I have a portable air conditioner model LP0711WNR. My issue is when I drain the air conditioner, it only drains about one cup of water. Then, when I turn it back on it and use it, after about an hour it says that the tank is full. I can hear water still in it but it won't drain out and my air conditioner won't work because of it. How can I get the tank to fully drain?


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 ... LG LP0711WNR Portable Air Conditioner

I have a portable air conditioner and the water condensation tank fills in about 4 hours of constant use. Is there any kind of portable water tank that I could attach to my unit that would allow me to empty the tank after overnight use rather than every 4 hours? I am hesitant to drill a hole for the plastic hose to drain outside. Thanks for your help.([email protected])


I would suggest putting a condensate pump in the reservoir, find the tube that empties the water into the reservoir and direct that into the pump. You can run tubing from the pump to a sink or any other drain in the house that is convenient. Puttin ... GE APN10AA Portable Air Conditioner

My Fujitronic FA1050 Portable Air Conditioner says it is full of water after being in use for 1 hour (which makes it blow warm air until I empty the water). There are two drain ports on the unit, one close to the floor, one about 6 inches higher. The user manual says I should be draining water from the higher drain port, and only emptying the water from the lower drain port at the end of the season. When the unit says "Water is full", I open the upper drain port, and no water comes out. I then o


Look at this drain pan for some wires going to the side or down the top. Look for a small hole in the side of the pan or casting this will be the location of the sensor. Sometimes a sharp rap with a screwdriver handle will dislodge the sensor causing ... Fujitronic FA1050 Air Conditioner

We purchased a Whirlpool portable air conditioner in 2005 from Best Buy. Near the end of last summer the air conditioner started leaking water. We started using it again this season and it is still leaking. When my husband drained the water out of it, the water came out of the upper part of the back side of the air conditioner and no water was coming out of the drain at the bottom. When it appeared to be empty, we plugged it in and used it again and it continued to leak water on our carpet.


Check to see if the drain is blocked by particles/debris of any type. Also make sure that the unit is level--as level as possible. I have my Whirlpool Portable AC in 4 inch bed risers so I can drain it really easily. I slip under a small low rise p ... Whirlpool Air Conditioners

I just bought a Danby portable air conditioner (model # dpac5070). The manual tells you how to use the direct drain hose if you want to "vent" the water outside. If I don't want to direct the water outside, do I need to use this hose? The product has a safety shut off feature so the water tank won't overfill. It's almost overfilled twice. I have the hose in the oblong hole on the top flap of the water tank. Am I doing this wrong? Please help!:)


You use the hose only for continuous draining outside of the unit into a bucket or what have you. You don't need to attach the hose at all. I actually need the hose if you want to part with yours. coatings(at)shaw.ca ... Danby Air Conditioners

Water tank full light keeps coming on an shuts the AC off after about 10 minutes on a Amcor A12000E Nanomax Portable Air Conditioner. I drained all the water out of it I could and it does turn back on after I turn it back on and will run for about 10 minutes. Then it beeps 6 or 7 times and the water full light comes back on and shuts it off. There is no more water coming out of it and there is a buzzing when it comes back on but it will blow cold air until it shuts off again. Please help!

Afternoon, I have a major problem with my Dimplex DAC15HC portable air-conditioner. It either requires constant top-ups to its external water tank, or the main evaporative water tank leaks constantly, irrespective of both tanks being emptied on a daily basis. At this rate, I'll be re-carpeting the room the unit is in!! Any help would be gratefully received. Cheers, Simon


Hi SAJJF2,\015\012\015\012Its not leaking. As the fan blows air across the cold coils the water in the air condenses on to the coil. When enough water condenses it forms drops which drip out of the AC unit. In humid parts of the world AC ... Air Conditioners

DeLonghi CN120E alarm light signally to have the water drained every 10-15 minutes. I purchased a DeLonghi CN120 air conditioner the first week of July 2012 and have been using it maybe a few times a week since then. Last night the alarm light came on signalling a full tank. I drained the tank as instructed thru the single tube in the back, and decided to clean the filter while I was doing this. I also vacuumed the intake and output grills. I replugged the drain hole, put the filter back i

Self-Evaporating Technology This summer we are not finding very much if any water in the internal collection tank. We thought our machine was broken so we borrowed the Danby DPAC7599 Portable Air Conditioner and used it in the exact same way. Again very little or no water in the internal collection tank. The only difference I can think of from last summer to this summer is that I never open my western facing window or the blinds at all. We are very near the ocean In Vancouver BC. Last summer whe

Water is leaking from air conditioner inside of house instead of outside. What part of the a/c is the drain located in? Drain may be plugged up? How can I get to the inside of a/c to find the drain area? The a/c has worked properly for many months until now.

After running the A/C for a couple of hours and after a period of rain, I took the air conditioner out of the window. Probably one or two pints of water emptied on the floor. there is an open vent on top of the box on the outdoor side and no visable way to drain water. How do I eliminate the water problem? Thanks, Steve


Hi,Many of the newer A/C window units do not drain the water, but use the fan to splash it up on the coil to evaporate it and help cool the unit...You can drill a hole in the back corner to drain it, but watch that you don't hit the coil ... Crosley CA10WXP Air Conditioner

About the Polar Wind Portable air conditioner: When the compressor tries to kick on it just shuts off again. I tested the start and run capacitors and they tested fine. The coils are clean. The water basin is empty. I can't find any other information on it and don't know if I can buy a part if I did find something that was wrong. The only thing left that I know it might be is the circuit board or a bad winding in the compressor. Any suggestions? Any contact numbers? Thanks
