Need to incline the unit so that it will drain out . Drop it down a bit from the back and it should be okay.

How to repatch small sheetrock holes in walls

Well here is a tip that im shure you will enjoy!
How to patch a hole in your wall !
Don,t worry about cutting from stud to stud so you have something to screw too, just cut out a piece of sheetrock alittle larger then your hole ,
Then take your cut sheetrock piece and put it over the hole!
Then take a pencil and trace the cut sheetrock over the hole
Then cut out the hole to the size of the traced piece of sheetrock

OK here comes the fun part: Take 2 larger wooden paint mixing sticks (you can get them at any paint store , sherwin williams,ben moore, home,depot , sears, wallmart, get the idea! and there always free so stock up for future holes,

Now take one stick and put it into the hole so that both top and bottom of the stick are equal lengths so that you can put 1 screw countersunk on both ends from the wall side ...what that screw is doing is making a secur backing for you to screw your cut piece of sheetrock to! ...but one is not enough so get that 2nd paint stick out and stick that also behind the wall and screw it from outside at top and bottom your ready to screw that piece of sheetrock to the painsticks ..after thats done just tape and spackle ...once you try this you will always use this technique ,,GUARANTEED!..good luck and happy repairs, glenn

Leaking problem coming into the house

If your AC unit is a window or thru the wall unit, the problems lies either with a clogged drain hole in the drain pan and/or the rear outside part of the unit is not tilted down enough, It should be tilted down 1/4" to 1/2". The drain hole is on the outside part of the unit, under the drain pan. It can be hard to locate at times, as the clog blends in with the drip pan. Be persistent, look closely and you'll find it. AS pipe cleaner or something similar (No wire Coat Hangers) can be used to clear the clog.

I hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

Water coming out of front of unit, thru vents leaking on floor

Darlene, if this is a window or thru the wall unit, the leaking is usually caused by two things:

1. The drain pan under the unit has a drain hole (in the rear outside part of the unit) that is clogged.
2. The AC unit is not tilted down at the rear 1/4" to 1/2", so that water will drain to the outside drain hole.

Be prudent when you look for the drain hole in the drain pan. As the clog can blend in with the drain hole, making it difficult to see.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

I just fininsh a room in the attic and I want to put a baseboard electric heater. which is the best way to run the wire from the attice to basement? Thanks

Wow - You're looking at quite the job!! The wire needs to be protected inside the walls or at the least inside conduit along the outside of the house - but that wouldn't be too pretty. I suggest getting yourself an Electricians fishtape ( if you don't already have one ) and choose a point either inside a closet or in a visually hidden location you can drill through the floors and the walls to fish your romex through. If all walls are sheetrock, you may have to literally cut a channel into the wall ( use a good metal detector to find existing electric and plumbing so you can miss those ) , bury the wire, and backfill with plaster or sheetrock mud. Either way, have patience - it is a long road you're going down. The easiest way ( not the prettiest, or necessarily legal in your area ) is to run some conduit vertically along the outside of the building and fish your wire into it. Get some wiresnot to help reduce friction and simplify the pulling of the wire in the conduit.Punch your hole through the basement and attic walls and make sure you seal those holes real good with silicone. Check first with your local city and or county building code enforcement office for the legality of externally mounted conduit / wire.
Hope this helps!

Drainage occurs near the front of the unit, resulting in pools of water leaking onto my window sill. Unit is installed properly, there is no drain hole to direct water away from the insides of the walls...

The A/C unit should be tilted slightly to the rear and this will allow the water to leak to the outside of the window, you may have to drill a small hole in the case to drain if there is no pre-existing hole.

My wall unit is leaking in my outside walls .and it doesnt have a drain on the back of the unit.

I hear about this problem a lot. The most likely cause is that the unit isn't tipped toward the outside of the building and/or the drain holes in the pan are plugged. Also, it's important to keep an A/C unit clean. It should be cleaned at least annually to ensure that the pan isn't dirty, the coils are clean, and that the fans and filters aren't caked up.

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.

Wall a/c is leaking water down log wall and puddling on floor.

When you sealed the holes outside, you trapped the water inside. The unit is designed to let the water run to the bottom of the pan and then go out the holes outside. Try unplugging one of them and see if that fixes the problem. Hope this helps.
