Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Unit filled with water -hard to drain

\015 I have the LG 12000 BTU Air conditioner, and its been working great. Recently, I noticed that when on, it would hum like the fan wanted to turn but couldnt. Being off a while fixed the problem, but it would sieze again. I live in a humid state, so when I read that you might need to drain the unit, I figured my problem is solved.\015\012\015\012However, I live on the second story of a building - and getting to that drainage pipe in the back is going to be a real pain. Is there any way I can do this without killing myself? Thanks for your help in advance.\015\012\015\012-Kaerbear\015

Answers :

Possibly its a capacitor thats faulty and not the drainage. still, the unit will have to be removed from its casset (case) to be repaired.

On my LG window AC Md. LWHD1009R, I cannot find a drain hole to let the water out.

Hello, I have a Ruud 10 seer unit in the condo i rent...it frequently stops cooling. The fan inside never shuts off, but the unit outside won't come on often enough to cool to the temp on thermostat. When the A.C. guy comes all he does is drain some water from the inside unit and it works fine for awhile. Can you explain how I can do that myself...as it's very hard to get him here. Thank you.


It sounds like the air cond is freezing up, and as he melts the ice off he evaporator coil you will have air flow again. When the evaporator, (which is the coil that absorbs the heat from your condo) is frozen over, no air flow can pass through it. ... Ruud Matching Split Air Conditioner

I have a portable air conditioner and the water condensation tank fills in about 4 hours of constant use. Is there any kind of portable water tank that I could attach to my unit that would allow me to empty the tank after overnight use rather than every 4 hours?

My portable a/c continues to leak water from the bottom when in use. I have a hose attached to the spout in the back, but it still leaves a puddle and almost nothing drains out the back. It's a sunbeam sca102rpc1, 10,000 btu model. I have the unit level on a few 2x4's off the ground, so the drain off from the spout is all down hill. but yet the unit must be leaking because the water is in a puddle at the bottom under the unit, not the drain pan.

I have a Fill-troll model 110 on a hot water boiler. The fill valve seems to allow too much water into the system (>30psi) unless I close the potable water supply valve.

I suspect that a restriction in the port to the diaphragm chamber is causing this behavior. Can such a
