Air conditioners don't need water. if it is runnibng properly and blowing cold air it will produce water on the condensing coil. Look at the coil. If you see a lot of ice, turn the unit off and wait until the ice melts. If the ice returns it is probably low on freon. This must be taken care of by a licensed air conditioning tecnician.

The unit is probably low on freon and so it is running too cold....this trips the freeze stat and shuts down the compressor till it warms up and you reset it by turning it off and then on again...
The unit will need to be recharge or replaced...

Here isa tip that I wrote about how to add refrigerant to a air conditioner or coolingsystem

first try to tilt it more to the outside if this does not fix the problem the drain holes are plugged between the inside coil and the outside and possibly the hole on the outside. Its usually best to remove the unit and wash it out outside. try not to get water on the switches.

ice forming on the evaporator coil (you called it ac tubes) is a common sign of 'low' air flow across the coil.

The evaporator coil will 'ice' if the air flow is restricted.

This usually happens when the filter and or coil becomes dirty.

If the filter is changed often (when dirty) then the chances of the coil becoming dirty are reduced.

In any event - you must have a 'clean' filter and a clean coil.

The filter is usually made to be 'washed out,' and the coil can be cleaned with a wrag - or brush of some sort.

The goal is to make sure the filter and coil are both clean.

Other things can cause a coil to 'ice,' but are less likely.

a) low on refrigerant - not likely because the system is 'sealed' and the chances of losing gas are remote unless it's an older AC and has been 'opened' in the past - which improves the chances of a leak.

b) a problem with the fan motor - i.e. cutting off and then back on - or - not running as fast (both will reduce the air flow) as it should because of internal problems.

c) in a room with a 'low' load - i.e. the outside temp is low and the room is cool - thus causing a low load situation. This too is not likely as most AC's are being run because it's hot in the room.

Bottom line - is I would make sure my filter and evaporator coil are both clean and unrestricted.

good luck!

Wow, You will need to get with a mechanical engineer, take a set of plans to him, he will need the cubic feet of the building, lighting load, ect.
This something that you don't want to wing it.
Good Luck,

Constant 1.08 is a percentage of outside air being brought into a building or space you want to cool.

Most public or commercial building hvac use a outside air damper to allow fresh air to come in,allowing this air in will cause a constant load or heat.say its 92.f outside this 92.air will constantly be coming in and will need to be cooled.

Hope ive helped.

i think the evaporator needs some cleaning.

LG BG8000ER Air... | Answered on Aug 23, 2009

There should be a small silver canister, ( a capacitor) close to or on the fan, this is designed to give the fan a 'kick' to start, try replacing this, be sure you have the correct one as there is one for the compressor also,
good luck
