Water dripping out of the louvres of the air con unit

Model AST30RBA-W We've cleaned the filters and the water only drips out of the louvres not down the wall. We were advised to turn it on full power on either cool or dry due to humid Sydney summer and it's dripping. Normal water outlet pipe is dripping water too (normal). Any help please!

SOURCE: Water is not dripping from window A/C unit, air is cold but damp

HELLO .. HOPEFULLY YOUR UNIT SLIDES OUT OF THE A/C HOUSING, IF IT DOES REMOVE IT. (THERE MAY BE A FEW SCREWS HOLDING IT IN PLACE USUALLY BEHIND THE FRONT GRILL) PUT DOWN SOME OLD RUGS FIRST AND HAVE SOMEONE HELP YOU SLIDE IT OUT. GET OT THE GARDEN HOSE AND SPRAY NOZZLE. PROP UP THE FRONT OF THE UNIT SO IT DRAINS TO THE REAR. BOTH THE EVAPORATOR COIL AND CONDENSER COILS SHOULD BE CLEAN. YOU WILL NOT SEE DIRT ON THE OUT-SIDE OF THE COIL ... IT WILL BE ON THE INSIDE HIDDEN BY THE CONDENSER FAN BLADE. BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO BEND THE FAN BLADE WHILE INSPECTING OR WASHING. BE EXTREAMLY CAREFUL TO COVER THE MOTOR AND ELECTRICAL CONTROL BOX WITH PLASTIC BAGS TO ENSURE ALL ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS STAY DRY. FACTOID: 90% OF AIR CONDITIONERS THAT "DONT COOL AS WELL ANYMORE" IS DUE TO DIRTY COILS. THERE IS ALSO A TUBE OR CHANEL THAT DRAINS THE WATER FROM THE EVAP (FRONT) COIL TO THE BACK OF THE UNIT. THAT CONDENSATE WATER IS SUPPOSED TO ACCUMILATE IN A SNALL RESEVOIUR WHERE THE SLINGER RING ON THE OUT SIDE COIL FAN BLADE PICKS IT UP AND HELPS COOL THE HOT CONDENSER COIL. SOME OLDER UNITS MAY NOT HAVE A SLINGER RING AROUND THE OUTSIDE OF THE BLADE. NOW ... MAKE SURE YOUR OUTSIDE FAN BLADE IS CLEAN. AS WELL AS THE INSIDE BLOWER FINS ON THE "SQUIREL CAGE". NOW THAT YOUR UNIT IS CLEAN AND YOU CAN SEE CLEARLY THROUGH BOYH COILS, GO AHEAD AND OIL YOUR MOTOR. CHECK TO SEE IF YOUR FAN MOTOR HAS "OIL CAPS" USUALLY THEY ARE AT THE TOP OF THE 2 ENDS OF THE MOTOR. IF THERE ARE CAPS REMOVE THEM AND USE A STRAIGHT WEIGHT (NON-DETERGENT OIL). SOME WINDOW A/C'S UNDER 12,000 BTU'S ARE SEALED UNITS. IN THAT CASE YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE UNIT FROM THE WINDOW MOUNTING BRACKET. AND FOLLOW THE SAME PROCEEDURE AS LISTED ABOVE. GOOD LUCK AND STAY DRY.

SOURCE: Panasonic Inverter aircon E24DKR icing up inside unit

Yes, if the filters are clean, the coils are clean, and it is still freezing up in cooling mode, then it is low on refridgerant.

SOURCE: Water dripping from air con use

If the unit is mounted on an outside wall check the condensate drain that comes out with the line-set to the outdoor unit. If the pipping goes up into the attic than you have a small condensate pump that may have failed. The float in the pump may have stuck in the down position not allowing the pump to come on.

I will star checking freon pressure but you going to call an HVAC company to do that. Please turn it off or you will damage the compressor, if is not already.

If the old unit was dripping condensate into the house, it was installed incorrectly. The replacement unit may have been installed correctly so the condensate drains outside.

Hi, recently my a/c window unit starting making a water sloushing sound then started spitting ice. Is it dying?


What you are hearing is a water buildup in the drip pan under the unit. This is caused by a clogged drain hole and/or not enough downward tilt on the rear of the unit. The rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2' rear downward tilt. This allows the water to flow to the rear of the drip pan and out thru the drain hole. The spitting ice, is from the fan blades hitting the water in the drip pan. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Then check and adjust if necessary, the things I mentioned above. Aslo, be sure that the air intake filter remains clean.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

the inside unit should be mounted with a slight tilt to the outside - so the water can drain outside.
also - be sure your drain hole (in the unit) is not plugged - either with dirt/debris.

It is necessary that the A/C is mounted with a tilt to the rear so that the water that drips while the compressors works from the cooling pipes will flow off to the drain at the rear.
Look on the sides or lift the front filter covers to get access to the screws holding the front panel to the main frame. now remove and PULL out the unit with the power detached.
You need help to hold on the main unit when pulled out , clean and reset using jet water/air. Lubricate if needed on the fan motor, clean the fins by blowing or brushing.

Why is there water dripping from the air con?


The most probable cause is a clogged drain line.
Also ensure your air filter and the evaporator coils are clean.
Let us know if this helps and good luck.

Kelvinator aircon is dripping water from air vent in house


Sounds as if unit is freezing over----typically a response to lack of proper ventilation-----check all filters and access panels to unit and clear or clean as needed-----if unit has a drip pan make sure unit has been positioned properly so as to catch excess......properly ventilating unit should resolve issue though
