Question about Hampton Bay HBLG5004 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Water has accumulated in my air conditioner...

I have an HBLG5004 for a few years with no probs...until last night. It was making a sloshing noise (it does that sometimes when there is a bit of water accumulation). Well this time the fan was making a deep 'whirring' noise and was spitting little droplets of water out of the vent up top.

Should I just let this ****** dry out and start from there? Or is this a larger problem?

You need to check to see if the unit is off-level, as it should be. From the outside, the unit should appear to be slightly tilted to allow for water run off. Also, check to make sure the water drain hole or holes are not clogged with debris. Remember, an air conditioner is also a good dehumidifer and the water that it removes from the air it is cooling must go somewhere.

My new Fedders window air conditioner makes clicking noise all night long. HELP!


Has it done it since day one? Does it sound like the kind of noise you might get by flicking drops of water into a fan? If so that noise is normal for many newer air conditioners. Sorry.

Water is not draining out the back of the window unit and water is blowing out the front and fan is making a noise


Kathy, there are 2 reasons this happens.

1. the unit is not tilted down at least 1/4" on the outside of the window.

2. The drain hole in the condensation pan (under the unit) is clogged.

Resolving the above (either one or both) should solve the problem.

In the meantime turn the AC unit OFF.

Hope this helped you.

Hello, I have a 5300 BTU, 4.8 amp window air conditioner from Daewoo. I just hooked it up and after 15 minutes it has water sloshing around inside it making loud sounds. I tried level, the 1/4 inch fall...


Hello, that sound Is normal usually when humidity is high. The evaporator coil sweats when the humidty is very high and the fan spashes the condensate on the condenser to evaporate it. Now if the unit has a knockout hole you can use it but you must use a hose attached to it so it drains properly. But the sloshing sound is normal during high humidity.

It's two years old, and is now spitting out lots of water.


Should have a drain on the unit. Check for ports that have debris in them on the outside of the unit. Clean the debris out and the unit should drain normally.

Got a leak in the front of my air conditioner


There is no valve. The water condensate from the cooling coil flows toward the back of the A/C where it is evaporated or drained. Tilt the A/C a little toward the back and see if that helps speed up the drainage.
