That air conditioner has a cooling coil that drips water into a formed plastic pan at the bottom that the coil sits in. The condenser sits in a pan similar to the pan previously mentioned. The pans are connected by a tube that allows the cooling coil water to find its way to the outside area under the condenser. The condenser fan outside has a ring attached to the end of the blades called a sling ring. As the fan spins it picks the water up and "slings" the water against the condenser thus getting rid of the water through evaporation and giving the air conditioner an additional 13 percent more capacity. If you drill drain holes I have seen units quit working because that additional capacity is engineered into heat rejection. Hope I helped good luck.

You cannot tell the manufacture date from a model number, only from the serial number. Try contacting manufacture with the serial number...
Hello Either the filter is clogged and needs to be repaced.Or check the coil inside the unit and see if it is getting iced up.You can try shutting the unit down for an hour or raising the temp.If this helps the motor speed then you know the coil was iced up. It is also possible the motor may be going bad,doubtfull though since they will run for a while then shut off. Check your filter Check for ice Possibly clean the inside coil.
