Question about Danby DPAC9030 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

I can't seem to get the A/C to work. I'm thinking of getting a hose as a last resort. It seems to alternate blowing cool air, then hot air after a few minutes. There's also a tendency for the a/c to shutdown the power in the house and I have to reset the fuse box everytime it happens. Do you have any suggestions?

The symtoms you describe appear to indicate that the AC might be low on the freon charge. Usually blowing cold and then hot is the first sign that the unit is low on refridgerant and is working hard to keep cooling.

Further, the tripping of the breakers/electric power also indicates that the unit is working hard to cool and as a result is running hot and is causing the power to trip off. If you can get a AC tech to recharge the unit, you should be all set.

Here's a link to a site with the owners manual and a troubleshooting guide for your unit. You can access it for free.

Macbook 7.1 overheats


Take it to a trusted computer dealer and have them replace the thermal paste between your heatsink and your processor. Also, make sure to blow out your fins that blow the hot air out and pull the cool air in. This should resolve the overheating issue.

Heater does not work


Seems like very little volume of water is reaching the heater core in the dashboard. Check the hoses that run from the cooling system into the firewall. One of these hoses might be bent or creased in a position that it impairs the normal flow of hot water into the dashboard.

Driving on interstate and car started running hot. Heater was working and blowing hot air. Had steam coming from under hood. Top Radiator hose was hot but bottom hose was cool. Could it be a blown heater...


it seems as if there is a clog in the radiator, flush out coolant system and see if this helps.usually when top hose is hot and bottom hose is cold there is a clog somewhere in system. check radiator and make sure coolant is circulating. hope this helps carl,

2003 Ford F250, the heater does not blow hot air


check the heater temp. control pot under the hood, inline on one of your heater hoses, it may be sticking causing hot water to only get to your heater core when the engine is at high r.p.m.s

Everstar MPK CR10, blows cold, but won't cycle.


Make sure the exhaust hose isn't longer than the maximum allowed and is not kinked, turned too many times (bends) and is the right diameter as specified in the manual. It sounds like the unit is going off on high head pressure.

If at all possible, change the exhaust hose to a smooth type rather than the corrogated hose that probably came with the unit. The less air restriction in the exhaust the better.

Seal any air leaks at the exhaust or discharge point.

Rattling noises from ac


If you are careful unplug it, tilt it 45 degrees back and use a hose spray sideways to remove the debris from the coils. It worked for me. Be careful not to get any of the electrical parts wet.Low pressure from hose
