True back bar freezing up


Most models have a metal drip collector below the evaporator that has a drain hole in it where the defrosted water goes into before it goes down to the drip trap and then out the drain hose. If the area around the drain hole has cracks, or was punctured during servicing, the drain water can get underneath the tray and run out beside and around the drip tray and never gets into the drain tube and freeze in that location. A careful inspection of this area will reveal any issues.

Plugged ac evaporator drain hose 2004 mitsibishi endever


I take it that condensate from the evaporator is leaking inside on the floor. Could be the drain tube is partially clogged. It is usually located on the fire-wall or down towards the floor pan under the car. It is usually close to where the A/C lines go thru the fire-wall. About 1/2 inch diameter sticking straight out but may have a 90 degree elbow pointing down.
Also, it's been extra hot and humid all over and moisture could be freezing inside the unit when on MAX A/C, then suddenly melting when switched to normal. This opens the outside air door and allows warm/hot air into the unit instead of recirculating the cold air inside the car. The drain may not be able to handle a large, sudden quantity of water.
Perform a "driveway" test. Open the hood, start engine and run the A/C on normal with the windows or doors open. Locate the drain tube by looking for water dripping. Once located twist 2 or 3 pipe cleaners together and verify the tube is clean. Then close the doors/windows and switch to MAX A/C. Check for water dripping. If it stops dripping, water is freezing inside and now you know why!

Lots of water in my driver side floor board, where is this coming from? 2007 Jeep Wrangler


Your air conditioner evaporator core drain is most likely plugged up. This small drain is located down low on the engine side of the firewall on the passenger side. Usually it's a little rubber or plastic hose that points out or down and is about 3/8" in diameter and a couple of inches long. It gets plugged up with dust and crud and causes the water that condenses on the evaporator core to fill up, overflow, and drip on the floor from the heater & a/c housing ductwork. Usually a puff of air will clear the clog although sometimes you may need to clean it a couple of times until all the crud comes out. Once the drain is clear and the a/c is running then you should see water dripping out of it after a few minutes of operation on a humid day. Not hard to fix but the drain can be hard to find. Hope this helps you fix your problem!

I have water on my passenger side floor board is this a ac leak and how can i fix this myself.2001 dodge 2500 diesel


There is a drain for the a/c evaporator core is down low on the engine side of the fire wall on the passenger side. Usually it's a very short open ended rubber tube that's a couple of inches long. It gets plugged up with dust and crud. Once the drain is plugged the condensation that occurs on the evaporator coil builds up and overflows out of the HVAC housing and drips on the floor. I just use a gentle puff of shop air to blow the tube clean. If there's a lot of crud in the housing it may plug up again after a while but usually the tube will get washed clean when the a/c runs again. Hardest part is often just finding where the drain is hidden. If you're having trouble finding it and have a friend or neighbor with a similar pickup it's sometimes easiest to watch where the water is dripping out of his and backtrack it up to the drain. Good luck, hope this helps!

Water is collecting on the floor of my 96 grand cherokee


If it is on the passenger side and only when a/c is on then you have a plugged drain tube on the evaporator housing. Locate the housing under the hood, passenger side - mounted on the firewall. This is the housing where the a/c lines enter the cab. On the bottom of this housing there will be a rubber tube that is to carry away the condensation from the evaporator core to the outside. (Ever see water dripping under the car on the passenger side when the a/c is running? This is from the drain tube.) Sometimes the tube is hard to see without raising the car in the air. Only do this if it can be done SAFELY. DO NOT get under the car with it only on a jack! Locate the drain tube and clear of any obstruction (usually mud).

I have a Weather King AC/Furnace in the attic that's dripping water into the drain pan. When we purchased our new house it came with this unit and it never dripped ater. Now, the water is dripping towards...


I assume it is dripping water when the AC is running. If you look at the attic unit, there should be a PVC pipe running from the unit - probably an insulated PVC pipe. This pipe probably goes across the attic to the edge of the house and drains outside. The drain pan may also have a drain pipe, but the one on the AC unit is the issue, and is probably plugged. Go outside and see if you can locate the AC drain pipe. See if the ground is wet below the pipe and if water is steadily dripping from the pipe (with AC running). If the pipe and ground are dry, the pipe is plugged. If you have a wet/dry vac, try connecting it to the drain pipe outside to see if you can **** the pluggage out. If you can get it clear, water should start dripping out of the pipe. This same thing happened at our house. I decided to cut the pipe in the attic, and add in a PVC isolation valve, tee, and water hose connection with plug, so I can valve out the AC unit from the pipe, remove hose connection plug, and hook up a water hose and flush the line to outside. Lowe's sells all of the PVC pipe fittings. The water pressure from the hose will always flush out the algae and crud to the outside of the house. I can also remove the plug and pour a cup of bleach down the drain pipe every couple of months to keep algae growth in check. I also cut out the trap (u-leg) from pipe in the attic and purchased a ready made trap a Lowes (the contractor who built our house had made a lousy homemade trap). I purchased a few PVC elbows and installed the trap on the drain pipe outside. By the way, our AC drain pipe comes out of our wall outside and drains near our outside unit. Our secondary drain pan drain pipe comes out outside from an eave on the side of the house. I don't know what you drain line looks like (it may have a port to add bleach, or some cleanout provisions, maybe not). If you choose to modify/improve it, then make a sketch of it, go to Lowe's and get the PVC parts you need + PVC pipe primer and cement. PVC cement dries fast. Remember, the pipe must flow downhill from you AC attic unit. You can use a regular wood saw to cut the pipe. I hope this helps you. You need to keep the drain line clear as algae will continue to grow in it. Pouring bleach in the line every month or two helps. You also need to check maybe once a month that the line is draining properly (check to see if dripping outside). You can get some serious water damage to your ceilings if the water backs up and overflows. I discovered that our drain line was plugged just in time as our drain pan drain line was also partially plugged and drain pan was about to overflow.

Too much water condensation


Check your condensate drain. It could be plugged. Or perhaps you have a crack in the drain pan.

Drain pan leaking?


there is a drip pan located underneath you ref but most likely your prob is a plugged drain line coming from the freezer. when you ref goes into automatic def the water doesnt run out into the drip pan but instead onto your floor..

you can clean the drain line by removing the rear cover in the freezer compartment and using hot water to thaw the drain below the evap coil.
