Question about Danby DPAC8020 Air Conditioner
I purchased this air conditioner unit a couple months ago and it has not worked right since the start. When blowing cold air it works but as soon as the compressor turns off, it starts to blow hot air. As well, the as it blows cool air, the "room" temperature seems to go up, sometimes as high as 40 degrees Celsius. I have read and re read the installation manual and I am positive I have it set up correctly (vents are hooked up to a window, etc.).
You may have a factory defective unit that is not turning off the anti-frost heating coil (I have assumed yours contains this item based on your problem description). I would trade it in for a new unit, again assuming you have a warranty or the store offers a good in-store return policy. If this plan bombs, then open the unit and find the heating coil near the cool side of the radiator fins. then disconnect the power wires to the heater and prevent electrical short to wires with quality electrical tape.
