    Soleusair LX-140 leaking water on the floor. Emergency Tank Full but unit does not shut down. How do I check to see if water is leaking before it gets to the tank

    Water condenses on the outside of my LX140 portable A/C. I have it draining to the outside already. I put a drain pan under it to collect the condensation.

You need to get the condensate water to drain outside the building.

We have a Kenmore Elite 795 fridge. It is constantly leaking water from the bottom right corner of the unit onto the floor. There always seems to be a build up of ice at the bottom of the unit.


Usually the result of CONDENSATION due to eithr bad door seals allowing air and moister in to condensate. or a plugged or clogged evaporator drain line which causes water to back up and freeze or leak out the lowest point the bottom?

What is causing water to leak down onto the floorboard of my 2004 Mazda 6 when I have AC on?


this will be condensate from the fins of the ac evaporator in the car and is leaking onto the floor because the drain on the unit is blocked either in the hose or at the bottom of the ac box

This is your condensation build up on the A/C unit. You will have to have a drain on it all of the time. Should have a drain that goes outside. The more humidity the more water run off you will have.

Unit is leaking water from somewhere


Upper drip pan drains clogged, water overflowing onto the floor.

Remove the rear cover of the unit and clean it thoroughly wit a vacuum. Let the unit fully defrost. Use a can of Air duster (for pc's) with the little hose on to clear the drain holes in the upper drip tray. Clean dirty evaporator fins with windex and toothbrush, flush with water. Excess condensate should now drain into the bottom tank instead of overflowing ontot he ground. Be sure to drain the bottom tank thoroughly. With the unit cleaned it should now vent condensate out the warm air duct rather than letting it build up in the unit.

Leaking all over the floor


If it's a window unit, it needs to be tilted down on the outside a little; there may be a drain plug that you should open also. If it's a portable unit, you'll need to check the drain pan and/or drain hose. The water is condensation created by the unit doing it's job; it needs to go somewhere.

Same problem with the leaking from the base of the soleus unit


There is nothing wrong with the unit, you just are in a humid area, the water is from the air.

The water is being pulled from the air, that is part of how it cools, by condensing water.

Some units have hose fittings that can be hooked up to normal garden hoses and routed outside.

You could also install something like that yourself.

Soleus LX-140 leaking problem


We have a 1-year PE3-09R-03 that just started dripping water on the floor. The red "tank full" light never came on. I opened it up to investigate, and I believe the problems are caused by dust. The plastic float that trips the "tank full" switch appears to have gotten stuck due to the combination of water and dust in the tray. Once I loosened it up and cleaned the guide tube it rides in, it would trip the switch when the tank was full. The reason the tank was filling up was a little less obvious. There is a 2-piece plastic tray that sits underneath the evaporator and above the condenser. The tray is supposed to distribute the water that's dripping from the cold evaporator coils onto the warm condenser coils so it can evaporate and be blown out with the warm exhaust air (note that "evaporator" and "condenser" are referring to the refrigerant - the terms appear backwards when referring to what's happening to the water on the outside). The tray and its lid have a series of tiny holes that were - guess what - plugged by dust. The tray is relatively easy to remove, just two screws and a spring clamp on the overflow hose. The tray lid is heat-staked onto the tray, you should be able to clean it without separating the lid. I cleaned and reinstalled the tray and verified that water would flow properly. I then reassembled the unit and fired it up, and it's been running without a puddle for over a day in humid weather.
The unit has a filter for the recirculating room air, but there is no filter for the outside air loop. Adding a filter would obviously help keep the dust out, but it could also reduce the cooling efficiency of the unit.
DO NOT use one of these on a floor you care about without some sort of emergency catch tray underneath!
