Depending on you ambient humidity, you can get a lot of condensate water. Think of it this way, your air conditioner is trying to cool the air, just like ice cubes in a glass. Wouldn't you expect to the outside of the glass to be dripping wet if you set it out for a while?

Unit is off and displays blinking stop and won't come on...


My unit shut down in the middle of the night and had the blinking STOP on a dark screen, would beep 10 times when plugged in aswell. I set the unit on top of a pan and opened the bottom water drain plug. After draining alot of water out the unit allowed itself to be turned back on again. Guess its either extremely humid or the dual hose setup doesn't evaporate the water as fast as they made out. Anyways, I haven't found anyone else post this so I hope this helps someone out there.

My new frigidaire window unit air conditioner makes a constant "water gurgling" noise after it's been running for an hour or so. The tilt is correct - have I missed a plugged drain?


Hello, some window units will not have a drain plug on the bottum, instead they use the condenser fan to sling water on the condenser to evaporate the condensate. The gurgling is normal when humidity is high and alot of condensate builds up.

I own 2 Haier air conditioners. Same model number, purchased at the same time. Plugged them in yesterday and one is collecting water in the bottom and shuts off. The only way to get it to come back on is...


Condensation occurs when warm, humid air is pulled across a cold fins of an air conditioner and blown out the front as cool, dry air.

What is happening with your air conditioner sounds to be normal operation - here's why:

The condensate usually drips onto the ground from traditional window air conditioner units or through a pipe to the ground from remote air handlers of split systems. Since yours has no place to drain away into soil or waste pipe, it is collected in a compartment that must be emptied, just like a dehumidifier. When the compartment is full, the unit shuts off - otherwise the compartment would overflow on the the flooring or carpet. This could be a very expensive repair if hardwood floors were damaged or carpeting were to become moldy. Even more so if the the space under yours were finished - like an apartment building or if you used this on the second floor of your home - and damage to the ceiling below were damaged.

You could operate the device if it were connected by a hose to a drain at or below the bottom of the connection point (a floor drain, shower drain, etc.) or if the unit were placed on a counter top and allowed to drain into a sink or other drain / waste pipe below the the hose connection point. The hose must not get higher than the connection point at the drain plug on the air conditioner to work properly.

I hope this helps and good luck.

The air conditioner is pouring water on the floor!


Sounds like your water drain line is plugged. There should be a bundle of wires tubes and a drain hose that goes through the wall to the outside unit. The water drain hose should split off outside and drain on the ground. You should check that the drain hose is not plugged or kinked somewhere. The hose must also slope downwards from the inside unit to where it drains outside. You can check if the hose is plugged by blowing into it if you can reach the hose outside. You should be able to easily blow through the tubing back into the house. I have done this with this type of unit at night (determined to get it working), and was able to get it to start draining properly. Before I got it to start draining, I had the same waterfall that you are seeing. The unit had been off all winter. Hope this helps.

My air conditioners is a everstar model mpa-08cr, and i need to instal the water hose on the side of unit.


Hey there, just follow these simple steps then you'll be on your way
To connect the continuous drain option. Remove
the water tank from the cabinet. Inside the
cabinet (water tank area) you will find a section of
hose hanging beside the water tank, which is plugged
at the end. Remove the plug
from the end of the hose and install the drain hose connector
(included with this unit) into the
end of this hose section. Route the end of the
hose (with drain connection) into the water tank,
then through the hole provided in the face of the
water tank. Attach a section of garden hose (to
suit your continuous drain option requirements)
to the drain hose connector. Place the open end
of the hose directly over the drain area in your
basement floor.
Please make sure the drain hose
section routed through water tank does not interfere
with the correct positioning of the water tank inside
the cabinet, or the will fail-safe switch mechanism will
be activated, not allowing the unit to operate.

My indoor unit airconditioner located in my basement


Hi, all a/c's produce water as condensation. Portables have a hose connector near the base. Wall mounted have a permanent hose that allows water to vent out. This pipe can get blocked by dust and fluff usually at the elbow joint. Try useing a small drain cleaning wire or extract all the water out ( i use a big syringe ) and put half a cup full of kettle boiled water in, or a drain cleaner. be sure to flush out well. Good luck. steve, UK
