PAC CT-90 Air conditioner My CT90 is leaking


When you air condition, you essentially remove heat from the "inside air" and transfer it to the "outside air". from a google search this thing is sort of like a window air conditioner, but the hot air is sent outside via a vent hose, so the unit can be located away from the window. Any time you cool air, it holds less water, so depending on the humidity, there will be condensate formed, the question is, how is it dealt with. In window air conditioners, you see it dripping from the back side when it is running. For your unit, is it unclear how the condensate is being removed; maybe hot air going outside is directed across where the condensate collects and it is assumed it will evaporate and be vented outside as vapor? First, check and see if the unit is still under warrantee, if so, contact them and see how to get it fixed (if you mess with it, it might void the warrantee). If it has expired or the company is out of business, etc, you can try opening it up and see what is going on. The water collects under the evaporator (the fins where cold air comes out). Underneath there should be some kind of tray or something that collects the condensate and directs it somewhere in the unit for it to be gotten rid of. I'm thinking something is cracked, leaking or come loose, letting the water escape and run out. If that is the case, you might be able to use silicone seal or something like it to seal the leak. Hopefully, it is something simple like that.

Haier portable AC water collection tank full in one hour.


My unit was working fine for a couple years but now it won't evaporate. It still cools fine but it also collects about 16 ounces of water every hour and then shuts itself off until I drain it. I'm wondering it the evaporative mechanism it broken some how.

Water on floor from ac unit


Hi John,

First, water from an A/C unit is normal, and is created when warm, moist air is passed over a cold surface (like a glass of cold water sweats sitting in a warm room). This is called condensation.

Solve the issue by making sure the unit is tilted slightly back - towards the outside. This allows the condensation that drips off the cold coil will land on the bottom of the case and roll towards the rear - which is outside.

Once it is tilted back, inspect the underside of the outside portion of the unit. You should find several openings designed to allow the water to drain out and fall to the ground. Over time, these holes can become clogged with dust, dirt, spiders, etc. Simply insert a small screwdriver into the hole(s) - just enough to clear the obstruction.

If the unit is draining water out the back to the outdoors AND also inside, water can not drain fast enough from the A/C. You may not have cleared all the openings outside and / or not have provided enough of an angle to the tilt. Locate and clear the additional openings and make the tilt adjustments as needed.

Make sure the filter is clean! A dirty filter can cause the A/C to eventually ice up - providing only partial cooling. When the unit is shut off, the ice will rapidly melt and may do so faster than the water can drain outside - leaving puddles on your floor again.

I hope this helps!

Getting excessive condensation causing water problems at base of unit. Bought new pump but problem returned. Cleaned lines to outside by using wet/dry vac. How do I get to evaporator coil to spray it and...


Hello, in order to get to the evaporator coil you must cut into the plenum above the Furnace. This will require sheet metal tools and being very careful not to puncture the coil. Many times a cracked condensate pan under the evapoartor coil can cause water to leak down to the base of the unit.

Water leaking out of hose on a fujitysu split system ast24rga


Normally, an Air Conditioner removes water from the air and that water condenses on the coils of the inside section that does the cooling. The water condenses on the cooling coils just like moisture condenses on the outside of a glass of ice water.
This excess water drains out of the cooling section through a "drip tube" and is supposed to drain outside of the house, or a drainage system. Your "drip tube" has either not been installed (if it is a brand new installation), has separated and water is now dripping into the house instead of outside of it. Or it is clogged. This happens when algae builds up inside the "drip pan". If that is the case, you can purchase "algaecide" tablets which kill the algae that is clogging the drip pan and preventing water from draining out through the drip tube. These tablets can be found in many hardware stores, refrigeration supply companies, or even Walmart. You can put a tablet inside the pan. (You will have to remove the cover of the unit). You can often use a little bit of Bleach and that will act as an algaecide. Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

Water clogged in the outlet pipe


Hello
This is the condensate drain line which drains humid water the a/c coil collects.

To clean you can try compressed air,blow through the pipe.Or take pipe apart and flush it out.

Have the unit off when doing this,also clean the collection pan out of debri.

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.

We bought a Bonaire cooling system at yard sale, it leaks water after it is running for awhile, plus it sprays water out the front


I take it this is a window Unit , the water is coming in the room because the Unit has to be pitched about 1/2 into the back ( outside ) or the drain line is clogged ( dirt) stopping water from flowing to condenser ( that cools the coil)
The water is condensation from warm air hitting the cold coil .

Panasonic air conditioner. Very small amount of water coming out of unit. There must be a blockage, were do I look for it and is it still ok to run unit? Split sysytem model CU-A24BKP5


It is okay for water to come out of unit unless if it comes into your living space. Then your angle of the unit is off and needs to be readjusted. lean the unit away don't have it level. Needs small amount of angle for excess condensation to run outside.

It sounds like your drain line may be partially plugged. Some times a small insect will get in there and cause a partial obstruction. IF the line is clear and the water continues to drip over the sides then make sure the unit is balanced So that the water will flow to the drain and not out the back.
