Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

Looking to set up a KY-26/AV1 unit and don't have the manual. Seems pretty simple. Looks like I just put exhaust in bottom of window. Black hose hooks to back....does it just drain into bucket or pan. Any other tricks? Just don't want damage the unit by hooking it up wrong. Thanks, Brett

SOURCE: Had a question, can you place the two hoses that

Hi, yes you can, but make sure bucket is big enough to fetch all water from machine, always keep hose same level with water in tub, when machine is in operation. lowering hose to floor could get water out by gravity. it's better to put drain hose in sinks, or some form of plumbing, work machine, don't let machine work you, but if it's more convenient for you to drain in bucket, sure, it's o.k. good luck.

SOURCE: APE08AK GE Portable Room Air Conditioner isn't draining

I had the same problem and unscrewed and removed the back cover (AFTER I UNPLUGED THE UNIT) and noticed there is a small black tube that the drain tube connects to. Mine was broken off track and I had to physically remove the small black tube, put it back in it's place and super glued new tabs along the side so it would tilk back and drain the water in the bucket vs. the floor via the unit.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: drain hose in floor drain but fills up water bucket

wow, that's a weird one there. just to check, you did turn thr drain connection all the way down and remove the cap? nothing inside the drain connector? the hose is not too small or run too far? is the water coming out of the hose and in to the bucket at the same time if it is I would think ther is an internal leak somewhere and take it back for an exchange if new. good luck let me know if this wasn't any help for ya

SOURCE: Everstar MPK10CR-1 water not draining into receptacle

there is probably alot more humidity in your area this year than in the past. these units will the the condenstion water to help cool themselves by splashing it onto the condensing coil. the unit is apparently making more condesation then it can use os the extra goes into the collection pan. the FIX is hook up the drain hose.

I have a unit with no exhauste hose conecter and no nozzel fitting covers or a window panel

Sadly this company seems to be out of business and parts unavailable. You can get vent hose at lowes. I attached the hose to a unit with a couple of small metal brackets, zip ties and vent tape. For the window part, I cut a piece of plywood, painted it white and cut a hole for the vent hose. Attached it with zip ties and silver vent tape.

Hello, I need the hose to drain water outside that fits the fridgidair portable air conditioner #FAPO9EP1Z1. Is there another small tube or is there any other hoses or vents that I need? I don't see...

impreston - with out the following parts , you really don't have "just the air conditioner."

1- Flexible Exhaust Hose
2- Hose Adapters
1- Sliding Window Kit
1-Foam Window Seal
1-Remote Control

The drain hose is something you supply. A garden hose, no longer than 5 feet will do if you want it to be a continusos drain, rather than drain into the water collectiong bucket. But, without the first 4 items lister above, you won't be able to operate the unit.

Here is a link that may be of some help to you, since you don't have an Owner's Manual.

You will beed to contact Frigidaire (1 -800-374-4432 ) for the parts you're missing.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Looks like you just have to take off the outer cover. From the parts diagram I looked at this looks like a counter top unit. If so, unplug the unit and then remove the outer cover and then locate the lamp and replace it. Looks pretty easy to get to.

The grey drain hose split, anyone know how to replace this? Is it attached to the drain pump in the front? Also discovered that black drain tube is clogged at the front filter. This tube seems to be...

the drain hose is indeed attached to the pump area... sounds like you may be on well water if it is breaking the hose down that bad... if not that is unusual to have hoses break down like that... its not hard to replace the hose as they just have hose clamps on them ,but yes you do have to tear apart unit to get down to drain pump assembly... some of the units have a front kick plate you can remove to get to them and some you actually go into from the rear... i didn't look this model up but we work on all appliances and normally there is a way to access the drain pump.... some units front loaders you can actually tilt up and the bottom plate will remove to gain access to it also... just going to have to look around and make access the easiest way for you... once your in though it is a simple task to replace hose...

There is a black tubing where the exhaust hose goes therefore i can not get the exhaust hose on.what is this black hose for? do i have to reroute this?

There is no exhaust hose on a A/C unit. That black hose, or seal tight, has wires in it. Are you talking about the hose from the drain pan. If that is what you are talking about. Put a water hose on the drain and blow out the blockage. make sure the drain hose by the condensor outside is not barried. Put a 90% fitting on the end of the out side drain hose faceing up, to keep water in it to keep out critters.

Chain is off and I am not sure how to get the adjusting screw in

You don't need the adjusting screw, if it is missing, you can still run the saw. Get the chain straightened out on the blade, with the cover on if you can, keep the cover bolt loose, put the blade in a vise, pull on the saw and tighten the cover bolt at the same time, make sure the chain moves, as long as it is not dangling down real loose, you should be all set. My adj screw bit the dust years ago, so did the safety bar. Still works great.

Exhaust hose

i could not find that model number on the haier website you can get the manuals and parts list there. you dont need the haier hose however lowes and home depot sell what im guessing is three or four inch hose that you can use say a dryer vent flex hose or alumaflex hose to connect this unit. unless you are going for the looks.

Hot air coming out of back

portable air conditioners mainly have two hoses one hose is exhaust thats the one that is blowing hot air. the one pulling is return.. the hot air blowing out should be exhausted to the outside. the blowing air needs a hose and to be laid out a window the back should have model and serial maybe product number. the two holes are either 4 inch or three inch and most portable units other than hand me downs come with a window frame that allows the hot exchanged air to go outside and cooler air to be used for heat exchange.

My Unit is running but is saying it is full

yes you do need to drain the water that has built up. there is a little hose with a plug in it located at the bottom rear under the exhaust hose. but be sure to drain it somewhere so that you don't ruin your floor. the water of course builds up from the ac's condensor. It doesn't take all that long to get full either.

Air exhaust hose gets extremely warm

The Pinguino's exhaust pipe has to be attached to the window bracket to direct the air hot air out of the room, otherwise the room can't cool properly.
The owner's manual has several troubleshooting remedies for you to try:
1)  If the window is open, close the window. 2)  If there is a heat source in the room (burner, lamp, etc.), eliminate the heat source. 3)  If the exhaust hose is detached, connect the exhaust hose.  (My recommendation is to connect the exhaust hose to the window bracket and direct the air outside.) 4)  If the air filters are clogged, clean or replace the filters.
Remedies that aren't mentioned in the manual, but you might find helpful:
1)  Make sure that there are no kinks in the hose, and that the hose either remains straight or has a gentle curve when directing it into the window bracket.
2)  A sunny window reduces the maximum power and efficiency of the unit.  Placing it in a sunny window reduces your BTUs by at least 600, which means the maximum square footage of cooled space is reduced.  Cooling a kitchen requires at least 4,000 BTUs alone, which is nearly half of the unit's BTUs.  Try to place the unit by a window that receives minimum to no direct sunlight.
Finally, stating the obvious, if the room isn't cooling, the room is too large for the unit.  The PACL90 cools up to 400sqft.  Bear in mind that the air from these portable air conditioners cannot move around corners very well, so try to set it by a window in the central part of the room.
