I just had a new through the wall air conditioner installed.

I just had a new through the wall air conditioner installed. A sleeve was installed through the wall first, then, the air conditioner was slid into it. The back of the sleeve is covered by a vented backing, and the gaps between he sleeve and the brick wall were sealed with concrete and foam insulation. Here is my Q: I noticed that the air conditioner doesn't drip out the back. Do ALL air conditioners drip? And, if so, do I have a problem? Has my professional installation somehow "blocked" the water exit and I'll soon be dealing with back-up water?

I just bought a used Idylis air conditioning unit model

I just bought a used Idylis air conditioning unit model #RPAC12EA.It has a hose for draining water out the back when using the dehumidifier, but even when I don't use the dehumidifier aspect and only use the air conditioning, there is a ton of water that comes out of that hose. (About one drop every second, sometimes more). Is this normal?Also, although I set the temperature to 73°, it will never drop below 80°.The unit is almost brand new and the last owner did not mention any problems with it. I'm rather useless when it comes to knowing anything about appliances. Any help would be great. Thanks!

My air conditioner would not turn on when I pressed the

My air conditioner would not turn on when I pressed the power button. I occasionally pressed the power button. At 8 PM the air conditioner came on, but it does not stay at the temperature I set. It keeps going lower until it gets to 60. It is cooling my apartment. I thought the air conditioner was dead and I ordered a new one. Does this mean my air conditioner is on its last leg anyway?
