The water created by air conditioners is called condensate. This is a normal condition that occurs whenever warm humid air is in the presence of a cold object - much like the way a glass filled with cold water will "sweat" when placed in a warm, humid area.

The unusual part of your problem is that the condensate is leaking inside. This can be a result of a clogged drain or in the case of removable AC units, it being tipped forward - or into the living space. These window units have channels in the bottom and / or drains punched in the sheet metal case, but still require that the unit be tipped back - the bottom of the outside is slightly lower than the bottom of the inside portion of the air conditioner.

You should make sure that the window unit is pitched back as described above and any air conditioner that has a drain opening or hose is not blocked.

I hope this helps. Please rate my reply - thanks!

Check condensate tubes - they may be blocked and need cleaning. All manufactures recommend having your furnace and air conditioner checked and cleaned on an anual basis. You can clean your condensate tubes yourself - if it is severly blocked you may have to use compressed air to unblock, but first to a combination of bleach and water. Better yet a technician will clean the condensate tubes and well as the rest of the unit so that it's running at its top efficiency

Our fujitsu reverse cycle AC is leaking water at bottom left hand side of the internally mounted blower unit


Your drain for the inside unit is stopped up and the water condensate that drips off of the coils when the AC is running has no where to go, so it drips off of the collection channel and over flows to the bottom of the air handler, gravity dictates the place where it leaks. You are going to have to unstop the drain.

MODEL CPRD12HX7-Q THE UNIT WILL NOT TURN ON AND...


I have the same model and if you have been running the dehumidifier the internal water tank will fill with condensate water. You will need to unplug the black plug (in back of unit) to release the pints of water it has accumulated in the tank. Be sure to have a pan under the plug as it will drain immediately. Do not tip the portable unit if you need to put in a shower stall to drain, as water will leak out of the internal water tank into your unit. Hope this helps.

Water dripping from internal unit of J.B.S. split system air conditioner


Hi
This can be due to three reasons. The water drain pipe is block. Which can be sucked clean with wet/dry vacuum cleaner. The drain pipe behind the unit is not sloping downward away from the unit. Or the coils of the internal could be iced up. If this is the case the unit should be switched of until the ice is completely melted and switch the unit on again. If the copper pipes leaving the the condenser unit outside is starting to freeze up, the unit is short of gas. Call a A/C company to refill the gas and search for possible gas leaks.

Why would there be internal leaking into the tray


Never use vinegar to clean your machine. It is possible that the orings are worn out on the brew unit.

Leaking lots of water during rinse cycle first from bottom someplace near center and then from dispenser compartment


Inspect the internal of the unit for actual holes on the tray which may cause the water to leak out. If there are none, check for any floating devices which serve as fill sensor that my need refitting or may be loose. If your unit has a pump for the water, observe it while rinsing without the panel on to check if it is working.

Jura Impresso E9 not dripping through spouts but into drip tray


This is most likely due to a bad o'ring. The bar you speak of...Does the unit have a small spout pointing upward from the area?...with a groove? Is the o'ring in that groove damaged or missing? When the grounds are compressed in the piston, the brew unit lowers down onto this spout and seals on it. The high pressure water then is injected upward inot the brew unit. When this seal fails the water simply leaks into the tray when there are grounds providing backpressure. When rinsing and no backpressure some of the water may be getting through. Make sure you lube up any seals with a food grade lube. Olive oil will work in a pinch.

Leaking water from inside samsung split sytem


if your indoor unit is leaking water down the wall,it is from one of two things.First, is possibly the insulkation on the copper lines is coming loose and the suction line is condesated,with no way to drain,it drips down the unit.The other possiblity is that the drain hose is coming loose from vibration and leaking a little.
