SOURCE: air conditioner leaking

Hi, There are no pipes, just passage ways on a window unit. It probably needs cleaned. Window units naturally create water in the evaporator area. The water is suppose to drain to the back of the unit through passage ways to the condensing area where the slinger ring on the condenser fan blade slings it into the condenser coil making it more efficient. There is usually a drain hole to drain excess water from the back of the unit. Any dirt or algae in the pathway of this water or the wrong tilt will cause water to build up and drip or blow out the front. Anything touching the evaporator coil allowing water to run down the obstacle into the wrong area will cause the same thing. reduced air flow will cause the evap to freeze which could also cause a water problem. Since the tilt is right and it doesn't seem to be freezing, Maybe a temporary increase in tilt and a dropper of bleach at the base of the evaporator would do it. This will kill the algae and may unblock the water flow. NOTE: It may also cause stains on a carpet or floor if the bleach water drips onto it. If you want to pull it out and clean it, most units can be pulled out of the housing and sprayed with a water hose but you need to be careful not to get water in the electrical parts of the unit. They can be covered with plastic or foil. Make sure you unplug the unit before trying to remove it. You may have to remove some screws to remove it from the housing. Hope this has helped. kstfas

SOURCE: Hotpoint MAC-130 air conditioner dripping water

You need to blow out the drain line where it hooks up to the pan and clean out the drip pan. It doesn't matter how clean you keep the filter, that's just to keep the evaporator coils clean, which is important in itself. But algae will grow in the drip pan if it is not tilted to drain correctly and will clog up the drain line. If you put a level on the top of the unit, the bubble should JUST BARELY break the line on the OPPOSITE side from the drain outlet on the pan. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: GMPN goodman furnace: Water leaks from the base.

Check the drain tubes inside the furnace. There may be a loose connection or a split tube.
The unit could also leak from the gasket between the secondary heat exchanger and the vent fan housing. The secondary heat exchanger ould also be leaking or cracked.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: A/C drain pan not draining.

The drain must have one and only one trap in it. A trap is where the pipe goes up then back down so that water is kept in a section of the pipe - will stop the air from blowing thru the drain and not letting the water drain - may not sound right but it is! I've seen this many times! Drain traps are not understood at all by the HVAC industry.

SOURCE: Water not draining out the back

Check the weep holes in the bottom of unit. It is holding water and when it does flood itself it will be inside with you.

Tfx25ppbb. Water leaks into bottom of freezer when refilling ice tray in automatic ice maker. Ice still gets made but water leaks to the bottom of freezer. When enough freezes, it leaks out the door


It's probably not the ice-maker. It has a plugged drain. This is located in the back wall of the freezer near the bottom. remove the evaporator cover...(the back wall of the freezer). Below the coils is a trough with a hole in it where the defrost water drains. This is probably frozen over.
Pour some hot water in to trough until you see drain hole. Keep pouring until water runs thru drain. May have to shut down ref to get it to defrost.

My portable ac says to add water, how do i do that


There are 2 issues.
The first is that there is a water container in which you must fill water so the compressor cools. This is housed usually in the side. There is an automatic push panel on the side of the unit which when pushed opens the door. The container sits inside which needs to be taken out and filled daily.

The other is the water that condenses because of cooling the air. This settleas at the bottom of the ac. Bend down abd you will see a drain plug and a rubber blocker. Unscrew the drain plug and pull the rubber. All the condensed water will flow out. It can be messay so preferably drain in the bathroom.

Freezer door leaking alot of water on floor no ice on door


This really sounds like a plugged drain. When the unit goes into defrost the water should run down the drain into the drain pan...when the drain is plugged it will run over and down to the bottom of the freezer thus leaking out the bottom of the door and onto the floor. You will need to take everything out of the freezer and remove the screws that hold the back panel on break out the ice at the bottom and use hot water to pour down the drain to clear it.....also if you have a small hose to shove down the drain that will help out alot.

HELP WITH WATER LEAK??


If you have turned the water off and it is still leaking out of the freezer side you may have a plugged drain. the drain is there as part of the defrost system to keep modern refrigerators frost free. When the machine goes into defrost and the heater in the freezer comes on it drains out the drain to a pan underneath and the heat from the compressor and the condenser fan underneath the unit evaporate it and the whole process starts all over again. every once in a while something will plug the drain on the bottom of the inside of the freezer side and when the heater kicks on to defrost the refrig the water cant go anywhere but to the bottom of the freezer and seeps out the front at the bottom of the door between the gasket and the refrig. check the drain...because if you have turned off the water and it is still showing up this could very well be your problem. Take the bottom shelves out of the freezer and look to the back and bottom at the middle sometimes you can see the drain and sometimes you have to remove the thin metal panel covering the back bottom half of the freezer,....inspect the drain hole and remove any obstructions or ice build up. if need be pour hot water into the drain to melt any ice that could be causing the obstruction to the drain. and the hot water should drain out of the frige.Write me back and let me know if I can help you further....

Oil Leak


Need model and serial number off this unit in order to proceed.

However, if it is a KY model, with an about 2" cover underneath. That cover is blocking the oil drain plug. It is possible that the oil drain plug is leaking. Remove and drain oil into pan. Clean the plug and add plumbers tape to the plug and install. Then fill the unit back up with oil.

Freezer drain plug


Self defrosting refrigerators as well as freezers all have a defrost drain system. This drain system can become plugged or frozen causing defrost drain water to back up into the refrigerator or freezer compartment. The water may gather under the crisper drawers on top freezer models. On side by side, bottom or stand alone freezers ice will build up in the freezer at the bottom and eventually leak out the door.

Plugged Defrost Drain - Freezer on Top (Water under the crisper drawers)

At the top of the refrigerator next to the temperature controls there usually is a cup-like part that carries the defrost drain water into a tube and out the back of the refrigerator to a defrost drain pan behind the unit. Pull the cup out of the tube and clean the cup with hot water and soap. If there is no cup, pull the refrigerator out away from the wall, go behind it and disconnect the drain tube to clear it. If the drain tube is not accessible from the back or the drain can not be cleared from there the main back panel in the freezer can be removed to access, thaw and flush out the drain under the cooling coil.

Use a turkey baster to flush HOT water into the tube to clear any obstruction. The water squirted into the tube should end up in the defrost drain pan.

If the tube will not clear with hot water try blowing it out with compressed air.

Put the cup back on and make sure it is all the way on or in the tube.

Plugged Defrost Drain - Side By Side, Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator or Stand Alone Freezer

The defrost drain pan is located at the bottom of the freezer compartment behind the back wall of the freezer. On some models, the pan is accessible without removing the back panel and others are not. After you get to the defrost drain pan use a hair dryer to melt the ice from the pan.

Once the ice is removed use a turkey baster to squirt HOT water into the drain hole to clear the drain.

When the drain is clear you should hear or see the water you are squirting into the hole enter the pan under or behind the refrigerator.

Whirlpool fridge getting water from upper freezer compartment


well if you hat the freezer on top normaly air leaks inside freezer through the drain tube, that air turns into condensation and creates a ice and cloges your drain. now water can drain down to pan everytime ref goes into defrost , and water leaks to bottom section to air ducts and air returns. there are several ways to solve this problem the cheapeste way is to unplug refrigerator for 2 days then plug back up and it should go back to normal another way is to install a heat probe on your drain attached to your defrost heater , and add a grommet on drain tube that will let water drain but it will keep air out and that will solve your problem.

Water leaking below the freezer unit


I have a GE side-by-side refrigerator/freezer and have had the same problem with water pooling at the bottom of the freezer and running onto the floor. The solution is easy. There is a drain tube just behind the pull out drawer at the toward the bottom of the freezer. When that tube get's plugged, it does not allow for water to drain out into the drain pan. To solve the problem, first remove any ice build up from the bottom of the freezer and from around the drain tube opening. Then pull the freezer away from the wall and remove the cover from the bottom of the appliance. You will see a drain tube on the bottom right side. This is the tube that is plugged. Simply use a turkey baster to squirt warm water down the tube from the inside of the freezer (or anything that will allow you to squirt water into the drain tube) until water flows from the tube into the drain pan. It usually takes me 3-5 times to clear the line and once it is cleared, I run a little additional water through the line to make sure it's cleaned out well. The repair is simple and only take about 15-20 minutes.
