My indoor unit airconditioner located in my basement
It seemed to be just dripping water so i cleaned it up 1 day while cleaning basement i noticed that alot of water was coming out the base. i pushed it with my hand and tons of water came out. why and what is wrong
Re: my indoor unit airconditioner located in my basement
Hi, all a/c's produce water as condensation. Portables have a hose connector near the base. Wall mounted have a permanent hose that allows water to vent out. This pipe can get blocked by dust and fluff usually at the elbow joint. Try useing a small drain cleaning wire or extract all the water out ( i use a big syringe ) and put half a cup full of kettle boiled water in, or a drain cleaner. be sure to flush out well.
Good luck. steve, UK

Freezing up is caused by
•dirty air filter or evaporator coil(indoor coil)
•dirty blower wheel or blower fan blades
•weak or slow blower motor
If air filter and indoor coil are clean may be low on freon. Blower wheels seldom get dirty on window units. Pull unit from window and clean both coils with a water hose. Careful not to get any electrical wet. Let dry for a while and reinstall. If it continues to freeze its a freon problem most the time.
Actually, you may have two issues. The drain hole may be clogged and the rear of the unit may not have enough downward tilt, to allow the water to flow to the rear of the drip pan and ultimately out thru the drain hole. The general rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2" rear downward tilt.
As far as the drain hole is concerned, it can be hard to find at times. Because the clog will often times blend in the drain hole. Patience & persistence are required in locating it. A pipe cleaner works well to clear the clog.
Troubleshooting the above should help to solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.
This could be a couple things but yes I agree you do not need the unit above dripping onto yours.you shuld see if you can get the floor above to help solve it. then it sounds like you may havea wet filter as well. . you can pull the unit out and check the drains under the indoor coil and if you see some slim clean it out and wash it down with a mixture of bleach and soap and some hot water. bet certain that the unit is tiled to the out side about 1 inch or so. If the filter is wet wash it out well with HOT soapy water as well. Thi should help let me know Jon
To get proper cool, keep the tips as follows: 1. Check air filter is cleaned. 2. Check indoor coil is cleaned. 3. Check indoor blower motor is working. 4. Keep in cool mode. 5. Set temp minimum 3 degrees less than room temp.6.Check compressor is working with correct pressure.
Check if the water drain pipe is not blocked. Or if the water drain pipe is not sloping downward away from the the unit. Or if the inside unit is level or slightly tilted to the side of the water drain pipe.
make sure indoor filter and both coils are clean indoor clean with mild spray cleaner and rinse with water same way out side mild spray cleaner rinse with water hose very low pressure to not bend the fins unit should have about 20* difference between air going in and air going out hope this helps
