• Broken condensate pump
The condensate pump is a component within the aircon that helps to discharge water into the condensate drain pan. It can be found below the cooling coil.
When the pump is functioning well, it helps to prevent leaks. However, when it’s broken or malfunctioning, water may overflow and start to drip from the aircon.
• Rusted drain pan
The purpose of a drain pan is to collect water that drips from the evaporator coil.
Due to the presence of air and moisture, drain pans that are made from metal can rust. This rust can subsequently eat away at the metal, causing holes and gaps to form and water to leak from the drain pan.
