Re: aw1291l a/c unit
1. Some A/C's have a plug that needs to be removed from the outside coil.
2. A/C must be tilted so that water runs toward the outside coil.
Making sure of these 2 issues should help. If not, you may have a seiously plugged up condensor coil and need to call a technician.
a 6ya Repairman can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I got this tip from this site yesterday when my Haeir A/C window unit began spitting water. Look for either a hole on the bottom edge of unit or a horizontal **** on bottom of unit it will either be in the front or back, take a toothpick or if your A/C is in a window unit and your target is on outside, take a long broom, bristle end up and brush out between window ledge and unit, any dirt that may have collected there. This will unclog the hole(s). You should also try to drain any water collected, out of unit. Turn A/C back on, it may do the same thing for about 15 minutes, but the problem should go away. Remember, you may not be actually able to see the hole or ****, but IT IS THERE. Make sure you brush it as thoroughly as you can. It worked for me. Thanks FixYa!!!
ooh my this might seem a terrible thing but is actually quite comon to happen on a unit that has a clogged drain tube , you see theres a system (pan) inside that collects water from the condenser coils , and if this pan for what ever reason cant drain the pan backs up and finnaly the water level reaches the fan and yup ^$^ Hits the fan !!!! and out it goes with the air !! this pan is seperate from the bucket that collects the water so your not likely to see it from outside , to resolve it this units needs to be completly cleaned in/out
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.
if drain hole is blocked ice will build up at back of unit. instead of moisture draining out it will freeze.manually defrost unit(no hot water) clean out drain hole with fine wire on small cloth dipped in clorine bleach.this will kill any nasties and inhibit regrowth.
Clean the unti - and do not add salt. I live in a major hard water city...and was amazed at how much dirt the tank collected. I tried adding salt to to stop the spitting, which did make a lot more steam, but did NOT stop teh water spit. I also noticed, with salt added, water in tank would only last 4-6 hours, not the 18-24 hours it should. I just figured it out, and now mine works great again, and does not spit. I cleaned the water tank throughly, several rinses, then wiped out entire inside. If you want it to work like new, you have to keep your tank as clean as new. I am going to start filtering my water that I put in with a double pantyhose I made simply so there no more dirt ~ a clean tank will fix the problem, it did mine :)
