Worked great until it didn't

Comments about Sharp 13,000 BTU Windowless Portable Air Conditioner:
Who thought a Sharp product would require an extended warranty? After 21 months of reliable usage, the unit stopped blowing cold air. Contacted Sharp and followed the reset procedures, but no luck.It's an attractive appliance that handled the cooling requirements for a small server room. Had only one instance of accumulated water that required emptying. But generally, water (vapor) was eliminated through the exhaust vent. I'm on the South side of Long Island where there's no shortage of humidity.I regret having to make this post, but buyers beware.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I want to buy two more
from New York City, New York
I bought this item for my daughter's bedroom and I am completely satisfied. I was looking for a quite product and tried with two other brands but they couldn't compare with this product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Haven't had a problem in 2 years
from Somerville, NJ
I've had this unit for the last two summers. I am going to buy a second unit. I have never had a problem. Cools a larger room at the top of the house. Never had to empty any water no matter how humid the conditions.

This unit looks good, cools well and it is nice and quiet. However, we ran it the first night to test it, and in low humidity in 68 degree weather, with the fan speed on "auto" and only asking for 69 degree air, it shut off after about 3 hours of use because it was full of water! Called customer service at Sharp, and they recommended I try again - we did, and had the same results the second night. The unit weighs about 100lbs when empty, more when full. As the instruction manual says, you have to empty "outside, or, in a room with a drain in the floor." That's because the drain plug is at the base of the unit and you can't even fit a cookie sheet under it - LOTS of water flows out. Don't buy this if you need to sleep more than 3 hours or if you are not capable of getting 120 lbs down stairs, your stoop, or outside somehow. Sharp has no solution to the problem, and after two days of calling and being on the phone over an hour each time, we have no choice but to bring this unit back and look for another cooling solution. We tried to work with Sharp's customer service, but they said that the unit filling with water and shutting off every three hours was "not unusual and did not indicate any problem with the unit" (HUH??? It's advertised as SELF EVAPORATING AND BUCKETLESS!!)
