The one I have in my living room is only about a year or two old. But for some reason when it gets very humid like it's been for the last two weeks, instead of the condensation dribbling out the back to the outside, it comes out the FRONT and is soaking the carpet!!!! And it's tilted back a little, so the condensation should go towards the back and drip outside, but it doesn't. And it's not just a little water either! For the last several days I've had to get out the carpet shampooer and use it to s*ck the water out of the carpet! I've tried just putting the A/C unit on the fan setting, but it's just too darned hot and humid to do that! My only consolation is that it's almost October and pretty soon I'll be able to turn it off! Any bright ideas?
