The hose goes into the empty tank or tray inside (if it's the drain hose like a garden hose). When the hot side of the system goes past there it evaporates the condensation dripping into it. If your talking about the big 4 inch hose, that goes out a window to get rid of the heat from the room.

Hose goes into a bucket or out a window, drained, etc. it's the drain hose for the condensation. alternatively you can use the tank to catch the condensation, which must be emptied periodically.

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.

Water alarm is on. How do i drain. I think I need to hook up a hose in the back of the unit to drain but I don't know the procedure. There are three drains that look ike they would accept a hose, one high...


The hose is optional. If you are lucky enough to have a drain nearby, then route the hose downhill from any of the three holes on the back. But it won't pump the water uphill out a window. In that case, you will have to install the ginormous external tank and empty it every day. fun fun

The red light comes on as if the tank is full of water but its not draining to the exterior tank which is properly attached... I have even manually drained the interior tank from the back at the bottom......


Does the LCD display show a "tank" icon? If not, the pump will not be allowed to empty the water into the tank. This is because the sensor is not detecting the external tank. If the tank is not properly secured to the unit, the magnet is too far away from the sensor. If the tank is secured, try putting a strong neodymium magnet there to temporarily trick it.

My air conditioner is leaking from the front of it


Are the three drain plugs tightened?

If you're stumped, try to drain the inside tanks and see what happens: Unscrew the three drain valves at the back, and put a pan to catch any water (only a few cups). Let us know what happens.

I have a 7 year old danby portable air conditioner it seems to work good but my neighbor just purchased a new 12000 mine is 10000 he said he has to empy water frequently We have never had a drop of water...


This model is designed to heat the condensed water and send it out the exhaust duct as vapour. It prevents accumulation on less humid days. It sounds like it's served you well for seven years.

However, I do recommend one step for owners of the DPAC series. At the end of the season, drain the internal tank by opening the two taps at the bottom rear. Put a pan beneath them . The internal tank only holds one cup of water.
