Why is this not cooling


Is it a portable a/c unit? Is it vented properly- out a window? Does it shut off if the drip pan is full of water?
I have a different brand portable a/c unit and find that while they say it can cool a room, I don't think it will work well on its own- a window unit would be better. I use mine in a bedroom to cool a little more than my central unit.
These units need to exhaust hot air outside the room it's trying to cool. Some will shut off if the internal drip pan fills with condensation to avoid water spilling and damaging floors.
I don't use the "auto" mode on mine, just set the temp and make sure the compressor on in manual.

I have a danby portable air conditioner with no manual. The picture shows two ducts going outside. My question is why does the intake go outside?


On a portable a/c unit the cooling is done by taking heat out of the air inside and dispensing it outside.

That's accomplished by washing air over the heat coil in the unit, then the air goes back outside to let the heat out there.

You'll need inlet air, and outlet air to accomplish that.

Inlet air is cooler as it comes in, then that air absorbs some of the heat inside the space you're cooling and turns around to go back out leaching heat outside.

Most likely scenario.

There may be another need for outside air revolving around positive pressure inside the conditioned space.

Let me know if that doesn't solve your situ.

Do we need to use both hoses?


You could draw the air from inside however the system works much more effeciently with 2 hoses.
The air that is drawn into the unit and heated then exhausted back outside. If you don't use the second hose all the air that is exhausted will have to be drawn in around windows and doors or othe voids in the area. This would draw in warm moist air that would then have to be cooled and dehumidified.

The cool air blowing out has a fishy smell.


Hi!!

That's the smell of foul water, make sure to frecuently empty the drip pan, wash it and desinfect it using a couple of drops of clorox or other desinfectant.

Danby ALSO does not cool 3 days old


Take it back where you bought it. A 12,000 BTU unit should be more than enough for a 192 square foot room, so there is some problem with the unit.

Room temperature has not changed since hooking up new portable a/c


This may sound dumb but ( 1) Do you have the warm air from the unit to the exterior of the space? If the condenser is in the space your putting the heat your trying to remove right back into the space. ( 2 ) There should be an air supply and an air return in the space only. With that there should be a temperature difference of 16 to 20 degrees between the supply and return. ( 3 )A 1 ton unit usually will cool approximately 400 square feet. ( 4 ) It may take a while to pull the space temp down due to pulling the heat and moisture from the ceiling, walls, and floor. This could take 6 hours or more the first time you use the system in a space.

Danby DPAC10061 portable air conditioner problem


you may have a factory defective unit that is not turning off the anti-frost heating coil (I have assumed yours contains this item based on your problem description). I would trade it in for a new unit, again assuming you have a warranty or the store offers a good in-store return policy. If this plan bombs, then open the unit and find the heating coil near the cool side of the radiator fins. then disconnect the power wires to the heater and prevent electrical short to wires with quality electrical tape.
