You should raise the machine so that it drains better.

Where is the drain pan drain hole on the bottom of the Fridgidaire FAC 127S1A air conditioner?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know where the drain hole is on your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAC127S1A. I see that the drain seems to be blocked, as water is collecting in the drain pan, instead of draining. The drain hole is located beneath the compressor. You might want to try tilting your air conditioner slightly to the outside, to allow better water drainage. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

How do I clean the condensation drain on my Fridgidaire fac127s1a?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know how to clean the condensation drain on your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAC127S1A. I see that the drain seems to be blocked, as water is collecting in the drain pan, and beginning to leak from the front. The drain hole is located beneath the compressor. You would have to get underneath that to clean the drain. You might want to try tilting your air conditioner slightly to the outside, to allow better water drainage. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

Water dripping inside window opening


I would make sure the 'drain hole' is clear and not stopped up. Sounds like it could be stopped up and you have so much water in the unit it's over-flowing and coming out inside the window.

hope this helps.

p.s. one other thing - you might need to put another hole in the unit (to allow better draining). Typically these units just drip water outside and putting (with a drill) another hole in the bottom of the unit to allow better draining is easily done.

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!

Water is leaking out front of machine depsite having it tilted so it drains towards pan. How do i fix this?


I'm not an AC expert, but I've had this happen before too. Even though I always kept my filters clean, I still got an accumulation of dust in the water that eventually clogged the drain holes. If the unit is installed, try squirting the drain areas a lot with a squirt bottle set on "stream" setting. If you can easily take the unit out, you could hit the drain areas with a hose (which will work better, but obviously can't be done inside). Good luck.

Had a question, can you place the two hoses that drain the access water in a bucket rather then place the hoses out a window the drain?


Hi, yes you can, but make sure bucket is big enough to fetch all water from machine, always keep hose same level with water in tub, when machine is in operation. lowering hose to floor could get water out by gravity. it's better to put drain hose in sinks, or some form of plumbing, work machine, don't let machine work you, but if it's more convenient for you to drain in bucket, sure, it's o.k. good luck.

Leaking Haier Commercial Cool air conditioner.


there are 3 drain holes in the primary pan right underneath the evaporator that need to be clean with a pipe cleaner or a wire of somekind and there is also a secondary drain behind it that will work only if the unit is 100% level. To access the primary drain pan you have to take all the screws of the back cover 5 on each side and 3 in the center above the electric cord and behind the air filter and only then will you be able to see these very small holes. Use a flashlight to make sure. Have fun!Reply

How to Drain water out of glass tube thats full


You do not need to drain the tube. Drain the "boiler" untill the water level in the tube is at the half way mark. If it keeps rising to high you may need to replace or repair your auto feed control. BOILERS CAN BE DANGEROUS IF YOU ARE NOT QUALIFIED TO SERVICE IT. You would be better off to hire a contractor to make the repair and to teach you the basic operating info on your particular system. You are better off spending the money for the repair SO YOU STAY SAFE

Water Leaking


Dear Customer,
The likely reasons for a leaking AC are...
1) Improperly installed.
A window air conditioner must be slightly lower at the rear than the front. This allows the water being removed from the room to drain to the back of the machine. A difference of one inch is sufficient. This is always the first thing to check. Many are improperly installed in the haste to get relief from the heat. If installed too low at front the water will flow into the room rather than outside. If installed too low at rear, water can roll out front edges before has chance to exit towards rear drain.


  1. Icing up.
    Water being de-humidified can turn to ice if there are problems with the cooling system. There are many reasons for an air conditioner to produce ice. Remove front grille while machine is operating. If ice is present on the cooling coil you will probably need service. For more information see our other article: Why window Air Conditioners Ice up.


  1. Air leakage around air conditioner.
    If warm air is able to enter around the air conditioner it will encounter cooler, dryer air. When they meet condensation will occur. If water leaking from front of air conditioner inspect to see if dripping from body of machine, or water droplets clinging to front area. To test, operate machine for 30 minutes and then use flashlight to check under front edge of base. Small water droplets here indicate an air leakage problem. Add foam insulation to stop warm air from infiltrating.


  1. Drain hole blocked.
    Rear of air conditioner base has a drain hole or groove to allow water to escape. If becomes blocked water can back up. To test, operate machine for 30 minutes and then inspect if draining properly. If appears blocked use a small piece of wood to open drain hole at rear of metal base. CAUTION: Never be tempted to drill holes into the air conditioner body to relieve water pooling. Severe damage can result.


  1. Internal drains blocked.
    There are small passageways that allow water to drain from front of air conditioner to the rear. If they become blocked water will pool at front of machine and overflow onto floor. If this happens the air conditioner will require removal from window and servicing.


  1. Outside temperature too cold.
    This occurs at end of cooling season. If outside temperatures drops below 60 degrees Fahrenheit at night the cooling coil may ice up. If no leakage at bedtime but water in front of machine in morning, suspect this problem. If this problem suspected turn off machine before bedtime and restart as day warms. Alternately, operate machine at night with selector switch in ‘fan only’ position. This will circulate room air during night but not allow cooling.
Hope u find this useful. I'll be thankful if u could rate this. thank you.
