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!

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.

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.

I have the hose hooked up to the back but it keeps filling the tank and shuts off when it's full ,how do you just use the hose to drain


I believe you have to put a plug to drain that drains into the tank ,then it can only drain out the hose.

Drain hose in floor drain but fills up water bucket


wow, that's a weird one there. just to check, you did turn thr drain connection all the way down and remove the cap? nothing inside the drain connector? the hose is not too small or run too far? is the water coming out of the hose and in to the bucket at the same time if it is I would think ther is an internal leak somewhere and take it back for an exchange if new. good luck let me know if this wasn't any help for ya

I have a portable air conditioner and the water condensation tank fills in about 4 hours of constant use. Is there any kind of portable water tank that I could attach to my unit that would allow me to...


I would suggest putting a condensate pump in the reservoir, find the tube that empties the water into the reservoir and direct that into the pump. You can run tubing from the pump to a sink or any other drain in the house that is convenient. Putting the pump inside the reservoir is a safe guard in case the pump fails, the water will fill and turn the unit off instead of flooding the floor. It would actually probably trip your breaker once the water hit the voltage on the pump but always better safe then sorry. Check out these pumps at amazon, you don't need anything fancy.

Water going into carpet instead of ac water bucket


I have this air conditioner. What I did was get a long plastic tube from home depot and connect it to the middle back drain. I then put the plastic tube outside my window, or if u have a drain somewhere put it in there or put the end into a big bucket. Let gravity do its job. I did not connect the tube to the internal bucket b/c I would have to empty it too often. The air conditioner is on top of a table so that water will flow down the tube and out the window.

Narrow tube v. plug and cap?


If the unit stops working and some kind of a 'water level full' indicator appears then un bend it and un plug it and then let the water drain into a bucket.  If it continues to indicate that the internal water tank if full you may want to run a hose to a drain in the floor or into a bucket to let the water drain away and the unit keep running without stopping.

APE08AK GE Portable Room Air Conditioner isn't draining


I had the same problem and unscrewed and removed the back cover (AFTER I UNPLUGED THE UNIT) and noticed there is a small black tube that the drain tube connects to. Mine was broken off track and I had to physically remove the small black tube, put it back in it's place and super glued new tabs along the side so it would tilk back and drain the water in the bucket vs. the floor via the unit.
Hope this helps.
