Your "P" trap is plugged on your condensate line, is one possible problem. You will need to take the line off and clean the pipe then add evaporator drain tabs to your coils drain pan.

How do you drain the bucket for a delonghi nf90 airconditioner. I have it set on just airconditioning which the manual says it requires no draining, but when I checked the valve cap there was a lot of...


You can either drain it into a shallow sided pan or bowl that is capable of holding up to a quart of water. The other option is to roll it to a floor drain (if you have one) or outside and drain it there.

I hope this was of help. Thank you for choosing FixYa.

I would like a manual for this portable airconditioner. I need to llnow if I neede to drain the water from this unit?


Since you didn't mention who the manufacturer is and the model number, it makes it a little difficult. But, most all portable AC units drain the same way. There's a drain plug on the back of the unit, just above floor level. It may have a door cover over it, so you will have to remove it first, to access the drain plug.

There are 2 ways to drain the unit. Use a shallow sided pan, capable of holding 1 quart of water or roll the unit to a floor drain or outside, before removing the drain plug. The Drain Plug screws out. If you drain theunit into a pan, turn the unit OFF & Unplug it first.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I bougth an Uberhaus Airconditioner R410A. It is draining out onto the carpet, while I use the airconditioner, We hadn't attached the drainage tube! Is this supposed to be constantly drainned or does...


If this is the 3-in-1 air conditioner, then you have two options:
1- do you see two drain outlets on the back? one is at the very bottom and has a removable plug and the second should be about half way down also with a removable plug. This air conditioner has a small non-removable tank that will fill up and a red light on the panel will light up and the machine will switch to FAN mode when full. Then you have to roll the machine to a drain and unplug the bottom plug to let it drain out. Not resonable.Probably good for a basement with a drain in the floor, but not on the main floor or 2nd storey floor.

2nd method is to unplug the top drain (Keep the bottom drain plugged) , attach the plastic hose that the machine came with to this drain, find a bucket that is at the same height or below the top drain and let the water drain into the bucket. Then when it gets about 3/4 of the way full, empty the bucket.This way the airconditioner mode and the humidifier mode will work continously.
This is the way this type of air conditioner is made.

Hope that helps

My portoable ac is leaking on the floor . am i suppose to have a hose connected to the drain on the bottom in the back of the unit. please explain how i am suppose to drain my machine


a hose is only used for continued drainage in to a floor drain or sump. With out he hose, it's supposed to have a screw in plug to keep the water from flowing onto the floor. Then you would drain it into a low sided container that can hold at least 1 quart of water. Normally, the unit should warn you when it needs draining.

Hope this helped you.

Water collecting on driver's side floor of my 2002 mitsubishi gallant


If your car is using / loosing water.... or the air smell sweet in the car vents then heater core is leaking. If your not loosing water from the radiator and doee not smell like that sweet anti-freeze smell then your airconditioner evaporator drain is clogged. You can attempt to clear the evaporator drain by locating the drain outlet and shoving a small soild stranded wire up through the drain vent. Make sure you have the blower motor and the air-conditioner on when trying to clear the evaporator drain. Be careful NOT to shove the solid strand wire into the evaporator coil while trying to clear the drain. The only other option is to remove the AC system evaporator lower cover and clear the drain which takes hours and hours of work.

When the airconditioner is on cool.Water comes from the airconditioner inside and dripping on the floor.


If it's a car air conditioner, your condensate drain line is clogged. If it's a home window unit, it needs to be tilted outward more. The downward tilt should be no less than 1/4" per foot. If your unit is 18" from the window to the back of the unit, the back should be 3/8" lower that at the window....minimum.

My roof airconditioner leaks drain water on the floor.


make sure the drain is not plugged and that condensation can get under the cooling coil to the drain pan otherwise it may be condensation forming on the grill, make sure the filters and coil are clean and you are moving lots of air.

Licking water on my Royal Sovereign 1000 es


There is a little hole about one inch above the the drain tube and out of it should come a rubber strap connected to a plug for the drain tube. On the far left of the control panel is a diagram of a bucket under a water drop, just below is an led that comes on when the water tank is full and needs to be emptied. I just roll mine out on the porch and pull the plug. Also, when the tank is full the unit should shut off.
