Question about Danby DPAC8099 Air Conditioner
On mine, the small tubing connects to a T shaped plastic piece with a screw hole in the end. That screw connects to the tube but the problem for me is the nut and bolt which connects through the T tube has sheared off and now I need to find a new one. Does anybody know the name or number of that BLACK T shaped part with the screw hole in one end and the other leads into the large water container (with a screw top) They need to connect and they don't! HELP!

More than likely, either the tubing that drains water to the tanks(s) has become disconnected or it is clogged. I betting that it's clogged. to troubleshoot this, follow the instructions below.
Turn the unit OFF & Unplug it.
Remove the water collection buckets and look up inside the bucket holder cavity. You will see either a drain hole or small tubing that drains the water into the bucket. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reinstall the bucket, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor it for any leakage.
NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you can use something similar, like a long pipe cleaner. NO wire coat hangers though.
Hope this helps you solve the problem.

There should be a water drain from the condenser to the tank, find it and look for something plugging the drain. After three years dirt may have built up blocking the path of the flow of the water.
