Compressors generally cost as much as the whole unit.

    It's hit or miss. Some will last 10 years and others only a couple. Sorry.

Can a Fujitsu compressor unit be connected to multiple inside evaporator units that have different tonnage ratings. 18,000 BTU compressor and 9,000 & 12,000 BTU evaporator units inside.

call fujitsu engineering division direct and ask them about what is connected and if it works ok
logically as each evaporator has it's own tx valve as long as the compressor is large enough to run all together it should work but get the right information from the fujitsu experts

Unit will not power on. Green light on the power cord indicates it is getting power. also tried different receptacles.

If you noticed an electrical smell (like something was overheating), you may have a compressor lockup, or a fan lock. If you know a good, and knowledgeable handyman, he should be able to troubleshoot the unit quickly. But if it is the compressor, repairs could cost as much as a new unit.

I have a everstar 10000 btu portable ac and the compressor died in it. i want to take it apart to recylce but not sure how to safely remove the freon inside of the system. plz help

Most people can not remove the ref. properly per. (EPA) you would need a tap fitting and guages and a recovery unit to transfer the ref into a tank. Take it to your land fill and they will charge you for this and its the responsible way to dispose of it.

Everstar portable ac 10000 btu

The everstar 10,000 BTU unit will require a dedicated 115 V 15 amp circuit. if there are other things pluged into outlets and running from the same breaker then the 15 amp breaker will trip. Or, these units also have a GFCI plug adapter. Be sure it has not been tripped due to an improperly grounded outlet, or wet location.

Demby portable Capacity: 11,000 BTU air conditioner

This unit is sized to approx a 35 square metres area at a normal 2.4 metre ceiling height. All I would recomend without actually seeing the problem is to check this measurement and close all windows and doors. The unit is most likely undersized, but check the air temp coming off the unit. It should be about 10 degrees.

Need owners manual for Everstar Portable AC MPM1-10CR-BB6

Needed the manual to clarify a P1 error message. Figured how to fix the error P1 on my own. there are two drains on the unit, one is always open as an overflow drip, the other at bottom of unit has a plug. I opened the plug at the bottom of the unit, drained the water, and the P1 error code cleared.

Where do I find parts for everstar portable air conditioners

I just purchased a 11,000 BTU Everstar from Home Depot. Not sure if it's the same model that you have. Maybe check there? I bet an employee would be willing to open one of the boxes to answer your question. Just tell them you bought it there. :) Or call Everstar, of course. Good luck!
