Customer Reviews

Danby 5000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from What to do if I do not have the remote control My landlord just gave this AC to me for this summer. It is running great, the problem is that my landlord lost the remote control and besides turning on and off, I can't set the temperature nor mode. If anyone knows where can I buy the remote for this? Or would the universal remote control work for this? Thanks

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bien correct. Le climatiseur portable est beaucoup moins performant qu'un climatiseur fixe. De plus, ça aurait été agréable de ne pas avoir cette lumière très dérangeante pour la nuit dans une chambre. Elle n'était pas nécessaire. Aussi, si on perd ou brise la télécommande, il n'y a plus moyen de changer les options. Vraiment pas pratique.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic alternative when living in an apt! This machine, even at 5000 btu is so efficient, with it's built in digital thermostat it can keep my 950 sq foot apt cool really nicely, and you can hardly hear it!~ It's very very quiet.; I am moving to a place with central air, so I have only has this for a month, but wow, what a great to heaving the A/C up into an apt window and trying to find plywood to cover the hole above the windowed A/C...... Not with this Danby! It's fantastic!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Couldn't cool a closet!!!! When I bought the product I knew I wouldn't be cooling down my whole house but I liked the idea of being able to move it from room to room. I did however expect it to keep my bedroom cool for sleeping witch it DOES NOT!! My $99 window ac does a far better job. Save your money folks!

When selected, this automatically sets the appropriate option for your room based on the ambient temperature. For example, if it is 15°C outside, the unit would flip to fan mode. If it is set to 30°C, the unit would revert back to cooling mode.
On most models with heat mode, it is advised to use the hose for direct drain. This will ensure the pan does not fill up too quickly.
No, this is not recommended. Please bring your AC unit indoors during the winter months.
Dual hose models have an intake and exhaust hose. With single hose models, the hose exhausts and the air that is to be “conditioned” is taken in from the room through the unit.
Units with three drainage ports are units which also feature heat mode. The bottom drainage port empties the internal pan, the middle port is for continuous drain during heat and the top port is for continuous drain during dry mode. Please consult your owner’s manual for more detail.
This is not recommended, as the unit is built to operate using the drain hose/power cord provided.
During heat mode, dry mode or continuous draining. Please consult your owner’s manuals for more details.
You should always use it during cooling and heating. It is not required during fan and dry mode. Please consult your owner’s manuals for more details.
The water drains from the drainage port. If you are not using the continuous drain, the internal pan drains from the bottom outlet. Consult your owner’s manual for more information.
