if its an air conditioner not humidifier etc, then no!

it will create condensation which can mislead people into thinking it has a leak, this is normal. it is only moisture taken from the air we are cooling

Air conditioners do not use water. What you may have is an evaporative air cooler.

How do i add water to the air conditioner

You don't add water to the unit! It is self contain refrigerant in the coils and piping. Water is from condensation the is removed from the air and should drain towards the rear of the unit to the outside where it is not wanted! I hope this helps you to understand your unit somewhat.

We just got this air conditioner and it did not have a manual, do we need to add any water to this unit?

You do not need to add water to the air conditioner. Water will form and drain outside when it cools the space down, as it also pulls moisture from the air.

No you never need to add water to an air condioner. An air conditioner removes water from the air. Get back if you have any other questions, I want to assist you.

Lost manual

No, you don't put water into air conditioners. They make their own water and it is an inconvenient by-product that needs to be disposed of in some way. The A/C will use the outside fan blade to fling the water on the hot coil, let it drain out, or both.
