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.

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.

I have an Amana portable AC, Model # AP125D. When you turn it on, it trips the GFI. Can you help me. Thanks.


This indicates a problem of electrical leakage inside your AC and it should be inspected by an electrician for your safety GFIs trip due to an imbalance of current between the 'hot' and neutral lines which means that current in traveling from the 'hot' line through some path to the ground (safety pin on the plug). If you use any method to fool the GFI (there are some) you should anticipate having nasty shocks from any exposed metal on the AC; not good idea.
If a professional finds no fault, it is quite possible that the GFI itself is failing; I have replaced several which were tripping on insignificant events.

No power to portable air condition


If the filters are clogh with dirt , the unit breaker will shut it off ,it's avery common problem , but if after the filters were cleaned it keeps shutting off , could be a bad fan motor or the compressor itself could be grounded.
