Why is this blowing hot air out the back when the cold a comes out the front

The hot air is heat from the cooling compressor, while it's in operation. It's normal and should not be of concern, as long as the unit is cooling as it should and the host air is being exhausted out the flexible hose to the window.

Hope this answered your question and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My portable ge air contioner 8000 btu keeps blowing fuses, even when it is the only thing plugged into that fuse

The reason you are blowing fuses is 'high amp draw,' which is most always caused by a 'electrical short,' and the most common things to cause such a short are the 'compressor and fan motor(s).

I would say you need a serviceperson to determine exactly what is causing your short.

Wont no water to empty or drain

Either the unit is really dirty or it is low on refrigerant. A unit tha is low on refrigerant will start off cold and withing a few minutes, start warming up. If you aren't seeing any water its because of one or both causes listed.
