Question about Danby DPAC8020 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

I have a DPAC 10030 which is pumping out cold air as expected, but there is an accumlation of water under the unit and no water in the internal or external tanks. I can hear water spashing around in the tray when I shake the unit, but that water does not seem to flow to any water resevoirs as expected. Is something blocking the flow?

Yes, I would check the flow of water to the reservoirs and clean the machine of any blockages in the water tubing or routes.

I searched for dpac8020 and dpac 10030 but did not find it on the U.S.A. Danby site. Is this unit located in the U.S. or abroad?

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.
thanks.

Danby dpac 10071 air conditioner is not cooling. a red light is on next to an icon with a full cup. Does anyone know how to make it cool?


That indicates that the water collection bucket is full and needs to be drained. Once the unit is turned OFF, unplugged and drained, the unit will start up and start cooling again. The drain hole is on the rear of the unit, just above floor level. You can either drain it in a shallow sided pan capable of holding 1 quart of water. Or roll it to a floor drain or outside to drain it.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a 7 year old danby portable air conditioner it seems to work good but my neighbor just purchased a new 12000 mine is 10000 he said he has to empy water frequently We have never had a drop of water...


This model is designed to heat the condensed water and send it out the exhaust duct as vapour. It prevents accumulation on less humid days. It sounds like it's served you well for seven years.

However, I do recommend one step for owners of the DPAC series. At the end of the season, drain the internal tank by opening the two taps at the bottom rear. Put a pan beneath them . The internal tank only holds one cup of water.

Danby DPAC 8099 Moisture Removal problem


If the dew point of the air in your place of operation is low you will not get moisture out of the air. Generally when the unit is first used it lowers the indoor humidity and you get a lot of moisture. Once things settle out the amount of moisture will decrease.
