Re: I have a Continental Portable airconditioning unit...
Your problem is that u need a general cleaning ,an with out that u will still have that problem.Now if you have a little knowledge on how to open the system thats somthing u could do yourself..Once u get the system open locate the drain assembly ,make sure that pan an hose both are cleaned out an while you are there go ahead an clean the coils on the unit to prevent any head pressure an that the unit supplies air properly if you dont have any drain cleaner for your unit use ,bleach just a little cap full an pour in pan..an after you get it clean.once a year pour in drain hose ..That should take care of your problem

It is actually a pan with a float that when full will stop the unit.
On the back of the unit, bottom, there is a rubber plug. Have a pan ready and I would advise have the unit up on a couple of 2x4s or bricks...I used a short tube and drained it into a baking pan, it is too heavy to get into a bathtub or shower.

It sounds as if the drain plug on the back of the unit, down near floor level is loose or missing Check for that first, because the unit is supposed to shut off automatically, when the drain pan is full. If the plug is leaking or missing, the unit doesn't sense, that the drain pan is full. Also, be sure you exhaust ducts are not bowing down a great deal or trapping exhausted moisture in the duct, that should be exhausted out the window.
Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.
In the back of these units where the cord pulls out, there is usually a red reset button, try pushing that to reset the unit, also make sure the filter is clean, pulls from the top out of the unit. Make sure the coils are clean as well behind the filter.
If you have cleaned the air filters then that is the first step. Next you want to check the condenser coil. That is the coil that is outside. If it is dirty you will have a low charge situation which could cause lots of condensation. Also if the condenser coil on the outside is clean and you are getting lots of water than you my have low charge of refridgerant. If that is the case you will need a professional to come and charge the unit and find the leak. Did you check to see that the unit is level. Because is should drain to the outside. The unit should be installed in a way that the water drains to the outside.
