It is normal for water to collect in the lower base of an air conditioner. See the section entitled: "There is water sloshing around inside." If water leaks out the front it is usually because the unit is tilted forward in the window frame. All air conditioners should be installed so they tilt slightly back to allow for proper removal of the condensation collected.

There is water sloshing around inside All window air conditioners will remove moisture from the air if there is any. Most window air conditioners collect this moisture in the bottom pan of the air conditioner and attempt to evaporate the moisture. The evaporation process works as follows: First, the water drips down off of the cold evaporator coils on the front of the unit. Then the water collects in the bottom of the air conditioner base, the "pan." If the air conditioner is installed properly it will be tilted slightly back.

The water then collects near the back of the unit. On some units, the fan blade used to cool the rear condensing coils will have a rim on the outside of the fins of the blade. This rim, or "slinger," will come close to touching the inside of the air conditioner pan when the fan is spinning. As the water collects in the pan and reaches the depth necessary for the fan ring to touch it, the ring will lift some of the water up and the fan will blow it at the condensing coils. Because the coils are warm, they will evaporate the moisture to the outside.

While this is happening it is normal to hear water splashing and sloshing around. As long as there is no water leaking inside the room that is being cooled there is no cause for concern.

Never drill into the bottom of and air conditioning unit to "let the water out."

if this helps please give me a fix ya

I just fixed this on mine one minute ago.

Take off the front panel.
You will see a black wire held onto the heat fins by a plastic clip.
This is the thermocouple that measures temperature.
Mine became unplugged from the circuit board and plugging it back in fixed the problem.

The wire goes into a steel box.
take off the screws on the bottom of the box, grab it by the lowed left corner and bend the metal up as far as you can.

The wire plugs into a small white connector on the circuit board.
plug it back in, bend the metal back down, screw it in, replace the cover, and you should be good to go.

Refrigerants for sunbeam air conditioner model sck 7500dr btu 7500


If this is a portable or window unit your out of luck. The refrigerant would have to be put in through a process tube, using a piercing valve. You have to be EPA certified to purchase or handle refrigerants. The fines are very heavy. Your better off just getting a central air system.

sometimes storing an AC for long periods of time will allow the coolant that it uses to seep out, leaving you with an AC that seems to work, but won'tr cool any air. If you have a user's manual (or can find one) check to see what type of coolant it uses (if it's freon or something else) and if you can refill it. If you can refill the coolant, that should resolve your problem ... if not, you might be able to take it to a repair shop and have them do it for you. Good luck!

It sound like the coil inside could be dirty. I have had the same problem with air handlers, when the coil is dirty or the filter is dirty it creates a back pressure and causes the condensation to drip off away from the condensation pan. Try accessing the coil on the inside see if it is dirty, if it is clean it lightly with soapy water and a brush and be carefull not to bend the fins on the coil. If it is clean double check the condensation hose and inlet for the hose for foreign matter.
