Question about Whirlpool Heating & Cooling

Open Question

Window a/c only cools for a short time then it blows warm air.

A/c is a whirlpool model ACM122XHO. I have the fan control on low cool and the thermostat on "5". I've tried a/c on hi cool and it does the same thing. I can hear the compressor sort of shaking then it goes off before cooling sufficiently.

SOURCE: Cool air when running; warm air when compressor is off.

It sounds as if warm outside air is being drawn back into the room when the unit is not actively cooling. Portable units depend on room air to carry the heat outside, & therefore will not work properly if the room is too airtight. Provide a makeup air passage by leaving the door slightly open, & see if this helps. Use a room thermometer to see if your desired temperature is being reached. Note that if the wind is strong & coming from the wrong direction, it may not be possible to prevent warm air drawback.

SOURCE: Blowing hot air, compressor not kicking on, just fan ? ?

are you speaking of the outside fan or inside? compressor should be a little warm but not boiling hot. the unit could be low on freon. if low it will run a while but the compressor will overheat and shut off leaving the fan running by itself ouside. if nothing outside is running check power. if you have power check the contacted outside to make sure it's pulled in. contacters are bad about going out on goodman untis. Also ants can get under contacts.

SOURCE: Will not cool properly.

You have either a faulty thermostat, dirty condenser and evaporator or a faulty run capacitor. Need to service soon before the compressor is damaged. Sea Breeze

Top section of my side by side kitchen aid frodge stop cooling bottom is still cooling and freezer still working


send the model number?if the freezer is cold but in fridge the top is warm and the bottom is cold it sounds like you have a bad evaporator fan motor,all it does is cold starts in the freezer at the evaporator coil,and the evap fan blows the cold air into the fridge section,warm air rises so if the fan isn't working the cold air will stay down low and the warm air will stay up on top,open the freezer door,if you don't hear the fan blowing in the freezer i would have to say the evap fan motor is bad,if the fan is working one of the doors could have been left open and the air ducts froze up or you could have a damper in your model,it's just a door that opens and closes to let the air blow in but send the model number so whoever helps you can look up your fridge,usually the model number for a sxs is in the fridge section open the fridge door look up on the right hand wall up near the ceiling or in the middle of ceiling and there should be a tag with model and serial numbers just send the model number,

Whirlpool cooling fan will not turn off ovens


There is a thermostat usually on the top or back of the oven which controls the cooling fan. When it cools down, the fan is supposed to turn off. I would say this thermostat has failed. Locate the thermostat and if its cool, the thermostat should be open circuit. If not, you will need a new one. Most spare parts centres should carry these. A generic or common oven cooling fan thermos will suffice if you cant get the genuine one. make sure the oven is off at the wall or the fuse box before you go into it.

Whirlpool built-in electric single oven makes a whining noise after it is turned off?


Most of them are equipped with a cooling fan designed to keep the controls from melting... Once it is warmed up, the fan runs until the fan thermostat cools enough to power it off... Cooling Fan W10127321

Frigidaire AC window unit, model fam185r2a (18,500 BTU) only cools for a few minutes before it cycles off and just fan blows. Then a few min later cool air cycles back on. Is this a thermostat issue?


The window units normally have a sensor thats attached to the front of the indoor coil. This controls the thermostat. I usually pull this sensor away from the coil because it stops cooling before the room is cool. It is attached to the cold coil so it senses the coil temp, not the room temp. You can normally see it when you remove the air filter. Don't break it! It may be a wire or small copper tube

Freezer doesn't cool to 0 even though it's set at -5


There is a fan that blows air past the coils in the freezer. Either the fan is not working or the coils are blocked with ice. Sometime ice stops the fan from turning. listen for the fan spinning by turning the thermostat down. Defrost the coils and fan and see if the frig returns to normal. Sometimes the drain tube is clogged causing ice buildup.

I have a whirlpool wall heat/ac unit, model ACE184XL0. All of a sudden, the heat quit working. Fan still blows, and AC still seems to work, although I can't tell if it's just pulling in cold outside air...


Dear it is a thermostat system. You can simply check it by setting temp at 30 then check either warm air is coming or cool air. at this time warm air should come. If warm air is not coming means there is a fault is realy in your pcb. It can be simply remove no need to worry.

Control fuse keeps blowing on a htg/cooling call


There is a short somwhere in the low voltage circuit. Test the continuity of the remaindimg wires to ground, you should have no resistance, if you do have resistane the wire will have to be replaced. Also, the thermostat can have an internal short which can cause the fuse to blow.

NEED TO WIRE A OIL FURNACE FAN FOR LOW SPEED IN HEAT AND HIGH SPEED IN COOL


Okay, I've got an answer for you.

If you get a Fan Control Relay that is DPDT, I think you can wire the Low Speed of a two-speed motor to the first N.O. contact, for Heat.

When the Relay trips, the N.O. contact will close, and the fan will run on low.

If it's a two-speed fan, these fans have two windings, the first for low, the second for medium, and both for High.

Wire both windings to the N.C. contact on the second half of the relay.

That way when the temperature drops below your setpoint, both fan windings will be energized and the fan will go nuts.

Of course, this means the fan will NEVER shut off.

And I still don't know why you need high speed in the Cool setting, when your thermostat isn't kicking the Relay.
