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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
