We have purchased 2 window units, model number AEW10APH1. Where do we find the drain on the bottom for the condesation to drain from?

Hello, most window air conditioners do not have a bottum drain. The way they get rid of the condensate is by having tje fan splash it on tje condenser, since the condenser is warm it will evaporate the condensate and this cyle keeps reapeating untill the unit is turned off.

Internal unit is leaking water

Check condensate tubes - they may be blocked and need cleaning. All manufactures recommend having your furnace and air conditioner checked and cleaned on an anual basis. You can clean your condensate tubes yourself - if it is severly blocked you may have to use compressed air to unblock, but first to a combination of bleach and water. Better yet a technician will clean the condensate tubes and well as the rest of the unit so that it's running at its top efficiency

Trying to clean the drain, how do I remove the bottom front panel to get to the filter?

you do not need to prop up the washer.
the screws are easily reached, unscrew 3 along the top and bottom panels.
the bottom panel does not, should not come off, the drain is white, attached to a black hose inside, remember a bucket!
do not touch that motor! it is ungrounded and will shock you!

I have a thru-wall unit that is draining out of the back and cooling just fine. My problem is the hole in which the ac goes thru. There seems to be some condensation on the bottom of the unit that drips...

you are correct the gap needs to be closed, i would suggest the double taped insulation they use on pick up truck when you put a topper on, as if you ever need to remove unit it would be easier then the expansion foam. Hope this helps Tim

Kenmore 580.75151500 A/C unit smells... We've had this window unit in place for 2 years. We've cleaned the front filter and coil, but we're still getting different, peculiar smells from the A/C. Sometimes...


As you know, the evaporator unit (the one that the filter covers) gets a lot of condensation which is drained thru the back (outside) of the unit. That's why the unit is installed a bit tilted to the back.

The factory drain hole is too small and gets plugged up easy, some units don't even have one, the water sits for long periods of time. bacteria grows and the smell starts.

Unplugg unit from electrical outlet.

Make sure the unit is tilted back a little.

Drill two 1/4" inch drain holes in the same back bottom corner and set a bucket to collect the dirty water that will come out while cleaning it.

Get a quart of air conditioning grill cleaner (the ecol-friendly, it is purple in color) mix it on a spray bottle with water on a 1:1 ratio.

Use masking tape and some plastic to cover electrical controls in front of unit.

Following application instruccions on bottle, carefully spray on evaporator and condenser, avoiding electrical controls. Rinse with pure water, 2 qts. minimum on each grill, let it drain for about one hour.

Uncover controls and connect unit to power outlet.

Run the fan-only for about 10 min. and then the compressor.

There are more professional ways to service the unit, but performing this simple steps will keep your unit in good shape.

Don't forget to rate this post!! Good Luck!!

Water/condensation is backing up in the bottom of the unit and overflowing into the house.

The drain in the condensate drip pan is clogged. Locate it and clean it out.

Turn the unit off, check the bottom rear of the unit and place a shallow pan under the drain outlet and remove the rubber plug to drain the condensate out of the unit then replace the plug and turn the unit back on.

True cooler td 65 24. what is holding the sled in place

I think you are referring to the condensing unit that the compressor sits on. Look on the rite side of the unit near the bottom. There you should find 1 3/8" screw that runs through the side of the unit into the "sled" thus holding it in place.

Hello Cheryl, what they are talking about is a drain. As air conditioners run they collect moisture from the air on the evap(in cooling mode) or condenser ( in heat mode). This moisture will run off the part and flow into the tray. In the cooling mode, the moisture is slung onto the condenser to help cool it down, thus be more effective. I always recommend once a year remove the unit and clean all the coils and oil the fan motor. Household oil will work for this. During this cleaning find and clean out the drain. If it gets clogged that water can run back into the home. The PC pipe is sometimes attached to the unit to direct the water to a designated place. These units are common in hotels and they use the pipe to keep the water from dripping on the guest as they walk under the windows. Hope this helps.
