Air conditioners should not accumulate water and shut themselves off. You need to repair the drain.

Were do i get the manuel for model number ph3 12r03 is the model number were or how do I drain the water and can you send me a manual


Here is the link to the manual:

http://s3.amazonaws.com/szmanuals/b0348062b23e23cd40550b61e1dc5f43


Here are those particular instructions:


Compressor Indicator


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.

This type of unit does not drain into the outside unit. It drains into a nearby interior drain, or just to the outside near Inside unit. If the unit is cooling properly, you're ok.

Problem with Haier CPN10XC9 Portable Air Conditioner: water accumulates around bottom of filter area


Samsung E163 EEPROM option error? Program the right option codes!! In my case the complete airconditioning installation (3 x indoor and 1 x outdoor unit) didn't work because the E163 code was showed on one of the indoor unit. After I followed the procedure (remove batt from remote control, put them in again holding down the right knobs, etc see the manuals you can find on the internet) I programmed the right codes within 5 minutes and the problem was fixed, the error code was gone and the complete installation was working again. So don't replace boards, electronics etc....just put in de right option codes. John, Netherlands.

No this is not normal. take the cover off the unit and look between the fan and the indoor coil. Look down the coil and you will see that it sits in a pan. locate the drain hole in the pan and see if you left a plug in it.. alos be certain that any hoses attached to that drain are not crimped or plugged. Also tilt the unit a little bit to theout side of the window to insure a positive drain.. Let me know if this fixes the problem and I hope this helps

Water keeps on spilling out the back of the ARP 1000 ES Unit. I don't know how to empty the water container that must be located on the inside


The drain plug for draining accumulated water is located on the back of the unit's lower left side (as you're facing the back just to the left of the cord keeper. Unplug it, disconnect the exhaust hose and roll it to a drainage area. Unscrew the plug and let it drain. Securely replace the drain plug when draining is complete.

Hope this helped you.

Yes, you get a lot of water from the condensate that accumulates on the air handler finns. My house unit during the summer generates a gallon in two hours during the hot summer months. The water run off is dependent on the humidity.

Whirpool h8 error


I'm not a technician, but I'll share how I solved my problem. My portable whirlpool a/c wasn't working and had the H8 error code. I drained the water that was accumulated inside it and it started working again.

I have a Delonghi PAC A110L that has stopped working. When you plug it in it starts up but then powers down giving an error message that looks like FE but with the top line missing from the E


The unit is full of water at this point. If it is real humid it can not get rid of in fast enough via the air duct. Look for plug in back low. Watch out, have unit outside or a low pan to catch water when you pull the plug.

Support of 8000btu goldstar/its leaning backwards?


If this is a window type aircon, yes, but not to much. This is to drain water accumulation on its basin, where its sink is located. Fan could **** the water and sprayed it to the electrical system. That could damaged itself. And also it is designed that way so that drain water doesn't go inside.

Its support should be rigid enough to support the unit, usually it start from its face plate and extended to its rear end, and then a bracket to reinforce support at the rear end.
