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.

    God Bless.

There is water leaking out from the bottom of my furnace. It leaks whenever the ac is running.


Hello, sounds like a clogged condensate line or a faulty condensate pump if the unit has one. Cleaning the drain line should fix the problem.

Wall a/c is leaking water down log wall and puddling on floor.


When you sealed the holes outside, you trapped the water inside. The unit is designed to let the water run to the bottom of the pan and then go out the holes outside. Try unplugging one of them and see if that fixes the problem. Hope this helps.

Air Conditioner 3 in 1 danby SPAC12030 leaking water on the floor. No water in right side compartiment also no water in the back reservoir. Water leak from right side of the machine. From the right side...


I had that problem last year. When I took it apart I found that the drainage hoses that lead to the reservoirs were plugged with dust build up. I clean out the hoses as well as the rest of the insides. I have since placed the entire unit inside a shallow (under bed) style rubermaid tote and have not had any more water leaking. Hope that helps you.

Leaking air conditioner unit


I suppose that the water is coming from the unit where the blower motor is. Condensation is created by the evaporator coil while its running and is suppose to drain into a pan under it and through a pipe to the outside. This pipe could be stopped up. The easiest way to fix that is to blow air through the pipe from the outside. It probably comes out close to the outside unit. It could be that your inside filter is dirty causing reduced air flow and making the evaporator freeze too. Change the filter. That may help. There are other steps that you could take if these don't help. Contact me by email if you need to. Cant run over there because I'm in Missouri but may be able to help in a chat room. kstfas@yahoo.com
