Question about Danby DPAC90061 Portable Air Conditioner

Exhaust tube not staying in collar/not sealing correctly

We have a Danby A/C (Model number = DPAC90061), and the flex tube for the exhaust has come unscrewed from the collar that attaches to the window exhaust adapter in the slider kit. I screwed it back into the collar, but it doesn't seem to make a tight seal, and ends up leaking the hot exhaust air back into the room. Also, it doesn't seem to screw in tight, as I can feel the air escaping from under the collar and back into the room. I've tried to rescrew the tube back into the collar repeatedly, and it just falls out on it's own. Unfortunately, this has resulted in no cooling taking place. How do I fix this? Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    This is a good idea, but the flex tube is made of vinyl or plastic, not metal. That would likely cause ripping, which might cause more trouble than it seems to be worth...any other suggestions?

Screw it back in place and put a sheet metal screw in it into the adapter.

    ODuct tape couldn't hold up to the heat, that's why it won't stay in place. the hose gets hot.With the hose warm, will it screw over the outside of the adapter? Going with the flow direction of air, The overlap should be of the downstream hose over the discharge.. did I confuse thee? :). Male should be adapter and female the hose. Tried to avoid that terminology.

Where can in get a set of exhaust/intake hoses for a danby dpac120068 air conditioner

Is there a reason not to just go to the Danby site? Support Danby includes phone support, email and "Find Parts" Even if their source is out you should at least be able to find the correct part number, then Google Danby (part number).
You could also look to see if generic flexible vinyl tubing/hose can be substituted. It's doubtful that Danby created their own hoses.

Hi There,
I have just spoken to one of our technicians and he said that if the there is a red blinking light that usually means that the bucket or drainage system is full. If that is not the issue, it could be a malfunction in the touch pad. If the issue is not the bucket, please contact our customer service department regarding repair. (1-800-26-Danby) We are available Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 4pm EST.

The exhaust on my rear cylinder is making excessive noise, i'm not complaining but on inspection, the manifold is split, it seems to have made out of 2 pieces! why would any1 do that??? shoud i replace...

Muffler putty, no. If you have it off, take it to the local welder. They can tell you if it is fixable. Usually your best bet is to just spend the money and order a new original equipment replacement part (if a good salvage/used part is not available. Be sure to replace the exhaust gasket in the head when you put the pipe back on. EBAY may be a good source of a good used head pipe.

2001 Ford Focus Flex tube exhaust leak

OK, flex tubes are notorious for leaking exhaust over time due to the overflexing of the tube due to engine mounts not being strong enough over the service life of the vehicle.

One solution, is to take the car to a custom exhaust shop and have them fashion a sleeved exhaust that will not break as easily as the original equipment.

For instance, in my area, we have Midas or Meineke Exhaust centers that can fashion a custom exhaust for the vehicle solving the problem for the life of the pipes, anyway.

Good luck on fixing this problem.

The exhaust on my 1999 chrysler 300m is making noise out of a strange looking ''collar''below the engine but before the muffler

Think your talking about the 'flex' pipe. They do go bad and will leak exhaust out, making wierd sounds.

This is apparently a new product, and not having provided me with a model number, I was only able to ascertain that this is a dual hose model? If so, then I would assume that since there is no direct correlation between 1 hose and the other, that it probably doesn't matter, since both hoses are utilized for proper operation.
