Customer Question

amcor portable air conditioner continuously leaking water
Submitted: 7 years ago.
Category: HVAC
Expert:  Mr. Jeff Pearson replied 7 years ago.
Hi, is the unit level or slightly tilted to the drain side? Is the unit fastened to the wall properly, or is it a little loose and tilting forward? Is the drain line visible on the outside of the house? If it is, is it full of water or empty?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
unit is level on concrete flooring. it is a portable unit with technology that is supposed to eliminate need for draining--through a small hose that runs through the vent hose. leaks massive amounts of water
Expert:  Mr. Jeff Pearson replied 7 years ago.

You might want to check that the small hose has not been disconnected from where it picks up the water.


Where is the water leaking from? I was under the impression that the vent hose was completely sealed.

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
water is leaking from the bottom of the unit---where the small capped area is that allows you to drain the unit. Vent hose is completely sealed--leads directly from unit to the window
Expert:  Mr. Jeff Pearson replied 7 years ago.

All I can tell you is that the little hose inside the vent hose must have come loose.


If you can, try to get at it to check it out.


If you can't , take it in to have it fixed
