Is it leaking or shutting off on the overfill?
If it is leaking you have a stopped up drain inside the unit.

Haier portable AC water collection tank full in one hour.

My unit was working fine for a couple years but now it won't evaporate. It still cools fine but it also collects about 16 ounces of water every hour and then shuts itself off until I drain it. I'm wondering it the evaporative mechanism it broken some how.

When i turn it on it shuts off and the power button flashes red

Sounds like the condensation pan is full and the float switch is shutting the unit down. I just encountered this issue, there is a small pump that usually prevents the pan from filling up by pumping the condensate over the condensor and evaporating it, either the pump has failed or the humidity is too high and it can't keep up.

Water collects much more rapidly & unit shuts off

the tank will fill more rapidily when the humidity level is high,empty the tank and keep all windows closed and you should notice it slowing down over the next couple of days

My amcor air conditioner is leaking water all over the floor. I drain it and it will only last less then 24 hours till it turns off, leaks all over an needs to be drained. Help!

I figured out the problem. My Amcor portable started leaking after the fill light came on for the first time in years. After doing some research I saw that it uses the water to cool some other part of the system to evaporate out the exhaust. So I took the ******* apart and messed with things. Finally I started pouring water into different trays and noticed it would not drain down from the top tray even when running. So I removed the top part and found the drain hole. Blasted that sum ***** with some compressed air and WAMMO it works again.

Sorry, it is working well! Part of an air conditioner's job is to remove excess humidity from the air. This is what is filling up the bucket.

Air Conditioner/Heater not working for more than 2 hours.

If you are running it in a very humid envioronment then it will make more water than it can evaporate off.
