Question about EdgeStar AP10000HW Portable Air Conditioner

Open Question

Edgestar AP10000 Portable AC Won't heat or cool.

I have had this air conditioning unit for nearly half a year now. When I first got it at the beginning of summer, it wouldn't ever put out cool air. I decided to bring it back out for fall/winter, but it turns out that the thing won't heat, either. Could it be due to the exhaust hose? Due to the placement of a desk, the hose is bent at an odd angle to reach the window. It's still blowing air out of the hose, I know it has to be because it blew a bunch of leaves off of my window sill when I first turned it on. Anyone have any ideas?

This could apply to at least one of your units. Apparently these models have had some trouble with the compressor capacitor wires coming loose. If they're barely touching they could cause the compressor to run intermittently and possibly overheat. The compressor runs in heating and cooling mode.

How far from floor should exhaust hose hole be made edgestar 12000


makes no difference, as long as the ducting is not kinked.
keep in mind heat rises
so obviously if you could dump the heat elsewhere, away from the area you are cooling, then it would not creep back up through the floor. If your flooring is well insulated it will not matter.

Yes, you need it to be hooked up in the winter also. If you don't have it hooked up then you are heating , and cooling the room at the same time.

Cooling on and off


Behind the filter there should be a small metal tube that senses the temp. entering the unit sometime this is too close to the metal fins and sense the cold from the fins and not the air coming in. Make sure this is away from the fins and try a different temp. setting.And relocating the unit. These units tend to give off more heat that cooling because the hot air is returned to the inside of the room and not vented outside like window units.This is an  EdgeStar 12,000 BTU unit, correct?
