SOURCE: water condensation leaking indoors. how do I

This is easily remedied by taking a wet vac to the outlet of the drain. If the drain has a tee (found at the indoor coil), be sure to cap it off so that all of the suction goes through the drain pan.

Air conditioners wring moisture from the surrounding air that collects in a pan under the cooling coil in the inside unit.

Chances are that the condensate drain is plugged or the drain pan is plugged. Look for a hose that exits the inside unit and runs to a drain. You can follow it back to the drain pan of the A/C unit. If there is water sitting in the pan, then either the hose or pan or both are plugged.

Turn the unit off, get a small bucket and remove the drain tube. Catch the water in the bucket. Blow through the drain line until it's clear. If the thought of doing this is too repulsive, then use an air compressor or even a manual tire pump. Now check the drain pan in the unit for debris and remove as much as possible from the pan and the drain fitting.

Both the pan and drain line should be checked at the beginning of each cooling season.

Reinstall the drain tube and see how it works!

The leakage is probably from condensation and there should be some sort of drain for it. You should check to see if it is clogged or partially clogged. Also since you say it does it when it hasn't operated for a while you may want to check out where the lines pass through the wall and make sure that it is sealed up there so you don't get leakage from out side.

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.

Why does my split ac unit leak inside the house?


This happens when the drain pipe is too high, or kinked. The pipe must be lower then the drain pan in order for the water to drain. This is a common problem.

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!

How do we fix the split unit a/c where water is dripping from the inside unit?


It is possible that there is dirt accumulation if the filters have not been cleaned for a long time making the condensed water to flow out. Also if the indoor unit is fitted with a tilt to the front this can happen as the drain of the collected water flows out. Also the drain tube must not be damaged as it might cause the leak. So remove the front covers and check these problems areas.

Hi, I live in negros, occ, sagay, 2 months ago I paid p5000 for install, poor job, it now leaks badly in balay about .5 liter every 5minutes, how do I open to check for clog or drain, now gel air wants...


Unplug the power, open front cover of your indoor unit. check the level of the unit ( drain port should lower a bit then other end of indoor unit ).If level is bad you need to adjust. Clean all drain bowl, use/insert flexible hose to clean drain line. Pour the clean water on drain bowl to see how good your drain line now. If it is OK, plug the power.
It is easy and you don't need call them again.
