When I turn the machine off and on, I hear there's water in the water tray. Can't find the manual though. How do I get to and empty the water tray? It can't be good to just leave that water in the tray until we remove the unit from the window in the winter.
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.

If your water tray was empty check the water supply to the fridge .
you shouldn't fill it manually.
\if the water supply is turned on, then the operating solenoid that allows water into the tray is faulty.
Whoever repaired your fridge should be called back immediately.
I experienced the problem with a hotpoint TCYM 750, with the red empty water light failing to switch off. After removing the filter and cleaning it, cleaning the condenser and drying anywhere I had access to the machine still didn't heat and the light remained on. Reading the post about the machine having 3 reservoirs it struck me that one of the reservoirs may be hard to access. So I unplugged the machine and tipped it onto its front. The reservoir drained, I pushed the machine back upright and cleared up some water around the condenser. The drier now works properly and the empty water light is off - job done!
Miele CVA 4066 -Empty drip tray warning would not go off even after draining the drip tray, cleaning contacts, and resetting power. Water was coming out from under the empty tray. I pulled unit out and removed sheet metal in rear around water inlet. when I attached water line and power cord & turned on power, I could see water dripping out of one of the 2 solonoids on the water inlet valve. $168.00 from Miele and no expensive service call.
The water filter should be changed every six months, not two years. The water lines may still be frozen even though you turned the unit off, but most likely you are not getting water flow due to a clogged filter. Change it.
HI Excess water into the drip tray is an indication that you don't have enough coffee going into the brew unit. There is a lever on the top of the door that has a + on one side and a - to the front. Push the lever back to the full plus, then pull it forward 1 click. Try that. Water into the drip tray is normal in small amounts. This is the release of pressure after brewing, like the 3 way valve on commercial machines
If you have a rotarywheel; Press and hold to enter the menu, turn to Maintenance, select Decalcify unit; empty tray as requested, fill up 600ml water in a container. Disolve 3 Descaling tablets in the water, and then fill it in the watertank. Press Maintenance button and you`re off.
If you don`t have a Rotary; Turn off the machine and let it cool down for a while, then push the Rinse/Maintenance button for a few seconds; then you will get the message Empty tray. Fill the solution in the watertank and press button.
It`s important that you use the right amount of water, or else the process will "never" finish.
The Solution: Top up the softener tray with extra water so that it is up to the 'max level' mark.
The softener tray works by a siphon action. Thus, the reason the tray does not empty is that not enough water is added by
the machine during the softening cycle, so that the machine does not
completely fill the softening tray; only when the softening tray is
filled beyond the 'max' mark does the siphon action works. A partially
filled tray will never empty - it's impossible due to the siphon.
The reason that not enough water is added to the tray during the
softening action is that the water inlet of the machine is partial
blocked (you can try to fix that) but it is simpler to just added more
water to the conditioner tray.
Thus, the easiest way to ensure that the softener tray empties every
time (after adding the softener to the softener tray of course) is to
top up the softener tray with extra water, top it up to the 'max level'
line (keep a bottle of water by the machine). That way, even if only a
little water is added to the softener tray during the softening cycle
by the machine it is enough to trigger the siphon action and the tray
Works for me every time, and no need to remove any parts - I used to
take the tray out, clean it, scrub the outlet holes that fill the tray
etc, but they used to gum up again quite quickly!
