Question about Air Conditioners

10 Answers

Haier HWR05XC5 I have a Haier A/C window unit, model mentioned above, and I have lost the remote control. Are you aware of how to manually adjust the temperature on the unit? I only see the on/off button and nothing else, but I find it pretty amusing that a unit wouldn't be able to adjust w/out the remote. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm here with a 15 month old in 90 degree weather and buying another A/C unit is not an option. Thanks.

    I've got the exact same problem, this is kind of annoying. You would think there would be some sort of manual control on the unit, guess this is how Haier make their money.

    Does anyone know what kind of universal remote to use? My box never came with the remote in it, and the store would not return it. I have also heard you can use a standard TV remote. I have tried every single remote in my house, no luck.

I have 2 of these ACs one remote is missing and the other was dropped in water. You can use the AC. Plug the unit in and hold the on/off button down for about 20 sec.or until the unit comes on. The cooling unit will come on but you will not have any control on the temp or fan speed, but you will have cool air and not just the fan running.

    Awesome ! This worked and its so damn hot right now. So happy that the AC kicked on. BTW at this time there are remotes on E Bay for this unit for 5.95 but takes up to 2 weeks for delivery. I can deal w/o remote for that time, as long as this idea works. Thanks again.

When your ac is off, press and hold the power button. Wait past the time you start to feel foolish. It WILL turn on cool with the temp set to 61 degrees. Once you let go, the temp read out will go back to showing the temp in the room.

Try holding the on/off button down for a while, and cycling through off and on a few times. I'm not exactly sure what I did, but when I first turned it on, it was on low and fan, and after mucking around with it a bit, it's now on high and cool. At some point I saw 61 show up on the panel, and there's no possible way that room is 61 degrees. I'm assuming that's the temperature the unit is now set for.

I thought I lost my remote for a while too, so I just used my television/dvd remote. I know it sounds stupid, but I pressed every button on the remote to see what function they triggered, and I was able to turn it on, switch from fan to AC, and adjust the temperature. Try it...$30 for that stupid remote is ridiculous.

I did the hold the button for 20 seconds, and it worked. Just make sure it's turned off, then hold the button until it comes on and then release the button. It should start on high cool, at least mine did. Thanks! because the remotes are either over priced on some websites, or on backorder on sears.

Universal A/C remote on eBay, $3.00. I was skeptical. But I'll be dipped: works like a charm. Search by model # of your A/C unit. Comes from China, so order in the winter.

Who do you go through to get this remote for $30???

Sorry , the remote is the only method to change the temprature, call up haier and reorder a remote , Sad to say its going to cost$30.00 Total , $19.95 for the remote , $7.95 for shipping , plus tax. I suggest that when you get the new remote , keep it in one place and away from the kids, thats if you have any.

My unit requires remote control to operate remote control is lost what 2 do


Whether you have a thru the window model or a potable AC, the same controls that are on the remote are on the face of the unit. To operate it without the remote, turn the unit OFF and unplug it. Wait 5 minutes, then plug it back in. Wait 3 minutes & turn the unit ON using the controls on the front of the unit.. The controls will have reverted back to the original factory settings and you can now use the front control panel to operate & set the controls as you like.

If you want to purchase a new hand held remote, contact Haier Product Support 1-877-337-3639.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Previous tenant left ac window unit Haier HWF05XC5, but took the remote. Can I manually turn on this ac unit? when turning the power button, only the fan turns on, I'm unable to switch to AC


According to the Model Number you listed, it's a Mechanically or Manually Controlled AC unit. There is no remote control for it.Please be certain the Model Number you listed is correct and get back to me.

If it's the correct model number and it's manually controlled. You should have 2 rocker switches. One is to turn the power ON & Off. The other is to set the Fan Speed either on Low or High. Then there is a dial, numbered 1 to 10 to set the cooling level. 1 is min cool and 10 is Max Cool.

If the controls on your unit match what I described above, it's a manually controlled unit. No remote.

I hope this helped you. Please advise. Thanks.

LOST REMOTE BUT TRYING TO GET IT COOL...PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!...its a Haier 9000 btu model #HPRB09XC7


Stephanie, the Control Panel Operation is the same as the remote control. But, if the Control Panel is not allowing you to change the settings, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 - 20 minutes. Then plug the unit back in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set the controls as you would like. Hopefully, the unit's electronics reset themselves during the 15 - 20 minute timeout and you will be able to operate the unit using the control panel.

Hope this helped you solve the problem.

I was just given a Haier air conditioner model HWR05XC7. It is not manual controlled. How do you operate it?


Unfortunately, the model number you listed is not a current Haier model. However, the electronic controlled unit, use a hand held remote control to operate and set the functions of the AC unit.
Call Haier America Customer Support 877-337-3639. As the may be able to help you and provide you with an Owners Manual.

Hope this helps you. Please let me know. Thanks.
