Question about EdgeStar Portable Air Conditioner Heater

1 Answer

Water leaking I have an edgestar 13,000 BTU Portable A/C, and just recently it started leaking water out of the front bottom, in little spurts of water, while it is on. My A/C is set on a set of plastic drawers, which is caving in a bit under the pressure, but it has been like this for months, so i can't imagine that's the problem... What can I do to resolve this issue?

    i have the same problem with water leaking on the floor. it worked fine for a while but now it is leaking. mind you, it is more humid so maybe that has something to do with it. the light never comes on that says it is full of water buy i have tried emptying it anyway. when i take the stopper out of the back, only a little water dribbles out but i can hear water running down inside and i find it in the compartment where the electrical plug is stored when not in use. it is level on the floor so it can't be that.

You have to open it and clean out the water passages.

Dometic manuals

All a/c units condense water out of the air and channel it out the back of the unit. Just tilt your unit slightly in towards the outside of the trailer-house so it does not drip on your bed.

The bottom plastic panel of my EdgeStar AP 14000 HS is cracked and leaks water. It is still under parts warranty so I expect a free replacement panel to be provided by EdgeStar. Question: how do I install...

I just replaced this pan on my unit. I have to admit it was more of an issue than I predicted. You need to remove the screws from the back cover of the unit. Then you can swing the back cover up like a hinge until it is sitting upside down on top of the front cover. Be careful not to damage the wires connecting to the circuit board. You can then remove the circuit board. After the circuit board is removed, you can remove the screws and the front cover. (note, you will have to spread the front cover to get the tabs on the center mounting locations to pop over the frame. After the front cover is removed you will see several things mounted to the base. I removed all of the fastners including the large nuts holding the compressor down. Then with some help,from a second person I lifted the unit and pulled the base away. I had to remove the yellow ground wires from the compressor in order to remove main unit. you will notice now that there are a few pieces attached to the base. I removed each piece and reinstalled it on the new base. then I assembled the entire unit in reverse.

Unit leaking water from bottom onto the floor

I know how to fix this problem, I fixed mine. The design of this unit is flawed in two ways, and you should fix both. Start by removing the back panel - just remove all the phillips head screws (you have to take out the screen filter as some of the screw heads are otherwise hidden). You will see that there is a "drain" system" (little notch cutout above the small water catcher with a tiny drainhole at the bottom) CAREFULLY drill a quarter inch hole about a quarter to half inch below the notch - drill just through the plastic, not into the fins behind. This will allow the water to properly drain. Secondly, on the lower right is the "air intake condenser" - I dont know why but they didnt put a filter on this so mine was caked with black junk after three years of use. Clean it best you can, use a brush to get between the fins and cut a $1 generic A/C filter to size and insert it. Finally, make SURE that the unit tilts backwards just little. I put a double folded towel uner the front casters. Drainage is critical as is the evaporator. Otherwise there is no chance this unit will keep the floor dry for more than about 3 years of ongoing use. Goodluck!!
