I have an everstar mpk-10cr and it leaks water out

I have an everstar mpk-10cr portable A/C and it leaks water out of a drain at the middle bottom of unit. I do not know if a cap is suppose to be installed there or not. I plugged it up but water did not go into the normal receptacle. Took out plug and water gushed out.

    My everstar mpk-10cr portable A/C leaks water out of the very bottom hose on the back of the unit. I do not know if there is a cap missing or not. I taped up the end of the hose since I did not have a cap to see if the water would go to the receptacle on the side like it is suppose to. This recptacle can be pulled out to empty, if it fills up it will cut off the condenser and not produce any more water. Ideas???????

This cap must be in place in all coolers I have seen. Frequently there is a gasket that is identical to the type used on a common garden hose. It needs to be clean and free of cracks. They only cost pennies. I don't understand what you mean by "I plugged it up but water did not go into the normal receptacle."

I will assume you mean that this is a manually filled unit and not attached to a water source. If that is the case give me more details on what you mean.

    jalford2Forget everything said up to this point. This sounds like an air conditioner and not and an evaporative cooler. If that is true then then you have water condensing on the coils and that has to be drained off or the collection bucket emptied regularly. If you are where it is humid that could be quite often. The drain you speak of is so you can add a drain hose to siphon off the water and not have to empty the bucket. There is probably a safety switch that cuts off the compressor when the bucket gets too full.

Water leaking

Water can fall off of coil prematurely, before it reaches the drain pan, sometimes due to debris on the coil surface, airflow turbulence in the return air box, and in some instances I've never resolved until the machine was replaced. The drain pan could be cracked or have blocked channels that allow water to drain from the rear to the front. It could also have ice on it/freezing up. Some will developed a thin sheet of ice and drip water. The drain line may be stopped up or broken/loose fitting. Some coils have a laminate on the aluminum fins that can deteriorate. Hope this gives you something to check!

My Everstar portable air conditioner model# MPK-10CR-1 will not drain into the bucket that comes with it. It is draining into the tray at the bottom of the unit then the unit turns off when the tray is...

Simple I believe...just run a weed eater line up the whole in the back where you have the clear tube. You can take the little back door off the power cord area to see inside where the water drips into the little tray before it goes down the hose tube. Water debris sometimes blocks the water from draining properely. The weedeateer line will clear the blockage and it will begin flowing again.
