Most of the time this happens when the defrost drain is blocked with ice or something is blocking the water flow to the drain pan.
make sure that the drain is free and clear of all obstructions

Ice build up in the bottom of the freezer compartment to the point that it will flow under the gasket like a glacier and melt. There is not an icemaker hooked up. No free water is piped to the unit and...

You have a common problem of a clogged drain, in the back bottom of the freezer, behind the shelf and drawers, you will find a drain pan that has frozen completely over with a ice sheet. This has caused defrost water to run forward and collect under your racks in the freezer. I would advice you to turn off unit, and remove all the ice collected in the freezer, clear the pan with warm water, then restart your unit back up.
Once the pan and drain tube is clear, your unit should be fine.
I hope this helps

Just given an older model delonghi portable air, when u open the front there is a container like thing, I don't have any instructions do I fill it up with water? or does that collect the compensation...

No need to fill that with water, it will collect the condensation on it's on. You will be required to drain it periodically, but the unit should let you know when that's needed.

If you can come up with a Model Number of it, I may be able to find an Owner's Manual.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Having a problem with my honeywell dehumitifier leaking all over my floor

Four things can cause this problem:Before attempting to correct any of them, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF & unplug the unit.

1. The water bucket is not properly installed into it's holder.
2. There is a crack or hole in the water collection bucket.
3. The float valve in the bucket is stuck in the UP position. If your bucket is so equipped.
4. The drain hole and/or tubing to the bucket is clogged.

The first 3 are easy to solve. The third requires a little more work.

Remove the water collection bucket and look up inside the bucket holder cavity. You will see either a drain hole or small tubing that drains the water into the bucket. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reinstall the bucket, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor it for any leakage.

NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers.

Hope this helped you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

How do I change the air filter

To remove the filter:
1. Turn the unit OFF & Unplug it from the wall receptacle.
2. Remove the water collection bucket and set aside.
3. Just inside the water collection bucket holder at the top, you should see the a plastic frame
behind the front louvers of the unit. It may have a plastic pull tab. That's the filter.
4. Pull it straight down and then remove it from the unit.
5. Wash it in warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly and dry thoroughly before
reinstalling it. The filter should be cleaned regularly. NEVER operate the unit without the filter in
place. As this can cause damage to the unit.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

My dehumidifier kicks on for about 20 seconds and then kicks right back off!

What sometimes causes that, is that the water collection bucket is not sitting in the unit properly/tightly. When the unit turns ON, the vibration causes the bucket to move and lose contact with bucket safety removal switch. Try removing the bucket and reinstalling so that the top and bttom of the bucket fit squarely into the holder and the bottom doesn't tilt downward.

Also, check the humidity extraction level. It may be set to high. Lower it to 32-35%.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Not pulling water out of the air

The humidity level you have the unit set on may be to high. Keep in mind, a higher number is not what the dehumidifier will remove. It's what it will maintain. Lowering the percentage to say 45% or minimum if you don't have a LED readout, should cause the unit to turn ON and collect water in the bucket. Also, be sure that the air intake filter is clean and not clogged.

If you want to do an in home test, put the humidifier in the bathroom, turn on a hot shower, set the unit to it's lowest setting and as you walk out, close the door. DO NOT use the exhaust fan in the bathroom. After about 15 - 20 minutes return to the bathroom, turn the shower OFF and check the unit's water collection bucket. If you see any water in it, it's working as it should.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Unit runs all the time and water collects at interior bottom floor.

Is the unit cooling properly? Its a broken or misaligned water hose that runs from freezer to water reservoir for evaporation from compressor heat. Or there is too much humidity causing lots of water to collect inside and your unit is running all time, it can be a case of door not closing properly.

- Please check the door if its closing properly without any gap.
- Any broken pipe inside
- Chiller tray flooded or not in its position.

Sunbeam air conditioner

It is normal for water to collect in the lower base of an air conditioner. See the section entitled: "There is water sloshing around inside." If water leaks out the front it is usually because the unit is tilted forward in the window frame. All air conditioners should be installed so they tilt slightly back to allow for proper removal of the condensation collected.

There is water sloshing around inside All window air conditioners will remove moisture from the air if there is any. Most window air conditioners collect this moisture in the bottom pan of the air conditioner and attempt to evaporate the moisture. The evaporation process works as follows: First, the water drips down off of the cold evaporator coils on the front of the unit. Then the water collects in the bottom of the air conditioner base, the "pan." If the air conditioner is installed properly it will be tilted slightly back.

The water then collects near the back of the unit. On some units, the fan blade used to cool the rear condensing coils will have a rim on the outside of the fins of the blade. This rim, or "slinger," will come close to touching the inside of the air conditioner pan when the fan is spinning. As the water collects in the pan and reaches the depth necessary for the fan ring to touch it, the ring will lift some of the water up and the fan will blow it at the condensing coils. Because the coils are warm, they will evaporate the moisture to the outside.

While this is happening it is normal to hear water splashing and sloshing around. As long as there is no water leaking inside the room that is being cooled there is no cause for concern.

Never drill into the bottom of and air conditioning unit to "let the water out."

if this helps please give me a fix ya
