Question about Air Conditioners

1 Answer

My sister was stumped because her window unit a/c keeps leaking water inside her house.She even had her husband drill a small hole in the housing of the a/c, so that it would drain excess water more efficiently, but it still drains inside the house,they also tried to tilt the unit more, but no luck.Do you have any suggestions?

If you remove the lower casing of the unit, you will find that it was design in such a way the water followed a certain track. Your problem should be fixed if you align that track with the opening to coils so water should drain in the proper track.

Where is the drain hole on goldstar window ac my ac keeps dripping water inside the house


Hello, make sure the unit is tilted toward the outside a bit, if it is level the condensate will collect in the front and start dripping inside the house. Also, if the unit has a drain make sure it is clean so the water can drain out properly.

Drainage occurs near the front of the unit, resulting in pools of water leaking onto my window sill. Unit is installed properly, there is no drain hole to direct water away from the insides of the walls...


The A/C unit should be tilted slightly to the rear and this will allow the water to leak to the outside of the window, you may have to drill a small hole in the case to drain if there is no pre-existing hole.

There is no drain hole for water to drip outside.


These are designed to retain some water in the pan. This is for the slinger fan to throw water through the condensing coil. This helps the refrigerant cool and is important to the efficiency of the unit. I would certainly not recommend drilling a hole in the bottom. The hole may cause the water to roll somewhere where damage could occur. Try instead tipping the unit Backwards before bringing it in the house.

Water is not draining forom my hampton bay air condiotioner. It is gurgling and you can see water inside the unit. I have tilted it more in the window there is some water dripping but there is still water...


Allot of Window units do not have a drain anymore. The condenser fan picks up the water that lays in the bottom of the unit and slings it against the condenser coil to help keep it cool. If it is not leaking water inside the house it is normal to have some water in the bottom of the unit. This is verified by not having a drain hole or hose. As an A/C service tech I didn't care for this design as allot of people thought that there was a problem when there was not. They also tend to be a little noisier as the water makes noise when it is being thrown around inside the unit. I hope this helps

Condensation leaks out front of unit into the house.


Hi, no don't drill holes in bottom tray, to make drain, that's design, you need to keep water there, the fan usually pick up water(moisture) and add to your air inside your home, otherwise the air in your home will become to dry, dry air will create static electricity all over your home, from your carpet to your clothes, you need to level your unit horizontally, put a spirit level, and you should have a slight pitch, from front to back, good luck.
