Humidity is where the water comes from. If humidity is low, very little if any, water.

    What if you live in a high humidity climate? You can'y control outside humidity.

Check the weep holes in the bottom of unit. It is holding water and when it does flood itself it will be inside with you.

Haier portable AC water collection tank full in one hour.


My unit was working fine for a couple years but now it won't evaporate. It still cools fine but it also collects about 16 ounces of water every hour and then shuts itself off until I drain it. I'm wondering it the evaporative mechanism it broken some how.

My Kenmore window ac unit cools ok but makes a clicking/clacking sound while it runs. The cooling fan turns properly and it drains outside but has started to drain a little inside-it is angled to drain...


From everything you described, it sounds like more water than usual is collecting in the drip fan. Despite the unit draining out the rear drain hole. Check the drain hole to make sure it is totally clear and not partially clogged. A pipe cleaner works well to do this. Be sure to turn the unit OFF & unplug it, before working on it.

Hope this helped you and tanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a 6000 btu window unit. I was wanting to know how the unit drains the water. where does the water come out of the unit at? I could not find a drain hole.


No drain holes on most units that size

The water gets from the front evaporator thru
a small hole you can not see

Then it finds it's way to the outside or back on the
bottom metal pan

It is evaporated by the condensor fan

It may drain out over the rear pan lip, if
it gets alot, but no drain hole is necessary

You can angle the unit down at the outside or
rear & you can drill a small hole, but it uses the water
to cool the condenser

WATER DRAINING UNDER LEFT FRONT...other than that it works fine


The window unit needs to have a god tilt on it aiming it outside,and remove the unit and clean the unit out with a water hose ,make sure the bottom of the ac unit has all the debris removed.

Ac unit keeps reading fl or full. every 2-3 hours. auto clean button drains out about 1/4 a gallon of water and then stops draining. turn back on ac & repeat process every 2-3 hours. I have tried...


After reading over the Owner's Manual for your unit, I wonder if you are operating it in the Cool & Dry Mode. If that's the case, the dehumidifier is in operation, which would account for having to drain the unit every 2 to 3 hours. Ideally, the Cool and Dry Mode should only be operated for about an hour, when the unit is first started . Removing the humidity will allow the AC function to cool more effectively. But, it is not necessary for it to remain in Cool & Dry mode all the time. Because the AC itself unit will remove some humidity too.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the issue of having to drain the unit every 2 to 3 hours

It sounds like raindrops inside my window ac


when the humidity is high it condenses on the evaporator .. that water runs out of a drain if the unit is properly mounted . a little of the water is retained and is used to help cool the condenser coil ... thats the sound you hear .. water is being picked up by the fan and splashed over the condenser coil to help increase the efficiency of the unit ... if the unit is mounted such that its tilted in a little then you may get too much retained water ... the same if the drain is clogged .. but a little water splashing around is normal and a desirable thing to increase efficiency ... check the mounting angle and the outside condensate drain,,

Water leaking inward


There should be a drip tray that catches all the condensation and funnels it out the back. Check for holes, cracks or a plugged drain hole.

Just purchased a 15000 btu 110 Frigidaire window unit and we love it. However, since the rear of the AC is actually on the back porch, the water from the AC runs down the wall and on to the floor. We could...


window units slide into an outside frame section
there is a hose attachment area at the back of the ac unit proper that a hose can be attached to
and there should be a section in the frame that allows the hose to be fitted to that ac unit proper
the unit should be mounted so that it actually slopes slightly down at the rear so water can collect at that drain point
there are adaptors that should have come in the packing box for hose attachment
if not, many people use white poly piping or electrical conduit with suitable elbows to collect the water at the hole and pipe it back to the wall into a bucket and the collected water used to water plants and gardens

Haier AC HWR10xc6


Haier Air Conditioners do not have a drain hole or hose like most A/Cs. This problem can easily be solved by carefully drililng about an 1/8 or 1/4 inch hole in the bottom outside edge directly on the metal frame, around the cooling fins.... This will elt the water drain out...if you when outside and looked in while it was spitting you would see the water pooling up in there. Haier expects us to mount these units at an ungodly angle to drain the water, but drilling a small hole will help (really anywhere in that bottom plate would work since the whole bottom is a "drain pan"
