Question about GE APN10AA Portable Air Conditioner

1 Answer

GE Portable Airconditioner - Model APN10AA Serial # GG509122

The water full light comes on seems like every 10 minutes. I unplug the drain plug and let the water drain. Not much water comes out of the unit. Then I restart the unit. It works for about 10-15 minutes and shuts down again. I can hear the fan running but the condenser has shut down. Current temps 85-92 degress not normal for this area. Is this a function of the system or do I have to have a service tech come and check the unit out. TJ

Ours was leaking water. After taking the covers off,cleaning it,and draining all the water out, I started getting the same problem with the light coming on every 7 minutes. I actually added some water to the system till it was too full and then drained it out through the plug. The light still came on every 7 minutes until I turned the unit off and then unplugged it for a few minutes. I plugged it back in, turned it on and reset the temperature. It seemed to reset itself and kept running normally. BB

    Mine was doing the same thing, flooding the floor and not filling the cup. I took the back cover
    off and the condenser fins were totally clogged with dust. You can only get to it by taking off the back cover (about 10 screws). Cleaned all the compacted dust off the condenser fins, seems to be OK now. I also ran a cable up the two black tubes that drip the water into the cup (you can see this if you remove the cup), and I clicked the outside tube valve (that you connect a hose to if you wish) on and off several times. One of those fixed the problem I think it was the clogged condenser fins causing the unit to sweat where it was not supposed to..

My washer is not working it begins to spin stops and has the letters LE appearing.


Hi,

This a common problem for all front loaders. Your washer will not drain or work 'cause your outlet filter is clogged or an unusually heavy load. The small door is on the left side front bottom of your washer. Remove the door with a putty knife or thin butter knife inserted in the middle top of the access panel door. Drain the water from the filter housing by pulling the tube out of the clip and unplugging, allow it to run into a bucket while the machine is in spin only mode. This mode is acheived when the washer is first powered on press the spin button until no spin is reached then run. Run in this mode until no water is draining from the tube in the bucket. Keep the tube as low as possible. When water has stopped coming out of the tube turn off the washer and unplug from the wall. This step is important because this resets the fault. Expect some water to come out when you open the filter housing by turning counterclockwise until you can pull the filter from its housing. Clean out your filter, return to housing turning clockwise until seated and recap the tube and place in the holder, refit the cover and plug back into the wall. Fixed. You may also need to lighten the load a bit but I always try full on load anyways. If it fails again just lighten, unplug wait >1 minute then replug and run.

Goodluck..

My unit is flashing a red light in the water full indicator. Therefor the air conditioner will not function. Both water tanks are completely empty. It is a portable Danby unit. Model SPAC 8499-3. Any...


You may need to reset the unit, if you did not turn it OFF & unplug it when you drained the tanks
To reset the units electronics, turn the unit OFF and unplug it for 15 minutes. After the time has elapsed, plug the unit in & turn it ON. The electronics should have reset and reverted back to the original factory settings. If so, you can adjust the settings to where you like.

How do i ckean the full water on an LG Portable AC?


If draining the tank didn't solve the problem. Turn the unit OFF and unplug it for 15 minutes. Then plug the unit back in and turn it ON. Turning that time out, hopefully the electronics reset and reverted back to the original factory settings. If so, the Full light should not illuminate.You can then set the controls as you like.

Hope this helped and thanks for choosing FixYa.

The red l water full indicator light keeps flashing and won't reset. What do we do


Assuming you have drained the tank and replaced the drain plug. Turn the unit OFF and Unplug it for 10 minutes. Then plug the unit back in and turn the unit ON. During that 10 minute time out, the unit's electronics should have reset and reverted back to the original factory settings. At this point you can set the controls as you like.

Just bought a 12000 btu standing air condition. Plugged it in and water light comes on . Took out drain plug to check water, no water. light keeps blinking. checked reset and test, light still blinks....


I checked your Owner's Manual and according to it, you have done all the right things. I will suggest one other thing. Turn the unit OFF and unplug it for 15 minutes. Then plug it back in and turn the ON/OFF Switch to ON. During that 15 minute timeout, the electronics should have reset and reverted back to the original factory settings. If it did, the full light should not come ON. If it does, contact Royal Sovereign Customer Support (in the USA) 1-800-397-1025. In Canada 1- 866- 961-6673.

I hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Your base pan may be full of water, check at the bottom of the unit for some drain plug. Drain out the water and start the unit.

Red light is flashing continuesly


Ok I found a temporary solution. I opened up the unit (yes there are a lot of screws) I checked the float switches and they worked and even unplugging the water level wire connection to the main board did not get rid of the red flashing light. But if you unplugged the connection from the front panel to the main board but leave the infrared remote still plugged in the main lights and control are not on but you can still work the unit by remote. When in this configuration the compressor will come on and the unit will cool. So I think that part of the problem is on the front panel circuit board or maybe somewhere on the main board. But physically the compressor/relay/ switches work. A short term solution until I can get a new board.

Cheers!
