Sounds like a full cleanning job or the drain line is plugging up. First , check for A 10* lean toward the back of the unit for proper drainnage, 2- check for good air flow thru the front coils--(dirty filter --dirty coil and last ,add some clorox bleach all across the front coil while off>)

PAC CT-90 Air conditioner My CT90 is leaking

When you air condition, you essentially remove heat from the "inside air" and transfer it to the "outside air". from a google search this thing is sort of like a window air conditioner, but the hot air is sent outside via a vent hose, so the unit can be located away from the window. Any time you cool air, it holds less water, so depending on the humidity, there will be condensate formed, the question is, how is it dealt with. In window air conditioners, you see it dripping from the back side when it is running. For your unit, is it unclear how the condensate is being removed; maybe hot air going outside is directed across where the condensate collects and it is assumed it will evaporate and be vented outside as vapor? First, check and see if the unit is still under warrantee, if so, contact them and see how to get it fixed (if you mess with it, it might void the warrantee). If it has expired or the company is out of business, etc, you can try opening it up and see what is going on. The water collects under the evaporator (the fins where cold air comes out). Underneath there should be some kind of tray or something that collects the condensate and directs it somewhere in the unit for it to be gotten rid of. I'm thinking something is cracked, leaking or come loose, letting the water escape and run out. If that is the case, you might be able to use silicone seal or something like it to seal the leak. Hopefully, it is something simple like that.

Water is draining into the house?.where is the drain?

Hello, the unit must be tilted back in the window to prevent the condensate from leaking inside. Some units will have a drain plug on the bottum, while others use the condenser fan to scoop up the condensate and splash the condenser to keep it cooler and evaporate the condensate.

It's normal for ACs to produce condensation but for a window unit, they need to be installed to allow the liquid condensate to drain outside the room. If it has just started doing this, it's likely that the drain holes are clogged with debris or mold so the water builds up until it can be ejected by the fan.

Why does water shoot out of my window ac. it shoots our of the vents that blow the cool air?

1) Your AC has a VERY powerful blower. 2) The intake air filter is probably really clean (if not recently washed). 3) It is extremely humid... The water is likely condensation on the evaporator (totally normal), but because the air is flowing so well and fast, it doesn't have enough time to drip down.

I have a window air conditioner and it has been doing good for 2 months. Now lately drops of water are flying out of the air vents, what gives?

This tells me you have possibly 2 problems..
1. you need the unit to tilt to the back (outside) to prevent the condensate from coming inside.
2. the unit might be iced up. meaning it is not cycling off -often enough. this is a window unit so you might be trying to cool to big a space with it on real humid days. i would advice you close off unused rooms as well.. But my money is on 1.

The drain that runs the condensation from the unit is plugged or trapped...the condensation then blows out the front...

Condensation buildup

Make sure the unit tilts towards the outside. If it's installed level or tilted toward front it will not drain properly.
