Algae builds up in the tray at the bottom of the evaporator coil. There are pills for that, and a cap of bleach will do fine, but smell for a little while. Sometimes the whole unit will have to be removed outside for a good hosing out. Sometimes I just give the coils a good spritzing, with the filter out, with windex with bleach. I'll use an old toothbrush to clean the coils, get down at the bottom where the stuff is clogged up.

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.

On cool will work for a short time. then will stop regardless of room temperature. If stopped for a short while then restarted will begin to spit water or ice.


Unit stopped by coil sensor when ice formed.

Problem due to weak capacitor of indoor fan motor/short of gas/coil & air filter dust blocked.
Replace fan capacitor/if short of gas, tap up some gas/clean coil and air filter.

Hope, it's helpful.

Window unit spitting water out of air vent


Possible thatt due to non cleaning of the filter the cooling coil fins have got choked with dirt. The condensation of water on the coils will make it flow out of the area instead of dripping down to be drained out through the chassis out let..
So open the front grill, remove filter and use agood air /water jet to clean well so that there is air gap in the fins.
This must clear the issue as water will drop down to the back side to the chassis to be drained without any spill.

Sears Plasmaire spits water into room


It's probably just holding water somewhere and getting thrown out. I've seen people drill holes on the bottoms to drain water quicker.

Lots of water in unit spitting all over the floor and loud rattle


If it is rattling when in either fan or cool, you are having either a fan motor problem or the blade is hitting something. The water may be from a clogged drain port (by coil) which u are not seeing, if a new one is under 250, that is your best bet!

Ac. spits out water in the front and ac., is tilted back ,gets worse as it runs


You need to blow into the drainpipe on the outside of the building to clear the blocked drainpan outlet. This just to make sure that your drain is clear. If the problem persists. Check that the filter is clean. This can also happen if you are slightly short of refrigerant and running the aircon at 18C or lower on a humid day.
