Danby air conditioner. Model # DPAC8020 or 7599 according to the Manual. The water is leaking out, it seems to be around the "Quick connect" nozzle at the back. The conection seems good, the tank is not full, it even does it when empty. It is not damaged and does still fill the tank while it leaks. Help please.

I believe that model has a catch tray under the coils which catch the droplets of water and route that water into the tank. First, make sure your unit is pretty level. Then take a look at the bottom of the coils for the catch tray to make sure it's not dislodged or not level. Lastly check the catch tray outlet to make sure it's not blocked and will allow water to flow easily into the tank. The other thing is to make sure the tank is inserted correctly, and the catch tray water is routed into it. You don't mention if it ever worked correctly, but if this unit has been working for a long while, it may be dirty and you need to clean it to get the water to drip down correctly.

Make sure the drainage port is closed as per the instructions. If you continue to have leakage you may have a leak in the tank.

Sounds like the drain line is blocked you would have to take this unit apart in order to check this. I would use a can of air to blow out the leakage. Also make sure the unit is level

If it is water in a thru window installation you will need to tilt the unit up a little so the condensate water drips outside. I hope this helps! Thank you and please leave feedback.

Danby PORTABLE Air Conditioner model DPAC10071 is leaking water from bottom base. The unit is 2 weeks old.

The base needs to be dumped regularly. The air conditioner sweats water during operation and the pan collects it. Your manual should give you the procedure on how this is done. In some cases there is a hose attached to the drain pan so that you can direct the drainage to a more conventional drain location.

Seems fully operational but not blowing cold air

Sounds like you may have a small leak in the sealed system. If you don't have the receipt, contact the factory and provide them with your model and serial numbers, and if they fall within the warranty manufacture date, you should be able to get any Danby factory authorized service center to repair it for you, in accordance with the factory warranty policy.
