Test, reset sounds like a GFCI. is the machine draing properly? Sometimes the fan will blow , splash water and cause a ground fault. It wouldn't hurt to check the outlut and the breaker controlling it. Just plug a lamp in and make sure there is power.
Good luck.

It is quite likely that there is a collection tray or tank for condensation inside the machine. The outlet pipe is quite likely blocked. Disconnect it from the mains (just in case) and gently push a piece of wire or stiff plastic rod (strimmer cord ?) up the pipe.

Hi I've just purchased a used HPRD12XC5 portable air conditioner. It did not come with Air Intake/Outlet hoses, exhaust adapter or window slider kit. Is there somewhere I can buy these? Thanks -...

Harry. if you purchased it from a brick and mortar store, rather than online. Return it to the store for replacement. Or you can get it from Haier under warranty, with your Proof of Purchase. It's more to it than just the air intake and the exhaust hoses.

You can contact Haier Customer Support at 877-337-3639.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

The Model # is HPRD12XC5. A red light went on next to the AC fan

The water pan in the bottom was probably full. Did you try to drain it? First uplug the machine from the outlet. There should be a little knob to unscrew in the lower back of the machine. Once you remove it, pull out the little black stopper and have a very shallow pan ready to collect any water. Once everything is drained, replace the stopper and the knob, plug it back into the outlet, and press the reset button. Turn the unit on and wait a couple of minutes for the compressor to start.

Haier AC Won't start

I had the same problem with a different model. I tested the cord, it worked, but still would not turn on. Well, after two days my friend and I decided we would try to replace the battery in the remote---it worked! Try your remote battery.

Haier portable air conditioner HPRDXC5

I just bought this A/C unit today for $649.99 CAD, and it won't cool the room down...small room and I had it on for 3 hours, and it's still 32°C in here...taking it back to Best Buy tomorrow for a full refund. 'Red light is on' means that the water tank is full, as stated in the manual. Open the rubber plug at the bottom rear of the unit and empty out the water so that the unit can function. If this doesn't help, or there is no water in it, the electronics are probably messed up and you will have to send it for repair or replacement. Good luck...

Will not start

One thing you can try is to hold down on the power button and plug the unit in. Hopefully you will hear a "beep". Then you need to unplug it for a minute and plug it back in. This is a known procedure to clear error codes from the control computer on units similar to yours, so it might possibly work. Something else you can do is download and look through the Users Manual for your model, which is at this URL: --> Hope that helps! ;)
