1 Answer

Danby spac8006 My Danby A/c unit will not kick in. When I turn the A/c on the unit sounds like it's trying to kick in, the green light comes on for about three seconds then starts to flash about 8 times. This happens about every 3-5 minutes.

Check your Freon pressures. If you have no leaks, your low pressure switch probably needs replaced.

Model DPAC10071 everything lights up but nothing will kick in

Rick, if the water collection tank(s) are full, the unit will not turn ON, until they are drained.
Also, you may not have the temperatures set low enough for the unit to turn ON.
On a more technical side, Current leaking or pressing test button on LCDI Plug.
Remember to press the Reset Button after resolving the technical side issue.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

I have a Danby Silhouette 10,000 BTU portable A/C.. it has recently stopped turning on. The panel with buttons lights up and works, but the unit itself will not turn on. Any ideas on what the problem is?...

If the unit was set in Automatic Timer Mode, it will not turn ON until the set time is reached. Try deactivating the Timer Mode. If that doesn't work. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes. During this timeout, the unit should have time to reset itself, so that when you plug it back in and turn it ON, it will have reverted back to the original factory settings.

If you have misplaced your Owner's Manual, I have included a link to a Danby Model that is similar to yours, in the way that it functions. You can download and print the manual for future reference if you like.

I hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Danby ALSO does not cool 3 days old

Take it back where you bought it. A 12,000 BTU unit should be more than enough for a 192 square foot room, so there is some problem with the unit.

Danby DAC5020 Air Conditioner fan works but not compressor

It could be as simple as being low on refrigerant. Depends on how expensive the unit is if its worth recharging and how big the unit is. Some small units will need to have a recharge point fitted which cost more of course.

Hi fdisc I feel quite sure your compressor is going straight to ground you need to get someone to check the comp, for its resistance and he or she will soon let you know for sure.
