Water dripping from unit need to access drip tray and drain pipe on indoor unit


It sounds like you have a central a/c that has part of the system, the compressor, condenser coil and fan outside on the ground, and the rest inside. The inside part, the evap coil, normally uses the same circulating fan as the heater. If this is the case, then locate your heater access and you should find the evap coil and its drip pan in the duct work.

The unit ices up after an hour or so and then water runs down the wall and not into the drip tray


Two issues are possible.
First of all check for dirt accumulation that is blocking the water to drip but is diverting to the front panel section to flow into the wall.
Secondly the A/C must be mounted with a slight tilt thereby making the water condensation to flow/drop into the tray. If not you can remove and make a small wedge on the mounting to tilt.
Also use a good air jet or a water jet( if taken out) to clean the coils.

Galaxy fridge-water leaking under unit.no shutoff in house.water turned off at street.where/how do i proceed to locate problem?


Hi,

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com


Check the hose under your fridge that drains condensation and such into a catch tray. Make sure the hose is draining properly.

Blow air through the tube to make sure it is not clogged. A coat hanger wire can be inserted to break up clogs. An alternative method is to use a bicycle pump to force air through the drain hole to remove any obstruction. Vacuum dust bunnies from under the fridge to allow free flow of the air. Most refrigerators periodically blow warm air across the condensation tray. The warm air dries the condensation in the tray.

Clogs are usually caused when dust, moisture and micro-organisms get together in the drain tube. Keep the dust vacuumed from the back and bottom of the fridge. Make sure the drain tube is firmly connected at all points. The drain tube can be flushed with chlorine bleach, rubbing alcohol or other anti-bacterial product. Product selection should be consistent with the tubing material.

I have searched some important instruction through net from a valuable soursse…it might be of your help…
Analyzing the likely source
Instructions
STEP 1: Move the refrigerator out from the wall and look for the location of the leak. STEP 2: Check the side panels and the seals around the door for beads of "sweat." This could indicate a condensation problem. STEP 3: Check the floor. A puddle there could indicate a missing or cracked drip pan, or a leak in the water line that feeds your ice maker. STEP 4: Check for water seeping from the front of the freezer or the refrigerator. This could indicate your defrost drain is plugged or your ice maker is leaking. Fixing a condensation problem
Instructions
STEP 1: Check that the doors shut correctly. Hold each door about halfway open, then let go. If the doors don't shut completely, adjust the screw legs on the front of the refrigerator so the unit tilts back a bit. With adjustable pliers, turn each leg one revolution clockwise. Recheck the doors and, if necessary, repeat the process until they shut securely. STEP 2: Inspect the door gaskets. Look for debris that may keep the doors from shutting. Also check for cracks or gaps in the gaskets that could allow the cold air to seep out. If you find debris, clean the gaskets with warm, soapy water. If you find cracks or gaps, you'll need to replace the gaskets (see How to Fix a Refrigerator That Cools Poorly). STEP 3: If your refrigerator is equipped with a door-frame heater that evaporates condensation, make sure the heater is turned on. The switch should be located with your other refrigerator controls. Fixing a drip-pan problem
Instructions
STEP 1: Pull off the grill that runs along the bottom of your refrigerator. STEP 2: Locate the drip pan, using a flashlight if necessary. The pan should be sitting on top of a set of black condenser coils and directly below a drain tube that carries water from your freezer when it is in defrost mode. STEP 3: Place the drip pan in your sink and fill it with water to test for leaks. If it leaks, order a replacement from your appliance dealer. STEP 4: If the drip pan doesn't leak, clean it with warm, soapy water, then reinstall the pan and the refrigerator grill. Fixing a clogged defrost drain
Instructions
STEP 1: Locate the defrost drain. It should be a round hole or a channel running under the vegetable and fruit bins in the refrigerator or along the floor of the freezer compartment. STEP 2: Inspect the drain for clogs and remove any debris. If necessary, use a small screwdriver to break up debris that's trapped in the drain hole. STEP 3: Fill a meat baster with hot water and force it through the drain to make sure the clog is gone. If the drain is operating properly, the hot water will fill the drip pan. Fixing a leaky ice maker
Instructions
STEP 1: Pull the refrigerator away from the wall and locate the copper water-supply line. It runs from the house water line to the refrigerator water-supply valve. (To get to the supply valve, you may have to use a screwdriver or a nut driver and socket to remove your refrigerator's back access panel.) STEP 2: Inspect the copper supply line, the supply valve, and the plastic supply tube that runs from the other side of the supply valve to the back of the ice maker. STEP 3: If a connection is leaking, tighten it with an adjustable wrench. If either the copper supply line or the plastic supply tube is leaking, you need to replace it. STEP 4: Turn off the water supply. The valve may be under the kitchen sink or connected to a cold-water pipe in your basement. STEP 5: Remove the faulty line and take it to a hardware store to get an exact replacement. STEP 6: Install the new line, tighten the connections with the adjustable wrench and turn the water back on.

Tips & Warnings
To keep door gaskets clean and supple, wash them twice a year with warm, soapy water, then coat them with a light film of petroleum jelly.
Some refrigerators have an internal defrost drain that is meant to be serviced by a professional. If you can't find your drain, call a pro.
To prevent possible electrical shock, always unplug your refrigerator before working on it.
Put carpet scraps or another soft material under the front legs before pulling your refrigerator away from the wall. Otherwise, the legs could damage the flooring.

Water is leeking from bottom of unit.


If this is a mini split system, with the indoor unit mounted up on the wall, and water is dripping from the coil, I would say that the condensate line has a partial plug. Take a ladder and remove the front cover. It may have screws or just snap in place.You will see a drip tray around the perimeter, and dirt from the foam filter sometimes gets into this tray and will over flow.You may be able to see the plastic drain line going to the out side, and may be able to clear it by blowing through it or using compressed air.You could also lay something on the floor and take a picture of water and try washing the dirt and junk free.Wash the filter out while you have it out.I hope this solves your leak problem, i am confident it will.
Good Luck, Shastalaker7

I have a carrier split unit model#38HDL024311. It's dripping out the front of the unit. When I turn it off, There's a stream of water out the front also.


Where is water dripping? Out the outside unit or inside? Evap. Coils (indoor coils) condense when cooling so it is necessary to have a condensate drain hooked up. If the unit is leaking out of something besides the drain like out of the coil case then you have a blockage in your condesate line either in the drain pan under the coil or somewhere in the line that leads to your drain. blow the line both ways with nitrogen or pull the line out and clean it with a hose.

Refrigerator leaking water on floor under it!


The leak is most likely coming from the defrost tray below the evaporator coils. A piece of ice or something is preventing the water from draining to the pan below your refrigerator. Unplug and remove the back panel inside the freezer. Any blockage from that tray will cause the water to pool out into the freezer or fresh food section. Thanks, Sea Breeze
