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

What is the problem when an air conditioner begins to freeze up?

Freezing up is caused by
•dirty air filter or evaporator coil(indoor coil)
•dirty blower wheel or blower fan blades
•low freon
•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.

My Carrier Infinity system Model FE4A is leaking water from the bottom of the unit on to the basement floor. How do I stop the leak?

have your HVAC technician check the pressures in your unit...sounds like you may have low pressure. You should NOT be having any ice build up to melt off.

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 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

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.

Too much water condensation

Check your condensate drain. It could be plugged. Or perhaps you have a crack in the drain pan.
