Question about Goldstar WG5000 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

We have an apartment complex that has window units. The condensation water is dripping outside like it is supposed too. The problem is that the water is becoming a slip hazard. Is there any thing you can do to divert where the water drips?

How Do I get my air conditioner to stop dripping?


It's condensation. With central air, there is pipes that either discharge or recirculate it. Window a/c's do not have that. Try to position it so it drips outside.

If the old unit was dripping condensate into the house, it was installed incorrectly. The replacement unit may have been installed correctly so the condensate drains outside.

My window unit air conditioner unit is dripping profusely out of the bottom of the unit inside of my apartment. the drip pan is overflowing.


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.

Water leaking out of hose on a fujitysu split system ast24rga


Normally, an Air Conditioner removes water from the air and that water condenses on the coils of the inside section that does the cooling. The water condenses on the cooling coils just like moisture condenses on the outside of a glass of ice water.
This excess water drains out of the cooling section through a "drip tube" and is supposed to drain outside of the house, or a drainage system. Your "drip tube" has either not been installed (if it is a brand new installation), has separated and water is now dripping into the house instead of outside of it. Or it is clogged. This happens when algae builds up inside the "drip pan". If that is the case, you can purchase "algaecide" tablets which kill the algae that is clogging the drip pan and preventing water from draining out through the drip tube. These tablets can be found in many hardware stores, refrigeration supply companies, or even Walmart. You can put a tablet inside the pan. (You will have to remove the cover of the unit). You can often use a little bit of Bleach and that will act as an algaecide. Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

newer AC's do drip more condensate than old ones due to increased efficiency
this will help with the complaints;;; ducttape a small funnel to the outside location of the AC (usually at the tray end) where the unit drips; (you may have to cut the funnel a bit to fit) attach a small hose to the bottom of the funnel and, place the other end of the hose into a bottle inside the window on the apartment's floor; empty the bottle regularly.

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.

Watter dripping inside my apartment (the a/c unit has already been profesionally tilted outside) Thank you!


It sounds like you may have a condensation drain problem. Shut the unit off to stop the water problem and call a qualified technician to clear the condensation drain and test for other problems.

Whirlpool Air Con Drainage issue


Yes, there should be a place for the condensate to drain outside. It's apparently clogged and the drip pan is overfilling. Look for a tube or an opening outside where the condensate should be exiting. This needs to be unclogged.

Hi, If this is a new unit I would check the filter first and make sure it is clean. Also check and make sure it is slightly tilted to the outside. If its an older unit it probably needs cleaned. Window units naturally create water in the evaporator area. The water is suppose to drain to the back of the unit to the condensing area where the slinger ring on the condenser fan blade slings it into the condenser coil making it more efficient. There is usually a drain hole to drain excess water from the back of the unit. Any dirt in the pathway of this water or the wrong tilt will cause water to build up and drip or blow out the front. Anything touching the evaporator coil allowing water to run down the obstacle into the wrong area will cause the same thing. reduced air flow will cause the evap to freeze which could also cause a water problem.
