THE UNIT BLOWS COOL AIR OUT THE FRONT BUT HOT AIR OUT THE BACK THE MODEL IS aP076E .i DO NOT HAVE A MANUAL BUT IT DOES NOT SEEM TO BE REAL HARD TO RUN THANKS


Yes, that is the way a typical air conditioner works. The portable types need to have the hot discharge air direct outside via flexible hose and an adjustable window bracket. The window closes on the bracket to create a seal, and the hose connects between the air conditioner discharge and the opening in the bracket. This is called "venting". Most portable air conditioners include (or offer as an accessory) a "vent kit" or "window kit".

Some portable air conditioners do not provide a way to vent - fortunately yours appears to have a kit for this purpose. You may wish to check out this page on venting. It has plenty of ideas and suggestions for venting. This site has some very good pictures to document making a vent - and is worth a look, too.

If this was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" - thanks!

My through the wall whirlpool air conditioner has water sprinkling through where the cold air comes into the room is my air conditioner broken??


Hi,
No... either the drain hole is plugged or the unit is tipped forward instead of backward...make sure that the unit outside the window is lower then the inside by just a bit... The drain holes are usually in the back outside corners and often they plug up with dirt or debris...

Cool air coming from the vents in the front but hot air coming from the back. What do I do to stop the hot air so that the room will cool down?


Hi,
The hot air is a product of the cooling.... if you stop that then the unit will not cool!!!
You need to buy an exhaust kit to vent the hot air outside so that it will cool the room.
Otherwise it is just what is called a spot cooler or in other words you are cool if you sit in front of it, but it actually will make the overall room temp. hotter!!

I have a danby portable air conditioner with no manual. The picture shows two ducts going outside. My question is why does the intake go outside?


On a portable a/c unit the cooling is done by taking heat out of the air inside and dispensing it outside.

That's accomplished by washing air over the heat coil in the unit, then the air goes back outside to let the heat out there.

You'll need inlet air, and outlet air to accomplish that.

Inlet air is cooler as it comes in, then that air absorbs some of the heat inside the space you're cooling and turns around to go back out leaching heat outside.

Most likely scenario.

There may be another need for outside air revolving around positive pressure inside the conditioned space.

Let me know if that doesn't solve your situ.

Does it need a hose to release the hot air


Hi,
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.

How do we get rid of the water that collects in


There is no container, it burns it up inside into hot air and sends the moisture out the exhaust tube which you hooked up to the back of the unit and ran either outside or underneath house through flooring. There is one of these units that does come with a bucket in the front bottom drawer that comes out, but if its a PAC ct90 just like mine, there is no water empty it handles all that itself.

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.

Water spillage in Dimplex portable air conditioner


Hi Leanne,Bung stays in and you dont take it out until the red light (4th on right on top of unit) comes on, then you empty it taking bung out and use tube to get the water out. It will probably take some time (days of continuous operation) for the light to come on, depending on your humidity etc. For easy emptying, wheel the unit to a bathroom or outside where if it spills a bit it won't matter.

Ours is working okay although it just stopped blowing cold air and is only blowing room temp air. we have guests tonight and its hot! I came here looking for a solution to my prob and found yours!

chhers, Les.
