Water Leaking

Dear Customer,
The likely reasons for a leaking AC are...
1) Improperly installed.
A window air conditioner must be slightly lower at the rear than the front. This allows the water being removed from the room to drain to the back of the machine. A difference of one inch is sufficient. This is always the first thing to check. Many are improperly installed in the haste to get relief from the heat. If installed too low at front the water will flow into the room rather than outside. If installed too low at rear, water can roll out front edges before has chance to exit towards rear drain.


  1. Icing up.
    Water being de-humidified can turn to ice if there are problems with the cooling system. There are many reasons for an air conditioner to produce ice. Remove front grille while machine is operating. If ice is present on the cooling coil you will probably need service. For more information see our other article: Why window Air Conditioners Ice up.


  1. Air leakage around air conditioner.
    If warm air is able to enter around the air conditioner it will encounter cooler, dryer air. When they meet condensation will occur. If water leaking from front of air conditioner inspect to see if dripping from body of machine, or water droplets clinging to front area. To test, operate machine for 30 minutes and then use flashlight to check under front edge of base. Small water droplets here indicate an air leakage problem. Add foam insulation to stop warm air from infiltrating.


  1. Drain hole blocked.
    Rear of air conditioner base has a drain hole or groove to allow water to escape. If becomes blocked water can back up. To test, operate machine for 30 minutes and then inspect if draining properly. If appears blocked use a small piece of wood to open drain hole at rear of metal base. CAUTION: Never be tempted to drill holes into the air conditioner body to relieve water pooling. Severe damage can result.


  1. Internal drains blocked.
    There are small passageways that allow water to drain from front of air conditioner to the rear. If they become blocked water will pool at front of machine and overflow onto floor. If this happens the air conditioner will require removal from window and servicing.


  1. Outside temperature too cold.
    This occurs at end of cooling season. If outside temperatures drops below 60 degrees Fahrenheit at night the cooling coil may ice up. If no leakage at bedtime but water in front of machine in morning, suspect this problem. If this problem suspected turn off machine before bedtime and restart as day warms. Alternately, operate machine at night with selector switch in ‘fan only’ position. This will circulate room air during night but not allow cooling.
Hope u find this useful. I'll be thankful if u could rate this. thank you.

Ice builds up just inside

Unit needs to be cleaned. When unit and filter is dirty , air can not get through. It needs to be blown out with air compressor, or, you can even hose it out. ( IF HOSING NEED TO PROTECT ELECTRONICS TO NOT GET WET.) after hosing, then let completely dry, help dry time by using air compressor, to blow out excess water. Then fire that baby up as long as dry and should cool and not freeze. If it still freezes up, then it still not getting good air flow. Thanks Mike from fixya

Robin, I feel for you guys. I have a daughter stationed in Iraq . With all that you have attempted, the first thing that comes to my mind is Sand Storms.

Samsung AQ12FAN, indoor unit starts on it's own, and stops after a few seconds.

Hi, It could be that the motor for the device needs to "warm up". Everytime it stops the internal thermostat sees that the target temperature has not been reached so it starts the internal motor again. This happens in a cycle until the motor gets warmed up or the target temperature is reached. This is my hypothesis. So, you might need to get the devices's motor checked out. Thank you.

My Samsung AQ12UGQN Split Unit heating has all 3 lights flashing green!

Either the new control board is faulty, or the connections are bad, or the issue is somewhere else. The main problem is that you are not an air conditioning / heating engineer. Some things are not home owner fixable.
