Question about Samsung AW1893L Air Conditioner

2 Answers

Need installation info

I have a Samsung window a/c AW12EC87 that is dripping down the inside wall. When I check it with a level it is inclined to the inside at about 1/4 to 1/3 inch to the foot drop ...I know this is improper but I need info on what I should do. Should it be installed level or should it be installed with a "drop" to the outside?
I do not have the owners manual.

Tilt the unit toward the back so it will drain toward the back or you will have a mess on your hands,tilt it just about 1/2 in so the water runs toward the back and drains outside and very important to air filter clean

It should lean slightly to the outside, also you may have a blockage that is causing it not to drain properly, atleast some water should be going outside, check this by taking out the plug in the back, if no water at all is in there, then you have a blockage, you will need to unplug unit, take cover off and carefully clean the inside of the unit, try not to get electrical wet!

Just want to know if it needs to be slanted, or level. A/C unit is presently level, and the fan blades "dip" into the approx. 1/3 inch water level that accumulates due to condensation, I...


If you have a window or thru the wall unit, it should be tiled down at the rear of the unit 1/4" to 1/2". This is required so that the water in the drip pan will flow to the rear of the pan and out thru the drain hole.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

The unit starts to drip water inside the house down the wall of the window that it is in


What you will need to do is reposition the window unit to where it is slightly tilted downwards in the rear so that the water flows out the backside.

check to see if the drain to outside or your condensate pump is blocked with dirt, lift the unit off the wall and make sure the drain hose is correctly attached in the back of the drip tray. also ensure the unit is level using a spirit level.

Dripping air conditoner


The "drip pan" is actually the entire base srround of the unit. There are two critical things you must confirm 1) is the unit angled back to the outside(you need water to flow away from the inside) and 2) there may be a plug/obstruction in the outer casing where the water is intended to drain from. You should check to see if either or both of these conditions exsist.

Leaking water from inside samsung split sytem


if your indoor unit is leaking water down the wall,it is from one of two things.First, is possibly the insulkation on the copper lines is coming loose and the suction line is condesated,with no way to drain,it drips down the unit.The other possiblity is that the drain hose is coming loose from vibration and leaking a little.
