Ac unit is leaking water out the front into the house whats the reason

Be sure you have the air cond tilted back away from the house. If you have a level, set it on top of the air cond and make sure the unit is tilted back by a half bubble. If you still get water in the house, the drain is stopped up in the unit and you will have to take it out of the window and out of the case and wash it out good.

Where is the drain hole on goldstar window ac my ac keeps dripping water inside the house

Hello, make sure the unit is tilted toward the outside a bit, if it is level the condensate will collect in the front and start dripping inside the house. Also, if the unit has a drain make sure it is clean so the water can drain out properly.

How do you get the ac to stop leaking water inside the window?

The a/c could be slightly leaning toward the inside letting the water drip in or the drain hole which allows the water to drip outside could be stopped up. Find the hole and blow through it with compressed air to unstop it.

Water leaking inside house

Your problem is there is debris inside of the casing blocking the drain hole in the back of the unit.. Go outside and look under the unit and you will see several holes throughout. These holes allow the condensation to drain out from the bottom of the unit. The best way to clean the unit is to remove the unit from the sleeve take the unit outside and you can wash out the system with a water house as long as you make sure that you don't wet any of the fan motors. The metal thing you refer to is the evaporator coil. If you go to the home improvement store you can purchase a can of coil cleaner. This cleaner is sprayed into the coil at which time it foams up like shaving cream. Let it sit on the coils as directed on the can. Once the time has elapsed rinse the coils well remembering not to get any electrical parts wet (I suggest purchasing a pump up garden sprayer for this because it is easy to control where the water will go) After this is done let the unit sit until the water has disappated then reinstall into its sleeve. The dust by the fan can be removed with a brush and a vacuum (wet Vac). Good luck on repairs

Water leak from Goldstar GWHD 5000 window ac unit. No past problem in use over 8 months. Thanks.

ok what you need to do, get someone to pull the a/c out and clean it. it gets full of dust and it sticks to the coils the garden hose will clean it out. be sure to clean out the drain holes so the water will drain outside like it should. one more thing besure the a/c is tilting down to the outside so the water wont leak in your house. have a good day you can do ths.

GoldStar model GWHD5000

Make sure that the unit is properly mounted in the opening (I take it it's in a window) and that it is level or at least not tipping inward as in the outside being higher than the inside. If unsure about how to mount it properly, consult your owners manual. Your installation should be reasonably close to the illustrations.

Condensation question

Yes there is a hole in the rear underneath.  Make sure that it is not plugged.  The ac needs to be cleaned every year for good workmanship.  Make sure that the ac is tilted back allittle so the water or condensation will drain.  Sometimes I've seen one where it was tilted towards the inside of the house and the fan would pickup some of the water and put a mist in the house which is not good.  If We can be anymore help let us know and thankyou1
