That appears to be a condensate drain. All portable AC have them. Normally there would be a small tubing attached to the fitting, leading to the outside or to a drain

SOURCE: Leak repair Samsung window air conditioner

Modern window units intentionally do not allow the water to drain directly, they want the fan blade to sling the water on to the condensor (the coil that is outside) to aid in cooling actually helps the unit cool better in high outside temps, it also evaporates it this way, depending on where the hole was drilled it may be able to be repaired, if it was just a copper tube it will be less expensive than replacing the whole coil. Since its a relative inexpensive unit anyway the labor and freon may be more than its worth. Lesson learned dont drill a hole in the base it lowers it's efficiency and can lead to a punctured freon line.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: rv air conditioner leaking

I have the same problem....it is a negative pressure problem holding water inside the unit until it overflows the pan and runs into the duct system. why this occurs....I don't know....I cant find a problem with my air return, but as soon as you turn in off, the water comes gushing out the drains on the unit. I resolved this....temporarily....by twisting up a paper towel into a wick, and placing one end up into the drain tray, with the other end lying well out into the exterior case. This lets the water wick out and keeps the tray drained. I don't understand the problem and don't know what the permanent fix will be, except maybe cutting a hole and placing an intake vent directly below the unit.

SOURCE: Drain Hole for Frigidaire Window Air Conditioner

Leave it alone. DO NOT attempt to create a drain. As long as a window A/C unit is installed properly, (angled slightly down toward the rear) it will drain excess water over the rear lower lip of the unit should it get that high. Many models use some of the collected water/condensation. It gets lifted up by the fan blades to cool the coil.

SOURCE: water leaking all over

The water leaks all over the floor instead of running into the water containner. if that is right then your condenser drain pan tubing is blocked or the pan is rusted out that cause the water leaks all over instead of running down the tubing into the water containner . You've to dismantle the panels to get into this condenser drain pan to have a good clean out . Hope this will help . God Bless.

My DeLonghi PAC A110L portable air conditioner is leaking water. How do I fix this?


Hallo

If an Air Conditioner is on cooling then the Air Conditioner also removes humidity from the air any Split Unit, Window Wall A/C you name it... Any A/C on cooling dehumidify the air in the room.

To decrease the volume of the water:
1) Clean Air filter/s
2) Keep doors and windows close( can open now and again).

I don't know how that portable A/C of your look like but I believe theirs a water pan inside that needs cleaning I think it's full.( best is to service the hole A/C).

Hope this was useful.

Regards

I have the LG LP1200DXR and it is leaking near the wheel and i cant figure out why, when we drain it no water comes out what could the problem be?


All air conditioners collect condensate. It has to drain somewhere. Try connecting tubing to the drain hole or port. In order for air conditioners to remove heat from a space, they also remove humidity, which is water vapor in the air. Like placing a cold beverage in a warm room, it will form condensate (water) around it. The water that you were trying to drain out already leaked out. This is a normal thing for condensation to form when cooling. The condensate needs to be emptied regularly or piped with flexible tubing to a window or plumbing.This is the same as water dripping from your car while the A/C is on.

My amcor air conditioner is leaking water all over the floor. I drain it and it will only last less then 24 hours till it turns off, leaks all over an needs to be drained. Help!


I figured out the problem. My Amcor portable started leaking after the fill light came on for the first time in years. After doing some research I saw that it uses the water to cool some other part of the system to evaporate out the exhaust. So I took the ******* apart and messed with things. Finally I started pouring water into different trays and noticed it would not drain down from the top tray even when running. So I removed the top part and found the drain hole. Blasted that sum ***** with some compressed air and WAMMO it works again.

Blue dial flashing, drain doesn't drain, yet water is leaking from the bottom somewere.


The drain hole may be clogged and not allowing the unit to drain as it should. Check the drain hole for clogs and if necessary, run an 18" long plastic ZIP Tie (or something similar. No wire coat hangers, though), that will fit inside the drain hole, as far as you carefully can. Slowly remove it and be prepared for water to follow,

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

Contact sharp for the replacement remote. As for the water the drain should discharge to a pan through a tube or a cap covers the drain hole. When it gets full it leaks out onto the floor. Also when it ices inside through prolonged use and can leak out through the edges to the bottom.

Water leaking from portable air conditioner


First, make sure the unit is level. If so, you have a blockage or kink in the drain tube. Careful inspection should reveal any blockage, & you may be able to poke it thru with a piece of coathanger wire. Don't use excessive force, any block should be easily freed.
