Hi,
On many of the newer units you can have the option of the unit draining or not draining....
If the drain plug is not punched out then the water will build up and the fan will splash the water onto the condenser coil and cause evaporation that way....it is not necessary to drain them...just make sure they are tipped back in the window a bit so the water does not run inside...
Of course if you want to drain them you can look for the plug and punch it out allowing the water to run out... it is usually in either of the back bottom corners of the pan...

N0 there is not drain hole. Newer A/C units throw the condensation water up to the hot condenser coils outside to help cool down the coils.

My air leaks both in and outside of home why? could drain tube be pluged and how do i go about fixing it.


It's no so much a drain tube as it's a drain hole. It located under the drain pan, near the rear of the unit.
However, since you have indicated it's draining on the outside, it's probably a case of the rear of the unit not being tilted down enough. Which doesn't allow the water to flow to the drain hole as it should.
The general rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2" rear downward tilt.

Hope this helps to solve the problem and thanks for choosing FixYa.

The dishwasher is not completing it's cycle and doesn't seem to drain at the end.


Hi
This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

The water doesn't drain through the site to which I attached the hose. Instead it drains through a quarter inch hole (which appears to be a manufaactured hole, not a crack or break)to the right of...


It sounds like the unit should have came with a plug for the hole. You can probably obtain a plug from a home improvement or hardware store or even improvise one yourself. Also, make sure the unit is pitched so that the water actually runs towards the hose.

Leaking inside. Fedders A3X05F2A-J Unit is sloped away from house. Have sprayed coils. Doesn't seem to be drain hole at back of unit


Mellisia, the problem very well may be, that the drain pan hole under the unit, on the outside may be clogged. When that happens, water backs up and leaks out the front of the unit.The drain hole should be near one of the corners of the drain pan. And with Fedders, it may be on the edge/lip of the drain pan. The clog, may appear to be part of the drain pan and that's why you haven't noticed it.

Inspect the drain pan closely. If you can't find it. You can create one, by CAREFULLY drilling a hole at one of the corners of the drain pan. It doesn't have to be a large hole 1/8" to 1/4" should do.Be sure the unit is OFF and unplugged from the wall, before attempting this. Also, once the drill bit penetrates the drain pan STOP. You don''t want the drill bit to pierce the coils on the back of the unit.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

My unit doesn't drain. isn't there a rear port or hole that water should drain from?


There is no drain on some of the newer ones,that plug into a 110 outlet.Look on the bottom of the case,to the rear of the unit.If it has a drain the case will have a small hole in it.

I have a Kenmore sise by side refrig on the left (freezer side) it ices up on the bottom


the drain is blocked.slime builds up in the drain line and then the water freezes in the line,unplug the fridge,melt out all the ice at the bottom of the back panel,you'll see a drain hole there,i use a steemer to blow through the drain line,if you don't have a steemer hit the hole with the hair dryer for a while,then pour hot water into the hole,if the water doesn't drain down the hole try using a turkey baster to blow out the line,or you can try to snake something down the drain hole but be careful,it's made of plastic,when you think it's clear pour hot water down the hole again if it doesn't drain keep hitting it with the hair dryer until the water drains down the hole,sometimes it takes like an hour to free it.

Water is leaking into the refrigerator from the freezer it seems to be worse when the ice maker is on


if it's worse with the ice maker on i'd have to say the ice maker is leaking but normally the water is from a blocked drain in the freezer.unplug it,remove everything out of the freezer,pull off the inside back wall of the freezer,melt out all the ice with a hair dryer,next you'll see a hole under the evap coil,that's the drain,you have to free it up,i use a steemer to blow down through the drain but if you don't have a steemer keep heating up the area where the drain hole is,you can try using a turkey baster to blow through the drain,when you think the drain is clear pour hot water into the drain hole,if it goes down you're done,if it doesn't keep heating it until the water drains down the hole.also open the fridge door,in the top of the fridge in the middle of the ceiling and where it touches the back wall you'll see a mold,that's also the drain,heat that area up with the hair dryer to melt out the ice in the drain.the problem is slime builds up in the drain,when the fridge goes into defrost the heater comes on and melts the ice off of the evap coil and the water goes down the drain and into the drip pan on the bottom of the fridge,your drain is blocked and the water is leaking into the fridge,the drain has to be cleared.good luck with your machine.if i can help you with anything else let me know.
