the inside unit should be mounted with a slight tilt to the outside - so the water can drain outside.
also - be sure your drain hole (in the unit) is not plugged - either with dirt/debris.

Drain Pan overflowing and water is leaking in refrigerator I can see drip pan overflowing but I do not know how to get to it


remove the back panel inside the freezer,then defrost the pan,then take a length of stiff wire and clear out the drain line from there down to the pan in the lower area near the compressor,as theres probably lime,mold growth build up in the drain line plugging the hose restricting draining of defrost water

Water is dripping from the left bottom edge of the plastic facing on the side by side Frigidaire stainless steel refrigetator (Model GLHS268ZDS7). How would take the facing off to inspect the water valves?


Have to see if there is water overflowing in the drain tank from defrost section that is leading to the water dripping.
It can also be the leak from the plumbing lines to the fridge , if so you will have to remove and reset the pipe connectiion so as the leak stops using good silicon tape as bandage.

Excessive water dripping from Central A/C drian line


sounds like the overflow drain is picking up the water that means the main drain is clogged.you need to find the main drain pipe if lookin at the air handler in attic there should be 2 drains from unit one higher than other follow it and blow out drain they put the other overflow drain out the eve so if it stars leaking someone notices it and it doesnt damage cieling but it sound like it needs imediate attention befor it does go to the overflow pan and damage your cieling. i hope this helps and good luck

The feeder tube for the ice maker freezes and water leaks inside


First we have to determine if the problem is a faulty water valve. Reason: faulty water valve can continue to supply water even after the IM or door dispenser is finished calling for water causing a drip feed freeze up problem, or water overflow condition in the ice maker (IM). Another common cause is unrelated, but caused by a blocked drain line often resulting in thick ice build up on the bottom of the freezer, water dripping onto the floor, or water dripping into the refrigerator (top freezer mount models only) and freezing near the lights or damper ducts after defrost. Fix for this problem is to remove evap panel and clear freezer drain line with hot water or compressed air. If this is not the case, and water is dripping out of IM supply line, remove IM H20 supply line from IM at back of appliance and see if the water seems to drip out, if so, replace the water valve. If water doesn't drip out at all, replace IM, or IM module depending on the model of refrigerator that you have as contacts in the IM are also responsible for calling for H20 supply. You will have no more problems after this.

Hi, I have water dripping from my a/c, on the inside


The condensate drain line is probably clogged.

Find out where the pipe exits the home, and attatch a wet/dry shop vack to the end of the drain line, close it up around the pipe as much as possible and trun it on.

These typically get clogged with dust, dirt, pet hair, mold etc.
They usually clog at the elbows, P-traps and the inlet coming from the drain pan. There is an internal drain pan in the unit that catches the condensation. When the line clogs the pan overflows and you have water dripping from the unit.

There is also a small chace the pan has a hole in it, but thats fairly rare. There is also a chjance that if the unit is not level the water will overflow the pan before it can drain. (most pans are only 1 to 2 inches deep.) Make sure the unit is level or veryslightly lower toward the drain side.

Water leaking from refrigerator


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

If you just want to clean it you may can access it from the rear behind the cardboard backing. If it's overflowing your water filter may be stopped up or you may have had an excessive amount of frost one time.
