That is not the problem. These units are supposed to blow the condensate out the exhaust hose. Mine worked that way for a couple of years, when it was just as humid as it is now, but now it won't run a full day without filling. It is broken. I did a "make-do" solution, by hooking a hose permanently to the drain **** (garden hose and a clamp) and raising the unit on a strong platform so the hose can drain by gravity out the window, next to the exhaust duct.

The amount of condensate it is producing is dependant on how humid the air is it is cooling. The more humid it is the more condensate you have.

Why do red green and yellow lights flash and unit turns off


This is the unit telling you that you need to empty the water from the collection tank. As an air conditioner functions it removes water from the air. Much of it is discharged in the exhaust air but there is a collection tank that fills up as well.

Hook the hose that came with the air conditioner up to the rear of the unit, the upper discharge port (not the one on the floor), put the end of the hose in a bucket or outside, and turn the valve that surrounds the now-attached hose to "open." Press the power button on the unit twice quickly. it will power up and pump out the water. When it is done flowing turn the valve back to "closed," turn the unit off, and remove the hose. It should now function normally. This has to be done periodically.

Unit will not run after about an hour until tank is drained -if a container is placed under the unit with plug out the unit will run like. An awful lot of water seems to come out of the unit.


Thing to remember about an Air Conditioner is it is transferring heat, so if you are in a hot humid enviroment you are going to condense more water, which will fill the tank up quicker.

If the tank has a spot to connect a hose to the tank, and you have a drain nearby, might be worth hooking a hose up.

a thought anyways on a fix

But the water is normal

I have a Sharp Comfort Touch AC displaying E-1. ??


This is a reminder to clean the air filter. It happens every 720 hours of operation. Here are the steps to get it back up and running:
1. Power down the air conditioner using the "power" button on the front panel.
2. Unplug the air conditioner from the wall socket.
3. Hold the front panel "power" button down and plug the air conditioner in. Continue to hold the power button down as the machine goes through a brief test sequence (fan & compressor each come on briefly, etc). There is a "beep" sound at the end of the test sequence, and the machine will be off. At this point, you can release the power button.
4. Unplug the air conditioner.
5. Plug the air conditioner back in.
6. Congratulations! You should now be able to operate the air conditioner normally for another 720 hours, but only if you followed the instructions above EXACTLY.

Water coming from indoor unit


The problem is caused by fine particulants such as dust, pet dander, etc. which mix with the collected condinsation water and forms a grey gel eventually clogging up the drainage pipe. The solution is to attach a wet vaccuum hose to the discharge end of the drainage pipe and vaccuum out the gel. It is advisable to flush the system by adding water to the a/c's drain pan while the vaccuum is still running.

Sharp CV-P10NC AC unit it has a puddle of water coming down.


earlier models had a pan you had to empty .. your model has a small pump that is supposed to pump the water out the hot air vent (that goes thru the window} .. since its leaking it is likely that the pump inlet is clogged ... you might have to remove a panel to get at that ... it will be near the bottom of the unit (near the drainage nozzle) ... also check the hose that goes out thru the outside vent .. make sure its not cracked, clogged or smashed ... temporarily you can use the drain nozzle to drain off the water to a lower area (it cant drain up without the pump) ...

Water tank fills up every 3hrs


The amount of water that is getting extracted from the air in the room is based on how humid the air is. The good news is your unit is really getting quite a bit of moisture out of the air and as such, is working well to cool your room.

It is working as designed. You may want to see if you can connect a hose to a drain port (if yours has that included) to let the unit room longer without the need to drain the condensate (water) every 3 or so hours.

Hope this helps and best regards!

Continuous drainage


Take out the drain pan and look in left hand top of the compartment and you will see a drain hole for the pan.Plug the drain hole with a small rubber plug, I used an electrical wire nut wrapped with tape and it worked fine.replace the pan and the water will run out the back. A 3/4" garden hose should work for the drain hole.
