My portable ac isn't draining water. it's working but not draining the condensation off of the coils. how do I fix it

I have used it for 4-5 days but am worried it will burn out. I can tilt it some and get some water out. It's almost like its in there some where but not going into the drainage container. it's not going onto the floor or anything else that I see.

Water leak


Please CLICK HERE for some very useful info.

This is a very common problem that is easily solved. The way your air conditioner dries your house is by removing moisture. That moisture must go some where. The moisture is removed by condensing it on the cold refrigeration coils and letting it run down a drain pan.
The problem is that dirt and crud will stop up the drain line and clog the pan. This will eventually happen to every system out there give it enough time.
While this problem makes a terrible mess and seems like to end of your system it is really quite easy to fix. Most system simply use a 3/4 inch PVC pipe to drain the water to a floor drain or sink. when (not if) this drain clogs the drain pan over flows (especially when the fan stops) and you have a mess.
Fixing this problem is rather easy. Simply take a wet dry vacuum and **** the drain line clean, 9 times out of 10 this will fix it and that is the last of this problem you will have for a few years. If the drain pan is really dirty then you will have to take the covers off the unit and vacuum it out. In extreme cases you may have to use compressed air, nitrogen or CO2 to blow out the drain line (expect a big mess at the other end).If you don't have either avaliable you can use the Garden hose to flush the line backwards (expect an even bigger mess on the other end)
In rare cases you may actually have a hole in the coil drain pan in which case the coil or the pan will have to be replaced especially if it is steel (but this is rare). In other rare cases we have had situations where grease or oil fumes from the furnace have condensed on the coil and caused the water to fall off the coil. When this happens you must clean the coil with soap or some solvent.
If the coil is totally stopped up the back pressure from the fan/blower can force the water out of the pan by undermining the bottom of the coil. When the coil is this dirty the coil usually needs to be replaced. You will also notice little or no air flow.
In most cases these condensate leaks are a do it yourself repair. Only if you must take the unit apart and can't, do you really need to call for help.Here is a device that will allow you to clean the drain with ease and
not have to take it apart each time.

There technically isn't a drain pan in AC units. Some have a little hole in the back, some do not. If they do not, then the evaporator fan "slings" up the water accumulated from the condensation in the air, unto the coil to help cool the inside of the unit. If there is no hole, do not drill into the machine. You are likely to hit a sealed system component and damage the unit entirely.

I have a 1986 Jamboree and the Duo Therm Roof AC is dripping (pouring) in to RV and onto the floor. How can I fix this problem.

You will have to go up on the roof, take the cover off of the unit, and check the condensate drain. It is probably stopped up with dirt, etc. The condensate pan and drain are underneath the evaporator coil which is the "cold " coil. While you are at it, you should also check the rear coil that blows out the hot air on the roof and make sure it isn't stopped up as well. You can clean a condensate pan out with compressed air or maybe even a shop vac depending on the unit. The only other thing it could be is if the pan itself is rusted out.

We have a MSS3.3 air con and it seems to spit out drips of water, can u tell me why, is there something we need fixed on it

Water vapor in the air is condensing on the expansion coils. Typically the water should run down the coils and drip out a drain at the bottom of the AC unit. Over time, the drain can become plugged with dust from the air, and when that happens the water can build up inside the AC and it will blow into the refrigerated side.
But sometimes, if there is a high amount of humidity in the air, the condensate will just blow off the cold expansion coils and there isn't much you can do about it.

Water leaks out all over the floor from the window air conditioner

you need to make sure of two things.

1) the AC is 'tilted backwards' just a little bit - to allow the water (condensate water from the evap coil) to drip from the bottom of the AC - out the 'condensate drain hole' - sometimes into a drain hose (usually rubber) or just through the hole to somewhere outside where it doesn't hurt anything.

2) make sure the - condensate drain hole, and drain hose - (if one is used) is clear and not clogged up - to allow the condensate water to drain.

hope this helps

I don't know where to put the water. Its been draining water but I don't know how to refill it.

It makes water on it's own , thats the condensation from the Air conditioning process itself.

Better not to use the small water condensation drawer, rather use a bucket with the drain hose supplyed with the system. it holds alot more water and you shouldn't ever get the P-1 error code because of having the drawer full of water or the drawer switch missaligned.

If you do use the water drawer be careful and gentle when putting it back in after emptying it. It has a switch in it that makes contacts for the AC unit to work in AC mode and not just fan Mode.

The fan will always turn on unless it goes out, but the AC when it is on will sound diffrent when working it should sound a bit like a air compresser at the gas station because that is basicly what it is.

Everstar portable ac fills the overflow water bucket in one day. Why?

Air conditioners cause the moisture in the air to condense on the evaporator coil. The water that is created needs to have somewhere to drain. If the unit is in a humid environment, it will create allot of condensation. This kind of operation is not uncommon.
