The drain line is stopped up somewhere. If it runs into the ground then it's stopped up there. Dig it up or remove the line in the ground and clear it out. You can use compressed air or just blow on it to try to clear it. Add bleach to kill any mold and mildew that might stop it up.

My ac window units are not draining water and creating mold in my house


Check the drain tube between the evaporator side to the back of the unit. It may have a packing plug installed. If there is one remove it or clean the drain tube.

My breezair is constantly draining water in the drain tube


That's what airconditioners do the remove heat and in the process they end up producing some condensation which needs to drain through the drain tube in order to keep the Air conditioner from flooding itself, PLEASE NOTE: The hotter the weather the more drainage you will notice.

Thumbs Up if helpful, Feedback is Appreciated!!!

Where is the drain hole on goldstar window ac my ac keeps dripping water inside the house


Hello, make sure the unit is tilted toward the outside a bit, if it is level the condensate will collect in the front and start dripping inside the house. Also, if the unit has a drain make sure it is clean so the water can drain out properly.

Water leaking out of hose on a fujitysu split system ast24rga


Normally, an Air Conditioner removes water from the air and that water condenses on the coils of the inside section that does the cooling. The water condenses on the cooling coils just like moisture condenses on the outside of a glass of ice water.
This excess water drains out of the cooling section through a "drip tube" and is supposed to drain outside of the house, or a drainage system. Your "drip tube" has either not been installed (if it is a brand new installation), has separated and water is now dripping into the house instead of outside of it. Or it is clogged. This happens when algae builds up inside the "drip pan". If that is the case, you can purchase "algaecide" tablets which kill the algae that is clogging the drip pan and preventing water from draining out through the drip tube. These tablets can be found in many hardware stores, refrigeration supply companies, or even Walmart. You can put a tablet inside the pan. (You will have to remove the cover of the unit). You can often use a little bit of Bleach and that will act as an algaecide. Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

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).

Is it normal for a car to drip water on the ground after running the air conditioner?


Yes, The air conditioner evaporator core inside the vehicle is very cold when the a/c is operating and moisture will condense on the outside of it, especially on a humid day. This moisture then trickles down the sides of the core and collects in the plastic housing beneath the core where it then escapes through the evaporator housing drain tube and drips on the ground beneath the passenger side of the chassis. The more humidity in the air the more moisture you will see dripping onto the ground. If the little drip hose should ever get plugged up this water then will overflow the housing and drip on the passenger side carpet so if you ever have that problem you'll know what the cause is.

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.

Ice maker leaking inside freezer compartment, water dripping down from unit


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.
The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

If you are running it in the cooling function, your drain maybe backed up. Find your drain outside if you can and suck it with a shop vac.

Sidewinder, sounds like it's leaking from the pump gasket or the water seal assy on the impeller. Check the locking ring to the pump housing and see if you can increse the pressure to the tub.
