Frigidaire FAC107S1A leaking water thru the inside of the house

Hello, first make sure the unit is tilted back in the window about a 1/4 inch. Also, check the drain on unit, sometimes they can clog and prevent condensate from draining.

Water is draining into the house?.where is the drain?

Hello, the unit must be tilted back in the window to prevent the condensate from leaking inside. Some units will have a drain plug on the bottum, while others use the condenser fan to scoop up the condensate and splash the condenser to keep it cooler and evaporate the condensate.

My frigidare frc150ff is leaking. what is the matter with it

The leak may be from the condensation of water. Check the panel at the back of the unit inside it. See if there is ice buildup inside. Remove all ice including the panel. It would be best to clean the unit while doing so. The leak may be from drain being clogged from debris or drain frozen which prevents water to follow the correct path.

Leaks water very bad states water tank empty

You boiler is leaking, sorry. This is usually caused from not descaling enough or doing it improperly. Everybody thinks their water is good and sets the water hardness very low. This is a problem. All water except distilled has minerals and these minerals end up in our boiler. After a while these minerals end up between the halves of the boiler and that keeps the seals from doing their job (preventing water from leaking) and you get water leakage. When you pressurize the brew unit the first bit of water will fill the boiler and then the brew unit but part of it will leak. It will only get worse if you don't replace the boiler. You show a new model, but if yours doesn't look like the picture, its the older model and that is the one I am talking about. If you have a new model you have a different boiler. Those just plug up with scale and you throw them away Doing a descale is very important like changing your oil. Do it more often and you machine will last a long time. Set your water hardness to 4 in your menu. Always push the enter button after you make a change to lock it, or it will be the same as you had it.

I have a window unit and water is leaking all on the inside of the room from under the unit?

your drain hole on the ouside of your unit is plugged up, I always drill a couple extra 1/4" holes on the outside on the bottom to prevent that from happening, take caution when and if you drill your own extra drain holes not to go to deep and damage internal parts.

Ice maker making little ice/Leaking water on floor.

The ice trays bust be cleaned to prevent calcium build up. This will prevent the ice from froming in trays.
The overflow could be caused by the freezer not being level, or by the water fill timer not shutting of the incoming water. This will keep the water temp. too high to freeze the water. Also check the fill valve for sepage.

Electrical fault

Under the carpet of the footwell is an ECU (electronic control unit). Its a convenience control unit and it manages all the electrical things you described, and more. The water has obviously caused a fault with the unit. You will probably need a new ECU which will need to be coded, ideally at a dealer. They are not cheap so be sure to fix the leak at the same time to prevent a repeat. I have heard of rain water collecting at the bottom of the doors and then spilling over the seals. Also on avants rear washer pipes can pop apart in this area.
