It sounds like both of your units has a refrigerant leak, if its not still under warranty, time for a new unit.

The unit could be slightly tilted to the inside or the drain tube going from the inside section to the outside is stopped up needing to be cleaned.

Portable Air Conditioning great portable air cooling


Portable air conditioning offers you the convenience of mobility. All you have to do is roll the portable air conditioner to the room in which it's needed. Install an exhaust hose out a window or other opening (everything you need is provided) and turn it on. The installation process for these units is very simple. These portable air conditioning units are built small enough to be very mobile and are supplied with wheels for easy movement. A portable air conditioner will also work very well in apartment situations where you will often find a window unit is unacceptable.

Portable air conditioners are very unique in that they are portable and can be easily moved to different locations in your home or business. They can be a highly effective way to either help out an existing HVAC system in one room or cool a single room entirely. They are also one of the best ways to cool a room or area without having to install a window mounted unit.

These air conditioners use a compressor and Freon to cool just like normal air conditioning. They are very effective in cooling rooms and to keep the humidity low. Like normal air conditioners portable units extract hot air that must be vented. That is why they need to have the exhaust hose to the outside. These units can cool air as well as air conditioning done with window air conditioners. However they do not require installation like conventional window air conditioners this makes them very convenient for seniors or physically challenged people. Most portable air conditioners are supplied with a window kit. This kit contains exhaust hoses that will work in any window: double-hung, casement, awning or slider. Because they vent through an opening like a window they require no permanent mounting like window air conditioning.

Portable air conditioners are a very good cooling option for those who can't use the more conventional air conditioning methods. Remember though that this type of unit is not as efficient as most window units or conventional air. So while they may make your environment cooler, it won’t turn your tent into a room at the local hotel.

So as you can see these air conditioning units have some great advantages over other types of air conditioning. They are a great alternative for unique applications where central air or conventional window units are either unfeasible or too expensive. During special events, portable air conditioning can also be a great way to keep guests or equipment cool and comfortable. Always be aware though that because portable air conditioning will remove moisture from the air, they will also need to be drained occasionally similar to a dehumidifier.

Does your application warrant a permanent air conditioner of some form or should you just use a portable one? There are some interesting things to consider when making that choice. Weigh out all of the different options and make that decision based on what will best suit your needs.

I have a sharp window AC unit, model af-609x. does it have a drain hole? there is no water coming out of it, but when we take it out of the window we get soaked from water somewhere inside the unitl


All window air conditioners will remove moisture from the air if there is any. Most window air conditioners collect this moisture in the bottom pan of the air conditioner and attempt to evaporate the moisture. The evaporation process works as follows: First, the water drips down off of the cold evaporator coils on the front of the unit. Then the water collects in the bottom of the air conditioner base, the "pan." If the air conditioner is installed properly it will be tilted slightly back.

The water then collects near the back of the unit. On some units, the fan blade used to cool the rear condensing coils will have a rim on the outside of the fins of the blade. This rim, or "slinger," will come close to touching the inside of the air conditioner pan when the fan is spinning. As the water collects in the pan and reaches the depth necessary for the fan ring to touch it, the ring will lift some of the water up and the fan will blow it at the condensing coils. Because the coils are warm, they will evaporate the moisture to the outside.

While this is happening it is normal to hear water splashing and sloshing around. As long as there is no water leaking inside the room that is being cooled there is no cause for concern.

Never drill into the bottom of and air conditioning unit to "let the water out."

Fan in a ac unit outside not working, what cause it. and do you have the fan motor for sale.


Well I don't have a motor for sale but it just might be the contactor is bad or have burnt points. Shut it down and floow the wires back to the contactor . observe the contactor while someone starts the unit if it engages then its most likley the motor and though it looks simeple you need to be certain that 1, you have the right motor adn 2. be certain that the fan baldes are placed in the same position in the unit that it can out off.. not does so will affect air flow across the coils.. good luck.

I have a Goodman A/C unit model number AWUF36106BA and serial number 1010684384. It keeps shutting off on us and we have had a repair man come out and said the problem we had is the emergency shut off...


If the drip pan switch is shutting the unit down , this means you have a condensate drain issue. Be careful about wiring around any safety switch, especially if the furnace is in the attic or on a second floor. You could have water dripping on the ceiling. The drip pan switch is a safety switch. The best thing to do would be to inspect the furnace. The pan is underneath it. Look inside the pan if you can. If it is full of water, use a shop vac and vac the water out of the pan. If there is no water, you can locate the safety switch, take the two wires loose from it and just wire them together. Caution: This will be wiring around the condensate safety switch that could cause water to leak on the ceiling or floor depending where the furnace is. Don't go too long without getting someone out to clean the condensate drain out.

Why does our LG air conditioning unit leaks? It's inside our room and the dripping water is damaging our wooden floor.. Please help.. thanks!


The drain is stopped up or the unit is not tilted back enough to drain out the back. If the drain is stopped up sometimes you can blow it out with compressed air from the bottom of the front coil. If the unit is not tilted enough in the wall or window it cannot drain out of the proper drain hole in the back of the unit. Hope this helps you.

I have a blizard split model 10.5 years old in a caravan. model sa101 the air feels cooler but seems to have no noticable difference in actual temperture and compressor seems to run continuously ...


Please understand first, air conditioning system not only cooling the area but also removing the heat. If heat in the room stays constantly, even 24 hrs running a/c couldn't cool the room.
Now, why the a/c could not cool the room or remove the heat from the room.
Check air filter, evaporator coil and blower wheel for clean. If not service the unit immediately. And also check indoor fan motor rpm. If rpm is low, replace fan capacitor. Check for gas pressure to confirm no leak or running with short of gas. It's advisable to service both indoor and out door once in 6 months at least. Otherwise, your electric bill will kill you lot. Thanks.

Danby dpac7008 portable air conditioner


I want to know how these portable air conditioners are supposed to be set up. Do they have to be on the same as the window out of which the hose goes? If the window is 4.5 feet off the ground, does the air conditioning unit need to be put on a table to make it and the window on the same level?

To the best of my knowledge the unit can stay on the floor and included the product features listed below and it does have a dehumidifier reservoir with direct drain and to make sure if you use the drain hose that the hose is higher than the item that you are draining the water into or you can elevate the unit so that the hose can drain outside and out the window - but you can also drain the water into a bucket or some thing that will hold water. I hope this will help you…..
