    Thank you for the reply. Compressed air? Is that via a tank or how?

The amount of condensation discharged depends upon the amount of humidity in the air and how long the air condition runs.
If water is leaking then the pipe from the condensate tray is blocked and the water is not draining away.
Remove the drain pipe and clear the blockage then reconnect the pipe, this will fix your problem.

First you need to clear the pipe out using compressed air to blow it out. Bleach will kill the fungus and mold which can help stop it up but usually the dust is what stops it up. Do the bleach once a month. If you can eliminate the 90 degree turns that will help it run clear. The amount of water depends on the humidity of the air.

    What ever you have will have to do. Compressed air in a tank with 60 pounds pressure would surely work. I have used just the pressure I could blow with my mouth and it will work sometimes.

How do you remove front panel on unit?


It is highly likely that the condensate drain line is blocked and water is building up inside the unit. Find the drain line on the outside of the house and clear the blockage in the end of the pipe. The pipe typically just runs onto the ground, but may go into the gutters if the unit is on the roof. Occassionaly the blockage will be inside the indoor unit, but this is rare, so check the outside first.

Ruud achiever 90 plus furnace-water leaks from the drain pipe


This furnace should condense, as long as it goes into the drain. If it is leaking inside the furnace, there may be a seal that needs replacing in either the pvc drain pipe or concentric drain trap needs resealed.

Fujitsu wall mount ac ductless is leaking water from unit. How do i fix it?


This unit - like all A/C units, produces condensatiopn when warm, humid air is passed through the cooling coil. Below the coil is a pan that is designed specifically to catch the condensate (water) droplets, and a drain opening that should have a pipe connected that carries the condensate outside.

You should check outside to make sure the drain pipe is not blocked. Next, check the inside of the indoor portion to make sure there is nothing blocking the drain opening in the pan. It is not unusual for spiders to set up in these cozy areas in the offseason.

You will need to consult the manual (if needed) to learn how to remove the cover for access to the pan. Be sure to unplug the unit / shut off the circuit before beginning any work.

Once you've cleared the line, the condensate should empty outside as it did before. Good luck!

Condensate pipe on baxi105he was frozen i have unblocked however still flashing fault led and not working


My Baxi also developed this issue about 1 hour ago. I have about 4m of pipe outside and the blockage is in there.
Inside the bolier on the right I have a clear chamber where the water gathers. Is this still full on yours? If so your blockage is not clear. If it is clear I reset my boiler by using the left most dial and turning it anticlockwise past water/radiator for 5 secs. Should fire up if all is |OK

Water leaks in the house from under the unit.There is a drain pipe that leads to the outside but we dont know if that pipe gets clogged or needs service.


Open up the inside unit pannel where the drain pipe is and you'll see a drain pan where the condensation water runs out to the drain , clean the drain pan and the hole and then with air pressure from an air compressor blow the drain from inside to outside and go outside the house where the drain discharged and you'll see the clogh that came out from the drain . To keep the drain clean , pour a cup of bleach or clorox every 3 or 4 months through the drain and in the drain pan.

We have RUUD AC, in second floor , that has a white pvc ope connected to condensate drain. other end of this pipe is inerted into large pipe neanr wall. looks a drain outlet. In the middle of this white...


Hello, W/D here.

There are a couple of things you need to check:
Look at where the drain connects to the A/C unit. There should be another pvc line right next to where the drain connects. This is the clean out/flush line, and is used for adding algeside to the tray internally, which thens go out the drain. Most importantly, there is a 1/8" hole between them, and usually, it's very hard to see. Make sure that this hole is open. If it is plugged, the condensate cannot drain from the unit while the unit is running and will create havoc with your drain system. The 'tee in the drain line is an air vent/vacuum breaker and can be used for a cleanout, but try the little vent hole trick first. Your drain line from the unit should be sloped to your house drain. If you do not have a clean out connection at your unit, then you can clean from the tee to the wall. Put one cup of white vinegar into the tee. It will work as well as bleach, without the corrosiveness of the bleach. If you have a cleanout on the unit, put the vinegar in there, and restart the unit, as the vinegar needs to get flushed by the condensate.
Your tray is designed to catch any leakage, and should drain to the outside. Look for your drain line and clear it. Tray drains generally plug at the ends, and not usually in the middle. You can clean the pan drain with a piece of stiff wire. I like to use electrical solid core wire, #12. Pass it dowh the drain from the pan, and back up the drain from the outside. Chase it with water. Usually the pluggage is either insulation, or dirt dobbers.
Best wishes and regards, W/D

Air conditioner leaking


Hi, There are no pipes, just passage ways on a window unit. It probably needs cleaned. Window units naturally create water in the evaporator area. The water is suppose to drain to the back of the unit through passage ways to the condensing area where the slinger ring on the condenser fan blade slings it into the condenser coil making it more efficient. There is usually a drain hole to drain excess water from the back of the unit. Any dirt or algae in the pathway of this water or the wrong tilt will cause water to build up and drip or blow out the front. Anything touching the evaporator coil allowing water to run down the obstacle into the wrong area will cause the same thing. reduced air flow will cause the evap to freeze which could also cause a water problem. Since the tilt is right and it doesn't seem to be freezing, Maybe a temporary increase in tilt and a dropper of bleach at the base of the evaporator would do it. This will kill the algae and may unblock the water flow. NOTE: It may also cause stains on a carpet or floor if the bleach water drips onto it. If you want to pull it out and clean it, most units can be pulled out of the housing and sprayed with a water hose but you need to be careful not to get water in the electrical parts of the unit. They can be covered with plastic or foil. Make sure you unplug the unit before trying to remove it. You may have to remove some screws to remove it from the housing. Hope this has helped. kstfas
