Question about Heating & Cooling
We bought this ac unit a little over a month ago. Recently it has started making rattling noises and blowing out water where the cool air comes out. We've had a LOT of rain this last week so I don't know if that is the problem? I cleaned the filter but that didn't seem to help... Thanks to anyone who has some suggestions...
If the unit is new and tilted enough toward the outside, the rain should not be a factor as far as water blowing out. It will make some rattling noises on the outside more so when its raining or high humidity because the outside fan throws water onto the condenser coil. Sounds like to me that its not draining to the outside.. It shouldn't be dirty enough for the drain paths to be filled with crud. Tilting it more to the outside should fix it. Hope this helps. kstfas

I have the same problem. I can't get the water to drain. I almost have to trun it on its side to get the water out. ONce it fills up, the fan splashes on the water accumulated inside. I bought two drill bits to drill holes in the bottom. I thought I would get an answer here, but it seems to me that the best solution is to drill the hole. I suggest you get a thin metal bit to make the guide hole, and then a bigger one to finish it off. The thing you need to be most careful about is not puncturing a freon line. If you do that, you might as well toss it. I would even consider opening up the unit, and drilling from the inside out to avoid piercing a line or accidentaly hurting something else.
