Question about Soleus LX-140 Portable Air Conditioner
We followed the instructions to empty the tank, but the indicator light is still on and the air conditioner won't turn on. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
I had same problem with my LX-140 and inability to activate compressor due to water emergency tank indicator on. I removed the casing, simple process of unscrewing all screws on periphery and popping casing off. I found the problem to be with my water float switch. This is a small ballast float which rises with water as tank fills and ultimately shuts off compressor if water in tank too high. When you pop off the back of the cabinet, go ahead and set that aside then carefully slide off the front. The circuit panel is still going to be attached so I rested the front panel carefully on top of the unit. so as not to detach the wires. I then found the float switch in lower right hand corner of unit (if you are looking straight at front). I toggled the switch a couple times then made sure it was resting back in slot. Popped the casing back on and it was fixed. I do recommend propping the unit up on a platform and allowing the water to run off through the tube into a larger container to avoid the float all together.
