It is common on many air conditoners for water to come out of them however it should not come into your room if installed properly and working properly sometimes water can enter into a room of an air condtioner due to incorrect installation per the servive manual for your model air conditioner the back of the air conditioner should be about one half of an inch lower then then the front of your air conditoner this specific model shoud have a couple of leveling adjusters to adjust the level in some cases the leveling adjusters may need to be removed or the sill changed or modified so the correct angle of installation may be obtained I will send you the entire service manual if you will help me obtain information on the bracket for the rear filter of your air conditoner is there any writng and or numbers on such bracket what all does and does not this say on the rear bracket please send to me all of your contact information such as name address and telephone number to me please reply to me at my email address. Sincerely, Steven Bolin email@example.com I am pasting with this a portion of the service manual below.To prevent vibration and noise, make sure the unit is installed securely and firmly. 2.Install the unit where the sunlight does not shine directly on the unit. 3.The outside of the cabinet must extend outward for at least 12" and there should be no obstacles, such as a fence or wall, within 20" from the back of the cabinet because it will prevent heat radiation of the condenser. Restriction of outside air will greatly reduce the cooling efficiency of the air conditioner. CAUTION: All side louvers of the cabinet must remain exposed to the outside of the structure. 4.Install the unit a little slanted so the back is slightly lower than the front (about 1/2"). This will help force con-densed water to the outside. 5.Install the unit from the bottom about 30"~60" above the floor level.

When I Bought mine the drain plug was missing and the water leaked unto the floor. The people I bought it from were unresponsive, so I tried various plugs, all leaked. Finally, I siliconed the drain hole shut. It has not leaked since.

Make sure your unit tilts AWAY from your window, to make water drain out the back.

Air conditioners and high-efficiency combustion furnaces create significant condensation, which exits through a plastic drain tube. This should go into a floor drain or be carried away by a small "condensate pump." If water is pooling at the base of the appliance, something may be blocking the water's flow or leaking, or the pump may not be working. 1) Look to see if one of the tubes is leaking. If it is, replace it. 2) Test the condensate pump by pouring water into its pan. If the pump doesn't start, either it isn't receiving power, or it is broken. Be sure that it's plugged in and test the circuit. If it's broken, either get it repaired or replace it. 3) If the pump runs but doesn't empty the pan, the ball-like check valve just before the discharge tube is probably stuck. Unscrew the check valve and loosen the ball inside it. Look for an obstruction. If it appears that a condensation drain tube is clogged with algae, remove it if possible (you may have to cut it and replace it later with a coupling). Run a wire through it to clear it. To kill algae, pour a dilute solution of bleach (1 part bleach to 16 parts water) through the pipe. 4) With an air conditioner, ice may be blocking the tube. If this is the case, be sure the filter isn't dirty. If the filter appears to be fine, the air conditioner's refrigerant supply is probably low. This is when it's time to call an air conditioning technician.
