Water condensate tanks keep filling up. Never needed to empty them before with many years of use.

Rick, check the hoses are not clogged or plugged. There is probably a small pump which may have quit and will need replaced. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Tuble dryer leaking, water not collecting in the water draw, tripping electricity, keeps coming up with the sign to empty water although water draw is empty

You didn't mention what brand appliance you have, so I'm only guessing. It may be that the water pump is jammed by some foreign object that has worked it's way down the drain line to the pump and locked it up. That not only would explain the leaking, it would also trip the circuit breaker when the pump stalls and overheats. Although you didn't say what brand this appliance is, I suspect it an all in one washer/dryer.

In any event, without knowing more details on what you really have and the manufacturer's name, all I can recommend is consult your Owners Manual or call a service technician.

Sharp CV-P10NC AC unit it has a puddle of water coming down.

earlier models had a pan you had to empty .. your model has a small pump that is supposed to pump the water out the hot air vent (that goes thru the window} .. since its leaking it is likely that the pump inlet is clogged ... you might have to remove a panel to get at that ... it will be near the bottom of the unit (near the drainage nozzle) ... also check the hose that goes out thru the outside vent .. make sure its not cracked, clogged or smashed ... temporarily you can use the drain nozzle to drain off the water to a lower area (it cant drain up without the pump) ...

The water reservoir no longer being emptied by the pump.

I have the same exact problem suddenly. Unit is only 11 months old and not used that often. Bucket fills up and unit will switch to fan only. Drain hose (small black one) is not clogged but bucket keeps filling up. Never had to empty the bucket until yesterday, now I did it four times in one day (so far). Did you ever find a fix?

We have to empty the water frequently, is there a way to cut down on how often we have to do this?


If the a/c is always in a single spot in the room you can extend a hose going out. Another suggestion would be putting a pump on the bucket pumping out water so that it would automatically empty itself. A small aquarium pump would do.

I hope this helps

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...

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. Putting the pump inside the reservoir is a safe guard in case the pump fails, the water will fill and turn the unit off instead of flooding the floor. It would actually probably trip your breaker once the water hit the voltage on the pump but always better safe then sorry. Check out these pumps at amazon, you don't need anything fancy.

Good Luck

My portable frigidaire air conditioner bucket light on

The actual bucket is located inside the machine at the bottom.  To access it, you must unscrew all of the screws and take the front panel off.  You cannot empty it from this side so it is not worth taking the machine apart.  
However, in order to empty the bucket, there is a small black plug at the bottom left hand side at the rear of the machine.  Be careful when pulling out the plug because the water will immediately drain.  
Good luck.

My automatic condensate pumps keeps running

Either drain tube is plugged so that it can't pump out or the float switch is hung up in the on position. See if it is full of water or empty. Full, check the hose. Empty, check the float
