I have a Kenmore Portable ac unit and its leaking from the back in the middle of the vent. I drained the unit,but it starts leaking again within minutes. Is there something wrong or could it just be too...


All portables, alllll, you have to put unit in
window with a slight tilt, as the unit runs
it creates condensation that condensation
is the water leaking out the back it's supposed
to do that, I have seen people hook a hose up
an let it drain in a bucket.
even your car a/c leaks water

Water leaks under portable air con unit


Look for a crack on the water tank or a dried up gasket on the tank. Loose hose clamps can allow a leak as well.

Midea portable air conditioner leaking water from bottom


Do you have it tilted back slightly towards the outside? It will drain on the inside if not tilted properly.

When i run the ac it leaks on the floor from the inside n i dont know what to do about this problem.


All portable or window ac units are mounted or standing with the back lower housing at a slope

so that the condensed water buildup from the evaporator can drain into a tray or thru a tube out

the back of the unit, depending on what kind of unit you have you may have to take it apart and

make sure the drain for the condensed water is not blocked. some times these units are not

installed correctly, they will not drain properly and standing water with time will turn to rust and

clog up the tube where it needs to flow from the ac unit. good luck!

My unit is leaking tons of water only when a/c is on for a while. It leaks out of base and I have to drain tank every day. Help!!!


It is supposed to "leak" water into it's reservoir and it needs to be dumped when it gets full. That water is the humidity that the a/c is pulling form the air inside your home. As long as it's going into the reservoir and not leaking onto your floor then it is working properly.

LG 18000 ac leaks water in the front of unit indoors.


Hi,

the drain pan is either clogged or the unit is not mounted properly. If the drain pan is clogged simply clean it and the problem goes away. In the case of the unit mounting, check the angle of the unit and the drain pan inside, if it tilted to the front even just a little then water would leak. the drain pan should lean toward the drain and away from the front.

I hope this helps.

We purchased a Whirlpool portable air conditioner in 2005 from Best Buy. Near the end of last summer the air conditioner started leaking water. We started using it again this season and it is still...


Check to see if the drain is blocked by particles/debris of any type. Also make sure that the unit is level--as level as possible. I have my Whirlpool Portable AC in 4 inch bed risers so I can drain it really easily. I slip under a small low rise pan and drain it every two days or so when it is running. Mine leaked when I tried to incline it backwards to make it drain faster. As soon as I leveled the unit the leak stopped and water again came out the hose. These units must be kept level to prevent leaks so now I always do that.

Water leaking from portable air conditioner


Sounds like the drain line is blocked you would have to take this unit apart in order to check this. I would use a can of air to blow out the leakage. Also make sure the unit is level
