Portable a/c water problems

I have a 9,000btu Maytag portable a/c and it was working fine but recently it started to beep for full water tank. I would drain it but a few hours later, same thing. I'm thinking there is a water evaporator problem? Any assistance you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Re: portable a/c water problems

Either the area you are cooling is extremely humid or your a/c is freezing up, shutting off  and melting alot of ice before it comes back on.

Whers does water evacuate from portable ac unit

there is a holding tank in the bottom of the unit, on the front right by the floor is a rubber cap that plugs this tank. water evaporates from there, if the tank gets too full, the power button will flash red and the unit will not turn on. put pan under, pull plug and drain if this happens. if it doesnt happen, don't worry about exhausting the water as its not a problem.

Water leaks under portable air con unit

Look for a crack on the water tank or a dried up gasket on the tank. Loose hose clamps can allow a leak as well.

Haier portable AC water collection tank full in one hour.

My unit was working fine for a couple years but now it won't evaporate. It still cools fine but it also collects about 16 ounces of water every hour and then shuts itself off until I drain it. I'm wondering it the evaporative mechanism it broken some how.

My portable air conditioner is beeping and saying full, how do i get it to stop beeping

Portable air conditioners work much like a dehumidifier in that they remove moisture from the air. This condensation accumulates in a container that may need to be emptied. Check to see if there is a removable container full of water.

Hi, I just purchased this used. It was working fine for one day, but now it won't turn on. Can u help? Haier CPN12XH9 12000 BTU Portable Air

If the water collection tank is full, it will not turn ON. Since you said the unit worked fine for one day and now it won't turn ON, more than likely, that's the problem. After draining the tank, the unit should reset itself and turn ON like it should.

The drain plug is on the rear of the unit, just above floor level. You can either drain it into a low sided pan or bowl that's capable of holding up yo a quart of water. O r roll the unit to a floor drain or outside to drain it. If you choose to drain it into a pan, turn the unit OFF & unplug it, before draining it.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa

The water is being removed from the air, you need to empty the water out of the unit as needed, sometimes as often as every two hours, the beeping is a water tank full alarm telling you to empty the tank as per instructions, there is a drain plug on the bottom of the unit you may want to move the unit to a drain until you know the amount of water the tank holds so you know how big of a containor to use

The water empty indicator keeps flashing indicating we need to empty it BUT it is empty !!!!Now the aircon won't work We emptied a lot of water however now it keeps beeping a warning,the compressor shuts...

I am NOT aquainted with the Maytag Portable AC..... But There has to been a sensor that tells the unit that the water bin is full...... If there is any moisture on the sensor and touching a ground probe then even though the bin is empty the sensor is still making a connection to ground. If you can trace out the wire that goes to the sensor you can unplug it from the board till it dries out or you replace it..... Only if you do make sure you empty the bin often or you will have water every where because the unit won't shut off if the water bin is full..... Hope this helps

My danby portable air conditioner won't turn on

New or used? Is is plugged in? Is there electric at the plug? Plug a light in there and make sure it works as a test. Next, check the water pan to make sure it is not full of water. There is a switch there that could be causing the problem.
