Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

This Kenmore AC is probably dead

I just want a confirmation before I go trying to get money and arrange an installation.

Kenmore AC, 8000 BTU wall-mount. Any time I turn it up past ''Fan'' it makes the infamous ''funny noise'' and pops the breaker for its outlet.

I need a new one, right ?

    You might be right but if you have a multi meter you can check the compressor out to be sure. Let me know I can walk you through the check out. ken

With a Kenmore 8000 BTU ac window unit there is a green wire that runs from underneath the control panel. Where does that go?


Most of the time a green wire is a ground and should be attached to the metal frame using a existing screw or a self tapping sheet metal screw. Thank you.

My landlord installed this brand new out of the box. Our apt is 900 sq ft tops. This unit can't even cool down our living room and kitchen. If the whole 2 bedroom apt is 900 sq ft, you can imagine how...


The AC your landlord installed is rated at 8000 btu which is way too small for 900 sq ft. You need at least a 15000 Btu Air conditioner and a 'well insulated' house to be cool.
A good rule of thumb in the AC business says you need 1 ton (12000 btu) of Air conditioning for every 600 sq feet (if the house is well insulated) - if not - then you will need 1 ton (12000 btu) for every 400 sq feet.
So, if you have 900 sq feet and the house is well insulated you should have at least a 15000 btu unit.
If it's not well insulated you will need 24,000 btu.

I have a single room 8000 btu kennmore air conditoner was making loud squealing noise when compressor kicks on and now it makes no noise and does not cool at all please help


sounds like the compressor may have died on you. the compressor isnt running you might as well trash it sorry for the bad news but it probably isnt worth trying to replace a compressor in a system like that it would drive you crazy and take forever if it could even be done.

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.
