    Hot in Florida - Trane Condensation Issue

    I'm having a problem with our Trane TWE030P13FBO electric AC unit. Hadn't started it up in a year and last night we decided to fire it up. Worked great for a day but now it's stalled. Condensation inside the unit has drenched the filter at the bottom and cold air has ceased. I'm a licensed Architect and General Contractor and I'm not about to do any work on this unit but likely will call a service technician. Also seriously considering the purchase of a new unit. This one is ten years old but used sparingly. Any experience out there with this unit that can shed light on this issue would save me a bunch of time and effort. Is this machine near dead or just suffering from a flesh wound? Thanks in advance.

    Time for new unit if your freon is leaking or some serious maintenance should straighten it out.

    Sounds like it is/was frozen up and water is dripping from the ice onto your filter. Could be as simple as a dirty coil or filter causing it , or could be numerous expensive items. You need a pro to come out and look at it.

    may be that cleaning the coil is what is needed, but you really
    need to call someone who can properly diagnose what is/has
    happened.

    in Fla. you used a/c sparingly???
    if you do replace, check into heat pumps rather than
    expensive electric strip heating. your winter bills
    will be much much less.

    best of luck.

    Is there an overflow pan? Is there water in the overflow pan?
