Question about Kenmore 73189 Air Conditioner
Hello, AC was working fine. All of a sudden it died. We checked that there is power to the unit. We've ordered a new control box. Do you think replacing this would fix the problem? Also, do you know how hard a task replacing the control box is?
Hi, How old is the unit? Is there a warrenty on it. If so, anything you do to it may void the warrenty. First, check to make sure breaker on the end of the plug is not tripped. It will probably have a reset button on it. If it will not reset it can be replaced with a regular 110 plug if needed. (If this is a 110 unit) If you are talking about the control panel on the AC when you say control box I think you are getting into more than you can handle and not sure that what you ordered is even what you need. If you want to get into it, first make sure it is unplugged, Take off the front cover and slide the unit from the outer cover, there may need to be a few screws removed to do this. Look at the wiring and see if there is anything burned or loose. Other than this you would have to get a meter and talk with someone on here familiar with your particular unit to troubleshoot it. I really don't think you should order any parts before you find out what the problem is. If there isn't anything that you can see that's wrong with it I would suggest taking it to Sears and letting then determine if it would be better to fix it or replace it. Hope I have helped. kstfas
