The 5 degree tilt is a recommendation so that the drain pan would not get flooded. Just make sure the outsied part of the airconditioner is lower or tilted.

Haier Model# HWF05XCK-L 5000 BTU window air conditioner is leaking underneath and spitting water out of the top. It was installed as recommended.

The problem you're experiencing is generally caused by the rear of the unit not being tilted down enough. 1/4" to 1/2" is the general rule. This allows collected water in the drip pan, to run to the rear of the unit, where the drain hole is located. It would also be prudent, to check the drain hole under the drip pan, to see if it's clogged. It can be cleared with a pipe cleaner.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My window airconditioner sounds like it has water in it and now its spitting out water in the room?

This can be caused by 2 things:

The drain pan hole is clogged and water is backing up in the pan. Look under the outside part of the AC unit for the drain hole and clear it. It may be hard to find, as the clog will blend in with the hole.

The unit was installed incorrectly and the outside portion (outside the wall) of the unit is not tilted down 1/4" to 1/2". Which allows the water to run to the drain plug.

Correcting either or both of the above 2 things, should solve the problem.

When the airconditioner is on cool.Water comes from the airconditioner inside and dripping on the floor.

If it's a car air conditioner, your condensate drain line is clogged. If it's a home window unit, it needs to be tilted outward more. The downward tilt should be no less than 1/4" per foot. If your unit is 18" from the window to the back of the unit, the back should be 3/8" lower that at the window....minimum.

Just moved and installed my LG airconditioner. it does not cool, but warms.

Check it's in cool mode and temp setting is 3 degree less than room temp Check compressor is working with required pressure.60 PSI@ 98 degree Fahrenheit of ambient temp.If less pressure or no pressure, gas leak. Arrest leak and recharge gas.

Kenmore air conditioner is leaking

Your A/C have to be tilted to the out side of the windows!!! It will drain it self to the sidewalk.
Do not set your A/C horizontally perfect!!!
It has to have tilt up to 15 degrees to the outside of a window.
Outside should be lower than in side.
