    I have the same problem, the ft flashes yet the tank is empty. How do you fix it? They want me to find the receipt and send it to some far away place.

SOURCE: Full Tank

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.

My unit is flashing a red light in the water full indicator. Therefor the air conditioner will not function. Both water tanks are completely empty. It is a portable Danby unit. Model SPAC 8499-3. Any...


You may need to reset the unit, if you did not turn it OFF & unplug it when you drained the tanks
To reset the units electronics, turn the unit OFF and unplug it for 15 minutes. After the time has elapsed, plug the unit in & turn it ON. The electronics should have reset and reverted back to the original factory settings. If so, you can adjust the settings to where you like.

Hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

There is no drain pipe for the unit I have. It has a cap on the back but no hold, how does the condensation.


Self Evaporating Technology - During the cooling process, water is extracted from the air into the unit. Most of this water is then recycled and used to cool the unit and make it run more efficiently. Approximately 65 to 70% of water condensed is evaporated out with the exhaust air, reducing the hassle of emptying the water tank constantly. This unit has a built-in water tank (not removable) with a drain outlet, and a water tube. When the tank fills, the compressor stops operating and the power light will flash. This indicates that the tank should be emptied.

With code Ft at delonghi pac c100


Ft = normally means empty the internal tank, this is normally done at end of season cleaning storage. On some units there is a small ''bung'' low on the rear which will empty the tank - the unit should then reset when powered up. Hope this helps

I have ft error on delonghi air conditioner and I've emptied the tank and the filter is clean. nothing to empty as the the unit is brand new .ft won't go away. how do i fix this


Theres a little floatation type device in the removable tank that triggers a switch just above the tank on the unit itself. Just check that that isn't stuck in the "Full Tank" position. I had the same problem and jiggled the switch to make sure it could move and my A/C was back. Hallelujah!!! Hope it works for you...

New unit installed when turned on "FT" light displays


Remove the tank if it is removable and see if you can determine how it is sensing the tank level. Maybe it's a float switch that is stuck or maybe it works by the weight of the tank. Either way your problem will be with whatever senses the tank level.

How do reset this unit when the filter light flashes ?


You still need to empty the water out of the unit. There are two hoses at the bottom on the back of the unit. Empty both of them and hopefully, the unit will reset and start back up. It worked for me.

It's actually "Ft", which means "Full Tank".  The instruction manual says to drain the internal safety tank through the drain hoses.
To drain the tank, open the cover on the rear of the appliance. Pull out the 2 drain hoses, take off the caps, and let all the residual water flow out.  When all the water has been drained, place the caps back on the hoses and put the hoses back inside.
It also says you need to clean the filters and let them dry thoroughly before putting them back.
This is also the procedure for "End of Season Operations."
Hope this helps!
