It is for out side air,but rain is not supposed to come threw it,remove the unit from the window and clean it out,there is most likely trash in the unit making the rain water run in the house.

Water leaking in house

Really need more info on the situation but if it is a typical window mount unit make sure its angled a little so the water from the unit drains to the outside not into the house. If it is from rain then you need a better weatherstripping job around the unit.

I have a window unit (ESA 3109-L) that I purchased this summer. I came home from a long weekend away to find water all over the window sill, drywall, and floor. It's coming from the air conditioner. Any...

First.The unit needs to be tilted back more so the water drains out of it to the lower back of the unit.

Next,make sure the drain hose or hole is not clogged up.

Last,if this never happend before be sure you didnt have any bad wind and rain while you were gone,somtimes a hard driving storm with wind drivin rain can find its way in around the a/c .

Why do most window air conditioners have vents on top - would not rain get in and ruin something? Should I be concerned?

Thee window air conditioners are designed to keep the rain water on the outside. There are no components that the rain can get to damage anything.

A lot of rain came in through the unit and now it won't run.

bad installation, no there is not a fuse, if the unit has digital controls they are probably fried, if it has the old style turn knobs you probably have shorted the run capacitorwhich can be in a few places but usually low in the unit, just look around, unplug of course and take apart make sure capacitor is not swollen

A/C Won't turn on

sounds like the rain is getting onto the electronics. let the unit dry out and maybe cover the top part of a/c that is sticking out outside

If your condenser blow air up through the top of the condenser and you are concern about rain water affecting the unit.

You can install a roof or rain hood about 4ft above the unit to keep the rain off, The unit must be able to blow air off without causing Hi head pressure to affect the unit, The condenser must breathe or desipate heat freely.

Tell me if your question answered or if it works for you.
