Question about Fedders A6P09S2A Air Conditioner

1 Answer

LEAKING WATER I have 2 of the same units. One works fine. The other, after 15 minutes of cooling, the top reservoir fills, and leaks onto the floor. The plastic reservoir has no drain, or hole to allow the condensation to collect into the bottom reservoir. Any ideas???

Brand New 2 weeks old 4 ton Trane compressor leaks a lot of water onto pad


If the unit is running in cold weather than there is ice building up on the coils located outside. This is normal in that the unit is running in heat pump mode heating inside and cooling outside, After the unit detects the ice build up it briefly reverses the cycle heating the outside coils melting(defrosting) the ice which you observe as water on the pad.

The video gives you an example of the defrost cycle!

My air conditioner's bucket is overflowing with water and leaking all through the ceiling onto our floor, ruining the paint on the walls. Any solutions?


I assume you have a unit in the attic as described condensate leaking from ceiling and down the walls etc.
What is not normal is a bucket to contain the condensate, there should be 2 lines a primary from the evap coil and a secondary preferably from a secondary drain pan resting underneath your unit. A bucket will never work in this capacity.

Water leaking from beneath unit. Some water enter buckets some leaking onto floor. Can't use the unit it leaks so much.


Look for the drain tube which sends the water to the buckets. It may be disconnected or misaligned allowing the water to go the wrong way. The tube can also be stopped up. Blow through it to clear.

Has water leaking out of the back of the system?? Is it suppose to have a drain hose to it??


It has to have some way to get rid of condensation. There should be a hose fitting or nipple located on it somewhere.

My amcor air conditioner is leaking water all over the floor. I drain it and it will only last less then 24 hours till it turns off, leaks all over an needs to be drained. Help!


I figured out the problem. My Amcor portable started leaking after the fill light came on for the first time in years. After doing some research I saw that it uses the water to cool some other part of the system to evaporate out the exhaust. So I took the ******* apart and messed with things. Finally I started pouring water into different trays and noticed it would not drain down from the top tray even when running. So I removed the top part and found the drain hole. Blasted that sum ***** with some compressed air and WAMMO it works again.

My unit is leaking tons of water only when a/c is on for a while. It leaks out of base and I have to drain tank every day. Help!!!


It is supposed to "leak" water into it's reservoir and it needs to be dumped when it gets full. That water is the humidity that the a/c is pulling form the air inside your home. As long as it's going into the reservoir and not leaking onto your floor then it is working properly.

Air Conditioner 3 in 1 danby SPAC12030 leaking water on the floor. No water in right side compartiment also no water in the back reservoir. Water leak from right side of the machine. From the right side...


I had that problem last year. When I took it apart I found that the drainage hoses that lead to the reservoirs were plugged with dust build up. I clean out the hoses as well as the rest of the insides. I have since placed the entire unit inside a shallow (under bed) style rubermaid tote and have not had any more water leaking. Hope that helps you.

Soleus LX-140 leaking problem


We have a 1-year PE3-09R-03 that just started dripping water on the floor. The red "tank full" light never came on. I opened it up to investigate, and I believe the problems are caused by dust. The plastic float that trips the "tank full" switch appears to have gotten stuck due to the combination of water and dust in the tray. Once I loosened it up and cleaned the guide tube it rides in, it would trip the switch when the tank was full. The reason the tank was filling up was a little less obvious. There is a 2-piece plastic tray that sits underneath the evaporator and above the condenser. The tray is supposed to distribute the water that's dripping from the cold evaporator coils onto the warm condenser coils so it can evaporate and be blown out with the warm exhaust air (note that "evaporator" and "condenser" are referring to the refrigerant - the terms appear backwards when referring to what's happening to the water on the outside). The tray and its lid have a series of tiny holes that were - guess what - plugged by dust. The tray is relatively easy to remove, just two screws and a spring clamp on the overflow hose. The tray lid is heat-staked onto the tray, you should be able to clean it without separating the lid. I cleaned and reinstalled the tray and verified that water would flow properly. I then reassembled the unit and fired it up, and it's been running without a puddle for over a day in humid weather.
The unit has a filter for the recirculating room air, but there is no filter for the outside air loop. Adding a filter would obviously help keep the dust out, but it could also reduce the cooling efficiency of the unit.
DO NOT use one of these on a floor you care about without some sort of emergency catch tray underneath!
