Check for a blockage in the condensate drain. If you have an air tank, squirt some air up the drain line to clear the debris. Things will get a little wet if you do this so prepare the area with towles.

My Carrier Infinity system Model FE4A is leaking water from the bottom of the unit on to the basement floor. How do I stop the leak?


have your HVAC technician check the pressures in your unit...sounds like you may have low pressure. You should NOT be having any ice build up to melt off.

I have a Carrier central air unit in the attic. There is water dripping through the ceiling. There is a problem with the internal drain pan, as the unit drips a LOT of water into the emergency pan. There...


The internal catch pan is very time consuming to replace, especially since it is located in the attic. But before you try that, have you checked to see if the drain line is clogged with algae and that it has the one inch to one foot drop you need for proper drainage? Has you house settled throwing the slope off?

If you live in the South algae growth can clog you drain line. I would disconnect the drain line (have a bucket handy) and see if it is clogged. If you have algai growth then you need to treat with bleach to kill it off. You might also want to run a drain snake through the rest of the line to make sure that it is clear.

Good luck!

Water draining from my upstairs unit


It is normal to see water coming from the evaporator coil. This shows the humidity in the air crossing over it is being removed. I would be a little concerned about water standing in the pan. I recommend you blow the drain out and run a little bleach through the drain. The bleach will help eliminate slime, mold, and mildew. It is a good idea to repeat the bleach every time you change your filter. They also make tablets that you can put in the evaporator pan if you prefer. But a cup of bleach once a month is just as effective in my opinion.

Water in the drip pan- what is causing it?


I assume you are talking about the indoor unit. One function of the a/c system is to dehumidify the air. Condensation forms on the cooling coil and runs to the drip pan. There should be a drain line on the drip pan that drains the pan outside. These sometimes become clogged causing the water level in the pan to rise. Try some mild drain cleaner to open the line. Hope this helps. Let me know what you find.

Excessive water dripping from Central A/C drian line


sounds like the overflow drain is picking up the water that means the main drain is clogged.you need to find the main drain pipe if lookin at the air handler in attic there should be 2 drains from unit one higher than other follow it and blow out drain they put the other overflow drain out the eve so if it stars leaking someone notices it and it doesnt damage cieling but it sound like it needs imediate attention befor it does go to the overflow pan and damage your cieling. i hope this helps and good luck

No cool air comes out of our unit even though it's running. System is about 2 years old-a little less. Filter regularly changed. The pan underneath is also full of water.


are the unit is upflow (on the closed) or horizontal (most like it on the attic)
if is horizontal and the drain pan is full seems the main drain is clogged can you blow air thru drain?  make sure you dont have a flow swith on the drain pan that prevent the condenser to come on

Can I mount a window unit with no outside access


You could/can, but don't forget that (a) there is a good chance of heavy condesation, so size pan appropriately, or drain...and (b) The enclosed space where the drip pan is, is going to get quite warm. Hope this helps

My air cond is leaking water inside but works perfectly


If the unit is newer, there is a PVC male adapter that screws into the condensate pan. Typically they don't come loose unless it has been stepped on acidentally (attic install). The main condensate drain sounds like it is clogged. You can use compressed air to blow it out or try and run a small snake through it.
