Hi, what is going on is the unit is working good so you will have condensation running down the front of the indoor coil. You will have a trough at the bottom that has collected dirt over the winter and has clogged up the drain. Some window units have a small supple clear hose attached to one end of the coil that may be plugged up, or this unit has what we call weep holes around it starting at the inside edges on each corner and around the out side. Go outdoors and look and see if you see a hose or very small holes that are plugged up. If the hose/if there is one, try and blow it out. What is happening, is the blade from the fan motor is picking up the water and slinging it into the home. Yes, you can solve this once you find how it drains and where it drains. Take a good strong light inside to check the front and see if indeed there is a hose. Keep me posted on this and I hope that I have led you in the right direction to solve this, and I am sure I have. Please let me know.

Unit lights up and hums but does not blow air

mcdevito75 here, Sounds like the fan motor is haging up or needs to be replaced, try the switch on/off then on/off a few times see if the fan kicks on, if not see your local a/c repair shop, they come to the house.

Cold air not blowing out evenly across the vent, mediumn cool on

Please check that the directional louvers are not set on one side. Also clean the filter screen in the front. It should be free from dust and pollen. Remove the front cover and switch on the air conditioner. Check the flow of air. If it is one sided then there is problem with your blower. For that you may have to call a technician.

Blowing water out the vents.

There is a water pipe from AC to outside,
if a lot of gel inside the pipe, it can make water flow become jam.
Clean it by blow the pipe with a compressor from outside.
Sometimes I did it with my mouth. LOL......
But its worked finally.
