Sounds like dripping water when on


Water, or in this case - condensation will be created and drip from the cooling coils inside the unit outdoors, if installed correctly. This is a normal condition. Like a cold glass of water sitting on a table or counter on a hot, muggy day; condensation will form. The amount of condensation forming on the glass - and cooling coils of the A/C - is directly related to the amount of humidity in the air.

Some A/C units have fans that not only force cool air out the front of the unit - but also spray condensate on the condenser coils (the coils that get hot and are visible from the outside) to help cool them down.

If water is dripping indoors - the A/C is tilted inward or drain holes on the bottom edges of the rear (outdoors) are clogged. Adjust the A/C support(s) so that it is tilted back (the bottom rear should be about 1/2" or 10mm lower than the bottom front) and inspect & clear obstructions from the drain holes as needed.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Frigidaire Gallery FRS24XGCW Regrigerator is not cooling. The freezer side is about the temp of the normal refrigerator side.


Remove the grill along the bottom of your refrigerator. Locate the drip pan, using a flashlight if necessary. The pan should be sitting on a set of black condenser coils.
Remove the pan and wash it. Use a mixture of warm, soapy water and bleach to kill the mold.
Reinstall the pan and the grill.
Locate the coils. They look like thin, black radiators and may be underneath the fridge or attached to the back.
If the coils are on the back, pull the refrigerator away from the wall, then vacuum the dusty coils, using the brush and crevice attachments. Reinstall the refrigerator grill.
If the coils are underneath, pull off the grill and remove the drip pan. Vacuum the dusty coils, using the crevice attachment to get between them. Take care not to damage the delicate coils. Reinstall the refrigerator grill.

My floor boards in my Cavalier are Soaked ..


If you've been using your air conditioner during this time, and it hasn't rained at all, then the small drain at the bottom of the a/c evaporator core may be plugged. When you use the a/c to cool the car the evaporator coil [located next to the heater core in the ductwork under the dash] is very cold and moisture from the hot humid air condenses on it as a result. This condensation dribbles down the core and accumulates in the plastic housing under it where it should then drain out a small hole and drip onto the ground. If the small drain gets plugged, which happens quite often, then the water fills up the housing until it overflows and then runs out and soaks the carpet on the front passenger side. The drain is located on the engine side of the firewall, passenger side, down low where the firewall begins to curve under. Usually a puff of air will clear the clog and the drain will work fine again. If the carpet is really wet it would be a good idea to remove it and get everything dry again as it tends to get pretty smelly if left wet. One last note: usually a leaky a/c unit will only make the passenger side carpet wet unless it's been leaking for a long time while a leaky windshield seal can make both sides wet depending on where it is leaking. Good luck, hope this helps you out!

What is the open air or closed air switch do? --I have an older GE wall air conditioner in an apartment---I hear water gurgling--outside --but there is no dripping--Thanks!


The outside setting is for bringing in the out side air,the closed keeps the air from the ac circulating and closes outside air off.The unit needs to be remove and took out side and cleaned out with a water hose,dirt and debris is keeping it from dripping out side,

AC unit causes carpet to get wet


Yes the A/C condensate drain is probably cloged up. I have not worked on a Montana but if you look at another GM mini van with the A/C on and the condensation driping out the bottom you can see where the drip comes from.
I hope this helps you.

There is water on passenger side front and rear


There is a rubber drain hose that should be attached to the bottom of the cooling/ blower unit on the passenger side of the car underneath the dash. This hose drains the condensation from the cooling unit. the hose may have gotten disconnected or it may be clogged up. I have had cases where a dirt dobber built a nest up inside the hose and clogged it up. Check this hose it may be the cause of the water puddling up in your car.

Always wondered why there is no drain hole at bottom rear of unit, so no condensation can drip away-now I find it not cooling well and the bottom front of the condenser is iced up. What to do?


Newer models of window AC's use either a flailing fan to spin the condensate out the sides of the AC (outside the window) or the heat of unit and outside air will evaporate the condensate.

Either way, any excess will spill over the back edge, hence the reason that manufacturer's recommend that the AC be installed with the rear of the unit slightly tilted down to prevent excessive condensate (water) from building up and/or coming inside the front of the unit.

As to the icing, it could be that the unit is undersized for the space you are trying to cool and can't keep up and is running all the time in an attempt to cool the air down in the room you have it installed in. Try letting the unit "defrost" by shutting it off for awhile (until the ice melts) and then keep the shades pulled and the door closed once you restart it. I also tell people to give the AC a chance to adjust by setting the cooling temp to around 10 cooler than the present temperature of the room.

It's really hard to completely cool down a hot room all at once, so unless you're willing to let the unit cool it down in stages, it might not be able to ever get a 90 degree room down to 65 degrees in one day, if ever. Give it a try and see what happens, otherwise, you might need a larger rated BTU unit to get the cooling you desire.

My Daewoo DSB 091L unit has started to drip condensate from the casing joint underneath the front drainage tray. I have cleaned the blocked drain pipe and proved the water drains away. The condensate drip...


Make sure that the flexible pipe is securely connected to the drainpan, it can come adrift and cause leaking. The way to check this is to make sure everything is dried out completely. Then open the front grill and carefully pour water so that it goes only into the drip pan. Pour slowly so that you do not overflow the pan. If water is coming out on the outside and you have no leaks on the inside, then you can rule out the perished or disconnected drainpipe theory. In this case your unit may be short of refrigerant causing excessive run time and a freeze up of the evaporator.
