Its probably leaking due to the drains outlet is stopped up. Shouldn't be a plug in it. At the bottom of the indoor coil there is a pan that catches the condensation. Its probably Styrofoam. The drain opening are commonly on the right side but not viable from the front. If possible, the housing can be removed to see the opening/very small. Or, with the unit pulled from the window, spray the coil and pan at the bottom to try and clear the opening spraying through the coil. You can also use cpmpressed air to blow through the bottom of coil where the coil sits in pan. This might get messy if the unit is still in place. The opening for drain is about the size of a drinking straw. Good luck!
Hello, some window units do not have a drain hole for the condensate, instead the use the fan blade to sling the water on the condenser, since the condenser is warm/hot it will evaporate the condensate.
Hello, most window units evaporate the condensate by having the fan blad sling the water on the condenser. Because the condenser is warm/hot it will evaporate. You shou.d be hearing a sloshing sound after the unit has benn running for a while, this indicates that the fan blade is picking up the water from the bottum of the ac.
The tray below the evaporator has a drain tray with a drain hole to fit in a hose. Due to high level off dirt accumulation it is possible that the tray drain is clogged and prevent the condensed water to flow out. Open the unit and look under the panel to find this, use a thin flexible cord to push into this drain hole to clear it. You can also use a good air jet with the flexible nozzle pointed to the hole to push out the dirt.
1) the AC is 'tilted backwards' just a little bit - to allow the water (condensate water from the evap coil) to drip from the bottom of the AC - out the 'condensate drain hole' - sometimes into a drain hose (usually rubber) or just through the hole to somewhere outside where it doesn't hurt anything.
2) make sure the - condensate drain hole, and drain hose - (if one is used) is clear and not clogged up - to allow the condensate water to drain.
On the condenser / outside left rear corner about 4 incues in from the corner and left side as you look at it there is a punch out hole in the drain pan. The newer AC Units are designed to use the plastic fan blade of the condenser fan to splash water on the condenser and evaporate the water. Most of the time it is not necessary to open this drain hole unless you live in a damp climate where the home constantly has a higher internal humidity percentage. It is however necessary to have the unit serviced at regular intervals for coil and fan cleaning due to the fact that dust becomes a caked up goo over time especially on the condenser coil and the 2 fans.
If you feel that you need to open the hole in the drain pan trhen you will also need to install the 3 X 5 inch external drain catch basin with 3 screws and possibly connect an external drain hose and piping.
Hi, most all evaporative water coolers have a threaded hole in the bottom of the unit. It will look like a piece of plastic pipe about 4 to 5 inches tall and it just screws in a hole. just grab hold of it and turn it ccw to remove it for draining. Keep me posted. Sincerely, Shastalaker7 PS, If it is to tight to remove by hand, you can use channel lock pliers.
OK. This fixed my A120LE from leaking. First unplug the machine for
safety. If you are looking at the back of the unit you need to take off
the right side panel. I took off the all the panels but you could just
take off the right side.
There is a reservoir on the top that collects condensation from the top
coil. (shown in the circle) The drain hole on mine was clogged. If you
stick a small screwdriver or paperclip in the hole to push the debris
through it should start working properly again. I did this to mine
yesterday and it hasn't leaked since!! Drain hole is shown here in
close up picture. Unclogging this will allow the condensation to flow
down to the main reservoir on the bottom where it will be evaporated in
the AC exhaust.
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.
Good place to start is up on the roof. Look way under the unit (hard to see some times) along the bottom, between where the gasket sits on the roof and metal bottom of unit. Should see small round or similar sticking down from unit. There will be a hole in the side of them. Poke around with a wire or something to open them up. If you don't see water/condensation running across your roof from unit when it's operating, (usually in 2 directions, 1 each side of unit) then yup, there plugged.
