Danby dpac7008 ac unit... How should float switch/lever look?

I am interested in buying a Danby premiere model #317825.. its an 11,000 BTU Air Conditioning Dual venting system its says its cools up to 450 sq ft. For people who have invested in this system. Can you tell me how much did you pay for it. And it's it worth the money. Do you have major issures with the system or is it as easy to operate as the owner who is selling me his tells me it is? Appeciate any feed back. I don't want to get taken. For people who own the Danby premiere. Are you overall satisfied with it. How much did you pay for it. And is it easy to operate. Any feedback will help! Thanks

Danby Portable A/C Model DPAC 11007, purchased Costco May 19, 2007. Platinum Warranty. For the first few years A/C( only) operating it was not necessary (or rarely) to empty the external tank Then last ...

Eugene, first, let me say, yours is one of the best narratives, of what is happening with your ,that I have read in a long time. You didn't leave me guessing as to what was going on.

I believe one of the problems is that you may be operating the AC Cooling & the Dehumidifier at the same time. If this is the case, the dehumidifier is generating heat, when it's operating and the AC cooling side is working at a lower rate, because the dehumidifier is in operation. Discontinue the use of the dehumidifier on extremely hot days and use only the AC Cooling mode. The AC mode also acts somewhat as a dehumidifier. That's why draining the water tank is required for AC mode too.

I would also be prudent to check the exhaust hoses to make sure they are not clogged or have been bent out of shape. Keeping the air intake filter clean is really important, too.

Aside from the air conditioner, other things can be done to help cool the room. Close all drapes or blinds to block the sun from directly heating the room. This is especially true, if the AC unit is sitting in direct sunlight. If you have a ceiling fan, operate it it as fast as you can stand, in a Clockwise direction. This not only keeps air moving, it also helps the AC unit and creates a windchill, that fools your body into thinking it's cooler than it really is. Personally, I have been doing this for years and have saved a ton of money on electric bills during the summer.

I hope I have been able to help you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Getting the room down to temp....

Danby Consumer help line: 800-263-2629 This is the best I can do for this product line having no information. From my knowledge and experience working with refrigeration and air conditioning there are a few things you should check. Check the voltage being supplied to the unit to insure it is with-in 10% of the name plate specifications. Check the air intake and exhaust hoses for good air flow and that the exhaust is not being recirculated into the intake. I suspect that your problem may be due to the compressor possibly overheating and tripping the internal overload protector. These take time to reset.

Room temperature has not changed since hooking up new portable a/c

This may sound dumb but ( 1) Do you have the warm air from the unit to the exterior of the space? If the condenser is in the space your putting the heat your trying to remove right back into the space. ( 2 ) There should be an air supply and an air return in the space only. With that there should be a temperature difference of 16 to 20 degrees between the supply and return. ( 3 )A 1 ton unit usually will cool approximately 400 square feet. ( 4 ) It may take a while to pull the space temp down due to pulling the heat and moisture from the ceiling, walls, and floor. This could take 6 hours or more the first time you use the system in a space.

Outside unit has frozen

Check your air filter and evaporator at the indoor, and also the outdoor condenser coil if clean, be sure that the outdoor has no obstruction to both front and back of the unit. If dirty then clean both indoor and outdoor. If clean let the ice melt by turning of the unit and unplug the power cord or off the circuit breaker to reset the error if error is present. And on the unit again and observe if icing is present when unit is operating. If icing is present after 10 to 30 min of operation then the unit is under charge.And while unit is operating adjust your thermostat to higher temp. to check if thermostat is operating normally. If the outdoor will trip off after the adjusting the temp. then your thermostat control is ok if not then the thermostat control have a problem.

There may be a starting delay built in, which will not allow restarting within 5 or 10 minutes. Other than that, the control unit may be faulty & require replacement.
