    Well people. . .

    I just drilled a hole in the condenser coil trying to drain the cabinet.

    Needless to say. . . Be careful before you drill the cabinet.

Haier Air Conditioners do not have a drain hole or hose like most A/Cs. This problem can easily be solved by carefully drililng about an 1/8 or 1/4 inch hole in the bottom outside edge directly on the metal frame, around the cooling fins.... This will elt the water drain out...if you when outside and looked in while it was spitting you would see the water pooling up in there. Haier expects us to mount these units at an ungodly angle to drain the water, but drilling a small hole will help (really anywhere in that bottom plate would work since the whole bottom is a "drain pan"

    Yes definately, for every cabinet I've seen you only need to drill a hole about 1/8 inch deep, just enouggh to pierce the cabinet. Let the drill do the work... if you bear down all hard and get in a hurry you will shove the drill bit into the innards when it does break the metal...and theres lots of nice soft aluminium and copper for your carbide bit to chew in to :D

Actually the unit is designed that way. The condenser fans on Haier units are designed to pick up the excess water and spray it onto the condenser to cool it. To me it's a dumb idea and causes everyone to hear your AC (sounds horrible) but it's their design. Yes, I have a hole I put into mine to stop the noise and no it doesn't overheat. Is the splashing onto the condenser necessary? - I don't think so personally.

This is probably caused by the unit not draining to the outside. When you install a window unit a good rule of thumb is to canter it to the outside by 1/4" per foot.

How do I program a universal remote to my haier air condioner I lost my original remote

Most universal remotes won't have a code for an air conditioner. You'll need one that is made to work with A/C systems. See: or for remotes that will work with the HWR10XC6 and some other Haier air conditioners.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model and manufacturer of the universal remote you have. I'll try to confirm the available codes and how to program the unit.

I have an Haier AC and it's been great except that when I turn it on now it smells there anyway to fix this problem?

Yes this can be fixed. Use a cleaning solution of bleach and water. take off the front cover. Spray the inside coil and into the vent. Try to get it all the best you can and let it air dry. This should kill any mold.

My haier a/c window unit is spitting water through the vent

check the filter located behind the front panel it usually snaps out also make sure the drain holes on the out side bottom of unit are not stopped up and that the unit is leaned back slightly for drainage freezing is a sign of low air flow or low on freon the coil actually gets colder when freon starts to leak out hope this helps with your problem

Water spitting into room

If your AC is window unit, check the dirt underneath the unit and also check the level of your unit.

If your AC is a central unit, be sure check the drain pipe, should be toward to the outside.
