Answer: People clean your ac's please! They have a drain it must be stopped up!Take it out and wash it out with a water hose wait 1 hour for it to dry and put back in . Look for drain and make sure it is clean. Use a cleaner (purple power etc..)

Answer: fixing a leak in an ac unit is to complicated to tell you how to fix.there are various ways to find leak and fix but you need to be experienced to do it correctly!Do not attempt to fix a freon leak unless you are experienced!

Answer: Lift front or lower back to ensure that front of a/c is higher than rear of a/c...this will stop the water from leaking into house.
