Your question is a little confusing. You could mean takes on water in a tank inside the machine, a bucket you empty when it fills. Sounds like it is dehumidfing because that is what they do, take water out of the air, and just blow room temperature air out, not cold. Many portables have that feature.
If that sounds like it, find the Cool button, or mode button to switch to the cool function.
I heard that some portable air conditioners can leak water from the unit after being operated for about an hour or so if they are not on a level floor. <br />
I solved this with my DeLonghi air con after discovering the floor my unit was on had about 1 - 2 mm difference from one side to the other. By buying a small builder's liquid level (like you use to keep a line of bricks aligned) I used a small piece of wood (ruler thickness) under one side of the air con and no more leaks! Hope this helps someone. Kez, Perth WA
If it were a leaking heater core, the inside glass surface would have an oily film along with the fog.
It sounds like your fresh air intake is not working. You have to get fresh air from the outside to be able to get rid of the excess moisture inside the cabin. Or you have excessive moisture inside from a water leak that the system can't overcome.
Think about it for a minute. You have a refrigerator in your home. And I'm sure you know of several other homes that have refrigerators that are several years old. How many times last year did a service tech come to your house or the others and put refrigerant in the fridge? Or how many times in the past 5 years? If I'm not mistaken this unit is a sealed unit. Meaning all pipe or tubing connections are welded.So if it really does need refrigerant. Thats only part of the problem. Refrigerant does not get used up. Yours took 16oz R22.at the factory and it should still have all 16oz. Unless you have a leak. If you don't find & fix the leak first the same problem will return. Beware of shops that want to add so called "leak sealers" or dye to your AC. Any good shop can find a leak without adding any dye if they have the right equipment and well trained techs. In the not too distant past if a unit went back to the factory with dye or any other "additive" in it. The warranty was void. Most leaks can be found with soap solutions. The tough ones require an electronic leak detector & sometimes dry nitrogen. If you want to, keep me posted. briconnefl on aye oh ell.
Serviceman! Ice build up is a sign of low charge or poor air flow over the inside coil. Improper draining is either a unlevel indoor unit or blockage in condensate drain. There is no way other than a leak in the piping for refrigerant to leak out. Have another technician put a pressure test on the piping and recharge the refrigerant.
The thermostat is not functional, therefore its not cutting off the compressor once the room air gets cooled to the temp setting of the thermostat, also the refrigerant gas may have leaked out some but not the entire refrigerant gas(freon, CF4, etc.), keeping the compressor running contentiously to come down to the set temp..............sodeep
Hi, no don't drill holes in bottom tray, to make drain, that's design, you need to keep water there, the fan usually pick up water(moisture) and add to your air inside your home, otherwise the air in your home will become to dry, dry air will create static electricity all over your home, from your carpet to your clothes, you need to level your unit horizontally, put a spirit level, and you should have a slight pitch, from front to back, good luck.
If your coils and filter are clean and you have good air flow then you are very likely low on refrigerant. Most A/C's (depending on use) have about a 20 year lifespan. I would call a Tech. to check it.
I'm in a similar situation with a physical neccessity for a/c, year round, even though I live in temperate New Jersey. My husband is an A/C / Refrigeration tech & here's some things you can try to fix your Haier A/C. 1.) Make sure you keep the area where the filter is clean, if you aren't using a filter, you are clogging the air flow much quicker, which can lead to freeze ups. 2.) Due to how shoddy things are made now-a-days & with the storm coming through, you may have a conked out compressor or may have a small refrigeration leak, which can also cause freeze ups. 3.) Make darned sure that the unit is level, if you find it is not, leave your unit off for at least 24 hours for the refrigeration gas & oil in the system to level off. Sadly, I do not know the model or type of Haier A/C you have & as I'd mentioned, things are no longer made to last like they once were & to get 3 years from a newer model is likely to be the best you can hope for. Haier is fairly decent with wanting to keep up customer morale & if it's a newer unit (younger than 18 months), they may help you to repair it for free or low cost. Good luck with that!
