Hi,
It is normal for window air conditioners to have a puddle inside them during operation, actually they are designed so the evaporator fan wicks up the excess water onto the hot evaporator coils, keeping the unit cool, if it bothers you some, you can possibly adjust the outside brackets so it slants downward some or if your mechanically inclined , drill a small hole so that the water can drip outside, use caution though if drilling, be extremy careful what your doing- and make sure your not going to hit anything on the inside, you can see through the side maybe, hope that helps

Water leaking inside the house


The air conditioner should be mounted in such a way that there is a slight tilt outside to direct condensate away from the inside. Your air conditioner may be level or slightly tilted toward the inside. The installation instructions should have made this point clear

I have a sharp window AC unit, model af-609x. does it have a drain hole? there is no water coming out of it, but when we take it out of the window we get soaked from water somewhere inside the unitl


All window air conditioners will remove moisture from the air if there is any. Most window air conditioners collect this moisture in the bottom pan of the air conditioner and attempt to evaporate the moisture. The evaporation process works as follows: First, the water drips down off of the cold evaporator coils on the front of the unit. Then the water collects in the bottom of the air conditioner base, the "pan." If the air conditioner is installed properly it will be tilted slightly back.

The water then collects near the back of the unit. On some units, the fan blade used to cool the rear condensing coils will have a rim on the outside of the fins of the blade. This rim, or "slinger," will come close to touching the inside of the air conditioner pan when the fan is spinning. As the water collects in the pan and reaches the depth necessary for the fan ring to touch it, the ring will lift some of the water up and the fan will blow it at the condensing coils. Because the coils are warm, they will evaporate the moisture to the outside.

While this is happening it is normal to hear water splashing and sloshing around. As long as there is no water leaking inside the room that is being cooled there is no cause for concern.

Never drill into the bottom of and air conditioning unit to "let the water out."

Our air conditioner starts dripping water inside the unit inside the house.


water dripping is to be expected, dont worry about it. But it sounds like its not tipped to the outside enough. Also check inside under the cover, if leaves and debris get stuck in there it will change the direction of the water flow.

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!

I have a GE Btu 5000 and you can hear water inside of it. How do i fix it?


You're supposed to hear water inside it. That shows that it is removing the humidity from the air. If it is leaking into the room, tile the outermost end down about 1/2" lower than the inside end.

Air conditioner tary is full of water & won't cool, emptied once & it started to cool, but tray filled up again & it stopped cooling, what to do?? ??


Hello,

I'm assuming the air conditioner is a window intallation. Some Air conditioners need water in the botton in order to maintain the condensator coil cool, other have a hole to drain the water. Check inside your equipment, I mean inside, open it and remember all the steps for reassemble. It is more likely inside is stuffed with dust. If its the case, use patiente, toothbrush and hose and carefull not use too much water pressure and mantain electronics and motor DRY!!!

Sunbeam air conditioner


It is normal for water to collect in the lower base of an air conditioner. See the section entitled: "There is water sloshing around inside." If water leaks out the front it is usually because the unit is tilted forward in the window frame. All air conditioners should be installed so they tilt slightly back to allow for proper removal of the condensation collected.

Most window air conditioners collect this moisture in the bottom pan of the air conditioner and attempt to evaporate the moisture.

The water isn't go out


Dear miguel_5

Check the position of the ac if it is tilted too much on the inside then that could be one reason for water not flowing out other reason could be due to dust particles blocking inside.
