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! ;)

I am finding that the plasma cool ACW600C is leaking a lot of water


air conditions work by removing the humidity from the room air
very humid air will cause a lot of condensation in the evaporator section especially if you have it set below 25 c
keep all doors and windows closed to prevent fresh air bringing in more humid air as that makes it hard for the ac to work efficiently

My Holmes HM630 humidifier doesn't get up to 40% it levels out 33-34%. How do I get it up to 40-50% air humidity level?


, this cool mist tower is ideal for medium rooms. It provides a refreshingly cool, invisible mist, as well as a digital humidistat which offers precise humidity control for your optimal comfort.

I got this off the Sears website so either the room you're trying to make humid is too large, or the humidistat needs to be set properly. Also make sure there is plenty of water in the tank.

Only recently my portable heller air conditioner is oosing out buckets of water each night. does it mean it finished and needs replacement,


Portable air conditioners cool the air, and in so doing, dehumidify the air. The "buckets" of water are coming from the humid air in your environment, so you need to do things that will reduce humidity, of be prepared to empty the condensate receptacle fairly often.

Using a small room, closing doors and windows to the room you want cooled, avoiding cooking or heating water, reducing the frequency of people walking into/out of the room and limiting the number of people in the room will all help in reducing, and keeping low, the ambient humidity.

Why is a brand new in wall ac not dehumidifying room


could be to small for room or could be to big for room. It the unit is too big it will cool the room down to fast and shut off to soon, this will not remove the humidity. Try running the unit on a lower temperature the slower the fan the colder the coil which will remove more humidity from room also make sure the fresh air vent is closed and not bringing humidity from out side.

I have small window air conditioner from golstar and its making bubbleing sounds in the back from water should i take black rubber water seal from back and release extra water it is very humid today or...


Hi there, if it is building condensation up and making that noise do to the humidity, it will not hurt the unit to remove the seal to drain it at all. I have had people go as far as drilling a few holes to let it drain, no harm will come to your unit, trust me.

Water tank fills up every 3hrs


The amount of water that is getting extracted from the air in the room is based on how humid the air is. The good news is your unit is really getting quite a bit of moisture out of the air and as such, is working well to cool your room.

It is working as designed. You may want to see if you can connect a hose to a drain port (if yours has that included) to let the unit room longer without the need to drain the condensate (water) every 3 or so hours.

Hope this helps and best regards!

Water not draining out the back


Humidity is where the water comes from. If humidity is low, very little if any, water.
