Have model number FV4BNB006 air handler and condensate is not running down the coils and into the drip pan. It is falling directly on to the filter and into the air box creating a large water issue.

Be sure the unit is tilted slightly to the rear and that the back drain
is clear. Also the floor of the unit should be clear of sludge,etc.
so the water can drain from front to rear and out the drain.

My Bryant air handler with V coil is dripping condensation outside of drain pan and onto my return plenum. I have to keep a bowl to collect the condensation. Pan not clogged and refrigerant ok. Con


Either the coil pan is cracked, or the coils are not set properly. if coil pan is cracked, you have two options, Replace the coil, or get a condensate pump. The condesate pump is a temporary fix because some water would stay in the secondary pan and eventually rust it out, causing damage to whatever is below it, which is usually your ceiling.

No 24 v to contactor


The thermostat is the device that determines when the A/C unit starts up. It will require a 24v source (transformer most likely in the air handler) to provide power for the control. If the 24V is present, and the t-stat is calling for cooling, then there is probably a safety device preventing it from starting.

One such common safety device is a water level or "float" switch that detects water level in the pan under the air handler. These are most often found in homes that have the air handler in the attic space. Normally, these pans a dry or have a a few dropsof watrer in them. Condensate is created when warm, humid air is passed over a cold coil. It is collected and routed outside. If there is a problem getting the condensate down the drain pipe in the air handler, it will drip out of it onto the attic floor. This is why a shallow pan is installed under the air handler. The pan will collect the condensate and is piped outside and down to the ground. If the pipe has become clogged - preventing draining - the water would overflow the pan and ruin the ceiling in the space directly below. The float switch prevents the signal from the thermostat from turning on until the water has drained to a safe level.

Check the pan - if it is empty, the switch may have been distrubed and actuated - even though there is no water in the pan. Operated the switch to make sure it can move freely. There may be other safety devices inline like the float switch. You'll need to follow the circuit and find where it is being interrupted in order to make the repair / correction.

I hope this helps & good luck!

My drain pan is leaking


You need to access the evaporator coil on the inside of your air handler and unplug the drain for the condensate. It should be the 3/4 inch line, if the 1/2 inch line is capped then it is not doing anything and has probably been abandoned.Open up the unit and clean the drip pan and drain hole where the 3/4 line starts. This should clear up your water leak problem.

Water leak due to dust block in air filter,cooling coil,drain pan and blower wheel.

I have a Intertherm Heat Pump system in my Manufactured Home, Model # E2EB-015HB; Serial # E2E0121006692. Condensation is forming on the Coils and the water fills up the area under the coils, drips down...


There is a drip pan bit the middle is open to allow air flow through the coil and into your ducting. If the drain for the drip pan is clogged it will fill up and overflow onto your furnace and then to the floor.If that is what is happening then clean out the drain tube running down the front of the furnace and it should empty the drip pan and solve your problem.

You also need to have your furnace checked for water damage in the electrical components, if these have gotten wet then you run the risk of a fire. Please consider calling an expert in your area to inspect your furnace and make sure the drain line is clear.

Were is the reset button on the unit?


Hi, here is the theory on the reset button on Air Conditioners. They reset via the breaker panel box in your house. Check that first before anything else. However if your unit is popping breakers, it is because the rating for the breaker is incorrect, or there is something that needs servicing usually in the outside unit called the condenser. That piece contains the compressor. A faulty compressor and pop the breaker. Or If the condenser fan that blows over the coils of the outside unit stops (common failure) The compressor will overheat and shut down. That may not trip the breaker but the house will get hot anyway. Usual action for this is to replace the condenser fan motor and starting capacitor. Make sure the speed rating and directional rotation for the replacement motor is the same as the motor removed.
There are other reasons why the system won't come one fully. If the wall thermostat is digital and does nothing. including turning on the fan. There will be a small fuse located on the circuit board of the air handler (part of Air Conditioner mounted inside the house. It houses the circulation fan). That fuse could be blown. That one shuts down just about everything.
On air handlers mounted up into the attic crawl space there is an overflow pan. This pan is mounted directly below the air handler. This pan can fill with water when the drain pain contained inside the air handler starts to overflow because the drain system to that is clogged.
There is a "float switch" mounted in the overflow pan wired to the system in such as way as to shut down the entire AC system if that pan fills.
The handling is to clear the obstruction in the Drip Pan inside the air handler. Then remove enough water from the overflow pan and the AC will run as though nothing has happened.
If you have more questions, write to me on this site.
One thing more. The capacitor alone in the Outside condenser unit can fail and that will stop the condenser completely if it is of a "split" design and used for both the compressor and fan. When replacing this unit alone, ALWAYS find the same specification part.
I hope this helps,
Have a Happy New Year,
Mark

Vertical to horizontal


most all airhandlers have a second pan included . if not they can usually be purchased with directions to mount to the side of the coil for horizontal right or horizontal left application. remove the front panel and take a flash light look inside and you should see a cookie sheet looking pan on one side of the coil usually on the right side coil can usually be removed and reinstalled with the top of the coil facing the filter or the blower depending on how you want the air to go . just be sure the pan is under the coil and you will be ok . i have actually seen pros install them with the pan above the coil! and of course they flood the place. water of course goes down hill. the square donut pan used for vertical install stays in place as found. you will need to install a second emergency pan to catch any backup drips especially if you put it in an attic. you should find them at a sheet metal shop and they are basically a pan even bigger than the airhandler that catches any drip. it should be connected to a drain to the outside also and a float switch installed in case it fails to shut off the ac. better to get a no cool call than a flooded house call. try to put the second drain out over a door or window where it will be noticed before damage. good luck and remember you will have to relocate ductwork, electric drains filters refrigerant lines and if its in an attic a decked service area and a light and an outlet are required here in fla. good luckagain.
