Question about Danby DPAC10031 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

External tank Hello, I purchased this product two years ago especially for the climatisation system it was offering, since then, I moved in an other appartment, which is half underground. Now that the summer has begun, I started to use the dehumidifier, which is working perfectly; the only problem is the external tank, which is connected and locked properly, but the water just doesn't gather in there! Do I need to install a kind of pipe or something between the internal and external tanks...?? Please help me!

    I am having the same problem it seems! The internal tank just overfills and then water just leaks at the base of the machine and there is water damage to my floor. The unit is 2 weeks old, so WTF?

How do I even INSTALL the external tank?!?!? I just hook it on, but there seems to be nothing that actually drains into the tank. Am I missing a part?

Eugene, first, let me say, yours is one of the best narratives, of what is happening with your ,that I have read in a long time. You didn't leave me guessing as to what was going on.

I believe one of the problems is that you may be operating the AC Cooling & the Dehumidifier at the same time. If this is the case, the dehumidifier is generating heat, when it's operating and the AC cooling side is working at a lower rate, because the dehumidifier is in operation. Discontinue the use of the dehumidifier on extremely hot days and use only the AC Cooling mode. The AC mode also acts somewhat as a dehumidifier. That's why draining the water tank is required for AC mode too.

I would also be prudent to check the exhaust hoses to make sure they are not clogged or have been bent out of shape. Keeping the air intake filter clean is really important, too.

Aside from the air conditioner, other things can be done to help cool the room. Close all drapes or blinds to block the sun from directly heating the room. This is especially true, if the AC unit is sitting in direct sunlight. If you have a ceiling fan, operate it it as fast as you can stand, in a Clockwise direction. This not only keeps air moving, it also helps the AC unit and creates a windchill, that fools your body into thinking it's cooler than it really is. Personally, I have been doing this for years and have saved a ton of money on electric bills during the summer.

I hope I have been able to help you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Find spare and repair manual for intrepid wood stove


Alex, I don't know how old your Vermont Castings Intrepid wood stove is, but the only available Owner's Manual is for their fairly new model Intrepid II wood stove.

A little quick history. Vermont Castings was an independent company 10 years ago, that was bought up by Majestic (FMC) Fireplace Company of Canada. About 5 years ago, Majestic went belly up and the VC line was purchased by Monesson Hearth Products. There have been some improvements to their wood stoves in the past couple of years, so as to meet the new EPA Requirements. So, this manual may show some things your stove doesn't have.

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

K 900, pinguino


I had the same problem with my Delonghi K900.  I have an extended warrantee for both my Delonghi air conditioners.  It was taken into the shop and discovered that the hose that allows the water to drip into the collecting tank was clogged with dirt and dust. I find it is a good idea to have them cleaned and checked once a year, especially if used often. For under a hundred dollars, I have a warrantee that will last until the year 2010.  Sears offers warrantees for any home appliance, even if it wasn't purchased there. Taking the air conditioner apart yourself can cancel any warrantee on them machine. Hope this helps. Trisha

External water tank


Dear ziba1--posted the same problem two days ago and it doesn't appear to be on the site yet. Anyway, picked away at this again today (literally took the machine apart) and found the problem to be a clog in the drainage system. This explains why your external tank will not fill and why there is a leak--the drip tray under the compressor is not draining due to the clog in the drainage system. I fixed this simply by taking a narrow device and gently scraping out the drain hole of the drip tray (which is located just below the compressor...the compressor is located on the same side as your air filter). After successfully cleaning out this drain, I proceeded to flush the water out thoroughly with water. Give it a try--worked for me. I had all but given up and had already set up an appointment to have it serviced. Cheers
