Hi! My AC is leaking. I bought it from QVC april 2009. it's been fine. all of a sudden it's leaking out the bottom. the plug is pluged in and when i try to drain it a little water comes out...
If it's leaking water and it's an electrical appliance. Water & electricity don't mix, do they? So, first turn the unit OFF and unplug it from the wall. But, not if you're standing in water.
Here's the problem: The plastic tubing that's supposed to drain the water into the bucket is clogged and it's draining it onto the floor.
Remove the water bucket and look up into the bucket cavity. You should see a small hole or tubing. That's the drain to the bucket. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie, appropriately sized to fit that hole or tube. Carefully insert the Zip Tie into it and continue to insert it, until you reach a bend in the tubing. You must gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then, slowly pull it back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow. If you don't have a Zip Tie & don't want to go out and buy one, you may use something similar. But, NO wire coat hangers.
Hope this helped you solve the problem.
