Question about GE Air Conditioners
DOES IT HAVE AN OVERFLOW VALVE FOR CONDENSATION? IF SO, DOES THAT MEAN THE PC PIPE IN THE FRONT OF THE UNIT IS CLOGGED AND NEED TO BE REPLACED OR CLEANED... WATER IS COMING OUT A SMALL TUBE ON THE UNIT - NOT SURE IF CAUSING UNIT TO WORK HARDER
Hello Cheryl, what they are talking about is a drain. As air conditioners run they collect moisture from the air on the evap(in cooling mode) or condenser ( in heat mode). This moisture will run off the part and flow into the tray. In the cooling mode, the moisture is slung onto the condenser to help cool it down, thus be more effective. I always recommend once a year remove the unit and clean all the coils and oil the fan motor. Household oil will work for this. During this cleaning find and clean out the drain. If it gets clogged that water can run back into the home. The PC pipe is sometimes attached to the unit to direct the water to a designated place. These units are common in hotels and they use the pipe to keep the water from dripping on the guest as they walk under the windows. Hope this helps.
