Water leaking from portable air conditioner

When the portable air conditioner is running the water condensation fills up the top reservior. However, it does not seem to go into the bottom reservior. Instead it overflows and leaks out of the back of the unit.

Re: 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.

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.

Leaking water

Connect the proper sized tubing, and run it to a desired drain area. Make sure no outside air is entering the conditioned space.

I have an Amcor 12000M portable air con unit. How do I top up the water tank?

There is no need to top of the water tank. When the unit is running it collects condensation and fills the tank with water. When the tank is FULL the Full indicator will illuminate and the unit will shut OFF. You will ten need to drain the water from the rear drain hole.

To further assist you, in case you have misplaced your Owners Manual. I have included a link to it that you can download & print for future reference.

I hope this information has helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Air conditioner leaked a lot of fluid that looked like water after being on all night. Do you think this is an easy fix, or what do you think is wrong with it? Thanks

All air conditioning units have built in drains. When the drain is clogged the water fills the drip pain and spills out. An easy fix is to open you unit and just wipe the drains. If you cannot find the drain find where the water is coming from and trace the water to the source. The other possibility is that the unit has a dehumidifier that is not properly sealed and it is leaking the water it collects if so find the dehumidifier (usually labeled) and pull the cover off clean the seal and put cover back on (may snap into place) and see what happens the next day.

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.

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.

Everstar portable ac fills the overflow water bucket in one day. Why?

Air conditioners cause the moisture in the air to condense on the evaporator coil. The water that is created needs to have somewhere to drain. If the unit is in a humid environment, it will create allot of condensation. This kind of operation is not uncommon.

No water

If the air conditioner is putting out cold air, don't worry about it making water. You may not have enough moisture in the air to produce more water than it requires.

In some types of air conditioners, the water taken from the air is used to assist in cooling the condenser unit. The excess is run off.

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
