Re: Is something wrong?
YOUR UNIT HAS A CLOGG IN THE DRAIN SYSTEM OR IS PITCHED WRONG.LOOK IN THE BACK FOR A DRAIN HOLE AND MAKE SURE IT IS PITCHED TOWARD THE HOLE. IF IT IS CLOGGED TRY AND POUR A HALF CUP OF BLEACH AT THE BOTTOM OF THE EVAPORATOR COIL
If this happens to be a "window" type of unit, your water is usually dissolved by a slinger ring at the rear of your unit. Make sure that your unit is pitched towards the rear making the water run in that direction.

Hello, usually a window AC will spit water if the unit is not tilted back or if the drain is backed up, if the unit is level try tilting it back it the window somewhat. Also, if the unit does have a drain make sure it is not blocked.
I got this tip from this site yesterday when my Haeir A/C window unit began spitting water. Look for either a hole on the bottom edge of unit or a horizontal **** on bottom of unit it will either be in the front or back, take a toothpick or if your A/C is in a window unit and your target is on outside, take a long broom, bristle end up and brush out between window ledge and unit, any dirt that may have collected there. This will unclog the hole(s). You should also try to drain any water collected, out of unit. Turn A/C back on, it may do the same thing for about 15 minutes, but the problem should go away. Remember, you may not be actually able to see the hole or ****, but IT IS THERE. Make sure you brush it as thoroughly as you can. It worked for me. Thanks FixYa!!!
Your noise is probably your fan hitting water. First try to tilt the ac to slant to the outside. If this is done water should drain to the outside if not your drain hole is blocked from the front to the back you can see this if you remove the unit and look at the front coil housing you will see a very small weep hole clean it out and use a water hose to clean the front coil and the back coil. good luck
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.
It needs to be installed sloping slightly outside. It is not meant to be level. Use boards or whatever to do this. If this doesn't solve the problem the drain channel is plugged. Take off the outer case and look at the bottom there should be some kind of channel from in front to the back. Use a turkey baster or something to flush it. The back may be fairly deep to hold some water. Don't drill a hole. Some units keep some water in the back so the outside fan can throw it through the condensor to help cool it.
