Turn it off and let it thaw. Once this is done remove and clean the filter. I am assuming that all the fans are operational too. Finally do not turn the temperature down too far. Just set it to the temp that you want it to be. Anything below 70 may result in a freeze situation.

If non of the above work, you will need a technician to measure the refrigerant levels in the system.

I have a Hampton Bay window air conditioner unit. It was leaking water from the front below the grill and now it has stopped working. I think the drain holes may be clogged. I cannot figure out how to...

Good chance the drain holes are clogged but that shouldn't cause it to stop working. I believe you need a service call or if the unit was inexpensive, scrap it and go for a new one. I repair them but most AC companies won't touch them. Sears might tackle it.

I have the amana ap148d and so far today i have had to drain it 3 times this is rediculous. it is not on the dehumidify mode so what is the problem

Dehumidifing is a produce of air conditioning, I would be thinking of a way to drain the tank with a drain hose so it will run continues. The water should slow down if your house is tight, but will still be contunue to make condensate.

My hampton bay air conditioner has started leaking badly after running it lfor a few hours, from the front right side

For window mount units, the unit must slope towards the outside. Water is a normal byproduct of refrigeration, like condensation on a glass of ice water.... Volume of water is not an issue, water dripping inside is. All water is intended to go outside, via unit slope.

What does the "dry mode" mean in a Hampton Bay air

"dry mode" normally means, to dehumidify only. this will not cool the air nor heat it consistently.

What does the "dry mode" mean in a Hampton Bay air

The "dry mode" dehumidifies the air. This is useful when you do not need to cool the air but the relative humidity is higher than you want to have inside. You get the advantage of bringing in the fresh air without increasing the indoor humidity.

I hope this helps.

My Danby Premiere DPAC 13009 is leaking water through the bottom. I have attached the continuous drainage hose, and no water is going through it. I tried to manually drain the tank using the drain at the...

Water is collected from cooling mode, not just dehumidifier mode. It does not always evaporate into the exhaust stream due to design limitations.

Of course the water should never leak even on the hottest day. Two suggestions:

Try removing the hose and attaching the external tank to see if it has any effect. Otherwise, you'll need to locate the exact source of the leak.

It is running well but leaking water...Is there suppose to be a drain?

The leaking water is the condensate from the evaporator coil produced as the unit dehumidifies the air.

The condensate should drip into a pan which has a drain which can be directed to the desired location (may need to add a drain hose to the drip pan).

The drain may be just clogged -- hope this helps you investigate the situation.
