Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Portable a/c water problems

\015 I have a 9,000btu Maytag portable a/c and it was working fine but recently it started to beep for full water tank. I would drain it but a few hours later, same thing. I'm thinking there is a water evaporator problem? Any assistance you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!\015

Answers :

Either the area you are cooling is extremely humid or your a/c is freezing up, shutting off  and melting alot of ice before it comes back on.

Water leaking I have an edgestar 13,000 BTU Portable A/C, and just recently it started leaking water out of the front bottom, in little spurts of water, while it is on. My A/C is set on a set of plastic drawers, which is caving in a bit under the pressure, but it has been like this for months, so i can't imagine that's the problem... What can I do to resolve this issue?

The air coming out of my Haier CPRB09XC7 Portable Air Conditioner has gotten warmer and dryer. I'm sure that i need to add water but i do not know how as the manual was lost a while ago. Do I just need to add water? If so how do I do that. Or is it another problem?


Actually, sportsfan, you don't need to add any water. In fact, there is no way to do it. Your unit works much the same way a dehumidifier does with auto evaporation function. In other words, it collects the humidity out of the room air a evaporates i ... Haier CPRB09XC7 Portable Air Conditioner

Afternoon, I have a major problem with my Dimplex DAC15HC portable air-conditioner. It either requires constant top-ups to its external water tank, or the main evaporative water tank leaks constantly, irrespective of both tanks being emptied on a daily basis. At this rate, I'll be re-carpeting the room the unit is in!! Any help would be gratefully received. Cheers, Simon


Hi SAJJF2,\015\012\015\012Its not leaking. As the fan blows air across the cold coils the water in the air condenses on to the coil. When enough water condenses it forms drops which drip out of the AC unit. In humid parts of the world AC ... Air Conditioners

Haier Portable CPRB08XCJ 8000 BTU A/c just installed today. Not even a really hot day. Ran it for 5 hours and temp went form 82 to 77, which was fine. However, there is a puddle of water under the machine and the rug is soaked. It is supposed to have self evaporating and not need to be emptied. this is brand new, so I don't think dirty filters, coils etc are a problem. What do I do now? Plese help!


You're right - this unit has 'self-evaporation' of it's 'condensation water.'\015\012\015\012Problem is - the water is 'not draining correctly into the pan.' If you turn off all power to the machine and look into it - you will find a pla ... Haier Air Conditioners

Drainage Hi, I have the portable Maytag AC unit mentioned in this forum. I have had it for two years, and I still haven't figured out how to address this problem. The unit just shuts off. The only way to resolve this is to tip the back so water can come out of that small black tube. I assume there is a better way because it only stays on for a short while, then it turns off again and I must repeat the procedure. My friend has rigged it up so that the tube is pushed down into a bucket, and it dra

I have Amtrol water heater. Recently I noticed that boiler trying to start several times till it finally starts. I decided to check if it is a boiler or water heater problem and turned on house heating system that was OFF for summer time. Boiler started immediately without any trying atemptes. Looks like it is a water heater problem. My qustion is: what should I change most likely - temp. sensor or temp.control? Thank you. Vlad


That's a good question. What a shop would do, is try one, then, if that didn't work, try the other, in this case- if they had the parts. It's hard to test the sensor correctly, and the temp. control might be intermittent, which means it would sh ... Air Conditioners

Boiler: Vokera Option age: 10-12 years old (guess) Symptoms: when the central heating system engages the heat exchanger makes kettling/banging noises which continues until the systems switches itself off. Then re-engages problems start again, then off, then on and so on... Funnily enough the noises are most apparent at the hot water outlet. The problems only occur when central heating is on. With the system switched to hot water only = no problems. Tried the usual noise reducing additives thi

We have a well. It always gave us clear water until the pump broke. Mt husband replaced the pump and ever since the water is brown, rusty dirty. He let water flow out with a garden hose for several days, the problem still exists. Do you think it is the pipes, pump, or are there chemicals to put in the well to clear the problem? Do you have any solutions we could perhaps try? Thank you


Sounds to me like the pump is disturbing the sediment in the bottom of the well when it energizes. You could try placing the pump in perferated sleeve if it is a deep well pump. Or maybe a 5 gallon bucket with perferations cut in it, in case it will ... Air Conditioners

You are probably running a low flow shower head and have not had any maint. done on the unit. When the water flow is low and the unit is dirty it can't exchange enough heat to the water and this causes the heat exchanger to gradually increase in temp ... Air Conditioners
