The drain is under the bottom rear. You can **** it out from out
side or you probably need to remove the front and pull out the a/c
with the handles at bottom of unit. Then you can take it outside and wash out the sludge in the bottom .
Don't forget to clean both coils with a coil cleaner and water hose.
You can buy the coil cleaner at your local appliance parts store.
Don't forget to lean the unit towards the back for good drainage.

Does it come with a drain pug to let water out of unit


no -- there is no drain plug for air conditioners
If you have a problem with water dripping inside the house --down the wall --there is a drain at the bottom of the evaporator ( inside section) that drains water outside
that becomes blocked with gunk and dust from the room and has to be cleared occasionally.

Why does my split ac unit leak inside the house?


This happens when the drain pipe is too high, or kinked. The pipe must be lower then the drain pan in order for the water to drain. This is a common problem.

1999 isuzu amigo water in passenger and driver floorboard no antifreeze smell at all.


this sounds like a build up of condensation (water) possibly in your ac/heat ducting or possibly in the plastic casings under the dash that house some of the heating and cooling components. cold ac components close to warm or hot heating components will lead to water build up this is why there should be a drain tube for the plastic housing under the dash board that leads to the outside of the vehicle. this drain tube may be clogged or may be disconnected and not draining to the outside but instead its allowing the water to fall into the area under your dash board. FYI you can sometimes see these drain tubes drip water on cars that use their air conditioner a lot, it looks like the car is leaking water from the bottom but it's just the water draining away from cool air conditioner lines on a hot day and draining properly to the outside of the car and not on the floor inside.

Water leaking inward


There should be a drip tray that catches all the condensation and funnels it out the back. Check for holes, cracks or a plugged drain hole.

Carpet wet under window air con.


The air conditioner needs to be "tilted" or "pitched" to the rear. By this I mean the back (outside) should be slightly lower than the front (inside). This will allow the water to run toward the back of the unit, and drip on the ground instead of inside the house - on the floor. The A/C unit must not be level or tilted into the room (front even with or lower than the rear).

This water is the result of condensation that is created when the warm room air is drawn through the much cooler coil & fins inside the unit and is completely normal. The more humid the air inside is, the more condensation will form, and drain away.

Good luck!

Water is leaking inside the house


The drain that should be carrying the condensate water outside is stopped up. Compressed air works well to clear the drain.

TCL model tac 24chs/k air conditioner is leaking from the


You will want to remove the panel in front of the air handler, usually a few 5/16 screws.
Once open then with a flashlight look down inside where the water collects in the condensate drain pan.
Verify that the pan is not full of water or algae build up.
If it is, then attach a wet vac to your drain outside and while it is pulling on the drain line spray some water inside till it is fully clean.
If it is not full of water then check the pvc pipes that are attached to the drain pan, they may have came loose and may need to be teflon taped and reconnected to the pan. Also verify there are no cracks in the pan.
Lastly inspect the bottom of the evaporator coil (Not the top) pull out the filter and make sure the coil is clean or water could drip down past the pan into your dwelling. Make sure as well that the insulation on your panel that covers the unit is intact and not worn away.

Good Luck!

Water leaks in the house from under the unit.There is a drain pipe that leads to the outside but we dont know if that pipe gets clogged or needs service.


Open up the inside unit pannel where the drain pipe is and you'll see a drain pan where the condensation water runs out to the drain , clean the drain pan and the hole and then with air pressure from an air compressor blow the drain from inside to outside and go outside the house where the drain discharged and you'll see the clogh that came out from the drain . To keep the drain clean , pour a cup of bleach or clorox every 3 or 4 months through the drain and in the drain pan.
