The base needs to be dumped regularly. The air conditioner sweats water during operation and the pan collects it. Your manual should give you the procedure on how this is done. In some cases there is a hose attached to the drain pan so that you can direct the drainage to a more conventional drain location.

SOURCE: Remove Water Tank

  • require you empty the unit by hand (usually less expensive units). These have either a removable water tank which must be emptied, or have an internal tank and a drain, where you have to empty the water into your own pan. Sometimes the drain is on the bottom of the unit, making it hard to find a pan that will fit under the unit to drain it.
  • discharge most of the water through the exhaust hose (usually more expensive units). This is called "Auto-evaporation" or "Self-evaporating" feature.
Most units are made so that they can be drained with a gravity hose that flows to a drain inside or outside your house. But the water must drain down. If the drain is higher than the unit, you may need a condensation pump to move the water upward. A few units do include a pump to send the water a short distance through the drain pipe.

do no forget to rate the solution as fixya if it helps you.

You can order it from Danby directly (you can get their contact online from the Danby website). They cost like 4$+shipping, I had to buy one last summer. They ship to Canada and the US.

Also check to see that the nut on the male connection to the external water tank is tight. Mine dripped because the nut was loose.

I need to replace a hose on a Danby portable airconditioner model # DPAC120068

The first place to start is with the manufacturer, Danby 800-496-6049. Or take a section of the hose with you and go to your nearest home center and purchase a similar hose (same diameter) and use all the existing fittings that you have, to remount it with the new hose. There are several types available that will work well for this type of application and probably last longer than the original hose did.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Danby-Simplicity SPAC 1220081 - manual gives no indication on how to activate the ionizer function, ie: get the light to turn on suggesting its working. Any ideas? kms. Oops - typo in the model # correct...

I talked to the Danby rep and he said you activate it by pressing the 'fan' button on the control panel for 3 seconds until the ionizer indicator light activates/deactivates. I haven't tried it yet (I'm at work) but I'll give it a shot when I go home.
