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.

Water dripping out of Mr. Slim on indoor unit.


Reason for water leaking.
1. Filter block. 2. Cooling coil block. 3. Alignment of indoor a/c unit is sloping downwards. 4. Drain pan block. It's advisable to service your unit first.

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.

What is the btu of this model.m7q08f2a.


Hi, to find out the tonnage of your unit in b. t. u.'s, look at the 08 in your model number. There are 12,000 btu's per ton of cooling. You have a window /wall unit, and according to the model # 08 is not a 1/2 ton or a 1 ton, but a 3/4 ton unit or 8,000 btu's if indeed this is the correct model number. Most units we come across are in btus as 06 which is 1/2 ton, 12,000 is 1 ton, 018 is 1 1/2 ton and on up with a properly matched indoor coil. Your unit is a package window unit, so both coils are equal.
Sincerely,

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.

Carrier air handler tonnage?


That is a fairly large difference. It is usually ok to have the inside evap. coil and blower up to 1 ton larger than the outside condenser. That will make the unit slightly more efficient as well as less likely to freeze up on low airflow situations. It is not recommended to install a new condenser on an old evap coil. There has been a lot of changes to the design of the coils in the last little while. For example a 10 year old 2 ton coil may only have 3 cubic feet of volume but a new 2 ton coil may have 4 cubit feet of volume.

There are many factors that may have infulenced the decision on what size condenser to install. Many of which can only be done by visiting the home and doing alot of work, checking the duct sizing bioth supply and return, inspecting the insulation and windows of the home etc. etc. Most of the time that never gets done. You can blame the contractor for not doing a complete check, but at the same time you can blame the customer because many contractors that are that good loose the job to a cheaper bid that did not no any of the research. It is a catch 22 for everyone involved.

There is ALOT more to sizing equipment that many people think, sadly that also includes many HVAC contractors. Way too many people use "rule of thumbs" or flat out "guess".

Sorry for the rant but your queston can only be answered by a good well educated HVAC contractor visiting your home. That type of a contractor is getting hard to find these days in such a price competetive world.
