Not draining I have a problem where the ac does not drain out of the back and there isno visible drain hole anywhere. When I opened up the front the coils had a n ice block on them and all the water drained out of the front. Where is the drain? If it is plugged, how do you unplug it?

    We are also having the problem of the unit not draining. Supposedly the water is supposed to evaporate. We've installed it properly and at an angle. Any suggestions out there?

When i run the ac water ,from the front? Its a FAC106P1A the back hole is draining ok?

Glad to hear the drain hole is clear and functioning as it should. Now, all you need to do is adjust the downward tilt at the rear of the unit to 1/4" to 1/2". That way the water will flow to the back and drain, before it completely fills up and water blows out the front.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I cannot find a drain hole and the window AC fills with water and then drains inwards. WHen I have large tilt to the back and take the ac out of the window, I get covered in water that has been sitting in...

Part of the problem may be, that you don't maintain enough tilt down on the back of the unit. 1/4" to 1/2" is generally enough to drain the water to the rear of the drain pan. Some drain pans have a hole near the rear of the drain pan. They can be hard to find, if they're clogged, because the clog blends in with the drain pan. Others may have a **** in the corner of the drain pan, rather that a hole.

If you are unable to find the drain hole to unclog it and you're feeling really lucky, you can always drill a 1/8" hole in the rear corner of the pan and create a new one. However, the unit must be unplugged and the pan must be almost dry, before attempting this. In addition, you must be extremely careful when drilling this hole, so as not to pierce any of the mechanical parts above it. In other words, you must be in total control of the drill.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Water coming out of front of unit, thru vents leaking on floor

Darlene, if this is a window or thru the wall unit, the leaking is usually caused by two things:

1. The drain pan under the unit has a drain hole (in the rear outside part of the unit) that is clogged.
2. The AC unit is not tilted down at the rear 1/4" to 1/2", so that water will drain to the outside drain hole.

Be prudent when you look for the drain hole in the drain pan. As the clog can blend in with the drain hole, making it difficult to see.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

On my LG window AC Md. LWHD1009R, I cannot find a drain hole to let the water out. The back bottom of the pan was filled water containing a rusty sludge, but the heat exchanger coils are aluminum, so it...

usually in the middle underside of the window units is a hole that water drains out of, you can always drill new holes in order to make it drain, Good Luck Tim

I drilled a hole in the back of the ac for drainage, but, there is water being driven out in the front of the unit by the fan.

The drain hole from the front to the back is plugged or the unit needs to be tilted more toward the outside.

My ac is spitting out water in the front and making a loud noise

Your noise is probably your fan hitting water. First try to tilt the ac to slant to the outside. If this is done water should drain to the outside if not your drain hole is blocked from the front to the back you can see this if you remove the unit and look at the front coil housing you will see a very small weep hole clean it out and use a water hose to clean the front coil and the back coil. good luck

My ac throws water back into the house when running to long, water builds and does not leak out of unit,do i need to drill a hole on the bottom of unit and if so where is compressor so i dont puncture it.

sounds like your condensate drain is stopping up or not draining properly. I would check and make sure the unit's drain is open and water is draining.

Also it's possible that the AC itself needs to be tilted (just slightly back in order for the water to drain better. Sometimes people will make sure the unit is installed perfectly level for cosmetic purposes not realizing that the water needs to drain out the back of the AC.

good luck!

I have samsung window AC, Water is not drain from my window ac but i am getting the cooling well .. but water stored inside the machine if it make any problem in future? bottom of the machine have one hole...

If you continue to operate your AC with the drain 'closed up' it will eventually :"run over" and probally into the house.

The drain hole should be open so your 'condensate water' can drain to an outside location.

Water is very bad for AC compressors - your service tech doesn't have a clue as to what he's talking about.

good luck!

Kenmore AC 58067081. Have water draining out front. Think it's clogged, but where are the drain holes. Nothing in manual... I've taken off the front grill, and shop vac'd up the water sitting in the bottom...

If you can slide the unit out, there is a drain tube or drain hole from the front tray under the coil that directs the water into the rear of the unit to drain out the hole. That tube needs to be blown out or flushed. It's most likley plugged. You only need to add the drain pipe if you want to direct the drain water away from where it drips now.

Thank you-very-much!
