What is the brand and model of your A/C? This can be cause by some rust and small opening on your A/C that will be better for your to do a complete clean and inspection on this unit to make sure no damage parts of the A/C is causing this..

Condensation of water on the evaporator coils in the front of an air conditioner is normal. This water collects in a pan where it is evaporated. On a really humid day, you may notice some is dripping off the unit. A properly installed unit will be tipped slightly back to allow any excess water to drip out the back.

Water leaks onto pass side floor only when it rains. the area under yhe cowel is clean and water runs by the wheel well like it should. leaks when car isnt running

First I would check and see if its leaking for the front window.take a water hose and spray water around the seal of the window and see if it leaks. If it don't then I would take do the same test around door seal and the passanger side window.

Rain water leak

Did you have the windshield replaced recently? This is typically caused by faulty installation of a windshield. Sometimes it can be fixed by adding windshield sealant (polyurethene, not silicone) where the windshield is adhered to the subframe - most likely along the bottom edge.

Back sliding window leaks arond the seal onto the back seat, how can I stop this without replacing the whole unit?

Gary, I had the same problem with my 1999 F150 xcab. I first ran water from a hose over the roof toward the back window. Start at one side and look for water trickles at the top of the window. Don't stop at one place but do the whole window. I found mine leaking at the upper corners and a small trickle at the slider window ends.
I removed my headliner to gain access to the nuts that hold in the window. There are two sets of nuts, one set for the windows molding outside and the other for the window itself. The factory seal was shrinking on the upper corners allowing the water to pour in. The window had to be removed. If you take off the nuts slide a utility knife between the body metal and the window frame, it will release. Be careful not to push too hard on the glass when removing (it may crack the frame and / or the glass itself) just use a steady push and make sure you cut the seal well with your knife.
After you have the window out, clean off the old seal with a plastic scraper so as not to damage the window frame surface, then clean with rubbing alcohol. Do the same with the tucks cab metal where the window seals to the cab. Be sure NOT to scratch the paint. If you so you will need to touch it up before you reinstall the window. Check your window for stress cracks in the frame. You can seal them with the butyl tape you will get at the parts store. If you cna't seal the stress cracks you will have to replace the window. You can also seal sround the outer edge of the window frame between the glass and the inner edge of the window frame that mounts against the truck body. The butyl tape should work for that as well, it is self adhesive.
Go to your local autoparts store and get new sealing material (butyl tape 1/4" or smaller). It comes in a roll. Place the seal around the edge of the window frame, making sure the tape is on the outside edge of the studs, and place the window back in the opening. (hold the window in by opening the slider) and replace the nuts on the inside. Snuggly tighten the nuts starting from the closest to the centers and working your way to the outside corner nuts. Once you have the window reinstalled you can water test your window right away, the sealer is waterproof immediately. If the window is sealed you may reinstall the headliner and any panels you had to remove.

Water on my floor

Is it the bottom or coming out the door at the bottom? When your seal is bad it will leak, mine leaks only on handwashables and delicates. I have had to have my seal replaced twice in the three years i have had one, and the last seal was not put on right and leaks.

There is a water leak somewhere in my 98 toyota camry that leaks into my passenger side floor. There is no sun roof and no visible leaks from the windows or doors. Any thoughts? A/C leak maybe? water...

I am the original owner of camry xle 1998 with wet floors. In 2000 I had drivers side door seal leaking at welt. Removed old door seal and new weather strip on drivers side installed. The door panel was never wet, but wet at bottom of door where there are drain holes...slowly leaking under carpet.
In 2001 later water again. Coming from overflowing A/C evaporator-drain plugged/ tank full of debris. Removed evaporator, cleaned + drain cleaned.
In 2003, driver door seal against window rotted. Removed door panel and found leak at window belt molding at the mirror joint inside + out. Lots of mold under carpet needed to replace! Made a fuss at dealers for reacurring problem and they replaced the carpet for free.

Sub-Zero 550 water dripping on right side of freezer forming ice on draw

I had a similar issue that started about a year ago with my Sub-Zero 550. My freezer gasket actually tore after several times of freezing closed. I thought that a new gasket would solve it, but a second but related problem developed where I was getting alot of condensation under the left side of the unit, with the water dripping onto the floor...eventually staining the hardwood floor in front of the unit.

I traced the problem to a clogged condensation drain pipe in the refrigerator. It is a corrugated pipe that drains a trough behind the crisper drawers. My pipe was clogged with black sludge and frozen down below. The condensation in the fridge would overflow out of the trough and leak below the crisper drawers, down out through the gasket.

To resolve, I used a piece of solid thin wire folded in half and twisted with a small loop at the end to fish out as much sludge as I could. Then squirted hot water into the pipe until it totally unclogged. I believe this will solve the problem without any need for a heater underneath the unit. The 550 worked fine for 4-5 years before this happened.
