Question about Danby Portable Air Conditioner

Open Question

Stopped blowing cold air

We got the danby dpac120068 a/c last week and was working perfectly fine for three days. We turned it off after three days of non stop working and the next time that we turned it on, it was blowing hot air. We did not touch any buttons. We tried restarting it, unplugging etc. Nothing seems to work. It is really hot now and we would need it to work asap. The manual is useless, it has nothing in it.
I would loooooove it if someone could help. Thanks!

SOURCE: Danby DPAC10061 portable air conditioner problem

you may have a factory defective unit that is not turning off the anti-frost heating coil (I have assumed yours contains this item based on your problem description). I would trade it in for a new unit, again assuming you have a warranty or the store offers a good in-store return policy. If this plan bombs, then open the unit and find the heating coil near the cool side of the radiator fins. then disconnect the power wires to the heater and prevent electrical short to wires with quality electrical tape.

SOURCE: Danby dpac120068 Air Condtioner, where does the

The hose goes into the empty tank or tray inside (if it's the drain hose like a garden hose). When the hot side of the system goes past there it evaporates the condensation dripping into it. If your talking about the big 4 inch hose, that goes out a window to get rid of the heat from the room.

I recently encountered the same issue. First off, with the external tank installed is there an icon on the display panel indicating the tank is installed?

No? Then the two sensors are not picking up the magnets in the the "arms" on the back of the tank. It's a poor design for sure, on my unit the tank does not sit flush enough to the back of the AC, if I held the tank firmly to the back the icon would come on. I just used a bit of cardboard at the bottom of the support tray to press the tank firmly to the back of the AC.

Theory is as the external tank fills up, water will run into the "arms" and raise the magnets tripping the switch which tells the unit it needs emptying. But the magnets in the arms are not strong enough if they are not close enough to the sensors. So my cardboard solution lasted only one tank.

I ended up getting some flat neodymium magnets (that I scavenged out of a hard drive), and taped to the sensor that had the gap. I wouldn't recommend doing this to both sensors since it would eventually overfill, only one sensor needs to "trip" for the compressor to turn off.

If you answered yes to the first question (the bucket icon is there), then it's most likely the pump not working on the internal reservoir, or something related to that. Can't help you there...

Hi,

E04 refers to Overheating. There might be plenty of reasons. You might have seen, if you shut down the ac for few minutes and again start it, It would work for few minutes and the same E04 display is there.

This is tech's job. I am sorry, i am not discouraging you but it requires certain testing that actually what makes ac overheated.

This is dangerous. So, better to call a tech and get it checked!!

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Where can in get a set of exhaust/intake hoses for a danby dpac120068 air conditioner


Is there a reason not to just go to the Danby site? Support Danby includes phone support, email and "Find Parts" Even if their source is out you should at least be able to find the correct part number, then Google Danby (part number).
You could also look to see if generic flexible vinyl tubing/hose can be substituted. It's doubtful that Danby created their own hoses.

My air conditioner is leaking from the front of it


Are the three drain plugs tightened?

If you're stumped, try to drain the inside tanks and see what happens: Unscrew the three drain valves at the back, and put a pan to catch any water (only a few cups). Let us know what happens.

Danby Portable Air Conditioner DPAC120068 - room temperature


Maybe, the compressor isn't starting? I'd take it back to where you purchased it.

Room temperature has not changed since hooking up new portable a/c


This may sound dumb but ( 1) Do you have the warm air from the unit to the exterior of the space? If the condenser is in the space your putting the heat your trying to remove right back into the space. ( 2 ) There should be an air supply and an air return in the space only. With that there should be a temperature difference of 16 to 20 degrees between the supply and return. ( 3 )A 1 ton unit usually will cool approximately 400 square feet. ( 4 ) It may take a while to pull the space temp down due to pulling the heat and moisture from the ceiling, walls, and floor. This could take 6 hours or more the first time you use the system in a space.
