Question about Danby DPAC12031 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Air conditioner seems to have a programming short

I blew a fuse this morning in the outlet my Danby Portable AC unit is located in (DPAC12030) and since then it's been beeping with all kinds of "programming demons". I cannot power off with the front panel and my remote doesn't seem to work. It just goes from farenheit to celcius, up in temp, down in temp, etc. with no sign of stopping. How can I reset this unit to stop the madness??!!

Need my users manual

Here is a link to a 12,000 BTU, Danby Portable AC Unit. Since you failed to mention the model number of the unit you have, I can only guess that is the same as yours. In any event, all Danby Portable AC units work the same. You can download and print this manual for future reference.

I hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My amana window unit blew a fuse in my fuse box I replace it now thw window unit won't come on

Candy, if the fuse blew in the first place, it was either overloaded or the AC unit has an electrical short in it. However, it may not come on now, without turning the Master Switch on the AC unit OFF and unplugging it from the outlet. Wait 10 minutes before plugging it back in. Then turn the unit ON. If it functions properly then the problem is solved. If not, the circuit board in the unit has been fried and will have to be replaced. Also, be sure that only the AC is plugged in to this receptacle. More than one will overload the fuse/circuit.

Hope this information helped you. Please rate my reply.

Danby ALSO does not cool 3 days old

Take it back where you bought it. A 12,000 BTU unit should be more than enough for a 192 square foot room, so there is some problem with the unit.

Cuts in and out

sounds like very low on freon which also keeps the motor running cooler...suggest a refill because of its large btu capacity, but expensive maybe...get quotes.
