Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

My Daewoo DSB 091L unit has started to drip condensate from the casing joint underneath the front drainage tray. I have cleaned the blocked drain pipe and proved the water drains away. The condensate drip seems only to happen during the compressor is in cooling cycle. Maybe the flexible drain pipe is perished. How do I change the flexible drain pipe?


Answers :

Make sure that the flexible pipe is securely connected to the drainpan, it can come adrift and cause leaking. The way to check this is to make sure everything is dried out completely. Then open the front grill and carefully pour water so that it goes only into the drip pan. Pour slowly so that you do not overflow the pan. If water is coming out on the outside and you have no leaks on the inside, then you can rule out the perished or disconnected drainpipe theory. In this case your unit may be short of refrigerant causing excessive run time and a freeze up of the evaporator.

Water leaks out of bottom tray of unit, instead of draining through the drain pipe outlet. Seems to have a blockage to the drainage of the water condensation. Any advice on how to unblock the problem? Thanks. Wong


Carefully, run a flexible, yet sturdy wire down through the drain tube. While doing this, move the wire up and down slightly. This will help dislodge any accumulation of debris. The other option is, if you have an air compressor, blow a strong burst ... DeLonghi Air Conditioners

I have a heat pump with the unit under the house. We have noticed our power bill has increased. After crawling under the house I notice the drip pan is full and not draining through the pipe. So I unclogged it and it drained fine, but my next issue is, why would the return duct have about 3 gallons of water sitting inside the pipe making it sag. So what can I and need to do to fix this. I have been covering the ducts to cover the leak that I found but this water in the pipe has me baffled. Pleas


Hi, this sounds as though you just have a backed up condensation line that you opened up the drain, and you say it drained fine. As far as the return air duct having water in it, it is connected to the return side of the evaporator coil and it just o ... Air Conditioners

I have a Tempstar NFCP3600/A1. There appears to be two condensate drains. The main one is plumbed to the outside. There is another drain next to it and it is pointed down and drains into the garage where the unit is hanging. I guess the secondary drain is an overflow drain, maybe not. I have cleaned out the primary drain by using a vacuum. That solved the problem temporarily. There is definitely water draining to the outside from the main pipe. Would you suggest plumbing the two together

Our frigidaire window a/c unit (model faa067p7a) does not seem to be operating properly. There is no condensate forming anywhere (beneath the coils is dry and no evidence of water and there is no water coming out of the tube under the coils into the styrafoam drip area). Everytime we run the unit it cools the room to a degree but the humidity also goes way up. I tried the reset button on the power supply but that didn't seem to have any effect. Any ideas?


It sounds like your unit is low on freon or the compressor is not kicking in. If the compressor kicks in you can hear it turn the unit on fan only or turn the thermostat off then turn the unit to demand cool you should hear a hum even vibration when ... Frigidaire Compact Air Conditioner

Room AC unit condensation drains into room, not outside. There are no obvious drain holes on the underside of the unit. I've drilled to create some, but condensation still comes in. The unit has a definite slope away from house, so that doesn't seem to be the problem. Any suggestions are welcome.


Hi, if this unit does not have any weep holes as they are called, you should have a small diameter soft plastic drain tube connected from the inside coil where the condensation forms to outside that is plugged. You should have a trough that the conde ... Haier 5200 BTU Window Air Conditioner White

I have a unit in the attic and another part outside. I can stand inside under the ceiling vent and hear water running. When the unit cuts off, the water sound quits. I'm afraid something is not draining right. The drain pipe that leads to the outside is dripping a little. I've tried a shop vac to suction out any obstruction but it didn't help.


Sounds like your drain has sagged from the heat in the attic. It then backs up in the pan and sloshes around from the air moving. Get up there and see if that is the case, if so support the drain line so water runs freely to outside. This is an exper ... Air Conditioners

I have a unit in the attic that is installed in the attic horizontally. The condensation leaks out the unit into the overflow pan. I have had the drip pan replaced as it was cracked, the overflow line adjusted to insure positive drainage and no sags and raised the unit so it maintained positive slope towards the drain pan. I also made sure the drain line is not plugged by pouring bleach water down it and after a period of time, blew compressed air through it. What else could be the problem.


It sounds like to me that the leak is coming from inside the unit(air handler) possibly your evaporator coil is icing up and causing a build up of water just below where the 3/4" P.V.C. drain line connects. Instead of draining out the line, it is fin ... Air Conditioners
