First, make sure the unit is level. If so, you have a blockage or kink in the drain tube. Careful inspection should reveal any blockage, & you may be able to poke it thru with a piece of coathanger wire. Don't use excessive force, any block should be easily freed.

Sounds like the drain line is blocked you would have to take this unit apart in order to check this. I would use a can of air to blow out the leakage. Also make sure the unit is level

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore C120

Interestingly, your Kenmore Portable AC is manufactured by Delonghi. Occasionally, what you are experiencing happens when the humidity level is high and the air intake filter needs to be cleaned.
That also means that you will need to drain the tank, at least once.

You know where the drain plug is, so you can either carefully take it outside to drain or put a low sided container, capable of holding 1 1/2 quarts of water under the drain plug. If you drain it inside, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit, before attempting to drain it.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

All portables, alllll, you have to put unit in
window with a slight tilt, as the unit runs
it creates condensation that condensation
is the water leaking out the back it's supposed
to do that, I have seen people hook a hose up
an let it drain in a bucket.
even your car a/c leaks water

Water leak from Electrolux Kelvinator EPK09CRN2A portable air conditioner


You'll have to open it up and check for a displaced condensate collector. This may look like a funnel with a drain tube that is supposed to go to the tray

Has water leaking out of the back of the system?? Is it suppose to have a drain hose to it??


It has to have some way to get rid of condensation. There should be a hose fitting or nipple located on it somewhere.

My unit is leaking tons of water only when a/c is on for a while. It leaks out of base and I have to drain tank every day. Help!!!


It is supposed to "leak" water into it's reservoir and it needs to be dumped when it gets full. That water is the humidity that the a/c is pulling form the air inside your home. As long as it's going into the reservoir and not leaking onto your floor then it is working properly.

Leaking water


mcdevito75 here, The portion of the a/c unit that goes outside the window is the evaporator and suppose to leak water, check the drain hole in the unit floor on the outside portion of the unit, reach this drain hole thru another window or have your local a/c repair shop look at it, they come to the house.

Leaking


Please check the water container for leaks. Normally,
it does not leak, since the water is supposed to evapo-
rate due to compressor heat. The water that the aircon produces goes to a containing pond near the compressor. So that if there is a leak, it emanate from
this area. May this tip help you.

Remove the plug and tilt the AC slightly downward on the outside so the water will flow outside where it is supposed to go. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Mothers AC unit


That has nothing to do with the water. Sounds to me like it needs cleanning, (the water is not drainning toward the back of the unit) ,,(dirty filter, which its trying to **** air anywhere it can even thru the drain hole, or not enough slope, leanning toward the back so gravity can flow the water to the back of the coil! Thank you-very-much!
