    After having the unit unplugged for at least fifteen minutes it restarts... then is full again after a couple hours when the reservoir is only half full.

I have a commercial cool 7000BTU portable air conditioner and it seems to have shut itself down and displays a red flashing alarm light. What can I do to get it working again?


Karen, the flashing red light indicates that the water collection tank is full and needs to be emptied.
You can finds the drain plug on the rear of the unit just above floor level.

It can either be drained into a low sided bowl or pan capable of holding 1 quart of water. or you can disconnect the exhaust hose(s) and roll the unit to a floor drain or outside to drain it.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a comfort aire pac-121 and the display is reading e4 and the ac is not working. i can't find a manual on line. How can I fix the problem? thanks andy


I have the same model, though several years old, and on mine E4 simply means the reservoir is full. Try emptying the reservoir tank and then turning the power on again. If the drain hose outlet isn't angled down, the water drains into the tank, which will need to be emptied regularly. (For constant use, may need to be emptied several times a day.)

My unit displays P2 mode flashes red wont turn.....


P2 error indicates that the spill reservoir in the base of the unit is full.
Solution:
Move the unit to a location that is suitable for draining water from the unit. Remove the plug in the lower center of the back of the unit and allow the water to completely drain (Remember to replace plug.)
Remember...this is not the water tank on the side. This is the water than can collect in the bottom of the unit. Take it outside and drain it

Red light on??


that means the internal tank is full and needs to be emptied. Drain useing a bucket or the hose that came with the system. Open up drain caps and just drain it. Top and bottom caps.

The P1 code means the lower water bowl is full.
Put a pan under it an pull the lower plug (some 10" below the upper drain plug that I hope you have a hose attached to.

Red light is flashing continuesly


Ok I found a temporary solution. I opened up the unit (yes there are a lot of screws) I checked the float switches and they worked and even unplugging the water level wire connection to the main board did not get rid of the red flashing light. But if you unplugged the connection from the front panel to the main board but leave the infrared remote still plugged in the main lights and control are not on but you can still work the unit by remote. When in this configuration the compressor will come on and the unit will cool. So I think that part of the problem is on the front panel circuit board or maybe somewhere on the main board. But physically the compressor/relay/ switches work. A short term solution until I can get a new board.

Cheers!
