Usually when an air conditioner leaks water inside, it's due to it being out of level. Place a small level on top of the unit. It should pitch slightly down away from the house. Storm window frames are a common cause of this. placing a piece of wood under the unit to pitch it away from the house should solve your 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.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Water leaking out of hose on a fujitysu split system ast24rga


Normally, an Air Conditioner removes water from the air and that water condenses on the coils of the inside section that does the cooling. The water condenses on the cooling coils just like moisture condenses on the outside of a glass of ice water.
This excess water drains out of the cooling section through a "drip tube" and is supposed to drain outside of the house, or a drainage system. Your "drip tube" has either not been installed (if it is a brand new installation), has separated and water is now dripping into the house instead of outside of it. Or it is clogged. This happens when algae builds up inside the "drip pan". If that is the case, you can purchase "algaecide" tablets which kill the algae that is clogging the drip pan and preventing water from draining out through the drip tube. These tablets can be found in many hardware stores, refrigeration supply companies, or even Walmart. You can put a tablet inside the pan. (You will have to remove the cover of the unit). You can often use a little bit of Bleach and that will act as an algaecide. Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

How to stop a leak


the water leak is not a big concern -other than the mess it causes, but as to the AC's operational status it is supposed to draw water/humidity from the 'cooling space' so - it's still doing it's job (I'm assuming it's cooling too).

As to the water - I would check the drain to be sure it's not clogged up - which is usually the problem. If the drain is clear and the AC is draining (to the outside) properly - I would then check and make sure the AC is tilted backwards out the window.

good luck!

Leaking water


mcdevito75 here, The portion of the a/c unit that goes outside the window is the evaporator and suppose to leak water, check the drain hole in the unit floor on the outside portion of the unit, reach this drain hole thru another window or have your local a/c repair shop look at it, they come to the house.

AF-S80MX Thru-Wall/Window Air Conditioner: What kind of refrigerant does this unit uses? ...


Most new window units are using R-22 or it's most common alternative R-410A - but you will need to check the 'data tag' on the AC to be sure. All AC units have a data tag (either metal or paper label) - somewhere on the AC - which gives you model number, size, voltage, and type of Refrigerant, as well as other info.

good luck!

Excessive Leak


Remove the plug and tilt the AC slightly downward on the outside so the water will flow outside where it is supposed to go. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Leaking air conditioner unit


I suppose that the water is coming from the unit where the blower motor is. Condensation is created by the evaporator coil while its running and is suppose to drain into a pan under it and through a pipe to the outside. This pipe could be stopped up. The easiest way to fix that is to blow air through the pipe from the outside. It probably comes out close to the outside unit. It could be that your inside filter is dirty causing reduced air flow and making the evaporator freeze too. Change the filter. That may help. There are other steps that you could take if these don't help. Contact me by email if you need to. Cant run over there because I'm in Missouri but may be able to help in a chat room. kstfas@yahoo.com
