Question about Kenmore 75085 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Window unit is not draining, tray is filling with water

New unit bought 4 months ago, works great. It is very humid here. Leaked water inside about a month ago, so I adjusted tilt so that drain would work better.

Then recently began spittign water, making a lot of gurgling and other noises, so I turned it off. Tried to adjust tilt more (as the tray is full of water, but only little drips come out the back). I shop vaccumed the existing water and muck out as much as I could (hard to get everywhere with a big nozzle. It seemed to help for a short while, but then began making noises again.

Is there a certain area I need to clean to get the water to flow out? There is a lot of muck in the tray from dust and standing water.

Remove the unit from the housing. Using a special cleaner, called coil cleaner which you can purchase at any AC shop clean the coils, this should eleminate the problem.

Yes, we have a fridgidaire FAC127S1A Model and we installed it today and are having trouble with it leaking water once it runs for a while. (The hole on the under side of the A/C.) Is this normal or is it...


If the water is leaking to the outside, that is normal. Especially if, the humidity is high outside.

If it's leaking to the inside. No, that's not normal and is due to improper installation. The rear of the unit should tilt down about 1/4" , to allow the water to drain outside via the drain pan hole.

To help you further, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual for your FAC127S1A model air conditioner. You can download and print it for future reference.

New unit, try using in basement. nothing happen, should humidity settings be high or low? Dose humidity level be high? In the bucket whats the plastic cup about? do something alow water to enter bucket?


If you trying to remove humidity, the setting or percentage of humidity to you want to remove should be set low. it's actually the humidity that will be left in the air. In the Hot Summer months, you want lower humidity, as opposed to the Winter months, when you want higher humidity.

"Plastic cup inside the bucket" - that's got me stumped. But, I suspect, it may be a float valve to turn the unit off, once the bucket reaches the full level. The water enters the bucket through a drain tube or hole from inside the dehumidifier, above the bucket.

By best advice, since this is a new unit, that you recently purchased, is read the Owners Manual/User Guide and become thoroughly familiar with the proper operation of your Dehumidifier, as well as how to properly maintain it. As, they aren't maintenance free.

Every now and then I have water running in the


This is normal. It will go into a defrost mode every so many hours depending on the size of your unit.The water is the defrost draining down the drain tube to underneath your fridge. There is a drain pan underneath that catches the water. On some units you might hear the refrigerant converting from gas to liquid and hear a gurgling sound also.This is also normal.

Water not draining out the back


Humidity is where the water comes from. If humidity is low, very little if any, water.

Water in the Unit


Most of the AC Unit lately are not made to drain. So when you have water collecting inside the unit, the condenser and the evaporator is suppose to help dissolve the water.
When water is collecting inside the appliance like that, it is either because the ac unit is not installed correctly or you live in a high humid area.

Rattling noises and blowing water (goldstar WG5005R)


If the unit is new and tilted enough toward the outside, the rain should not be a factor as far as water blowing out. It will make some rattling noises on the outside more so when its raining or high humidity because the outside fan throws water onto the condenser coil. Sounds like to me that its not draining to the outside.. It shouldn't be dirty enough for the drain paths to be filled with crud. Tilting it more to the outside should fix it. Hope this helps. kstfas

Humidity


An air conditioner of this type always has standing water sitting in the base-tray of the machine as it's running. They're designed to work that way. However, if the unit leans slightly in toward the inside of your house, then the water in the tray can be deeper than it should and/or add extra humidity to the inside air. These units are designed to be installed so that they lean slightly to the _outside_ of the window or wall-hole where they are mounted. This way the standing water drains off to the ground outside and isn't so deep on the inside of the unit that it adds too much humidity to the inside air. Check the mounting of this unit to make sure it leans slightly toward the outside. Also verify that any notch or drain hole on the outside end of the unit, intended to guide draining water, is not clogged with debris (which could also cause the standing water in the unit to be at too high a level). Also verify that the "vent" is closed, if this unit is equipped with said vent opening. An open vent panel can allow humid outside air inside as the unit is running. Hope this helps! ;)
