the slimy pink substance is the product of long usage and is a normal accumulation of dust and dirt.

have a regular cleaning of the unit to prevent another occurrence of the water not draining out. usually every three months depending on the location of the unit.

My window air conditoner is leaking water inside and what can I do to prevent that?

Make sure the unit is tilted down at the rear at least 1/4" to 1/2" and that the drain hole in the drain pan, under the rear of the unit is not clogged. The drain hole can be hard to find, as clogs blend in with hole. So, be persistent in looking for it.

Hope this helped you Elaine. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Delonghi Pinguino Classic Portable Air Conditoner Works for 30 min then red light comes on

Have it serviced. It cost me $250 to have a pro do it. Also, check the timer (the dial is hidden by a sliding cover on my unit). My husband cleaned it himself a year later and he took it apart to do it and it works much better now. When he opened it up, it was full of calcium deposit and dust. He told me he did not think the unit had been cleaned properly by the pro.
