What type of a/c are you working on... do you have a make and model number??

If it is a window unit, it may just need to be tipped back more...

If it is a wall mounted split unit then the hose may be double trapped or plugged...

    Okay...yes, just take the cover off up top on the roof,...then look in around the coil and there should be a way for the water to get out of the pan to the roof of the motor home...
    Often times this little hose or pipe gets plugged with dirt... all you have to do is get it cleaned out so that the water can get away... it should be go out towards the back of the motor home...

Hi, My air conditioner is working, but the warter is leaking inside. It is 3 years old. Any ideas? Thanks.

There is a drain pan under the evaporator coil that has a tube connected to it to drain the water to the rear of the unit where it exits the unit. I suspect that the pan and/or drain tube is filled with gunk. You have to take the front cover and then the metal enclosure off the unit to clean these out.

Our Dometic Duo Therm Air Conditioner leaks inside our trailer.

Hi, hopefully it is just your drain stopped up. If you can climb up on the top of the trailer, on your air cond. unit will be a drain. It will be about 1" around and will be located close to the bottom of the unit. It may have a hose connected to it or it may just drain on the roof. When you find this, see if it is plugged up with dirt, etc. You can stick something up in it to unclog it, but be aware not to jab the coil tubing with what ever you are using. You may be able to use a shop vac or compressed air also.

If it is not stopped up, depending on the age of the unit, the condensate pan, (which hold the water) may be rusted through. You will have to take the top of the unit off and a couple of covers to get to the front coil (looks like a radiator). The pan is underneath the coil.

Hope this helps and I hope it is the easier of the two. Mark

TCL model tac 24chs/k air conditioner is leaking from the

You will want to remove the panel in front of the air handler, usually a few 5/16 screws.
Once open then with a flashlight look down inside where the water collects in the condensate drain pan.
Verify that the pan is not full of water or algae build up.
If it is, then attach a wet vac to your drain outside and while it is pulling on the drain line spray some water inside till it is fully clean.
If it is not full of water then check the pvc pipes that are attached to the drain pan, they may have came loose and may need to be teflon taped and reconnected to the pan. Also verify there are no cracks in the pan.
Lastly inspect the bottom of the evaporator coil (Not the top) pull out the filter and make sure the coil is clean or water could drip down past the pan into your dwelling. Make sure as well that the insulation on your panel that covers the unit is intact and not worn away.

Good Luck!

My air conditioner is leaking water

The air conditioner have water runs into the plastic container and when the container is full of water the weight will switch off the whole unit until you empty this container.
The tube that deliever the water into this plastic container blocked up with dirt that stop the water runs into the container and overfill the condenser drain pan that water runs all over the floor. Clean this condenser pan outlet and the connecting tube then you will be ok.

Coleman tsr rv air conditioner leaks into rv when running

It probably has a clogged condensate drain. Take off the cover on top the RV and check hoses or tubes leaving unit for debris or lint. Often this water is used to help cool the condenser so look for leaves pine needles etc in the pan. There may be a cover you can remove on the evaporator section that will allow you to clean the collection pan and hose or trough. Is it possible the RV is far enough out of level that the condensate can't "run uphill"? Always power off while working on this unit unless you are electric savvy. Good luck!

Fujitsu wall mounted air conditioner leaks into the room

Make sure the unit is level, this is very important. Check for blocked drain tube, which runs from the bottom of the drain pan under the cold coil to the outside. Clear tube with a piece of coathanger wire, be gentle.
