I own one of your smaller in-window air conditioners. It is it's 2nd summer. Last summer, it drained all summer from little pipe on the back. This year, it doesn't drain at all. I checked and the drain pipe is clear. Is this alright or should I worry that it is mal-functioning? It's cooling power seems to be the same.

Re: Working right and in a safe manner?
The condensation has to be going somewhere if not out the drain tube, if unit is working correctly, just hope it's not running down inside your window frame and rotting something. Keep looking, I would.

The water is being removed from the air, you need to empty the water out of the unit as needed, sometimes as often as every two hours, the beeping is a water tank full alarm telling you to empty the tank as per instructions, there is a drain plug on the bottom of the unit you may want to move the unit to a drain until you know the amount of water the tank holds so you know how big of a containor to use
Hi, what is going on is the unit is working good so you will have condensation running down the front of the indoor coil. You will have a trough at the bottom that has collected dirt over the winter and has clogged up the drain. Some window units have a small supple clear hose attached to one end of the coil that may be plugged up, or this unit has what we call weep holes around it starting at the inside edges on each corner and around the out side. Go outdoors and look and see if you see a hose or very small holes that are plugged up. If the hose/if there is one, try and blow it out. What is happening, is the blade from the fan motor is picking up the water and slinging it into the home. Yes, you can solve this once you find how it drains and where it drains. Take a good strong light inside to check the front and see if indeed there is a hose. Keep me posted on this and I hope that I have led you in the right direction to solve this, and I am sure I have. Please let me know. Sincerely, Shastalater7
