Toto air conditioner

I'm not sure if this unit has a condensate pump. If it's located below grade and drains to the outside it likely should have one. The condensate pump may be bad or the pressure switch that activates the pump is bad. The pressure switch measures the amount of water in the condensate collection tank. It serves the same purpose as the float in a toilet. Also, check the condensate hose at the inlet of the pump. It could be a bad pump, a leak in the the collection tank, or a clogged hose.

The unit is leaking

Sounds like your main condensate drain line has clogged and either there was not an auxilary drain line installed and it is leaking out of the pan OR the float switch has gone bad OR you have a metal drain pan and it has rusted out and leaking water. The problem is definetly in your main condensate drain line somewhere. There is a problem not allowing your condensate water to go out of the pipe as designed and it is leaking unto your floor or ceiling or wherever it is located. I hope this helps!

Our A/C unit when running, the drain water isn now backing up and leaking over the side in our basement. we've never had this problem before.

Hello, this usually indicates a clogged condensate line or cracked condensate pan. Try using a wet/dry by attaching one end of it to the otlet of the comdensate line, the suction pressure should dislodge the clog. If the line appears clean the the pan is cracked and will require a technician to come out and fix it.

How do you clean the coil, and clear condensation lines?

You can buy some cleaner at a heating and air supply that doesn't have to be rinsed off to clean the evaporator coil. You just spray it on the indoor coil and normal condensation takes care of rinsing. I use a shop vac to clear the condensate drain. I hook it the drain line outside and let it pull all the muck out. A little Clorox in the condensate pan every now and then will help keep it clear(1 to 2 tablespoons). You can also buy cleaner for the outdoor coil and can rinse the coil with a hose. It's best to rinse from the inside to outside.

I have a York Diamond 80 air conditioner/heating unit. How do I stop the water from leaking every where?

the condensate line from the coil must be blocked. Use compressed air to clear the lines. Or possibly a crack in the condensate pan where the fitting goes in or not sure if it is old enough but the older coils had steel condensate pans that will rust through

Water leaks out all over the floor from the window air conditioner

you need to make sure of two things.

1) the AC is 'tilted backwards' just a little bit - to allow the water (condensate water from the evap coil) to drip from the bottom of the AC - out the 'condensate drain hole' - sometimes into a drain hose (usually rubber) or just through the hole to somewhere outside where it doesn't hurt anything.

2) make sure the - condensate drain hole, and drain hose - (if one is used) is clear and not clogged up - to allow the condensate water to drain.

hope this helps

Trying to find drainage system/idea for ac unit

You can install a condensate drip pan under it and attach a hose to take the water wherever you wish. Drip pans are standard A/C components -- you should be able to get one at an HVAC supply store.

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.

Furnace is leaking water

This is not a lot to go on.

I assume since you called it a furnace, you have hot air heat and central air conditioning. If so, the only way a furnace/AC unit can generate water is by condensing moisture from the air. This is common to all air conditioning and removes humidity from your home. If so, this water, called condensate, must drain. The condensate is collected at the AC cooling coil that is typically located on top of a vertical upflow furnace or downstream of a horizontal furnace. If the drain is clogged, it will overflow and create a mess in and around the furnace. If this is your problem, cleaning and clearing debris may solve the issue. I suggest starting with the easiest accessable part of the drain path. You may need to open the panels enclosing the AC coil and clean the small pans at the bottom of the coil and clear openings from above that look similar to a laundry tub drain. If you get that far and find rust holes in the pan, repairs are needed. If you have an electric condensate pump that may also be the cuprit and require cleaning. Check and clear all drain lines from the coil connection to the final dicharge - sump pit or outside.
