Question about Hampton Bay HBLG5004 Air Conditioner

2 Answers

My airconditioner is leaking water from the front just below the control panel. A huge puddle forms every 30 minutes or so. Could this be an installation problem?

Also worth mentioning.... I have a Hampton Bay 6000 BTU window unit also, and also had the water problems... once ruining some sheetrock which had to be replaced. Not only do you have to respect the law of gravity and make the drain hole the lowest point... but be careful to take the unit out of the window once a year at the beginning of the season and clean it completely if you can. The water on the inside of the case can grow mold or algae which along with other contaminants may clog up the drain holes between the drip pan under the evaporator coil (front) and the back of the case. Some water on the inside is normal, and it is designed so that this water is evaporated or slung up on the condenser coil (back) and the evaporation increases the efficiency of the unit to cool on the inside. The problem is that eventually without servicing, it all turns to a grey or green mud. Be careful not to use a water hose on anything like the electrical control boards. That would be a recipe for disaster as the pcb material absorbs water and would cause a short or a fire when you turn the electricity back on.

The back of the unit needs to be the lowest point. It sweats inside and needs to roll to the back where there is a drain hole

Dishwasher Leaking Water Front left side (when facing)


Had a similar situation with my dishwasher. Turned out there was some hard water build up on the rubber gasket. I would start there first. I would not use any harsh chemicals on it, (it may jeopardize the gasket) it usually flakes off. Hope this helps.

Is it leaking inside the car? If so then it is more than likely the heater core is leaking antifreeze. You will need to replace the heater core under the dash.

First ck to see if your water pump is leaking. It normally leaks when the machine is running not just filling. Also look at all the attaching rubber hoses under the machine and see if water is leaking down the back right side of the machine and then running around the frame to the front long shot but possible.
