Question about Danby DPAC12031 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Actually it's a DPAC 13009. We need to extend the 2 air pipes 4 to 5 feet each to reach upper windows over patio doors to keep doors locked and secure. Does Danby provide air pipe extensions? Thanks.

Hello, We just bought a stand alone portable a/c unit DPAC 13009 from Costco and realize we need air exhaust and intake pipe extensions of 4 to 5 feet long in order to put the vents in the upper windows over patio doors so as to allow night time security with locked patio doors. Do you sell air pipe extensions? Please call back Michel at 514-684-3992 or Paul at 514-626-0707 or Gilles at 514-685-8329 Thank you.

No solution possible, given that the air ducts going up over the patio doors are quite an eyesore. This building is entirely fieldstone outside, so either the patio doors or windows above them are the only way to go in or out.

We will return the unit and get instead one that can be placed in the upper window and activated by remote control. Thanks.

What is the minimum vertical vent distant from top of water heater to top of cap. Water heater is stand alone outside furnishing water for military force provider showers unit.


Generally 40 feet for ordinary atmospheric-vented household water heater...
Straight run to roof.
Atmospheric means no power vent... just hot air drafting upwards
Google search: gas vent height code

Atmospheric venting code depends on 4 basic factors:
Diameter of vent--- bigger vent, more draft
How many water heaters are connected to same vent
BTU per hour rating of water heater-- the more gas that is burned per hour, the bigger the vent needs to be
How straight the pipe is -- are there any horizontal or lateral runs

http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bosch_Checking_the_draft.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/checking-the-draft2.pdf

Other factors can include
-wind conditions... higher wind across top of vent pipe on roof can reduce draft, and cause downdraft that blows deadly CO into same room as water heater
-vent termination near high walls, trees, high roof peak etc will reduce draft or cause downdraft
-amount of incoming air supply... if water heater is inside a closed room, then there is no air to draft up the pipe, burner will shut down or burn lazy yellow instead of clear blue
-stuff piled up around water heater that obstructs air intake
-dirty air intake screen that reduces air intake
-vent fans inside same room as water heater that pull air down the vent and cause reduction in water heater draft
-generally elbows reduce draft by 10%
-vent cannot terminate near any window door or air intake for another gas appliance
-bird build nest on top of vent pipe after vent termination falls off
-highly acidic gas by-product causes large amount of condensation inside pipe that burns hole in pipe or drips down and damages combustion parts...blower and inline condensate trap and drain might be required
-multiple water heaters installed on same vent line.

My edgestar portable unit smells like miuldew when running. What can I do to clean it


First, start by cleaning the air intake filter. This alone can make a significant difference. Check the exhaust hose(s) for obstructions. Also make sure that the hose(s) are not drooping to much. As this will trap moisture in the hose(s), rather than exhausting out the window.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a DPAC 13009 that was purchased a year ago at COSTCO. It has worked fine until now. It began making weird noises and then kept shutting off. Upon further examination there were pieces of white...


From your description, I would have to agree with you on the pieces being from a broken fan. The good news is, that your model has a 24 month in home service warranty, so the parts and labor to repair are covered. But, the real key is having a Proof of Purchase. Armed with that, you're good to go.
Contact Danby Consumer Support 1-800-263-2629, to file a Warranty Claim.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Air intake via hose & window or intake from room only?


Hello artrey3 The answer is yes, BUT the unit will be exausting room/basement air outside ruining any efficency the unit is rated for.Also you will need makeup/fresh air in the basement. The unit exausting air can put the basement in a vacuum/negitive pressure pulling in air from the chimney!

My ge ac model APE07AHM1 is not blowing cold air. What could be the problem?


This is an old question, but I am having the same problem with APE07AHM1 that I bought second hand. I'd like to recharge it.

The answer by binev_78 seems to be for outdoor AC compressor units but this is a portable stand alone unit, no outdoor unit.

Unit does not cool with the exhaust pipe connection covered


you need to get the exhaust air out if the structure or it will never work, you can use regular duct from a supply house as a temp fix

DPAC 13009 portable air conditioning problem


Remove your remote control on the unit, follow the manual step by step. First, do the emergency on/off button, then operate the air conditioning using the remote control, follow the procedure of your manual.You may notice a clicking sound of your remote control. The yellow/green color of your emegency on/off button will turn to blue. Do not put it back your remote control on the unit because he may sense the temperature of the vent, and your air conditioning will not stay on, it will shut off every five minutes. Your problem is solve.
