    what is the model number of your unit, i can get you some information from the owner's manual which will explain how to connect the drain tube on the back.

    • If you use the Heat mode, you must install the drain hose.
    • If only the Cool mode is used, the drain hose is not needed.
    • If the outside temperature is at or near freezing (32°F/0°C) follow the indoor drainage instructions.
    • If using the outdoor drainage method, make sure the outlet of the hose is aimed away from nearby surfaces that could be stained or damaged by the draining water.

    INDOOR DRAINAGE
    1. To attach the drain hose, insert the connector into the upper drain port at the back of the unit until it snaps into place.
    2. Place the other end of the drain hose in a bucket that holds at least 28 ounces. Remember to check and empty the bucket frequently to avoid overflows.
    3. Set the unit to automatic drain by pressing the Fan and Down buttons at the same time.
    4. To detach the drain hose, push the outer ring of the upper drain port in and pull the connector out.

    OUTDOOR DRAINAGE
    When the weather is above freezing, the unit can be set up to drain to the outside. Make sure the outlet of the hose is aimed away from nearby surfaces that could be stained or damaged by the draining water.

    1. To attach the drain hose, insert the connector into the upper drain port at the back of the unit until it snaps into place.
    2. Rotate the nut cover on the window vent panel and insert the other end of the drain hose through the hole in the window vent panel.
    3. Make sure to insert the drain hose at least 8 inches.
    4. Rotate the nut cover back to secure the drain hose in place.
    5. Set the unit to automatic drain by pressing the Fan and Down buttons at the same time.
    6. To detach the drain hose from the product, push the outer ring of the upper drain port in and pull the connector out.

     Inserting the drain hose in the unit will automatically activate the drain function. To activate the drain manually, press the Fan and Down buttons at the same time.
