Just bought 12,000 BTU unit from Lowes. It worked for a while. It still runs but doesn't seem to cool as well and will occasionally spit ice from front vents.

You have to balance the adjustment of fan speed and the amount of coolness you set the unit for. Either increase the fan speed or lower the coldness setting.

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

I have an oddball question. What does a 3-ton A/C unit weigh? I know its not 3 tons.


Not every 3-ton unit weighs exactly the same - they differ in weight depending on how they were manufactured. Most 3-ton units weigh around 150 pounds (I would guess) give or take a few pounds.
The "3-ton" refers to the "cooling capacity" of the air conditioner.
It's actually 'slang' for 36,000 Btu.
Note; 12,000 btu equals 1 ton.
Hence a 24,000 Btu unit would be called a "2-ton unit," and a 12,000 Btu unit would be called a 1 ton unit.

Installed a 12,000 btu LG window unit. Did not see that the plug was a standard 250v. I changed recepticle, and the manual said to be sure to have a 20 amp breaker, which there is. The unit comes on but...


What is the voltage of the unit? What is the voltage of the circuit? You say standard 250 V plug ... is that the rating or the configuration of the plug?

More specifically, your 12,000 BTU unit should be on a circuit of its very own to preclude over loading the circuit and causing damage to your AC.

I have a Emerson Quiet Kool Model # 12JW42K that is 13 years old. It doesn't seem to cool the apt. anymore. I assume that it would be smarter to get a new "energy saving" unit than invest in...


I know that a Island Air units come in all shapes and sizes and they make a ton of different units. They are made in new york thats who I would use. I would definitly go with the 12,000 btu unit 500 square feet needs 12,000 btus 10,000 is under sized. 500 square feet divided by 500 = 1 ton of cooling. let me know if I can further assist.

What is the tonnage on an Intertherm S3RC-0336K.


Hello, the tonnage on this unit is a 3 ton unit. Your model number tells you. The 036 is the tonnage. There are 12,000 btu's per ton, so 36 divided by 3 =12 or in this case 12,000 btu's.

Just put in a new ac unit and replaced a old one. old unit was 18000 btu and the new one is on 12,000 btu I used the same power outlet but the new ac unit starts up but then shuts down and seems like it is...


The 18,000 btu A/C is 230 volts, are you sure the 12,000 btu unit is 230 volts most are 120 volts.
Usually 12,000 btu is the biggest 120 volt A/C you can buy.

Danby ALSO does not cool 3 days old


Take it back where you bought it. A 12,000 BTU unit should be more than enough for a 192 square foot room, so there is some problem with the unit.
