Question about Danby Air Conditioners

1 Answer

I require the attachment that allows you to connect my dehumidifier to a hose, so that we can go away for a little while and not have to worry about emptying the resevoir. The appliance may well have come equipped with such a device but we have been unable to find one and our local Home Depot, from where we aquired the machine, is sold out of dehumidifiers and has no spare parts of any kind.

All I wanted was to purchase the attachment for my dehumidifier.  I did not want to sign up for a plan.  Please answer the question.  Surely Danby sells this part, just tell me where to find it.

Dandy portable A/C model DPAC12010H will run only about an hour before it needs to be drained of water. It is not in the dehumidifier mode either, but the A/C mode. It used to run about two weeks and...


There are several causes: Higher than normal humidity levels. The exhaust hose has to much downward drop or is partially clogged and is not allowing moisture to be exhausted thru the hose and out the window, like it should. Another heat producing appliance is operating near the unit. Dirty or clogged air intake filter(s).

More than likely it is not a mechanical problem causing it. It's an environmental issue.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Samsung dehumidifier model HD4080A I'd like to get a drain tube. Do you know of the kind/size I need? If so, please provide. Thank you.


Generally, all that is needed is a section of garden hose, no longer than 5 feet.. The female connection of the garden hose attaches to the male drain hose connection on the unit. A water hose for a washing machine will work,

Hi there and thanks for the allocades.

Unfortunately, I have never seen your original question and have no way to 'pull it up' so, I am shooting from the hip so to say.

Are we talking about a dehumidifier here? Attache a hose to the catch pail and run the hose to a floor drain

Air conditioner? Make sure the window AC is tipped so the outside edge of the bottom is lower than the inside. This will allow condensate to run to the out of doors.

Block? I dunt know ... to hold the outside in the proper position.

If you will clarify your quesitons ... more particulars without going crazy, I will try to address any conderns you may have.

Thanks for your using FixYa.com

What do I have to do to connect a drainage hose to my 45 pint haier dehumidifier?


1. Remove the plastic screw on cap for the right rear side of the dehumidifier. (Keep the rubber insert well for future use)

2. Using a 40" long section Garden Hose (you furnish) , screw it to the direct drain opening. Be sure the female hose connection has a washer insert in it, If not, it will leak.

3. Position the dehumidifier as close as you can to the floor drain.

4. Position the open end of the drain hose directly over the floor drain & start the unit.

When the direct drain feature is no longer being used. Plug the Open end of the hose with the rubber cap provided. And water will then drain into the bucket.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Have connected the internal tube to self-drain, but it does not by-pass the internal or external bucket....Please help, as i would like to drain automatically to the outside, without using or emptying the...


The drain tube/hose can only be used in Dehumidifier Mode. The drain hose can be connected to a garden hose, but the hose can not exceed 40"in length. As, it relies entirely on gravity to drain. In addition, the warm air exchange hoses must vent inside the room when using Dehumidify mode.

, using it during air conditioning mode, would not be feasible.

Hope this helped you.

Not draining from the hose. Pail filling up with water


You need to check the hose and the outlet it's connected to on the dehumidifier for clogs.The dehumidifier will divert the water to the bucket, if the aforementioned is clogged.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have a HONEYWELL dehumidifier (30 pints) and I would like to set it to drain directly. I hooked-up a hose to it and ran it in a drain. but it don't seem to work, the bucket still fills up and then...


Louis, some models do not require that the bucket be placed back in the unit, if a drain hose is connected. You'll need to check your Owners Manual on that. The other thing is, where the hose is connected may be clogged and is forcing the water to go into the bucket. Disconnect the hose coupling and check for clogs. Also, keep in mind, the dehumidifier does not have a pump. It relies on gravity to move the water through the hose. If the hose is longer than 5 feet, is kinked or not sloped downward, it can't drain the water.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

My Danby Premiere DPAC 13009 is leaking water through the bottom. I have attached the continuous drainage hose, and no water is going through it. I tried to manually drain the tank using the drain at the...


Water is collected from cooling mode, not just dehumidifier mode. It does not always evaporate into the exhaust stream due to design limitations.


Of course the water should never leak even on the hottest day. Two suggestions:


Try removing the hose and attaching the external tank to see if it has any effect. Otherwise, you'll need to locate the exact source of the leak.

My air conditioners is a everstar model mpa-08cr, and i need to instal the water hose on the side of unit.


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.
