Hi,
They usually carry some water in the pan andd the hole will be in one of the outside corners... they can be a bugger to find sometimes and I have drilled new ones already... just make sure not to drill the coil... :-)


Here is a tip about trouble shooting your air conditioner...

I have an SA12059 Windchaser portable a/c. After using it and rolling it around, the top condensate tank drips lots of water. I tried to drain the bottom tank via the hose, but the top tank doesn't seem...


There is not actually a top tank, just a drip tray with little drain holes that become easily clogged. After removing the rear cover of the unit and cleaning thoroughly, you can use a can of air (like the ones to dust pc's) wth the little straw attachment to try to clear te clogged drain holes in the tray below the evaporator. If your unit froze up condensate may have overflowed into the fan area. Let the unit defrost, and run it in fan mode for awhile to dry this moisture out.

I recently noticed that my GE window airconditioner has been leaking on the inside of my window. It has cause my new wooden windsill to turn black from the condensation dripping onto the sill. I did not...


Actually, you may have two issues. The drain hole may be clogged and the rear of the unit may not have enough downward tilt, to allow the water to flow to the rear of the drip pan and ultimately out thru the drain hole. The general rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2" rear downward tilt.

As far as the drain hole is concerned, it can be hard to find at times. Because the clog will often times blend in the drain hole. Patience & persistence are required in locating it. A pipe cleaner works well to clear the clog.

Troubleshooting the above should help to solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My GE window unit air conditioner isn't blowing out very cool air,and it spits what


From what you have described, it sounds like the drip pan under the unit is full of water. This can be caused by the unit not being installed properly in the window. It must have 1/4' to 1/2" downward tilt at the rear. This allows the water in the drip pan, to flow to the rear and drain away thru the drain hole. Also, the drain hole may be clogged and needs to be cleared. The drain hole can be a challenge to find sometimes, as the clog can blend in with the hole. Be patient and persistent when looking for the drain hole. A pipe cleaner can be used to clear it.

I hope this helps and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My window air conditoner is leaking water inside and what can I do to prevent that?


Make sure the unit is tilted down at the rear at least 1/4" to 1/2" and that the drain hole in the drain pan, under the rear of the unit is not clogged. The drain hole can be hard to find, as clogs blend in with hole. So, be persistent in looking for it.

Hope this helped you Elaine. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Water inside unit, you can hear it when running. I know it's suppose to be normal in high humidity, but the unit was making a loud noise the other night so I had to turn it off. sounded like the fan


The unit is not draining properly. Make sure it is leaning back in the window. If you put a level on the top of the unit, it should be leaning back away from the window about a half bubble. If it still doesn't drain after this, the drain may be stopped up. The drain will either be in the bottom of the unit or on the back. If you try to clean the drain hole be careful not to use anything that will poke a hope in the rear coil. You can use compressed air.

My ge window air conditioner model AET05LJG1 does not drain the water that condenses. The fan sloshes the water.


Hi,
On many of the newer air conditioners they intentionally keep some water in there so that it splashes onto the condenser coil and helps to cool it....while this may work well it also creates more noise....so I often recommend to drill a drain hole in the back corner...jus drill down from the top...drilling up from the bottom is a great way to drill right through the coil....

My haier a/c window unit is spitting water through the vent


check the filter located behind the front panel it usually snaps out also make sure the drain holes on the out side bottom of unit are not stopped up and that the unit is leaned back slightly for drainage freezing is a sign of low air flow or low on freon the coil actually gets colder when freon starts to leak out hope this helps with your problem

Leak repair Samsung window air conditioner


Modern window units intentionally do not allow the water to drain directly, they want the fan blade to sling the water on to the condensor (the coil that is outside) to aid in cooling actually helps the unit cool better in high outside temps, it also evaporates it this way, depending on where the hole was drilled it may be able to be repaired, if it was just a copper tube it will be less expensive than replacing the whole coil. Since its a relative inexpensive unit anyway the labor and freon may be more than its worth. Lesson learned dont drill a hole in the base it lowers it's efficiency and can lead to a punctured freon line.

GE Portable Airconditioner - Model APN10AA Serial # GG509122


Ours was leaking water. After taking the covers off,cleaning it,and draining all the water out, I started getting the same problem with the light coming on every 7 minutes. I actually added some water to the system till it was too full and then drained it out through the plug. The light still came on every 7 minutes until I turned the unit off and then unplugged it for a few minutes. I plugged it back in, turned it on and reset the temperature. It seemed to reset itself and kept running normally. BB
