Fl means that the water collection tank is full and needs to be emptied. The unit will turn off if it's full.

Air conditioner shuts down constantly, need to

Sorry but you are just going to have to keep emptying it. These types or air conditioners are also use as de-humidifiers and unless you can place it somewhere where you can connect a drain hose it is going to require many trips to dump the holding tank of the condensation.

Air conditioner will run for about 3 hours then stops because its full - it seems to fill constantly fast??

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. This is normal depending on the amount of humididty in the air the faster it will fill. What you could do is run an external drain line to drain the water while its filling so you don't have to keep dumping the fill pan.
