It is freezing up. Change or clean the filter(s) and turn it off until it thaws. If this doesn't work the problem may be more serious. Usually this means it is low on freon. A technician will have to do this repair due to EPA restrictions on the refrigerant

I have a sharp window AC unit, model af-609x. does it have a drain hole? there is no water coming out of it, but when we take it out of the window we get soaked from water somewhere inside the unitl


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."

Haier 5500 window unit, spits water into the room sometimes. Also, water "sloshes" around inside the fan area & is quite noisy sometimes. ? Thankyou for your assistance...


You will need to reposition the unit to where it will be tilted downwards slightly outside.
The water will then flow out the back and not spit into the room.

Window air conditioner is spitting water


Hello, usually a window AC will spit water if the unit is not tilted back or if the drain is backed up, if the unit is level try tilting it back it the window somewhat. Also, if the unit does have a drain make sure it is not blocked.

My ac is spitting watter by the vent, and making noise i think it happends when the fan inside hits the water that acumulates inside is there something i can do to fix this and make the water go out


The AC fan is blowing the water that has condensed on the cooling pipes.It is possible that there is clogging of dirt in the fins of the cooling pipe'
this results in water logging.The filters must be clogged and dirt has accumalated.Use a good air spray or a water jet to clean.The condensed water must flow to the rear of the unit to drain out .{A/C must be fitted slightly tilted.}.Hope this helps.

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

Water in air conditioner


A lot of the newer window units design the outside fan to pickup the condensate water and sling it onto the coil. The evaporative effect makes the unit run more efficiently. They ususally don't spit, but if the unit is running well, otherwise, I would't worry about it.

Droplets of water are coming from the vents and it's making a noise like something is rattling around inside. What could this be?


The problem with this unit is that the evaporator, or the part of the air conditioner that 'creates' the colder air is not draining correctly. Pertaining to a window unit, it needs to be installed correctly with the correct amount of tilt toward outside, to allow the evaporator condensation water to drain. You may also want to check to make sure there aren't any plugged drain holes in the air conditioner housing.

The rattling you hear is most likely the blower fan spinning against the held water inside the unit.

I hope this helps! :)

Window unit just started spitting a little water and making a noise like when something is too tight a fit, a rubbing noise. just started minutes ago. it's raining but, what could of happened?


Make sure the window unit is evenly placed inside the window frame.Just a slight twisting of the housing will cause the fan blade to scrape the housing. Make sure that the fan blade has no come loose from the fan motor shaft if that does not solve the problem. Also make sure the window unit tilts slightly downward so that any water from the condensate produced inside the home on the condenser coil can drain down the slope to the outsidelike the way explained. I have also seen units that were positioned correctly but the drain trough is blocked and will not allow the water to drain outside the house. Let Me Know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

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.
