Will my air conditioner still work properly...

I just went out to clean the drain holes in our GE window unit. Well, I didn't turn it off first and I hit 3 fan blades and broke them off! Will my air conditioner work OK now or am I in trouble?

There is no drain hole on this unit..if there is i cant find it...then the condesation runs down my walls...what should i do to find the drain


Window units usually drain through a notch behind the condenser or a hole in the bottom. If the unit is leaking chances are that it is not properly leveled. The unit should slope slightly downwards towards the rear of the unit. Water in the condenser pan is normal- it's an efficiency thing. If the unit is properly leveled and still leaks into the room then there may be dirt clogging the evaporator pan- refer to a service manual on how to take the unit from the case and properly clean it.

I recently noticed that my GE window airconditioner has been leaking on the inside of my window. It has cause my new wooden windsill to turn black from the condensation dripping onto the sill. I did not...


Actually, you may have two issues. The drain hole may be clogged and the rear of the unit may not have enough downward tilt, to allow the water to flow to the rear of the drip pan and ultimately out thru the drain hole. The general rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2" rear downward tilt.

As far as the drain hole is concerned, it can be hard to find at times. Because the clog will often times blend in the drain hole. Patience & persistence are required in locating it. A pipe cleaner works well to clear the clog.

Troubleshooting the above should help to solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

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.

My GE window unit air conditioner isn't blowing out very cool air,and it spits what


From what you have described, it sounds like the drip pan under the unit is full of water. This can be caused by the unit not being installed properly in the window. It must have 1/4' to 1/2" downward tilt at the rear. This allows the water in the drip pan, to flow to the rear and drain away thru the drain hole. Also, the drain hole may be clogged and needs to be cleared. The drain hole can be a challenge to find sometimes, as the clog can blend in with the hole. Be patient and persistent when looking for the drain hole. A pipe cleaner can be used to clear it.

I hope this helps and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My frigidaire window unit is leaking into my house. I removed the unit to clean the coils, this didn't remedy the problem. It is properly tilted to the outside.


behind the dilter is the evapator and behind the evaperator and underneath is the pan that holds the condensate. look at the pan and see how dirty if it is then clean it . Check the evap coil to be certain it is clean . and double check that it is tilted enough . 1 inch or a bit more hope this help let me know

Why isn't there drain holes in bottom of window air conditioner? I drilled a hole for water to drain. Is there a problem with this?


It shouldn't be a problem if you drilled the hole near the rear, outer edge of the drip pan and didn't accidentally pierce any of the mechanical above it. Also, be sure the rear of the unit is tilted down at least 1/4" to 1/2", so water will flow to it. Check the drain hole periodically, as they will become clogged over time.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The unit needs to be tilted down 1/4/" to 1/2" on the outside of the window. Also check the drain pan's drain hole, under the unit (outside the window) for clogs. Doing all of this should solve the problem.

Water inside unit, you can hear it when running. I know it's suppose to be normal in high humidity, but the unit was making a loud noise the other night so I had to turn it off. sounded like the fan


The unit is not draining properly. Make sure it is leaning back in the window. If you put a level on the top of the unit, it should be leaning back away from the window about a half bubble. If it still doesn't drain after this, the drain may be stopped up. The drain will either be in the bottom of the unit or on the back. If you try to clean the drain hole be careful not to use anything that will poke a hope in the rear coil. You can use compressed air.

Where is the drain hole on goldstar window ac my ac keeps dripping water inside the house


Hello, make sure the unit is tilted toward the outside a bit, if it is level the condensate will collect in the front and start dripping inside the house. Also, if the unit has a drain make sure it is clean so the water can drain out properly.

Window unit air conditioner


Sounds like a full cleanning job or the drain line is plugging up. First , check for A 10* lean toward the back of the unit for proper drainnage, 2- check for good air flow thru the front coils--(dirty filter --dirty coil and last ,add some clorox bleach all across the front coil while off>)
