The unit may be too leveled for the water to get out check and see if you can lower the unit to the side of the drain...not much just small tilit and see if the water will come out...

Why is water leaking from unit


The drain is plugged up. This causes water to overflow out of the drain pan and on to the floor. Water comes from the evaporator coil, when it condenses water vapor out of the air to remove humidity. If the drain is not plugged up, then the air conditioner is not level. Meaning it is tilted forward or backwards enough so that the water cannot reach the drain properly and it overflows onto the floor.

Water pours into my ceiling and out the vents even when on low cool


Have you noticed a reduction in water/condensation running across and off your roof? Most likely have plugged drain holes on upper (roof) unit. You'll have to remove cover and look for blockages at drains for evaporator ( front) which has a drip pan under it.

Water is leaking from the unit even though the plug is in the drain hole


Why is the drain hole plugged???? Air conditioners create water when operating and this water must have a route to drain to the outside.

I have a split system SAP-K181AHA, SAP-K241AHA that is leaking water from unit inside house.


Air conditioners wring moisture from the surrounding air that collects in a pan under the cooling coil in the inside unit.

Chances are that the condensate drain is plugged or the drain pan is plugged. Look for a hose that exits the inside unit and runs to a drain. You can follow it back to the drain pan of the A/C unit. If there is water sitting in the pan, then either the hose or pan or both are plugged.

Turn the unit off, get a small bucket and remove the drain tube. Catch the water in the bucket. Blow through the drain line until it's clear. If the thought of doing this is too repulsive, then use an air compressor or even a manual tire pump. Now check the drain pan in the unit for debris and remove as much as possible from the pan and the drain fitting.

Both the pan and drain line should be checked at the beginning of each cooling season.

Reinstall the drain tube and see how it works!

Droplets of water are coming from the vents and it's making a noise like something is rattling around inside. What could this be?


The problem with this unit is that the evaporator, or the part of the air conditioner that 'creates' the colder air is not draining correctly. Pertaining to a window unit, it needs to be installed correctly with the correct amount of tilt toward outside, to allow the evaporator condensation water to drain. You may also want to check to make sure there aren't any plugged drain holes in the air conditioner housing.

The rattling you hear is most likely the blower fan spinning against the held water inside the unit.

I hope this helps! :)

My dometic RV rooftop air conditioner is leaking on the inside of the camper even after I cleaned the water condensation drain on top of the roof. What could be causing this? The fan is blowing the water...


Remove all covers and look down with them removed and see if the coil drain pan has a stopped up exit where the water drains out and into the rear of the AC unit.

If the unit is off level it could cause a draining problem too.

The directions have the steps to take when a "P1" error is flashing.

1) Remove the plug (the upper black plug not the lower) and attach the included drain hose.
2) Put a bucket under the hose.
3) Press the TURBO button for MORE THAN THREE SECONDS. The WATER INDICATOR will begin flashing telling the user that the FORCED WATER DRAINAGE feature is activated. You will even hear a little whirring noise.
4) Wait until the WATER INDICATOR stops flashing and no more water is flowing out of the drainage tube.
5) After the water is finished flowing, make sure that you FASTEN the DRAIN PLUG. Of course, failure to do this will flood the area.
6) The unit should now work.

You can also move the unit somewhere that you can remove the plug and let the water flow freely (you do not need to have it plugged in for this method) and once the water is finished, replace the plug and fire it up. It should then work correctly. It's also mentioned that the water should be drained quite often to prevent corrosion. I do it every few months and of course when winter approaches.

I like this air conditioner and have had really nice luck with it. A little loud but who cares. That's why there are SUBTITLES on the television.

Hope this helped.
