Red light is flashing continuesly
Ok I found a temporary solution. I opened up the unit (yes there are a lot of screws) I checked the float switches and they worked and even unplugging the water level wire connection to the main board did not get rid of the red flashing light. But if you unplugged the connection from the front panel to the main board but leave the infrared remote still plugged in the main lights and control are not on but you can still work the unit by remote. When in this configuration the compressor will come on and the unit will cool. So I think that part of the problem is on the front panel circuit board or maybe somewhere on the main board. But physically the compressor/relay/ switches work. A short term solution until I can get a new board.

I just purchased
There should be a plug on the rear of the unit near the bottom of the back. If the plug is missing/removed, it should have a barbed or threaded end for a drain hose to be installed. Place the drain hose (a typical garden hose will suffice) over the end of the barbed/threaded section and secure with a an automotive hose clamp. Some units did come with a "male" hose end in which the "female" end (what you would screw onto a outdoor faucet) garden hose can be directly threaded onto the drain connection. In either case, this drain needs to be leak proof to prevent additional water (condensate) from leaking onto the floor. The drain is ideal for situations where there is high humidity in which the A/C condenses the water vapor out of the air during A/C operation.

Water resevior is empty and light stays on?
If the high water level switch closes, the
compressor and condensor fan motors shut
off, and the water full indicator LED lights. The
water must be drained manually. Since you have dumped the water the high water level switch must be stuck in the off position. Page 42 of this manual shows the high and low water switch cover plate removed and the floats. Check the floats to see if something is making it stick or it has a hole in it. This manual is from WP but I imagine all of them type ACs come from the same source. PORTABLE AC SERVICE MANUAL
