Sometimes the pan that catches the water rusts through and leaks no matter what you do with the drain. If the leak spot is accessible you can fix it when its clean and dry with some JB weld or some other epoxy;' many times though its totally unreachable, and needs to be replaced. In that instance call a reputable HVAC to repair. Sometimes leaks come from the unit being out of level. I'm assuming this a split system unit. This sometimes can be re-leveled by way of some wooden shims or adjusting the support. Also you can slightly shim the unit to where the condensation runs forward to the drain, avoiding the leak in the back. Good luck

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.

My window air conditioner is leaking water in my kitchen

yhawk - Part of the problem may be that the back of the unit (outside) is not tiled down 1/4". That allows the collected condensation to drain thru the weep/drain hole outside. Or the drain hole is clogged. Troubleshooting both of the issues may solve the problem. Also, make sure that the air intake filter is clean. Do Not remove the filer while the unit is ON.

Hope this helps you. Please let me know.

There is a leak of water in front of the Air Conditioning unit

Clean floor of unit under coils so front coil water can drain under the coils to the back drain.
Don't forget to tilt them unit a bit to the back to allow the water to drain towards the back.

If this was helpful please rate me.

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.

The high-wall fan coil unit leaked water. How do I correct this?

mcdevito75 here The portion of the A/C unit that goes outside is the evaporator and is suppose to leak water, the drain hole is clogged at the bottom of the A/C unit where this evaporator is. If you have water on the front part of the A/C unit inside the house, Clean the filter, make sure the unit isn"t set too low on cool, also the exhaust toward outside.

Air Handler leaking

First make sure unit is level. Drain pan may be dirty. On the rheem or Ruud unit the back of the pan gets stopped up. Ithas small holes that let the water by and they get stopped up. Now even though your drain is clean you may have a stopped up dain pan. Check this > These are problems you can take care of your self. Open up the top panel of your unit and you can look down on the drain pan. Check for dirt and stoppage near the outlet of the drain pan. You amy also have a cracked drain pan but I doubt it. Rus

Leaking/ room temp. air.

I am assuming that this is a window airconditioner. If so make sure that the unit is installed at a slight tilt. You "do not" want it level. Make sure that the unit leans toward the drain. The drain must be at the lowest point. Also make sure that the drain, the drain tube and the condensate collection tray are clean. A slight or moderate buildup of dust, dirt, mold or rust will detour the condensate drainage out the nearest point of least resistance. Always keep the filters, the evaporator coil and the condenser coil as clean as possible. I hope this info helps you.
Good luck.....

Mitsubishi Air Conditioner FDKN Series leaks water after 30 mins

It could be one of two things -

1) The unit is not hanging level (assuming this is a wall mount, through the wall, or window unit), or
2) The condensate drain or trough to the drain is plugged/clogged/filled with trash.
