    If your humidity is high...10 gallons is not extreme.

I have a Danby DPAC12030 and it always stops working (in cooling mode) after 1 or 2 hours with the water tank full light on. The 2 water collection tanks are almost empty (external and internal) and to...


Generally, it is a clog from airborne dust and lint, that's picked up by the unit while in operation.
Clearing the tubing usually solves the problem. You can use an appropriately sized 18" long plastic Zip Tie or a long pipe cleaner, But, NO wire coat hangers. Be sure the unit is OFF & unplugged before attempting any cleaning. When you remove the buckets, look for either a drain hole or a drain tube in the top of the bucket cavities. Carefully insert the Zip Tie or Pipe Cleaner into the hole or tube and continue to insert it, until you reach a bend in the tubing. Gingerly, work it past this bend, unit it bottoms out or you run out of Usable Zip Tie. The slowly remove it while rotating (twisting) it. This will dislodge any clogs As you reach the inserted tip, be prepared, as some water may follow.

I hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa..

Dripping inside! The unit is also dripping outside (as I guess it should) but now has started dripping inside after about a half hour's use. The angle of the unit has not changed. Could there be a clog...


The base of the unit is like a tray which collects all the condensation water. At the back of the unit (the part that normally sticks out the wall/window) there is a small tube where the water comes out. It is possible that this hole is blocked up with dust that the unit has drawn in and once it gets wet will block the water run off tube or pipe that can be fitted to it. If this tube is not cleared the tray will fill up and over flow everywhere. Hope this helps you.

Water leaking from base of unit during operation


dehumidification is something that AC units do as a by-product of cooling so yes, it is acting as a dehumidifier. there is a coil (copper tubing snaking back and forth through metal fins like on a radiator) that water condenses on and drips off of. That water will fall in to a pan and then will either evaporate or run through a drain. Make sure the path from the coil to the drain pan is clear. The water will either drip down (pan sloped to a corner or hole) or run through a tube to the drain pan. The drain pan is the part that had the drain plug in it. If that pan was dry the condensate is reaching the pan. If it is full that means either the drain is plugged up or the unit is pulling humidity out of the air faster than it can evaporate. Check to make sure any drain tube is clear and that the path for the condensate (water) is sloped the right way - not shaken loose or tipped to the wrong side.
That should get you started. Let me know if I can be of any other help.

Good Luck!

Water leaking out of unit, not out of flow tube.


Some models have a hose, some don't , maybe the drain hole it's restricted, condensor normally it's in the back of the unit, you might have to remove one of the side panels.

No water in bucket when AC tells me its full


remove the drain bucket and look inside. there should be a hose that runs from the evaperator to the drain bucket. if you can blow air through hose to see if it is clogged. or try to take casing off and pour a little bleach/water mixture down tube , it probably has some mold built up in it

Licking water on my Royal Sovereign 1000 es


There is a little hole about one inch above the the drain tube and out of it should come a rubber strap connected to a plug for the drain tube. On the far left of the control panel is a diagram of a bucket under a water drop, just below is an led that comes on when the water tank is full and needs to be emptied. I just roll mine out on the porch and pull the plug. Also, when the tank is full the unit should shut off.

Narrow tube v. plug and cap?


If the unit stops working and some kind of a 'water level full' indicator appears then un bend it and un plug it and then let the water drain into a bucket.  If it continues to indicate that the internal water tank if full you may want to run a hose to a drain in the floor or into a bucket to let the water drain away and the unit keep running without stopping.

Hotpoint MAC-130 air conditioner dripping water


You need to blow out the drain line where it hooks up to the pan and clean out the drip pan. It doesn't matter how clean you keep the filter, that's just to keep the evaporator coils clean, which is important in itself. But algae will grow in the drip pan if it is not tilted to drain correctly and will clog up the drain line. If you put a level on the top of the unit, the bubble should JUST BARELY break the line on the OPPOSITE side from the drain outlet on the pan. Hope this helps.

A lot of H2O and Alarm


You may have a drain sensor problem. If your machanical you can try to tie the sensor together to see if this allows the unit to run, if so, replace the sensor.
