Somebody please help! My portable Aircon is flooding my room

Discussion in 'The Pub' at netrider.net.au started by Camel Salesman, Jan 1, 2009.

  1. I bought this Portable DeLongi 3000WATT Portable Air conditioning unit on wheels. Used it for the first time today in my room left the house for a blast on my bike, came home and my floor was completely covered in water...

    IT's coming from the machine why the hell is it leaking so much freaking water how do I empty it

    Help Its leaking as I typpe this ffs



    used 3 towels in 1 hour.

    P.S: Turning it off is NOT an option if you are not aware it is 40 Degrees here in Perth....

  2. RTFM

    At a guess I would say the emergency tank is full .... is it particularly high humidity in Perth at the moment? I'm assuming you have one of the "no drip technology" mono portable cooling units?

  4. Air conds dehumidify, i.e they take the water vapour from the air and collect it in their water tray.
    You need to either
    1. empty the tray periodically
    2. let the water drip into a bucket so you empty less often
    3. attach a hose the the tray drain and run somewhere it can drain away.

    Or read the manual. :)

  10. DON'T BLOCK THE HOLE
    Put a tray underneath it or attach a hose and lead it to a bucket or something.
    The air is humid so the air conditioner is doing its job.

  11. I can't tell if this guy is taking the piss or not.

    It reminds me of a joke post a while back about the water-cooling of computers (which is legitimate and safe if done properly) where some guy taped up his computer and filled it up with water, and then wondered why it didn't work. It was a joke of course, but some people actually believed that the guy really was that ignorant.

  16. Hey Camel Salesman, use atroops link to the manufacturer and download the manual.
    The hole that you have put the hose in is supposed to be plugged. You probably threw out the plug with the manual. Under the heading “End of seasons operations†it says remove the cap and to put it back after the tank is empty.

  17. According to the manual, the hole is meant to be plugged.

    The unit is meant to evaporate the water buildup over the condensation coils.
