    The fan itself (blade assy) was damaged, the motor is OK. Never found the drain or drain plugs on bottom panel, the fan was spinning IN accumulated water and was splashing everywere. The air con had an even more aggressive slope than recommended in install instr.

    So basically "made" a drain but busted the plastic fan blades in process.

    Thanks for the relpy.

Hey, I like your explaination of error. so forget plastic blades, go metal! Just take the blade down to a dealer and tell them to match you up as close as possible ,,(the #'s of blades--Pitch- slinger ring or not..and the hole diameter..--& blades diameters thats all! and tell them just get close to specs. Thank-you very-much!

Hey, why did you need a drain hole any way? There's a ring, on the newer type units, around the fan blade called the "slinger ring" which picks ups the water and splash it on the coils to cools the hot gases,which in turn cools the freon. The bottom of the back coils are suppose to set in water to help cools, so don't lean it too much only to keep the water flowing backward to the back coils..! If you want to ,you can cut this slinger ring off.and not hurt the blades balance! Thank you-very-much!

Hey, sound like it as doing its job, to remove moisture ans send it to the back bottom coils ,which it suppose to cool the hot gases on the bottom run of coils then if too much water , it runs out the drain hole. You didn't say the fan blades or the fan motor?

Where is drain plug

Usually on a window AC there is no drain plug. It relies on the tilt of the of the AC. The AC should be installed with a slight rear tilt so the water flows to the rear to where there should be two factory drain holes. Besure to get proper drainage otherwise the fan will pick up water and blow it into you house and cause humidity. I have also drill a hole on the lowest location on the bottom of the chassis to help drain it seven better. Your AC depending on where you live and how humid it is will collect more water on a humid day than a dry day and also the effenciancy will be worse on a humid day.

I have a haier window ac unit model hw05ca12, it doesnt appear to have a drain hole. Is this correct? Do I need to manually drill a hole in the bottom of the unit?

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.

Unable to locate the drainage for condensed water. I could look inside and see that water is accumulating at the bottom. Feddlers AEJ12E7AG, window unit. Thank you

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.

Ac is tilted out but water still drains in

Look on the bottom back of the unit for the drain hole is probably clogged, use a piece of wire to unplug it.

Water leaks out all over the floor from the window air conditioner

you need to make sure of two things.

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.

hope this helps

Kenmore AC 58067081. Have water draining out front. Think it's clogged, but where are the drain holes. Nothing in manual... I've taken off the front grill, and shop vac'd up the water sitting in the bottom...

If you can slide the unit out, there is a drain tube or drain hole from the front tray under the coil that directs the water into the rear of the unit to drain out the hole. That tube needs to be blown out or flushed. It's most likley plugged. You only need to add the drain pipe if you want to direct the drain water away from where it drips now.

It seems it's collecting water in the tray and blowing it out through the top vent, dripping from the bottom inside the house and is making a sound constantly like the fan is hitting water as it blows.

AC units do take the humidity out of the air and water collects in the bottom. The unit should be tilted slightly downward on the outside so that the water runs outrside. Make sure the drain holes are clear. The pinging noise is common, the fan is hitting drops of water, nothing to be concerned about

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.

Haier AC HWR10xc6

Haier Air Conditioners do not have a drain hole or hose like most A/Cs. This problem can easily be solved by carefully drililng about an 1/8 or 1/4 inch hole in the bottom outside edge directly on the metal frame, around the cooling fins.... This will elt the water drain out...if you when outside and looked in while it was spitting you would see the water pooling up in there. Haier expects us to mount these units at an ungodly angle to drain the water, but drilling a small hole will help (really anywhere in that bottom plate would work since the whole bottom is a "drain pan"
