I drained the internal tank and reinstalled the external tank but after an hour the red light comes back on. I checked the external tank but it is empty. It doesnt look like there is any water being pumped into the external tank.

All it needs is was the drain plug removing and the water draining out if it doesnt then
May be a vacume hose leak.
Most of the time if there is a problem the light on the stat will flash the fault code on the defrost board. Do you have your owners manual, it will tell you what a steady light means. If your freon has leaked out again already you must have a pretty sizeable leak.

The red light comes on as if the tank is full of water but its not draining to the exterior tank which is properly attached... I have even manually drained the interior tank from the back at the bottom......


Does the LCD display show a "tank" icon? If not, the pump will not be allowed to empty the water into the tank. This is because the sensor is not detecting the external tank. If the tank is not properly secured to the unit, the magnet is too far away from the sensor. If the tank is secured, try putting a strong neodymium magnet there to temporarily trick it.

External tank not filling


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...

Red light is on???


You need to empty the water in the tanks, there are two one is external the other is internal if you do not have the external tank attached do so and with the unit of, then turn the unit on and put it in cool mode and watch for the water to drain if this does not work emty the water from the scre holes with the unit unplugged and drain it outside you will need leverage as it will need a slight tilt to do so. Hope that helps..

Red light on??


that means the internal tank is full and needs to be emptied. Drain useing a bucket or the hose that came with the system. Open up drain caps and just drain it. Top and bottom caps.

Red flashing light


Hello,

Had the same problem, thing shutting off after an hour, no water in the tank. I had the external tank attached, was always bone dry. What I didn't know was on the side, there is a slide out tray which acts as the internal tank. The lid to that tank activates a micro-switch which tells the unit that it's full. This tank was dry too, but the switch was getting jostled, casuing it to trip. I've taped down the switch now, and it's fine. I check the tank every few days, just to be safe, but it's never got any water in it. Hope this helps.

Red light is flashing continuesly


Ok I found a temporary solution. I opened up the unit (yes there are a lot of screws) I checked the float switches and they worked and even unplugging the water level wire connection to the main board did not get rid of the red flashing light. But if you unplugged the connection from the front panel to the main board but leave the infrared remote still plugged in the main lights and control are not on but you can still work the unit by remote. When in this configuration the compressor will come on and the unit will cool. So I think that part of the problem is on the front panel circuit board or maybe somewhere on the main board. But physically the compressor/relay/ switches work. A short term solution until I can get a new board.

Cheers!
