Im not sure what type of unit you are speaking about but in general a window airconditioner unit will have an exhaust button. This button generally opens a small door that allows a small ammount of fresh air to mix with the conditioned air from the room. When it is closed all of the air is recycled from the room. To cool a room fastest, close the outside air inlet.

I meant the AC does not cool


Make sure the mode is set to freeze and temperature is set to below the room temperature.

If it is a split system, check the outdoor unit whether it is running. If it is running, see if you can reach and feel the temperature of the pipes connecting between the indoor and the outdoor unit. It should be cool.

If it is not cool, you may need to get somebody to check the refrigerant.

What is the setting for the push-pull lever on the right side of my in-window air conditioner? thanks


If you want to pull fresh air into the room and not use the cooling part of the unit. pull the lever out. If you don't want to introduce fresh air into the room during the cooling cycle, push the lever in.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a window mounted unit. There is a lever that says exhaust and it has two settings. Up is 'closed' and down is 'open'. I have no owners manual so could you please explaine what this...


This lever is for the air vent control. Open it to allow fresh air to enter the conditioned space and close to make sure that the air outside will not mix with the inside air. Opening it also allows to exhaust cold air from the room.

Let see if I can help. The numbers don't come up so we'll just try your information.

Exhaust - should be closed when using for Air Conditioning
Energy savings turns the fan off with the compressor when set for Air Conditioning
Fan Only means just that (no Air Conditioning)

Fan speeds Quite same as low, Norm same as medium, Super same as High
Temp settings, what the thermostat senses before cycling compressor.

Unit set on high cool do I have exhaust levers opened or closed


You want them exhaust levers closed. Them thangs are in my neck of the woods called Yankee air conditioning. In other words if it is cooler outside than inside you would want to open the exhaust levers to allow the fresh air in and the stale air out. If the temp outside is warmer than inside you want the exhaust to remain closed so you won't lose your cool air.

What is purpose of pull lever on top right of decorative panel


It's an air intake vent damper. If you push it in, the unit won't pull any air from outside, instead it'll recirculate air from the room. If you pull it outward, it allows the unit to pull air from outside. During the day when it's hot outside, the lever should be pushed into the closed position to allow for more efficient cooling. At night, if you want to exchange air from outside when it's cool enough, pull out the lever to allow that to happen. The unit will exhaust hot air no matter if this switch is in or out.

Describe your Kenmore Air Conditioner Proble. My


the vent is a fresh air intake, when it is pulled open you are mixing outdoor air in the unit. when it is hot and humid outside you will make the unit struggle to cool. Leave the vent closed.

Kenmore room air cond fan runs, no cool. checked


if the fan motor is on but the compressor is not : if the compressor has correct voltage up to the terminals and is not operating, the compressor is bad, if ther is not power to the terminals, the start components may be the culprit, if there is no power to the start componenets then the controller is the issue.

Air exhaust hose gets extremely warm


The Pinguino's exhaust pipe has to be attached to the window bracket to direct the air hot air out of the room, otherwise the room can't cool properly.
The owner's manual has several troubleshooting remedies for you to try:
1)  If the window is open, close the window. 2)  If there is a heat source in the room (burner, lamp, etc.), eliminate the heat source. 3)  If the exhaust hose is detached, connect the exhaust hose.  (My recommendation is to connect the exhaust hose to the window bracket and direct the air outside.) 4)  If the air filters are clogged, clean or replace the filters.
Remedies that aren't mentioned in the manual, but you might find helpful:
1)  Make sure that there are no kinks in the hose, and that the hose either remains straight or has a gentle curve when directing it into the window bracket.
2)  A sunny window reduces the maximum power and efficiency of the unit.  Placing it in a sunny window reduces your BTUs by at least 600, which means the maximum square footage of cooled space is reduced.  Cooling a kitchen requires at least 4,000 BTUs alone, which is nearly half of the unit's BTUs.  Try to place the unit by a window that receives minimum to no direct sunlight.
Finally, stating the obvious, if the room isn't cooling, the room is too large for the unit.  The PACL90 cools up to 400sqft.  Bear in mind that the air from these portable air conditioners cannot move around corners very well, so try to set it by a window in the central part of the room.
