Sounds like the compressor is not running. This model had lots of problems with over heating. It also will never really blow more than a moderate cooling through it. Since you have cleaned all the filters and is still 100 deg, I believe the failure will be the compressor itself or the capacitor.

If you find an oily residue in the drain or on the pipes, it may have simply leaked the refrigerant out. Good Luck!

SOURCE: exhaust hose

i could not find that model number on the haier website www.haieramerica.com you can get the manuals and parts list there. you dont need the haier hose however lowes and home depot sell what im guessing is three or four inch hose that you can use say a dryer vent flex hose or alumaflex hose to connect this unit. unless you are going for the looks.

SOURCE: Air intake via hose & window or intake from room only?

Hello artrey3 The answer is yes, BUT the unit will be exausting room/basement air outside ruining any efficency the unit is rated for.Also you will need makeup/fresh air in the basement. The unit exausting air can put the basement in a vacuum/negitive pressure pulling in air from the chimney!

Is it normal for the window extraction kit hose to get very hot when using the portab Dimplex air conditioner? Would it be OK to wrap it in insulation to prevent the heat radiating back into the room?

It is normal for the exhaust hose to be hot as it is transferring the heat from the room to the outside.
There should be no problem in insulating the hose, as I doubt the hose would melt, and this would make the whole system more efficient.

What causes the exhaust hose to get hot on a windchaser portable AC

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.

My exhaust hose has a tear. where can I get a replacement

You can find a substitute at any home center. In the Heating & AC Parts section of the store. Just be sure to get the same diameter and use the existing connectors off the old one.

Same problem with the leaking from the base of the soleus unit

There is nothing wrong with the unit, you just are in a humid area, the water is from the air.

The water is being pulled from the air, that is part of how it cools, by condensing water.

Some units have hose fittings that can be hooked up to normal garden hoses and routed outside.

You could also install something like that yourself.

Air exhaust hose gets extremely warm

The Pinguino's exhaust pipe has to be attached to the window bracket to direct the air hot air out of the room, otherwise the room can't cool properly.
The owner's manual has several troubleshooting remedies for you to try:
1)  If the window is open, close the window. 2)  If there is a heat source in the room (burner, lamp, etc.), eliminate the heat source. 3)  If the exhaust hose is detached, connect the exhaust hose.  (My recommendation is to connect the exhaust hose to the window bracket and direct the air outside.) 4)  If the air filters are clogged, clean or replace the filters.
Remedies that aren't mentioned in the manual, but you might find helpful:
1)  Make sure that there are no kinks in the hose, and that the hose either remains straight or has a gentle curve when directing it into the window bracket.
2)  A sunny window reduces the maximum power and efficiency of the unit.  Placing it in a sunny window reduces your BTUs by at least 600, which means the maximum square footage of cooled space is reduced.  Cooling a kitchen requires at least 4,000 BTUs alone, which is nearly half of the unit's BTUs.  Try to place the unit by a window that receives minimum to no direct sunlight.
Finally, stating the obvious, if the room isn't cooling, the room is too large for the unit.  The PACL90 cools up to 400sqft.  Bear in mind that the air from these portable air conditioners cannot move around corners very well, so try to set it by a window in the central part of the room.

Solebus heating

yes, it is intended that way. I also have a Soleus and a special manual addendum sheet was inside the manual and it pointed out this feature..I think Soleus had a lot of customer phone-ins over this...I guess the idea for the exhaust is to withdraw moisture from the room, since anytime air is heated or cooled, moisture is a by-product that must be eliminated.
