Water pools next to air conditioner

\015 There are water pools next to the air conditioner in my room. can yu tell me what causes this?\015

Answers :

It is common on many air conditoners for water to come out of them however it should not come into your room if installed properly and working properly sometimes water can enter into a room of an air condtioner due to incorrect installation per the servive manual for your model air conditioner the back of the air conditioner should be about one half of an inch lower then then the front of your air conditoner this specific model shoud have a couple of leveling adjusters to adjust the level in some cases the leveling adjusters may need to be removed or the sill changed or modified so the correct angle of installation may be obtained I will send you the entire service manual if you will help me obtain information on the bracket for the rear filter of your air conditoner is there any writng and or numbers on such bracket what all does and does not this say on the rear bracket please send to me all of your contact information such as name address and telephone number to me please reply to me at my email address. Sincerely, Steven Bolin\015\[email protected]\015\012I am pasting with this a portion of the service manual below.To prevent vibration and noise, make sure the unit is\015\012installed securely and firmly.\015\0122.Install the unit where the sunlight does not shine directly\015\012on the unit.\015\0123.The outside of the cabinet must extend outward for at\015\012least 12" and there should be no obstacles, such as a\015\012fence or wall, within 20" from the back of the cabinet\015\012because it will prevent heat radiation of the condenser.\015\012Restriction of outside air will greatly reduce the cooling\015\012efficiency of the air conditioner.\015\012CAUTION: All side louvers of the cabinet\015\012must remain exposed to the outside of\015\012the structure.\015\0124.Install the unit a little slanted so the back is slightly lower\015\012than the front (about 1/2"). This will help force con-densed\015\012water to the outside.\015\0125.Install the unit from the bottom about 30"~60" above the\015\012floor level.

Water pools next to air conditioner


I have a roof air conditioner on my motorhome. It is leaking into my RV between the roof top and inside roof at the very front of the unit. I have pulled the upper cover and the metal cover for the evaperator. There is no water pooling anywhere, Dry as a bone. Lots of water pouring into my roof though. The Unit on roof has been sealed around the edges all the way to the top of the pan. I figured the condensation would fill up the pan then run over the edge onto the roof top. Somehow it is runnin

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

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.

Water is pooling in front of our M6X08F2A-C window air conditioner. We can't locate the drain to check if it is plugged. We installed fairly level, but think maybe the front should be higher - even if the side panels won't fit right that way. Any ideas?

I have a portable air conditioner model LP0711WNR. My issue is when I drain the air conditioner, it only drains about one cup of water. Then, when I turn it back on it and use it, after about an hour it says that the tank is full. I can hear water still in it but it won't drain out and my air conditioner won't work because of it. How can I get the tank to fully drain?
