The bottom of the case from the outside usually has a "divot" in it below the coil to allow flow from the hose that runs across the bottom of the unit, try pressuring up and "blowing out" any obstruction, if this does not work then you may have to disassemble the unit and verify the drainpan is not cracked below the indoor coil (rare)

My goldstar 6000 btu window ac is dripping into the house

Sounds like you're using it when the outside temp is cooler than the inside temp. when this happens, frost will build up on the condensor. Turn the unit off until the ice melts off with a shim under the unit tilting it back towards the outside of the window to drain. If it continues to drip after melting all the ice off and letting it dry out, you have a small leak in the condensor, (unit must be old or worn out) that the freon pressure has leaked out causing it to condensate more. A good checklist would be to check the level of the unit, make sure the coils are clean and not bent, the age of the unit and for small areas of corrosion or white marks on the condensor before replacing it.

My Haier window ac unit is dripping a lot of water into my room. It only starts to do it after it has been on for 20-30 minutes, but comes out in a steady stream from the bottom of the unit for the rest...

The window unit is most likely not tilted towards the outside so that the condensate (water) can flow to the drains on the outside part of the unit. Try leveling the A/C or even tilting (Slightly) towards the outside. This will cure your problem.

If this does not cure the problem then you will have to remove the a/c from the window/wall and remove the cover. Inside you will see the drip pan in the bottom and will have to clean the water channels the run from the pan to the outside part of the unit, they will be clogged with dirt or debris and not letting the water flow properly.

Hope this helps.

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.

I have a sharp cv-10 MH and it is leaking at the bottom towards the front any ideas on how i could fix this or what it could be?

Window units do produce water in operation but it normally drips to the outside on the ground. If your unit is tilted too much toward the front making it un level the water can drip to the inside. Change the tilt to the outside.

Carpet wet under window air con.

The air conditioner needs to be "tilted" or "pitched" to the rear. By this I mean the back (outside) should be slightly lower than the front (inside). This will allow the water to run toward the back of the unit, and drip on the ground instead of inside the house - on the floor. The A/C unit must not be level or tilted into the room (front even with or lower than the rear).

This water is the result of condensation that is created when the warm room air is drawn through the much cooler coil & fins inside the unit and is completely normal. The more humid the air inside is, the more condensation will form, and drain away.

Good luck!

Condensation water is not draining properly on Goldstar AC window unit and backing up and dripping on the wood frame and floor below the unit. Is something blocked it just started happening. I am going...

Yes,remove the ac unit from the window,and clean it out with a water hose out side,remove all debris from inside the unit,and tilt water out of unit.Make sure there is nothing in the way of the drain,and when the unit is put back in the window,make sure it has a very good tilt outward so the water will for sure flow outside,not in.If this was helpful,please rate,thank you.

Does this need water?

window unit air conditioners do not need water, in fact the produce condensation that will drip outside the unit, that is why most manufactures say to install your window unit with a little bit of tilt toward the outside portion.

A/C leaking water on floor

Hey there, window units are made to drip their water outside. All youo need to do is make sure it is tilted ever so slightly toward the outside and not inside. Let me know if this doesn't work for ya.

Where to put water

Has someone told you A/C units need water? This I've never heard of. The water you see dripping from an A/C unit is the condensate dripping off the evaporator -- it's removing water from the air when it cools it.
