Emergency Condensate Holding Tank
When the room temperature is low and the indoor humidity is high, the air conditioner may not be able to
evaporate some of the moisture fast enough. When this happens, the water will accumulate in an emergency
condensate tank inside the unit. Once the emergency condensate tank is full, the unit will automatically shut
off and the “
” will appear on the control panel display. To empty the condensate tank, pull the drain plug
at the bottom back of the unit. You will need a small pan, approximately 1” high to catch the water coming out
of the condensate tank. Once the condensate tank is drained, the unit will begin working within a few minutes.
The emergency condensate tank is approximately 1.5 Liters of water. Another option is to purchase a small
hose from a hardware store that can fit around the 5/8” drain plug on the back of the unit and drain the unit into
a gravity drain or larger pan for continuous drainage. It is not advised to use continuous drainage when the
°
room temperature is higher than 90 F .
