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.

Re: Heater will not work, trips the reset button...

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 (888) 876-5387. They promise a 1 year warranty. 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

The heater won't heat in my window unit.

Hello Jim Hyde - Try pressing the reset button on the plug, if you haven't so already. If the unit continues to not heat up, contact a professional that works with your manufacturer to move forward accurately. Keep in mind that for some air conditioners the heating option is simply a supplement to help heat up a room but in most cases it will not completely heat up the entire room.

Where is the reset button on my ruud acheiver 90 airconditioner?

Should be a small button on the outside unit close to where the tubing is welded on the unit. This is a high pressure switch that trips if the unit gets hot , so be sure and check the coil for dirt , etc. The fan pulls air through the coil. If the outside of the coil is dirty it will trip the high pressure switch. Look under the fins, you will see the outside of the coil.

A leak inside the water heater may be dripping on to the wires. This can be very dangerous and you may want to get the help of a professional.
Make sure the power is off before you remove the element covers, and remember MOST BREAKERS ARE MARKED WRONG, do not trust that they are marked correctly this can cost you your life.

Maytag ac trips at plug constantly

first, get your money back or get a replacement for no charge. now, when you reset it, are you resetting the circuit breaker? if so, then first try another appliance that will demand near the same current as yours (~7-8 amps). if breaker does trip, check your house wiring. if not, then your unit's compressor motor is demanding too much current (assuming you have a 15A or 20A breaker)-not a pretty fix here. look for another unit
