Question about Danby Portable Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Leaking Hi, Our Danby AC is leaking water everywhere. This is the 4th year we have run it but it did sit for 2 winters outside in below freezing temperatures. We ran it on dehumidify the first 2 years we had it, then moved provinces and it sat outside. Last summer since we live in a dryer climate, we only ran it on AC and only for about a month then it spent another winter outside in our shed. This year, we again are running it on AC and after running it on and off for a month, it has now started to leak water everywhere, soaking 1 huge towel about every 3 to 4 hours. We have emptied all the water reservoirs, both the back one and the internal one. My husband tried to get the cover off to see if a hose was leaking or cracked but once he got all the screws out, he couldn't get the cover to come off. We also hear a gurgling sound constantly. The unit still runs and cools well, it's just a pain to have to change all those towels! Thanks in advance for your help!

Is there a condensate trap in the line before the discharge?
Also is the orifice or near it cracked?
With all the movement and expansion and contraction due to the temperature changes in the seasons and conditions, there might be a crack somewhere else.
Be ready with a Wax Ring for a toilet ( a new one ).
They usually seal it up fairly well.
Works for me until I can get a new pan.
God Bless.

    The gurgling sound is usually from no condensate trap.

Why does my Buick Rendevous, 2005, leak water into both front floorboards?

Is it leaking water or Anti Freeze?
If it's Anti Freeze you can pull down the rug or floor mat to check, you should also smell the Anti Freeze. This means your heater core is leaking & has to be replaced, if it's not leaking bad you can try a sealer called Aluma seal (my spelling could be wrong),looks about the size of a roll of dimes, most auto stores have it.
If it's water, my guess is the AC condensation hose is blocked. Does it leak only when the AC is on? this hose runs outside, usually on the
passenger side behind the front wheel, when the AC is on & condensation builds up, you will see water coming out on the ground, this is normal, but if that hose is pinched or blocked the water could end up running onto your floor. Hope this helps.

There's water leaking from side of heater

this is 100% broken heat exchanger its the coils inside of heater that heats the water this usually happines from really old age or because your climate temperature is below freezing and broke the coils, i see it all the time in winter season, best way to prevent this is to run your heater for fifteen minutes every month and make sure pool equipment runs all day everyday when its really cold out you can start running system normaly after your outside temp is warmer. its better to get a new heater when this happines heat exchanger is hard to install for most tech's pretty much have to take whole top part of heater off and is also expensive part

Uline Ice Machine leaking underneath?

I would recommend to call U-line and let them know about the problem. They would recommend to get the unit back to them so they can review it. Make sure nothing was done to the unit. Leave it as is. If they find a defect with the unit then they will ask for estimates. U-line will probably pay for the unit to be brought back to them.

Icetube leaking water inside freezer and outside back of freezer

Your refrigerator needs a new water valve and possibly some new water tubing. You can find the correct part by going to and entering the refrigerator's model number in the parts search field. When you have the valve, shut off the water to the refrigerator. If you're not sure how to do that, just shut off water to the entire house. Be sure to run the kitchen sink after you shut the water off to relieve any presure and double check that the water is completely shut off.

Be sure to unplug the refrigerator before you start this project...water and electricity aren't friends! Using a 1/4" nut driver or socket, remove the cardboard or metal cover off the back of the refrigerator. Follow the water line to the water valve, unscrew the nut going to the valve, and remove the water line. There are 2 screws holding the water valve to the refrigerator cabinet; remove the screws and gently pull the valve out. Unplug the electrical connectors and remove the water lines. Take the new valve, connect the water lines and electrical plugs, screw the valve back into place, attach the water line and turn the water back to to test for leaks.

Since the valve has been leaking inside your freezer it would be a great idea to clean out your freezer and let the water tube and lines thaw. Find a place for your frozen food, unplug the unit and let it sit overnight with the doors open. Don't forget to remove the ice bin, as these make quite the mess when the ice melts. Once it's thawed, plug it back in, make sure the water is on and not leaking and enjoy!

My Lars pool heater is leaking from within the casing.

Could also be a pin hole in the small copper tube that runs from the top of the heater to the thermostat. This has happened to me a few times. Small hole, but lots of water comes out. Get some 3/8" copper tubing and 2 compression fittings. It is easy to replace this tube. The only pain is that you have to take off the top of the heater to reach the end of the tube.
