Portable air conditioner only leaks when in dehumidifier mode

Hi, My Danby portable air conditioner works fine in every mode with the exception of dehumidify mode. When in dehumidify mode it doesn't drain into the reservoir like it does in every other mode. Instead, the water pools near the front of the unit. Any help would be appreciated.

The base needs to be dumped regularly. The air conditioner sweats water during operation and the pan collects it. Your manual should give you the procedure on how this is done. In some cases there is a hose attached to the drain pan so that you can direct the drainage to a more conventional drain location.

Also check to see that the nut on the male connection to the external water tank is tight. Mine dripped because the nut was loose.

Water is collected from cooling mode, not just dehumidifier mode. It does not always evaporate into the exhaust stream due to design limitations.


Of course the water should never leak even on the hottest day. Two suggestions:


Try removing the hose and attaching the external tank to see if it has any effect. Otherwise, you'll need to locate the exact source of the leak.

Excessive water draining from portable A/C


It appears that you have changed the location of the unit, I mean have you relocated to an area whwre the humidity is high, usuallly coastal areas have high humidity.If not is there a door that is being constantly left open causing a lot of fresh high humidity air into the room
