No. Water is not what makes an AC cold. It is a refrigerant gas called Freon. Water is only a by-product of an AC system caused by condensation. If your AC is not blowing cold air the system might be either low on Freon or completely empty due to a leak. It should be checked out by a certified AC specialist.

Why is my 8000 btu portable air conditioner leaking water all over the floor

IF this is a regular unit and not one that you add water too (like a swap cooler) it is normal for water to be produced. When those units cool the air, the water in the air condenses in the coils and drips down to a pan in the bottom. There should be a light that comes on and tells you to empty it and there should be a plug for emptying the unit. If it is leaking then the there could be issues with the tray and where the water is going.

The air coming out of my Haier CPRB09XC7 Portable Air Conditioner has gotten warmer and dryer. I'm sure that i need to add water but i do not know how as the manual was lost a while ago. Do I just need to...

Actually, sportsfan, you don't need to add any water. In fact, there is no way to do it. Your unit works much the same way a dehumidifier does with auto evaporation function. In other words, it collects the humidity out of the room air a evaporates it, so there is no water removal on your part involved. While this water is being evaporated, it's also being cooled, so that cools your room. The hot air of the unit running is exhausted out through the window vent kit.

To replace your Owners Manual call Haier Customer Support 877-337-3639

Hope this helped answer your question. Please let me know. Thanks.

sounds like your water pump is air bound ( there is a air bubble in your cooling system,or your water pump isn't turning.Bleed the cooling system by jacking car upso the antifreeze fill area is the highest point and run the engineat 1500 rpms add water if it goes down that tell you that the water pump is pulling.Also see if you have a air bleed on the cooling system.Keep the rpms up until you can't add anymore water then put cap back on before returning the engine to normal idle speed.

We just got this air conditioner and it did not have a manual, do we need to add any water to this unit?

You do not need to add water to the air conditioner. Water will form and drain outside when it cools the space down, as it also pulls moisture from the air.

Model rs2533sw panel not reseting after being unplugged

I had the same problem (panel would not start up - just flashed one dash after a power outage).

The solution above: pressing the top two buttons for 12 seconds (Power Freeze and Power Cool buttons) reset the panel and everything is working fine now.

Thank You!
