Depends on the unit. you will probably have to slide it out of its case and clean the outside part . there should be a hose that goes from the inside to the outside for the water to go out. this hose may be clogged, trapping the water inside. as i always say a picture of the unit always helps so i can identify it and tell you what to do to try and fix the problem.
email the pics to [email protected]

Hello, first make sure the unit is tilted back in the window about 1/4 inch to help the condensate flow to the back of the unit. If the unit has a drain it will be under the unit usually toward the back near the condenser. Some window units do not have drains, instead they use the condenser fan blade to scoop up the condensate and splash the condenser to keep it cool and evaporate the condensate. So if you do not see a drain plug on the bottum the unit it does not have one.
The fan blade sounds like its hitting the shroud for some reason. Sounds like you need to take it out of the case and clean the rear coil. The rear coil gets all stopped up with dirt, etc. You can wash it out but if you do be very careful not to get the motor wet. Unplug it when you are cleaning it out and let it dry out for an hour or so before you plug it back up.
First off, my model # is Emerson Quiet Kool 10HW42K. No it is not yet solved, however I am reaching out to a number of sources. Was hoping to get a simple answer since it is not a "repair" problem, but rather a "replacement problem". I am looking for another AC that will fit the original sleeve.
An air conditioner of this type always has standing water sitting in the base-tray of the machine as it's running. They're designed to work that way.
However, if the unit leans slightly in toward the inside of your house, then the water in the tray can be deeper than it should and/or add extra humidity to the inside air.
These units are designed to be installed so that they lean slightly to the _outside_ of the window or wall-hole where they are mounted. This way the standing water drains off to the ground outside and isn't so deep on the inside of the unit that it adds too much humidity to the inside air.
Check the mounting of this unit to make sure it leans slightly toward the outside. Also verify that any notch or drain hole on the outside end of the unit, intended to guide draining water, is not clogged with debris (which could also cause the standing water in the unit to be at too high a level).
Also verify that the "vent" is closed, if this unit is equipped with said vent opening. An open vent panel can allow humid outside air inside as the unit is running.
Hope this helps! ;)
