Hi,
Many newer units are made to retain the water a splash it onto the condenser coil...
you can drill a hole if the noise bothers you...

How can I clear a blockage in the water drain tube ?


Alastair Stuart ... hello,

Model, make... makes for better answers!

Most home use refrigerator (plastic) pans will simply pull out the front with a little gentle maneuvering... for cleaning purposes.

Our little MARVEL is more industrial... it has a small metal pan
and needs to be unbolted before it will come out... so in general yes...

Just keep in mind despite their size and weight
most refrigerators are pretty fragile.

I would try lots of warm soapy water and even air duster cans (compressed air)... before doing any serious surgery from the south end.

Dried milk, ice cream, pudding.... food can form a pretty good PLUG.

Good lick... stuck drains are no fun!

Fir your viewing pleasure...

My Kenmore window ac unit cools ok but makes a clicking/clacking sound while it runs. The cooling fan turns properly and it drains outside but has started to drain a little inside-it is angled to drain...


From everything you described, it sounds like more water than usual is collecting in the drip fan. Despite the unit draining out the rear drain hole. Check the drain hole to make sure it is totally clear and not partially clogged. A pipe cleaner works well to do this. Be sure to turn the unit OFF & unplug it, before working on it.

Hope this helped you and tanks for choosing FixYa.

Water collected in the tray under the air handler. The float turned unit off. Drained water and AC returned. What caused the water to collect in the catch tray. Is there a clog in the drain pipe?


Yes there is a clog in the drain, you can try a cloth hanger or a small drain auger, slug builds up and clog the drain it only takes a little to clog the flow and can easily be unclogged

Water inlet


It sounds like there is either a kink in your drain hose or your garbage disposal is blocked up where the dishwasher drain is connected

Kenmore AC 58067081. Have water draining out front. Think it's clogged, but where are the drain holes. Nothing in manual... I've taken off the front grill, and shop vac'd up the water sitting in the bottom...


If you can slide the unit out, there is a drain tube or drain hole from the front tray under the coil that directs the water into the rear of the unit to drain out the hole. That tube needs to be blown out or flushed. It's most likley plugged. You only need to add the drain pipe if you want to direct the drain water away from where it drips now.

My ac window unit does not seem to have any obvious drain hole or plug


DO NOT attempt to create a drain. As long as a window A/C unit is installed properly, (angled slightly down toward the rear) it will drain excess water over the rear lower lip of the unit should it get that high. Many models use some of the collected water/condensation. It gets lifted up by the fan blades to cool the coil.

Drain Hole for Frigidaire Window Air Conditioner


Leave it alone. DO NOT attempt to create a drain. As long as a window A/C unit is installed properly, (angled slightly down toward the rear) it will drain excess water over the rear lower lip of the unit should it get that high.
