Question about GE Air Conditioners

1 Answer

My air conditioner doesn't drip to the outside. I have a small leak to the inside, but I'm really not sure if it's how my airconditioner is set or what. It cools fine, and it is slightly slanted to the outside. Will it still be o.k. if it doesn't drip properly, but still runs fine?

It will still be o.k. But the drain system on it should be cleared out at your earliest opportunity.

My goldstar 6000 btu window ac is dripping into the house


Sounds like you're using it when the outside temp is cooler than the inside temp. when this happens, frost will build up on the condensor. Turn the unit off until the ice melts off with a shim under the unit tilting it back towards the outside of the window to drain. If it continues to drip after melting all the ice off and letting it dry out, you have a small leak in the condensor, (unit must be old or worn out) that the freon pressure has leaked out causing it to condensate more. A good checklist would be to check the level of the unit, make sure the coils are clean and not bent, the age of the unit and for small areas of corrosion or white marks on the condensor before replacing it.

Hello I have just purchased a secondhand hotpoint MAC 130 airconditioner and it is running well however water is dripping from a black outlet at its base. Should there be a hose which attaches/srews onto...


The bigger hole is a drain plug to quickly empty the unit, it should have a runner bung plug and shouldn't leak, the small tube is all you need to get excess water outside

Water dripping from airconditioner inside the house


Water leak is the common issue in split a/cs. Due to coil,air filter, drain pan dust blocked, less rpm of blower motor, short of gas.
If service for the unit is more than 4 months, please do it first. And then check rpm of blower motor, if less replace capacitor.
Check gas pressure. Must be 60 PSI @ 98*F, of ambient temp. If less than that find leak and arrest and do gas charging. Thanks.

We have a window unit model ash08fas1 and it is leaking water into the window to our carpet. Does this model come with a drip pan or plug that needs to be moved? And how do we access it?


Look at your unit from outside the house. The back of the air conditioner should be slightly lower than the front. If it is level or the front of the air conditioner is lower it will drip into the house. Some window units have a drain for the water outside and some don't. Look for a hole in the bottom of the unit outside and if you find one make sure it is not plugged. Also dirty coils can cause a frost buildup on the inside of the unit. This will drip also. If this is the case you should see the ice buildup by removing the front cover or removing the front filter.

The ac is dripping inside the room


Hello.
You need to clean out the drain pan.Also unit shold be tilted back a little so water will run outside.

Remove the front grill and using an old tooth brush clean out the bottom pan where water is laying.Also be sure the drian hole outside the unit is clear.

The water that drains from the airconditioner to outsied is clogged up and not draining how can i unclogg it myself?


I can tell you a few stories of my own - I've had this problem myself and water will eventually build up and leak inside your house - you don't want it to leak on your electrical outlet ! I do not know how long you had this unit or how old is it, but these things can happen over time due to dirt, dust or other foreign objects or rust. Some AC units have fan spinning and picking up the water and spraying it on evaporators, most of it should be evaporated - only excess humidity will cause dripping - on older models water should drip outside through an opening or two at the back of the AC unit.

Make sure your AC is not level, and is tilted about 20 degrees outside, allowing the water to flow outside the AC unit.

You will need to find a way to access your AC unit from outside, locate the areas where the water drips normally, you should see openings, using an object (paper clip, pipe cleaner, etc.) try to insert it in the holes back and forth until you dislodge whatever is blocking the hole - be careful not to damage the very deliate fins at the back of your AC.

if still no water drips then take a ladder and climb up and you shuold be able to see from the inside there should be a slope or container where water accumulates before dripping out, is there ANY water there ? If you mostly see water farther away then your AC is probably not tilted enough to allow water to flow out.

If there is neither any water towards the outer edge where it drips, nor inside, farther away nor dripping inside your home, then it is probably being all evaporated or your humidity level is under control. The more your air has moisture the more water will be produced inside your AC, any excess moisture will accumulate inside your AC - if your AC manages to evaporate all of it, and no leaks inside, good for you, I wouldn't touch it.

Another tip - when you shut down your AC, do you hear swishing and unusual sounds of water ? that could mean accumulated water not being evacuated - Although it IS normal for some stagnant water to remain in your AC - do not worry about that, as long as it doesn't leak inside.

Air con is leaking water from sides and bottom, how do I get the front off to clean out the small filter inside??? Steph Walkerston


When an airconditioner leaks water it is usually from the drains being blocked with build up. The easiest way to take care of this problem is to use a wet vac, and suction the blockage out. Your drain is located outside. It will most likely be made of pvc. That is where you apply the suction.

Zoneline Airconditioning - Winterizing and drain line


Yes this will recycle the room and can be cover outside if it is not a heat pump and will use elec heat strips to heat. As long as it is tilled toward the back the water will run out the back without a drain kit there should also be a drain hole in the bottom.
