Need new external water tank quick release for Danby DPAC9030

The quick release nipple on the large water tank which plugs into the main conditioner unit just 'came apart' when I was connecting it. Anyone know where I can purchase a replacement?

You can order it from Danby directly (you can get their contact online from the Danby website). They cost like 4$+shipping, I had to buy one last summer. They ship to Canada and the US.

Remove Water Tank

  • require you empty the unit by hand (usually less expensive units). These have either a removable water tank which must be emptied, or have an internal tank and a drain, where you have to empty the water into your own pan. Sometimes the drain is on the bottom of the unit, making it hard to find a pan that will fit under the unit to drain it.
  • discharge most of the water through the exhaust hose (usually more expensive units). This is called "Auto-evaporation" or "Self-evaporating" feature.
Most units are made so that they can be drained with a gravity hose that flows to a drain inside or outside your house. But the water must drain down. If the drain is higher than the unit, you may need a condensation pump to move the water upward. A few units do include a pump to send the water a short distance through the drain pipe.

do no forget to rate the solution as fixya if it helps you.

My danby air conditioner/dehumidifier model dpac 8399-4 leaks water all over the floor and never fills the holding tanks what can I do to fix this problem?

Probably needs cleaning. I assume it is on a level surface. Water drips from the evaporator coil into a collection tray of some type and then drains into the holding tank, this tray is either broken or the outlet is plugged.
Good Luck,

Which one? The internal water tank just slides out of its chassis (located on the left side, near the front). You might have slight spillage after a good tug or two.
For the external water tank, located the white "spout" that protrudes from the rear. Inside of this "spout", there is silver clip. Just press the clip inward and that should release the connector that is attached to the external water tank.

Led display light display is to low to read

As it has been Discontinued and replaced by DPAC90061.
Your solutions are very limited. If you can find a remote that would be the way to go.
found remote here for 12$ US a bit less than the panel and all functions are on it.
Best to you.

Red flashing light


Had the same problem, thing shutting off after an hour, no water in the tank. I had the external tank attached, was always bone dry. What I didn't know was on the side, there is a slide out tray which acts as the internal tank. The lid to that tank activates a micro-switch which tells the unit that it's full. This tank was dry too, but the switch was getting jostled, casuing it to trip. I've taped down the switch now, and it's fine. I check the tank every few days, just to be safe, but it's never got any water in it. Hope this helps.
