Your air conditioner has no 'power' on it's own. It must get the power from an electrical outlet.

It is possible that the outlet you are plugged into is 'dead,' i.e. not working. One simple way to test this is to plug in another electrical appliance, hair dryer for example to test it and see if it's working.

If you do this and the other electrical device works then you know your AC is getting the 'power' it needs to operate - in which case you have a problem with your AC, and will probably need to call a Service Tech.

If, however, you plug in another device and it - too - does not work then you know the problem is within the outlet, probably a 'breaker' that is off or has tripped off. So, you need to locate the breaker - box.

This "breaker - box" (in most houses) will be located in the garage, utility room, or behind a door somewhere in the house, i.e. kitchen or bedroom.

If your outlet is not working - just go to the breaker box and open the door and look for a breaker (looks like a light switch) that is in the off position or perhaps half way off and half way on. Once you find this breaker - be sure your AC is plugged in and - just flip it (breaker switch) back in the "on" position.

Note: if the breaker switch trips right back off - then you know you have a direct short in your AC and probably will need the help of a Service Tech.

If this is the problem and the breaker stays in the on position and the AC runs and cools - you are probably ok, unless the breaker trips again in a short time span.

If that happens you most likely have a problem in the unit although it's possible the breaker is bad - in any event you are probably in the need of a Service Tech.

good luck!

My 1 year old Danby DBC514BLS tray in back is overflowing on the floor/hardwood. What could be wrong?


Its probably the defrost tray. Most fridges / freezers allow the defrosted water to run into a pan at the back of the unit where it evaporates away. If there is too much water, the tray cant handle it and it overflows.

Danby freezer


If it stopped working after being moved, check all the electrical connections. Also check no pipes were broken in the move. Is there any noise from the compressor?

Danby wine cooler is not getting cold. Fan is running and there is power. Please help. Thanks


Last one of these brought to me had lost it's charge. They are not very well built.

If your within 5 years, take it back to where you bought it. Unit's have a 5 year warranty on the compressor. If the compressor is bad, negotiate trade-in for a newer unit as you can buy a new, better unit for about the same amount of money.
