ac problem question
ryan

hello everyone

i have a 2.5 ton carrier cental ac system inside handler is the fe4a 300.

im having some problems with it,  it recently started leaking water so it was cleaned ti was dirty but since then i can't get it to work right.

its constanlty leaking water sometimes freezing up etc.

if you put water into the drain pan it flows into the pump and sooner or later the pump will kick on and empty so its not a clogged drain line but it seems when its going slow its leaking out all over as if its somehow going under the drain lines onto the cabines area,  also the bottom part of the ac unit even with secured with the screws can be pushed in right there and you then can see water coming from underneath the panel and sometimes even from the drain line pipes themselves or shoudl say right under then and one time someone even on top of them.

i am at my wits end on this,  its costing me tons of sleep and then when i can get sleep i end up not doin ganything during the early day becasue thats when its coolest out and i can get 4 or so hours or sleep without an over abundent amount of tossing and turning.

i just don't know where to turn from here,  i'd think if the coils was still too dirty and it just seems like something is not lining up right for the water leak and i am not sure if thats causing hte ac to not work right or not.

what happens is we'll turn on the ac and it will start to cool but say its 85 or 86 it will go down 1 or 2 degree's then it will go back up.  sometimes the coils are frozen but most of the time they are not, i am at my wits end.

any suggestions would be appreciated.
