SOURCE: external water tank
Dear ziba1--posted the same problem two days ago and it doesn't appear to be on the site yet. Anyway, picked away at this again today (literally took the machine apart) and found the problem to be a clog in the drainage system. This explains why your external tank will not fill and why there is a leak--the drip tray under the compressor is not draining due to the clog in the drainage system. I fixed this simply by taking a narrow device and gently scraping out the drain hole of the drip tray (which is located just below the compressor...the compressor is located on the same side as your air filter). After successfully cleaning out this drain, I proceeded to flush the water out thoroughly with water. Give it a try--worked for me. I had all but given up and had already set up an appointment to have it serviced. Cheers

SOURCE: unit has leaked from somewhere
Your bucket is not sitting in the proper position. In MY Danby, the unit will not power up if the bucket is not in place.
I am not "the office" and I'm not even an employee @ FixYa.com, BTW. I am a volunteer question answerer here at FixYa.com - presently working in my home ... I just finished supper.
My catch bucket has a place to attach a hose which I have led to a floor drain. Please check the position of your bucket and the condition of the switch that the bucket rests against to allow operation (if yours has such a thing).
I have not had the experience you have had ... My Danby is top notch as far as I am concerned. I believe there is some simple step you are not seeing. I encourage you to take another look.
Of course there is that possibility there is a problem with your machine. Is there a service center near your location where you can have the device inspected for proper operation?
I am sorry to hear of your trouble and hope you find these comments to be helpful.
Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com
