Question about Danby Portable Air Conditioner

Getting the room down to temp....

My danby dpac120068 will run for about 5 minutes, drop the temp of the room from the 31 C to 29 C, but then the compressor stops, and just the fan runs, the temp goes back up to 31 C. After this happens the fan blows around some air for 20 minutes or so. Then the compressor kicks back in and the cycle repeats itself. Any suggestions on how to keep the compressor running until the room is down to a livable 20-22 degrees?

    my lg split ac stops working after 30 minutes. I start the ac and set the desire temp of room to say 21. It works fine for around 30 minutes. Then suddenly the actual room temp indicator starts dropping till 11 and then display "LO" and compressor and inside unit fan stops.But in reality the room temp is not even 20 at that time. then after 30 minutes or so the room temp display starts increasing and compressor starts. it keeps on repeating.

Danby Consumer help line: 800-263-2629 This is the best I can do for this product line having no information. From my knowledge and experience working with refrigeration and air conditioning there are a few things you should check. Check the voltage being supplied to the unit to insure it is with-in 10% of the name plate specifications. Check the air intake and exhaust hoses for good air flow and that the exhaust is not being recirculated into the intake. I suspect that your problem may be due to the compressor possibly overheating and tripping the internal overload protector. These take time to reset.

When I turn on ac, temp in room comes down, temp on machine reads 95F could problem be exhaust hose has some tears?


The temp sensor is located on the upper rear just behind the air filter. Slide the filter out and give it a cleaning. Look for a small wire visible. Inspect the temp sensor; it gets dusty.

If the hose was leaking you would feel the heat in the room.

Danby dpac120068 blue light flashing with error code E04 and the compressor keeps turning off randomly. What is causing this? What does E04 mean?


Hi,

E04 refers to Overheating. There might be plenty of reasons. You might have seen, if you shut down the ac for few minutes and again start it, It would work for few minutes and the same E04 display is there.

This is tech's job. I am sorry, i am not discouraging you but it requires certain testing that actually what makes ac overheated.

This is dangerous. So, better to call a tech and get it checked!!

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Danby dpac120068 Air Condtioner, where does the hose go? and do you fill the tank in the back with water?


hose goes into a bucket or out a window, drained, etc. it's the drain hose for the condensation. alternatively you can use the tank to catch the condensation, which must be emptied periodically.

Danby Portable Air Conditioner DPAC120068 - room temperature


Maybe, the compressor isn't starting? I'd take it back to where you purchased it.

Room temperature has not changed since hooking up new portable a/c


This may sound dumb but ( 1) Do you have the warm air from the unit to the exterior of the space? If the condenser is in the space your putting the heat your trying to remove right back into the space. ( 2 ) There should be an air supply and an air return in the space only. With that there should be a temperature difference of 16 to 20 degrees between the supply and return. ( 3 )A 1 ton unit usually will cool approximately 400 square feet. ( 4 ) It may take a while to pull the space temp down due to pulling the heat and moisture from the ceiling, walls, and floor. This could take 6 hours or more the first time you use the system in a space.

Cuts in and out


I suspect a bad compressor run capacitor. Take the unit to a service facility & have the capacitor & overload protector replaced. The overload will be weakened by the repeated cycling.
