You could have a stoppped up drain passage from the evap coil to the outside of the unit. OR it could be leaning too far inward not allowing the condesate to drain out. Check to make sure the unit is level, and if it is, then pull it out and clean it out. you can use a water hose, but be careful not to get the electronics wet. The passage is usually plastic or styrafoam an at the backside of the evap(inside)coil.

    Mine was doing the same thing. And I couldn't see any drain hole until I reall looked good under the bottom of the window unit. Then I found it. Unclogged it. NO MORE WATER!

I have a continental elec port. air. Not sure of model. Cools great but when compressor kicks on unit make a loud whistling noise. Cleaned filter no help.

although annoying, at this time i would not mess with it, the fan motor needs oiling (zoom spout oiler ) works the best .. you can find how in my other postings.. try running the unit on a lower fan speed... some cool is better than NONE

Our unit is making loud clicking noise and spraying water when in the cooling air condition mode, but not when the fan is on. What could be the problem, and is it fixable?

you may hear water splashing that is because it is coming off of the condenser the part that is outside the water runs off the condenser and is forced out by the fan for as the noise could be something in or on the inside fan blade or outside fan blade as long as the water is not coming inside your house and you have enough slope on the unit you should be ok

Well first the pipes started making alot of noise like a clicking and knocking. Then theres a valve kind of thing started leaking water and it won't stop leaking. What can I do to repair it? Thanks for...

are you talking about a box air con in your window/wall ? . water dripping out of the unit is condensation from the water in the air. the water should go to a drain or outside. pipes making nose are from the compressor which is kinda normal unless its a really loud noise. use a rubber and cable ties to stop pipes from hitting metal on metal

Same loud crack noise also a high pitched beep every minute or so

The noise may come from a plastic piece that is around the outside fan ( that picks up the water ) and cools the condenser ( coil ). the fogs maybe condensation ( warm air and cool air mixing on the window ( heat from outside on the window and cool air inside ( poor seal around the widow ( Unit) .

Water cooling noise

Could be air in the system which you would need to bleed out. Either that or a faulty pump.
