Question about Mitsubishi Mr. Slim MXZ30TN Air Conditioner

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

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.

Can't find the drain line for ac. water is leaking in side on pass side


Could be the drain tube is partially clogged. It is usually located on the fire-wall or down towards the floor pan under the car. It is usually close to where the A/C lines go thru the fire-wall. About 1/2 inch diameter sticking straight out but may have a 90 degree elbow pointing down.
Also, it's been extra hot and humid all over and moisture could be freezing inside the unit when on MAX A/C, then suddenly melting when switched to normal. This opens the outside air door and allows warm/hot air into the unit instead of recirculating the cold air inside the car. The drain may not be able to handle a large, sudden quantity of water.
Perform a "driveway" test. Open the hood, start engine and run the A/C on normal with the windows or doors open. Locate the drain tube by looking for water dripping. Once located twist 2 or 3 pipe cleaners together and verify the tube is clean. Then close the doors/windows and switch to MAX A/C. Check for water dripping. If it stops dripping, water is freezing inside and now you know why!

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.

I take it that condensate from the evaporator is leaking inside on the floor. Could be the drain tube is partially clogged. It is usually located on the fire-wall or down towards the floor pan under the car. It is usually close to where the A/C lines go thru the fire-wall. About 1/2 inch diameter sticking straight out but may have a 90 degree elbow pointing down.

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.

JDC2389GES side by side fridge Water is leaking inside the freezer and pooling at the bottom.


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Actually the leaking water is from the evaporator coil unit....(it is located at the back wall or underneath the freezer compartment). Under normal conditions,Self-defrost refrigerators usually dispose the water generated during the defrost cycle through a tube or channel that directs the water a pan (Known as Drip pan), commonly below the refrigerator unit....
The channel or tube is clogged and the water is leaking to the refrigerator/freezer unit, so you need to clear that blockage/contamination....Once the blockage is removed, the generated water will move through that channel/tube directly to the drip pan and there will no water on the floor in the refrigerator/freezer compartment. This is all you need to do....


Best of Luck,


Your token of appreciation in form of rating would be highly obliged,
