You do not mention the model, I presume that it is a cassette, in which case the float switch is located in the indoor unit. You have to remove the cover which is 4 screws. First make sure all power supply is turned off. Then remove the drain pan which surrounds the fan blade. You will see in one corner of the unit a slightly deeper part of the drainpan, this is the corner where both the condensate pump as well as float switch is located. Before you do any of this, give a serious blow into the drain pipe from outside and this may dislodge any sludge which may be causing the floatswitch to stick. You can also pull out a rubber plug which is under the pump on the drainpan.

I have a Haier split airconditioner HSU-22HD03, it runs for 5 minutes and then switches off and the power and timer light start flashing.


It shows your indoor PCB faulty. (As you didn't mention any error code). Next time count the green light flashing and write.Thanks.

Red bucket full light stays on.


If the bucket is full then the pump should be running, if the pump is not running it is a faulty pump motor, a faulty control board, a faulty level switch for the pump motor or the water level alarm float switch.

Water resevior is empty and light stays on?


If the high water level switch closes, the
compressor and condensor fan motors shut
off, and the water full indicator LED lights. The
water must be drained manually. Since you have dumped the water the high water level switch must be stuck in the off position. Page 42 of this manual shows the high and low water switch cover plate removed and the floats. Check the floats to see if something is making it stick or it has a hole in it. This manual is from WP but I imagine all of them type ACs come from the same source. PORTABLE AC SERVICE MANUAL

Have you checked the water container in the unit? It has a float switch that when it is full it will not allow the unit to run so that it will avoid spilling water on to the floor. Hope this helps 2rns4u <*{{{>(

Air conditioner has to be reset --E1


If your a/c unit is portable,and E1 code most always is "air filter cleaning time" or" water level to high ".
To reset air filter interval turn unit off at power switch then unplug.Hold power switch down while plugging in....unit will go through a short self check then beep.Release power button after beep.Unit should now be reset.
To reset water level....just drain some.....not all.
Most portables use water for increase cooling......so leave some in.
