Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I just had two Kenmore 75251 24500 window units placed by pro installers into a large room well within the square foot rating, the units "spit" water droplets out of the cold air vents, the temp was 86 and the humity was high. Is this normal? Thanks Randy

You need to better balance the blower speed and the temperature setting until you get the air in that room conditioned to where there is not as much moisture. Too little air passing over the coils results in poor cooling and a tendency for the unit to frost up ------too much air passing over the coils too quickly results in poor cooling and poor dehumidification of the moist air

I HAVE A KENMORE A/C THAT SPITS WATER INTO THE ROOM AFTER RUNNING ABOUT 15 MIN AT A TIME. THE COMPANY I BOUGHT IT FROM WILL NOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT THIS. IWISH YOU COULD GIVE ME A SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM.


While you didnt say i suppose its window a/c and not a certral unit
the drain for teh condensate water is clogged and the fan is picking up the water and "stipping it out" go outside and clean the drain in the corner of the cabinet

It is 106 degrees outside, I have a a/c unit which is cooling at 75 degrees in a 1180 square foot townhouse apartment, this seems like the unit is doing all it can with the excessive heat, is it


Unfortunately, 7000 Btu's will not cool 1180 sq ft. At best, it's rated for 400 sq ft, as it's only rated as a "Room Air Conditioner". To cool 1180 square feet, you'll need at least 30,000 Btu's (like in Central Air Conditioning) or 4 more window units spread out throughout the condo. It takes more Btu's to cool, than it does to heat.

I really sorry. I wish I had better news for you. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Haier 5500 window unit, spits water into the room sometimes. Also, water "sloshes" around inside the fan area & is quite noisy sometimes. ? Thankyou for your assistance...


You will need to reposition the unit to where it will be tilted downwards slightly outside.
The water will then flow out the back and not spit into the room.

Water in air conditioner


A lot of the newer window units design the outside fan to pickup the condensate water and sling it onto the coil. The evaporative effect makes the unit run more efficiently. They ususally don't spit, but if the unit is running well, otherwise, I would't worry about it.

(Tilted) Plasmaire spits water into room....


What your problem is is that water coming back into your face is condesation. Appearently there is a clog preventing your condensation water from draining out the back side of the a/c You can remove the a/c from it's sleeve, take it outside and with a pump sprayer (Type used for spraying insecticide) filled with water spray around the base of the a/c where the condensor coil sits (you should see a small drain channel in this area) If this drain channel is clogged water will back up and the squirrel cage will pick it up throwing it out into the house.. Good Luck on your repairs

Sears Plasmaire spits water into room


It's probably just holding water somewhere and getting thrown out. I've seen people drill holes on the bottoms to drain water quicker.

Mitsubishi Through the Wall Unit Does Not Remove Humidity


You were told incorectly. From what you are describing the unit is oversized for your space.

All Air conditioners remove humidity. In fact the Air conditioner was invented by accedent by Mr carrier when he was trying to invent a machine to remove humidity. He discovered that by drawing air accross a cold coil the humidity drained off the coil. He also discovered that it was a mighty effective way to cool large quantities of air, and we then had "Carrier" air conditioning systems.

When a system is to large for the area it is to cool, it will cool the air in that small area so fast that the humidity starts to condense in the room before it can be pulled through the evaprator coil.

In this case, the solution would to be either replace the unit with a smaller one.
Increase the area to be cooled. (open doors to other rooms etc). or use the dehumidifier.

How many square foot is the space you are trying to cool?
What size is the AC unit? (in "tons")

Frigidaire window unit spits water into room


To be honest with you this is a good and a bad thing. The bad thing is that it is spitting water into the room. The good thing is that the unit is running Great. The amount of humidity it is removing. is greater and faster than it can run down and off the coil. See if there is any possible way to deflect the water. i would recommend trying to attach a piece of screen door material. It will likely keep the water from going through it.
