Water leaking


Water can fall off of coil prematurely, before it reaches the drain pan, sometimes due to debris on the coil surface, airflow turbulence in the return air box, and in some instances I've never resolved until the machine was replaced. The drain pan could be cracked or have blocked channels that allow water to drain from the rear to the front. It could also have ice on it/freezing up. Some will developed a thin sheet of ice and drip water. The drain line may be stopped up or broken/loose fitting. Some coils have a laminate on the aluminum fins that can deteriorate. Hope this gives you something to check!

Tip

Water leak in split a/c.


When compressor pumps the vapor of the freon passes through condenser coil pipelines where the heat removed by fan and becomes low pressure low temp and then travels as liquid. By removal of heat in the room again the freon get vaporized and sent to compressor. In this cycling if your indoor coil is dust blocked the room heat can't be removed. resulting this the liquid becomes forming ice over the coil. And when it cut off by coil temp, the fan only will work and ice get defrosted and water spray thr' vent.Due to coil block and makes airlock to drain pipeline. Resulting to water leak inside.To avoid water leaking service your a/c periodically.

My a/c unit get ice on coils


Hello, usually the unit will develop ice on the coil if there is not enough airflow, a dirty coil or dirty filter which prevents proper airflow. You can buy coil cleaner at a heating and cooling store and spray it on the coil, it should do the trick. If that does not work then the unit has a low refrigerant charge due to a leak.

My samsung unit was leaking water from the inside unit and then it stopped working


Thanks for your detailed statement as stopped working after water leak.

Water leak due to

It's because of non-maintained air conditioner. Clean airfilter, indoor coil, blower wheel and also drain pan. Insulate freon pipelinesproperly and tightly. After that run the a/c. If still water dripping. Checkindoor f.motor speed. If less replace capacitor. If f.m. is o.k, check gaspressure. If less, there will be ice formation over the coil and water drippingwill be there when it melting. If short of gas, check for leak andrectify. (Unit stopped as coil sensor is activated while ice forming over coil)Thanks. Helpful?

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.

I have a Ruud Achieve model UPKB 060 CAZ that has a line that keeps freezing up when the thermostat is set to go below 76 degrees. The freon was checked and some was added. Also, the air handler is in...


Normally when the suction line freezes which is the larger of the 2 lines, #1, its low on freon again and unit has a leak. They are sealed systems and they should never need freon only if they develop a leak. So, this we know. Also, if the air filter is dirty and plugged, and the evaporator coil at the air handler is dirty will cause icing of lines and coil.Not enough air flow across the coil due to a dirty filter. When you set your thermostat to go below 76 degrees, the unit will work harder to keep up to bring the temperature down and if you have a leak which you do, the suction line will ice up. A Ruud 060 is a 5 ton btu unit, good size. Who ever added freon should have done a leak check on it. I would recommend you calling them out as it is low again and do a complete leak check, add dye to the system or there are many ways to do this. If the leak is not found it will continue to ice up. By E.P.A. standards, they cant keep adding freon, they must find the leak.This is all about you can do, is check and make sure you have a return air filter and its clean, and if it continues to ice, have them find the leak, repair it, and re-charge it. I wish you the best.
Sincerely,

Botton of evaporator coil freezes and compressor


This is a common problem with any type air conditioner it is caused by to much humidity in the air when the unit is not big enough to Handel the cooling I would suggest getting a bigger unit, adding another unit or a dehumidifier, or setting the unit to a higher temp. then turning it down gradually to let the ice melt and take the humidity out gradually.
