Question about Mitsubishi Mr. Slim MXZ30TN Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Leaking water inside

This unit is located in our server room and for some reason the well gets clogged up on it and water starts dripping all over everything. We can go outside and blow on the drain pipe to clear it, but in a few weeks we are back to the same thing. Please advise on what to do.

Dear brians933,
If the air conditioner is window / wall mounted please make sure that it is tilted backwards about 3/8 inches. The front side should be upward and the out side portion of the AC downwards. If the drain pipe is blocked the water will leak inside. Please run a stiff wire or thin rod in the drain pipe and then **** the water out please donot blow in, the pipe is getting more blocked this way.
Hope this solve your problem.
Regards,
ramesh22

I have water drips from the filter on my dometic ac. Then when you change the settings or turn unit off it drains more water. I noticed a lot of condensation in the area of the coil foam housing


Sounds like unit is too small or there is too high of humidity. An A/C unit draws water out of the air as it absorbs the heat from the room. If the room is too big or there is too high of humidity the evaporator will freeze the moister and ice will build up then it will drip when turned off as the ice melts. As a fix, You can get a bigger unit, use a dehumidifier ( which works the same as A/C), or start the A/C at a warmer temp.and turn down gradually as air moisture disappears.

Water


Water should drip off the back (if this is a window unit). It may be clogged. Or the unit may be tipped forward into the room too much.

Condensation water does not leave pan when it gets full you can hear the water being picked up and thrown around in the unit. There is no water flowing either inside or outside unit.


What you hear is an indication that the drain hole in the drip pan is clogged. Check the outside of the bottom of the drip pan. The hole may be hard to locate, as the clog can blend in with the drain hole. It may take patience & persistence to find it. A pipe cleaner works well to clear the hole. And while you're at it, check the downward tilt of the rear of the unit. The general rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2" downward tilt. This will help to water to flow to the rear of the drip pan and out thru the drain hole.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Water flushed from unit inside the room instead of beeing flushed outside throw the out let pipe


Possible that the tilt is more to the front that makes the water drip down. Another reason is that the drain pipe can be clogged with dirt build up and so it flushes back.
Finally if the evaporator is dirty and clogged due to dirt accumulation the water might drip down to the front.
So please check you filter, use high pressure air on to clean and reset the panel.

Water is squirting out of the ac vent and I can hear water in the system? just purchased two units for childrens rooms 2 months ago? please tell me that there is an easy solution to this problem, we are...


The problem is that neither of the units have enough rear downward tilt (1/4" to 1/2") so that the water in the drip pan, will flow to the drain hole in the rear of the drip pan. In addition, the drain hole in both units may be clogged. Look for the drain hole under the rear of the unit, near the outer rim of the pan. It can be hard to find at times, as the clog can blend in with the hole. A pipe cleaner works well to clear the clog.

I hope this helps you to solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Haier Air Conditioner window unit that is leaking inside the house. What are some possible causes and solutions?


There are basically 2 causes:

1. The rear of the AC unit is not tilted down enough, so that water in the drip pan flows to the drain hole in the rear of the drip pan. The general rule of thumb for rear downward titl is 1/4" to 1/2".

2. The drain hole in the drip pan, near the rear of the unit is clogged. Locating the clogged hole can be a challenge, as the clog will blend in with the drain hole. Patience & persistence are needed in locating it. A pipe cleaner works well to clear the clog from the hole.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Water leaking inside home and window seal


The problem you're having can be caused by 2 things. The drain hole in the drip pan is clogged and/or the rear of the unit is not tilted down enough, so the water can flow to the drain hole, near the rear of the drip pan. The general rule of thumb for the downward tilt is 1/4" to 1/2".
Finding the drain hole can be a challenge at times, as the clog can blend in with the hole. Patience & persistence are what's need in locating it. A piper cleaner works well to clear the hole.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Water Leaking into room


if you can see a drain blow backwards through it.It may also just be angled the wrong direction(the whole unit).If you cant see an external drain,unplug the unit and take the cover off .you should then be able to clear it.

Water dripping (almost running) out of the left corner of air handling unit. Help???


You're correct in checking the drain pipe, because it's become blocked. The only trouble is, you're trying to clear the wrong end. The condensate water is spilling out of the air handler because that's where the pipe has a clog. These pipes usually have un-glued joints next to the air handler, for times such as this. If you can't pull them apart, you may have to cut the pipes and reconnect tham with fittings from the hardware store. (which is a normal procedure.) I usually use a wet/dry shop vac when repairing this problem, sucking out the clog & the water, then blowing out the line to where it drains outside. I've also used the clothes hanger technique to drag crud out of the air handler fitting. Hope this is helpful. ;)

Room air conditioner


the unit needs to be tipped outward so that the lowest point of the unit is actually outside the window.
