside the appliance like that, it is either because the ac unit is not installed correctly or you live in a high humid area.
