There should be a drain plug on the back toward the bottom of the unit, pull the plug and it should drain. Good Luck Tim

Cannot use my portable water source after I disconnect from water source outside the unit


Where is your vent for your tank? Sometimes these will create a siphoning action once started and once full, they drain themselves.

My unit is flashing a red light in the water full indicator. Therefor the air conditioner will not function. Both water tanks are completely empty. It is a portable Danby unit. Model SPAC 8499-3. Any...


You may need to reset the unit, if you did not turn it OFF & unplug it when you drained the tanks
To reset the units electronics, turn the unit OFF and unplug it for 15 minutes. After the time has elapsed, plug the unit in & turn it ON. The electronics should have reset and reverted back to the original factory settings. If so, you can adjust the settings to where you like.

I have a commercial cool 7000BTU portable air conditioner and it seems to have shut itself down and displays a red flashing alarm light. What can I do to get it working again?


Karen, the flashing red light indicates that the water collection tank is full and needs to be emptied.
You can finds the drain plug on the rear of the unit just above floor level.

It can either be drained into a low sided bowl or pan capable of holding 1 quart of water. or you can disconnect the exhaust hose(s) and roll the unit to a floor drain or outside to drain it.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have an Amcor 12000M portable air con unit. How do I top up the water tank?


There is no need to top of the water tank. When the unit is running it collects condensation and fills the tank with water. When the tank is FULL the Full indicator will illuminate and the unit will shut OFF. You will ten need to drain the water from the rear drain hole.

To further assist you, in case you have misplaced your Owners Manual. I have included a link to it that you can download & print for future reference.

Water leaking out of frigidaire portable air conditioner at left back bottom corner? Model FAPO94P172 or FAP094P172??


First, have you drained the tank recently. If not, the warning light or auto shutoff failed and the tank may be overflowing. Worse case scenario is the that the tank is dirty and is not allowing the coils to cool and the dripping water you see is from the cooling coils. Since the tank is not removable, it's very difficult, at best to clean the tank.

If you drain the tank and before reinserting the drain plug, try to get about 1/2 teaspoon of bleach in the drain hole. followed by 2 cups of water. Of course you'll have to use a funnel of sort to do this. Reinstall the drain plug and move the unit around so the water and bleach will slosh around. Then run the unit until the bucket is near full again and drain it thoroughly. Look at the color of water draining out, for an indication that there is dirty water. That will be a good indication, that some cleaning of the tank has taken place.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hi, I just purchased this used. It was working fine for one day, but now it won't turn on. Can u help? Haier CPN12XH9 12000 BTU Portable Air


If the water collection tank is full, it will not turn ON. Since you said the unit worked fine for one day and now it won't turn ON, more than likely, that's the problem. After draining the tank, the unit should reset itself and turn ON like it should.

The drain plug is on the rear of the unit, just above floor level. You can either drain it into a low sided pan or bowl that's capable of holding up yo a quart of water. O r roll the unit to a floor drain or outside to drain it. If you choose to drain it into a pan, turn the unit OFF & unplug it, before draining it.

The water is being removed from the air, you need to empty the water out of the unit as needed, sometimes as often as every two hours, the beeping is a water tank full alarm telling you to empty the tank as per instructions, there is a drain plug on the bottom of the unit you may want to move the unit to a drain until you know the amount of water the tank holds so you know how big of a containor to use

Narrow tube v. plug and cap?


If the unit stops working and some kind of a 'water level full' indicator appears then un bend it and un plug it and then let the water drain into a bucket.  If it continues to indicate that the internal water tank if full you may want to run a hose to a drain in the floor or into a bucket to let the water drain away and the unit keep running without stopping.
