Several years ago I purchased a new window unit that I thought was defective
because it didn't drop. Turns out the condensate puddles inside where the
condenser fan picks it up and throws it on the coil.
This water is pretty pure but as someone else mentioned, tap water has a lot of
crud in it. Might try using distilled water instead.
Shading the unit is the first thing I'd try.

I've got a window mounted A/C in my garage. It generally does a pretty good job
of cooling it down but now that the daily high is over 100 (f) it is having a
problem and is tripping the breaker after running a hour or so in mid afternoon
( unit gets full sun).
Question: would installing a fine water mist sprayer behind the evaporator coil
easy the load on the compressor thus allowing it to continue to cool?
For the few weeks I have this problem it is not worth the cost of wiring and
installing a larger unit.
Thanks for any thoughts
