Check the drain hole located on the outside rear panel appx. 3/4" above the bottom of the units bottom plate to make sure it's not plugged with outside debris,if so depending how badly it's plugged you may be able to unplug the unit and rat out the drain hole with a wire rod carefully so as not to puncture anything inside the case,if not you may need to remove the entire cover and hose out debris

Where is drain plug


Hello,
Usually on a window AC there is no drain plug. It relies on the tilt of the of the AC. The AC should be installed with a slight rear tilt so the water flows to the rear to where there should be two factory drain holes. Besure to get proper drainage otherwise the fan will pick up water and blow it into you house and cause humidity. I have also drill a hole on the lowest location on the bottom of the chassis to help drain it seven better. Your AC depending on where you live and how humid it is will collect more water on a humid day than a dry day and also the effenciancy will be worse on a humid day.

Water is spitting out of vents where is the drain pump on ac ?


David, there is no drain pump on your AC. There is a drain hole in the drip pan near the rear of the unit.
It is probably clogged. Another reason for your trouble is that the rear of the unit may not have the proper downward tilt. The rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2" downward tilt. This allows the water to flow freely to the rear drip pan drain hole.

Find the drain hole can be a challenge, as the clog can blend in with the hole. Once you find it, a pipe cleaner works well to clear the clog.

Hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

Portable haier air conditioner drainage. Cannot find drain hole and unable to tilt ac. Water is building up in the bottom of unit.


Here is a thought, received by me from a AC mechanic recently. Window ACs no longer actually drain concensate. Rather, the water is caught in a pan with the idea it will evaporate back into the outside air. The reason for this is the dripping water frequently resulted in the growth of algae below the unit resulting is unsightly stains and sometimes, slippery conditions. Evidently, there were a lot of complaints about being 'dripped on' also. So, AC manufacturers don't put drain holes in the bottom any more. If the pan over fills, it will spill out of many makes. If you want yours to drain, put a hole in the bottom.

Like I said, just a thought.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Window air conditioner is spitting water


Hello, usually a window AC will spit water if the unit is not tilted back or if the drain is backed up, if the unit is level try tilting it back it the window somewhat. Also, if the unit does have a drain make sure it is not blocked.

Making a noise and spitting water inside


your ac unit may not be installed properly, it needs a 1/4 inch tilt to allow water to drain properly outside. Also make sure your drain plug is open to allow the water to drain out.

Water leaks out all over the floor from the window air conditioner


you need to make sure of two things.

1) the AC is 'tilted backwards' just a little bit - to allow the water (condensate water from the evap coil) to drip from the bottom of the AC - out the 'condensate drain hole' - sometimes into a drain hose (usually rubber) or just through the hole to somewhere outside where it doesn't hurt anything.

2) make sure the - condensate drain hole, and drain hose - (if one is used) is clear and not clogged up - to allow the condensate water to drain.

hope this helps

Water does not drain from my Amana quiet zone AC. It builds up inside, then causes rusty looking sedement to blow into my house. How/where is the water supposed to drain to the outside? Thank you, Bobbi


If this is a window unit it has to tilt a little to the back(outside) for the water to drain off the bottom back side. I am suspecting the unit is setting tilted toward the room a little. Look at that first. Hope I was of help to you!! Good luck!!

Frigidaire thru-wall AC drips water when AC is on


The drain line is clogged.You will have to remove it again,open it up and access the drain line and clean it out.
It will be on the right or left corner of the evaporator coil(inside coil).
You will probably have to take it outside and use a garden hose the spray water into the drain until it runs freely.
When you reinstall it tilt it 1/2 inch to the rear.
