Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Troubleshooting My window unit is 3 years old. It is spitting water out of the vents and sounds like it is shaving ice. Could my coils be freezing up, and what do I need to do to resolve this problem? I have turned it off for over 8 hours, but after it runs for less than one hour it starts up spitting water and making noise again.


Answers :

First I would check your air conditioner to see if it is tilted backwards it should drain to the back (outside) . also check to see if the evaporator tray is clear of debris. if it is pluged up water may back up.. let me know and if this don't help we can go deeper..Thanks

We have a FERROLI F30 combi boiler and our DHW runs hot and cold, the boiler is working ok. But when we turn on the hot water tap to run a bath, the water gets hot for a short time before running cold again, we then have to knock off the tap and run it again {normally by running the hot water tap in the wash hand basin until its hot before transfering then to running the bath tap} sometimes it works and other times it doesn't Please can you tell us whats wrong and how to fix it?

Duo Therm dripping water in camper when shut off. My Dometic Duo Therm Ducted AC drips quite a bit of water when shut off after running for several hours on hot humid days. The condensate lines are open. The lines drip steadily while the unit runs. When shut off the lines flow a great deal of water, suggesting that the pan is full. At this point I notice water dripping from the duct work. Thank you for your help!

On a aquastar 125 vp, after the water is turned off on any of the house faucets, the burners continue, and water streams out the pipe on the side of the house.(A pressue relief, pipe I think) I can turn the water on and off a few times, and get the system to shut off.

Water tank full light keeps coming on an shuts the AC off after about 10 minutes on a Amcor A12000E Nanomax Portable Air Conditioner. I drained all the water out of it I could and it does turn back on after I turn it back on and will run for about 10 minutes. Then it beeps 6 or 7 times and the water full light comes back on and shuts it off. There is no more water coming out of it and there is a buzzing when it comes back on but it will blow cold air until it shuts off again. Please help!

No water We have not used the air conditioner for a couple of years.  It is not producing any water.  It has been running for 12 hours, and as I recall, it is suppose to fill up with water after several hours.


If the air conditioner is putting out cold air, don't worry about it making water. You may not have enough moisture in the air to produce more water than it requires. \015\012\015\012In some types of air conditioners, the water taken from ... DeLonghi CF210 Portable Air Conditioner

Does any1 know what to do to fix this problem Thanks and God bless


Your window unit is probably not draining like it needs to. As it sits in the window, there should be a slight tilt to help the water move towards the drain hole. Most newer units now sling condensate onto the condenser coils to help improve effici ... Air Conditioners

I have a new furnace with a humidifier. Both work fine. The trouble is, the water running through the hose to the drain makes a LOUD dripping noise when it runs into the drain. Is there some way to stop the noise besides turning everything off..I have of tying a string to the hose and then the water will run down the string, but I am afraid the string might break and help clog the drain. any suggestions


Not seeing exactly what you have. I am guessing...does the humidifier have a trap on it coming out of the furnace?. Is this some type of over flow from the humidifier? If so...\015\012\015\012 I would suggest run ... Air Conditioners

Furnace I have carrier 8000. We were told the batteries were dead and that was what was causing the furnace to kick off and not run at night, When we get up its 63 degrees but set on 69. If you turn the thermostat off and then on again it will work ok for a few hours. then it happens all over again. you can start it manually but it won't come on by itself, then it runs for a few hours ok and repeats at night it goes off...We repalced the thermostat, but it still is the same.

Air Cools well but after about an hour, water starts coming into the coach through the discharge air side. Unit does not freeze up but if I shut the unit off, the tray that holds the water drains quickly, but doesn't drain well when the A/C is running. I always run it at high speed initially, though when you put the AC on Auto fan, it starts at high speed anyhow. This unit is in a Newmar Mountainaire 40' diesel pusher motor home


Your evaporator is probably dirty and is blocking some of the air flow so the air has to move around the coil and starts coming in through the condensate drain holes. That stops the condensation (water) from draining out the holes because the air is ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

Hello I have an LG window unit, model LWHD8000RY6 I hooked it up yesterday after having it in storage for the winter- dry, clean storage in my basement. It worked for about 2 hours, then the compressor turned off. The fan still runs, all of the display lights & switches function. I can hear the compressor trying to turn on, but it gives a quiet click-hum and then stops. The fan is still running, but no cold air. Any ideas?

My LWHD8000R LG windows unit just started spitting water. It's been operating just fine for quite awhile. I checked the drain pipe area and cannot see any clogging where the pipe attaches (though I have no pipe attached). I opened it up and cleaned it up as well as I could, but it will not stop. It starts building up water again spitting after running for about 15 minutes. It is tilted properly in the window. Any ideas? Can I make some sort of makeshift drain pipe for it?

AC Condenser motor will stop at 1pm but inside unit is still running but no AC. If I turn the AC unit breaker unit off and then an hour later turn it back on. The unit runs fine all day until 1pm.
