What is a Danby Air Conditioner?
Danby Air Conditioner is a brand of air conditioners that has been in business since 1937. The Danby Air Conditioner brand was created by the Acme Furnace Company.
Now the Danby brand is owned by Electrolux.
How Does a Danby Air Conditioner Work?
A Danby air conditioner consists of a compressor, condenser, evaporator, and an indoor fan. The fan blows air through the evaporator and condenser which cools the refrigerant liquid inside the condenser coils.
When this cool refrigerant reaches the required temperature it is discharged through the evaporator coil as warm moist air.
This hot moist air enters the indoor ductwork where it is blown out through a window or wall mounted vent. The cold moist air that was once discharged from the evaporator coil returns to fill in any space left by this warm moist air.
This cycle continues until all of the cool moist air has been exhausted from the system.
Features of Danby Air Conditioner
Danby air conditioners are known for their quiet operation.
The indoor fan is completely sealed in the cabinet and no ductwork is required to route the cool air through the house. This eliminates many of the problems associated with conventional systems, such as blocked ducts, damaged ductwork, and leaks.
Some Danby air conditioners also have a built-in humidifier that circulates moist air throughout the system.
Danby air conditioners also have a wider variety of features than other brands of air conditioners. These include the auto restart function.
A Danby air conditioner can automatically restart itself if it shuts down unexpectedly during use. It will resume cooling after 5 minutes if it is not restarted by a person pressing a button on the control panel or by setting it to manual mode.
How to Empty Danby Air Conditioner
The way to empty a Danby air conditioner is the same as for any other air conditioner.
- Turn off the power and drain the system.
- Then disconnect the drain hose from the condenser and drain it through a garden hose.
- Turn off the power to the condenser, drain hose, and evaporator coil.
- Disconnect the water supply line from the back of the condenser and let it drain until there is no more water coming out of it.
- Unplug any electric cord connected to the evaporator or compressor.
- Drain any remaining water in any lines attached to these components.
- Remove all hoses attached to these components as well as all hoses connected to them that are still attached by wrapping them with duct tape or electrical tape.
- Replace all filters, remove any belts that may be present, clean all connections,
- Then reinstall all hoses and hoses on components with duct tape or electrical tape.
- Then install a new water filter cartridge and tighten down any retaining nuts on connectors, hose clamps, or screws that attach these components together.
