Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAC126P1, is not draining water or collecting water near the coils. When your air conditioner was installed, you would have wanted to make sure that the top rail and sliding panels at each side were offset to provide the proper pitch to the rear of (5/16"). This is necessary for proper condensed water utilization and drainage. If you are not using the Side Panels for any reason, this pitch to the rear must be maintained! I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

SOURCE: Drain Hole for Frigidaire Window Air Conditioner

Leave it alone. DO NOT attempt to create a drain. As long as a window A/C unit is installed properly, (angled slightly down toward the rear) it will drain excess water over the rear lower lip of the unit should it get that high. Many models use some of the collected water/condensation. It gets lifted up by the fan blades to cool the coil.

SOURCE: The drain hole is in the window sill, not the back

I'm not sure why that drain hole is located where it is - but in any case - you're going to have to plug the existing hole and re-drill another drain hole at the back of the unit.

I would plug the unwanted hole with a 'liquid steel material,' i.e. JB Weld or something similar.

Note: be careful when re-drilling the new drain hole and don't drill a hole in your condenser.

good luck!

Some don't have a drain hole anymore. As long as you have it tilted slightly, any excess water will drain out. If your house or room feels good, it's working. It won't pull moisture out of the air if the air has already been dehumidified.

SOURCE: there is no drain hole for water to drip outside.

These are designed to retain some water in the pan. This is for the slinger fan to throw water through the condensing coil. This helps the refrigerant cool and is important to the efficiency of the unit. I would certainly not recommend drilling a hole in the bottom. The hole may cause the water to roll somewhere where damage could occur. Try instead tipping the unit Backwards before bringing it in the house.

SOURCE: THE DRAIN HOLE FOR MY FRIDGIDAIRE AIR CONDITIONER

You will have to remove the unit fro the window,and take it outside and remove the cover,unless the sheel remains in the window,and use a water hose to clean all the debris out and clear the drain,this really needs to be done every year,also,make sure the tilt on the unit is enough for the water to drain outside,not in,if this was at all helpful,please rate thank you.

Where is the drain pan drain hole on the bottom of the Fridgidaire FAC 127S1A air conditioner?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know where the drain hole is on your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAC127S1A. I see that the drain seems to be blocked, as water is collecting in the drain pan, instead of draining. The drain hole is located beneath the compressor. You might want to try tilting your air conditioner slightly to the outside, to allow better water drainage. Hope this is helpful.

I have a goldstar air conditioner thats throwing water


The problem you're having can be the result of 2 tings.

1. The drain hole in the drip pan under the unit is clogged. The hole should be located near the rear of
the unit. It can be hard to find at times, as the clog will bled in with the hole.

2. The rear of the unit does not have enough downward tilt. Which allows the collected water to flow to
the drain hole. The general rule of thumb is 1/4" to 1/2" downward tilt at the rear of the unit.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Need to know if I can connect a drain hose/tube to my air conditioner model # FAX054-P7A1. I'm having a problem with water collecting in the window sill/track


Hello, the first thing is make sure the AC is tilted a bit in the window, if it is level the water will collect toward the front of the unit and drip inside. Second if there is a drain hole on tne unit then you can connect a hose to it and let it drain. However if there is no drain hole then the unit uses tne fan blade to splash the water on the condenser and since the condenser is warm/hot it will condense the water.

When automatic defrost operates, the water created collects inside the bottom of the refrigerator rather than draining into the exterior pan. Two different service men cleaned the exterior drain and coils.


Inside the freezer where the drain hole is is getting blocked with ice. If you have had it cleared twice already and the problem persist. The make something called a drain heater. This piece of metal wraps around the defrost heater and the sets down in the drain line heating everytime the heater does and causing any water that make have collected there to thaw and run out instead of freezing up and overflowing into your freezer.

It collects some water but it also spits water out


The dehumidifier has a non-removable tray under the coils (they look like radiators) that collects and drains the water away. If the tray or drain gets clogged with dirt or slime the water doesn't drain away well. Some water is picked up by the fan and is blown out the vent. Take the covers off the machine and give everything a good cleaning. If you get water on any electrical parts, let the machine dry thoroughly before plugging in.

this should not be happening as a heater in the freezer should eliminate this problem.first check the hose is completely clear,if it is when your fridge goes into defrost mode you should be able to feel warmth near this drain or hear the ice crackling and defrosting thence draining via the rear tube also try removing the offending ice in the drain with hot water
