Drain plug on a 2002saab a\c unit.


All A/C units drain water and need a clear path to drain water. If window unit the unit MUST lean to the outside so the condensation water can drain that direction and insure the drain hole is clear of debree. If an indoor central a/c unit the drain must be clogged the unit is leaning away from drain or the pipe going to the drain is clogged somewhere as it exits house. Cant drain if doesn't have a clear path to do it's job. Doubt it's a problem with the brand.

Were do i get the manuel for model number ph3 12r03 is the model number were or how do I drain the water and can you send me a manual


Here is the link to the manual:

http://s3.amazonaws.com/szmanuals/b0348062b23e23cd40550b61e1dc5f43


Here are those particular instructions:


Compressor Indicator


The " " icon will light up on the control panel display when the compressor turns on. The " " icon will turn off when the compressor shuts off.

Emergency Condensate Holding Tank


When the room temperature is low and the indoor humidity is high, the air conditioner may not be able to evaporate some of the moisture fast enough. When this happens, the water will accumulate in an emergency condensate tank inside the unit. Once the emergency condensate tank is full, the unit will automatically shut off and the " " will appear on the control panel display. To empty the condensate tank, unscrew the screw plug at the bottom back of the unit. You will need a small pan, approximately 1" high to catch the water coming out of the condensate tank. Once the condensate tank is drained, the unit will begin working within a few minutes. The emergency condensate tank holds approximate
ly 1.5 Liters of water.

Another option is to purchase a small hose from a hardware store that can fit around the 5/8" drain plug on the back of the unit and drain the unit into a gravity drain or larger pan for continuous drainage.

To resume operation quickly, empty the water container according to the following steps:

1. Turn the unit off. Do not move the unit when the water container is full.

2. Place the drain pan accessory under the drainage port at the back of the unit.

3. Remove the screw plug from the drain hole. The condensate water will drain out automatically. When the drain pan is full, screw the screw plug back onto the drainage hole to stop the water flow. Empty the drain pan. Repeat until all the water is emptied.

Once the water container has been emptied, screw the plug back onto the drain hole. Do not allow the
water to drip continuously into the drain pan, as it might easily overflow.

How do you drain water from a LP1010snr air conditioner?


P2 means the water collection tank is full and needs to be drained. You have to pull the drain plug at the bottom of the unit and drain the water.
Drain the water (small amount actually) in the shower. Note: There is a cap towards the bottom of the unit that you will need to unscrew, then pull out the rubber plug. Fired up the unit after the water drain ... it worked fine.

Why is there no drain hole for condesation to drip out?


Some of the Friedrich units will drip out in the back of the unit. There may be just a small bend in the base of the unit allowing a certain amount of draining just behind the rear coil. Most units require some water to remain in the back of the unit to help cool the unit off. This is why tilting in the window is important. Be sure not to tilt it too much or too much water will drain, causing the unit to overheat. Be sure to tilt it enough to where the water can drain properly or the water may drain in the house, down the wall.

I have Whirlpool window unit ACM082PR2. Water is draining into the house. The unit is level. I don't what to do to get to stop draining in the house. Bruce Hansen


Hello, you want the unit tilted back in the window somewhat, the unit should not be level because this will cause the wateR to settle in the front of the unit and drip. Also, if the unit has a drain plug remove it so the water can drain out of the unit.

After one year of usage my portable A/C drains on the floor approximately 3pint / hr. Unit was raised so that the water can drain into a container without weting the carpet . This situation needs to be...


This is what the manual says:

When the internal water container is full, the back light on the LCD display flashes. The unit will shut off automatically, beep 15 times, and must be drained before it will restart.

To Drain the Unit: switch off the unit and remove the plug from the wall socket.

• DO NOT MOVE THE UNIT. Doing this can result in water

leakage, damaging your floor or carpet.

• Place the drain pan on the floor under the drain cap.

• Remove the drain cap and the rubber stopper from the

drain, and let the water run out. Partially fill the drain pan,

replace the rubber stopper, and empty the drain pan.

This procedure must be repeated until the unit is empty.

• Replace the rubber stopper and drain cap.

Put plug into the wall socket, and switch the unit on.

The warning signal should be off.

For Continuous Drainage: • Switch off the unit and remove the plug from the electrical outlet.

• Remove the Drain Cap and Rubber Stopper. Drain if necessary.

• Connect a Drain Tube (not included) (20mm / 3/4" inner dimension) on to the water outlet.

• Place the other end in a drain. Make sure the tube is free from twists and bends.

The tube must decline over its entire length.

New LG 8000 btu a/c units are rusting


I have a similar situation with 66 a/c units in my motel. The problem is the drain valve in the back of the unit (near the compressor) does not function properly. It is supposed to open when the water temp (laying in the bottom of the unit) gets to 50 degrees cusing the drain valve to open and let the water out. The problem is the water never reaches 50 degrees when the outside temperature is in the 80's. So the water sets in the units. The fan sprays the water over the fan motor, heating element and inside the chasis causing it to rust from the inside out. I have notified LG and they are investigating it...... Amana has the same problems with their units which use the same drain valve and they have removed the drain valve in several motels in the area.
I would suggest removing the drain valve or wedging something under the little round plate so the the unit drains. Also make sure your A/C is tilted properly so the water runs to the back of the unit and drains.
