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.

Why does drivers side floor stay wet


You don't way what type of vehicle you are driving. I will assume it has a sun or moon roof. Most of these have drain lines that run down inside the driver's side door pillar and exit through the floor pan onto the ground. Over time, these drain hoses dry out and shrink, often retracting into the drivers side kick panel. Then, all the rain water that drains from the sunroof will leak out onto the drivers side floor. If that is the case, you will need to remove the drivers side kick panel and repair or replace the drain line and reroute it through the exit hole in the floor pan.

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 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

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.

When I turn of the airconditioner, the water does not drain outside it drains on the floor. Where do I find the drain plug under the car?


if you look back on the firewall directly behind where the blower motor is located then you should see a tube extending down towards the ground. This is the evaporator drain tube.
