Sounds like you have a hole in the tubing somewhere within the unit. You will need to remove it and take it outdoors and start it up to trace where the water is coming from.

Unit will not power on; is there a reset button?


I just bought a Evaporative Air Cooler SF-614P.
It worked great now zip
I bought it on eBay, but I wanted to get a air conditioning unit.
The seller sent me not a shipping label, but insisted it was.
eBay stepped in saw said Shipping label, and agreed it was not one.
He gives me a refund after many weeks of asking him for a shipping label, but he just keeps asking for more time.

OK so I called the company and tell them it doesn't work.
They said well you got a refund. It was only due to his not providing a shipping label.

Then he says "JUST KEEP IT "!!!! HE WAS MAD.
I am going to make them honor the qaurentee.
Also they say I have to get a box, and pay for the shipping label.
Company's name "Sun Penton
Ph# 800-330 -0388.

I think is from another country, but they hide behind City of Industry, CA 9745

I have a Taiwan evaporated cooler, 120 vac 60 Hz 85 w. Does this unit cost a lot of electricity to run, or is it fairly energy efficient


evaporative coolers use a principle of blowing air though a filter that is water moist
the air passing through the water uses a heat exchange process as the water boils off, the air is cooled and so you get cooler air
very efficient in places where the humidity is under 80% but over that the water doesn't evaporate all that readily and so the effectiveness is reduced
basically the hotter the day and the lower the humidity the more efficient they are.
Cheap --yes as it only runs a small motor for the fan and an even smaller motor for the water pump, but you will need a regular water supply some units have a small tank which needs regular filling and others can be connected to the home water supply
it is not an air conditioner , simply an air cooler.

What causes a water cooler to freeze up around coils?


Hi,

It is dues to improper air flow. which can be caused by multiple factors.
1. Return Air Vent is blocked
2. Evaporator Fan not working
3. Improper Thermostat.
Is the water cooling Ok. if the thermostat is not ok, the water might be really freezing.

Sunpentown Air Cooler SF-608R


When you say filled with ice/ water, is it just an evaporative cooler? in which case it is really only a fan. If it is a proper a/c unit, try emptying the bin you have filled up and try again. Most a/c units have a water bin that fills and switches off the unit by a float switch until you empty it and it runs again. Let me know how you get on!

Tipped over while full of water. will it run after it dries out?


Make sure its fully dry before you go plugging it back in. A few days should be OK. If unsure , get a sparky to megger it just in case. If you have an RCD in your house, it will trip if there is anything electrically wrong. Provided there has been no mechanical damage, you should be right.

I have an evaporative cooler: vulcan bonaire. the only control buttons which appear to be useful are: on/off, cool in the 'appliance' window, and cool in the 'mode' window. i have a feeling that this is...


Hi and welcome to FixYa. The principle of operation of an evaporative cooler is to provide cooler air via evaporation. The evaporation process is achieved by water being pumped over very porous pads with air is drawn through the pads. Most all evaporative coolers unless connected with a centralized heat / cool system only have an on / off & cool function. "On" is fan only (air circulation while using outside air being drawn into the home) and "cool" turns on the pump to pump water over the pads for evaporative cooling. Hopefully I did not confuse you with my answer.

Happy New Year and thanks for choosing FixYa,

Air coming out of an adobeair portable evap cooler isnt cold


paula298,
A new unit will take a while for the pad to become wet and more efficient. Remember, there may be two switches: fan and water pump. The unit must be full of water and the pump ON to work correctly.

If the unit has a water pump only setting, run the pump without the fan for about 20 minutes. That will get the pads nice and wet and you should get a good result. A rule of thumb in the desert is 20 to 25 degrees of cooling compared to the ambient air.

Don't use a cooler in closed area. The cooler will simply act like a room humidifier. Use in an open garage or porch for the best result.

I hope that helps.

Evap Cooler motor not cutting in


Look for a reset switch on the unit, press it and try again.

If there is no reset switch, unplug the unit entirely if possible, wait a minute and plug it back in.

Sometimes electronics get confused and need to start over. Let us know if that works.

Sunpentown SF-609 Evaporative Air Cooler - no cool air


Sometimes there is a separate switch to turn on the water pump. No water=no cooling. Check to make sure the cooling pads are wet! If they are completely wet and the fan is blowing it should cool.
