Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

My window unti is dripping water inside the bedroom room.

\015 I was told the consensation motor? was tore up on it and that was why it was leaking/dripping water inside my bedroom. The unit was unit was tilted and sat correctly in the window. my uncle even drilled a hole in the back of it outside to let water run out and it still ran out the front on the sides inside the bedroom. I had to make a gutter thing for it out of some plastic and duck tape to let water run into a bucket. My contraption was ugly , but it worked last summer. Any ideas on how to fix this please. The unit cools great and i would not like to soend money on new a/c unit if this can be fixed....\015

I have a Panasonic 11,500 BTU Window A/C for my bedroom. It does not condense any water on humid days and the thermostat keeps cycling on/off. The model is CW-XC120VK. My living room model compressor is on constantly trying to make up for the larger model and I can see the water dripping out the back. The compressor on the big one does come on, but just then shuts off and my bedroom temperature rises above the set 23C. This is a two year old model. Help!
