Question about Soleus 10,000-BTU Portable Air Conditioner with Dehumidifier/Heater - MAC10

1 Answer

Heater will not work, trips the reset button constantly. No help from manufacturer.

This a new unit, 7/06.Air was a problem when it was to hot, manufacturer claims to much humidity, sold be a pump for next summer. Now the heat unit is constantly cutting off after fifteen minutes if I am lucky. Is there a chance these units are in need of recall. The one day the units heat system worked it was wonderful. The next day it started the constant shut offs, I push the reset, runs about 15 minutes or less, will not turn on without the reset. I am fearful this will cause a fire.

First of all I would make sure that you have it set up as instructed by the manufacturer guide or owners manual. If the plug is getting warm, replace the receptacle or try it in another outlet. Do not use an extension cord unless it is rated at the current that the unit is suppose to draw. If problem persist,contact Soleus International at contact@soleusair.com (888) 876-5387. They promise a 1 year warranty. http://www.soleusair.com/Consumer/index.htm If you are not satisfied with the unit and their warranty, contact the place you bought it from and try them. Report them to the BBB if still unsatisfied. Good luck. kstfas

How do I replace the heating elembent in a frigidaire FRAM18ER2A ac/heating UNIT


This type of unit does not normally have a heating element, it is a heat pump. In summer if blows cold air through the front and hot air out of the vent at the back. In winter, cool air is drawn in through the back, heated by the compressor and vented out of the front vents.

The manual is here. It seems Frigidaire Service is the only answer.
http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/Edison/2020219A0576en.pdf

Wiring diagram is here. The unmarked item, 2/3rds down on the left may be an element.

http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/Edison/202021990031.pdf

This intimates it has a 4000 watt to 4900 watt element depending on voltage supply.

Voltage Rating: 240V / 208V 60Hz
Amps (Cool): 8.4 / 9.2
Watts (Cool): 1900 / 1880
Amps (Heat): 22.2 / 20.0
Watts (Heat): 4900 / 4000
Horsepower (Cool): 2.49
Power Cord Length: 5' (6')
Plug Type: 6-30P

Despite my best searches I can't find anyone selling gthe element. Try these two companies though

Hi there... Our hot water cut out. We went into the heater and reset it, only has one reset button. The water worked for a minute and then it tripped out again. Has nothing to do with the breaker.


The unit's circuit breaker is there in case of internal faults in the uinit. The best option is to contact the dealer from whom you purchased it or the manufacturer.

Heat surge amish heater turns off and trips reset button


Do NOT use this unit as is!.
My experience is you have to pay to ship it for repairs and if out of warranty you should buy another heater. All electric heaters use the same power for the same heat unless its a heat pump, so save money and buy $30 WalMart heaters.

SOLEUS KFHHP-22 - Heater doesn't blow air at all, warm or cold. Cooling works great but no heat.


Doesn't matter how hot it was when installed, there still should have been proper start up performed. That means running unit thru all cycles and checking charge. If it was installed this summer then installer should warranty service to return and complete install properly.

New unit, try using in basement. nothing happen, should humidity settings be high or low? Dose humidity level be high? In the bucket whats the plastic cup about? do something alow water to enter bucket?


If you trying to remove humidity, the setting or percentage of humidity to you want to remove should be set low. it's actually the humidity that will be left in the air. In the Hot Summer months, you want lower humidity, as opposed to the Winter months, when you want higher humidity.

"Plastic cup inside the bucket" - that's got me stumped. But, I suspect, it may be a float valve to turn the unit off, once the bucket reaches the full level. The water enters the bucket through a drain tube or hole from inside the dehumidifier, above the bucket.

By best advice, since this is a new unit, that you recently purchased, is read the Owners Manual/User Guide and become thoroughly familiar with the proper operation of your Dehumidifier, as well as how to properly maintain it. As, they aren't maintenance free.

according to your problem, the power was cut to the house; then power was restored and everything went back on that was on except the hot water heater. when you tried to reset the water heater breaker, it wouldn't reset. the hot water heater also won't reset. the problem is not w/the breaker, the problem is w/the hot water heater. you need to buy a new reset for the hot water heater which means a new control unit, since the reset is hooked to the contol unit. this is answered by an electrician w/35 yrs experience. the breaker controls the hot water heater. since the breaker won't reset, the problem lies in the control unit for the hot water unit.

I installed a new water heater it has power to it but it is net heating up, is there a reset button if I tripped a breaker within the unit


First a question. Did you fill the water heater until water ran freely at the hot taps.
If not you may have had an air pocket and blown an element. Water heaters will
always be shipped with the ECO in the reset position. The reset is a RED button
located under the upper cover for the thermostat. Shut off breaker to water heater
and remove this cover, and the fiber glass, then push the reset. Replace the fiberglas
and the cover securely and turn on power. You should actually hear the heater in most
cases. Remember that it takes about 45 minutes for a full tank of hot water from startup.

I no hot water coming out. Have power to water heater.


Electric water heater is not making hot water.

That gives 4 suspects.

1) Breaker is not delivering 240V to water heater on both legs.
Open following link for checklist troubleshoot.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Test-electricity-to-water-heater.html

2) Upper thermostat ECO reset button has tripped. Open top cover and push in reset button. Put insulation and cover back so thermostat not exposed to cooler air. If problem persists, replace both thermostats.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermostat-on-electric-water-heater.html

3) Upper element is bad. If upper element goes bad, the tank will not have any hot water, even if lower element is good.

Yes, you get a lot of water from the condensate that accumulates on the air handler finns. My house unit during the summer generates a gallon in two hours during the hot summer months. The water run off is dependent on the humidity.
