When an airconditioner leaks water it is usually from the drains being blocked with build up. The easiest way to take care of this problem is to use a wet vac, and suction the blockage out. Your drain is located outside. It will most likely be made of pvc. That is where you apply the suction.

My AC unit leaks water inside

Isidro, If it's a window unit you will need to tilt it up from the inside. Thank you and please leave me feedback. Clean around the bottom of any debris so it can drain on the outside.

How to stop portable air conditioner leaking water

I heard that some portable air conditioners can leak water from the unit after being operated for about an hour or so if they are not on a level floor. <br /> I solved this with my DeLonghi air con after discovering the floor my unit was on had about 1 - 2 mm difference from one side to the other. By buying a small builder's liquid level (like you use to keep a line of bricks aligned) I used a small piece of wood (ruler thickness) under one side of the air con and no more leaks! Hope this helps someone. Kez, Perth WA

Why is my air con leaking out the front of it I want to get to the overflow pipe inside but dont know how to remove the front caseing other than the filter part

Check where the condensate pipe goes onto the ground first as sometime spiders or wasps will block the end of the pipe. It is unlikely that the pipe is blocked inside although as you have seen the water does flow out inside..

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.

I have water leaking through the ceiling under where the Air con is. I have checked the drainage pipe and blown it clean but still getting water comng through the ceiling. Is there any wher else I can...

You need to determine if it is coming from your Air Handler. If it is, and you are confident that the drainage pipe is clear, then you could have a cracked condensate pan. I would suggest shutting the system off and opening it up to inspect the inside of your system. If there is ice present on the coil, check your filter and the cleanliness of the coil. If both are okay, call a contractor.....there could be a problem with airflow or refrigerant levels. If there is no ice present, check the bottom of the unit, if it is wet, it could be a leaking condensate pan (the part the drainage pipe taps into). You can shut the system off with the fan running and allow the inside to dry out......then begin pouring water into into the pan and watch to see if it leaks out...or if the unit is draining. If it is leaking, you should consult a contractor. Generally speaking, condensate pans cannot generally be repaired....and being that it is located in your attic, it's not worth the risk.
In Summary:
Ensure your air filter(s) is clean
Ensure your airflow is not impeded by closed or blocked off vents
Ensure your evaporator coil (located inside your unit) is not clogged with dirt/debris
Ensure your blower wheel is clean.
Ensure your condensate pan is not leaking.
If these steps do not help to correct the problem, contact a professional.

Let us know if you found this information helpful and Good Luck! :-)

Water leaking out of unit, not out of flow tube.

Some models have a hose, some don't , maybe the drain hole it's restricted, condensor normally it's in the back of the unit, you might have to remove one of the side panels.

LG LWHD8000RY6 water leak -- gathers inside on the bottom and by the radiator

This may be due to two things, unclean unit, glugged drain holes…an easy way to do this is to pull the front vent off and see inside and see if you can caulk all around the inside and seal up the front by the vent so the water is forced out the front vent [you need to drill a little hole in the lower section of that front vent after you clean the unit and caulk the inside]
Look to see if the drain holes are clear and the water coming out from them either from the back or the bottom…I am not sure how much work you need to do but you may think about installing a hose to it to drain the water out better than the small hole in the back or front…make sure that the unit is little tilted to the side that you have the vent hole at…
This unit discharge lots of water during heat humidity, etc. or dirt built up on the condensing unit on the back, so cleaning may be with vacuum, water pressure, or just by hand, it is up to you… let me know how that work for you and please do not forget to rate my service so we can improve on it with your help. God bless
