water leaking out heating furnace


yes 3 to 4 separate call back trips to get the water leakage problem resolved. Apparently my furnace service contractor isn't interested in making money.

Amazing! They must like your hospitality.

It wouldn't have taken very long to see water running from a 1/2 or 3/4" tube to the drain. They could have even forced it to drain using a cup or so of water from an external source to test it.

LOL Handyman, that's what happens when a furnace service repair company has a Laurel and Hardy crew. LOL

My respect and esteem for good, experienced, analytical and competent furnace and ac people has grown immensely over this water leakage fiasco.

water leaking out heating furnace


Coleman gas furnace- sounds like we are on the same topic.
I know I have relay that "sticks" keeping blower motor running when AC turns off. I suspect I need to replace board p/n 031-01267-001A, but before opportunity I heard blower running and went to check for sure. Found floor wet and opened face of furnace and found bottom tray of furnace filled with water. I noticed above furnace on stack that contains AC condenser (?) there are 2 ports. One has hose attached and other does not. The one without hose saw water spraying out when I manually turned furnace switch on and stopped when I turned furnace off. Obviously water has been running down inside furnace as I see rust on the trays inside furnace. Need help to understand what is happening and what to do to fix, beside replace board. I can not tell how many hours blower has been running with AC at set temperature.

water leaking out heating furnace


I have a Coleman gas (propane) furnace and soon after it was installed last year, it started leaking water. It turns out that there is a reservoir for the furnace condensation that is plastic that was cracked in several different places and leaking instead of going out the drain pipe. In my case it probably had cracked during shipping or installation (possibly even before shipment). You probably will need to call your hvac company to order/ replace it and/or the drain hose/ pipe.

Your primary drain is clogged up. Clean that out and that will stop the water coming from the backup drain.

water leaking out heating furnace


Hey, Thanks. I finally calmed down and got into furnace issues more.
1. Yes took door off plenum and saw condensation tray. Looks like drainage elbow that comes out of stack got somehow turned up not allowing water to drain throught tube connected to elbow and floor drain. Still do not know what second fitting hole is next to drainage elbow hole? I just put duct tape over it as cool air blows out now.
2. Original issue was blower fan would not turn off so from reading sounded like a stuck relay. Have friend in business and he got me a new board for about $70.00 which we installed. Looks like everything good now! Will watch for drainage of condensation tray for a few days to make sure all is OK. Oh I put level on tray and it was leaning in direction of drainage hole. Also note had system charged about two weeks ago because freon low after 11 years in house. Service guy said freon should not have escaped so must be a leak somewhere. He put a sealer in system, expensive stuff like $170!!!
