Question about model #253-355080

I have this air conditioner in my apartment window. Apparently, the neighbours below are complaining of it dripping on their window ledge and was told by the office administrator that I need to attach a hose to filter out the water. I look everywhere and cannot see where I need to do this. Any suggestions? :)

I woud suggest putting a pan under the unit with a hole in it that you can attach a hose bib and then attach the hose to it and run the hose to a better location...

How Do I get my air conditioner to stop dripping?

It's condensation. With central air, there is pipes that either discharge or recirculate it. Window a/c's do not have that. Try to position it so it drips outside.

Air conditioners work by taking water out of the air, so there is some drainage needed. It is possible your drain line is clogged and it isn't coming out the normal drain. You can also add an extention to the drain line, to get it past her window. Just make sure you route the line no less than one inch per foot drop if you can sideways.

My window unit air conditioner unit is dripping profusely out of the bottom of the unit inside of my apartment. the drip pan is overflowing.

Hello, make sure the unit is tilted toward the outside a bit, if it is level the condensate will collect in the front and start dripping inside the house. Also, if the unit has a drain make sure it is clean so the water can drain out properly.

Hello You have to cut the pipe and blow out each end,You can use a 1"rubber hose from an auto parts store & 2 hose clamps, If you can't find the end.This will allow access in the future to clean out the pipes.It will slip over 3/4" PVC pipe.They sell a PVC pipe cutter but a hacksaw blade works well.Get ready for all the water in the pan once you cut!

newer AC's do drip more condensate than old ones due to increased efficiency
this will help with the complaints;;; ducttape a small funnel to the outside location of the AC (usually at the tray end) where the unit drips; (you may have to cut the funnel a bit to fit) attach a small hose to the bottom of the funnel and, place the other end of the hose into a bottle inside the window on the apartment's floor; empty the bottle regularly.

You need to vacuum the coils in the back of the fridge and make sure you have a drip pan under you fridge. The fridge will over work itself because of buildup dirt.

Have 5000BTU Goldstar window unit. Water dripping

the bottom of the case from the outside usually has a "divot" in it below the coil to allow flow from the hose that runs across the bottom of the unit, try pressuring up and "blowing out" any obstruction, if this does not work then you may have to disassemble the unit and verify the drainpan is not cracked below the indoor coil (rare)

Whirlpool Air Con Drainage issue

Yes, there should be a place for the condensate to drain outside. It's apparently clogged and the drip pan is overfilling. Look for a tube or an opening outside where the condensate should be exiting. This needs to be unclogged.
