Hampton Bay Portable Air Conditioner

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.

Hi,

1. Power down the air conditioner using the "power" button on the front
panel.
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
button.
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:

1-800-237-4277

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

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

I had the same problem, you have to empty the water pan in the rear of the unit. In the heat mode it will NOT evaporate the water like in the air conditioner mode. If you use it a lot in the heat mode and have a lot of moisture in the house you will have to modify the water outlet to have it constantly draining in a pan or out of the house.

The easiest way, is to tilt it over slightly when you drain it. But, be very careful doing this, as the unit has caster wheels and you don't want it to get away from you. If you have a helper, so much the better. Remember to always turn the unit OFF & Unplug it, before draining the water from the tank.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Air conditioner shuts down constantly, need to


Sorry but you are just going to have to keep emptying it. These types or air conditioners are also use as de-humidifiers and unless you can place it somewhere where you can connect a drain hose it is going to require many trips to dump the holding tank of the condensation.

Amana AP095R Portable Air Conditioner is dripping water constantly. It didn't use to do this. What's wrong here?


all air conditioners condense water .. the water is normally drained to the outside thru a hole near the outside bottom of the unit .. the unit has to be mounted so that it doesnt tilt inward .. the drain hole has to be cleaned once in a while ... if its clogged or if the unit is tilted inward then the water will drain inside the house .. less likely but possible is a cracked or damaged drip pan inside the unit ... thats a shallow pan under the condenser (cold) coil that captures the water and directs it toward the outside drain .. so check the tilt and clean the drain

Wont no water to empty or drain


Either the unit is really dirty or it is low on refrigerant. A unit tha is low on refrigerant will start off cold and withing a few minutes, start warming up. If you aren't seeing any water its because of one or both causes listed.

Excessive water draining from portable A/C


It appears that you have changed the location of the unit, I mean have you relocated to an area whwre the humidity is high, usuallly coastal areas have high humidity.If not is there a door that is being constantly left open causing a lot of fresh high humidity air into the room
