SOURCE: external water tank
Dear ziba1--posted the same problem two days ago and it doesn't appear to be on the site yet. Anyway, picked away at this again today (literally took the machine apart) and found the problem to be a clog in the drainage system. This explains why your external tank will not fill and why there is a leak--the drip tray under the compressor is not draining due to the clog in the drainage system. I fixed this simply by taking a narrow device and gently scraping out the drain hole of the drip tray (which is located just below the compressor...the compressor is located on the same side as your air filter). After successfully cleaning out this drain, I proceeded to flush the water out thoroughly with water. Give it a try--worked for me. I had all but given up and had already set up an appointment to have it serviced. Cheers

SOURCE: Water in the Unit
Most of the AC Unit lately are not made to drain. So when you have water collecting inside the unit, the condenser and the evaporator is suppose to help dissolve the water.
When water is collecting inside the appliance like that, it is either because the ac unit is not installed correctly or you live in a high humid area.

The water has to be draining out constantly or the pan and finally the unit will overflow.
If it has age on it take out and take to car wash and wash inside and outside coils. Remove tops on coils so you can see whats going on while washing.

Try a lower fan speed, sometimes the velocity of the fan combined with high humidity lifts the moisture off the fins instead of allowing the water to properly drop to the pan.
