1 1/2 years old 5 tons leaking yellow rusty water

\015 Is that normal to have a new unit like this leak a lot of yellow rusty water that stain my concrete? I thought that carrier has plastic drip pans. the unit itself has loud noise when it starts, is that normal?\015

Answers :

Most likely yours has a scroll compressor which are notorious for being quite loud on start they will start for years, just a liitle noisy. Is the water from the pvc drain or from the base of the outdoor unit??

Popping/clicking noise My unit is a few years old now. Maybe 5yrs old. It has been making a popping/clicking type noise at random. We take it out of the window in the fall and put it back when it starts to get warm. Last year it leaked a lot of water. But I think that was due to it slanting inwards. It was leaking water again this year (it's in a different window this year) but seems to have stopped that issue. Now it's just this clicking/popping sounds. I want to say it does it in both cool & f

Hello, my HVAC is constantly freezing, even after freon is added. I was told that I have a leak in the coils and need to chance the air handler - the outside unit is about 10 years old - air handler about 18 years old. I would like to get only the air handler for my R22 outside condensing unit. My question is if in the future can I use this same 3.5 ton air handler with a new 410 condensing unit once my outside unit needs to be replaced. In other words can a Goodman air handler be used firs

The excess water is draining into the catch pan and then outside. Is this an early sign of the unit in need of being replaced, or what can i do to fix the problem

My 3-year old LG air-conditioner was leaking water. So i called some 'experts' to come fix it. This is the first time I called for maintenance service on the air conditioner. The 'experts' dismantled some parts of the air-conditioner and washed out a lot of dirt and sticky stuff. After they put the air-conditioner back, there was no more water leaking but I noticed 2 new problems. When I switch on the air conditioner, the mouth does not immediately swing open, it takes about 3 minutes before it


White snow.. I had this issue when 2 inside unit electrical lines were hooked up backwards at the compressor. The compressor would pump too often and overcool the inside unit, because it was using the wrong temperature sensor. But you could have a ... LG LS-L1210CL Mini Split Air Conditioner

I have a fedders (piece of junk)3 1/2 ton 4 year old unit. It runs fine during the evening after it cools off, but during the day it constantly cuts off and on unless I am spraying it with water. As soon as I stop spraying water it starts cutting off and on again. We have checked and tried everything we have been told and nothing is working.


Sounds like your compressor is overheating is the compressor sweating down the sides? If it is you may have an airflow problem clean filters, clean blower fan motor and the evaporator coil. if this does not work you will need to have someone put a s ... Fedders A6P09S2A Air Conditioner

Epoxy wont hold you need a new coil. about 8 to 12 hundred depending on your location. If it is 10 years old I would suggest you change the air handler. You will get a lot more efficient unit. Cost about 2200 but you will get a 10 year warranty from ... Air Conditioners

I have a 11 year old, 2.5 ton trane package unit at my home. the tech added refrig 3 weeks ago because the unit was freezing up. coils still freezing up. air coming through vents only getting down to 70f. tech came back last friday. trane said there must be something (trash) in lines. tech evacuated system, purged lines and recharged. air from vent only gets down to 74f now. compressor seems to be working fine. i just thawed coils with water. they were frozen completely.


After the tech added refrigerant, did the coil freeze up after he left, or was it a day or more before it started freezing again and are you running the unit on high cool? You either have a leak, which would usually take some time to leak out enough ... Air Conditioners

I have a 4 ton Ruud HVAC system that is two years old. It is a 13 SEER unit. It is tilted slightly to the front of the evaporator to aid in draining the condensate. Two days ago, my daughter came home after being gone for a week. My wood floors are buckled and she has a large amount of mold in her bathroom cabinets. I had my HVAC man go by and he told me that no condensate was coming out of the evap unit. I asked him if it was blowing too hard and possibly blowing the water down the duct. He sai

Have a 15 year old Ruud 2.5 ton condenser that broke down (one of 2 units - the other is still working fine0. The furnaces are 4 years old. They are interconnected - not zoned for our 4200 sq. ft. house. Do i need to replace BOTH condensers because of the freon 410 requirement? Also thinking of going to a 3 ton since the upstairs is never very cool when its hot out. Would this help? If we go to 3 ton, do I need to replace the 2.5 that's working at the same time?


I am not sure what you mean by "interconnected". Basic cooling capacity should be figured on 1 ton of cooling per 500 sq. ft. of space. That would be 4 tons per 2000 sq. ft. You currently operate on 5 tons totally. You require 8 tons of cooling. Othe ... Ruud UAKA042 Air Conditioner

Your air temp should be at least 20 degrees cooler than the indoor air temp. This is ideal. But it sound like your unit is low on freon. When units get low they will freeze up. They will also freeze up if air flow is restricted on the inside coil or ... Carrier 38CKC024 Air Conditioner
