Kenmore Air Conditioner

I have 2 Kenmore Air Conditioners. Both are vented through my furnaces. My question is..... to prepare for winter, I have covered both units and I believe the only other thing I should do is turn off the breakers to these units. True?

Re: Kenmore Air Conditioner

You must be referring to your outdoor condensing units. Yes it would be ok to cover and disconnect power, but I would suggest turning power back on, uncovering, and making a cooling test run long before you need it, after it warms up.

I am a single woman trying to prepare my mastercool for winter. I don't know how to remove the pads, so if insructions could be sent, it would be greatly appreciated. I don't know the size of the cooler,...

Is it a side draft or downdraft cooler? My instructions simply say to cover the unit, disconnect the power and drain the water for winter. They don't suggest removing or cleaning the pads until spring. If you're ductwork also is connected to your furnace, and you don't have a cookie sheet(piece of sheet metal that fits in a slot beneath mastercool unit or along the inside if it's a side draft cooler) then besides covering the entire unit you cn probably cover the blower, also called the squirrel cage, with a canvas cover.

Does drip pan need to cover entire furnace or just coil. I got both answers for repair men.

When you say drip pan are you refering to a pan located under unit in case drain plugs ? If this is what you are talking about and you have a furnace that is 90% efficient or more which will be vented with pvc, it needs to be under the whole furnace as condensate water also comes from furnace when operating and if this drain plugs you will also have water leaking down from furnace. If it is a 80% furnace which will be vented into a chimney then pan needs to be just under a/c

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.

Black sticky residue in gas furnace vent pipe.

Unless this is some weird act of G-d, like sap from a nearby tree or something I will stick to furnace facts. LOL. Anyway, this sounds like an incomplete combustion situation. Let me explain. During the combustion process many elements are necessary to facilitate "complete combustion". If the correct combination is not met, the result will be a blackish residue. If you combine this residue with the condensation that normally occurs in the flu system, it could turn muddy or sludgy. This is can be a dangerous situation due to the amount of carbon monoxide (poison gas) nessessary to create this residue (similar to the film in the tailpipe of your car).

I would suggest calling another reputable company that offers true "combustion analysis" reports. The test takes around 30 minutes and they should be able to confirm my diagnosis. This test should cost anywhere between 100 and 200.00(US). Many times a simple adjustment to the gas valve or burner assembly will due the trick. Best of luck!

Window air conditioner storage

sure you can but you have to prepare it for the winter.

re-oil the fan motor and make sure you wrap the whole unit up with a plastic wrapper just like the one used in the kitchen, the one that you can stretch to cover a whole stainless food container. then put it in a box to further keep the moisture away.

then after the winter and you want to use it again,
unpack it and inspect the fan motor. make sure that it is freely moving without binding or sticking.
let it stand for a couple of hours so that if there is dew inside , it would evaporate first .
then you can use it again.

tnx 4 using fixya,
