Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

CW-XC243HU A/C Water Spray

\015 I have water spraying out of the fan side of the unit which appears to be thrown by the fan due to water not draining from the base pan. I tilted unit back but this did not solve the problem. Please offer any advice you may have to solve this problem. Thanx!\015

Answers :

I would believe your problem maybe caused by lint or other material plugging up the fine fins of the inside of the condenser. Once you are able to see past the condenser(rear) fan blade, all the fins should be as visible as the exterior ones. The A /C unit needs to be removed from the wall/window to remove all the exterior cabinet screws or some may simply pull out of a sleeve to check for this. The shroud around the condenser & screws holding the condenser to the base need to be removed. It may then be able to swing it slightly away from the base to enable you to wire brush the lint down & away from the soft fins &/or wash it out with a water hose, do not kink the tubing. Fins can easily bend & cut. The fan blade could be re-mounted, if it was loose, at this time & it would sit somewhere half way inside the shroud. Once the condenser & shroud are remounted the fan blade should spin freely
Hi,\015\012It 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

I have a 1 year old haier room air conditioner. Cools very well, but now is spraying cold water out of the vents. I have removed the housing and cleaned the inside out quite well, but it still sprays water.

Kenmore AC 58067081. Have water draining out front. Think it's clogged, but where are the drain holes. Nothing in manual... I've taken off the front grill, and shop vac'd up the water sitting in the bottom (probably 2 cups of water!), and sprayed water up into the bottom of the ac.

I have a goldstar air conditioner model R0801E that starts spraying water from the fan outlet after it has run for approximately 1 hour.
