There is no valve. The water condensate from the cooling coil flows toward the back of the A/C where it is evaporated or drained. Tilt the A/C a little toward the back and see if that helps speed up the drainage.

I have a "Hitachi split type air conditioner model RAS- 3098U", and its started leaking today from the right side. I didn't install it and I can't figure out how to remove the front cover to l


water is coming from evaporator drain pan most likely. lots of humidity right now and 1st thing your ac is going to do is remove this from air. most likely cause would be condensation line clogged or if you have condensate pump, then it also could be cause. to remove cover usually you have to remove air filters look for any screws and possibly front louvers pull down. this usually does not give you access to drain pan. unit usually needs to be removed from wall plate and this might involve refrigerant lines being removed, and for that my friend you defiantly want a qualified professional.

I have small window air conditioner from golstar and its making bubbleing sounds in the back from water should i take black rubber water seal from back and release extra water it is very humid today or...


Hi there, if it is building condensation up and making that noise do to the humidity, it will not hurt the unit to remove the seal to drain it at all. I have had people go as far as drilling a few holes to let it drain, no harm will come to your unit, trust me.

Free standing Convair Supercool leaks like a sieve! We have no manual. Does the small black hose pipe drain the water from the white pipe at the bottom rear of the unit [ where most of the water is coming...


The water is being generated from humidity inside the air. The air conditioner also acts as a dehumidifier. The black line is the drain. The drain line needs to go to an outside line or to a container to collect the condensated water. With low humidity levels, the water will evaporate back into the air. With high humidity, the water is removed from the air at a higher volume than can evaporate back into the air.

My air conditioner is leaking from the front of it


Are the three drain plugs tightened?

If you're stumped, try to drain the inside tanks and see what happens: Unscrew the three drain valves at the back, and put a pan to catch any water (only a few cups). Let us know what happens.

How to stop a leak


the water leak is not a big concern -other than the mess it causes, but as to the AC's operational status it is supposed to draw water/humidity from the 'cooling space' so - it's still doing it's job (I'm assuming it's cooling too).

As to the water - I would check the drain to be sure it's not clogged up - which is usually the problem. If the drain is clear and the AC is draining (to the outside) properly - I would then check and make sure the AC is tilted backwards out the window.

good luck!

Leaks water from back


this is not a water leak ! it is the humidity in the room which collects as water and drains out at the back.keep a bucket underneath or attach a drain pipe to the outlet .

Leaking water


Very common problem with these systems. This depends on humidity in the air. Some systems have a setting that you can turn off the dehumidifier. The downside to this is it doesn't cool quite as well as humididty absords heat. The drain pan in your system is probably overflowing. You have a couple options, you could "hard drain" it to outdoors, empty the drainpan regulary, or change the air settings (this may not solve completely if you live in a humid area).

Goldstar 10000 blows water out front


Two possible problems.
1. High humidity in the space being cooled
2. Drain line that runs from the front (where the water is blowing out) to the back where it is sent to evaporate. Clean out the drain line and condensate pan under the fins where the water is blowing out.

Leak in the front/middle of the undercarriage


If the leak is under the passenger side, about midway back (right under the firewal, to be exact), there is a line that does indeed drain water. This is the condensate drain for the air conditioner. As the AC operates, it removes humidity from the cabin area. This humidity condenses into water, and collects at the bottom of the heater/AC box, and then is drained out onto the street, via a rubber tube, thru the firewall. This is a normal condition, much like the AC unit in your home, it too has a condensate drain line. Nothing to worry about.
NOTE: If you run the AC with the "FRESH mode" active, as opposed to the "RECIRC" mode, you will get MORE water draining out under the car, as the AC is working against fresh air entering the cabin/more humidity... Hope this helps. Please feel free to comment back if you have further questions, and Thanks for choosing FixYa.
