Were do i get the manuel for model number ph3 12r03 is the model number were or how do I drain the water and can you send me a manual


Here is the link to the manual:

http://s3.amazonaws.com/szmanuals/b0348062b23e23cd40550b61e1dc5f43


Here are those particular instructions:


Compressor Indicator


The " " icon will light up on the control panel display when the compressor turns on. The " " icon will turn off when the compressor shuts off.

Emergency Condensate Holding Tank


When the room temperature is low and the indoor humidity is high, the air conditioner may not be able to evaporate some of the moisture fast enough. When this happens, the water will accumulate in an emergency condensate tank inside the unit. Once the emergency condensate tank is full, the unit will automatically shut off and the " " will appear on the control panel display. To empty the condensate tank, unscrew the screw plug at the bottom back of the unit. You will need a small pan, approximately 1" high to catch the water coming out of the condensate tank. Once the condensate tank is drained, the unit will begin working within a few minutes. The emergency condensate tank holds approximate
ly 1.5 Liters of water.

Another option is to purchase a small hose from a hardware store that can fit around the 5/8" drain plug on the back of the unit and drain the unit into a gravity drain or larger pan for continuous drainage.

To resume operation quickly, empty the water container according to the following steps:

1. Turn the unit off. Do not move the unit when the water container is full.

2. Place the drain pan accessory under the drainage port at the back of the unit.

3. Remove the screw plug from the drain hole. The condensate water will drain out automatically. When the drain pan is full, screw the screw plug back onto the drainage hole to stop the water flow. Empty the drain pan. Repeat until all the water is emptied.

Once the water container has been emptied, screw the plug back onto the drain hole. Do not allow the
water to drip continuously into the drain pan, as it might easily overflow.

Once the 'condensate tank' is drained the unit will NOT reset....The tank full light stays in and the Unit continues to run the fan, but will not heat ...for HOURS........Help.....I realy did


When our unit was moved with a full condensate pan, the switch lever became lodged in the "full" position and the unit wouldn't heat. This is how I fixed it.

1. Unpug the unit.
2. Remove 8 screws from the housing.
3. Remove the rear housing, swinging the bottom away from the chassis.
4. Remove the front housing similarly, taking care to release the tabs from the vertical chassis rail, and avoid stressing the wire leads to the control panel.
5. The condernsate float and switch are at the right front at the base of the chassis. Assure that the float is free from obstruction and debris in the condensate pan. Assure that the switdh lever is free to travel to the limits.
6. Re-assemble the unit it reverse order.

After years of perfect operation the water reservoir tank needs to be emptied every few hours. Is is almost a gallon of water each time. The normal time was always every other day ...at most once a...


12k BTUs will condense a gallon an hour easily, sounds like the problem is with a probable self-evaporating portion of the condenser. If so either the inner workings of that unit are dirty/malfunctioning or the exhaust duct is not getting proper airflow. If you're mechanically inclined I'd recommend pulling the unit apart and cleaning the condenser parts. If not perhaps try attaching a permanent drain hose to the drain plug. Definitely check the exhaust duct either way.

Calciom build up from misting condser. Got any ideas withouy damage done to condenser???? GREG


Gregg, make a solution of 50% White Distilled Vinegar & 50% Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank). Empty any remaining water from the tank, before filling it with the 50/50 solution.
Then, plug the unit in and turn it ON and allow it to run for about 3 minutes. Turn the unit OFF and allow it to sit overnight. The following morning empty the tank and refill it with Bottled Distilled Water. Turn the unit ON and after several minutes of operation, place you hand in front of the misting nozzle to see if you feel any mist. If you do, allow the unit to run until the tank is have empty. Doing this will flush the remainder of the solution from the unit. Empty the remaining Bottled Distilled Water from the tank. I would highly recommend using Bottled Distilled Water in the future, rather than Tap Water. As it's mineral and calcium free.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

The water is being removed from the air, you need to empty the water out of the unit as needed, sometimes as often as every two hours, the beeping is a water tank full alarm telling you to empty the tank as per instructions, there is a drain plug on the bottom of the unit you may want to move the unit to a drain until you know the amount of water the tank holds so you know how big of a containor to use

I have a Duracaraft Humidifier DWM-250 series. It was working perfectly fine for 2 days. Then it stopped producing mist. I have cleaned the heating element, not used it for almost 24 hours just in case...


It may have a scale and mineral build up, prior to using bottled water.

To clean it, empty the tank of any water that's already in it and fill it with a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Allow the solution to sit in the tank for 30 minutes, before turning the humidifier ON. Once the unit is ON allow it to run for at least 30 minutes, then check to see it if it's misting, by holding your hand in front of the nozzle. If it is, allow it to run until the tank is 3/4's empty. Turn the unit OFF, unplug it and pour out the remaining solution. Then fill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water and run the unit for one hour. This will allow enough time, for the Distilled Water to flush the system. After that, fill it again with Bottled Distilled Water and use the humidifier as you normally do.

If it didn't start misting when you turned it ON. Allow the solution to set for 3 hours and then try it again.

Hopefully, this will solve your problem. It does 95% of the time. Please let me know if it worked for you. Thanks.

LX-140 SOLEUS A/C DUMPED WATER ALL OVER MY WOODEN FLOOR........THE TANK ALWAYS GETS EMPTIED AND CONVINCED THAT THE WATER IS COMING FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE UNIT, I TURNED IT OVER AND WATER CAME POURING OUT...


I would recommend that you manually fill the tank so you can watch it and see when it is completly full. If tank full sensor does not work then I would replace it. I think it is probably bad as it should not only tell you the tank is full it should also shut it off. Thank you.

Water tank is suddenly filling up


look closely how the water flows from the evaporator to the tank. does it goes first to the condenser ?..or is there a heating pipe that is touching the tank in order to heat the water for it to evaporate?

here's the set up, your ac would cool and absorb moisture in the air and becomes water in the evaporator. these water is sometimes used to cool the compressor or the condenser to help it run cooler and at the same time evaporates the un-needed water . but incase the water is so much then you have the tank to keep the water from spilling. sometimes they still put some hot pipes to further heat the water to evaporate.

check those pointers that i have mention.

in some case, the air in your place just got humid and wet that is why it has too many water condensation..
