MAke sure you have it leaned back and that water is dripping from it in the back if not do so if water still isnt drippin than screw some holes in the bottom so it can drip if it doesnt work than it might have blown up
Bring it outside or to your tub and tip it on a 45 degree angle some water will drip out...once a puddle has come out of this thing it will work again but u will need to properly drain it eventually unless u wanna tip it and drain it every few days. But thats what ive been doing with mine...
Water, or in this case - condensation will be created and drip from the cooling coils inside the unit outdoors, if installed correctly. This is a normal condition. Like a cold glass of water sitting on a table or counter on a hot, muggy day; condensation will form.
The amount of condensation forming on the glass - and cooling coils of the A/C - is directly related to the amount of humidity in the air.
Some A/C units have fans that not only force cool air out the front of the unit - but also spray condensate on the condenser coils (the coils that get hot and are visible from the outside) to help cool them down.
If water is dripping indoors - the A/C is tilted inward or drain holes on the bottom edges of the rear (outdoors) are clogged. Adjust the A/C support(s) so that it is tilted back (the bottom rear should be about 1/2" or 10mm lower than the bottom front) and inspect & clear obstructions from the drain holes as needed.
Tip the AC slightly downward on the outside so that the water can drip outside. If should be a hole for the water to drip away, make sure it's not blocked. Close your windows and doors. As long as cool air is coming out of the AC, it's working.
That's what airconditioners do the remove heat and in the process they end up producing some condensation which needs to drain through the drain tube in order to keep the Air conditioner from flooding itself, PLEASE NOTE: The hotter the weather the more drainage you will notice.
Normally, an Air Conditioner removes water from the air and that water condenses on the coils of the inside section that does the cooling. The water condenses on the cooling coils just like moisture condenses on the outside of a glass of ice water. This excess water drains out of the cooling section through a "drip tube" and is supposed to drain outside of the house, or a drainage system. Your "drip tube" has either not been installed (if it is a brand new installation), has separated and water is now dripping into the house instead of outside of it. Or it is clogged. This happens when algae builds up inside the "drip pan". If that is the case, you can purchase "algaecide" tablets which kill the algae that is clogging the drip pan and preventing water from draining out through the drip tube. These tablets can be found in many hardware stores, refrigeration supply companies, or even Walmart. You can put a tablet inside the pan. (You will have to remove the cover of the unit). You can often use a little bit of Bleach and that will act as an algaecide. Hope this helps, Best, Mark
The outside setting is for bringing in the out side air,the closed keeps the air from the ac circulating and closes outside air off.The unit needs to be remove and took out side and cleaned out with a water hose,dirt and debris is keeping it from dripping out side,
My suggestion is to NOT pull the plug on the drain that should be covered with a sign that says...do not remove plug. Water is supposed to be kept in the pan. The interior wheel then helps the water keep the condenser cool....Ron
