Water dosent drain

If ya love the sound of water hitting the fan,and the conitous sound of dripping, this is the model to buy. I dont know how its suppose to drain, out the back i guess. Dont matter what angle you put the thing on..it holds water. Drain hose? nope. Take it out and manually drain it every day. ( or hour if you are so inclined, no pun intended.) Im tempted to drill a hole in it to get water to drain. ( Never buy this model, spend the extra cash on a different brand.

    Thanks for the help. The thing is now at a impossible angle..some water still happlily splashing around, though not as much. If i put it on any more of a angle it will fall outa window. forget the supports , curtains and rail tops, ya gota take em off to even come close to closeing window or fitting some kind brace around it to hold it in.I still havent seen any water come out, except when i lowered it to about 45 degrees during moveing. Not sure of degree i have it at right now, after trying several different positions,but from window which i assume is straight, the bottom of unit is 5 1/2 inches from window, top is 7 inches. Funny looking thing. quick surf of web shows a few others are complaining about it. One comment was: "The unit fills with water no matter how far you tilt it back. We've had it only a month and have had to pull it out of the window, tip it upside down to drain the water." Is this a design flaw?

Contrary to the counsel against drilling drainage holes, I did exactly that and the unit works wonderfully. Every now and then the water that drips from the top of the unit falls into the fan, but the problem is generally fixed. A normal angle, two very small drainage holes in the lowest part of the bottom of the outdoor part of the unit, and viola, problem solved. I know of another man who has a similar unit with the same problem who added a small pump system to drain the water, and it works beautifully. All in all the AC unit is good if you can resort to unconventional means of fixing small problems.

Water dripping from Friedrich Air Conditioner CP05 model annoying downstairs neighbour. Is there a drain hose for this model? Other solution?

Window unit A/C units must be mounted level side-to-side and slightly tilted down to the outside coil The condensation (water) that forms on the cooling coil drips from the coil and collects in a metal tray. The slight tilt of the case allows the water to drain toward the condenser coil and fan. The outside fan blade tip is positioned very close to the condensation water catch pan and the water is picked up by the rotating fan blade and thrown onto the condenser coil where it evaporates and accomplishes two things. This keeps water from dripping on the ground and lowers the head pressure of the system to improve the efficiency of the unit.

Hi, recently my a/c window unit starting making a water sloushing sound then started spitting ice. Is it dying?

What you are hearing is a water buildup in the drip pan under the unit. This is caused by a clogged drain hole and/or not enough downward tilt on the rear of the unit. The rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2' rear downward tilt. This allows the water to flow to the rear of the drip pan and out thru the drain hole. The spitting ice, is from the fan blades hitting the water in the drip pan. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Then check and adjust if necessary, the things I mentioned above. Aslo, be sure that the air intake filter remains clean.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My unit is throwing water out of the front vents not a lot. It sound like the fan blade is hitting water It still cools but makes a loud noise .R bordeaux

The water and noise you hear is from the fan blades hitting backed up water in the drip pan. This occurs when the drain hole near the rear of the drain pan is clogged and/or the rear of the unit does not have enough downward tilt. Which allows the water to flow freely to the drain hole. The general rule of thumb for downward tilt is 1/4" to 1/2". Correcting these to things should solve the problem. Be sure to turn the unit OFF & Unplug it, before attempting remedial service work on the unit.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Water dripping sound coming from new refridgerator

This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan. This is the only source of water if nothing else is connected. Are you seeing and water anywhere.

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

Water was dripping in bottom back of freezer. Coil was red hot and was sizzling as water hit it. Where did water come from? Never seen this before. I actually heard the dripping sound which alerted me to...

What you observed is the automatic defrost system at work. There is a heater coil (the red hot tube you saw) that comes on at various times to melt frost off of the evaporator coil. This cycle generally lasts 25-35 minutes and then the refrig will start back up and resume its normal cycle.
The water that melted off the coils drips into a drain pan under the unit and will evaporate from the heat and air movement from the compressor. Everything you expereinced is normal and nothing to worry about. thanks Peyton...
