Danby DPAC10061 portable air conditioner problem

I purchased this air conditioner unit a couple months ago and it has not worked right since the start. When blowing cold air it works but as soon as the compressor turns off, it starts to blow hot air. As well, the as it blows cool air, the "room" temperature seems to go up, sometimes as high as 40 degrees Celsius. I have read and re read the installation manual and I am positive I have it set up correctly (vents are hooked up to a window, etc.).

You may have a factory defective unit that is not turning off the anti-frost heating coil (I have assumed yours contains this item based on your problem description). I would trade it in for a new unit, again assuming you have a warranty or the store offers a good in-store return policy. If this plan bombs, then open the unit and find the heating coil near the cool side of the radiator fins. then disconnect the power wires to the heater and prevent electrical short to wires with quality electrical tape.

My dpac10061 has started leaking on the bottom. it seems as it is holding water in the air conditioner. is there anything i can do on my end, i cannot find my manual. thanks, John Hennessy

locate the drain line from the front of unit it will go to the coil in the back of the unit. run a wire or some other material like that down the drain line until it starts to drain outside. if possible pour about 1/2 cup of bleach in drain pan at frount of unit. this will kill alge that growes in unit and stopes up drains.

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:

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!
