    its new out of the box there would be no build up yet its not a day old. what i want to know is if there is a drain line somewhere on the thing inside it or near what looks like a drain whole on the bottom of the unit that i need to open or connect somehow to make it drain. nothing in the user manual about draining at all. its not installed yet im not going to install the thing until i get it working first.

If you can find the drain line outside it probably is is white pvc or black polyurethane i use a wet vac. and secure it with tape so you get a better suction. If its upstairs there is probiably a second one so do both just incase. After time fungus builds up and can cause it to over flow try that see what you get out of it. if it doesnt work thetimnelson@yahoo.com

    The newer units are not supposed to drain condensate. The condensate is used to increase efficiency by using a slinger ring to throw condensate on the outside coil. Removing the condensate will reduce the units efficiency. Use an algaecide (such as for home ponds that is safe for pets) if the algae needs removal.

My unit is throwing water out of the front vents not a lot. It sound like the fan blade is hitting water It still cools but makes a loud noise .R bordeaux


The water and noise you hear is from the fan blades hitting backed up water in the drip pan. This occurs when the drain hole near the rear of the drain pan is clogged and/or the rear of the unit does not have enough downward tilt. Which allows the water to flow freely to the drain hole. The general rule of thumb for downward tilt is 1/4" to 1/2". Correcting these to things should solve the problem. Be sure to turn the unit OFF & Unplug it, before attempting remedial service work on the unit.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Water builds up in Air condition and does not drain out...So when airconditon is turned off, the water drains inside home rather than outside. How do I fix this?


Check the filter and service it while your at it. You may have a drain hose with this unit if so it could well be plugged so you sill have to pull it to get to it and clean it out as well as the drain tray. If you donot havea hose then it just needs to be tilted to theoutside about 1 inch or so. hope this helps let me know Jon

We got our unit about a week ago brand new ... It has been building up ice inside and spitting out water!


Have you checked to see if drains are at back, and unit requires a slight tilt down and out the window?
Most do.

Water not pumping out in the spin cycle anymore


Check the drain pump and drain hoses. The drain pump is located in front of the motor. To access it, remove the end caps from the console. Remove the 2 screw holding the console to the cabinet. Pull the bottom of the console toward you slightly and flip the console up. Unplug the lid switch molex connector. Inserting a flat screwdriver from the top and pushing back, remove the brass clips on each side. Open the lid. Holding the inside of the cabinet, tilt it toward you and remove it from the base. This will give you access to everything including the drain pump and the drain hoses. Try to remove as much water as possible from the inside since it will all come out when you remove the drain hoses from the pump (hopefully you are near a drain in the floor). Remove the hose clamps and check the hoses and pump for any obstructions. Chances are, you will find a missing sock.
If it all looks clear, remove the drain pump from the motor and inspect where the pump connects to the motor for a broken connection slot. Replace the drain pump if necessary.
Good luck!

Hi, It probably needs cleaned. Window units naturally create water in the evaporator area. The water is suppose to drain to the back of the unit through passage ways to the condensing area where the slinger ring on the condenser fan blade slings it into the condenser coil making it more efficient. There is usually a drain hole to drain excess water from the back of the unit. Any dirt or algae in the pathway of this water or the wrong tilt will cause water to build up and drip or blow out the front. Anything touching the evaporator coil allowing water to run down the obstacle into the wrong area will cause the same thing. reduced air flow will cause the evap to freeze which could also cause a water problem. Since the tilt is right and it doesn't seem to be freezing, Maybe a temporary increase in tilt and a dropper of bleach at the base of the evaporator would do it. This will kill the algae and may unblock the water flow. NOTE: It may also cause stains on a carpet or floor if the bleach water drips onto it. If you want to pull it out and clean it, most units can be pulled out of the housing and sprayed with a water hose but you need to be careful not to get water in the electrical parts of the unit. They can be covered with plastic or foil. Make sure you unplug the unit before trying to remove it. You may have to remove some screws to remove it from the housing. Hope this has helped. kstfas
