Question about Haier HWF05XC5 Air Conditioner
If ya love the sound of water hitting the fan,and the conitous sound of dripping, this is the model to buy. I dont know how its suppose to drain, out the back i guess. Dont matter what angle you put the thing on..it holds water. Drain hose? nope. Take it out and manually drain it every day. ( or hour if you are so inclined, no pun intended.) Im tempted to drill a hole in it to get water to drain. ( Never buy this model, spend the extra cash on a different brand.
Well lets work with it becouse that the one you have..first let me tell you dont make that hole becouse the water that remaing in the tray is use to cool down the condenser and beleve me its a good idea..its not supouse to condese more water thant he can evaporate..but try to screw a littel bit more the two screw in the back of the cabinet to down the cabinet 10 degrees more to see if that help you...good luck

THIS IS MY SECOND SEASON WITH THIS UNIT.I FIRST DRILLED TWO HOLESONE ON EACH SIDE BY THE CONDENSOR THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE THE CURE. PUT IT BACK IN THE WINDOW STILL NOT DRAINING. TOOK IT ALL APART FACING THE UNIT ON THE LEFT I PUNCHED A HOLE IN THE BOTTOM LEFT CORNER OF THE STROFOAM. I RAN ALL LAST NIGHT NO MORE WATER. HOPE THIS HELPS. I WONDER IF I CAN GET A JOB WITH HAIER IN THERE QUALITY CONTROL DEPARTMENT

Contrary to the counsel against drilling drainage holes, I did exactly that and the unit works wonderfully. Every now and then the water that drips from the top of the unit falls into the fan, but the problem is generally fixed. A normal angle, two very small drainage holes in the lowest part of the bottom of the outdoor part of the unit, and viola, problem solved. I know of another man who has a similar unit with the same problem who added a small pump system to drain the water, and it works beautifully. All in all the AC unit is good if you can resort to unconventional means of fixing small problems.
