You could have a clog in the condensate line or right in the outlet of the condensate drain pan on the cooling coil.Some times you can hook a wet vac up to the condensate drain and turn the vac on to **** out the blockage.You may have to cut the condensate line to do it but most of the time,it's pvc pipe and you can pick up a coupling and some glue at any plumbing supply or hardwear store.It could also be a cracked condensate pan or the pan might have shifted so it's not level and water is running over the edge rather than flowing down the drain line.Check for a blockage first.Once you put the drain line in the hose of the vac,just wrap a moist rag around the place where the vac and drain linc connect together to make a good seal.good luck,AG

SOURCE: How do we get rid of the water that collects in

There is no container, it burns it up inside into hot air and sends the moisture out the exhaust tube which you hooked up to the back of the unit and ran either outside or underneath house through flooring. There is one of these units that does come with a bucket in the front bottom drawer that comes out, but if its a PAC ct90 just like mine, there is no water empty it handles all that itself.

SOURCE: water and slimy stuff collecting in bottom of wall

It is condensation, mixed with dust. All A/c's, window, package or split units need to be serviced/cleaned every 6 mos to 1 year.
On Window A/C, remove/pull out of casing.
Clean Condenser Coils with mildly acidic foaming Solution, rinse well with water. Let dry
or blowdry before powering up.

In AC mode, the unit still has some dehumidifying properties. So, it may be that there is more humidity in the air this Summer, than in prior years. Having to empty the tank every 24 hours is not unusual. Be sure that the air intake filter is clean & check the exhaust hose for obstructions.

Hope this helped you & thanks fr choosing FixYa.

How much water do I need for the air conditioner


I've never seen an air condition device that needs to add water to work. Actually they RELEASE condensation water and you need to collect this water or drain it through a tube

Where is the drain pan drain hole on the bottom of the Fridgidaire FAC 127S1A air conditioner?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know where the drain hole is on your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAC127S1A. I see that the drain seems to be blocked, as water is collecting in the drain pan, instead of draining. The drain hole is located beneath the compressor. You might want to try tilting your air conditioner slightly to the outside, to allow better water drainage. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Water leaking in the inside of home.


Air conditioners take the moisture out of the air. When the air passes through the coils on the evaporator, they are cold. This causes the air to condense and water to form on the coils. It then drips off into a pan. When the pan is full if it is not drained, you will have an overflow and things get wet. How much water the unit collects depends on how much humidity is in the air, how much air you are moving through the coils and the temp of the coils.

I am empting the tank of water every two days, need help. Thanks


Air conditioners and dehumidifiers are closely related. Any air conditioner operating in a humid environment will extract moisture from the air and with an outside or window unit, this collected condensation has an escape path and these are not equipped with a container to hold the collected water .
A stand-alone portable unit does not have any other way to dispose of the condensate other than the internal container . . .and you.
Your unit is not defective, you just have it operating in a high-humidity area.

I have a sharp window AC unit, model af-609x. does it have a drain hole? there is no water coming out of it, but when we take it out of the window we get soaked from water somewhere inside the unitl


All window air conditioners will remove moisture from the air if there is any. Most window air conditioners collect this moisture in the bottom pan of the air conditioner and attempt to evaporate the moisture. The evaporation process works as follows: First, the water drips down off of the cold evaporator coils on the front of the unit. Then the water collects in the bottom of the air conditioner base, the "pan." If the air conditioner is installed properly it will be tilted slightly back.

The water then collects near the back of the unit. On some units, the fan blade used to cool the rear condensing coils will have a rim on the outside of the fins of the blade. This rim, or "slinger," will come close to touching the inside of the air conditioner pan when the fan is spinning. As the water collects in the pan and reaches the depth necessary for the fan ring to touch it, the ring will lift some of the water up and the fan will blow it at the condensing coils. Because the coils are warm, they will evaporate the moisture to the outside.

While this is happening it is normal to hear water splashing and sloshing around. As long as there is no water leaking inside the room that is being cooled there is no cause for concern.

Never drill into the bottom of and air conditioning unit to "let the water out."

Water collection in the air conditioner. Drain is


You need to clean the drain out as your first step. This is accessed by raising the vehicle on a lift then using something like a coat hanger pressed into the drain hole at the base of the firewall next to the transmission bellhousing on the passenger half of the vehicle.

It seems it's collecting water in the tray and blowing it out through the top vent, dripping from the bottom inside the house and is making a sound constantly like the fan is hitting water as it blows.


AC units do take the humidity out of the air and water collects in the bottom. The unit should be tilted slightly downward on the outside so that the water runs outrside. Make sure the drain holes are clear. The pinging noise is common, the fan is hitting drops of water, nothing to be concerned about

Sunbeam air conditioner


It is normal for water to collect in the lower base of an air conditioner. See the section entitled: "There is water sloshing around inside." If water leaks out the front it is usually because the unit is tilted forward in the window frame. All air conditioners should be installed so they tilt slightly back to allow for proper removal of the condensation collected.
