Hi,

Before we proceed, i would like to inform you that whenever Humidity is high, there portable air conditioners would leak water from the back. It's not a fault, However the design that they are made of.It's always advisable to keep them at the edge of the room.

Now,

Excluding the above one, other factors are :-

1. If the unit is not balanced. If the placement of the unit is not correct, it would leak the water.

2. Check the drain pipe. Any leak in the internal drain system would lead to leakage.I would use a can of air to blow out the leakage.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

If the conditioner is leaking water from condensation check the drain hose, usually it is located on a panel at the bottom, refer to the manual.

HOw to fix portable air conditioner? It is leaking


Unless it is leaking the refrigerant then what is dripping is the condensation air conditioners produce. This being a portable, it should have a drip pan that can be removed and drained. Window units just drip out the back and large units have a hose routed to drip away from the unit or into a drain.

How to stop portable air conditioner leaking water


I heard that some portable air conditioners can leak water from the unit after being operated for about an hour or so if they are not on a level floor. <br /> I solved this with my DeLonghi air con after discovering the floor my unit was on had about 1 - 2 mm difference from one side to the other. By buying a small builder's liquid level (like you use to keep a line of bricks aligned) I used a small piece of wood (ruler thickness) under one side of the air con and no more leaks! Hope this helps someone. Kez, Perth WA

Comes on and runs then cycles off, and may not come back on. fans run every thing seems to work compressor dose not come back on.


if a portable air conditioner, is the water tank full of water ? if so empty it.
Other option for any a/c unit (not just portable unit) is that it has a gas leak.

Amcor ALD12000E portable air conditioner shuts down every hour


Is it leaking or shutting off on the overfill?
If it is leaking you have a stopped up drain inside the unit.

Top tray not draining


I called the service tech, before Maytag stopped supporting this unit. (built by Fedders with Maytag name). Fedders has gone out of business (7-09). The tech guy said that the tray gets clogged up with crud and the solution is to try to flush the tray out with water and compressed air. I had the problem of water leaking from the trays but not properly draining through the drain hose. This solution did the trick.

Water leaking from portable air conditioner


Sounds like the drain line is blocked you would have to take this unit apart in order to check this. I would use a can of air to blow out the leakage. Also make sure the unit is level

Water leaking from portable air conditioner


First, make sure the unit is level. If so, you have a blockage or kink in the drain tube. Careful inspection should reveal any blockage, & you may be able to poke it thru with a piece of coathanger wire. Don't use excessive force, any block should be easily freed.
