The port out the back has to be pushed down so it angles down. If its level it will drain into the tank

When i run the ac it leaks on the floor from the inside n i dont know what to do about this problem.

All portable or window ac units are mounted or standing with the back lower housing at a slope

so that the condensed water buildup from the evaporator can drain into a tray or thru a tube out

the back of the unit, depending on what kind of unit you have you may have to take it apart and

make sure the drain for the condensed water is not blocked. some times these units are not

installed correctly, they will not drain properly and standing water with time will turn to rust and

clog up the tube where it needs to flow from the ac unit. good luck!

My LG Split AC leaks, the water drips from the front right side (inside the room, where it is installed) instead of from the drainage pipe (outside the room). What to do?

Hello, make sure the unit is tilted back somewhat so the Condensate can drain toward the back and not collect up in the front. Also, make sure the drain tube is not obstructed or blocked with sludge.

Why do i keep getting a puddle of water in the bottom of my frige? The water must be coming from the top because each day, there is water on top of the food containers all the way down to the bottom.

Sounds like you have a defrost drain issue. Often times these get clogged, and the back flow water drips into the fridge, usually the culprit on a GE is a clogged drain diverter, located on the outside back of the unit. Remove the tube by bending and pulling away from the diverter while holding the diverter firmly in place. Then turn the diverter one quater turn clockwise and it should pull down and away from the appliance. Clean this diverter out thoroughly, as it is likely full of gunk. However, on some older model GE top mounts, ive seen the drain pan underneath the evaporator coil inside the freezer with a small rust hole, and the water drips through this hole instead of the intended drain hole, the water then misses the tubing, and drips into the fridge. this drain pan will then have to be replaced.

My air conditioners drips from the front of the unit instead of the drain in back. What should I do?

To ensure water drip out of the drain tube at the rear, you must ensure the following three items:

1) The bottom of the unit is at least slightly lower at the rear (outside) than the front.

2) Ensure the drain tube at the rear is clear.

3) Ensure the drain channels that run from the front of the unit to the rear are not blocked by debris.

#1 and #2 are the problem 95% of the time.

#3 generally requires removing the unit and taking the upper enclosure off the unit.

I suspect you will find a blocked drain tube at the rear. Good luck!

Water full light keeps coming on and shutting unit down. There is absolutely no water in it.

Check your float switch. It might be stuck in the up position.

How to do an oil change

Look at the bottom of the oil tank from the right hand side of the bike. You'll see a large hose that runs towards the back of the bike instead of forward towards the front of the bike. Follow this hose or tube down along the frame, behind the transmission and you'll see a plug in the pipe. Remove this plug and the oil will drain out of the tank. Harley used to have a large diameter rubber hose but I've heard they changed that. If you follow the bottom frame tubes back to where they turn upwards behind the transmission, you should see the drain hose.

Good Luck

Water leaking from base of unit during operation

dehumidification is something that AC units do as a by-product of cooling so yes, it is acting as a dehumidifier. there is a coil (copper tubing snaking back and forth through metal fins like on a radiator) that water condenses on and drips off of. That water will fall in to a pan and then will either evaporate or run through a drain. Make sure the path from the coil to the drain pan is clear. The water will either drip down (pan sloped to a corner or hole) or run through a tube to the drain pan. The drain pan is the part that had the drain plug in it. If that pan was dry the condensate is reaching the pan. If it is full that means either the drain is plugged up or the unit is pulling humidity out of the air faster than it can evaporate. Check to make sure any drain tube is clear and that the path for the condensate (water) is sloped the right way - not shaken loose or tipped to the wrong side.
That should get you started. Let me know if I can be of any other help.

Good Luck!

Refrigerator has water dripping inside the unit down the back

The problem is the drain is clogged. Remove the back panel in your freezer and at the bottom of the evaporator coil you will see a hole about ½” in diameter this is the drain tube. You might need to use some warm water to melt the ice and then run a wire being very careful not to puncture the hose and run it down the tube to free up the drain. This tube travel down to the bottom of your refrigerator to a pan sometimes located on top of the compressor or somewhere else down there. It collects the water there to evaporate. You can enter your model # at for a diagram or illustration of your refrigerator. Not all models are available.

Ice at bottom of freezer and fridge is over cooling

Check you drain system. If you are mechanical unplug the unit and remove the back cover at the bottom. Locate the drain tube running down to the drain pan. If it is frozen, use a hair dryer to thaw it. If it is clogged with debris, vlean it out. Locate the drain pan under the evaporator coil and pour hot water down the drain until it is clear. Sometimes the defrost element is positioned to far away from the drain pan so carefully reposition it closer to the pan.
