Question about Whirlpool ACC108PS Air Conditioner

1 Answer

My Whirlpool window a/c is not cooling as well as it did last sum

Mer. It does blow refrigerated air (just doesn't feel like its cold enough), compressor comes on, etc. I set the "temp" to 64 (lowest) put it on "low fan", "power save". It cycles like it's supposed to, then the temp gauge for the room temp goes to 64 or sometimes even lower (I know it is not 64 degrees or lower in my house) and the compressor goes off. If I put it on "high fan" and "cool" it seems to bypass the temp setting but it still doesn't seem to get cold enough. Any ideas? Coolant leak? Thermostat problem? This is only it's second summer.

I know it has been at least a year since your post. I am answering the post to terminate FixYa site activity on the post.

Remove the front cover. Check the routing of the temp sensor wire. It should go from the bottom of the control panel to the plastic clip in the evaporator coils. If it is touching the eavporator coils it will sense the refrigerant temp and cycle off early. If the unit is freezing up there is a restriction in the coolant lines and usually will require the coolant system be purged of foreign internal debris.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Probably low on freon(which means a leak) or a blockage in sealed system. Both costly repairs.

If it is not blowing out enough cold air it appears you may be low on refrigerant. The latter will cause the compressor to short cycle with resultant warmer than normal output temps.

I,t sounds like you had a leak, and pulled air into the system. This calls for professional servicing. Whenever there's a leak in a refrigeration system, air and sometimes other noncondensables get pulled into the system. They don't belong there. They cause heat and high pressure in the condenser, and will eventually destroy the compressor. The system needs dehydration and evacuation before charging. That's after all leaks have been repaired.

My whirlpool gold two sided refrigerator, model #6D5RHAXNB00, the refrigerator side is not getting cold enough! I can't feel any cool air coming through the vent on the left upper corner.


your freezer may be iced up not allowing the cold air from the freezer to blow into the frige .you may see a ice build up on the back wall of the freezer.an ice build up can also stop the fan.if you can leave the unit off for 12 hrs or longer to thaw and that helps after restarting you may need to change the defrost timer ,defrost heater or both.a faster way is to remove the covers if you can do that.

Fridge not freezing meats


I was writing a big note here before then hit the wrong button, it was just a bunch of jargon anyway. Yes it is the condenser fan motor causing your problems. Doesn't cool the refrigerant properly than nothing works. I would change the fan before it causes any damage to the compressor.

Put new AC compressor on, ice cold air for 2 days then blowing cool to warm air. Compressor is working but air not cold. Sometimes will get a small burst of cooler air but doesn't last.


You did'nt mention if you got the system refilled with Refrigerant after the Compressor was replaced or not. If not, that could be the problem.

My central air unit comes on but it's not cool and


to me it sounds like filter are dirty, need to be cleaned or replaced, home systems, packaged or otherwise are hermetically sealed and should not need freon recharge. Always start with airflow and/or unit being set too low. An AC unit of any type will build ice if a) the filter is plugged up and can't move enough air, b) it has been run without the filter, clogging the coil, again, not moving enough air, c) setting an AC unit below 68 degrees F will almost ALWAYS cause icing, and d) running a standard AC when it's warm inside and cold outside (unless equipped for "low-ambient operation"). When in doubt, a bit of maintenance(thorough cleaning) by someone with AC skills can cure a b, common sense will cure c d.

Refrigerator portion on top does have cooling but freezer on bottom works fine. I have read that the cooling all happens in the bottom and a fan transfers cool air to the the top.


if the fridge part is cool and freezer is fine what problem are you having?is the fridge not cold enough? a common problem with bottom mount freezers is the freezer door doesn't get closed all the way,warm air enters the freezer mixes with the zero degree air and freezes up the air ducts,when you open the freezer door you should hear the fan blowing,if it is check the ceiling in the freezer to see if ice is on it,check the packages for frozen water droplets and stick your hand in the fridge where the air ducts are to see if you can feel cold air blowing into the fridge,if you can't feel air blowing into the fridge,unplug it,open the freezer door,remove the top basket and remove all the food out of the bottom basket,with a hair dryer blow into the back wall into the vent holes and melt out all the ice in the ducts,you'll see water dripping down through the vent holes,when the water stops dripping plug it back in and see if the fan is blowing the air into the fridge.also you can remove the bottom kickplate and you should see a tech sheet in it,read it and it will tell you how to put the machine into defrost,it will stay in defrost for like 20 minutes,you can do this instead of unplugging it, there's a heater that comes on behind the back panel in the freezer,this can help you melt out the ice but if it seems to hard to do just unplug it.
