Or something could possibly be clogging up the air conditioning drainage line, thus causing an over flow of the receptacle. Another cause may be that the pump motor could have stopped working correctly.
The first thing you should do is find out if one or more of the hoses is leaking. If the air conditioning drain tube is the cause of the problem, you will need to change it, you can aquire the lines at an air conditioner supply or at a home improvement store. You will also need to buy the glue for the particular line you have, make sure you follow the directions.
If the drain line is working correctly then you’ll need to check the electric condensate pump, check to see if it plugged in, now you will have to confirm if it is working. You will do this by putting liquid into the basin.. The water pump, which is turned on by a ball float inside that goes up with the water level, (like what we had in the rear of the toilet when we were children) should start. If it does not, it’s stuck or broken. come on then it’s stuck or it could be it really is broke If itâ€™s stuck, you should be in a position to disconnect it from the power and from the inbound tube, disassemble the top part, and wash it out thoroughly. If itâ€™s quite aged or busted, youâ€™re probably best off replacing it so you donâ€™t have to do this again in the near future.
If you discover that the water pump is running but no water is draining the check valve might be stuck, it really is located right before the discharge pipe. remove the anti-backflow, loosen the ball inside and search for an reason for why it’s stuck. If it appears that a moisture build-up or condensation drain tube is clogged with green algae, remove it if at all possible (you may have to cut it and replace it later with a coupling). I would recommend replacing the line, but you can blow it out or run a wire through it to clean it out. To eliminate the green slime, pour a dilute solution of bleach One part bleach to fifteen parts water into the pumpâ€™s trough and pump it out through the pipe.
Last but not least, Ice could possibly be blocking the tube. If this is the scenario, clean or change your AC filters.
