Air conditioner leaking

\015 I have a Sharp AF-S120FX air conditioner. I've had it about a year. Just recently, it started leaking water on the inside of the house. It is tilted the right way, so water should drain to the outside, but still, it drips on the inside. I've read solutions where it says the drains are clogged and to clear them--but where are they? How do I find the drain pipe? I have removed the front grill and taken off the filter and just see a silver grill. Where do I go to find the drain pipes so that I may unclog them?\015\012\015\012Thank you.\015

Hi, There are no pipes, just passage ways on a window unit. It probably needs cleaned. Window units naturally create water in the evaporator area. The water is suppose to drain to the back of the unit through passage ways to the condensing area where the slinger ring on the condenser fan blade slings it into the condenser coil making it more efficient. There is usually a drain hole to drain excess water from the back of the unit. Any dirt or algae in the pathway of this water or the wrong tilt will cause water to build up and drip or blow out the front. Anything touching the evaporator coil allowing water to run down the obstacle into the wrong area will cause the same thing. reduced air flow will cause the evap to freeze which could also cause a water problem. Since the tilt is right and it doesn't seem to be freezing, Maybe a temporary increase in tilt and a dropper of bleach at the base of the evaporator would do it. This will kill the algae and may unblock the water flow. NOTE: It may also cause stains on a carpet or floor if the bleach water drips onto it. If you want to pull it out and clean it, most units can be pulled out of the housing and sprayed with a water hose but you need to be careful not to get water in the electrical parts of the unit. They can be covered with plastic or foil. Make sure you unplug the unit before trying to remove it. You may have to remove some screws to remove it from the housing. Hope this has helped.\015\012kstfas

My 3-year old LG air-conditioner was leaking water. So i called some 'experts' to come fix it. This is the first time I called for maintenance service on the air conditioner. The 'experts' dismantled some parts of the air-conditioner and washed out a lot of dirt and sticky stuff. After they put the air-conditioner back, there was no more water leaking but I noticed 2 new problems. When I switch on the air conditioner, the mouth does not immediately swing open, it takes about 3 minutes before it

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

Hi, Our Mitsubishi Air Conditioner is leaking from the bottom left hand corner. The conditioner will sometimes run for 1hr then start leaking, or a few hours then start leaking. We're aware it could be a blockage (gecko, frog or wasp nest), so we have put a cord up the water pipe from the ground. It seems to stop where the pipe would bend toward the air conditioner, at the top. Would you know if there is any other reason for the leaking. Or would you know, how do we check for a blockage in the t


Two ways to clear out the pipe. One way is to take a wet/dry shop vac and **** from the outside drain pipe. The second way is a bit messier. Take an air hose (from a compressor) and purge the air up the drain a few times. Works like a dream! ... Mitsubishi Air Conditioners

Hello - I have a heater/air conditioner; when I run the air conditioner it blows water and leaks water into the house.

My Intertherm model 018 air conditioner leaks from the a-coil the pan is not clogged or overflowing. I have had the motor replaced twice as the drip from the a-coil has shorted out the motor both times.

My air conditioner has started leaking and has very poor air flow. It worked fine in winter but when I switched it to cool water is coming out of it. Sometimes the fan will work (no cold air) for about 20 minutes before it starts to leak, other times it leaks straight away. Any help appreciated.
