Question about Danby Heating & Cooling
There is no drain on the unit and it has filled up as high as it can and no is spitting water into the house. The fan also makes a much louder noise than it did. I tipped and drained it and am now letting it dry before turning it on again. is there somewhere safe to drill a hole in the bottom to allow for drainage? Thanks.

I would suggest putting a condensate pump in the reservoir, find the tube that empties the water into the reservoir and direct that into the pump. You can run tubing from the pump to a sink or any other drain in the house that is convenient. Putting the pump inside the reservoir is a safe guard in case the pump fails, the water will fill and turn the unit off instead of flooding the floor. It would actually probably trip your breaker once the water hit the voltage on the pump but always better safe then sorry. Check out these pumps at amazon, you don't need anything fancy.

theres one near the back side on the outside part,they get plugged with bugs,leaves,debris,etc.,when its shut off look underneath and there is a drain hole on the bottom or on the rear ledge on either corner or both rear outside corners,make sure the unit has a slope toward the outside so most of the water drains there too,you can use a short piece of wire to clear these drain holes,if they are dirty enough you may need to unplug the unit and use a garden hose to dilute the debris so it flows out the drain holes

Make sure the filter and coil behind the filter are not dirty (I am sure you did that already) as this would cause icing and excess water build up. There may be a steel or plastic plug in the bottom rear of the unit. If not, I have drilled a hole in the very rear right or left side of some to help drain the water, but you need to be sure that nothing, nothing at all is on the otherside where you drill (No wires, no tubing, no compressor, etc,) as you will damage the unit. If it is a newer unit under warranty call the manufacturer as newer units disipate the water in the exhaust air and it may be malfunctioning or it may just be extremely humid ouside and the unit is struggling to disipate the water.

SOURCE: My frigidaire air conditioner is
The tray that holds the condensed water from the evaporator
may be clogged, it may be clogged before the cleanout hole,
where the tray joins the pvc, if this is the case you may have to
power down your ac unit, there is a panel on your heater unit
that you will have to access to expose the evaporator coils and
you will see the tray where the condensation builds up and flows
thru a pvc pipe to go outside. also make sure that the pipe going
outside is at a slope so that the condensation can flow and not
clog the pipe. make sure that water can flow from the tray thru
the cleanout hole. once you correct the problem. you need to reseal all the seams with duct tape or metalic tape, you can purchase at most hardware stores, to make sure their are no ac
cool air leaks other than thru your ac vents. good luck!
