Question about Intertherm P3RA-060K Air Conditioner

1 Answer

I have a Intertherm split a/c heat unit. I have water leaking out of the indoor coils into the blower compartment which cause me to replace the blower unit and cap. After cleaning the coils, drain lines and verifying the pan is not cracked or broken it still is leaking into the blower compartment. Almost like it is sucking the water right off the coils. What could be the problem????

I have a sanyo split system and one of the inside units creates ice around the coils. the filters are clean and there's nothing blocking the air around it. What can it be?

There are reasons for.
1. Dusty indoor coil and blower wheel - Clean it.
2. Less speed of blower motor- Replace capacitor/motor
3. Short of gas- Find leak and rectify.

I have a GE BTB736A100A2. Does the dinosaur have an air filter? If so, then where is it? Thanks.

Hi, if this is a package unit, both heat and air all in one, the filter normally is put in a return vent in the ceiling indoors. If you have a split system, outdoor condenser and indoor blower unit, it may be the same, in your ceiling or on a lower wall near the furnace. It may also be inside of the indoor unit either above or below the blower fan. Depending on the sq. footage, you may have up to 2 or 3 return air filters. If you have looked through out the home, and you don't see any grill, it would have to go in the indoor unit if this is a split. The filter is always located on the return side of the unit, the side that draws air back over the indoor coil. If you can find nothing, you may need to buy some filter media at a hardware store, and try and cut a piece to fit where the air flow is being drawn back into the blower compartment, not the supply air coming in, but going back out where the indoor coil is located to catch all of the dust. Just take your time and look for any register that you can feel air being sucked into, and this is where you can put a filter. If you do find the grill and old filter, it will have the size and a arrow on it and it will go in with the arrow going in the direction of flow, you can feel it. I hope this has given you some direction and help.

The inside unit is leaking water

Water leaking in split unit common, due to air filter & evaporator coil dust blocked- Clean it.
Drain pan and drain hose dust blocked-clean it. And also due to less rpm of indoor motor, there will be forming ice over the coil result to water leaking while defrosting.Replace motor capacitor.

The line coming into my indoor unit gets iced up. The ice extends the length of the line out to where in connects to the outside unit.

Icing in door due to 1. Less rpm of indoor fan motor (Replace capacitor or motor). 2. Indoor coil and blower wheel, filter dust blocked. (Service the unit). 3. Short of gas. ( Find for leak and arrest. Then vacumise and do gas charging)

After a few hrs of cooling it began to ice. What's the problem?

Hi I don't know how old the unit is, but what causes the indoor unit to ice up, can be a number of things. The coil or filter up top at the indoor unit being dirty. If the coil is dirty, the blower motor can't blow enough air across the coil and will cause it to ice over. If the coil is dirty, it will need to be cleaned. If not, I would have to say that the unit is low on freon, you have a leak somewhere. You have developed a small leak and this will cause the indoor coil to ice up very quickly. On these split systems, the freon lines are screwed together and not brazed with a torch causing this to be a weak link in the system. The system is under high pressure. Anytime you have 2 freon lines connected together by threaded connections, there is a good chance they will leak over time, or right away if not done properly. I would take a good strong light and remove the cover indoors to check the condition of the coil. If it is clean, and the filter is clean, make sure you have only the fan on and the ice has melted off before you do this, and feel the force of the air coming in from the blower motor. It should be nice and strong. If this all appears to be clean and alright, then I would say you have a leak and you will need to call out a tech to do this type of job. This is all that you can do at this point. If the unit is new, lets say less then 6 months, it should still be under warranty. You would know this. I hope I have been of help to you on this, as I see this everyday. Please don't forget to rate me, and please keep me posted on the outcome. I will be here if you need me.

My unit was'nt cooling the room like it use to and then this morning it was leaking water in the room

Hi, it sounds like the evaporator coil that is located on the inside as built up with ice, and has blocked most of the air flow. What can cause this is a very dirty filter, indoor coil that's iced up, and if the filter and coil are clean, make sure the indoor blower is up to speed. Turn it off and let it defrost. It will take some time. Turn it on fan only. If all is clean and motor is fine and it continues to ice, you are low on freon, and have a small leak causing it to ice up. It is probably a very small leak that may have taken a few years to leak to this point. I would make sure the filter is clean, coil indoors is clean, and blower is up to speed. If this is all good, you will need to get it charged. This unit holds less then 2 pounds of R-22.
Keep me posted on the out come. You can pull the indoor cover and see if you have ice on it. Let me know.

Indoor coils freezing up

You have a low refrigerant (leak) problem or poor airflow due to dirty coils or bad fan motor.
Maybe a combination of all 3.
Check the coils for dirt and lint. Check the fan motor blower wheel for lint on the blades. Check the condensing unit refrrigerant operating pressure. Low side for R22 should be approximately 68 psi, R410 pressure should be approximately 135 psi.

 during Cooling and Dry modes, if the unit is used under conditions of
lower temperature (18C)  the heat-exchanger may freeze, leading to water leakage and other damage.
If the unit is used for long periods under high-humidity conditions, condensation may form on the surface of the indoor
unit, and drip onto the floor or other objects underneath. (About 80% or more)

Increase Temp to 20 and also run coil dry cycle,
