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.

My Sharp CV10NH, turns off and water full about every there a solution to this problem?

If you are operating in a humid environment and are running in Dehumidifier mode, you might be filling your tank very quickly. Run it in Cool mode and you might last longer than 30 mins. Also, if you can isolate the room you are cooling from other parts of the house, that will help.

Sorry, it is working well! Part of an air conditioner's job is to remove excess humidity from the air. This is what is filling up the bucket.

It keeps freezing up if you put it past #5

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. Freeze ups are caused by a couple things.

1. The first thing is a dirty evaporator coil. Air conditioners that run 24 hours a day should be thoroughly cleaned every 90 days.

2. The Blower fan wheel is dirty

3. The fan motor is not running fast enough.

Most of the time these 3 items listed above are the main reasons and Air Conditioner Freezes up.

Thanks for using FixYa,

The amount of condensate it is producing is dependant on how humid the air is it is cooling. The more humid it is the more condensate you have.

How can I determine if the ac is removing the correct amount of moisture from the air?

tech answer is:3 pints of water per hour per 1 ton of cooling.
General rule of thumb is 20-25% of the capacity of the unit is devoted to dehumidifying.
If unit runs constantly and the temp really does not seem to be effected, unit is probably too small. If unit runs and cycles off frequently, i.e. short run times, and humidity is high, unit is too big.

Hope this helps

PAC L90 water tank capacity

when tank is full you will get the letters FE will signal a FULL TANK
(The tank is full)

You have it setup to constantly drain GOOD.
Should you should not plug the drain hoses to get colder air.
Do let it drain . It is more convenient!
If the unit is the proper BTU for the square footage of the area to be cooled it will be cold!
If the tank gets full you will not get cool air?

Please remember to leave a rating before you go!
Thank you

Maytag portable air conditioner runs for 2-3 seconds then stops and shows code "E1" on the display

Water pump constantly running on Carrier gas furnace

Yes I agree with Master_tech Be sure the shipping retainer was removed if its a new unit, if its an old unit clean it and put an algae tablet in it.
