Replace reset switch or bypass it to make sure it is the problem. Check for low voltage while the unit is on. Shoud stay above 105 vac

Check the drain tube between the evaporator side to the back of the unit. It may have a packing plug installed. If there is one remove it or clean the drain tube.

Sounds like your tstat could use some attention. The broken bar sounds like a low battery indicator. To verify wether the tstat is working correctly you can try bridging the R and W wires (after the thermostat) to set a call for heat. Be careful when you do this as you could short or blow your circuit board and other sensitive electrical parts. The R terminal is 24v power and when you bridge R and W you send 24v to the circuit board which indicates a call for heat. W is heat Y is cooling. If nothing happens still then you should call a technician as you may have broken parts and will require replacing.

Unplugging the unit lets the tiny computer like microprocessor reset--means problem is in the brain of the unit or its power circuit.

It's hard to know which one needs replacing, without testing the outlet first. Unplug the AC unit and outlet in a lamp or some other electrical appliance to see if the outlet works as it should. If does function correctly, then the problem is in the AC unit. But, buying a new power cord will probably not solve the problem. More than likely, one of the circuits or sensors in the control panel got fried, when the water got into the outlet and shorted it out. That's why the reset button n the cord won't reset.
Depending on the age of the uni, you may want to consider having it repaired, rather than replacing it. But, if it's 5 years old or older, I'd opt for replacement.

Now, lets address what caused the problem. Either the drain hole in the drip pan was clogged and or the rear of the AC unit did have enough downward tilt. The general rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2" rear downward tilt. This allows the water collected in the drip pan to flow to the rear of the unit and drain away thru the drain hole. Whether you repair or replace the unit, keep this in mind.

I hope I was able to help you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Compressor may be locking up. Run capacitor may be weak or loose wire. Sounds like major voltage drop off as unit head pressure increases.
