Question about Comfort-Aire PC36-1K Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Corrosion Our unit is only two years old & is suffering from corrosion according to the service man.  My wife uses a lot of vinegar in the house to clean and wash clothes as she has allergies to all regular household products.  Could there be a connection between the two?

I have found this in some industrial shops that I work on the air cons at. That the acid in the air does actually eat away the coil. Althou she would have to be using alot to eat away the coil in two years. I would get hold of a warranty agent and see if they could get a second opinion.

If they give you the same story get a coil cote to protect the coil or your unit wont be lasting much longer. I am in australia and use a product called Kirby Kote that is about 40aus and works a treat.

Can anyone please tell me the best tenant screening service out there? I don't want complete screening services.....just the background reports and all; and don't even want to spend a lot?


'Not spending a lot' could cost you dearly. I read a great story in a magazine of a couple who went to live abroad for 2 years and left an agency to rent out there house. It was rented to a 'nice' man who said it was for his wife and son. What actually happened was that he added partition walls to various rooms and rented the house to 16 single students, some three to a room. The fire officer wasn't impressed.

How do you clean the coffee maker? My wife put vingar in it to clean and ran it through the coffee making process. Now...after running several cups of water through it we still have a vingar taste. ...


Lol! Your wife did the correct thing. (Hate to say it)Vinegar is acidic and eats away at all of the impurities that tap water leaves behind. To clear the vinegar, follow these instructions to a tee. Run one shot glass of bleach...yes bleach...through the unit. Follow this by two or three cycles of plain water. Your coffee will taste better than ever! And get this, bleach kills 99.999 percent of all bacteria known to man! Look it up! Hope this helps!

Jenn-air microwave dead


I'm afraid since Jenn Air has become a division of Whirlpool (along with numerous others) the quality has suffered.
I was going to suggest that you purchase a service manual for your unit so you could 'reset' it yourself. Service manuals can cost from $12-$40 US and in many cases obviate the need for 'professional' service calls. However, I couldn't find one offered for your model number so your only choices are to continue to pay for 'service' or examine the guts visually to see if you can locate any reset feature. This is what I would do.
When microwaves fail, older ones generally need a diode, a big capacitor or the magnetron replaced. Newer units are suffering power supply failures as many have moved from the reliable but less efficient 'linear' power supplies to 'switched mode' types that are more efficient but more complex and prone to failure. These later types usually have the word 'inverter' in the model description.

Press the handle release kick-button with your foot, extend the handle all of the way back, and take a look at the gap between the base of the unit and the handle/reseviour assembly. You should see several black hoses attached to the base and running up into the handle assembly. One of them (the dirty water return hose) might be cracked. Turns out that might be a common problem with this model. We had the same problem.

Judging by the interference between the vacuum hose and the "dirty water return" hose, there is NO WAY those two hoses can exist together in that housing without causing the dirty water return hose to stress. It certainly cannot last for many full bends of the handle.

We opted to not repair our unit, but you might be able to do it yourself for the cost of the part and several hours of your time. Otherwise, seek out your certified Hoover repair center for more info.

UPDATE: I McGuyverized it myself with a dremel cutoff tool, some vinyl tubing, some 2-part epoxy, and a lot of faith. It sure isn't pretty, but it sucks again. :)
