GE SPLIT UNIT

Hello, I have had a GE split air conditioner for about 6 years. The unit has started to leak water in the last 3 summers. The drain seems to be clear. I also have a problem in that the unit does not rest against the wall (flush) The install was by the book but we couldn't seem to get it "tight". Seems like there is not enough room for all the piping and "padding " in the channel. Could this be causing the water not to go into the pan properly? If so, how can I getthis unit to hang flush. thanks, Randy

    I have installed 12000 BTUH split unit AlC a couple of months ago. I've been suffering from water leaking from the wall unit since tha last week. The maintenance company won't come to fix it before 14 days. Befeor that date, the unit was performing satisfactorily without any leak. I doubt the possibility that drain pipe is clogged since the ALC has not been in operation for quite a long period to cause clogging.

    The drain pipe cannot be raeched without a rope- ladder.

    How can I solve this problem?

I would check the unit to ensure that it is draining towards the pan assy. should be 1/4" per foot.

My outside toshiba split system is leaking a lot of water


If the unit is on heat mode, the outside unit is the "cold" end... Sometimes if the ambient air temperature is very cold ( Under 5 degrees C), the outdoor unit can start to ice up. If it ices up too much, the air con will automatically go on to a defrost cycle where the outdoor unit will heat up and melt the ice. Water is then drained out the bottom.. its the opposite of what happens in the summer when the indoor unit has water running out of the drain hose. Especially on humid days..

Unit is leaking underneath and onto my carpet....


Check your manufacturers warranty to establish warranty period and also Sam's customer service to see if they will support you. Hose and
connector need to be replaced to eliminate moisture. This can breed
mold if not properly addressed.

MY split ac is leaking water from the wall unit, it has been doin


Usually an AC unit builds up condensation. If you have a drain hoole or hose that is clogged up therefore not allowing the build up to drain off it will spill over the top of whatever housing the condensation goes into. If you can look for that issue first.

LG Split Ac-Sprinkles water in roomafter a while of cooling


first check to make sure that the indoor unit is very slightly off level sloped to the drain area also turn off power and inspect the indoor coil with a flash light to make sure all the fin area is open the drain pan has two possible drain connections if they are both hooked up then the primary "lowest"
could be stoped up a blast of water or air to the drain line should clear out slime also make sure their is a trap in the drain line or the water will only drain dwhen unit is off hope this solves your problem thanks

Working right and in a safe manner?


The condensation has to be going somewhere if not out the drain tube, if unit is working correctly, just hope it's not running down inside your window frame and rotting something. Keep looking, I would.

We purchased a Whirlpool portable air conditioner in 2005 from Best Buy. Near the end of last summer the air conditioner started leaking water. We started using it again this season and it is still...


Check to see if the drain is blocked by particles/debris of any type. Also make sure that the unit is level--as level as possible. I have my Whirlpool Portable AC in 4 inch bed risers so I can drain it really easily. I slip under a small low rise pan and drain it every two days or so when it is running. Mine leaked when I tried to incline it backwards to make it drain faster. As soon as I leveled the unit the leak stopped and water again came out the hose. These units must be kept level to prevent leaks so now I always do that.

APE08AK GE Portable Room Air Conditioner isn't draining


I had the same problem and unscrewed and removed the back cover (AFTER I UNPLUGED THE UNIT) and noticed there is a small black tube that the drain tube connects to. Mine was broken off track and I had to physically remove the small black tube, put it back in it's place and super glued new tabs along the side so it would tilk back and drain the water in the bucket vs. the floor via the unit.
Hope this helps.
