    This happened last night we left it unplugged all night and I tried it again this morning to no avail. Its pretty new only about 2 weeks old so I am just going to return it I think. There must be something wrong with the actual unit itself.

    I have same model. HWR08CX7. I bought it yesterday. After installing into the window , and plugging in, it performed the self-check. Then it started up, ran for about 5-8 seconds and shut off. It would not start at all after that. The green light is lit on the plug. I have tried tripping and resetting the plug, let it sit overnight, but to no avail. I called Haier customer service and they told me to return it to the store. I exchanged it today. I took the new one home and plugged it in. It worked fine. Then I put it in the window and it will not start. I called customer service again. The only thing I could think of was that the electrical cord was compressed out of the unit. The unit sits on the cord in the window. I have taken it out of the window, unpluggged it,waited the 3-5minutes customer service said to then tried again - out of the window. It will not start. Surely there is something that will work. This is 2 units (same model) in 2 days.

    Unit went off and will not come back on. Has an E1 code on it. Have had it about 2 months. Of course it's late at night and the temperature outside is about 100. I am so disappointed in this unit.

It may have overheated or just the oposit, it could have froze. Eitherway there are sensors that will shut off the unit if these conditions exsist. I suggest waiting a while and trying again. Unplug the unit while you wait.

If this does not work your problem is probably more complicated. I would then start by checking any onboard fuses. If you are not knowledgeable about electricity or handy with appliances I suggest hiring a technician.

I woke up today and my air conditioner wasn't working! I tried unplugging it and hitting the reset button and nothing works. The power light on the plug still lights up green whenever it's plugged in, but...

There MIGHT be a small fuse in the control. You would be fortunate if that was the case. Most of these controls just die. If you don't feel like putting a lot of money into fixing the machine I wrote a short article on bypassing that control.

The reset button on the power cord has to be really pushed in until you feel a click. It is a soft button, so you might think you have pushed it in enough but you must feel the click. After the first reset you no longer have to press the button unless you have other electrical power issues that trip the button.

My power went out so when it came back on we had to go flip the switches on the fuse box but now my ac wont work, we even changed out the outlet to see if that was the problem but it still wont work

I assume since you changed the outlet it is a window unit?

Does the fan work?

If so you either have a thermostat that won't engage the power to the compressor or you have a bad capacitor that starts the compressor. Most units have a start and a run capacitor, but they are often in the same can. Sometimes you can ground out the cap- with the unit UNPLUGGED!- by using a screwdriver and shorting each cap pin to ground-. Prepare yourself for a loud POP when you do this. Sometimes this works to get the cap working again- but just sometimes.

Since it quit working after the power went out maybe you had a surge that fried a component. Also, when you changed the outlet did you check that you were actually getting voltage? Depending on your unit it could be a number of things from the cord to a switch. Make sure you have the thermostat set for coldest and see if that does it. Sometimes it is just something simple like that and it happens to the best of us from time to time.

We have a Haier HWfo5xc7-2 air conditioner. Today, when I went to turn it on, there's no power. The outlet works fine. What could be wrong? It worked fine yesterday. I pressed the reset button? Does that...

You can download your product manual by going to this web-site and typing in your model number:
I checked the troubleshooting guide in the manual but it only lists the obvious such as is the unit properly plugged in, is the power button in the "on" position and etc. Are you sure there is power to the outlet? Try the outlet by plugging in a lamp or small appliance to check there is power to it. Let us know how it goes and maybe we can figure out something.

Can't get airconditioner to work


Try to reset the unit by disconnecting the power supply for 10sec. and operate the unit. If wont work then there are some safety device that work or defective. Try counting the blink of your green light so that I can convert the error code.

Maytag A/C window unit

Check all of the connections at the outlet. If everything looks ok test the outlet that it is plugged into with a tester. They can be picked up at most stores for around 8 dollars. If you dont have a tester you can just plug in another device that you have into the outlet and see if it turns on. If everything checks out OK then there is an issue with the A/C unit. It could be alot of different things. My recommendation to you is if it is under warranty contact Maytag and send it in for service. If it is not under warranty you can either contact Maytag and send it in for service or you can call a local heating and cooling shop and see if they can service it for you. Keep me posted - Tech101
