If it is a very small leak there are products made that can be put in the system through the suction sideYou will probably have to go to a hvac supply outlet to find them and if it is more than a tiny leak they won't work.
I would replace the entire unit as you will spend close to the same amount to cover all the extra labor to replace just the coil.Good luck and thank you.

My rudd uaka 037JAZ leaks, like to replace just AC and not coil and furnace motor. Replacement suggestion for this unit? Homeowener George


Hello, it depends where the unit is leaking from, if it is leaking from the condensing unit then you can just replace the condenser, however if it is leaking from the evaporator coil then you will need to replace the evaporater. As far as brand for replacement I like rheem equipment. The best thing to do is have a hvac technician come out and give you a estimate on a new AC and then you can make a decision.

My samsung unit was leaking water from the inside unit and then it stopped working


Thanks for your detailed statement as stopped working after water leak.

Water leak due to

It's because of non-maintained air conditioner. Clean airfilter, indoor coil, blower wheel and also drain pan. Insulate freon pipelinesproperly and tightly. After that run the a/c. If still water dripping. Checkindoor f.motor speed. If less replace capacitor. If f.m. is o.k, check gaspressure. If less, there will be ice formation over the coil and water drippingwill be there when it melting. If short of gas, check for leak andrectify. (Unit stopped as coil sensor is activated while ice forming over coil)Thanks. Helpful?

The inside unit is leaking water


Water leaking in split unit common, due to air filter & evaporator coil dust blocked- Clean it.
Drain pan and drain hose dust blocked-clean it. And also due to less rpm of indoor motor, there will be forming ice over the coil result to water leaking while defrosting.Replace motor capacitor.

Leaks water inside


Water leak is the common problem in split air conditioners.. It happens due to:

1. Air filter block 2. Evaporator coil Block. 3. Less rpm of blower motor. 4. Drain line blocked.

To rectify, service the unit completely. If blower motor less rpm, replace motor capacitor.

Hello JBESTER Defrost the unit completely and see if the pressures are low.If more than half the charge/freon(3+)lbs has to be added you have a leak.Make sure the air filters are new as poor air flow can cause ice also.The sniffer I use beeps all the time BUT when near a leak goes crazy!The coil can leak after 6 yrs.You will always will need a recharge untill leak is resloved.

Inside 18000 btu has leak in coils


If you do not know where the leak is located there are several options however, since the leak is on the inside coil it may be nearly impossible to access the area to weld the leak shut. If the leakage isn't excessive there is a chemical out that you add to the low side of the unit and it circulates throughout the system and seals the leak. Remember that if the leak is excessive this will not work. Your local a/c company should have the name of the sealant made by a company out of Canada but an a/c tech will have to evailuate the system first to see if the sealant would be effective. Also, you can purchase the coil by itself from an a/c company and have it itstalled saving quite a bit of money rather than buying a complete system The cost of the coil byy itself is usually a 5th of the cost to replace the inside unit and can be done really quick. A/C companies do not tell you this due to the monies they make selling a complete unit. Good Luck on your repairs hope this helped

You either have a refrigerant leak or a dirty inside coil or a slow running inside blower motor.
Set the thermostat for heat and run it until all the ice is thawed. Then check the incoming air side of the coil for lint and dirt. Check the fan motor for proper speed. If you have service gauges your low side pressure should be approximately 68 psi. If lower you have a leak.

My system is running but not blowing cold air


It depends where the leak is. If its in the coils, you have to replace it. If the leak is easy to get to it would be cheaper just to fix it. So it all depends where the leak is. but 15 years is kind of old for a unit.

Coil blew up on outside unit, is it better to fix or replace whole unit?


Depends on where the coil is leaking. Also the age of the unit. If it is just a small leak a serviceman can repair it. You have to look at how much it will cost to repair, And the cost of new unit.. The new unit will be a 13 seer and may not match the inside coil. . Also some Companies are selling 10 year parts and labor warranties with new units. Look at the leak on your coil to see what caused the leak. Most of the time it a rubbed line or drier leaking. If you have to cut away fins. Buy another condensing unit. When you cut away the fins you loose heat conductivity. Higher head pressure could cause damage to unit. Rusty

Coil leaking freon on the inside unit. Estimate is $2,100!


If indeed your evaporator (indoor) coil is leaking, the best option IS replace it (it may not even BE repairable). If you live in the USA and your furnace is getting old, a new ultra high efficient SYSTEM that qualifies for the tax credit would probably be a better option (Obama will pay 30%).
