Question about Samsung Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a model AW189CB samsung widow air conditioner. Its 4 yrs old. I keep the filter clean but for some reason but for some reason water is now dripping out the front of it. It has the slope needed to drain outside. I have never had a problem with it untill recently. I took the front cover off and there was lots of condesation on the front copper piping and the plastic tray below it was full and dripping out the front. Any ideas? Thank you David Lewey

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.

unless its been abused ie coils not cleaned, coil damage, or compressor bad its worth repairing. should get another 5 to 8 years out of it.

Ductless split LG LS240CP keeps cycling on and off every 3 minutes without reaching room temperature

Any number of reasons. Low freon pressure is one. Dirty filter (wash with plain water) obstructions causing airflow problems. Don't confuse temp on remote with temp on face of unit. LG in the Philippines means "el gigawa" translation: fixalot! I owned 5 LG products all repaired multiple times. Now replaced with Samsung. If the unit is old, replace with Samsung $3000 or less but worth it.

Have at home a Samsung Split system AQ24B1QE approx 11 yrs old, leakes water from top, tried cleanig coil and filter still doing the same thing.

Water leak: It's because of non-maintained air conditioner. Clean airfilter, indoor coil, blower wheel and also drain pan. Insulate freon pipelinesproperly and tightly. After that run the a/c. If still water dripping. Checkindoor f.motor speed. If less replace capacitor. If f.m. is o.k, check gaspressure. If less, there will be ice formation over the coil and water drippingwill be there when it melting. If short of gas, check for leak andrectify. Thanks. Helpful?

I would not advise using bleach. I would disconnect the pipe from both ends and blow down it, either by mouth or air gun to ensure of no blockages. You should poor away at least 10 cups of water after changing filter to ensure clean fresh water.

When I keep my air condition on auto and it has ran then turns off when the temp. is reached it has began leaking

your unit needs cleaning.

when fan is running, it creates a vacuum that hold the water from spilling from your unit, then at auto, as the temperature is reached, the fan would stop and the vacuum that keeps the water from spilling would disappear and starts to leak water.

have ti clean....

that would eliminate your problem..

tnx 4 using fixya,
