Check to make sure the drain holes are free from debris. The drain pan not draining causes the spitting and the fan is blowing out the water. Using a metal rod or hanger, gently clear all holes in the bottom of the unit. Prepare to get wet!

Should you keep a spitting ac on or off?


Check the your A/C unit to make sure it's level (or at the incline recommended by mfgr.) Most units are water-tolerant, but you don't want to worry about your windowsill or floors getting moldy.

Tip

If your Haeir window A/C unit is spitting water


I got this tip from this site yesterday when my Haeir A/C window unit began spitting water. Look for either a hole on the bottom edge of unit or a horizontal **** on bottom of unit it will either be in the front or back, take a toothpick or if your A/C is in a window unit and your target is on outside, take a long broom, bristle end up and brush out between window ledge and unit, any dirt that may have collected there. This will unclog the hole(s). You should also try to drain any water collected, out of unit. Turn A/C back on, it may do the same thing for about 15 minutes, but the problem should go away. Remember, you may not be actually able to see the hole or ****, but IT IS THERE. Make sure you brush it as thoroughly as you can. It worked for me. Thanks FixYa!!!

FAC105P1A spitting water


Easy fix. reposition the unit to where is tilts slightly downwards in the rear so that the water will flow out the back instead of inside. NEVER drill any holes in a window unit.

Hi, recently my a/c window unit starting making a water sloushing sound then started spitting ice. Is it dying?


What you are hearing is a water buildup in the drip pan under the unit. This is caused by a clogged drain hole and/or not enough downward tilt on the rear of the unit. The rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2' rear downward tilt. This allows the water to flow to the rear of the drip pan and out thru the drain hole. The spitting ice, is from the fan blades hitting the water in the drip pan. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Then check and adjust if necessary, the things I mentioned above. Aslo, be sure that the air intake filter remains clean.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

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.

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.

Frigidaire window unit spits water into room


To be honest with you this is a good and a bad thing. The bad thing is that it is spitting water into the room. The good thing is that the unit is running Great. The amount of humidity it is removing. is greater and faster than it can run down and off the coil. See if there is any possible way to deflect the water. i would recommend trying to attach a piece of screen door material. It will likely keep the water from going through it.
