Hi, bugs are flying into our home when we put our air conditioner on fan mode. What can we do to avoid this? Thank you.

I checked to see if there was an external venting function for your unit and there was not so we can eliminate drafted external air as the source. What you will need to do is check the outer chassis to see if the foam is torn off that seals the unit off from external air. You will see a foam strip in the very top of the chassis if you slide the internal unit out. Get some single sided weather stripping and seal off the inner chassis by applying it to the the outer chassis. The from should make contact with the evaporator shroud area only ALL the way around the unit. It will be trickey to get it on properly and then slide the unit back into place but this is what you need to do in the inside of the outer chassis. Now.... on the outside of the outer chassis it must also be sealed. This is just a stretched foam strip all the way areund the outside of the outer chassis. DO NOT use adhesives. It is a stretch and stuff in place fit only. A putty knife works great for installing the outer foam as you stretch it out. If you have any gaps make sure that the gaps are not in the coreners and use another piece of foam to fill any side gaps if the foam pulls apart.

This should resolve the bugs with fan only issue.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Portable Air Conditioning great portable air cooling


Portable air conditioning offers you the convenience of mobility. All you have to do is roll the portable air conditioner to the room in which it's needed. Install an exhaust hose out a window or other opening (everything you need is provided) and turn it on. The installation process for these units is very simple. These portable air conditioning units are built small enough to be very mobile and are supplied with wheels for easy movement. A portable air conditioner will also work very well in apartment situations where you will often find a window unit is unacceptable.

Portable air conditioners are very unique in that they are portable and can be easily moved to different locations in your home or business. They can be a highly effective way to either help out an existing HVAC system in one room or cool a single room entirely. They are also one of the best ways to cool a room or area without having to install a window mounted unit.

These air conditioners use a compressor and Freon to cool just like normal air conditioning. They are very effective in cooling rooms and to keep the humidity low. Like normal air conditioners portable units extract hot air that must be vented. That is why they need to have the exhaust hose to the outside. These units can cool air as well as air conditioning done with window air conditioners. However they do not require installation like conventional window air conditioners this makes them very convenient for seniors or physically challenged people. Most portable air conditioners are supplied with a window kit. This kit contains exhaust hoses that will work in any window: double-hung, casement, awning or slider. Because they vent through an opening like a window they require no permanent mounting like window air conditioning.

Portable air conditioners are a very good cooling option for those who can't use the more conventional air conditioning methods. Remember though that this type of unit is not as efficient as most window units or conventional air. So while they may make your environment cooler, it won’t turn your tent into a room at the local hotel.

So as you can see these air conditioning units have some great advantages over other types of air conditioning. They are a great alternative for unique applications where central air or conventional window units are either unfeasible or too expensive. During special events, portable air conditioning can also be a great way to keep guests or equipment cool and comfortable. Always be aware though that because portable air conditioning will remove moisture from the air, they will also need to be drained occasionally similar to a dehumidifier.

Does your application warrant a permanent air conditioner of some form or should you just use a portable one? There are some interesting things to consider when making that choice. Weigh out all of the different options and make that decision based on what will best suit your needs.

Hi, I am installing a stainless steel sink I have had made into a bench top which I will be filling with ice to keep beers cold. As there is a cupboard underneath I am worried that the ice will cause...


I would take a two-step approach.

1) Get one or two cans of polyurethane foam insulation (e.g. Great stuff). It would be easiest if the sink is not yet installed. If it is, get a bunch of newspapers and keep the area well covered inside your cupboard. This stuff will stick to anything (including stainless steel sink bottoms).

Spray the foam insulation onto the sink surface. It has a wand to spray into small areas, just make lines about 2 inches apart as you spray (more like caulking). You will seet the foam expand. Run another line of foam between the ones you made if you think it is not covering (expanding) well enough. Let it expand and harden for a day.

Part 2)
Here you want to prevent any air from getting under your sink. If you can limit any condensation to the air that is under the sink, you wont get too much water. If you allow air to circulate, then all the air passing by will deposit some dew onto your sink bottom.

Get some foam insulation strips like you want to insulate a window or door. The best option would be Frost King (EDPM) extruded profiles. Thes strips come in 3/16" and compress easily as your cabinet door closes. You might want to put spring hinges on the doors or a spring latch to keep it tightly closed.

Good luck and try to stay clean. You might want to practice on a board outside if you haven't worked with spray foam insulation before - be careful, it drips and runs a bit before it hardens so keep your lines thin as you spray..

Window kit dimentions i have a window 18 inch wide


The portable AC units generally have a customizable, exhaust hose window, termination kit that comes with the unit.. In other words it can be cut to fit. The one that comes with the unit will fit casement windows, as well as sash windows.

To further assist you, I have included a link to the Owner's/Installation Manual for the model you referenced. You may download and print it if you like.

Yes. As long as the seal fills the gap from sill to unit the width will be just fine.

Is it hard to install a heat strip in a model#57915541 serial#54936348 air conditioner


Hi, like most of the RV roof tops, they will have a manual showing the type and wattage of heat strips you're system calls for. It comes as a unit, pre-wired to fit and set in place. You should have no problems installing a heat strip kit, but make sure you get the right one that the unit calls for as they do make several models. Very self explanatory. Also, be sure that you're system calls for a heat strip package?? Good Luck, and if you need more help please contact me. Very easy to set in place and plug in. Sincerely,

Actually it's a DPAC 13009. We need to extend the 2 air pipes 4 to 5 feet each to reach upper windows over patio doors to keep doors locked and secure. Does Danby provide air pipe extensions? Thanks.


No solution possible, given that the air ducts going up over the patio doors are quite an eyesore. This building is entirely fieldstone outside, so either the patio doors or windows above them are the only way to go in or out.

We will return the unit and get instead one that can be placed in the upper window and activated by remote control. Thanks.

I have a Danby DPAC10071 and am trying to install the vertical window installation kit. I don't understand how I'm supposed to put in the sliders without covering the holes that allow the air to come in...


I eventually just gave up and cut off a piece of one of my extensions. Not sure if there's a better method, but that worked just fine for me. Plus, I still have the other, full sized one for when I want to move the AC to the patio door.
