    thank you I will have a look. No water coming from hose. Is that the black thin one? Are you able to tell me the modes. There is a red circle thing and a green and a dish with drops of water.

PAC CT-90 Air conditioner My CT90 is leaking

When you air condition, you essentially remove heat from the "inside air" and transfer it to the "outside air". from a google search this thing is sort of like a window air conditioner, but the hot air is sent outside via a vent hose, so the unit can be located away from the window. Any time you cool air, it holds less water, so depending on the humidity, there will be condensate formed, the question is, how is it dealt with. In window air conditioners, you see it dripping from the back side when it is running. For your unit, is it unclear how the condensate is being removed; maybe hot air going outside is directed across where the condensate collects and it is assumed it will evaporate and be vented outside as vapor? First, check and see if the unit is still under warrantee, if so, contact them and see how to get it fixed (if you mess with it, it might void the warrantee). If it has expired or the company is out of business, etc, you can try opening it up and see what is going on. The water collects under the evaporator (the fins where cold air comes out). Underneath there should be some kind of tray or something that collects the condensate and directs it somewhere in the unit for it to be gotten rid of. I'm thinking something is cracked, leaking or come loose, letting the water escape and run out. If that is the case, you might be able to use silicone seal or something like it to seal the leak. Hopefully, it is something simple like that.

Yes, we have a fridgidaire FAC127S1A Model and we installed it today and are having trouble with it leaking water once it runs for a while. (The hole on the under side of the A/C.) Is this normal or is it...

If the water is leaking to the outside, that is normal. Especially if, the humidity is high outside.

If it's leaking to the inside. No, that's not normal and is due to improper installation. The rear of the unit should tilt down about 1/4" , to allow the water to drain outside via the drain pan hole.

To help you further, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual for your FAC127S1A model air conditioner. You can download and print it for future reference.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

We conected for the first time a frigidaire portable air conditioner. I dont have the manual. It works great, but I don't know where am I suppose to connect the black thin hose that came with the a/c...

That black hose is for the drain as air conditioners collect moisture as a side effect of cooling the air. That black hose should connect on to the outside bottom of the unit. It wll flood if the drain hole or nipple are plugged or blocked off. The air conditioner, if a window model, should not sit level in the opening but canter slightly to the outside to help drain off that moisture collected. If the nipple is broken off you'll need to find a way to mount that hose in the hole without sticking up into the unit so it can drain the water off. The hose is necessary to keep the water flowing outside instead of flooding the opening or inside.
Hope this helps and please rate my solution!!

Ac keeps leaking down

The drain water from the bottom of the cooling fin tray has a sump from which there is a small hose that exits the water through a small opening to the outside. While the carpets are cleaned or removed there is a possibility that this flexible hose would have come off from the platform or the hose disconnected from the sump tray. So look under the dash beneath the AC unit for the hose and either plug the hose into the drain or into the sump but only with an investigation.Hope you try this out. Good day

My maytag air conditioner is great, quiet and cool, but it leaks

Is the unit tipped backward toward the outside of the structure? Also, check the drain holes in the drip pan to be sure they are not clogged. The holes will be under the outside part of the unit.

I have a 2 year old SAAB Sport Combi. After driving through heavy rains, we discovered a big puddle of water on the floorboard behind the passenger seat. Mechanic could not find anything wrong with...

Water leaks can be difficult to find, so mechanic may not be at fault. You have to be ready to spend some time on the problem. To find it you are on the right track weith seals but not with radiator. If it only occurs in heavy rain radiator or coolant is not a factor. WEhat you need to do is start at like the rear or front door and check the weather strips. If they all look fine have all windows up in car. Have one person in the car with a flash light. The other person should be outside the car with a water hose. Have the person outside start at a point and spray the car with the hose. While inside person checks for water coming in. This has to be done moving the hose slowly so you can look and find leak. This can take some time thats why you should try to locate leak yourself even if you pay someone to repair it instead of repairing yourself. Finding it can be expensive due to not knowing how long it will take to find.

Same problem with the leaking from the base of the soleus unit

There is nothing wrong with the unit, you just are in a humid area, the water is from the air.

The water is being pulled from the air, that is part of how it cools, by condensing water.

Some units have hose fittings that can be hooked up to normal garden hoses and routed outside.

You could also install something like that yourself.
