Finding out if your evaporator coil is bad can be a pain but you have to take care of it first. First you have to start by finding out what is going on with your evaporator coil. You will be able to locate your evaporator coil with a drop of water in it’s place. The best way to find out if your coil is bad is to remove it to make sure that it is not doing any damage to your home’s foundation. When you are removing the evaporator coil, you will need to take out the filter and the box that contain the coil and then you will need to turn it upside down. After you turn it over, you will be able to take the top part off.
You will notice that there are three wires coming out of the top of the coil. Take the top part of the box off so that you can take a look at the wires. You will notice that there are two green wires and one black wire. These are all the different colors that you will see for the evaporator coil. If your coil is bad, you will see that there is only one green wire connected to the circuit breaker in your home and this is the one that you should be concerned about.
The black wire can sometimes become disconnected from the circuit breaker. If you find that this wire is on the other side of the circuit breaker than the one on the breaker panel, it is a good idea to check to see if it is the right one. Take a look at the insulation on the wire because this is where the problem is going to occur. If you can remove the insulation, you can always look under the box for the coil. If you can find this part of the box, you will be able to clean up the problem quickly.
