Air conditioner suddenly not working

Hi..Kenmore 74125 just suddenly not working . The lights are on, and it sounds like it is trying to work, then nothing happens and it gets very quiet. Kind of buzzes, like something is trying to happen, but then...nothing. It is only a couple of years old. The filter is clean, the temp. tube thing isn't touching anything, just can't figure out what the problem is.Tired unplugging for a while, then tried leaving it off for a while, nothing seems to work.

Sounds like the compressor has frozen up, either by actual freezing or by needed lubricant. try to verify that it turns. if you have to, try this: power off, open it, attach separate wall cord to 2 wires entering compressor motor. did it turn?

I don't know why it is not cooling my room?

Refrigerant leaked out? When did it last work properly? Did it suddenly stop cooling, or gradually over time?

Air conditioner was working great suddenly STOPPED working...cant turn it back on.

Is there a reset button located near the plug? If so reset it.

Check your circut breaker for the outlet its plugged into also.

If your using a remote to start this unit check that the battery is good in the remote,it may only work with a remote.

Re: Kenmore Plasmaire air conditioner; suddenly stopped working during night. Motor will initially turn on but no air coming through, then will stop

Most likely you have a bad fan,did you have a storm or lighting strike or power drop / outage .
These type of things can cause trouble with a weak electrical part - not know the age of the Unit - you claim it happen in the middle of the night - if the fan Humms and cut outit could be a cap. that helps you fan start - but the fan is damaged if it tryed to start time and time again . Call service if the unit is worth it .

My Kenmore air conditioner will start to work fine for about ten.

If your air conditioner is freezing up it's either a dirty filter, coil or it's low on Refrigerant.

Does the 76129 Kenmore Air Conditioner have a reset button

There is no reset button on this unit that I have located. I don't think cleaning the filter will help since you could just set the unit to run without the filter.
