Question about Danby DPAC8099 Air Conditioner

3 Answers

My Danby DPAC8099 leaks water. Neither the internal tank nor the optional external tank collect any water. The water runs out on the floor instead. I live where there is very high humidity. This unit worked great for the first 3 years. Do I have to remove the outside case to see what is wrong inside or is there some easy fix? Is there a schematic that will guide me.

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.

Water is collected from cooling mode, not just dehumidifier mode. It does not always evaporate into the exhaust stream due to design limitations.


Of course the water should never leak even on the hottest day. Two suggestions:


Try removing the hose and attaching the external tank to see if it has any effect. Otherwise, you'll need to locate the exact source of the leak.

My danby air conditioner/dehumidifier model dpac 8399-4 leaks water all over the floor and never fills the holding tanks what can I do to fix this problem?


Probably needs cleaning. I assume it is on a level surface. Water drips from the evaporator coil into a collection tray of some type and then drains into the holding tank, this tray is either broken or the outlet is plugged.
Good Luck,
Gilsh

I HAVE A DPAC8099. IT IS NOT COOLING WELL.DO I HAVE TO REFILL THE FREON


leak, make a test solution with kitchen soap and water and paint it on to the coils while it's running, when you see bubbles you've found the leak, mark the spot. turn off and very carefuly apply electronics solder in gererous amounts around the area. make sure you do not melt the copper!!! continue untill you find no more bubbles, then recharge to recomended pressure.

External tank not filling


I recently encountered the same issue. First off, with the external tank installed is there an icon on the display panel indicating the tank is installed?

No? Then the two sensors are not picking up the magnets in the the "arms" on the back of the tank. It's a poor design for sure, on my unit the tank does not sit flush enough to the back of the AC, if I held the tank firmly to the back the icon would come on. I just used a bit of cardboard at the bottom of the support tray to press the tank firmly to the back of the AC.

Theory is as the external tank fills up, water will run into the "arms" and raise the magnets tripping the switch which tells the unit it needs emptying. But the magnets in the arms are not strong enough if they are not close enough to the sensors. So my cardboard solution lasted only one tank.

I ended up getting some flat neodymium magnets (that I scavenged out of a hard drive), and taped to the sensor that had the gap. I wouldn't recommend doing this to both sensors since it would eventually overfill, only one sensor needs to "trip" for the compressor to turn off.

If you answered yes to the first question (the bucket icon is there), then it's most likely the pump not working on the internal reservoir, or something related to that. Can't help you there...

HOW DO YOU EMPTY THE WATER TANK


Which one? The internal water tank just slides out of its chassis (located on the left side, near the front). You might have slight spillage after a good tug or two.
For the external water tank, located the white "spout" that protrudes from the rear. Inside of this "spout", there is silver clip. Just press the clip inward and that should release the connector that is attached to the external water tank.

Danby DPAC 8099 Moisture Removal problem


If the dew point of the air in your place of operation is low you will not get moisture out of the air. Generally when the unit is first used it lowers the indoor humidity and you get a lot of moisture. Once things settle out the amount of moisture will decrease.
