With my Maytag window unit, I just unscrewed everything on the casing until the front part could be popped out/unclipped then cleaned out the debris with an air compressor.

Water on floor from ac unit


Hi John,

First, water from an A/C unit is normal, and is created when warm, moist air is passed over a cold surface (like a glass of cold water sweats sitting in a warm room). This is called condensation.

Solve the issue by making sure the unit is tilted slightly back - towards the outside. This allows the condensation that drips off the cold coil will land on the bottom of the case and roll towards the rear - which is outside.

Once it is tilted back, inspect the underside of the outside portion of the unit. You should find several openings designed to allow the water to drain out and fall to the ground. Over time, these holes can become clogged with dust, dirt, spiders, etc. Simply insert a small screwdriver into the hole(s) - just enough to clear the obstruction.

If the unit is draining water out the back to the outdoors AND also inside, water can not drain fast enough from the A/C. You may not have cleared all the openings outside and / or not have provided enough of an angle to the tilt. Locate and clear the additional openings and make the tilt adjustments as needed.

Make sure the filter is clean! A dirty filter can cause the A/C to eventually ice up - providing only partial cooling. When the unit is shut off, the ice will rapidly melt and may do so faster than the water can drain outside - leaving puddles on your floor again.

I hope this helps!

Model: KFR-32GW/Ac Will not stop leaking water from the front of the unit. Coils have no ice. Shut off unit for 30 min the leaking stops but resumes when AC is turned back on.


Possible one of two problems. first make sure the unit is tilted away from the inside slightly. Second there are very small drains that let water flow from the front coil to the rear of the ac if the unit has been dirty it can plug these holes. You can find the holes by pulling the ac out or just remove it and use a hose to clean it. You can buy coil cleaner at a hardware store just follow the directions.

Some discharge coil in window ac effectiveness is reduced.what mi


Clean the air filter. It can be removed and ran under water. If the coils are dirty take the window unit out side, remove the cover and house out the coils. Be careful and try not to get a lot of water into the switches. Make sure it's dried out really good before plugging it back in. The number one problem for A\C units is dirt.

My portable a/c continues to leak water from the bottom when in use. I have a hose attached to the spout in the back, but it still leaves a puddle and almost nothing drains out the back. It's a sunbeam...


It sound like the coil inside could be dirty. I have had the same problem with air handlers, when the coil is dirty or the filter is dirty it creates a back pressure and causes the condensation to drip off away from the condensation pan. Try accessing the coil on the inside see if it is dirty, if it is clean it lightly with soapy water and a brush and be carefull not to bend the fins on the coil. If it is clean double check the condensation hose and inlet for the hose for foreign matter.

I do not think it is as efficient as it was when purchased and I feel that sometimes it is not working when other times it is


How old is the unit? RV Air Conditioners usually do not deteriorate over time. What happens is they get dirty and when not cleaned on a regular basis, do not work well. If you get up on the roof and remove the shroud from the unit, you can inspect the condenser coils. They are the fins on the back of the AC.

Take a water hose and gently rinse the coils out with water. Do not use too high of pressure as this may damage the coils. Continue rinsing the coils until the water flowing through them is clear. Once you are done, replace the shroud and turn the AC back on.

Doing this procedure at least once a year will greatly increase the efficiency of your unit and prolong its lifespan.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

New AC unit mist


It sounds like the unit is either level or tilted down in the front, not allowing the water to run to the back of the ac and the blower wheel is picking the water up and blowing it into the room.
You need to put a level on it and lower the back of the ac so the water the coil removes can run to the back of the unit and that should solve your problem.

Water leakage from internal unit of split AC


Draim pans do get dirty and partialy block drain pan. If possible take a shop vac and gently **** out the drain line. This will pull the restriction out of the line and help clean drain pan. Rusty

Sounds to me like it needs cleanning, (the water is not drainning toward the back of the unit) ,,(dirty filter, which its trying to **** air anywhere it can even thru the drain hole, or not enough slope, leanning toward the back so gravity can flow the water to the back of the coil! Thank you-very-much!

Water in the Unit


Most of the AC Unit lately are not made to drain. So when you have water collecting inside the unit, the condenser and the evaporator is suppose to help dissolve the water.
When water is collecting inside the appliance like that, it is either because the ac unit is not installed correctly or you live in a high humid area.
