Question about Amcor 9,000 BTU AutoDrain NanoMax Portable Air Conditioner KF9000E
Bought an apparently reconditioned KF9000E unit and worked fine for season so bought a second....now each unit shuts off after a minute or so with a compressor light blinking. even if I disconnect the rear hoses. airflow is good, but why did both go bad so quickly? They were purchased from "Ollies Discount Barn".

I am having the same issue, the exhaust fan that blows the hot air out of the home is most likely not working. I am having a hard time finding a replacement fan motor

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.
