Wall AC Unit blows cold air for a little bit then blows hot air. If I turn it off for a while, it will do the same thing.


When you mansion water in the pan, do you mean the indoor coil pan or the outdoor catch "pan"? I've seen some models have a drain plug that's on the bottom of the outdoor panel or underneath. And that plug should remain installed. It uses that water to cool the copper freon tube that curves along the bottom of the outdoor section. With plug removed it can overheat. Basically it does not drain onto the ground outside, it retains its water. And the air entering side of outdoor coil is clean? May sound like repetition(forgive me). The side you see clearly is the air leaving side. The dual shaft motor has a run capacitor that may be weakening. And the outdoor air that passes thru the outdoor coil may be recirculating out then directly back in to the unit causing it to overheat. Anything blocking airflow outside? 10 mins of runtime then shouting down tells me its overheating. It may even be the electrical circuit. Loose connections can cause high amperage, low voltage issue and cause the ac load to over amp. Over amp=over heat. Hope this helps!

Were do i get the manuel for model number ph3 12r03 is the model number were or how do I drain the water and can you send me a manual


Here is the link to the manual:

http://s3.amazonaws.com/szmanuals/b0348062b23e23cd40550b61e1dc5f43


Here are those particular instructions:


Compressor Indicator


The " " icon will light up on the control panel display when the compressor turns on. The " " icon will turn off when the compressor shuts off.

Emergency Condensate Holding Tank


When the room temperature is low and the indoor humidity is high, the air conditioner may not be able to evaporate some of the moisture fast enough. When this happens, the water will accumulate in an emergency condensate tank inside the unit. Once the emergency condensate tank is full, the unit will automatically shut off and the " " will appear on the control panel display. To empty the condensate tank, unscrew the screw plug at the bottom back of the unit. You will need a small pan, approximately 1" high to catch the water coming out of the condensate tank. Once the condensate tank is drained, the unit will begin working within a few minutes. The emergency condensate tank holds approximate
ly 1.5 Liters of water.

Another option is to purchase a small hose from a hardware store that can fit around the 5/8" drain plug on the back of the unit and drain the unit into a gravity drain or larger pan for continuous drainage.

To resume operation quickly, empty the water container according to the following steps:

1. Turn the unit off. Do not move the unit when the water container is full.

2. Place the drain pan accessory under the drainage port at the back of the unit.

3. Remove the screw plug from the drain hole. The condensate water will drain out automatically. When the drain pan is full, screw the screw plug back onto the drainage hole to stop the water flow. Empty the drain pan. Repeat until all the water is emptied.

Once the water container has been emptied, screw the plug back onto the drain hole. Do not allow the
water to drip continuously into the drain pan, as it might easily overflow.

Why does wall make ticking noise


Marvin, it could be water dripping into the drain pan under the unit or the metal of the outer shell is cooling off (metal stress). Also, is the drain pan is full the fan blades may be hitting the water, In which case the rear of the unit needs to be tilted down 1/4" to 1/2". So, the water will flow to the rear of the pan and out the drain hole.These sounds are normal and will do no harm. If you want to test this theory, turn the unit OFF & unplug it. If you still hear the ticking sound, it's one of the above.

Hope this helps & thanks for choosing FixYa.

the inside unit should be mounted with a slight tilt to the outside - so the water can drain outside.
also - be sure your drain hole (in the unit) is not plugged - either with dirt/debris.

BTU is leaking water from the inside.


Take the cover off the inside unit and look for the drip pan under the evaporator coil. It should have either one drain in the middle of the pan or a series of smaller drains along the back of the pan. The drain(s) is probably clogged up and causing the pan to overflow into your home. Also check the drain line on the outside wall where the refrigerant lines come through the wall for a blockage.

Water running inside the a/c and down the wall. I do not see any drain holes on the bottom of this unit to let the water drain outside. Model M7X05F2B-D Alex


In the drain pan under the unit (the part that is outside the window), there is a drain hole, that drains the accumulated moisture/water. It's clogged and that's why you can't see it. Or it may be a small gap in the rear of the drain pan, that' s supposed to do the same thing. If the unit is sitting perfectly level (front to back), the water does not drain well. A slight slope helps.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Split System Air conditioner


There normally two types of leakages from the wall unit.
1.The warm air in the room when comes in contact with the cooling coil of heat exchanger (consisting of fine fins where compressed refrigerant evaporates) looses its heat & cannot retain the same moisture content at lower temperature at the point of contact with evaporator. There is a provision of a drain pipe to carry this condensed water to outside water drain. So if the drain pipe is choked or the coupling joint of the drain pipe at the bottom of cooling coil is not proper, there will be water leakage, This can be easily attended by physically looking at the fittings.
2.The second problem can be the leakage of the refrigerant. If there is second type of problem, then there will be very little or no cooling irrespective of continuous running of air conditioner. This can be easily checked by feeling the temperature of outlet air from the air conditioner.

Conclusion-As you have written that there is leakage from the air conditioner, but you have not written whether it is visible or invisible. If the leakage is visible, it is problem number 1 & if it is invisible, it is problem number 2.

If you are not satisfied you are free to ask for more explanations.
