    I have this problem with my A/C unit draining between my window seal and my storm window. My unit is about 6 yrs. old. How do I go about cleaning this unit so it will drain properly and also, where is the location of the drain where the water should come out? In installing this unit, I made sure it was tilted a whole bubble using a carpenter level.

Hi, If this is a new unit I would check the filter first and make sure it is clean. Also check and make sure it is slightly tilted to the outside. If its an older unit it probably needs cleaned. Window units naturally create water in the evaporator area. The water is suppose to drain to the back of the unit to the condensing area where the slinger ring on the condenser fan blade slings it into the condenser coil making it more efficient. There is usually a drain hole to drain excess water from the back of the unit. Any dirt in the pathway of this water or the wrong tilt will cause water to build up and drip or blow out the front. Anything touching the evaporator coil allowing water to run down the obstacle into the wrong area will cause the same thing. reduced air flow will cause the evap to freeze which could also cause a water problem.

Water leaks from the wall unit after it works on a cooling cycle for a short time. Seems there is no provision for the water to be piped away. The wall unit is situated on a dividing wall between two...

That unit was not designed to be installed on an "interior" dividing wall between two rooms. Only on an exterior wall. There in lies the problem.

Water is leaking out the front of the unit

Water is a normal byproduct of the refrigeration process, Just like a glass of icewater has condensation on the outside of the glass.

The unit is designed to run the water outside. Check the slant of the unit, if it slants inside water will not exit outside..needs slight downward tip towards the outside.

Also check that the drain system is not plugged.

Angle your unit so the back is lower than the front and the water will run out the drain hole on the bottom.

Leaks water into room

Try tilting the a/c to the back. In most cases the manfacture will seguest that the unit be tilted to the back slightely (no more that 20 degrees). That is what I would try. If that dont fix it let me know and we will try together and solve this problem. Good luck

K-1357 kohler whirlpool tub there is leaking only when the tub is filled and drained. when taking showers there are no leaks. this unit has been recently installed within the last week

You say that it doesn't leak during showers. The next step is to plug the drain 100% so no water will drain thru the drain assembly. Fill the unit up to just below the overflow drain and leave overnight to see if it could be leaking from the outside of the drain plug assembly or leaking from the jets/drain from the whirlpool feature. If was just recently installed was it professionally installed. Should be covered by warranty.Try this then if its not determined what the cause we will go to the next level of investigating what it could be.in it peak all around to see where the water is comming from. Use a flashlite so your not kneeling in mosture with a electrical light in your hand!!! Good Luck!

Air condition cleaning

hi! there,
if your unit is almost five years from now,its more convenient to have a maintenance schedule every two to three time a year,if this a windows type,cleaning of ac unit mostly the eveporator and condenser should free from dust,upon installing,the a/c unit should be eleveted down on condenser,the tray should have a drain with hose to drip the water outside your room,so that water will not leak on your light,see this may cause electrical fault resulted on burning.have always clean the filter.try to inform the maintenance crew to elevate the condenser portion down gradually so that water will drip outside the room.have anice day,don't forget get to rate me,and thank's a lot.

Zoneline Airconditioning - Winterizing and drain line

Yes this will recycle the room and can be cover outside if it is not a heat pump and will use elec heat strips to heat. As long as it is tilled toward the back the water will run out the back without a drain kit there should also be a drain hole in the bottom.
