Window A/C - no apparent drain holes for the condensate tray ?

Installed the window A/C - works perfectly, but the water in the condensate tray isn't draining anywhere - just collecting in the tray. Every other a/c we've had did have a drain hole and the water was eliminated thru the drain. We've reviewed the manual and instructions and cannot find any information on this subject.

We could just drill a hole in the tray and let the water out, but we would have thought it would have been built in or at least instructed us to drill hole (s) in the tray. Please advise and thank you.

On most new units, the water left in the tray is picked
up by the fan motor blade which kind of cools the unit down.

On some models there is a round hole on the bottom left hand corner on the back of the unit. Really hard to
get a fitting between condensor coil and frame,but it
can be done. However the manufactuer will usually state if a drain has to be run if it is needed

Our A/C unit when running, the drain water isn now backing up and leaking over the side in our basement. we've never had this problem before.

Hello, this usually indicates a clogged condensate line or cracked condensate pan. Try using a wet/dry by attaching one end of it to the otlet of the comdensate line, the suction pressure should dislodge the clog. If the line appears clean the the pan is cracked and will require a technician to come out and fix it.

MY AC IS SHOOTING WATER

It's normal for ACs to produce condensation but for a window unit, they need to be installed to allow the liquid condensate to drain outside the room. If it has just started doing this, it's likely that the drain holes are clogged with debris or mold so the water builds up until it can be ejected by the fan.

My GE window unit air conditioner isn't blowing out very cool air,and it spits what

From what you have described, it sounds like the drip pan under the unit is full of water. This can be caused by the unit not being installed properly in the window. It must have 1/4' to 1/2" downward tilt at the rear. This allows the water in the drip pan, to flow to the rear and drain away thru the drain hole. Also, the drain hole may be clogged and needs to be cleared. The drain hole can be a challenge to find sometimes, as the clog can blend in with the hole. Be patient and persistent when looking for the drain hole. A pipe cleaner can be used to clear it.

I hope this helps and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Where is the drain hole on my frederich quietmaster wall air conditioner?

Hello, if there is no drain hole under the unit then it uses the fan blade to sling water on the condenser to evaporate the condensate. Some window units are made this way instaed of using a drain hole.

Need to know if I can connect a drain hose/tube to my air conditioner model # FAX054-P7A1. I'm having a problem with water collecting in the window sill/track

Hello, the first thing is make sure the AC is tilted a bit in the window, if it is level the water will collect toward the front of the unit and drip inside. Second if there is a drain hole on tne unit then you can connect a hose to it and let it drain. However if there is no drain hole then the unit uses tne fan blade to splash the water on the condenser and since the condenser is warm/hot it will condense the water.

The model # of my new Haier 5,000BTU window AC isn't in your extensive list. It's HWF05XCK-T. It's clearly not draining as it's begun to spit water out the front and make that ping-ing...

Hi, normally they have a very small gutter type track indoors below the indoor coil. It should have what is called weep holes at either end for the condensation to run off. I have seen this problem a lot on window units, and some people have had to go as far as drilling there own holes to get there to drain, which is crazy. Check the front very good for a trough to catch the condensation and for these weep holes I am talking about. Please let me know the out come.
Sincerely,

Unable to locate the drainage for condensed water. I could look inside and see that water is accumulating at the bottom. Feddlers AEJ12E7AG, window unit. Thank you

Hello, most window units evaporate the condensate by having the fan blad sling the water on the condenser. Because the condenser is warm/hot it will evaporate. You shou.d be hearing a sloshing sound after the unit has benn running for a while, this indicates that the fan blade is picking up the water from the bottum of the ac.

Water/condensation is backing up in the bottom of the unit and overflowing into the house.

The drain in the condensate drip pan is clogged. Locate it and clean it out.

Drain Hole for Frigidaire Window Air Conditioner

Leave it alone. DO NOT attempt to create a drain. As long as a window A/C unit is installed properly, (angled slightly down toward the rear) it will drain excess water over the rear lower lip of the unit should it get that high. Many models use some of the collected water/condensation. It gets lifted up by the fan blades to cool the coil.
