Question about Danby Portable Air Conditioner

Will not cool

I just bought the 12000 BTU portable air conditioner, I have it in my room which is not verry large and it does not seem to be cooling it. I have it set to 61c but it goes up and down between 78 and 75. I have it installed correctly and have it set on cool with the fan at its highest speed. it is blowing cool air but i dont think that I hear the compresser. It has been running for at least 2 days straight.
Any suggestions

I would check the settings, if not take it back and exchange it

we have one and love it, it keeps the whole top floor of our house nice and cool, it works fast too and we have a very large room.

Apparantly this is a common problem with this unit? I bought one yesterday and ran it all day/night and had the same problem. I returned it today and will not try another Danby A/C.

I bought the same unit yesterday and took it back today. Not sure what's wrong, I guess they are junky a/c's.

I have a Maytag window unit and i am trying to find out how many btu is has. right now it is in a small room and i want to know if it will work in a bigger size room. MODEL M6Q1OF2A SERIAL CR 264327...


that is a 10000 btu unit and a good rule of thumb to go by when 'sizing' a unit is 12000 btu for every 600 sq ft of cooling space (if the place is well insulated) or 400 sq ft (if not well insulated).
So, you have a 10000 btu unit which is 5/6th of 12000 btu - so - can reasonably expect that unit to cool approximately 500 sq feet.
In other words the room it's in now could be only - say - 300 sq feet (and well insulated) - in which case the AC unit is cooling it - well.
However, if you try to cool a 800 sq ft room - it will not work as well.
Hope this has helped.

Not cooling room


Assuming the unit is 'cooling' but not cooling it 'well,' I would think the unit is too small.
NOTE: 2000 Btu for every 100 sq ft of cooling space if the room is well insulated. If not - then 2000 btu for every 66 sq ft.
For example - a 12000 btu AC unit should cool 600 sq feet of cooling space if well insulated.
or
400 sq feet if not well insulated.
hope this has helped.

The unit is not cooling the room. It is only comforting when you are in direct line of it.


you need to find out the size of the unit.
Rule of thumb - for every 600 sq ft of cooling area (in a well insulated house) you will need 1 ton of air conditioning. 1 ton = 12000 btu.
So, if your cooling area is 600 sq ft you would need an AC which was rated at 12000 btu, assuming your house is well insulated.
If it is not insulated well - you might need a bigger unit, i.e. 15000 btu.

AC was cooling fine. Now, won't cool room even though cool air comes out. Exhaust hose is extremely hot.


Check filter, if you have a 5000BTU unit (small) and it is extremely hot, then it wont work great for a big room. BTU is the rate of what the AC will put out. 5000 BTU is good for a small single room. 10,000 will cool a bigger room and 18,000 btu is meant to cool a home.

Hi, I am going to purchase a 12000 btu 1.5Hp portable aircondioner unit for my living room of around 42 m^2 (7 metres wide and 6 metres in length). I am wondering if this unit is suitable for the room?...


Hello =D
12000 BTU will cool approximately 450 to 550 square feet. That's around 137 to 167 m/2.

Unless your name is Beelzebub and the room your trying to cool is really really really really south (or in this case down). =D <that's not two horns is it? ";-} That should be more then enough to keep everything cool.

Good luck and I hope this helps.

Danby ALSO does not cool 3 days old


Take it back where you bought it. A 12,000 BTU unit should be more than enough for a 192 square foot room, so there is some problem with the unit.

The unit may not be big enough. From the model number I am thinking you a/c is a 12000 btu. Which is usally enough for a large room. However if you have an open floor plan or a really large room you may need a bigger or second unit.
