Question about Haier hwr10xc6 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

I have a Haier HWR10XC6 and it's only two years old. It has been shooting out hot air. I removed the sleeve to the airconditoner since i read online that it may need to be recharged. Can this be correct and also where would i place the refrigerant at? Where are the valves located at??

Most all window units (if not all) are 'sealed' units and have no valves. The reason being - is that they rarely need charging - unless damaged somehow, i.e. dropped, or one of the coils is punctured somehow.

AC's sitting in a window will hardly ever develop a leak and need a recharge - and if you do not have a leak the refrigerant is good forever.

All that being said - 'if' it does need a re-charge you will need to call a service tech because 'charging' an Air Conditioner requires a degree of professional knowledge and a set of gauges. Also, the valves will need to be 'welded' into the system, (although you can buy 'self-puncturing' valves) - but they have a reputation for leaking - so I never do that myself nor recommend it being done.

As to your problem; since you said it's blowing hot air then I know your fan motor is working so it's evident that the compressor is not starting. The one thing that could cause this that you might be able to fix yourself would be a 'wire' that has burnt in two. Usually this happens on the compressor and is fairly easy to fix with a new connector, and a pair of wire crimpers. If you are mechanically inclined you could first make sure the unit is unplugged and then dismantle the unit (a little) to take a look.

It could be a wire burnt in two on the 'switch, or a capacitor, or the compressor itself as mentioned above.

In any case if you find this is your problem you merely have to put a connector (you can usually buy these connectors in a hardware store) back on with a wire crimper and re-install it from where it came, i.e. switch, capacitor or compressor.

Also, if a capacitor is ''significantly bulged" that usually indicates it's bad, which could also be your problem, especially if it's a 'start capacitor.' If you have a capacitor that looks bulged to you - I would try replacing it (one wire at a time).

You can write the info off the bad capacitor and go to a AC parts house and they will usually sell you one, at retail of course. Or you can make sure you 'tag' the wires in such a way that you can (wire it back up) - and remove the capacitor and take it in - to be sure you get an exact replacement.

In any event - the possible problems I discussed above are relatively cheap even if a service tech does the work.

I would guess that since the unit is so new your problem will be a burnt wire or a bad cap and the repair bill should be under a $100.

good luck

How do I program a universal remote to my haier air condioner I lost my original remote

Most universal remotes won't have a code for an air conditioner. You'll need one that is made to work with A/C systems. See: or for remotes that will work with the HWR10XC6 and some other Haier air conditioners.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model and manufacturer of the universal remote you have. I'll try to confirm the available codes and how to program the unit.

Does the unit have an energy saver or timer feature? It should be on the top front panel of your unit. If so, read and follow the directions in your manual. If you still have problems, contact Haier at their toll free Customer Service helpline.
