We have a portable floor model Matag air conditioner and the drain water light is on and the air conditioner won't function. How do you drain the water from it? I can't find a tank to remove and empty.

    Thanks so much, without a manual we were dumbfounded. Our old one had a removeable tank and that was what we were looking for. Your prompt reply is much appreciated. Margie Carter

I dont know where the reservoir is in my air conditioner, is there a hose to hook up to drain the water becuase now it is leaking on my floor


On the Air-To Air Model, the majority of the moisture is supposed to exhausted out the exhaust hose and out the window. However, if it is extremely humid, the water collection tank will capture what is not exhausted. There is no hose, To drain it, there is a removable drain plug on the back of the unit, down near the floor level. You can either drain it in a low sided pan, that is capable of holding at least 1 quart of water. Or you can disconnect the unit and roll it to a floor drain (if you have one) or out doors to drain the water.

How to drain the air conditioner commerical cool portable


Janie, since you didn't mention what brand and model number portable AC you have, I can only give you general directions.

On most unit's the drain plug is on the rear of the unit just above floor level. Some have a short section of vinyl hose that can be attached to assist in draining the water in to a pan or bowl. Others don't. However, you can use a low sided pan of bowl that will hold at least 1 quart of water and drain directly into it. Be sure the unit is turned OFF and unplugged, before attempting to drain the water. The other option is to disconnect the exhaust hose(s) and roll the unit to a floor drain or outdoors to drain it.

Hi, I just purchased this used. It was working fine for one day, but now it won't turn on. Can u help? Haier CPN12XH9 12000 BTU Portable Air


If the water collection tank is full, it will not turn ON. Since you said the unit worked fine for one day and now it won't turn ON, more than likely, that's the problem. After draining the tank, the unit should reset itself and turn ON like it should.

The drain plug is on the rear of the unit, just above floor level. You can either drain it into a low sided pan or bowl that's capable of holding up yo a quart of water. O r roll the unit to a floor drain or outside to drain it. If you choose to drain it into a pan, turn the unit OFF & unplug it, before draining it.

I have a portable air conditioner model LP0711WNR. My issue is when I drain the air conditioner, it only drains about one cup of water. Then, when I turn it back on it and use it, after about an hour it...


The easiest way, is to tilt it over slightly when you drain it. But, be very careful doing this, as the unit has caster wheels and you don't want it to get away from you. If you have a helper, so much the better. Remember to always turn the unit OFF & Unplug it, before draining the water from the tank.

Kenmore portable air conditioner Model 484.35338 serial no AP0000320252 made in spain code X5RKMFE709/01 quit running after 4hrs run. DRAIN WATER light is on. How is the water drained?


The drain plug is on the rear of the unit, just above floor level. You can either drain it into a low sided pan that can hold a least a quart of water. Or roll it to an area, where you can allow it to just drain. If you drain it in place into a pan, be sure to turn the unit OFF & unplug it, before draining the water.
If you have misplaced your Owner's Manual, you can get one online from Sears Parts Direct.

My amcor air conditioner is leaking water all over the floor. I drain it and it will only last less then 24 hours till it turns off, leaks all over an needs to be drained. Help!


I figured out the problem. My Amcor portable started leaking after the fill light came on for the first time in years. After doing some research I saw that it uses the water to cool some other part of the system to evaporate out the exhaust. So I took the ******* apart and messed with things. Finally I started pouring water into different trays and noticed it would not drain down from the top tray even when running. So I removed the top part and found the drain hole. Blasted that sum ***** with some compressed air and WAMMO it works again.

Remove the water tank and look or feel up to where the float is at and see if it is stuck in the raised position. This is what is keeping the light on and not letting the compressor start.
