On a window unit you need to have it so the front of the unit(inside) is about 1/2 inch higher than the rear(outside) so the condensation from its operation drains outside,set it in the window and put a pencil or marble and see which way it rolls or use a level,dont get too much angle because some units use the moisture to cool the compressor with the "slinger" on the condenser fan,that should fixya up

Water seesm to leak from behind fan housing when it rain and after air conditoner is turned off

water dripping from a.c after being used is normal on any vehicle, its just condensation frome warm air and cold ac lines, as for rain its probably just rain water coming through the front end, however if the water is reddish or green in color it would indicate a coolant leak and would be noticable much more often.

The unit ices up after an hour or so and then water runs down the wall and not into the drip tray

Two issues are possible.
First of all check for dirt accumulation that is blocking the water to drip but is diverting to the front panel section to flow into the wall.
Secondly the A/C must be mounted with a slight tilt thereby making the water condensation to flow/drop into the tray. If not you can remove and make a small wedge on the mounting to tilt.
Also use a good air jet or a water jet( if taken out) to clean the coils.

What if the air conditioner is not dripping the water out the back

It could not be charged properly - is it cooling?

Some units sling the condensate up on the condensor coil and it evaporates.

Or, You have a low humidity conditon.

Water dispenser drips how can I fix it?

There are two possibilities. The water control valve is leaking while off or the water has air bubbles in the supply line. If you just recently changed the water filter and the air has not been completely purged this will cause a drip until the air is out. You can also remove the water line at the control valve and see if it continues to flow. Just us care by unplugging refrigerator first. Be right back with part numbers, Sea Breeze

Dripping air conditoner

The "drip pan" is actually the entire base srround of the unit. There are two critical things you must confirm 1) is the unit angled back to the outside(you need water to flow away from the inside) and 2) there may be a plug/obstruction in the outer casing where the water is intended to drain from. You should check to see if either or both of these conditions exsist.

Leak from bottom of window unit

The unit needs to be tilted outware. The outside (back) of the unit must be at least 1/4" per foot lower than the front. If you have 2' sticking out, the back must be at least 1/2" lower than where it sits on the window sill.

Water dispenser drips after filling glass.

sounmds like you have air trapped in tothe line( formiong pressure behind the line whe nnot in use forcing water drops out, remove the crisper in the refrig campartmant and look for the holding tank either there an air bubble trapped in ther or you havea small leak allowing air inot the system, usually happen right after replacing the filter, instraed of trying to rnn 5 secs on 5 secs off, try with a bigger contaienr to allow constantly running for longer periods of time to hopefully force out the air bubble

Air conditioner is leaking but lights not blinking

Make sure the drainage port is closed as per the instructions. If you continue to have leakage you may have a leak in the tank.

Water pools next to air conditioner

Air conditioners and high-efficiency combustion furnaces create significant condensation, which exits through a plastic drain tube. This should go into a floor drain or be carried away by a small "condensate pump." If water is pooling at the base of the appliance, something may be blocking the water's flow or leaking, or the pump may not be working. 1) Look to see if one of the tubes is leaking. If it is, replace it. 2) Test the condensate pump by pouring water into its pan. If the pump doesn't start, either it isn't receiving power, or it is broken. Be sure that it's plugged in and test the circuit. If it's broken, either get it repaired or replace it. 3) If the pump runs but doesn't empty the pan, the ball-like check valve just before the discharge tube is probably stuck. Unscrew the check valve and loosen the ball inside it. Look for an obstruction. If it appears that a condensation drain tube is clogged with algae, remove it if possible (you may have to cut it and replace it later with a coupling). Run a wire through it to clear it. To kill algae, pour a dilute solution of bleach (1 part bleach to 16 parts water) through the pipe. 4) With an air conditioner, ice may be blocking the tube. If this is the case, be sure the filter isn't dirty. If the filter appears to be fine, the air conditioner's refrigerant supply is probably low. This is when it's time to call an air conditioning technician.
