Frigidaire window unit spits water into room

My Frigidaire window unit spits water into my room only when the humidity is high outside. The unit is about a year old and this came on rather suddenly. It is properly pitched backwards and the drain pan is definitely not plugged up. When the humidity is high, about 85 or above I simply cannot set the thermostat below about 68 degrees.

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.

I have a frigidaire fac105p1a that is spiting water out though the vents what do i do about that?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you have water spitting out of the top vent on your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAC105P1A. I also see that it sounds like water is gurgling through the pipes and you want to know how to fix it. If your air conditioner is also leaking outside, this is normal during excessively humid days, due to it removing large quantities of moisture from a humid room. If it is also dripping inside, I suggest slightly tilting your air conditioner to the outside, to allow water drainage. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your air conditioner status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Haier 5500 window unit, spits water into the room sometimes. Also, water "sloshes" around inside the fan area & is quite noisy sometimes. ? Thankyou for your assistance...


You will need to reposition the unit to where it will be tilted downwards slightly outside.
The water will then flow out the back and not spit into the room.

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.

Window air conditioner is spitting water


Hello, usually a window AC will spit water if the unit is not tilted back or if the drain is backed up, if the unit is level try tilting it back it the window somewhat. Also, if the unit does have a drain make sure it is not blocked.

Yes, we have a fridgidaire FAC127S1A Model and we installed it today and are having trouble with it leaking water once it runs for a while. (The hole on the under side of the A/C.) Is this normal or is it...


If the water is leaking to the outside, that is normal. Especially if, the humidity is high outside.

If it's leaking to the inside. No, that's not normal and is due to improper installation. The rear of the unit should tilt down about 1/4" , to allow the water to drain outside via the drain pan hole.

To help you further, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual for your FAC127S1A model air conditioner. You can download and print it for future reference.

Water leaking its serial number is 008ka01320


I am assuming this is a window A/C.
Because A/Cs pull moisture out of the room water dripping is to be expected. You want it to drip outside however. The unit needs to be pitched at an angle to the outside.
Because water will seek it's own level, the pitch needn't be more than 10 degrees or so.
Also, sealing is very important. If the unit is allowed to pull in outside, humid air the amount of condensation will "overload" the pitch causing some of the water drip indoors.
Sometimes lowering the temp a bit from constant HIGH will solve the problem.
I hope this was of some help, and not overly simplistic. GOOD LUCK.

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.

Wash out outside coil from time to time.This is the most over looked part of window units. Take care not to spray water directly into fan motor. If not real humid in house check temp coming out of ac inside and make sure filter and coil are clean. run on high speed and the air should have good force. 20 to 30 degree temp drop of room temp should be about right. Much depend on outside temp and humidity and indoor humidity plus insulation factor of area. How many people are in the area and if you keep unit on day and night .

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! ;)

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
