    Water dripping/splashing sound new thru-the-wall AC

    Today is my 3rd day of use of a new thru-the-wall AC

    I noticed an internal dripping/splashing sound as it is running that I don't think I have picked up on the two days prior - it's light but audible

    Just wanted to ask the pros to make sure it is not an issue like water not draining or a refrigerant issue (as I had read online)

    The AC is on a small incline so it should be draining. The dripping/splashing sound happens when the either the "cool" or "fan" options are turned on

    The interior of my apartment is dry - I don't see any internal leak

    The only thing of note is that there was a big storm on night 2 - could that have collected in the AC and is causing the sound I am hearing now?

    Thank you

    The condenser fan has a ring called a slinger that splashes the condensate water on the condenser coil. It is a normal sound.

    I'm tired of these mediocre "semi flammable" refrigerants. If we're going to do it let's do it right.
    All opinion subject to change without notice.
