Question about Windchaser PACR10 Portable Air Conditioner

Narrow tube v. plug and cap?

I assume the narrow tube gets connected to the plug in the back to drain water? I don't have the manual, the unit arrived with the plug and cap on.

    I have the a simular question. Someone gave me the windchaser model SA 12059 and it has a tube and plug on the back that is bent up and not down for drainage. My question is whether it needs to drain or does the water evaporate on its own and I can leave it bent up and plugged.

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.

How do i drain my airconditioning unit from excess water?

There is either a plug at the rear bottom portion of the unit or a hose which very possibly could be clogged.Many have a screw in type cap. You unscrew the cap and will find a black rubber plug. Pull that baby out and it will drain.

My Danby DPAC8099 leaks water. Neither the internal tank nor the optional external tank collect any water. The water runs out on the floor instead. I live where there is very high humidity. This unit...

There should be a water drain from the condenser to the tank, find it and look for something plugging the drain. After three years dirt may have built up blocking the path of the flow of the water.

After one year of usage my portable A/C drains on the floor approximately 3pint / hr. Unit was raised so that the water can drain into a container without weting the carpet . This situation needs to be...

This is what the manual says:

When the internal water container is full, the back light on the LCD display flashes. The unit will shut off automatically, beep 15 times, and must be drained before it will restart.

To Drain the Unit: switch off the unit and remove the plug from the wall socket.

• DO NOT MOVE THE UNIT. Doing this can result in water

leakage, damaging your floor or carpet.

• Place the drain pan on the floor under the drain cap.

• Remove the drain cap and the rubber stopper from the

drain, and let the water run out. Partially fill the drain pan,

replace the rubber stopper, and empty the drain pan.

This procedure must be repeated until the unit is empty.

• Replace the rubber stopper and drain cap.

Put plug into the wall socket, and switch the unit on.

The warning signal should be off.

For Continuous Drainage: • Switch off the unit and remove the plug from the electrical outlet.

• Remove the Drain Cap and Rubber Stopper. Drain if necessary.

• Connect a Drain Tube (not included) (20mm / 3/4" inner dimension) on to the water outlet.

• Place the other end in a drain. Make sure the tube is free from twists and bends.

The tube must decline over its entire length.

I have a split system SAP-K181AHA, SAP-K241AHA that is leaking water from unit inside house.

Air conditioners wring moisture from the surrounding air that collects in a pan under the cooling coil in the inside unit.

Chances are that the condensate drain is plugged or the drain pan is plugged. Look for a hose that exits the inside unit and runs to a drain. You can follow it back to the drain pan of the A/C unit. If there is water sitting in the pan, then either the hose or pan or both are plugged.

Turn the unit off, get a small bucket and remove the drain tube. Catch the water in the bucket. Blow through the drain line until it's clear. If the thought of doing this is too repulsive, then use an air compressor or even a manual tire pump. Now check the drain pan in the unit for debris and remove as much as possible from the pan and the drain fitting.

Both the pan and drain line should be checked at the beginning of each cooling season.

Reinstall the drain tube and see how it works!

Water light on where do you drain the water out of con.

Most Portables have a small drain tube at the back lower portion of the unit, sometimes there tucked away, so just inspect the area towards the bottom and back of the unit and look for a little tube, sometimes there is a cap on the end that you simply pull off and drain the excess water out of the unit.

Good Luck!

Licking water on my Royal Sovereign 1000 es

There is a little hole about one inch above the the drain tube and out of it should come a rubber strap connected to a plug for the drain tube. On the far left of the control panel is a diagram of a bucket under a water drop, just below is an led that comes on when the water tank is full and needs to be emptied. I just roll mine out on the porch and pull the plug. Also, when the tank is full the unit should shut off.

What is the P1 error code on an Everstar portable A/C unit?

U need to empty the internal bucket, its full of water.

I have this air conditioner. What I did was get a long plastic tube from home depot and connect it to the middle back drain. I then put the plastic tube outside my window, or if u have a drain somewhere put it in there or put the end into a big bucket. Let gravity do its job. I did not connect the tube to the internal bucket b/c I would have to empty it too often. The air conditioner is on top of a table so that water will flow down the tube and out the window.

APE08AK GE Portable Room Air Conditioner isn't draining

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.
