Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for one room climate control Our cape cod has whole house AC, but the master bedroom upstairs gets hot. This appliance is perfect for keeping our bedroom cool without having to over-cool the rest of the house

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fan only works on high setting We bought this about 3 weeks ago at the recommendation of our doctor to help treat my husband's asthma. We haven't used the air conditioning setting at all but use the fan setting mainly to draw out the air in the room and clear it of allergens. From day one the fan setting will only work on high even if it is supposed to work on high or low. Setting it up after lugging it home was a hassle so we don't want to disassemble the setup and haul it back to exchange it for another unit. The remote also doesn't work well with the unit even if you stand right in front of it. So, it is rather useless. If I try to set the unit on Low it automatically goes into the air conditioning mode instead of staying in the fan mode. It is frustrating, but again, we don't want to go through the hassle of returning it for a different unit. Had I known this wouldn't work from the get go I would never have bought it. The noise level is pretty high with this too. It makes as much noise as a standard window mounted unit but you don't have the unsightly box hanging out the side of your house. This is the first portable air conditioner we've owned and I doubt we will ever get one again. It takes up a lot of space on the floor being that you need a 20 inch clearance around the entire unit. I'm thinking the air conditioning mode will work great when summer comes around and if it weren't for the fan mode only working on high and the remote being tempermental, I would have rated this higher.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unit cools small rooms Purchased unit to cool a bedroom - does very well, but you do need to drain the water (we use a hose into a bucket). It would be better if the hose was insulated as it gets hot and radiates heat back into the room.

How do I empty water tank 

Asked by: RhondaWhiten
Unplug the air conditioner and disconnect the exhaust hose from the back of the cabinet. Move the air conditioner to a suitable drain location or outdoors. You may also place a pan, under the drain, that will hold up to 3 pints of water. Remove the drain cap and the rubber plug from the drain outlet. Once the water collection tank is drained, reinstall the rubber plug and the drain cap, making sure it is on securely. Place the air conditioner in the desired location, reconnect the exhaust hose, and plug in the air conditioner.

Why does it leak water 

Asked by: Rt729
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this portable air conditioner. While it is normal for this machine to extract moisture from the air, and to collect it in its tank, it should not be leaking unless the drain cap is not secure. If this is not the case, then the unit may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at
