If you continue to operate your AC with the drain 'closed up' it will eventually :"run over" and probally into the house.

The drain hole should be open so your 'condensate water' can drain to an outside location.

Water is very bad for AC compressors - your service tech doesn't have a clue as to what he's talking about.

good luck!

HOW DO I GET THE WATER TO DRAIN?


Sounds like your drain needs a strap. Does all the water drain out as soon as the unit turns off?

My ac window units are not draining water and creating mold in my house


Check the drain tube between the evaporator side to the back of the unit. It may have a packing plug installed. If there is one remove it or clean the drain tube.

HOW TO UNCLOG DRAIN PAIN IN AC WINDOW UNIT


There technically isn't a drain pan in AC units. Some have a little hole in the back, some do not. If they do not, then the evaporator fan "slings" up the water accumulated from the condensation in the air, unto the coil to help cool the inside of the unit. If there is no hole, do not drill into the machine. You are likely to hit a sealed system component and damage the unit entirely.

My ac is spitting watter by the vent, and making noise i think it happends when the fan inside hits the water that acumulates inside is there something i can do to fix this and make the water go out


The AC fan is blowing the water that has condensed on the cooling pipes.It is possible that there is clogging of dirt in the fins of the cooling pipe'
this results in water logging.The filters must be clogged and dirt has accumalated.Use a good air spray or a water jet to clean.The condensed water must flow to the rear of the unit to drain out .{A/C must be fitted slightly tilted.}.Hope this helps.

Water accumulation and ice buildup


There is already a hole just remove the ac unit from the window,and it`s shell,take it outside and use a water hose to clean it out,and remove anything on the inside that may stop up the drain hole.This needs to be done every year before spring or summer.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Water not draining out the back


Humidity is where the water comes from. If humidity is low, very little if any, water.

Water leak on passenger side on 99 chevy s 10 not anterfreeze, leaks when not being driven


there is only one thing that leaks water there, that is the AC condensation drain, water forms as part of the AC cooling the evaporator core, this water must be drained away or it will flood onto passenger area, so there is a drain on the passenger side at bottom of firewall, will leak allot of water depending on how humid the air is.

Water in the Unit


Most of the AC Unit lately are not made to drain. So when you have water collecting inside the unit, the condenser and the evaporator is suppose to help dissolve the water.
When water is collecting inside the appliance like that, it is either because the ac unit is not installed correctly or you live in a high humid area.
