My portable air comfort free standing air conditioner is leaking water.


Hello Daren,

Welcome to the world of modern conveniences!!

Just guessing here...BECAUSE no Make or MODEL
came through with your question...

but

Just as a COLD DRINK... ACCUMULATES water
(Because chilling warm moist air causes frosting)...

All air conditioners should have a water tray...

I have every confidence tat the unit is NOT leaking...
It is NEEDING to have the drain-pan emptied.

Unless you have a large staff of "domestics"...
That TASK would fall to the owner/operator.

I'M just saying...

Need to fix leaking on my simplicity portable air conditioner 6077 and how the drain works


If it is water in a thru window installation you will need to tilt the unit up a little so the condensate water drips outside. I hope this helps! Thank you and please leave feedback.

Honeywell troubleshooting


First.... are you sure it is "water"??? If it is, the likely source is condensation dumping out of your air conditioner system.... which is normal. Also, you need to remember that the air conditioner operates for other reasons than just cooling the passenger compartment in the heat of the summer. In many vehicles, the air conditioner also runs during the operation of your windshield defroster. Therefore, some water dripping on the floor of your garage is normal. BUT, if it's engine anti-freeze (or some other fluid) we're talking about, that's a whole horse of a different color..

I am empting the tank of water every two days, need help. Thanks


Air conditioners and dehumidifiers are closely related. Any air conditioner operating in a humid environment will extract moisture from the air and with an outside or window unit, this collected condensation has an escape path and these are not equipped with a container to hold the collected water .
A stand-alone portable unit does not have any other way to dispose of the condensate other than the internal container . . .and you.
Your unit is not defective, you just have it operating in a high-humidity area.

My AC unit is builing up water inside it. What could be the problem??


air conditioners condensate ( create water ) in normal operating conditions, so you could assume that nothing is WRONG.
but there should be tubing or drain lines on air conditioning units that run off the excess water, and dirt / lint dust may have the water drain lines clogged , and youd need to clear the lines to allow the water to escape to where it is intended to go

Blows hot air


If your machine is an air conditioner then the little hose needs to drain condensation to the outdoors. Most of the time there is a pump that the hose is attached to inside the unit. If the overflow switch is open the compressor contactor will not operate but the fan will.

HOME AIR CONDITIONER LEAKING WATER


your drain lines are backed up and you either have no safety devices or they are not operating properly.

Shut the system down and clear out all your drain lines. If your system has no float switches installed anywhere, then you need to have this done to prevent any more issues.

Everstar portable ac fills the overflow water bucket in one day. Why?


Air conditioners cause the moisture in the air to condense on the evaporator coil. The water that is created needs to have somewhere to drain. If the unit is in a humid environment, it will create allot of condensation. This kind of operation is not uncommon.

Water Leaking


Dear Customer,
The likely reasons for a leaking AC are...
1) Improperly installed.
A window air conditioner must be slightly lower at the rear than the front. This allows the water being removed from the room to drain to the back of the machine. A difference of one inch is sufficient. This is always the first thing to check. Many are improperly installed in the haste to get relief from the heat. If installed too low at front the water will flow into the room rather than outside. If installed too low at rear, water can roll out front edges before has chance to exit towards rear drain.


  1. Icing up.
    Water being de-humidified can turn to ice if there are problems with the cooling system. There are many reasons for an air conditioner to produce ice. Remove front grille while machine is operating. If ice is present on the cooling coil you will probably need service. For more information see our other article: Why window Air Conditioners Ice up.


  1. Air leakage around air conditioner.
    If warm air is able to enter around the air conditioner it will encounter cooler, dryer air. When they meet condensation will occur. If water leaking from front of air conditioner inspect to see if dripping from body of machine, or water droplets clinging to front area. To test, operate machine for 30 minutes and then use flashlight to check under front edge of base. Small water droplets here indicate an air leakage problem. Add foam insulation to stop warm air from infiltrating.


  1. Drain hole blocked.
    Rear of air conditioner base has a drain hole or groove to allow water to escape. If becomes blocked water can back up. To test, operate machine for 30 minutes and then inspect if draining properly. If appears blocked use a small piece of wood to open drain hole at rear of metal base. CAUTION: Never be tempted to drill holes into the air conditioner body to relieve water pooling. Severe damage can result.


  1. Internal drains blocked.
    There are small passageways that allow water to drain from front of air conditioner to the rear. If they become blocked water will pool at front of machine and overflow onto floor. If this happens the air conditioner will require removal from window and servicing.


  1. Outside temperature too cold.
    This occurs at end of cooling season. If outside temperatures drops below 60 degrees Fahrenheit at night the cooling coil may ice up. If no leakage at bedtime but water in front of machine in morning, suspect this problem. If this problem suspected turn off machine before bedtime and restart as day warms. Alternately, operate machine at night with selector switch in ‘fan only’ position. This will circulate room air during night but not allow cooling.
Hope u find this useful. I'll be thankful if u could rate this. thank you.
