SOURCE: Excessive Leak

Remove the plug and tilt the AC slightly downward on the outside so the water will flow outside where it is supposed to go. Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Water collected in the tray under the air handler.

Yes there is a clog in the drain, you can try a cloth hanger or a small drain auger, slug builds up and clog the drain it only takes a little to clog the flow and can easily be unclogged

SOURCE: I just did - the

The level of the unit is supposed to be slanting backwards so that the water thus collected gets drained out. Check to see if the level is that way. That is the only way that the water can be drained from the unit. It does not have to be inches lower than the front. Just a tenth of an inch or two.

Need to know if I can connect a drain hose/tube to my air conditioner model # FAX054-P7A1. I'm having a problem with water collecting in the window sill/track

Hello, the first thing is make sure the AC is tilted a bit in the window, if it is level the water will collect toward the front of the unit and drip inside. Second if there is a drain hole on tne unit then you can connect a hose to it and let it drain. However if there is no drain hole then the unit uses tne fan blade to splash the water on the condenser and since the condenser is warm/hot it will condense the water.

My window unit air conditioner unit is dripping profusely out of the bottom of the unit inside of my apartment. the drip pan is overflowing.

Hello, make sure the unit is tilted toward the outside a bit, if it is level the condensate will collect in the front and start dripping inside the house. Also, if the unit has a drain make sure it is clean so the water can drain out properly.

We conected for the first time a frigidaire portable air conditioner. I dont have the manual. It works great, but I don't know where am I suppose to connect the black thin hose that came with the a/c...

That black hose is for the drain as air conditioners collect moisture as a side effect of cooling the air. That black hose should connect on to the outside bottom of the unit. It wll flood if the drain hole or nipple are plugged or blocked off. The air conditioner, if a window model, should not sit level in the opening but canter slightly to the outside to help drain off that moisture collected. If the nipple is broken off you'll need to find a way to mount that hose in the hole without sticking up into the unit so it can drain the water off. The hose is necessary to keep the water flowing outside instead of flooding the opening or inside.
Hope this helps and please rate my solution!!

When automatic defrost operates, the water created collects inside the bottom of the refrigerator rather than draining into the exterior pan. Two different service men cleaned the exterior drain and coils.

Inside the freezer where the drain hole is is getting blocked with ice. If you have had it cleared twice already and the problem persist. The make something called a drain heater. This piece of metal wraps around the defrost heater and the sets down in the drain line heating everytime the heater does and causing any water that make have collected there to thaw and run out instead of freezing up and overflowing into your freezer.

Water on floor of refrigator. Our refrigator is a Frigidaire Crown series model no. F44Q18CC. We have never had the ice maker hooked up sence we owned our refrigator.We bought it about 5 years ago. Lately...

Water collects INSIDE the refrigerator ? It is coming from the freezer. You have a plugged up defrost drain - look for a drain cup inside your refrigerator section agains the wall, this leads to a plastic tube that connects through the back wall of your refrigerator down a drain tube - see if you can remove this and with an object pass it through the drain tube to dislodge anything obstructing the water passage - if you do not have a drain cup in refrigerator then look in your freezer behind the panel you should see a drain hole below the evap fan, where the ice melts and drains through the tube - if this area is iced up or blocked water will overflow to your refrigerator through the cooling vents :)

Drain Hole for Frigidaire Window Air Conditioner

Leave it alone. DO NOT attempt to create a drain. As long as a window A/C unit is installed properly, (angled slightly down toward the rear) it will drain excess water over the rear lower lip of the unit should it get that high. Many models use some of the collected water/condensation. It gets lifted up by the fan blades to cool the coil.

Water in the Unit

Most of the AC Unit lately are not made to drain. So when you have water collecting inside the unit, the condenser and the evaporator is suppose to help dissolve the water.
When water is collecting inside the appliance like that, it is either because the ac unit is not installed correctly or you live in a high humid area.
