What is error A108, Condensate Blocked: Unclog Line?

Error A108 means the heating source defaults to elements due to condensate drain blockage. The following steps can help you check the issue.

  1. Remove the top cover from the tank
  2. Visually inspect to ensure condensate line is clear and there is not excessive condensate in the condensate pan
  3. If water is present, locate the blockage and unlock it.
  4. Ask the customer where the condensate is being routed 
  5. If the pan is dry and no blockage is present, replace the condensate sensor.
  6. Also, this is often caused by a frozen condensate line during the winter.  So, depending on how the condensate line was installed and if it was uninsulated that could be a potential cause.  If you are able to test that water runs through the condensate line clearly then that could point to needing to replace a condensate sensor.
