Clogged drain condensation drain pipe. They use to recommend white vinegar for cleaning, but they now say even it can damage lines for being to strong. The sell a product Zest at home depot, it's like orange and environmentally safe made with oranges or something.

Anyways use that stuff.
I would first check the outside pipe for an obvious blockage like grass, dirt or dead animal. Then right by your indoor unit will be the start of the same pipe, if the leaking is there, then that's it, if it's somewhere else could be in the unit which you will need a repair man, nothing easy inside the main unit except lots of shocking things.

Open the pipe inside and try pooring some cleaner in , wait a bit then turn back on and see. If it's a bad clog, what I did was to take a long hose, run it in the house to the pipe. I put folds in the hose to do it alone, or have someone outside to yell to turn it on. Put the hose against the pipe inside flush as possible and that should force almost anything out. Be sure to have a couple towels ready cause it's nearly impossible to not spill some water doing it this way.

Why wouldn't water circulate through the radiator


You are spot on. Bad water pump. It is also probably the reason your timing belt was frayed. The water pumps of later model cars usually drip some through a "weep" hole in the bottom when they are going out as a kind of warning "Hey, you gotta get me a replacement soon!" But unless you live where no air conditioner is ever needed, or used, most people think it is the drippings from the AC. Get that pump replaced ASAP and when done, do a compression check on all your cylinders to make sure there was no head gasket damage from overheating. Good luck.

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.

Water Leaking


Dear Customer,
The likely reasons for a leaking AC are...
1) Improperly installed.
A window air conditioner must be slightly lower at the rear than the front. This allows the water being removed from the room to drain to the back of the machine. A difference of one inch is sufficient. This is always the first thing to check. Many are improperly installed in the haste to get relief from the heat. If installed too low at front the water will flow into the room rather than outside. If installed too low at rear, water can roll out front edges before has chance to exit towards rear drain.


  1. Icing up.
    Water being de-humidified can turn to ice if there are problems with the cooling system. There are many reasons for an air conditioner to produce ice. Remove front grille while machine is operating. If ice is present on the cooling coil you will probably need service. For more information see our other article: Why window Air Conditioners Ice up.


  1. Air leakage around air conditioner.
    If warm air is able to enter around the air conditioner it will encounter cooler, dryer air. When they meet condensation will occur. If water leaking from front of air conditioner inspect to see if dripping from body of machine, or water droplets clinging to front area. To test, operate machine for 30 minutes and then use flashlight to check under front edge of base. Small water droplets here indicate an air leakage problem. Add foam insulation to stop warm air from infiltrating.


  1. Drain hole blocked.
    Rear of air conditioner base has a drain hole or groove to allow water to escape. If becomes blocked water can back up. To test, operate machine for 30 minutes and then inspect if draining properly. If appears blocked use a small piece of wood to open drain hole at rear of metal base. CAUTION: Never be tempted to drill holes into the air conditioner body to relieve water pooling. Severe damage can result.


  1. Internal drains blocked.
    There are small passageways that allow water to drain from front of air conditioner to the rear. If they become blocked water will pool at front of machine and overflow onto floor. If this happens the air conditioner will require removal from window and servicing.


  1. Outside temperature too cold.
    This occurs at end of cooling season. If outside temperatures drops below 60 degrees Fahrenheit at night the cooling coil may ice up. If no leakage at bedtime but water in front of machine in morning, suspect this problem. If this problem suspected turn off machine before bedtime and restart as day warms. Alternately, operate machine at night with selector switch in ‘fan only’ position. This will circulate room air during night but not allow cooling.
Hope u find this useful. I'll be thankful if u could rate this. thank you.
