Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Drain pan fills quickly

\015 I have a Fedders portable AC model A6PO952BCOM. The water from the drain pan needs to be released every hour.I used the AC all last summer and only had to drain it 3 times all summer. Any suggestions to fix this problem would be appreciated. Thank You\015

Answers :

On the bottom coil there is a small motor with a blade that goes between the coils to sling water//have a fedders unit with the same problem and the little motor was bad
Can you descibe where the unit is located and what climate you are in?\015\012\015\012Thanks

On my LG window AC Md. LWHD1009R, I cannot find a drain hole to let the water out. The back bottom of the pan was filled water containing a rusty sludge, but the heat exchanger coils are aluminum, so it must come from another source.( I have a wooden shutter built over my windows because of hurricanes-nails? ) Is this unit supposed to drain, because I bent down one place to let the rusty sludge and water out. Its properly mounted with the back lower than the front, and I've had no problems with

My air conditioner evaporator housing appears to be clogged. The normal drain line goes to the sewer. When it is not draining properly, a back-up drain line coming from the same evaporator housing, drains to the pan (below the unit). Then the pan drains to a visible outlet on the roof (which signals the home owner that there is a problem). We noticed the roof drain line was draining last weekend, so we checked the pan under the evaporator unit, and it had water in it (which is not normal


If you are sure that it's not the line, you are going to need to get to the drain pan to clean it. Take the cover off (with power off) to access it. It's not that muchto get to it. Use a drill and a socket. Once you get in there you will ... Air Conditioners

The amana ap095r drain pan gets very dirty and mucky... but after unscrewing the back cover so I could vacuum both coils I dont see a way to clean the drain pan. The pan is part of the entire bottom (one big piece of plastic) and I can see the slime but cant clean it. Anyone have any ideas? Why wouldnt they make a detachable pan?

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

I have a Fill-troll model 110 on a hot water boiler. The fill valve seems to allow too much water into the system (>30psi) unless I close the potable water supply valve. I have also observed that when I open the drain valve to release pressure on the system, the pressure drops as expected but after closing the drain valve, the pressure rises again even with the supply valve closed.
