Question about Kenmore Room Air Conditioner

Open Question

Kenmore 18500 btu window a/c model 70181 brand new. Water in the pan is being kicked up by the fan making loud pinging noise as the water drops hit the inside of the a/c. Like the water level is too high and is touching the fan. It's I installed it correctly with about a 1/2 in downslope to the outside. There is no drain plug to let the water drip out. The manual said not to drill a drain hole.

The new Room A/C's do not have drains as it uses the condisation from the pan to help cool the coils this makes the unit more effecient.

The water should be draining out. Check wherever the drainage is for a blockage and clear it.

Refrigerator leaking bad at bottom after manual defrost still leaking


Ah the bottom. The drain pan is overfull and can not Handel the amount of water going into it. Normal running operation will evaporate any water left in the pan. You can pull out the fridge and drain the pan or clean up the water until it stops. Good luck

My unit is throwing water out of the front vents not a lot. It sound like the fan blade is hitting water It still cools but makes a loud noise .R bordeaux


The water and noise you hear is from the fan blades hitting backed up water in the drip pan. This occurs when the drain hole near the rear of the drain pan is clogged and/or the rear of the unit does not have enough downward tilt. Which allows the water to flow freely to the drain hole. The general rule of thumb for downward tilt is 1/4" to 1/2". Correcting these to things should solve the problem. Be sure to turn the unit OFF & Unplug it, before attempting remedial service work on the unit.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

It seems it's collecting water in the tray and blowing it out through the top vent, dripping from the bottom inside the house and is making a sound constantly like the fan is hitting water as it blows.


AC units do take the humidity out of the air and water collects in the bottom. The unit should be tilted slightly downward on the outside so that the water runs outrside. Make sure the drain holes are clear. The pinging noise is common, the fan is hitting drops of water, nothing to be concerned about

Water doens't drain properly and sitting there,


that's fairly common for window units, it's ok to drill a small hole in the underside of the case to drain the water, just be sure you don't puncture the condenser in the process.

Friedrich air conditioner


I used to be a "Factory Authorized" person, and I bet Friedrich would rather do a warranty call than have you return the machine for a refund. Phone them to see if they are cooperative. When the tech gets there, you can ask ALL your questions and point out every little sticky thing. That's his job!

The tech will be able to get parts and know how to adjust things.

For the second person, you have to look into the space where the fan is hitting something. A mirror and a flashlight will be needed. I kind of get a feeling the water isn't draining fast enough. Look for a plastic tube from the front water pan to the rear water pan. They get plugged up.
