Question about Kenmore Heating & Cooling
Newer models of window AC's use either a flailing fan to spin the condensate out the sides of the AC (outside the window) or the heat of unit and outside air will evaporate the condensate.
Either way, any excess will spill over the back edge, hence the reason that manufacturer's recommend that the AC be installed with the rear of the unit slightly tilted down to prevent excessive condensate (water) from building up and/or coming inside the front of the unit.
As to the icing, it could be that the unit is undersized for the space you are trying to cool and can't keep up and is running all the time in an attempt to cool the air down in the room you have it installed in. Try letting the unit "defrost" by shutting it off for awhile (until the ice melts) and then keep the shades pulled and the door closed once you restart it. I also tell people to give the AC a chance to adjust by setting the cooling temp to around 10 cooler than the present temperature of the room.
It's really hard to completely cool down a hot room all at once, so unless you're willing to let the unit cool it down in stages, it might not be able to ever get a 90 degree room down to 65 degrees in one day, if ever. Give it a try and see what happens, otherwise, you might need a larger rated BTU unit to get the cooling you desire.
