    I thought I purchased a self evaporating unit. With the dehumidifier, I have to continually release water, which was full at the time the "Stop" indicator lit up. Thanks a bunch!

My kenmore 12000 btu portable air conditioner keeps switching to DH mode out of AC mode


That means that it is dehumidifying. Is the air coming out still cold? I assume you have tried using the mode button to switch it back? Is the air extremely humid? Perhaps it is humid enough that the machine needs to dry the air before safely operating as an AC. The manual is available here:

LG 1210 BXR portable air conditioner collecting water on "cool" setting. How do you fix this?


In AC mode, the unit still has some dehumidifying properties. So, it may be that there is more humidity in the air this Summer, than in prior years. Having to empty the tank every 24 hours is not unusual. Be sure that the air intake filter is clean & check the exhaust hose for obstructions.

Hope this helped you & thanks fr choosing FixYa.

My Haier 7000BTU portable AC unit is blowing hot air into the room from the back. We have the drain hose in and draining, so what might be the problem?


The drain hose is only to be used when the unit is in Dehumidifier Mode. In AC/Cooling Mode, there needs to be water in the tank to keep the coils cool. It is not recommended to use continuous drainage in AC Mode. My personal recommendation is do not operate Cooling Mode & Dehumidify Mode at the same time. As the dehumidify mode generates heat. Not something you need to be doing when you're trying to cool the room.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

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.

How do I get my LG 12000 BTU ac/dehumidifier to dehumidify


This is a quote from the manufacturer.

Dry mode is used to remove humidity from the room
without additional cooling. Once the set temperature
is reached, the compressor and circulation fan turns
off and only the exhaust fan will run. Fan speed is
pre-set and cannot be adjusted.

Red light on??


that means the internal tank is full and needs to be emptied. Drain useing a bucket or the hose that came with the system. Open up drain caps and just drain it. Top and bottom caps.
