These have a tank in the bottom that can fill up in high humidity. The red LED light for the pump flashes when this happens. You need to take the black plug out from the back and drain it into something. There is a white cap that holds the black rubber plug in. The white cap is threaded on over the black rubber plug.

If it has been used for two or more seasons then you probably have some goop in the pan that causes it to not drain properly and the only way that I can get mine cleaned out is to take it apart. There is a capacitor inside that you will want to be careful around.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like you have a short in the high voltage wiring. The compressor may be bad.

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.

Breaker keeps tripping on generator when I turn on ac in travel trailer


4KW is marginal for HVAC compressor. Breakers get weak with time. Assuming th gen is running properly and the correct voltage is available. A HVAC unit can take 6 times the start current than it takes to run, so it is possible the inrush is too much
