Re: No drainage water, room too humid

Sounds like the compressor is cycling in and out on a safety switch , could be high or low pressure, due to being short of gas for example

I have water drips from the filter on my dometic ac. Then when you change the settings or turn unit off it drains more water. I noticed a lot of condensation in the area of the coil foam housing

Sounds like unit is too small or there is too high of humidity. An A/C unit draws water out of the air as it absorbs the heat from the room. If the room is too big or there is too high of humidity the evaporator will freeze the moister and ice will build up then it will drip when turned off as the ice melts. As a fix, You can get a bigger unit, use a dehumidifier ( which works the same as A/C), or start the A/C at a warmer temp.and turn down gradually as air moisture disappears.

Why is water leaking on the floor from my haier air conditioner

Window A/C units will dehumidify the rooms as they operate. The unit has drainage at the rear. It is important when installing the unit to ensure that the unit slopes slightly OUTWARD to allow the water to drain to the rear. Otherwise the drain pan fills and the water pours into the room. If the unit IS tilted outward, then check the drainage holes for obstructions.

Were do i get the manuel for model number ph3 12r03 is the model number were or how do I drain the water and can you send me a manual

Here is the link to the manual:

Here are those particular instructions:

Compressor Indicator

The " " icon will light up on the control panel display when the compressor turns on. The " " icon will turn off when the compressor shuts off.

Emergency Condensate Holding Tank

When the room temperature is low and the indoor humidity is high, the air conditioner may not be able to evaporate some of the moisture fast enough. When this happens, the water will accumulate in an emergency condensate tank inside the unit. Once the emergency condensate tank is full, the unit will automatically shut off and the " " will appear on the control panel display. To empty the condensate tank, unscrew the screw plug at the bottom back of the unit. You will need a small pan, approximately 1" high to catch the water coming out of the condensate tank. Once the condensate tank is drained, the unit will begin working within a few minutes. The emergency condensate tank holds approximate
ly 1.5 Liters of water.

Another option is to purchase a small hose from a hardware store that can fit around the 5/8" drain plug on the back of the unit and drain the unit into a gravity drain or larger pan for continuous drainage.

To resume operation quickly, empty the water container according to the following steps:

1. Turn the unit off. Do not move the unit when the water container is full.

2. Place the drain pan accessory under the drainage port at the back of the unit.

3. Remove the screw plug from the drain hole. The condensate water will drain out automatically. When the drain pan is full, screw the screw plug back onto the drainage hole to stop the water flow. Empty the drain pan. Repeat until all the water is emptied.

Once the water container has been emptied, screw the plug back onto the drain hole. Do not allow the
water to drip continuously into the drain pan, as it might easily overflow.

Where is drain plug

Usually on a window AC there is no drain plug. It relies on the tilt of the of the AC. The AC should be installed with a slight rear tilt so the water flows to the rear to where there should be two factory drain holes. Besure to get proper drainage otherwise the fan will pick up water and blow it into you house and cause humidity. I have also drill a hole on the lowest location on the bottom of the chassis to help drain it seven better. Your AC depending on where you live and how humid it is will collect more water on a humid day than a dry day and also the effenciancy will be worse on a humid day.

Excess water prodution in portable 14000 BTU unit. See below

I'm not sure if this is the same model I have, but

hi ' most of window type aircondition produces noise not same as the split type , but i see you have problem of the water that spits to your room, may be you can check the mounting of the unit, the proper mounting is it must be a little slant making the water run to its drainage . the edge of the casing must a little bit dropped lower in mounting.

The black pull out or push in button for vent should it be opened or closed while using the air conditioner unit?

Here are some factors you can consider, when YOU DECIDE:
1.) Do you need fresh air in?-- (Like venting hot, or bad smelling air?)
Then open the vent for a few minutes--

2.) Is it hot and muggy outside?-
Then yo will be bringing in that muggy air--
OK for a few minutes, to freshen up things- but not for long term--
(For the humidity from outside, is going to overload your cooling capacity quicker.)

3.) As time goes by-- you are lowering the humidity inside the room--- Opening the vent will raise the humidity inside.

Does that help?

New AC unit mist

It sounds like the unit is either level or tilted down in the front, not allowing the water to run to the back of the ac and the blower wheel is picking the water up and blowing it into the room.
You need to put a level on it and lower the back of the ac so the water the coil removes can run to the back of the unit and that should solve your problem.

Frigidaire window unit spits water into room

To be honest with you this is a good and a bad thing. The bad thing is that it is spitting water into the room. The good thing is that the unit is running Great. The amount of humidity it is removing. is greater and faster than it can run down and off the coil. See if there is any possible way to deflect the water. i would recommend trying to attach a piece of screen door material. It will likely keep the water from going through it.
