Re: blowing hot air

Water in the pan is normal, this is the humidity removed from your space. Pan must be emptied regularly. If the unit shuts down after 15 minutes, you may have a blocked hot air duct. Make sure it is flowing freely. This includes makeup air from outside the room to replace that blown outside by the AC.

Just bought used portable ac. it blows great cold air then blows warm air for a while then back to cool andcold... is this normal? if not hwo to fix?

Yes it's normal in most cases. There should be a knob to turn so it cycles on more often. If it's not a window unit, & is a free-standing unit, you might have to empty a water pan or tank on it. As condensation collects on the cooling coils, it collects in a container near the bottom. If it's full of water, it will cycle the cooling off until you empty the water container or some of the water in it evaporates.

Wall AC Unit blows cold air for a little bit then blows hot air. If I turn it off for a while, it will do the same thing.

When you mansion water in the pan, do you mean the indoor coil pan or the outdoor catch "pan"? I've seen some models have a drain plug that's on the bottom of the outdoor panel or underneath. And that plug should remain installed. It uses that water to cool the copper freon tube that curves along the bottom of the outdoor section. With plug removed it can overheat. Basically it does not drain onto the ground outside, it retains its water. And the air entering side of outdoor coil is clean? May sound like repetition(forgive me). The side you see clearly is the air leaving side. The dual shaft motor has a run capacitor that may be weakening. And the outdoor air that passes thru the outdoor coil may be recirculating out then directly back in to the unit causing it to overheat. Anything blocking airflow outside? 10 mins of runtime then shouting down tells me its overheating. It may even be the electrical circuit. Loose connections can cause high amperage, low voltage issue and cause the ac load to over amp. Over amp=over heat. Hope this helps!

SPT WA-1220H Portable Air Conditioner stopped blowing COOL air?

sounds like the compressor has died and is tripping its overload protection. Give it a good funeral, and next time, buy a brand name model.

No Cooling

The water pump or the float valve is not working.

Only blowing cool air, even having set on 30C on remote. No user manual.

Mate, I had exactly the same problem. When I set the thermometer to 30c it cut out, then five minutes later it started blowing hot air out. Hope this helps!

Wont no water to empty or drain

Either the unit is really dirty or it is low on refrigerant. A unit tha is low on refrigerant will start off cold and withing a few minutes, start warming up. If you aren't seeing any water its because of one or both causes listed.

Your base pan may be full of water, check at the bottom of the unit for some drain plug. Drain out the water and start the unit.

Tilt the unit toward the window opening and clear the drain holes in the back and bottom of the unit from debris.
