Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Rattling noises and blowing water (goldstar WG5005R)

\015 We bought this ac unit a little over a month ago. Recently it has started making rattling noises and blowing out water where the cool air comes out. We've had a LOT of rain this last week so I don't know if that is the problem? I cleaned the filter but that didn't seem to help...\015\012\015\012Thanks to anyone who has some suggestions...\015

Answers :

If the unit is new and tilted enough toward the outside, the rain should not be a factor as far as water blowing out. It will make some rattling noises on the outside more so when its raining or high humidity because the outside fan throws water onto the condenser coil. Sounds like to me that its not draining to the outside.. It shouldn't be dirty enough for the drain paths to be filled with crud. Tilting it more to the outside should fix it. Hope this helps.\015\012kstfas
I have the same problem. I can't get the water to drain. I almost have to trun it on its side to get the water out. ONce it fills up, the fan splashes on the water accumulated inside. I bought two drill bits to drill holes in the bottom. I thought I would get an answer here, but it seems to me that the best solution is to drill the hole. I suggest you get a thin metal bit to make the guide hole, and then a bigger one to finish it off. The thing you need to be most careful about is not puncturing a freon line. If you do that, you might as well toss it. I would even consider opening up the unit, and drilling from the inside out to avoid piercing a line or accidentaly hurting something else.

I have a goldstar air conditioner model R0801E that starts spraying water from the fan outlet after it has run for approximately 1 hour. I have checked the drain and it is not plugged, nor is there any obstruction to it, I have in fact drilled a hole into the 'formed' drain channel on the bottom which leads to the drain nipple located on one back corner. i have tried tilting the unit in order that gravity might assist and it still blows water enough that i can't use it or it will ruin the wall,


Seems i have the problem resolved by doing the following:\015\012\015\012increasing the thermostat setting from 25* C to 29*C, this will reduce the load on the cooling condenser,\015\012ensuring that the vent is set for 'fresh' as o ... Goldstar Air Conditioners

My recently May 3rd, 2010 purchased LG LWHD1009R Air Conditioner runs very well and cools great. Noise is not bad at lowest fan setting which is all I need really. My only complaint is the rattle buzzing type noise coming from the Air Intake or the Inlet Grille in the front of the AC. When you lower it the noise and rattle stop and the AC keeps running great. When I put it back up and connect both sides the rattle returns. I notice that if I put it back up but only connect one of the 2 prongs

I have a 2001 Lincoln Navigator, There is a leak somewhere in the AC, so I understand that's why it no longer blows cold air. What I can't figure out it this. The AC/heater will rarely blow through the vents. I have to be stopped, turn the system off, then press the vent button. As soon as I step on the gas pedal it blows through the defrost again. Also I often get a noise that sounds like a faint horn until I step on the gas. There is a plug I can unplug under the hood to get the noise to
