SOURCE: external water tank

Dear ziba1--posted the same problem two days ago and it doesn't appear to be on the site yet. Anyway, picked away at this again today (literally took the machine apart) and found the problem to be a clog in the drainage system. This explains why your external tank will not fill and why there is a leak--the drip tray under the compressor is not draining due to the clog in the drainage system. I fixed this simply by taking a narrow device and gently scraping out the drain hole of the drip tray (which is located just below the compressor...the compressor is located on the same side as your air filter). After successfully cleaning out this drain, I proceeded to flush the water out thoroughly with water. Give it a try--worked for me. I had all but given up and had already set up an appointment to have it serviced. Cheers

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: condensate blowing thru discharge vents on high

The water has to be draining out constantly or the pan and finally the unit will overflow.

If it has age on it take out and take to car wash and wash inside and outside coils. Remove tops on coils so you can see whats going on while washing.

Try a lower fan speed, sometimes the velocity of the fan combined with high humidity lifts the moisture off the fins instead of allowing the water to properly drop to the pan.

Hello, some window units do not use a drain tube instead they use the condenser fan blade to scoop the condensate from the bottum of the base pan and splash the condenser coil to keep the condenser cool and also evaporate the condensate. Most of the time you can hear a "swishing sound"

I have a Maytag window unit and i am trying to find out how many btu is has. right now it is in a small room and i want to know if it will work in a bigger size room. MODEL M6Q1OF2A SERIAL CR 264327...


that is a 10000 btu unit and a good rule of thumb to go by when 'sizing' a unit is 12000 btu for every 600 sq ft of cooling space (if the place is well insulated) or 400 sq ft (if not well insulated).
So, you have a 10000 btu unit which is 5/6th of 12000 btu - so - can reasonably expect that unit to cool approximately 500 sq feet.
In other words the room it's in now could be only - say - 300 sq feet (and well insulated) - in which case the AC unit is cooling it - well.
However, if you try to cool a 800 sq ft room - it will not work as well.
Hope this has helped.

Normal cool temp 23 to 25 and heat mode 29 to 31. And regrading defrosting your pipelines no need any tray. You can insulate with Armaflex tube which is mostly used for best insulation. Hope there won't be further water leak.

Our Ice machine is not working. It does not fill up with water to make the ice. Is the line frozen, how can we verify which line it is?


there is a small pump at the back of your unit. It is not pumping the water from your fill line into the ice tray. Use the model and serial numbers on your unit and purchase a new pump from an appliance repair store. Approximate cost is $10.00 and takes about 30 minutes to replace. Its an easy do-it yourself job. Your fill line will be attached to the base of the pump. Remove the fill line and the dispense line and the 2 screws holding the pump in place. Install new unit, replace screws and hoses turn water on and you are done.

10000 gal pump


as with any pool pump they have to prime themselves,, close up the unit as it was before,, and turn it on,, remember that water is also the cooling agent for these pumps, check to see that its pumping water as before,, ( yours may even have a place to prime it,, Look for an easy access prime hole in the pump unit itself )

My fujitronic is leaking water. Any solution?


hi friend,

Instructions
  1. Step 1 Pull the air conditioner from the window on a mild, sunny spring day. The sun shine will help in rapidly drying out the air conditioner after you perform the next routine process.
  2. Step 2 Place the air unit on a firm surface. Preferably a concrete slab or a few old boards. Do not place the unit on grass or dirt.
  3. Step 3 Use the screwdriver and remove the outer metal housing of the air conditioner. There are generally 4 to 6 screws along the lower edge of the cover that holds it to the frame.
  4. Step 4 Observe the inside of the air unit. Note that there is a plastic drain tray on the bottom. This drain tray carries away the condensation water from the cooling coil and allows it to flow to the outdoors and drip to the ground. The drain tray is plugged from last seasons collection of dust and bacteria growth.
  5. Step 5 Use the cup measure and pour some house bleach into the plastic tray. Allow the bleach to "work" on the nasty solids that have collected there for about 5 to 10 minutes.
  6. Step 6 Connect the gardenmag-glass_10x10.gif hose to the outdoor spigot and attach the spray nozzle to the hose.
  7. Step 7 Spray in the interior of the air unit with the moderate pressure from the spray nozzle. Force the water into the plastic drain tray and remove all of the solid debris that is laying there. Spray the interior and exterior coils as well since you have the unit cover off. You will have to remove the interior filter as well. Clean the filter while it is exposed.
  8. Step 8 Place another cup of bleach into the plastic drain tray and allow the liquid cleaner to set for about 5 to 10 minutes than thoroughly rinse the unit with fresh water. The inside area should be thoroughly clean.
  9. Step 9 Allow the unit to completely dry in the sun. When dry, replace the exterior cover and place the unit back into the window. The unit will be cured of leaking for another cooling season.
Tips & Warnings
  • Weekly cleanings of the interior filter will help in alleviating bacteria build up in the drain tray. Living in an outdoor dusty environment may create the need to perform the bleach cleaning more than just once a year
thank u for using fixya

U-LINE BCM95 NOT CYCLING


These units take a full cycle to get to the fill cycle, so you won't get ice on the first cyle unless you manually fill the tray when you first power it on. You may have some air in the water line and need to cycle a few times to fully bleed the air out. Also check the water inlet for debris in the filter screen using a small brass brush, then bleed out air -with water on- while tightening back hose connection avoiding need to bleed while cycling.

GE UNIT - AC/HEAT PUMP


Hello Cheryl, what they are talking about is a drain. As air conditioners run they collect moisture from the air on the evap(in cooling mode) or condenser ( in heat mode). This moisture will run off the part and flow into the tray. In the cooling mode, the moisture is slung onto the condenser to help cool it down, thus be more effective. I always recommend once a year remove the unit and clean all the coils and oil the fan motor. Household oil will work for this. During this cleaning find and clean out the drain. If it gets clogged that water can run back into the home. The PC pipe is sometimes attached to the unit to direct the water to a designated place. These units are common in hotels and they use the pipe to keep the water from dripping on the guest as they walk under the windows. Hope this helps.
