I was invited to inspect a new Lennox this morning. It is recently installed and leaking water.
Model # CB29M-41-2G
Serial # 5804M01466
Location is Austin, TX.
Application, school classroom.
I read the instructions and found everything to be in order. This system is being operated in horizontal position, right hand blow. It comes from factory to be installed as is. (according to instructions).
I checked for the diverter plate over the coil and it is oriented correctly.
I pulled the cover, found small amount of water in plastic pan underneath coil.
Fan sucking air in correct direction. (these are 480V units)
Drain line running free.
I set my level on system and found she is leaning towards the drain pipe itself, ever so slightly.
So tell me, how is water getting onto the floor?
It is showing up on the floor BEFORE the air filter!!!
When I pulled the filter, it was dry inside.
The system has a large secondary pan underneath the forsed air unit itself. And this water is showing up outside of the pan. While the pan itself has minor amount of water inside.
I dont usually investigate water related issues in these systems... this is a unique problem. Several guys have already looked at it and nothing has come from it.
Thanks for the help, in advance.
