SOURCE: Soleus LX-140 leaking problem

We have a 1-year PE3-09R-03 that just started dripping water on the floor. The red "tank full" light never came on. I opened it up to investigate, and I believe the problems are caused by dust. The plastic float that trips the "tank full" switch appears to have gotten stuck due to the combination of water and dust in the tray. Once I loosened it up and cleaned the guide tube it rides in, it would trip the switch when the tank was full. The reason the tank was filling up was a little less obvious. There is a 2-piece plastic tray that sits underneath the evaporator and above the condenser. The tray is supposed to distribute the water that's dripping from the cold evaporator coils onto the warm condenser coils so it can evaporate and be blown out with the warm exhaust air (note that "evaporator" and "condenser" are referring to the refrigerant - the terms appear backwards when referring to what's happening to the water on the outside). The tray and its lid have a series of tiny holes that were - guess what - plugged by dust. The tray is relatively easy to remove, just two screws and a spring clamp on the overflow hose. The tray lid is heat-staked onto the tray, you should be able to clean it without separating the lid. I cleaned and reinstalled the tray and verified that water would flow properly. I then reassembled the unit and fired it up, and it's been running without a puddle for over a day in humid weather.
The unit has a filter for the recirculating room air, but there is no filter for the outside air loop. Adding a filter would obviously help keep the dust out, but it could also reduce the cooling efficiency of the unit.
DO NOT use one of these on a floor you care about without some sort of emergency catch tray underneath!

SOURCE: Model: KFR-32GW/Ac Will not stop leaking

Possible one of two problems. first make sure the unit is tilted away from the inside slightly. Second there are very small drains that let water flow from the front coil to the rear of the ac if the unit has been dirty it can plug these holes. You can find the holes by pulling the ac out or just remove it and use a hose to clean it. You can buy coil cleaner at a hardware store just follow the directions.

I think 2 things will correct this problem. 1. be certain that the unit is tilted to theoutside about 1 inch or so. 2. be certain that the filter is clean.. Let me know if it does not solve it . have a great day

My portable ac says to add water, how do i do that


There are 2 issues.
The first is that there is a water container in which you must fill water so the compressor cools. This is housed usually in the side. There is an automatic push panel on the side of the unit which when pushed opens the door. The container sits inside which needs to be taken out and filled daily.

The other is the water that condenses because of cooling the air. This settleas at the bottom of the ac. Bend down abd you will see a drain plug and a rubber blocker. Unscrew the drain plug and pull the rubber. All the condensed water will flow out. It can be messay so preferably drain in the bathroom.

Have a Soleus LX-140 portable air conditioner. Water was leaking out the right side of the machine. Opened the casing and found a clear hose, one end attached to the plastic tray above the condenser and...


I have an LX-100, and had the same problem, so I am guessing that the designs are similar. There should be a pump in the condensate pan at the bottom of the unit -- on mine, it was near the front, right next to the overflow float switch. There should be an outlet on top of the pump, which is where the hose needs to be attached.

It looks like the pump pushes condensate up into that plastic tray, which lets if flow over the heat exchanger, both cooling it and evaporating the water. With the hose detached, you're probably noticing degraded cooling performance and a lot more condensate in the holding tank than there should be. At least, that was the case for me. Good luck.

Model: KFR-32GW/Ac Will not stop leaking water from the front of the unit. Coils have no ice. Shut off unit for 30 min the leaking stops but resumes when AC is turned back on.

Washer leaking


It may have torn the gasket or just have a sock stuck in it.
you can remove the bottom panel to help look.
(3 screws on bottom front lip)
remove ac power
you cannot operate with bottom door removed as it has a safety switch.
While you are down there open the filter and look for trapped debris.
ready for some water , have towels ready.
