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.

SOURCE: Portable Air conditioner is not starting and then stopping.

Empty the water out of the collection pan? This will shut the unit down to keep it from ruining your floors. Hope this helps 2rns4u <*{{{>(

I have a portable model# MPPH08CRN1B10 I don't know if it as cold as it should be. Should it be blowing really hot air out the exhaust?

that is how ac units work \By removing the hot inside and blowing it out thenexhaust
being portable it is best to have the exhaust going out a window or have it placed in a door way to prevent the hot air recycling

Remove exhaust hose

U need that hose to direct the warm air outside the area to be cooled. If you remove it, the hot exhaust will stay in the room being cooled and negate the cold air being directed into the room.

That is why regular room AC units are mounted on window sill. Cold air in, hot air out.

I have a PACRWC-HP. We only use it for short periods during Seattle summers. Now in it's third year, it does not evaporate the water filling the small overload every hour. Can it be fixed or should...

Jerry, Windchaser has been out of business for about 5 or 6 months. So, if it requires parts to fix the problem, it will difficult to find them. But, before you properly scrap the unit, check several of the things, that may be causing the problem.

1. The air intake filter may be dirty or clogged. Remove and clean thoroughly, if necessary.

2. The exhaust hose may be drooping from the unit to the window outlet. This allows condensation
to accumulate in the hose, rather than exhaust out the window.

3. Obstruction in exhaust hose will cause the same thing as in # 2. Remove the hose check & clear
any obstructions, as necessary.

I hope this has helped you troubleshoot, find and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Unit shuts off, getting an E5 error. sounds like there is a lot of water inside. the customer service numbers for Windchaser are disconnected. PLEASE HELP!!!!

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

Everstar MPK CR10, blows cold, but won't cycle.

Make sure the exhaust hose isn't longer than the maximum allowed and is not kinked, turned too many times (bends) and is the right diameter as specified in the manual. It sounds like the unit is going off on high head pressure.

If at all possible, change the exhaust hose to a smooth type rather than the corrogated hose that probably came with the unit. The less air restriction in the exhaust the better.

Seal any air leaks at the exhaust or discharge point.

Hot air coming out of back

portable air conditioners mainly have two hoses one hose is exhaust thats the one that is blowing hot air. the one pulling is return.. the hot air blowing out should be exhausted to the outside. the blowing air needs a hose and to be laid out a window the back should have model and serial maybe product number. the two holes are either 4 inch or three inch and most portable units other than hand me downs come with a window frame that allows the hot exchanged air to go outside and cooler air to be used for heat exchange.
