Danby dpac8020 is leaking from base

I have a Danby dpac8020 air conditioner that just started leaking water from the back left bottom corner. Until now the machine has run beautifully and I've only ever had to empty the internal and external water tanks and wash the filter. The rate in which the water is dripping seems to be consistent with how quickly the water tanks fill and I suspect the water is coming out the bottom rather than into the tanks as it should. I'm ready to take this thing apart. Any suggestions?

First, make sure the unit is level. If so, you have a blockage or kink in the drain tube. Careful inspection should reveal any blockage, & you may be able to poke it thru with a piece of coathanger wire. Don't use excessive force, any block should be easily freed.

SOURCE: external water tank

Dear ziba1--posted the same problem two days ago and it doesn't appear to be on the site yet. Anyway, picked away at this again today (literally took the machine apart) and found the problem to be a clog in the drainage system. This explains why your external tank will not fill and why there is a leak--the drip tray under the compressor is not draining due to the clog in the drainage system. I fixed this simply by taking a narrow device and gently scraping out the drain hole of the drip tray (which is located just below the compressor...the compressor is located on the same side as your air filter). After successfully cleaning out this drain, I proceeded to flush the water out thoroughly with water. Give it a try--worked for me. I had all but given up and had already set up an appointment to have it serviced. Cheers

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.

The base needs to be dumped regularly. The air conditioner sweats water during operation and the pan collects it. Your manual should give you the procedure on how this is done. In some cases there is a hose attached to the drain pan so that you can direct the drainage to a more conventional drain location.
