Hi, How old is the unit? Is there a warrenty on it. If so, anything you do to it may void the warrenty. First, check to make sure breaker on the end of the plug is not tripped. It will probably have a reset button on it. If it will not reset it can be replaced with a regular 110 plug if needed. (If this is a 110 unit) If you are talking about the control panel on the AC when you say control box I think you are getting into more than you can handle and not sure that what you ordered is even what you need. If you want to get into it, first make sure it is unplugged, Take off the front cover and slide the unit from the outer cover, there may need to be a few screws removed to do this. Look at the wiring and see if there is anything burned or loose. Other than this you would have to get a meter and talk with someone on here familiar with your particular unit to troubleshoot it. I really don't think you should order any parts before you find out what the problem is. If there isn't anything that you can see that's wrong with it I would suggest taking it to Sears and letting then determine if it would be better to fix it or replace it. Hope I have helped. kstfas

  1. Sears or any firm that sells a Unit has to have a chance to look at the problem and repiar it, if you installed it WRONG that is Bad ! Sears will not be responsible for damge to the Unit, bring it to them, you might have to leave it for days - better to have a serviceman come to the home - Units are covered for 90 days all but Electrical ( ???) You better have the bill of sale ( date purchased ( not installed !! )

Window a/c thermistor or control/circuite board replacement?


Still could be the fan capacitor. You cannot visually inspect a capacitor. It needs to be tested with a dvm. Beware capacitors store quite a bit of juice and although they probably won't cause permanent damage....the do hurt like hell when the discharge into you. You could try with the unit running spinning the fan manually BE CAREFUL. If it starts then the cap is probably bad. If not motor could be bad even if it spins ok.

Turn unit on and runs for about a minute , the whole time thermostatic touch control is dimming, at the time unit stops, the control the led temp indicators and touch led go almost completely out. Is it...


Typically if a transformer is bad, it will just short out and not give you any voltage (and or trip breaker, blow fuse), if its working intermittently and smelling, i'd be more suspicious of the control board and or the wiring to it.

Also anything that has a integrated control board in my experience will either function properly or act erratic. I'd be more suspicious of the board. Is the there customer service number on the unit you can call at all.

I work more on commercial refrigeration and AC units myself, not familiar with this brand.

My old Kenmore window unit has all of a sudden stopped working. Was working fine then just stopped coming on. The wall outlet checks out fine. Is there a re-set on the unit? What else can I check?


Hello, if the unit is receiving power check the capacitor, this is a round or oval can located inside the control panel of the Ac, it controls the fan and compressor operation.

After a recent power surge my kenmore ac window unit does not power on. what would be the most likely part affected ?


You can trace the mains supply line from the power plug to confirm . There is a possibility that the control circuit has failed or more likely the power to the circuit in case there is no display to the unit. If power comes but the AC does not switch over then the relay , the main compressor motor or the capacitor must be checked. use a clamp testor to find the input drawn current.

Power surge/Control Panel


The control board blew. You will need to replace the control board on your unit and everything will work correctly again. When a power surge happens it will blow the weakest link, and if your system is not on a protected outlet then the weakest link is your control board.

Unit will not turn on


I have two of these units (actually it is my sister and brother in law's) but they come to me to fix stuff.
Last year they came to me with this unit not working. No indication of power on the display. I diagnosed it down to the PWB Assmebly, Main. I believe they are referring to it as a Power printed circuit board (part #6871A20271A). The new board worked for about 4 months and then quit in the same manner. Also, the second unit quit in the same manner also indicating the circuit board is bad.
I don't want to throw a board at it till I know why they are burning out. Also, want to try to diagnose the board to component level ($33.28/board last year). Let me know if this helps if you have the same symptoms?
You can replace the board but my experience says it will only last for a short time till we find the real cause (Sears must know this problem exist).

Accidental short/spark - what part did i ruin?


YOU HAVE TOUCHED A HIGH VOLTAGE WIRE TO GROUND AS I READ YOR STATMENT. THAT WILL CAUSE A HIGH VOLTAGE BREAKER IN YOUR DISCONNECT OR MAIN PANEL TO TRIP. YOU CAN FIND CONTACTOR IN OUTDOOR AC MASH IT IN WITH AN INSULATED SCREWDRIVER AND SEE IF COMPRESSOR COMES ON . IF NOT YOU HAVE NO HIGH VOLTAGE TO UNIT FIND AND RESET BREAKER. or YOU CAN GO TO MAIN PANEL AND ALL DISCONNECTS AND CHECK FOR A TRIPPED BREAKER. REMEMBER MOST BREAKERS TRIP TO HALF POSITION, BUT CUTLER HAMMERS TRIP TO OFF POSITION. THE THERMOMSTAT CONTROLLED SWITCH IS CONTROLLED BY LOW VOLTAGE THAT TELLS IT WHAT TO DO, BUT THE WORKING POWER IS USUALLY HIGH VOLTAGE IF ANYTHING HUMS ETC YOU HAVE LOW CONTROIL VOLTAGE BUT IF CONTROLS CLOSE AND NOTHING HAPPENS YOU HAVE LOST A LEG OF POWER OR BOTH LEGS. LOCATE TEST AND RESET ALL SOURCES OF POWER ( HIGH VOLTAGE)

Does the 76129 Kenmore Air Conditioner have a reset button


There is no reset button on this unit that I have located. I don't think cleaning the filter will help since you could just set the unit to run without the filter.
