Question about Samsung AW0503B Air Conditioner

Condensation causing water collection

My Samsun air conditioner AW70ECB7 is great. But lately during this hot weather there's been water leakage out the bottom front causing a puddle of water. I put it on 75 instead of 64 and it worked for awhile, but it's just a fan type of air. Is there a drain hole on the outside? I couldn't find one or even see into the air conditioner from either front or the back. Thanks much, Donna

    Thanks I'll try those things. However, I haven't seen any drain hole; should I be able to see it from underneath the air conditioner? deejmcc

Hi there!

Make sure the unit is level and not tilted forwards.Tilt back if anything.

There should be a drain hole at the back, but it may be clogged, or there may be an obstruction causing the water to build up.

In times of high humidity, water will condense on the cooling coils, and drip off. This is usually carted away by means of a tray flowing to an outside pipe.

One design uses a flinger to catch any water and throw it onto the evaporator coils - thus improving efficiency, but if there is anything touching the coils, like a feather etc, it will flow down that and leak.

Tip it back as the first action, then investigate if it doesn't drain.

We need the manual for this air conditioner. We have a lot of condensation coming from the internal unit after we switch it off from the cold setting.


there will always be condensation on the fins of the indoor unit as that is the purpose of it
The evaporator condenses the hot moisture of the air in the room as it hits the cold evaporator fins and that water is drained off by a hose to the outside of the house
One way to reduce the condensation to a minimum is to keep the fins clean of the greasy dust that collects as that way the water is running while it is operating and not collecting in the fins

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.

Need to know if I can connect a drain hose/tube to my air conditioner model # FAX054-P7A1. I'm having a problem with water collecting in the window sill/track


Hello, the first thing is make sure the AC is tilted a bit in the window, if it is level the water will collect toward the front of the unit and drip inside. Second if there is a drain hole on tne unit then you can connect a hose to it and let it drain. However if there is no drain hole then the unit uses tne fan blade to splash the water on the condenser and since the condenser is warm/hot it will condense the water.

Lg split type leaking water from bottom seams


There is a drain tray under the fins in the wall unit which collects condensed water and and drain it out through a outlet. Sometime the tray gets clogged wit the dust and thus water instead of going towards outlet gets accumulated at one place and spill over. You can remove the front cover and see this water out let and the tray. Clean it and ensure that it is connected to outlet properly. Also check your water out let pipe which throws the water out is not clogged with the muck/dirt as this the most common cause for water leakage in the machine. The condensed water has no get away,

Does the product a/c have a drain hole?


Air conditioners of your type have tiny passages that allow the water (if clean) to go to the back of the unit where a splash ring on the fan blade whips the water onto the hot condenser coil, eliminating the condensate outdoors and subcooling the refigerant in the condenser in doing so.
If you have water inside and its level or slight tilt back , then you need to clean it up or forget it!

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.

Sunbeam air conditioner


It is normal for water to collect in the lower base of an air conditioner. See the section entitled: "There is water sloshing around inside." If water leaks out the front it is usually because the unit is tilted forward in the window frame. All air conditioners should be installed so they tilt slightly back to allow for proper removal of the condensation collected.

There is water sloshing around inside All window air conditioners will remove moisture from the air if there is any. Most window air conditioners collect this moisture in the bottom pan of the air conditioner and attempt to evaporate the moisture. The evaporation process works as follows: First, the water drips down off of the cold evaporator coils on the front of the unit. Then the water collects in the bottom of the air conditioner base, the "pan." If the air conditioner is installed properly it will be tilted slightly back.

The water then collects near the back of the unit. On some units, the fan blade used to cool the rear condensing coils will have a rim on the outside of the fins of the blade. This rim, or "slinger," will come close to touching the inside of the air conditioner pan when the fan is spinning. As the water collects in the pan and reaches the depth necessary for the fan ring to touch it, the ring will lift some of the water up and the fan will blow it at the condensing coils. Because the coils are warm, they will evaporate the moisture to the outside.

While this is happening it is normal to hear water splashing and sloshing around. As long as there is no water leaking inside the room that is being cooled there is no cause for concern.

Never drill into the bottom of and air conditioning unit to "let the water out."

if this helps please give me a fix ya
