It sounds like it could be low on refrigerant. without refrigerant it will be loud and it will not sweat. However it could be restriction in the refrigerant lines that will not allow the refrigerant to move. This will have the same symptoms. Both solutions sound like a job for a licensed technician.

I don't know what type of heller air con I have but for the second time now it's started dripping water inside does anyone know how I can fix it


The tube that drains water out of the drain pan is plugging up. You have to disassemble the AC unit cabinet to get inside to clean out the drain pan and drain tube. You might as well clean the evaporator and condenser coils too. Spray with Fantastik cleaner and rinse with water. Also put some oil into the small tube for the shaft on the fan motor. If no small tube, then put oil on the shaft where it enters the fan motor.

Aircondition wont turn fan


Make sure the set screw holding the blower wheel to the motor shaft is tight.
Try replacing the run capacitor for the fan motor if that does not do it. (If the motor shaft turns and the wheel turns, but squeels real loud, then replace the wheel if the set screw is tight.)

Very loud when fan is running


This is likely caused by a faulty blower motor bearings, or the fan has something in it or it could possibly have broken. Shut down power to unit, remove cover and inspect the fan shaft, blades, and spin it. it should freely spin. If it hangs up you likely have a bad blower motor.

Condensation buildup


Make sure the unit tilts towards the outside. If it's installed level or tilted toward front it will not drain properly.

It seems it's collecting water in the tray and blowing it out through the top vent, dripping from the bottom inside the house and is making a sound constantly like the fan is hitting water as it blows.


AC units do take the humidity out of the air and water collects in the bottom. The unit should be tilted slightly downward on the outside so that the water runs outrside. Make sure the drain holes are clear. The pinging noise is common, the fan is hitting drops of water, nothing to be concerned about

Drain Hole for Frigidaire Window Air Conditioner


Leave it alone. DO NOT attempt to create a drain. As long as a window A/C unit is installed properly, (angled slightly down toward the rear) it will drain excess water over the rear lower lip of the unit should it get that high. Many models use some of the collected water/condensation. It gets lifted up by the fan blades to cool the coil.

Air conditioner is emitting condensation through top of unit


The manual said to remove the rubber cap on the back, exterior, of the unit, insert the drain plug and push down lightly to drain off the excess water accumulation. However, a drain plug was not included in the package. Furthermore, there wasn't an actual "hole" in the unit to insert it. I did drain what I could by just leaving the cap off. This did not take care of the problem completely. Next, I unscrewed and removed the the front, interior, of the housing unit. I then noticed additional water buildup in the bottom of the unit under the sling fan. I could not remove the fan, so I used a turkey baster to **** out what water I could. I know - resourceful don't cha think! Then pushed paper towels into the bottom of the cavity to absorb any leftover water. Whaaala - problem solved.

Thanks for your prompt response.
