Your Amcor unit has been plagued with problems, which Amcor recognizes, but short of telling the consumer to return it for a refund, does little else, as far as repair is concerned..

The problem you're having is a common one for your model. The automatic full device has failed and the water collected in the condensation pan overflowed and wound up staining the ceiling below. If the Exhaust hose is not positioned properly (no kinks or downward bends) , most of the condensation should be evacuated out thru the exhaust duct. However, if it's extremely humid, the condensation goes into the collection pan and supposedly evaporates fairly quickly.

There are a couple of things you can do, to resolve this:

Depending on how long you've had the unit (it carries a 1 year Warranty) and still have your proof of purchase, you can return it for repair or replacement (at Amcore's option).

Pay for having the sensor replaced and repaired by Amcore or their designated repair center. Or order the part and replace it yourself.

Check and drain the condensation pan regularly. Which may be inconvenient, but cost nothing.

Raise the unit about 2 feet off the floor onto something really sturdy (the unit is heavy), attach a hose to the drain hole on the back lower left of the unit and drain the water into a 5 gallon bucket. Depending on how much and how cool you run the unit, the 5 gallon bucket would be good for 24 hours, before needing to be emptied.

Whichever step you decide to take, is yours to make. However, just to be on the safe side, if your unit is still in warranty. I would start with Amcor, first.

I hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

KF9000e. Why does compressor cycle at short intervals?

Yes. due to low rpm of fan motor in the condensor copil. or dirty condensor coil. I If so, replace fan capacitor.
If all good, check the seating of condensor set. It needs minimum 2mtrs open space for air throw. If not due to overheat compressor gets short cycling on and off.

Where can I buy the Amcor kf9000e power circuit board controller?

Hello there.
You really need to get the Power board Model number if you can read it off the board. Then try putting that number and the words 'power module' in to your search engine. Sometimes people carry spares by board numbers. alone.
From what I can tell , it looks like one of the only places to get parts for this are on Ebay.
How about Amcor themselves if you are in USA ? Worth a phone call.

My unit keeps fluxuatng between cold air, then warmer air. It will start cooling then the unit seems to dim then amp back up sending out non cooled air.

Your compressor is drawing locked rotor amps. If the unit dims and then turns off a few seconds later, your compressor is going out on the internal thermal overloads. It could be a bad start capasiter or bad winding in the compressor. If you don't know electricity, it is not something I would recomend a DIY to fix.
