Drain pan fills quickly

I have a Fedders portable AC model A6PO952BCOM. The water from the drain pan needs to be released every hour.I used the AC all last summer and only had to drain it 3 times all summer. Any suggestions to fix this problem would be appreciated. Thank You

    Water drains and fills up every hour

  • faatimam Jul 25, 2008

    The first summer I had the ac, I only had to drain it once at the end of summer when I was putting it away. Last summer and this summer I am having to drain the water every hour or so. Also, the coils are icing up.

I have a Haier Portable AC HPY08XCM. Its draining from the bottom onto the carpet. I put a pan under it but it fills up overnight and overflows. I checked drain plug and it seems clear. Help please?

Check the coils for dust build up. As the ac works, it condenses atmospheric moisture and drains through the coil. If dust is built up it can divert the water. Dirty refrigerators will do this as well when the drain pan gets dirty. The dust forms a barrier that allows the water to run off the edge instead of into the pan where it can evaporate.

Haier portable AC water collection tank full in one hour.

My unit was working fine for a couple years but now it won't evaporate. It still cools fine but it also collects about 16 ounces of water every hour and then shuts itself off until I drain it. I'm wondering it the evaporative mechanism it broken some how.

Why is my lg portable ac leaking water from bottom of unit

I posted the answer as a comment but the problem is the drain pan is under the cold radiator which is on top and it drains over the hot radiator which in turn drains into the pan that will hold water. When the top pan gets jammed up from lent then it drains down the other side of the hot radiator and it goes all over the floor. See the comments I put on the first answer. I posted this because I too bought a brand new Automotive aluminum pan until I figured this out

I would like a manual for this portable airconditioner. I need to llnow if I neede to drain the water from this unit?

Since you didn't mention who the manufacturer is and the model number, it makes it a little difficult. But, most all portable AC units drain the same way. There's a drain plug on the back of the unit, just above floor level. It may have a door cover over it, so you will have to remove it first, to access the drain plug.

There are 2 ways to drain the unit. Use a shallow sided pan, capable of holding 1 quart of water or roll the unit to a floor drain or outside, before removing the drain plug. The Drain Plug screws out. If you drain theunit into a pan, turn the unit OFF & Unplug it first.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Fedders AC leaking water from front, older model was in storage. Cant find the manual to make sure it's installed proper, or see if we need to clean somehting out. It leaks when it's running, then...

The unit needs to be tilted down 1/4/" to 1/2" on the outside of the window. Also check the drain pan's drain hole, under the unit (outside the window) for clogs. Doing all of this should solve the problem.

My amcor air conditioner is leaking water all over the floor. I drain it and it will only last less then 24 hours till it turns off, leaks all over an needs to be drained. Help!

I figured out the problem. My Amcor portable started leaking after the fill light came on for the first time in years. After doing some research I saw that it uses the water to cool some other part of the system to evaporate out the exhaust. So I took the ******* apart and messed with things. Finally I started pouring water into different trays and noticed it would not drain down from the top tray even when running. So I removed the top part and found the drain hole. Blasted that sum ***** with some compressed air and WAMMO it works again.

MODEL CPRD12HX7-Q THE UNIT WILL NOT TURN ON AND...

I have the same model and if you have been running the dehumidifier the internal water tank will fill with condensate water. You will need to unplug the black plug (in back of unit) to release the pints of water it has accumulated in the tank. Be sure to have a pan under the plug as it will drain immediately. Do not tip the portable unit if you need to put in a shower stall to drain, as water will leak out of the internal water tank into your unit. Hope this helps.
