Question about DeLonghi CF210 Portable Air Conditioner

No water We have not used the air conditioner for a couple of years.  It is not producing any water.  It has been running for 12 hours, and as I recall, it is suppose to fill up with water after several hours.

If the air conditioner is putting out cold air, don't worry about it making water. You may not have enough moisture in the air to produce more water than it requires.

In some types of air conditioners, the water taken from the air is used to assist in cooling the condenser unit. The excess is run off.

AFTRON Portable Air-Conditioner AFPAC1200H using lots of water but not dripping or leaking - where is it going?

Your question is a little confusing. You could mean takes on water in a tank inside the machine, a bucket you empty when it fills. Sounds like it is dehumidfing because that is what they do, take water out of the air, and just blow room temperature air out, not cold. Many portables have that feature.
If that sounds like it, find the Cool button, or mode button to switch to the cool function.

Works for an hour then blows warm. shut it off for two or three hours and it works for another hour or two. unit is two years old 18,000 btu unit

Clean the outdoor coil, slide it out of the case and use a garden hose to it, keeping water out of the rest of the unit, sounds like the coil is dirty, clean it good until the water runs clean every inch of the coils and you should be running again.

The amount of condensate it is producing is dependant on how humid the air is it is cooling. The more humid it is the more condensate you have.

Leaks and must be drained every half hour

A user said its doing what its suppose to do ,remove moisture, and you do have to empty the bucket atleast 5-times a day or night, and the automatic shutoff shutsoff when you need it most, so he wnt to a window unit and have' not looked back since!
