Question about Danby DPAC8020 Air Conditioner

Danby Air Conditioner

After running for a while, my Danby AC makes a sort of high ticking noise. It's not in regular intervals but it ranges from 2 to 10 seconds apart. At night I'm ready to throw it out of the window. It's ticking now and I'm ready to toss it.

    And it's not the DPAC8020 Air Conditioner that I'm having the noise problem with. It's the DAC8075EE.

I have a danby premiere r410a air conditioner & it


This could be because there is a small seam in the connection of the ducts. Or it can be the air volume is traveling through a smaller duct to get to the blower in the furnace. You should call an air conditioning technician and ask them if there is anything you can do to stop this from happening. One option is to buy some duct seal and paint it.

My Danby DPAC1010 Portable Air Conditioner is dehumidifying when simply in AC mode. I don't want it to, but if fills up a 2 gallon bucket every 2-3 days. I've had it overflow twice and I cannot...


The only way to stop it from dehumidifying is to stop it. A dehumidifier is a AC that is 'tuned poorly'. In your machine, while in dehumidify mode, you actually are running the AC in 'slow".

It is a law of physics. Warm air can hold moisture. Cold air can not hold moisture. When you remove the heat from the air, the water has to go somewhere, so it condenses on the coils and drips into the tank. Yes, that is true: Heat is a thing, you have to remove heat from the air. You don't simply "cool it", you remove the heat.

Your Danby should have a automatic shut off that comes into play when the condensate tank gets full. MY Danby, which is a sllightly different model than yours, has a connection that allows me to connect a hose that I lead to a floor drain to disponse of the condensate (water).

If yours is not equipped with a shut off nor a drain and you say it fills every 2 to 3 days, the options I see that you have is to dump it every day, or - don't run it all the time, or - turn the setting to a higher number which will reduce the AC and dehumidifying effect. On the down side of that, your humidity will remain high at the higher setting.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com and thanks for letting me assist you this evening.

Fan is making clunking sound like it is hitting something.


Yes, it certainly can be, especially in high humidity. Run AC just about 1/4 way from max and crack the windows. The ac will work better and ice up less.

I've got a Danby DPAC 8399-4 portable heater/air conditioner. We usually use it as an A/C but we're trying to use the heater for the winter; we just brought it out of the closet. The fan barely works (and...


Check for obstructuions in the fan housing that may be hitting the fan blade, causing the noise and improper air flow.

Improper air flow will cause the uniot to overheat quickly and it will shut down on its high temperature limit switch.

You may also have a bad fan. Bad bearings will make a bad noise as well. Thios will cause the same symptoms described above.

Check for abstructions, if you can find one, remove it, if not replace the fan. You can usually reset the limit by simply turning off power and turning it back on after 10 min.

Makes loud noise when first turned on


It may have been damaged in shipping or from the manufacturer. I would consider exchanging it for a new one.
