Question about Danby DPAC8020 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Back cover for the air conditioner.

When the air conditioner is on, the hot air comes from the back. I need a back cover to keep the hot air from blowing out.
I purchased it from Home Depot last night. It was a floor model and the only thing I received with it was the remote. The back cover was not with it. Can I receive one. And I also need an information booklet if you don't mind.
Right now that's my only problem.
Thank you and have a blessed day.

You need to get a flexible tube accessory from the shop, to attach to the back of the unit so that the hot air can be directed outside

Welcome to FixYa
Not enough cooling complaints are due to air flow issues, and not lack of “Freon.RV air conditioner- come from the factory- are hermetically sealed.The first basic area is the air filter. In summer, using the RV and air conditioner around the clock, the filter should be checked weekly and cleaned as needed. RV air conditioners use either a foam type filter or a fine mesh, both of which can be rinsed in water and reused.keep the filter(s) clean.Few years latter even the best filter will let enough dirt past to coat the evaporator coils, though, so they need to be cleaned. If the coils are not too dirty, and if the installation leaves enough room to access the coils.Once the cover is off, you can see the evaporator coil -Clean Coils too...

Does it need a hose to release the hot air

Yes, you need to have a hose on the outlet where the hot air comes out and run that out through and window or something to the outside.
If you do not do that it will not cool because you are just running the hot air back into your space that you are trying to cool.

Odor when air conditioner turned on

Hi, If its a smell other then electrical burning, I would say it is coming from the evaporator coil inside. Take out the filter and clean it if it is the washable type and try and clean the coil. They make coil cleaner you may be able to get at your RV dealer to do this. This is the only thing I can think of that would have any odor. Unless there is something outside it is drawing in. The system is sealed and would not emit any odors other then a hot motor. You can check up top by removing cover to check the motors and to see if any critters have crawled inside. Let me no, keep me posed on what you find and if you need more help.
PS Check the indoor blower motor also, it may be getting hot and ready to fail.

AC will run fine for a while if it is very hot out, but compressor quits and will not restart. Wait several hours, and it works ok. When it is cool out(70's) compressor will not start at all. Help!

I suspect faulty thermostat. Take a blow dryer,( not too close as to melt cover ) and aim it at thermostat when ac won't come on, and keep good heat on it for a couple of minutes just to see if that trips it on. If that doesn't work, drop filter cover off ceiling assy and look for thermostat probe which should be visible in area behind filter cover, and apply heat to that , and see if it comes back on. Keep me posted.

Hot air coming out of back

portable air conditioners mainly have two hoses one hose is exhaust thats the one that is blowing hot air. the one pulling is return.. the hot air blowing out should be exhausted to the outside. the blowing air needs a hose and to be laid out a window the back should have model and serial maybe product number. the two holes are either 4 inch or three inch and most portable units other than hand me downs come with a window frame that allows the hot exchanged air to go outside and cooler air to be used for heat exchange.

My Haier 5,200-BTU Window Air Conditioner keeps freezing up. how do I remedied this?

You need to clean the unit outside(take it out of the window) with a water hose because it is dirty inside( you have to remove screws on cover and take cover off), be sure to cover the electronic control board with plastic so you don't get it wet.Clean fins on front and back with water hose and inside .
