Question about Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner
My a/c is leaking non stop and the landlord has not helped so i need a fix that i might be able to do. there is no drain outside unless i just have not found it and the electric bill is over 500 dollars a month! The house is flooding and i cant dry it up fast enough. The system is very old and not set on a low temp it stays at about 78 and for some reason will never stop running. We cleaned coils and that did not help us. What can we do to stop the water and lower the bill?
System freeze up and water melting is a primary result of low charge. funny how being low on charge causes freeze up. youd think just the opposite. be assured there is a drain. 90 percent of the time its a pvc or black piece of tubing that exits with the refrigerant lines at the outdoor condensor. look for damp soil or gently dig down with a garden hand tool till you trace ref lines back into the foundation of the house. you will have a little 3/ 8 line for hp liquid, a little 3/8 stat wire and a 3/4" insulated line for suction line. and then a plastic or pvc drain. hook up a good shop vac to the line and suc it out. you should be able to hear good sucking sound inside at the airhandler.you dont mention seeing any ice and if its freezing up ice would form on the suction line eventually all the way back to the compressor? run it 15 minutes feel the suction line . should be cold and sweating like a glass of cold iced beverage. little line should be warm 10 15 degrees warmer than outside temp. is blower wheel clean? i have seen lots of clean coils but if wheel is plugged up air volume is diminished. clean the wheel .you know you really should call a good ac man. call your local ac distributor and ask them who is good , honest, and not out to gouge the consumer. they will tell you.., kind of like being in a strange town and needing surgery, you ask the nurse who would you get to operate on you!

Have a tech properly charge the unit.The water is prolly from an ice buildup.there will be a drain coming out of the evap coil....it may be plugged also.
