Doesn’t looks like a issue, some water does comes out from outlet pipe and that is expected

If you are expecting more water, try cleaning the cooling coils and make sure water outlet isn’t clogged.
Also keep in mind, the amount of water coming out depends on air humidity too. In dry heat, don’t expect much water

Kindly check if the ac has aluminium or copper condensor ?
If aluminium, then it’s prone to issues if not used for months.
Try normal cleaning first, as mentioned by other members.
In case of aluminim condensor, get it replaced with copper condensor (possible after lockdown).
Had the same issue of leakage in my aluminim condensor ac, over a period of time ac lost cooling, so had to change the condensor.

My ac is 2 years completed. It’s Cooper condenser. I don’t know what to do.

Over time all coils accumulate dust and eventually cooling capacity decreases. This results in low water discharge. At best, you can use a little hot water to clean the coils. Also ensure air filters are not clogged. My carrier ac had same issue. After four years, not even one drop of water came out.

Using your ac won’t get damaged, instead it will only work better. Don’t stop using

In that case, the pipe is choked, its a split AC or window?

Better here means keeping it off won’t do any good or make it any cooler.

I can’t understand the issue clearly, but going to reply based on 3 scenarios.

Scenario 1: If no water is coming out the drain pipe, you have a blocked drain. After some more hours of operation, your inside unit will start to leak. If this is the case, suck out the drain pipe with a siphon pump or the adventurous way of using your mouth.

Scenario 2: Less water coming out than usual. The humidity level in the room could be way lower than usual or the drain is going to get blocked soon. Use the sucking solution I mentioned above.

Scenario 3: More water coming out than usual. The humidity level in your area could be way higher than usual or you have gap in windows or door or somewhere which wasn’t there before.

All the above scenarios are not going to damage your AC, but just an inconvenience of leaky indoor unit.

My AC suddenly stopped throwing cold air yesterday night. It was perfectly running & when AC was on yesterday, after few hours of running perfect, it started blowing normal air & not cold air.

Any idea what might be the problem? (gas problem?) Any checks or possible solution?

It is Voltas split ac bought 3 & half years ago.

Hi, I am hoping that the settings on the remote is on cool mode with temperature set lower than the ambient temperature of the room. Try other modes like eco, auto etc.. For each mode selection, wait for 2 minutes to feel any difference. Nothing,then move to steps below.

Switch off the AC, unplug the AC cord plug from the wall.
Wait for 2 minutes.
Re-plug the cord and wait near the outdoor unit and ask someone else to switch ON the AC.
Listen or feel the compressor kicks in. It will be a distinct sound than the blower. Reply here about how you felt and listened from the moment you switched ON the AC. Do wait for 5 minutes near the outdoor unit.

My Hitachi AC is leaking from inside , water start coming inside from unit after 1 hour of usage and from outdoor pipe also water is coming and it is not choked……..so what can be the problem? It is only 1 year old AC and that too copper condenser.

Part of that pipe goes inside AC. Check that part could be choked. Also check pipe levelling.

Thanx. No noise is coming from outer unit compressor. I waited for more than 5 minutes. So, now what?

Compressor gone? Or any other check?
