This is most likely due to the installation. The unit should have at least 1/4 inch slope towards the outside to provide for proper drainage. If it is sloped towards the inside, that's where the water will go. To check, take the unit out of the sleeve and place a level on the inside bottom of the sleeve, and check the slope. If its flat or sloping towards the inside, the sleeve will need to be removed and re-installed.

When water runs off the condenser, is there a path it follows to the back of the unit that cold become blocked?


ac units are designed with a small trough at the back of the unit under the evaporator fins
this trough drains out a small hose to outside the building
It can become obstructed by gunk from the inside of the house ( same gunk that blocks the air filters) or the hose attached to the drain outlet can become blocked
check for a mud wasp nest in the drain hole as well

Water on floor from ac unit


Hi John,

First, water from an A/C unit is normal, and is created when warm, moist air is passed over a cold surface (like a glass of cold water sweats sitting in a warm room). This is called condensation.

Solve the issue by making sure the unit is tilted slightly back - towards the outside. This allows the condensation that drips off the cold coil will land on the bottom of the case and roll towards the rear - which is outside.

Once it is tilted back, inspect the underside of the outside portion of the unit. You should find several openings designed to allow the water to drain out and fall to the ground. Over time, these holes can become clogged with dust, dirt, spiders, etc. Simply insert a small screwdriver into the hole(s) - just enough to clear the obstruction.

If the unit is draining water out the back to the outdoors AND also inside, water can not drain fast enough from the A/C. You may not have cleared all the openings outside and / or not have provided enough of an angle to the tilt. Locate and clear the additional openings and make the tilt adjustments as needed.

Make sure the filter is clean! A dirty filter can cause the A/C to eventually ice up - providing only partial cooling. When the unit is shut off, the ice will rapidly melt and may do so faster than the water can drain outside - leaving puddles on your floor again.

I hope this helps!

My through the wall whirlpool air conditioner has water sprinkling through where the cold air comes into the room is my air conditioner broken??


Hi,
No... either the drain hole is plugged or the unit is tipped forward instead of backward...make sure that the unit outside the window is lower then the inside by just a bit... The drain holes are usually in the back outside corners and often they plug up with dirt or debris...
Here is a tip about troubleshooting your air conditioner...
There are many things that can cause your air conditioner not to cool...

How do istop the tcl portable air con leaking water


As you probably know, Air conditioners condense the moisture out of the occupied space, as the room air passes over the colder coils.
That water has to drain away into a drain, or a bucket -- or something!

So-- How is the water designed to drain away?
and what is interfering with that path?

There are the obvious causes, like mold, or a bug, or dirt, etc-- blocking the drain hole-
Or possibly sediment filing the condensate line trap--
Are you sure these are all clear, and open?

But one that is often overlooked, is the fact that a fan might be creating a slight vacuum in the area where the drain line exits the rain pan--- and the water can actually be prevented from draining, until the fan shuts off (removing the slight vacuum)-- is that possible in this machine?

Or when you open up the machine, is the drain pan still filled to over flowing?
Can you use a mini Toilet plunger on the drain, to help unblock it?

Give me some more clues, and I'll try to help you trouble shoot deeper into the problem.

Water in air conditioner


A lot of the newer window units design the outside fan to pickup the condensate water and sling it onto the coil. The evaporative effect makes the unit run more efficiently. They ususally don't spit, but if the unit is running well, otherwise, I would't worry about it.

There is no drain hole for water to drip outside.


These are designed to retain some water in the pan. This is for the slinger fan to throw water through the condensing coil. This helps the refrigerant cool and is important to the efficiency of the unit. I would certainly not recommend drilling a hole in the bottom. The hole may cause the water to roll somewhere where damage could occur. Try instead tipping the unit Backwards before bringing it in the house.

(Tilted) Plasmaire spits water into room....


What your problem is is that water coming back into your face is condesation. Appearently there is a clog preventing your condensation water from draining out the back side of the a/c You can remove the a/c from it's sleeve, take it outside and with a pump sprayer (Type used for spraying insecticide) filled with water spray around the base of the a/c where the condensor coil sits (you should see a small drain channel in this area) If this drain channel is clogged water will back up and the squirrel cage will pick it up throwing it out into the house.. Good Luck on your repairs

Water tank fills up every 3hrs


The amount of water that is getting extracted from the air in the room is based on how humid the air is. The good news is your unit is really getting quite a bit of moisture out of the air and as such, is working well to cool your room.

It is working as designed. You may want to see if you can connect a hose to a drain port (if yours has that included) to let the unit room longer without the need to drain the condensate (water) every 3 or so hours.

Hope this helps and best regards!

Humidity


An air conditioner of this type always has standing water sitting in the base-tray of the machine as it's running. They're designed to work that way. However, if the unit leans slightly in toward the inside of your house, then the water in the tray can be deeper than it should and/or add extra humidity to the inside air. These units are designed to be installed so that they lean slightly to the _outside_ of the window or wall-hole where they are mounted. This way the standing water drains off to the ground outside and isn't so deep on the inside of the unit that it adds too much humidity to the inside air. Check the mounting of this unit to make sure it leans slightly toward the outside. Also verify that any notch or drain hole on the outside end of the unit, intended to guide draining water, is not clogged with debris (which could also cause the standing water in the unit to be at too high a level). Also verify that the "vent" is closed, if this unit is equipped with said vent opening. An open vent panel can allow humid outside air inside as the unit is running. Hope this helps! ;)
