Question about Sunpentown WA-1210E Air Conditioner

1 Answer

My unit turns off by itsself

Recently my a/c shuts off after being on for about 7 hours. We like it really cold, so we use it on high at the lowest temp. It shuts off and the power button blinks and we can't turn it back on. Yesterday we drained it and it started right back up again....... is this the problem? We've never had to drain it like this before...... maybe once in awhile but not everyday.

Probably is the problem. These units have a float switch in them and won't run if they fill up to protect your floor. What you can do is connect a tubing to the drain pan and either drain it out side or into a larger container. Hope this helps 2rns4u <*{{{>(

My freezer isn't cold enough. Are the higher numbers on the thermostat dial colder or are the low numbers colder? See full question below.


Hi, If I remember correctly, make sure the freezer control is set to on, otherwise neither will cool.
You need to give it 24hr for temp to settle, then check to see if freezer temperature is 0? to 2? F (-17? to -16? C).
Turn control to next highest number if too warm.
Turn control to next lowest number if too cold.
Allow 5 to 8 hours for adjustments to take effect.
Check to see that fresh food section is 38? to 40? F (3? to 4? C).
Turn control to next highest number if too warm.
Turn control to next lowest number if too cold


Hope this helps

The ac compressor in my 2006 Chevrolet Silverado turns on and off while parked. It's blows really cold air while driving, but blows hot and cold air while parked. To hot to sit in truck while parked. ...


the problem is not the compressor but the head pressure is to high and the high pressure switch is shutting it off
You say really cold while driving but on/off when stationary
That indicates that the fan in front of the condenser is not working and the high pressure gas is not converting back to liquid
2 possible items to check
fan--fan relay fan relay fuse
and excessive gas in the system
take it to an accredited ac specialist shop and have the pressures checked
At this point I am thinking excessive gas

I have a 2006 Gulfstream Cavalier 8'x 32' Fema Travel Trailer with a Dometic Duo Therm AC unit which I have recently replaced the fan motor on. Had the dealership bench test motor prior to lea


There is ice forming on the evaporator coils. This is either from a low freon charge or a leak in the seals or windows and doors. Could also be that the drains are not working and water is building up and freezing

AC compressor cuts off and on every minute or so.


The voltage thing is a normal for high ampere appliance and well within its design. However coming on for a short time and cutting off indicates a compressor running out of spec. Too high or low pressure. On a very humid period of several hours a unit too small for the cooling need can freeze over on the inside coil. Shutoff the unit for several hours to allow thawing. If in the 7 years of use the unit hasn't been dismounted and serviced there could be dirt and debris clogging the inside or outside coils. These finned coils are are aluminium and easily bent. If enough surface area is restricted by damage a repair may not be possible.

Hot water is too hot. Setting is at lowest setting. Just above vacation.


Sounds like the temp sensor might be bad or getting ready to go bad. there really is no way that I can test it online for you . But I am prestty certain it going bad.. there is one thing you can try though. .. trun it up to high and leave it there for a bit a minute or so then turn it down and see if it shuts off. then wait 24 hours and see what happens .. Wish it was easy for you but its all I can do really Let me know Jon

My dehumidifier compressor runs and then shuts off, then runs and shuts off, continuously. The fan continues to run. It seems to be pulling water, though it's hard to tell how much because I have a...


Part of the problem may be that you have the humidity level set to high. The fan runs constantly to move the air around. When the unit senses a humidity level higher than what you have it set for, the compressor turns ON. Once it's ON, if the humidity level is short lived, it turns OFF.

Try setting the humidity level to the lowest possible setting. Usually, that 45%. If the humidity level in you home is higher than that, the compressor should turn ON and run until either the bucket is full or the humidity level reaches 45%. If this doesn't solve the problem, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet for 12-15 minutes. Plug the unit bakc in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set the humidity level at it's lowest setting. Allow the unit to run until it cuts OFF and check the bucket for water. Hopefully that 12-15 minute time out allowed the unit to reset itself.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Nno much water generated


Hello,

First, make sure the humidistat isn't set too high by adjusting it to the lowest humidity setting and running it again.

Next, test the dehumidifier by placing it in a closed bathroom with a hot shower running. If you don't see water collecting in the unit after several minutes, turn the unit off and clean all dehumidifier filters and coils. If, after adjusting the settings and cleaning the unit, you still don't see water collecting, you may have a refrigeration issue.

Take care.

AC only works on low speeds and shuts off Compressor on 3 and 4?


YOUR BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. IT IS LOCATED IN THE AIR DUCT NEAR THE BLOWER MOTOR. I BELIEVE IT HAS THREE WIRES ON THE PLUG THAT SUPPLIES POWER TO IT. REPLACE THIS AND YOUR A/C WILL WORK AT ALL SPEEDS. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK. P.S.
:RESISTOR SHOULD BE UNDER 40 DOLLARS TO BUY.
