Water leaking out the front right edge of the case.

the window unit should be 'slanted' (just slightly) to the rear so that the condensation water can drain out the back of the unit.
Check and make sure the drain hole is open and not clogged too.

I have 2 Samsung AW0700/XAA air conditioners that leak water all over floor. We've tried tipping them to get water out but didn't work. How do we stop leak?

inside the unit on the left side of the evaporator coil there should be a channel that allows the water to drain to the outside of the unit and cool the condenser coil use compressed air to clean this channel (a.k.a. keyboard cleaner) were safty glasses and make sure unit is unplugged then check drain to make sure it is clear before running the unit.

I have a AW06ECB Window Air Conditioner Unit that is not draining water. It is holding it in the bottom pan. I don't see a drain pipe or hole on the bottom of this unit for it to drain either. Any...

Hello, most window units will not have a drain to remove the condensate. Instead they use the fan blade to sling the condesnate on the condenser and since the condenser is warm/hot it will evaporate it. Also, when the humidity is elevated there will be more water at the bottum of the drain pan.

Bad smell from samsung windows a/c

The odor is probably from a moisture build up. Also cleaning or changing the filter will help. Be sure to check the drain pan to make certain it's not clogged and the water can drain away.

Leaking water

mcdevito75 here, The portion of the a/c unit that goes outside the window is the evaporator and suppose to leak water, check the drain hole in the unit floor on the outside portion of the unit, reach this drain hole thru another window or have your local a/c repair shop look at it, they come to the house.

Split unit. blows condensed air/water out early in the morning? I have check the gas pressure with is 150psi It is the only unit that has this problem and I have five of them throughout the house.

Check to make sure the unit is tilted enough to drain the water out the back. If the tilt is at least 3-5 degrees toward the outside make sure the water can drain from the cooling coil to the rear coil (plugged drain circuit?)

I have a samsung 1300 btu,theres a stinky stale water damp smell comin from the air an i noticed that the air conditioner does leak that much water,where is it goin

verify that the drain coming out of the back of the unit is clear, and make sure that the unit is pitched downhill to the outside, you can safely spray some bleach water in a spray bottle on the front of the indoor coil, that will ehlp with the smell after you get the drain cleaned,( you may also have some build up on the indoor coil. I would take the unit outside and thoroughly wash it.

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.
