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.

I have a Fedders Window Air conditioner, model A2008F2BG. It was working great until today. Now it comes on but the fan wont blow much air. Any ideas?


I believe that is an older window unit. I don't know how difficult it is to get to the fan, but I would check to see if it can be cleaned, then see if there is any insulation or anything that is blocking air flow. I am assuming the filter is clean?

Why isn't my Sunbeam Window A/C blowing hard on high?


If the air doesn't seem cool enough it is necessary to use a thermometer to check the difference in temperature between the air going into the unit and the air being blown into the room. Ideally, the temperature difference should be more than 15 degrees. For example, if the temperature going into the air conditioner is 80 degrees, the temperature coming out of the unit should be at least 65 degrees or less. If the difference is 15 degrees or more there is probably no cause for concern. If the temperature difference is less than 15 degrees you should check the following:

  • Air damper

Check to make sure the air damper is closed. If it's open, it will bring in outside air and reduce the efficiency of the unit.

  • Back cover

During the winter season many people cover their air conditioners to protect the unit from the weather. In the spring or summer they will sometimes forget to remove the cover. If your unit has a cover on the outside portion of the air conditioner remove the cover first.

  • Condensing coils

The condensing coils will always be on the "warm" side of the air conditioner. That is, on the side that faces outside of the room to be cooled. Air is drawn into the back of the air conditioner on the sides through vent slots and is blown directly out through the condenser coils. If the coils get clogged with lint, dust and dirt the cooling system cannot provide the cooling necessary. To clean the coils it will be necessary to remove the entire cover of the air conditioner or pull it out of the wall to gain access to the coils. They can be cleaned by blowing compressed air at them or by using a soft bristle brush to wipe the dirt off. It is important to also clean any dirt or lint build-up in the bottom of the air conditioner so the condensate water will be picked up by the condensing fan slinger properly.

My portable a/c continues to leak water from the bottom when in use. I have a hose attached to the spout in the back, but it still leaves a puddle and almost nothing drains out the back. It's a sunbeam...


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.
