My portable ac unit keeps filling with water and shutting off. Why is it shutting down once an hour and flashing p2?

if it's a window unit it needs to sit at an angle so the water can drain out of the back. Make sure the drain is unclogged

Portable haier air conditioner drainage. Cannot find drain hole and unable to tilt ac. Water is building up in the bottom of unit.

Here is a thought, received by me from a AC mechanic recently. Window ACs no longer actually drain concensate. Rather, the water is caught in a pan with the idea it will evaporate back into the outside air. The reason for this is the dripping water frequently resulted in the growth of algae below the unit resulting is unsightly stains and sometimes, slippery conditions. Evidently, there were a lot of complaints about being 'dripped on' also. So, AC manufacturers don't put drain holes in the bottom any more. If the pan over fills, it will spill out of many makes. If you want yours to drain, put a hole in the bottom.

Like I said, just a thought.

Thanks for your question @

How to drain the air conditioner commerical cool portable

Janie, since you didn't mention what brand and model number portable AC you have, I can only give you general directions.

On most unit's the drain plug is on the rear of the unit just above floor level. Some have a short section of vinyl hose that can be attached to assist in draining the water in to a pan or bowl. Others don't. However, you can use a low sided pan of bowl that will hold at least 1 quart of water and drain directly into it. Be sure the unit is turned OFF and unplugged, before attempting to drain the water. The other option is to disconnect the exhaust hose(s) and roll the unit to a floor drain or outdoors to drain it.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I would like a manual for this portable airconditioner. I need to llnow if I neede to drain the water from this unit?

Since you didn't mention who the manufacturer is and the model number, it makes it a little difficult. But, most all portable AC units drain the same way. There's a drain plug on the back of the unit, just above floor level. It may have a door cover over it, so you will have to remove it first, to access the drain plug.

There are 2 ways to drain the unit. Use a shallow sided pan, capable of holding 1 quart of water or roll the unit to a floor drain or outside, before removing the drain plug. The Drain Plug screws out. If you drain theunit into a pan, turn the unit OFF & Unplug it first.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Fedders AC leaking water from front, older model was in storage. Cant find the manual to make sure it's installed proper, or see if we need to clean somehting out. It leaks when it's running, then...

The unit needs to be tilted down 1/4/" to 1/2" on the outside of the window. Also check the drain pan's drain hole, under the unit (outside the window) for clogs. Doing all of this should solve the problem.

My amcor air conditioner is leaking water all over the floor. I drain it and it will only last less then 24 hours till it turns off, leaks all over an needs to be drained. Help!

I figured out the problem. My Amcor portable started leaking after the fill light came on for the first time in years. After doing some research I saw that it uses the water to cool some other part of the system to evaporate out the exhaust. So I took the ******* apart and messed with things. Finally I started pouring water into different trays and noticed it would not drain down from the top tray even when running. So I removed the top part and found the drain hole. Blasted that sum ***** with some compressed air and WAMMO it works again.

I have the same model and if you have been running the dehumidifier the internal water tank will fill with condensate water. You will need to unplug the black plug (in back of unit) to release the pints of water it has accumulated in the tank. Be sure to have a pan under the plug as it will drain immediately. Do not tip the portable unit if you need to put in a shower stall to drain, as water will leak out of the internal water tank into your unit. Hope this helps.
