Condenser line sweating

Is it normal for the lines inside the condenser to sweat?

Pretty much if the relative humidity is high and it is a fairly light sweat. Definitely not if you have ice forming.

No ice but I wouldn't consider it light. It's enough that is runs out the bottom of the condenser and wets the concrete pad. It does it more during the day but the house stays cool.

I wouldn't sweat it. Fun fact, if suction ices or freezes from evap. to condenser,low on freon,dirty filter or coil,bad motor,etc. If freezes from compressor to evap. overcharged or outside air too cold.
