If you can find where it drains too, you can attach a wet/dry vac to drain and vacuum out any debris lodged in pipe. Have an assistant go near the indoor unit and listed for the sound of the vac just to make sure you have the correct drain.

How do you remove front panel on unit?


It is highly likely that the condensate drain line is blocked and water is building up inside the unit. Find the drain line on the outside of the house and clear the blockage in the end of the pipe. The pipe typically just runs onto the ground, but may go into the gutters if the unit is on the roof. Occassionaly the blockage will be inside the indoor unit, but this is rare, so check the outside first.

How we repair LG ac showing C1


try switch the unit off till ice melts and try running the unit again after. if the ice is till coming back check the filters are clean and outside coil clean. sounds like a restriction in piping,possibly a blockage.
c1 err caused by the indoor pipe sensor being out of spec, possibly due to the ice buildup.

What would be causing Reverse cycle Inverter split system to leak? I have checked filters are clean and that there is no blockages of outdoor drainage hose?


The accumulated water has no drain to flow through, and is backing up in the indoor unit. Find the source of the clogged drain, and your problem will disappear. If you are lucky, you can pour a little bleach or peroxide in the indoor unit's cooling coil and the chemical will eat your clog. Otherwise, mechanical cleaning may be necessary. Check your installation manual to see how your unit is supposed to be plumbed.

My coleman air conditioner 7300 series is leaking water on the inside


Water in an air conditioner is generally condensation building up on the indoor coil. This happens when the temperature of the coil is below the current dew point of the atmosphere. You have possibly two issues going on.

1) the condensation drip line, which carries the water to the outside is blocked or disconnected (most likely blocked with wet dust build up etc) and can typically be cleared by using an air hose to blow the blockage clear.

2) excessive water can be an indicator that you may have a slow leak in the refrigerant system. reduced pressures will lower the temperature of the coil causing it to condense more water, more frequently. While you might enjoy the seeming better performance of the unit, if there is a leak it will eventually reach a point where the water will freeze(cutting off the air flow so no cooling) and eventually stop working altogether. Have a certified technician check your system for leaks. Remember that most rooftop units use R-22 refrigerant, not R-134a automotive refrigerant. The wrong refrigerant in the system can be very damaging to components and seals, and can cause the unit to function improperly.

Whenever we switch on the ac after 5 to 10 mins water starts leaking from the indoor unit front side.


most likley your airco needs servicing.there is a condensate drain off on the outside where the copper piping comes out the wall,if after the 5 to 10 mins no water comes out through there it could mean that the drainline is choked..also u can check to see if your evaporator is graded properly to ensure a proper drain out of the condensate:-)

Water leaking from indoor unit after 30 mins use


The drain tray has a blockage. Easiest fix is to lift the front facia panel & get someone to hold a towel at the bottom right hand coil where the air filter normally sits. Then blow up the condensate drain from the outside.

LG 18000 ac leaks water in the front of unit indoors.


Hi,

the drain pan is either clogged or the unit is not mounted properly. If the drain pan is clogged simply clean it and the problem goes away. In the case of the unit mounting, check the angle of the unit and the drain pan inside, if it tilted to the front even just a little then water would leak. the drain pan should lean toward the drain and away from the front.

I hope this helps.

LG Split Ac-Sprinkles water in roomafter a while of cooling


first check to make sure that the indoor unit is very slightly off level sloped to the drain area also turn off power and inspect the indoor coil with a flash light to make sure all the fin area is open the drain pan has two possible drain connections if they are both hooked up then the primary "lowest"
could be stoped up a blast of water or air to the drain line should clear out slime also make sure their is a trap in the drain line or the water will only drain dwhen unit is off hope this solves your problem thanks

You will need to let the indoor fan run for several hours to defrost the indoor coil. it may take 12 hours to defrost you'll know when it's clear when the vents are blowing like usual again. Then run the unit for 5 minuits and check the large copper insulated line going to the outdoor unit. is it cold? if not you need a refrigerant charge. If it is then make sure never to run the unit below 70 degrees and check your air fliter and return duct for blockage of possible collapse. Also you may have a dirty indoor coil chac that and clean the outdoor one as well.
