Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. If the condensation is running in instead of outside then the window unit is probably leveled the wrong way try and lean the unit toward the outside to get the water to run backwards toward the outside so the water can run back.

Thermostat on whirlpool window unit keeps resetting to 86. will not cool room.


Check if the compressor runs when you start your air-conditioner. If it runs, make sure the evaporator sweats and the condenser at the back blows hot air. If not, you have freon leak and check for oil marks inside your a/c unit.If the compressor does not start, check your compressor overload, capacitor, and use a clamp meter to determine if you have a defective compressor.

Grill temprature not down


By grill you mean the air outlet?
If the large line going to the compressor is ice cold and the coil is not sweating profusely the compressor may have become inefficient which is not repairable.

Window Air Conditioner Sweats


You need to seal the portion of the air conditioner that is inside the window from the portion that is outside the window, Sweating is caused by moist outside air leaking in and contacting the cold portion of the air conditioner. Do not use duct tape, buy aluminum tape which is what professionals use to seal air leaks on ducts. Home Depot sells the tape. Buy the smallest quantity you can find that will do the job ( it can be expensive ) unless you plan to go into air conditioning duct installation.

For best results use some form of insulation over the accordian like side baffles ( cut to fit) . Styrafoam from packaging or silver backed insulboard (Home Depot). Now tape the sides of the insulation to all sides of the window frame, bottom of the window, the sill, and the air conditioner.

Unless you enjoy doing this every year - plan on this being a permanent installation. It is a tedious job because the aluminum tape is not very forgiving and has a peel off backing but it sticks forever.
