Water leaking around screw of ac vent in bedroom. it is a slow drip that is constant even when the ac shuts off


From what you described, it sounds like the drain hole in the condensation pan under the unit is clogged. Also, the unit may not be titled down enough at the rear of the unit. Generally, 1/4" to 1/2" is required, so that the water in the condensation pan will flow to the rear of the unit, where the drain hole is. These 2 things are where you need to start troubleshooting.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Water coming out of front of unit, thru vents leaking on floor


Darlene, if this is a window or thru the wall unit, the leaking is usually caused by two things:

1. The drain pan under the unit has a drain hole (in the rear outside part of the unit) that is clogged.
2. The AC unit is not tilted down at the rear 1/4" to 1/2", so that water will drain to the outside drain hole.

Be prudent when you look for the drain hole in the drain pan. As the clog can blend in with the drain hole, making it difficult to see.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Model: KFR-32GW/Ac Will not stop leaking water from the front of the unit. Coils have no ice. Shut off unit for 30 min the leaking stops but resumes when AC is turned back on.


Possible one of two problems. first make sure the unit is tilted away from the inside slightly. Second there are very small drains that let water flow from the front coil to the rear of the ac if the unit has been dirty it can plug these holes. You can find the holes by pulling the ac out or just remove it and use a hose to clean it. You can buy coil cleaner at a hardware store just follow the directions.

LG LWHD8000RY6 water leak -- gathers inside on the bottom and by the radiator


This may be due to two things, unclean unit, glugged drain holes…an easy way to do this is to pull the front vent off and see inside and see if you can caulk all around the inside and seal up the front by the vent so the water is forced out the front vent [you need to drill a little hole in the lower section of that front vent after you clean the unit and caulk the inside]
Look to see if the drain holes are clear and the water coming out from them either from the back or the bottom…I am not sure how much work you need to do but you may think about installing a hose to it to drain the water out better than the small hole in the back or front…make sure that the unit is little tilted to the side that you have the vent hole at…
This unit discharge lots of water during heat humidity, etc. or dirt built up on the condensing unit on the back, so cleaning may be with vacuum, water pressure, or just by hand, it is up to you… let me know how that work for you and please do not forget to rate my service so we can improve on it with your help. God bless

Mothers AC unit


That has nothing to do with the water. Sounds to me like it needs cleanning, (the water is not drainning toward the back of the unit) ,,(dirty filter, which its trying to **** air anywhere it can even thru the drain hole, or not enough slope, leanning toward the back so gravity can flow the water to the back of the coil! Thank you-very-much!
