E5 is the fault code for Compressor overheat/malfunction it coulb be caused by the exhaust hose being too long or kinked, remove the exhaust hose and run the unit for an hour and see if your problem goes away, if so re-route the exhaust hose, if not you need to contact the manufacture

SOURCE: when i run the ac

All portable or window ac units are mounted or standing with the back lower housing at a slope

so that the condensed water buildup from the evaporator can drain into a tray or thru a tube out

the back of the unit, depending on what kind of unit you have you may have to take it apart and

make sure the drain for the condensed water is not blocked. some times these units are not

installed correctly, they will not drain properly and standing water with time will turn to rust and

clog up the tube where it needs to flow from the ac unit. good luck!

What causes the exhaust hose to get hot on a windchaser portable AC


make sure its not obstructed, then wrap it up with a towel or other insulative material. it heats up because the heat exhausts through that hose out the window.

Ac leaks


If you are talking room a/c then the holes are water drain holes. The one on the bottom allows water to drip into a garden etc and the one at the back you can fit a hose to drain away

Brand new GE room size ac unit (1 week old) is spiiting water out of the air vent into the room. Unit 100% level.


If a brand new unit is spitting water, i waould suggest that it is short of refrigerant... Get your installer back or the Manufacturer.. You need to hold An ARC licence to do this ( In Australia)

I don't know how to uninstall my ac


have some one steady the unit while you raise the window a bit.carefull,it may want to fall out.pull the bottom of the unit in a bit.if that dosen't change the angle,like if it's sitting on a storm window frame too,place a wood plank between edge of sill & storm window frame to raise the inside bottom of unit a bit above the sill.it only requires a few degrees of tilt.

LEAKING WATER EVEN AFTER DRAINING THROUGH THE BACK HOSE. AFTER USING FOR ABOUT 8 HRS, WATER STARTS TO LEAK AT THE BACK THEN IT STOPS WORKING AND RED LITE FLASHES ON THE ON/OFF BUTTON. IT LOOKS LIKE WATER...


Being that I am the owner of a Haier 12000 BTU portable A/C unit with the same flipping problem & having a husband that works as a refrigeration tech with plenty of experience with A/C units of all types, we have come to the conclusion that the evaporation pans they put into these portable units are either too small or faulty! The best advice I can offer you if you are out of warranty is to raise the unit onto a sturdy & level base (you can use wood planks if nothing else can be found) & attach a hose to the plug (open of course) & run the hose into a bucket. Sadly, I was unaware of how bad our situation was until my husband told me that it is "raining" in our dining room! We'll now have to rip up carpeting (only 5 years old), rip up the old vinyl flooring to check the sub floor & if that's too bad off, we'll have to replace it, then cut out the sheetrock of the ceiling, treat for black mold before it happens (because it will, wet wood & sheetrock make a lovely sort of place for it to grow exponentially!) then rebuild the ceiling! I hope you got help before my answer & good luck!
