Air conditioners MUST be tilted to drain. If not, they will drain into the room. Try shimming up the inside of the window sill with a few thin boards. The ice problem is either because it can't drain or, it is too small for the area being cooled.

The water is being generated from humidity inside the air. The air conditioner also acts as a dehumidifier. The black line is the drain. The drain line needs to go to an outside line or to a container to collect the condensated water. With low humidity levels, the water will evaporate back into the air. With high humidity, the water is removed from the air at a higher volume than can evaporate back into the air.

Water leaks out all over the floor from the window air conditioner


you need to make sure of two things.

1) the AC is 'tilted backwards' just a little bit - to allow the water (condensate water from the evap coil) to drip from the bottom of the AC - out the 'condensate drain hole' - sometimes into a drain hose (usually rubber) or just through the hole to somewhere outside where it doesn't hurt anything.

2) make sure the - condensate drain hole, and drain hose - (if one is used) is clear and not clogged up - to allow the condensate water to drain.

hope this helps

Condensation leaks out front of unit into the house.


Hi, no don't drill holes in bottom tray, to make drain, that's design, you need to keep water there, the fan usually pick up water(moisture) and add to your air inside your home, otherwise the air in your home will become to dry, dry air will create static electricity all over your home, from your carpet to your clothes, you need to level your unit horizontally, put a spirit level, and you should have a slight pitch, from front to back, good luck.

My Air conditioner leaks water


All A/C units drain water and need a clear path to drain water.
If window unit the unit MUST lean to the outside so the condensation water can drain that direction and insure the drain hole is clear of debree.
If an indoor central a/c unit the drain must be clogged the unit is leaning away from drain or the pipe going to the drain is clogged somewhere as it exits house. Cant drain if doesn't have a clear path to do it's job. Doubt it's a problem with the brand.

Condensation causing water collection


Hi there!

Make sure the unit is level and not tilted forwards.Tilt back if anything.

There should be a drain hole at the back, but it may be clogged, or there may be an obstruction causing the water to build up.

In times of high humidity, water will condense on the cooling coils, and drip off. This is usually carted away by means of a tray flowing to an outside pipe.

One design uses a flinger to catch any water and throw it onto the evaporator coils - thus improving efficiency, but if there is anything touching the coils, like a feather etc, it will flow down that and leak.

Tip it back as the first action, then investigate if it doesn't drain.

Fujitsu wall mounted air conditioner leaks into the room


Make sure the unit is level, this is very important. Check for blocked drain tube, which runs from the bottom of the drain pan under the cold coil to the outside. Clear tube with a piece of coathanger wire, be gentle.
