I have a similar situation with 66 a/c units in my motel. The problem is the drain valve in the back of the unit (near the compressor) does not function properly. It is supposed to open when the water temp (laying in the bottom of the unit) gets to 50 degrees cusing the drain valve to open and let the water out. The problem is the water never reaches 50 degrees when the outside temperature is in the 80's. So the water sets in the units. The fan sprays the water over the fan motor, heating element and inside the chasis causing it to rust from the inside out. I have notified LG and they are investigating it...... Amana has the same problems with their units which use the same drain valve and they have removed the drain valve in several motels in the area.
I would suggest removing the drain valve or wedging something under the little round plate so the the unit drains. Also make sure your A/C is tilted properly so the water runs to the back of the unit and drains.

Testimonial: "My a/c is still under warranty so LG drilled a small hole in corner of the drain pan on the side where the water was spraying out. Works great now!"
Find the nameplate ratings if they are still readable for this unit to see what they recommend.
Ideally a seperate circuit for this unit.
#14 minimum wire for 15amp
#12 minimum wire for 20 amp
