Question about Haier Heating & Cooling
Hello, some window units do not have a drain hole for the condensate, instead the use the fan blade to sling the water on the condenser, since the condenser is warm/hot it will evaporate the condensate.

I have the same air conditioner and have call Haier customer support and they are also unable to tell me where the drain is. The manual says not to drill holes in the trap but I think that is the only option.

If you are certain you can't find the drain hole, you can carefully drill a 1/4" drain hole in the drip pan, about 2' from the rear of the pan. Because water is involved, using a cordless drill is the best and safest way to do it. Turn the AC unit OFF and unplug it, before attempting to drill the hole. Be very careful when drilling the hole, as you want to just penetrate the drip pan's bottom and not go to far and damage the mechanicals above the drip pan. However, without the proper 1/4' to 1/2" tilt at the rear, the water will not flow to the drain hole as it should.
If it means putting a 1/2 block of wood in the window channel, under the unit, to raise it up enough, to be able to tilt it down at the rear. Do it.
Hope this helped you & thanks for using FixYa.

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.

there are 3 drain holes in the primary pan right underneath the evaporator that need to be clean with a pipe cleaner or a wire of somekind and there is also a secondary drain behind it that will work only if the unit is 100% level. To access the primary drain pan you have to take all the screws of the back cover 5 on each side and 3 in the center above the electric cord and behind the air filter and only then will you be able to see these very small holes. Use a flashlight to make sure. Have fun!Reply
