Question about Danby DPAC8399 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

I've got a Danby DPAC 8399-4 portable heater/air conditioner. We usually use it as an A/C but we're trying to use the heater for the winter; we just brought it out of the closet. The fan barely works (and makes a wierd noise), and when I set it to the heat setting, it makes a click and shuts off entirely. Any suggestions?

Check for obstructuions in the fan housing that may be hitting the fan blade, causing the noise and improper air flow.

Improper air flow will cause the uniot to overheat quickly and it will shut down on its high temperature limit switch.

You may also have a bad fan. Bad bearings will make a bad noise as well. Thios will cause the same symptoms described above.

Check for abstructions, if you can find one, remove it, if not replace the fan. You can usually reset the limit by simply turning off power and turning it back on after 10 min.

Slide the rear cover of the remote in the directions of the way the arrows are pointing.Continue pulling gently until the cover separates completely from the unit. Insert 2 - AAA Batteries in the direction indicated inside the holder. Reinstall the cover and you're ready to go.

I have a Danby Mod.# DPAC 10061 portable A\C, the


This sounds like it could be a power supply problem. It may be very simple. I think I would first just unplug the unit, open it up, look for the PS connectors, and check/wiggle them to make sure there is good contact.

I went to the Danby's website:
https://www.danby.com/

And I was unable to find any service or owner's manuals in PDF format. The site does however have a locator for service shops. Good Luck!

My danby air conditioner/dehumidifier model dpac 8399-4 leaks water all over the floor and never fills the holding tanks what can I do to fix this problem?


Probably needs cleaning. I assume it is on a level surface. Water drips from the evaporator coil into a collection tray of some type and then drains into the holding tank, this tray is either broken or the outlet is plugged.
Good Luck,
