Either the unit is really dirty or it is low on refrigerant. A unit tha is low on refrigerant will start off cold and withing a few minutes, start warming up. If you aren't seeing any water its because of one or both causes listed.

My Fujitronic FA1050 Portable Air Conditioner says it is full of water after being in use for 1 hour (which makes it blow warm air until I empty the water). There are two drain ports on the unit, one close to the floor, one about 6 inches higher. The user manual says I should be draining water from the higher drain port, and only emptying the water from the lower drain port at the end of the season. When the unit says "Water is full", I open the upper drain port, and no water comes out. I then o

We purchased a Whirlpool portable air conditioner in 2005 from Best Buy. Near the end of last summer the air conditioner started leaking water. We started using it again this season and it is still leaking. When my husband drained the water out of it, the water came out of the upper part of the back side of the air conditioner and no water was coming out of the drain at the bottom. When it appeared to be empty, we plugged it in and used it again and it continued to leak water on our carpet.


Check to see if the drain is blocked by particles/debris of any type. Also make sure that the unit is level--as level as possible. I have my Whirlpool Portable AC in 4 inch bed risers so I can drain it really easily. I slip under a small low rise p ... Whirlpool Air Conditioners

After running the A/C for a couple of hours and after a period of rain, I took the air conditioner out of the window. Probably one or two pints of water emptied on the floor. there is an open vent on top of the box on the outdoor side and no visable way to drain water. How do I eliminate the water problem? Thanks, Steve

I have a portable air conditioner and the water condensation tank fills in about 4 hours of constant use.

We are getting water leaking inside the window. The unit is slanted enough that is should be draining outside, not in. Is there something that needs to be emptied and how is it accessed? I am not sure what to do at this point.


The slant is probably correct, but the drain hole in the drain pan, under the rear of the unit is clogged. Finding it can be a challenge at times, as the clog will blend in with the drain hole. Be patient and persistent and you'll find it. A pipe cle ... Haier Air Conditioners
