SOURCE: I have a portable air conditioner and the water

I would suggest putting a condensate pump in the reservoir, find the tube that empties the water into the reservoir and direct that into the pump. You can run tubing from the pump to a sink or any other drain in the house that is convenient. Putting the pump inside the reservoir is a safe guard in case the pump fails, the water will fill and turn the unit off instead of flooding the floor. It would actually probably trip your breaker once the water hit the voltage on the pump but always better safe then sorry. Check out these pumps at amazon, you don't need anything fancy.

SOURCE: the air conditionner is mounted on wall and is leaking water

The Unit must be lower at the back end and higher than the drain hose if using one.

Why does my a kenmore portable air conditioner tell me to empty the tank. I can't find any "tank/bucket" to empty.


Should e a drain on the back o f the unit to drain condensate water off. It will not run until yo empty it.

How do you empty tank?


It is actually a pan with a float that when full will stop the unit.
On the back of the unit, bottom, there is a rubber plug. Have a pan ready and I would advise have the unit up on a couple of 2x4s or bricks...I used a short tube and drained it into a baking pan, it is too heavy to get into a bathtub or shower.

Water leaks under portable air con unit


Look for a crack on the water tank or a dried up gasket on the tank. Loose hose clamps can allow a leak as well.

Leaking water


Connect the proper sized tubing, and run it to a desired drain area. Make sure no outside air is entering the conditioned space.

I am empting the tank of water every two days, need help. Thanks


Air conditioners and dehumidifiers are closely related. Any air conditioner operating in a humid environment will extract moisture from the air and with an outside or window unit, this collected condensation has an escape path and these are not equipped with a container to hold the collected water .
A stand-alone portable unit does not have any other way to dispose of the condensate other than the internal container . . .and you.
Your unit is not defective, you just have it operating in a high-humidity area.

How to change or clean the filter and where to download a manual


DeLonghi has the manuals for their portable air conditioners here: http://delonghiusa.com/support/product_manuals/5#table-jump . The direct link to the PAC C120 manual is http://delonghiusa.com/support/sites/default/files/product_manuals/m-PAC+C120.pdf .

Before cleaning, turn off the air conditioner. To clean the filter, pull it straight up from behind the top of the air intake (on the back of the PAC C120). Vacuum off the filter. If it is very dirty, immerse it in warm water and rinse several times. (The water should not above 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees F)) several times. Then allow the filter to air dry. Slide the filter back into the air conditioner and turn the unit back on.

I hope this helps.

I have a Kenmore C120 portable air conditioner. It is leaking water from the back bottom. There is a white drain but this unit is supposed to self evaporate. At least it did last year. Now it is leaking...


Interestingly, your Kenmore Portable AC is manufactured by Delonghi. Occasionally, what you are experiencing happens when the humidity level is high and the air intake filter needs to be cleaned.
That also means that you will need to drain the tank, at least once.

You know where the drain plug is, so you can either carefully take it outside to drain or put a low sided container, capable of holding 1 1/2 quarts of water under the drain plug. If you drain it inside, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit, before attempting to drain it.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

New unit installed when turned on "FT" light displays


Remove the tank if it is removable and see if you can determine how it is sensing the tank level. Maybe it's a float switch that is stuck or maybe it works by the weight of the tank. Either way your problem will be with whatever senses the tank level.

if it is a portable air conditioning unit, the tank will fill up with water as the unit pulls humidity out of the air. you will need to empty it when it gets to the full mark

Comes on and runs then cycles off, and may not come back on. fans run every thing seems to work compressor dose not come back on.


if a portable air conditioner, is the water tank full of water ? if so empty it.
Other option for any a/c unit (not just portable unit) is that it has a gas leak.
