Question about Sharp Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

This is a stand alone portable 10,000 sharp portable AC

It does not appear that the self evaporating is working. it runs for a couple or hours and then goes off, once the water is emptied it restarts.

I have the same unit in the next room, but for once in the last year have not had to empty it.

What is going wrong and how can I fix it?

I had the same issue of filling up after a couple hours but mine started making some pretty loud noises as well just before shutting itself down and lighting all three lights. The top drain valve would no longer work and the only way I could drain it was through the bottom (gravity) drain valve. I took the unit apart and found that the simple water pump that is used for draining and the evaporating process had lost the thin filter screen on the bottom and the screen became lodged in the impeller of the pump preventing it from spinning. I removed the worn and broken plastic screen, carefully pushed the impeller back up on the shaft until it bottomed out, and cleaned all the built up sediment off the entire pump. After reassembling everything, the ac unit runs like new again and the noise is completely gone. Cost? $0
I imagine you can just order a new pump from sharp and save the time and effort of cleaning the pump.
Hope this helps!

Haier portable AC water collection tank full in one hour.


My unit was working fine for a couple years but now it won't evaporate. It still cools fine but it also collects about 16 ounces of water every hour and then shuts itself off until I drain it. I'm wondering it the evaporative mechanism it broken some how.

Dominic,

My only solution is to take the unit in for warranty service. The cooled air has a musty smell to it, too. Does yours? And did you get this issue resolved?

I have an amana self evaporating portable ac for my 500sf condo. I have had to unhook it and roll it outside 4 times to drain it. Lately water is now spilling out the back vent on to my floor. What's the...


It appears to me that because of the small size of your condo, you are just recirculating the humidity in the apartment. The unit is condensing the moisture in the air and then reheating it in the pan causing it to evaporate back into the air. The unit is working properly but the humidity level in your apartment continues to rise. You really need to add a drain from the pan of your portable air conditioner.

Amcor ALD12000E portable air conditioner shuts down every hour


Is it leaking or shutting off on the overfill?
If it is leaking you have a stopped up drain inside the unit.

The 10,000 BTU portable room a/c unit is not running cold enough


Make sure your vent is closed. check the filter to see if its clean. If you run the a/c you can check your evaporator to see if you have condensation or does it freeze up?
Make sure you have your unit on early in the morning. If you turn it on in the afternoon the humidity might be too much and it will take along time to cool down.
Try those things if that doesnt work then you need a service call.
