Question about Heating & Cooling
Our Hampton Bay portable air conditioner constantly drains water! The "drain water" light goes on and the unit shuts off until you drain the water. If you leave the water drainage hose attached and a pitcher under it, the unit will continue to run but will constantly empty water into the pitcher -- by the time we wake up in the morning the pitcher is almost full. We have never had this much water accumulate in such a short amount of time, why is it all of a sudden doing this? Thanks in advance for any advice.
this is the pdf of the manual for that particular model of a/c.
hope that helps.

1. Power down the air conditioner using the "power" button on the front
2. Unplug the air conditioner from the wall socket.
3. Hold the front panel "power" button down and plug the air
conditioner in. Continue to hold the power button down as the machine
goes through a brief test sequence (fan & compressor each come on
briefly, etc). There is a "beep" sound at the end of the test sequence,
and the machine will be off. At this point, you can release the power
4. Unplug the air conditioner.
5. Plug the air conditioner back in.
6. Congratulations! You should now be able to operate the air
conditioner normally for another 720 hours, but only if you followed
the instructions above EXACTLY.
If you doubt the veracity of this information, or it does not work as
expected, you can get it directly from the source at:
which is the Sharp customer service line. But, you'll need to call
between 7 AM and 7 PM US Central time, and have your model number and
serial number ready

Beaumark air conditioners are made by GE…head over to their site and download a manual for their air conditioners - they are very similar.

Mine has a model number of PCA061D.
If you remove the water capture reservoir, there is a sticker that has the model number.
