I can't seem to remove the water tank from the side of the unit. It is saying that the tank is full.
The quick connect that plugs into the back of the cabinet snapped off, I just need the plastic male end that goes into the quick connect, the plastic part has a small rubber O ring on it and is threaded to attach to the External water tank. My model no. says DPAC10030 page 6 Fig. 37 and 38 is what I am referring to. Thank you for any assistance.

Re: Remove Water Tank
require you empty the unit by hand (usually less expensive units). These have either a removable water tank which must be emptied, or have an internal tank and a drain, where you have to empty the water into your own pan. Sometimes the drain is on the bottom of the unit, making it hard to find a pan that will fit under the unit to drain it.
discharge most of the water through the exhaust hose (usually more expensive units). This is called "Auto-evaporation" or "Self-evaporating" feature.
Most units are made so that they can be drained with a gravity hose that flows to a drain inside or outside your house. But the water must drain down. If the drain is higher than the unit, you may need a condensation pump to move the water upward. A few units do include a pump to send the water a short distance through the drain pipe.

I have a five yera old Danby portable unit model 10030. The machine makes a beeping noise and the read out says water tank needs emptying. On inspection both the internal and external tanks are empty. I disconnect the unit and then reconnect and it will condense for a while before the beeping strts again and the fan only blows. Can anyone help

Here are those particular instructions:
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.
Regarding the AC , it does not come out or the air is present but does not become cold? These are details you should post because experts need a clear picture of it before any solution.
now i am posting this here but i will ash you a further info anyways!thanks,

When the tank is FULL, the unit should automatically shut OFF and the FULL light will illuminate on the control panel. If that is not happening, the float valve inside the tank near the top, may be stuck in the DOWN position. Remove the bucket, look for the float valve and jiggle the handle to see that it moves freely and is not broken.
I hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.
There is no need to top of the water tank. When the unit is running it collects condensation and fills the tank with water. When the tank is FULL the Full indicator will illuminate and the unit will shut OFF. You will ten need to drain the water from the rear drain hole.
To further assist you, in case you have misplaced your Owners Manual. I have included a link to it that you can download & print for future reference.

Hey there, just follow these simple steps then you'll be on your way To connect the continuous drain option. Remove the water tank from the cabinet. Inside the cabinet (water tank area) you will find a section of hose hanging beside the water tank, which is plugged at the end. Remove the plug from the end of the hose and install the drain hose connector (included with this unit) into the end of this hose section. Route the end of the hose (with drain connection) into the water tank, then through the hole provided in the face of the water tank. Attach a section of garden hose (to suit your continuous drain option requirements) to the drain hose connector. Place the open end of the hose directly over the drain area in your basement floor. Please make sure the drain hose section routed through water tank does not interfere with the correct positioning of the water tank inside the cabinet, or the will fail-safe switch mechanism will be activated, not allowing the unit to operate.
I had the same error and the tank was not even full. I took the cover off of the unit which consisted of removing 10 screws. The water tank is on the bottom left side. I then removed the float which was a small sensor with a styrofoam float. I removed the float (2 more screws) and moved it up and down. It did not appear to move very smooth but after moving it back and forth a few time it seemed better. I put the float back in ensuring it was at the low point, screwed it back in and then tested the unit. It came on and appears to work fine now. I unplugged again putt the cover back on it has now ran 30 minutes no problems.
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.
