You may have a clogged drain or the unit is installed without enough angle pitch for the water to drain to the back of the unit toward the outdoor section of the unit. I'm assuming it's a window air conditioner? The moisture condenses on the cooling coil near the filter and should drip down into a condensate drain pan, then the water should drain to the back of the unit into a pan at the condenser coil fan that is rejecting the heat outside. The fan blade usually has a ring on the outdoor fan that pick up the condensate moisture the fling accumulated water onto the hot condenser coil to evaporate it. Also the filter should not be touching the cooling coil. Make sure it in the correct slot. Some a/c cooling coil require a wetting agent that allow the water to slide down the coil and not pull off of the coil into the indoor circulating fan.
No. You have to make sure when you install it into the window that the end (back) that is outside is slightly lower than the (front) end that goes into the window. That way it drains to the back, over the lip and onto the ground. If you have it at an angle and you are still having a problem then slightly increase the angle. If you drill a hole in the bottom of the unit be careful not to hit any coils or lines. Also make sure you do it at the back of the unit. Again watch the coils. If you hit the coils than you will lose all of the freon and the unit won't cool at all until repaired.
Hi - Generally speaking, it is normal for Frigidaire refrigerators to making a vibrating, snapping, dripping noises however not a chugging noise. From what you have described it sounds like it could POSSIBLY be the drain sucking in air or it could be refrigeration through the evaporator. A constant noise could indicate a serious problem with one or more components. This is a repair that should be left to a refrigerator service expert.
Bring it outside or to your tub and tip it on a 45 degree angle some water will drip out...once a puddle has come out of this thing it will work again but u will need to properly drain it eventually unless u wanna tip it and drain it every few days. But thats what ive been doing with mine...
From everything you described, it sounds like more water than usual is collecting in the drip fan. Despite the unit draining out the rear drain hole. Check the drain hole to make sure it is totally clear and not partially clogged. A pipe cleaner works well to do this. Be sure to turn the unit OFF & unplug it, before working on it.
Hope this helped you and tanks for choosing FixYa.
Hi in my experience your better off removing a lower radiator hose at its lower point to drain the cooling system as radiator drain taps are often made of plastic and snap off when you try to undo them ,giving you a bigger problem of how to fix a dripping snapped off tap

If this was a slow moving loss you should clean the cooling
coil under the refrigerator. Remove the bottom snap in grille and vacuum out
the dirt and dust from the coil and anything else you can reach. You may need
to make an extension with paper towel tubes flattened a little and tape to get
into the cramped spaces. I use a piece of clear plastic pipe stuck in the
suction with a long angled split cut on the cleaning end. Maybe also move the fridge out, vacuum and clean
the flooring area also. (And every 6 months)
Check/clean intake air filter and condenser fins,as well as be sure condensation drain is clear as well. Sometimes if not the right angle, moisture remains inside unit rather than draining outside, or wherever your drain is, make sure it's clear and draining well.
For some reason, newer AC window units no longer are made with a fluid drain. I think the intent is for the unit to be mounted at a sufficient angle (it MUST be angled back so the fluid drains toward the back of the unit) that the rear (outside) fan kicks the water over the condenser coil and gets rid of it that way, it also increases cooling ability slightly in this manner by misting the condenser coil. I would suggest increasing the angle of the back tilt by adding a 2x4 maybe under the unit to allow it to tilt? Alternately, you can drill a hole in the rear corner of the unit to drain fluid, but this is not recommended for several reasons...
1) It will usually cause rust to start at the drill hole. 2) you could accidentally puncture the coil system while drilling 3) the manufacturer did not make a hole, because one was not intended.
