Question about Emerson Quiet Kool 10MW42K Air Conditioner

Emerson quiet cool

I have and 18K BTU wall unit. It worked fine for years. Yesterday it worked as normal. Today when we turned the fan on it hummed. when we turned the knob to low A/C it hummed louder. I checked the fan/motor shaft and it turns freely and there appears to be nothing wrong. What's the problem, the Cap, the main power knob? Help.

Re: emerson quiet cool

A real hummer. humm can be the sound of a short.but it sounds since u did only turn the fan on it hummed ...fanns are blower motors in acs the motor I bet ate it and needs a new one no way of fixing the motor but most are easy and cheap to replace...go or call an ac applance man ...see if he got a good used one for you or go the manufacture take model make serial no. sometimes u can spin the fan while on and it takes off again...this is dangerous so use a plastic long something but will dy again after u turn it off. good luck.

What would cause my emerson quiet kool air conditioner 10GC13-L to keep tripping the breaker?

It probably has something shorted to ground or the compressor or motors are stuck causing a high amperage problem. The breaker is probably fine but it also could be weak but normally its the compressor or a component has faulted to the compressor. If the unit immediately trips breaker its probably shorted to ground. If the unit struggles to start and a few seconds pass before it trips then it may be a component fault.

I have a Emerson Quiet Kool Model # 12JW42K that is 13 years old. It doesn't seem to cool the apt. anymore. I assume that it would be smarter to get a new "energy saving" unit than invest in...

I know that a Island Air units come in all shapes and sizes and they make a ton of different units. They are made in new york thats who I would use. I would definitly go with the 12,000 btu unit 500 square feet needs 12,000 btus 10,000 is under sized. 500 square feet divided by 500 = 1 ton of cooling. let me know if I can further assist.

Lately at certain times while running for days it makes a clanking noise(sounds like the fan) I spray water through the back of it with a water bottle and after 20 min the sound slowly go's away.It is...

This is normal, the noise you here is most likely ice build up on the condenser coils. when the outside temperature is under around 15c ice will build up on the condenser coils it then falls and hits the fan blades. this will also happen if the unit has been running for a while. there is no need to spay water into the unit as this can cause damage to the electrical components.

Emerson quiet kool wall air conditioner. Should vent be open to remove humidity?

No - opening the vent will allow unconditioned outside air into the space and add to the humidity load.

Think of it like your car's A/C - when you put the controls to "Max A/C" the system recycles just the air inside the car and doesn't use any outside air. When the control is set to normal A/C, some outside (fresh) air is brought in.

The same thing is true for a window A/C unit. Keeping the vent closed will help the unit de-humidify and cool the air more quickly.

Emerson Air Conditioner #10HW42K through wall

First off, my model # is Emerson Quiet Kool 10HW42K. No it is not yet solved, however I am reaching out to a number of sources. Was hoping to get a simple answer since it is not a "repair" problem, but rather a "replacement problem". I am looking for another AC that will fit the original sleeve.
