I have an intertherm split unit and it is getting water all over
The unit is getting water all over the unit and around it also. The coils have been cleaned, drain hose is clear, and a new tray has been installed. The water is soaking the entire floor around the unit and it has ruined the carpet. What else could be the problem? The unit is in a mobile home and is right next to the hot water heater and is soaking the floor all around and causing rust and mold to form.

Hot water heater has a relief valve on it and should have a pipe going down to the floor stick your finger in the pipe and if it is wet inside the pipe that is your source how old os the water heater dry up the floor with towels and leave a/c of for 24 hours not as wet then possible crack in new condensate pan

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. The first thing to check is the filter in the furnace or air handler. Also check the inside coil to be sure its not frozen up. Does the air coming out feel cold? It sounds like the unit could be low on charge which means it has a leak and should be leak checked repaired and properly charged. You would need refrigeration gauges to put on the system in order to properly check the refrigerant charge in the system. One other thing could be a dirty condenser coil. Turn the power off to the unit and use a garden hose with a strong nozzle and spray water through the whole coil to try and blow any dirt or debris through the condenser coil in the outside unit.
The A coil (Evaporator) is dirty and needs cleaned by a professional. Dirt has clogged the fins in the coil and is blocking most of the airflow through the coil so the air has to go around the coil picking up the water as it does and sending it everywhere.
Has a service tech remove and clean your coil and reinstall it and your problem will be solved.
replace it it's junk - going to do that this time because this is the fourth year of the same problem on the hottest days this intertherm junk downflow ac unit condensates where it will not and con not be captured by the pan - built by relatives of the guy who designed the titanic -
at night disconnect power use flash light and mirror check to see if coil is stopped up if unit is up flow coil fan heat kit make sure there is a trap in the drain line or unit will pull air into system most likley cause is dirty coil hope this helps unit could also have dirty fan blades low air flow or starting to freeze the coil due to low freeon charge if down flow supply duct under unit ths is not good due to heat kit on bottom of unit can get wet! hope this helps with your problem
soundls like the condensate drain is clogged and coil is dirty. look for a plastic pipe inlet where water would flow to.. you may be able to clear it by blowing it out with compressed air. you can also pour bleach into it to address the mold problem. if the coil is icing up it is because it is dirty. to verify this, let the unit run in ac mode for about an hour and check to see if you have air flow from the vents. if you do not, then the cooling coil is covered in ice, thus blocking air flow. you should have a qualified ac person clean the coil and check the refrigerant charge on the unit. one thing to consider, change your ac filter often, at least once a month in hot weather.
That's not going to cut it. You can't just stick a coil on a system. You will need model # of furnace and most importantly the model # of the outdoor unit in order to find a coil that is an appropriate match; otherwise, you will probably end up shooting yourself in the foot and spending alot more in the long run to fix mistakes. I recomend contating a local professional to help you.
