APE08AK GE Portable Room Air Conditioner isn't draining

My stand alone unit comes with a built in water bucket that filled just fine last summer. Just hooked it back up and now it doesn't seem to be collecting any water. The bucket is bone dry, though the vent on the side is wet. When the water bucket is remived, I can see a tube but it's just laying there, not connected to anything. Can't find my manual anywhere! Help please!

I had the same problem and unscrewed and removed the back cover (AFTER I UNPLUGED THE UNIT) and noticed there is a small black tube that the drain tube connects to. Mine was broken off track and I had to physically remove the small black tube, put it back in it's place and super glued new tabs along the side so it would tilk back and drain the water in the bucket vs. the floor via the unit.
Hope this helps.

Why does the power light on my dehumidifier flash quickly?

without the model number I cant be 100% sure , but due to your description of the last thing u did , Id say the light is flashing indicating that the water catch bucket is not installed correctly back as it was before , most units have a safety that wont allow a unit to operate unless the water catch bucket is installed and M/T as this would allow it to dump water to the floor if it were not

My stand alone kitchen aid icemaker is filling up with water. It is making ice but it keeps filling up with water as well. I had a plumber come out last week because the ice maker was leaking. He fixed...

The drains on items like this get a sludgy residue built up in the drains. Make sure its clear. Empty the bin and you should see the drain port run a small amount of hot water in it. Not a lot as it could leak from the drain tray if it has one. If the drain is clear then it could be a nice maker issue where it's dumping too much water in the tray to harvest. Excess would spill over.

My model is Frig. Dehumidifier, 70 pint. model # LAD704DUL. I hooked up the hose for continuous operation, but the bucket fills up too, even though water is definitely coming out of the hose. It...

Check the float valve in the top of the bucket. It may be stuck in the UP position. If that the case, jiggle the float valve arm to get it to return to the DOWN position. That should solve the problem.

Water leaks out of the bottom of the humidifier and the bucket does not fill up. The water just leaks out.

Based upon my experience with the same problem on my Kenmore 54701 last summer: The condensate water collects in a plastic pan below the coils. This pan has a single drain hole where the water flows down into the bucket. When I suddenly found water puddling on the floor instead of in the bucket, I opened up the unit, and I found that the collection pan's drain hole had become blocked by "bioslime". I cleaned out the goo from the drain hole, and the problem was solved.

Water full light is on how do i drain it?

if you are standing in front of the machine, there should be a removable panel on the right side. the water bucket is behind this (and sometimes attached to it) just slide it out and pour it in the sink, the air will come back on as soon as you put the bucket back.
