Question about Amana PTH123B25AJ Heat Pump Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Outside unit freezing over

We have an Amana 14,000 btu unit Model # PTH153B35AM heatpump/AC unit. It was purchased new and installed last year. We have it heating a 700 square feet cabin. The outdoor temp. was in the teens. The outside unit is freezing over. The unit is still putting out heat but runs constantly. Just concerned why it is freezing over outside and what we can do to prevent this from happening.

Take the surge supressor off the unit, or it better be a good one, and its best not to have it plugged into any thing, just straight into the plug in, and your unit is 14,000 btus

I am getting alot of water leaking out of the unit.


I live with my husband and three sons in a house that we almost never succeed in cooling enough every summer. But a few months back, my uncle mentioned that he had recently purchased a new model of air conditioner by Plasma Cool called Plasma Cool Portable PC-14E that required no draining and came equipped with technology to remove most of the humidity from the air. We checked this ac out at his home, and the next thing we did was researched all the no drain acs with evaporative booster out there in the market to see if there was anything better than the one my uncle had. But the only one that met our needs and budget was Plasma Cool Portable PC-14E. At 14,000 BTU, this ac is 40-50% more powerful than similar acs in the market and covers upto 500 sq. ft. Look for this product on www.plasmacoolportableac.com which lays out the features and specifications in easy and comprehensible fashion without coming across as trying too hard to sell you the product. We just finished the 30 day trial period, and now own the ac. We are very satisfied and are considering purchasing another unit soon.

2 Air Conditioner Problems


Whinny noise is probably motor which needs some motor machine oil (hardware store).

Freezing is probably caused by bad de-icing switch or poorly insulated de-icing switch.

If you want to further pursue, let me know.

Moldy smell to air


I have a maytag ac unit that kept smelling moldy. We tried spraying with antifungal, only helped for a short time. I took the unit (ac unit slides out of window case) outside and carefully removed screws only to discover the fan was covered in mold!!!! Oh my what a horrible discovery! I washed the fan blades with bleach and water mix. I completely and carefully washed and wiped down the air conditioner careful around the control box. Then I let the unit sit outside in the sun untill completel dry. Good bye mold and fresh clean cool ac!! I will do this each year now that I saw that ugly mold!! That is definetly a health hazard! I would reccommend you either thouroughly clean your unit or pay someone to do it or get a new unit right away!! Don't use that moldy unit another day!! Good Luck!
