Salon A/C in Carver 370 Aft Cabin

Postby bwilson » July 20th, 2015, 12:47 pm

Hey All,

I just discovered soaking carpet in the salon on the port side around the cabinet. I pulled the cover where the a/c unit sets and discovered alot of water in the drip/ condensation pan that I had to sponge out. I could not find blockage in the drain line. I am going to blow compressed air through the line.
Any idea what else could cause the back flow of standing water in the condensation pan?

Thanks

If it's in the pan, the drain must be plugged. Can you get to the drain hole ion the pan? Use very light pressure if trying to blow it out!
You might try a piece of 12ga stranded wire or an electrical fish tape if you have one.
Thanks

Check your sump too, it may not be pumping out and backing up through the condensate drain line.
