Question about Kenwood KW85 Air Conditioner

Kw85 not cooing properly

All the settings are where they should be. The condensation tank filled up, was dumped, and now the unit isn't recognizing that the tank was emptied... Still says it is full. I'm in FL and it's just about 100 degrees in our office. PLEASE HELP!!!

Tug at the cord or float above the tank and make sure it makes a clicking sound(its turning on and off) if it doesnt, it means the switch is shot

    since the switch is clicking, maybe the wire poped off it, you may have to take off the housing

My ice maker quit, was replaced with a new one, it filled and dumped one time, filled again, didn't dump, was thawed out then didn't fill at all. Water still dispenses from the door just fine.

If the unit is new return it for another one - if there is water in the tray and it is not dumping, either the unit is not working properly or the internal freezer temperature is not going down low enough for the unit to work. Has to go down to at least 10 degrees for the tray thermostat to start the ice dump/making cycle.

These units must be removed and chemically cleaned annually or the channels along the units bottom that allow the condensation to migrate to the outdoor coil and be slung onto the coil via fan blade thus evaporated,sub cooing the refrigerant as it does so, cannot work, if the units not level or if the evaporater coils dirty the condensation cannot drain either..

The unit sustained an impact during shipment and was dented on the bottom. I hammered out the dent and the condensation tank fits fine and the unit is working fine as well.

Your base pan may be full of water, check at the bottom of the unit for some drain plug. Drain out the water and start the unit.

when the clean water tank is filled and set in the proper position the water steadily dumps on the floor when i inspected under the unit you can see the white rubber diaphragm approx. 3/4" in diameter exposed and you can see what i assume to be the suction line for the clean water when the handle is pulled it appears that there would have to be another part here some sort of cover or something to assist the diaphragm in holding back the water from dumping out of the tank until the handle is pulled does anyone have any photos of the bottom of the unit or know where i can get this part any thanks is much appreciated Bill

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. There is a valve under the water holding tank that is probably giving you a problem and it is replaceable depending on if it is underneath the water holding tank or directly under the water tank. I am going to give you some phone #’s and websites that you can order parts from or fell free to contact your local vac dealer in your area for service and or parts.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions. Customer Service 1-800-237-7691

Start the unit and press the remote control at C if the display in the unit displays C, then turn off the unit using the remote control and plug out the ac supply. Plug the unit again and using the remote control turn on the unit. If the E4 still display there is something wrong with your air in sensor or the main board itself. Replacement of this parts needs a qualified technician.
