Question about Amana ACEX186E Wall/Window Air Conditioner

Open Question

Hi, we had a power surge which I am thinking fried the electrical on the unit. It is about 5 years old (I think). Do you think it is worth the money to repair it? We will probably get reimbursed from the electric co. when we make the claim, but wondering if should just get a new one. Thanks!

I would say to replace the motor. The only thing I would suggest is see where you have power and where you do not have power. If it is plugged into the wall outlet then you should have power going everywhere including the motor. If the motor has power and will not start up then replace it. But I would check EVERYTHING out and make ksure that it is the problem and nothing else is the problem

Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck to the inside of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.

The waveguide cover is usually about the size of a playing card and often held in place by a plastic rivet.

Sometimes it is in the ceiling of the oven.

It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!

The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.

If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart or Lowe's.

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

If it's not a waveguide problem, it may be a bad high voltage diode or loose high voltage wire inside.

FixYa's Web site is currently not notifying us when replies to our Clarification Requests are posted, so please reply directly to me with your full number from the tag on the unit and your oven's color so I can help you with free do-it-yourself tips or an estimate.

You have a tub seal that has leaked and the tub bearing has gotten wet and started to rust. This problem will continue to get worse and louder until the tub bearing falls apart. This is a major repair , the parts are not that expensive to replace, ( about $60.00 )but the labor involved is major. In some cases the washer is replaced for this problem. I also would not recommend you attempt this repair yourself. This job takes a professional about 3-5 hours, and sometimes the seal will leak again anyway. If you do decide to attempt this repair I will try to find you a detailed step by step guide. But, be prepaired to replace the machine if the repair fails. It is a major job. I know this is not what you wanted to hear, but its not a horse so shoot it and get another one. that would be my suggestion.

It could possibly be a fuse inside the unit that was blown. Does it turn on? any power going to it? In my opinion it is def. worth the fix. I know these bose units go for a lot of money. I believe it can be fixed. If you are looking to sell just post it on craigslist explaining the problem and sell for maybe about half the cost of what it is.

Hello,

It sounds like you either have a loose connection or the timer/control has failed. If the unit is in good condition it would be worth a repair visit.

If you want we can walk you through this repair you would save some bucks, a volt meter will be needed.

a power surge may have fried it if you don't have a breaker switch on the plug that you plug your power supply into. The only way to really determine is to connect your photo frame into a second power supply if you have one to see if it works. I found out the hard way to always have a circuit breaker for my computer units after a power out fried my computer hard drive.

The fusing unit doesn't heat up. If you had a power surge, chances are the thermistor might have gone out. It's an easy part to replace.
