Question about Danby DPAC8099 Air Conditioner
A few days ago, I noticed water dripping from the front of the Danby portable AC. Unfortunately, when I moved it, the water tank fell off the back snapping the connector off the tank (not damaging the AC unit). I propped the empty water tank under the back spout overnight (it was really hot and couldn't live without it) and when I woke up, the tank was almost full. I hooked up a short hose to it in case the water wouldn't leave the small opening without the water tank connector. In the three years I have owned it, it probably wouldn't fill it in the whole summer. Other than trying to replace the connector to the water tank (if I can), any ideas why it is leaking water and now filling up the water tank so fast? Thank you in advance!

Look closely how the water flows from the evaporator to the tank. does it goes first to the condenser ?..or is there a heating pipe that is touching the tank in order to heat the water for it to evaporate?
here's the set up, your ac would cool and absorb moisture in the air and becomes water in the evaporator. these water is sometimes used to cool the compressor or the condenser to help it run cooler and at the same time evaporates the un-needed water . but incase the water is so much then you have the tank to keep the water from spilling. sometimes they still put some hot pipes to further heat the water to evaporate.
check those pointers that i have mention.
in some case, the air in your place just got humid and wet that is why it has too many water condensation..
