Question about Haier hwr10xc6 Air Conditioner

Why do most window air conditioners have vents on top - would not rain get in and ruin something? Should I be concerned?

    You need not to be worried, the vent is at the Evaporator side which is going to be inside the room while the condensing side is going to appear outside.

Thee window air conditioners are designed to keep the rain water on the outside. There are no components that the rain can get to damage anything.

After running the A/C for a couple of hours and after a period of rain, I took the air conditioner out of the window. Probably one or two pints of water emptied on the floor. there is an open vent on top...

Many of the newer A/C window units do not drain the water, but use the fan to splash it up on the coil to evaporate it and help cool the unit...
You can drill a hole in the back corner to drain it, but watch that you don't hit the coil and cause a freon leak...this also may reduce the efficiency a bit...

I have a new GEAEM08FM 8,000 BTU ac in my window. (around 7/2010). There has been a mildew smell in my room, and when i looked inside the air conditioner (from the vent at the top), i can see the pipes...

If it was me I would mix a strong Clorox/water solution and spray everything down leaving the Clorox water in the tray...this will kill and fungi/mold and make it smell good...

How wide is the exhaust tube?

You cannot restrict the exhaust duct size or you will restrict the air flow and thus reduce or stop the cooling. It might even ruin the unit.

It seems it's collecting water in the tray and blowing it out through the top vent, dripping from the bottom inside the house and is making a sound constantly like the fan is hitting water as it blows.

AC units do take the humidity out of the air and water collects in the bottom. The unit should be tilted slightly downward on the outside so that the water runs outrside. Make sure the drain holes are clear. The pinging noise is common, the fan is hitting drops of water, nothing to be concerned about

GE air conditioner with air louvers on top of case - problem?

Most fan motors are allergic to water. You should carefully examine the places where rain could go and decide whether GE has sold you a risky situation. After all, they have left it up to you to make the decision.

I wouldn't buy one with openings on the top and I wouldn't keep one after GE has demonstrated that not responding is the kind of help you will receive.

If your condenser blow air up through the top of the condenser and you are concern about rain water affecting the unit.

You can install a roof or rain hood about 4ft above the unit to keep the rain off, The unit must be able to blow air off without causing Hi head pressure to affect the unit, The condenser must breathe or desipate heat freely.

Tell me if your question answered or if it works for you.
