You will want to remove the panel in front of the air handler, usually a few 5/16 screws.
Once open then with a flashlight look down inside where the water collects in the condensate drain pan.
Verify that the pan is not full of water or algae build up.
If it is, then attach a wet vac to your drain outside and while it is pulling on the drain line spray some water inside till it is fully clean.
If it is not full of water then check the pvc pipes that are attached to the drain pan, they may have came loose and may need to be teflon taped and reconnected to the pan. Also verify there are no cracks in the pan.
Lastly inspect the bottom of the evaporator coil (Not the top) pull out the filter and make sure the coil is clean or water could drip down past the pan into your dwelling. Make sure as well that the insulation on your panel that covers the unit is intact and not worn away.

Good Luck!

My Hi Super air conditioner is leaking into the house. What is the problem and how can I fix it?


It is just the condensation generated by the cooling which has to be drained from the unit via a drain tube. When the drain tube is blocked by debris (often by dust build up) the water cannot drain out and will overflow from the unit. Often these blockages will occur where there is a bend in the drain tube and sometimes these drains are not installed very well.

Open the front of the unit and locate the drain tube. You will need a long piece of strong wire or cable to run down the tube to try and free the debris and get the water flowing again. You can do the same at the other end of the tube also if need be. You may need to tip some water down the tube to help clear it also.

I think you will find it is fairly easy to resolve yourself.

My danby DPAC 12030 is leaking water down the front


Since, I believe your model s a multifunction unit (Air Conditioner and Dehumidifier), Which can be operated together or separately. There are two things which may be causing this problem. If the dehumidifier function is operating the water collection tank o bucket may be full and needs to be emptied. In conjunction with this, the air intake filter on the inside front of the unit may be dirty or clogged.

There is a third thing that is also playing a role in this. The tubing that drains the water into the tank may be clogged. Which causes the water to backup and overflow. You can clear any clogs by using an 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, that is appropriately sized to fit inside the tube or hole. Insert it carefully and work it in past the bend in the tube, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. The rotate (twist) it as you carefully remove it. As you reach the end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow. CAUTION: BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY SERVICE OF THE UNIT, TURN THE MASTER ON/OFF SWITCH TO OFF & UNPLUG THE UNIT FROM THE ELECTRICAL OUTLET.

Also keep in mind When dehumidify mode is selected, the indicator light will shine ORANGE. Air is
dehumidified as it passes through the unit,without being in full cooling mode. The fan will operate on medium speed. If room temperature is 25°C (77°F), fan speed can be adjusted; otherwise fan speed is fixed to "low". Note: The warm air exchange hose must vent inside the room when using Dehumidify Mode, not outside as it does when cooling. If the unit is vented outside, some cooling will occur.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

My window unit air conditioner unit is dripping profusely out of the bottom of the unit inside of my apartment. the drip pan is overflowing.


Hello, make sure the unit is tilted toward the outside a bit, if it is level the condensate will collect in the front and start dripping inside the house. Also, if the unit has a drain make sure it is clean so the water can drain out properly.

WATER LEAKING


Water should come out of the back of a wind unit when it is humid out, usually a drain hole. If water is leaking inside from a window unit, check that the outside drail hole is not clogged or maybe it is not tilted downward enough outside (Usually a very slight tilt down toward the outside to help the water drasin out the back outside). Also, if you have excess water forming, you may need to clean the coil. For central air units water should be drippng outside the home via a pipe or tubing and if the drain tube or pipe is clogged with scum that forms inside the pipe water will back up and overflow in the house near the heater/air conditioning unit. Also, some units have a pump to pump the water out and it may not be working.

We have a window unit model ash08fas1 and it is leaking water into the window to our carpet. Does this model come with a drip pan or plug that needs to be moved? And how do we access it?


Look at your unit from outside the house. The back of the air conditioner should be slightly lower than the front. If it is level or the front of the air conditioner is lower it will drip into the house. Some window units have a drain for the water outside and some don't. Look for a hole in the bottom of the unit outside and if you find one make sure it is not plugged. Also dirty coils can cause a frost buildup on the inside of the unit. This will drip also. If this is the case you should see the ice buildup by removing the front cover or removing the front filter.

LEAKING ON THE INSIDE OF THE HOUSE


There is an outlet to allow condensed water to flow outside the house from the AC unit runs. Please check whether there is any dust block in the tube and once you clean it water will flow out and not into the house. Sometime the garden lizard or flycatcher could get into the drain pipe and got stuck and block the outflow of condensed water.

Please ensure that the window air conditioner is installed in such a manner the out side portion of the unit is slanted or tilted to the back so that the water will run out and not into the room. By providing some pad to the front portion of the unit the above could be achieved and condensed water will not flow into the room.

It sounds as if the unit overflow tube has disconnected. You may need to turn the electric off to unit, take the plastic housing off and see if the tube is still connected.
