Our FAH086J112 Frigidaire Gallery Air conditioner is leaking water from the front and not draining out the back. There are three silver caps underneath. Are these supposed to be removed for drainage?

Get a bubble level and make sure the housing is sloped away from the house and yes remove at least one of the drain hole plugs.

Where is the condensate line on a Frigidaire wall air conditioner?


There is sometimes a plastic hose between the evaporator and condenser side on the bottom of the case. Other models simply have holes in the metal for condensate to drain into the condenser side . Make sure there is no obstruction to the hose or holes. If you find none, then check the level of the unit. It MUST be slanted so the back of the unit is lower than the front.

Where is there a drain hole for the water?


Your Frigidaire window unit is the same as any other window unit. Typically window unit air conditioners don't have a drain. This is why you have to make sure the back of the unit (the end that goes outside) is slightly lower than the front when you put it in a window. When it gets so high with water it drains out the back onto the ground.

How do I clean the condensation drain on my Fridgidaire fac127s1a?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know how to clean the condensation drain on your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAC127S1A. I see that the drain seems to be blocked, as water is collecting in the drain pan, and beginning to leak from the front. The drain hole is located beneath the compressor. You would have to get underneath that to clean the drain. You might want to try tilting your air conditioner slightly to the outside, to allow better water drainage. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

There is a leak of water in front of the Air Conditioning unit


Clean floor of unit under coils so front coil water can drain under the coils to the back drain.
Don't forget to tilt them unit a bit to the back to allow the water to drain towards the back.

My air conditioner is leaking from the front of it


Are the three drain plugs tightened?

If you're stumped, try to drain the inside tanks and see what happens: Unscrew the three drain valves at the back, and put a pan to catch any water (only a few cups). Let us know what happens.

Floors in the front are wet and the car is starting to smell


Three possibilities--the windshield is leaking water, the heater core is leaking antifreeze (should smell like antifreeze), or the air conditioner evaporator (near the heater core) has a plugged drain tube and the water condensed out of the warm air is running back into the cab. Hope this helps!

What is the correct way to install the pumps on the units-now all three are leaking and installers don't seem to be able to help us


Hi,

As rule of thumb, the pupm should be at the lowest point of the drain. Next the drain pan should be tilting a bit towards the back so that water will not drip in front but towards the drain itself.

I hope this helps

Water Leaking


Dear Customer,
The likely reasons for a leaking AC are...
1) Improperly installed.
A window air conditioner must be slightly lower at the rear than the front. This allows the water being removed from the room to drain to the back of the machine. A difference of one inch is sufficient. This is always the first thing to check. Many are improperly installed in the haste to get relief from the heat. If installed too low at front the water will flow into the room rather than outside. If installed too low at rear, water can roll out front edges before has chance to exit towards rear drain.


  1. Icing up.
    Water being de-humidified can turn to ice if there are problems with the cooling system. There are many reasons for an air conditioner to produce ice. Remove front grille while machine is operating. If ice is present on the cooling coil you will probably need service. For more information see our other article: Why window Air Conditioners Ice up.


  1. Air leakage around air conditioner.
    If warm air is able to enter around the air conditioner it will encounter cooler, dryer air. When they meet condensation will occur. If water leaking from front of air conditioner inspect to see if dripping from body of machine, or water droplets clinging to front area. To test, operate machine for 30 minutes and then use flashlight to check under front edge of base. Small water droplets here indicate an air leakage problem. Add foam insulation to stop warm air from infiltrating.


  1. Drain hole blocked.
    Rear of air conditioner base has a drain hole or groove to allow water to escape. If becomes blocked water can back up. To test, operate machine for 30 minutes and then inspect if draining properly. If appears blocked use a small piece of wood to open drain hole at rear of metal base. CAUTION: Never be tempted to drill holes into the air conditioner body to relieve water pooling. Severe damage can result.


  1. Internal drains blocked.
    There are small passageways that allow water to drain from front of air conditioner to the rear. If they become blocked water will pool at front of machine and overflow onto floor. If this happens the air conditioner will require removal from window and servicing.


  1. Outside temperature too cold.
    This occurs at end of cooling season. If outside temperatures drops below 60 degrees Fahrenheit at night the cooling coil may ice up. If no leakage at bedtime but water in front of machine in morning, suspect this problem. If this problem suspected turn off machine before bedtime and restart as day warms. Alternately, operate machine at night with selector switch in ‘fan only’ position. This will circulate room air during night but not allow cooling.
Hope u find this useful. I'll be thankful if u could rate this. thank you.
