Re: My Air conditioner leaks water
All A/C units drain water and need a clear path to drain water. If window unit the unit MUST lean to the outside so the condensation water can drain that direction and insure the drain hole is clear of debree. If an indoor central a/c unit the drain must be clogged the unit is leaning away from drain or the pipe going to the drain is clogged somewhere as it exits house. Cant drain if doesn't have a clear path to do it's job. Doubt it's a problem with the brand.

It from all you said, it sounds like it's condensation dripping from the cooling coils. They are probably dirty and therefore the condensation is not evaporating like it should. Also, the air intake filter may be dirty or clogged.
Since you don't have an owner's manual, locate the model number of your unit and then go online to Sears Parts Central. Armed with the model number you will be able to locate the Owner's Manual and download and print it for future reference. It alone, will prove invaluable.
Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.
There could be a built-in reservoir to catch condensation, have you emptied it yet? There could be a small drain that could connect to a hose to drain away the condensation, do have one? You'll need to do some investigation to see exactly what you have and where it's leaking from.
Any time you have an HVAC problem the best solution is to call a qualified tech. While many problems (and quite possibly this one) aren't that hard to fix the repair cost if you screw something up can be very high. My disclaimer out of the way, here you go: the condensate (water) is not draining properly. This is either because your pump (if you have one) isn't working, the drain line is clogged (most likely), the gravity drain has been knocked around and feeds back into the furnace, or something more sinister (crack in the evaporator coil pan, for instance). If you have a pump (you'll see PVC running into it and vinyl tubing running out, make sure it's plugged in and the lines are not clogged or kinked. If you have a gravity drain try disconnecting it and blowing it out and making sure it always runs downhill, even if only a little. Other than that, call the HVAC service guys. Good Luck
Can you feel up wards of the water to see if its coming from your vents?Possible drain clog.In the cowl fresh air is pulled in for your air conditioner.Rain and snow get in thru there too and are drained out the bottom.Open your hood and look at the area where the heater hoses go in,near the bottom of the housing is the drain.When you clean it out don't push in the hole to far so you don't pierce the condenser or heater core.The only other thing that I can think of for a leak would be the windshield seal.
on the passenger side floor?? it is one of two things 1 drain tube for air conditioner is plugged up is an easy fix find the tube on the right hand side firewall and blow into the tube with an air compressor to clear the tube or the heater core is leaking
