The water leaks all over the floor instead of running into the water containner. if that is right then your condenser drain pan tubing is blocked or the pan is rusted out that cause the water leaks all over instead of running down the tubing into the water containner . You've to dismantle the panels to get into this condenser drain pan to have a good clean out . Hope this will help . God Bless.

SOURCE: sharp air conditioner portable leak in bottom

You mean it's leaking around the AC's unit base? If so, here's a handy diagnostic article that specifically addresses this problem of yours, explaining the probable causes and solutions, a solution that may very well have to do with the condensation pump's malfunction or just debris blockage, among other things: http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Home_Improvement_Zone_Cooling_Ventilation_Systems_Central_Air_Conditioning_Creates_Water_Puddle.htm This article should set you on your way! Good luck! Brad

First, make sure the unit is level. If so, you have a blockage or kink in the drain tube. Careful inspection should reveal any blockage, & you may be able to poke it thru with a piece of coathanger wire. Don't use excessive force, any block should be easily freed.

In each of these cases I would check for proper connection of the return air vent to the A/C from below. Static pressure from insufficient return air could cause negative pressure to hold back on condensate drainage. when the unit is shut off the pressure becomes equal allowing water to drain. Also check air filter and clean if found necessary.

Water leak from Electrolux Kelvinator EPK09CRN2A portable air conditioner


You'll have to open it up and check for a displaced condensate collector. This may look like a funnel with a drain tube that is supposed to go to the tray

How to stop portable air conditioner leaking water


I heard that some portable air conditioners can leak water from the unit after being operated for about an hour or so if they are not on a level floor. <br /> I solved this with my DeLonghi air con after discovering the floor my unit was on had about 1 - 2 mm difference from one side to the other. By buying a small builder's liquid level (like you use to keep a line of bricks aligned) I used a small piece of wood (ruler thickness) under one side of the air con and no more leaks! Hope this helps someone. Kez, Perth WA

Water leaking from beneath unit. Some water enter buckets some leaking onto floor. Can't use the unit it leaks so much.


Look for the drain tube which sends the water to the buckets. It may be disconnected or misaligned allowing the water to go the wrong way. The tube can also be stopped up. Blow through it to clear.

My unit is leaking tons of water only when a/c is on for a while. It leaks out of base and I have to drain tank every day. Help!!!


It is supposed to "leak" water into it's reservoir and it needs to be dumped when it gets full. That water is the humidity that the a/c is pulling form the air inside your home. As long as it's going into the reservoir and not leaking onto your floor then it is working properly.
