Water won't drain out of the unit during high humidity

I have a rental house with 3 window units all purchased in the last year. They are all slanted towards the outside but seem to hold a lot of water.
Is there a drain plug or somewhere that lets the water drain outside? They are new so ther aren't dirty. I just don't see how they are supposed to drain.

Mcdevito75 here Yes they are suppose to drain from the part that is out the window, double chek the bottom of the A/C unit for a clear drain hole in the section of the unit that is outside the window.

I have water drips from the filter on my dometic ac. Then when you change the settings or turn unit off it drains more water. I noticed a lot of condensation in the area of the coil foam housing


Sounds like unit is too small or there is too high of humidity. An A/C unit draws water out of the air as it absorbs the heat from the room. If the room is too big or there is too high of humidity the evaporator will freeze the moister and ice will build up then it will drip when turned off as the ice melts. As a fix, You can get a bigger unit, use a dehumidifier ( which works the same as A/C), or start the A/C at a warmer temp.and turn down gradually as air moisture disappears.

Hello, most window units to not drain the condensate, the fan blade picks up the condensate and pushes it on the condenser, since the condenser is hot it evaporates the condensate. That is the sloshing sound you are hearing and is normal when humidity is high.

Yes, you get a lot of water from the condensate that accumulates on the air handler finns. My house unit during the summer generates a gallon in two hours during the hot summer months. The water run off is dependent on the humidity.

the humidity problem is from the condesation drain. It is more than likely to be clogged up keeping water in the condensation pan causing the humidity problem. This can be cured by a wet vac put onto the outside drain for the inside condensation pan and turned on. this removes the algae that builds up in the a/c condensation pans. Also, an a/c unit is designed to last 25 to 30 years depending on the location of the outside unit. Inside unit being an apartment, has other issues, it just may need to have some preventive maintenance done such as coil cleaned filter changed, motor oiled, etc....

My rooftop Trane A/C unit shows high humidity on the thermostat, will not cool the house during the day but cools fine at night. What could the problem be? Also, how can I lower the humidity in the house?


High humidity causes Icing of the cooling coils. Avoid constant running of the a/c. Meaning let the AC pull the house dow 2 - 3 degrees at a time.. The unit shutting off will allow the ice to melt. Make sure the drain is clear by going outside and chkg for drainage. Once the house is reasonably dehumidified the ac can be set and left on its own.

Frigidaire window unit spits water into room


To be honest with you this is a good and a bad thing. The bad thing is that it is spitting water into the room. The good thing is that the unit is running Great. The amount of humidity it is removing. is greater and faster than it can run down and off the coil. See if there is any possible way to deflect the water. i would recommend trying to attach a piece of screen door material. It will likely keep the water from going through it.

You may have a blocked drain or the filters may need cleaning..

pull the filters out of unit and clean with water.

check if the drain is working you can do this by pouring water into the drain tray if the water does not drain away the drain is blocked.

Humidity


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! ;)

Excessive water draining from portable A/C


It appears that you have changed the location of the unit, I mean have you relocated to an area whwre the humidity is high, usuallly coastal areas have high humidity.If not is there a door that is being constantly left open causing a lot of fresh high humidity air into the room
