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?

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 have RUUD furnace with build in coil for air conditioner and Weather King compressor outside of my condo. ALL EQUIPMENT IS 4 YEARS OLD I didn't have any problem with heat at winter, but in summe


When you remove the panel to the unit it turns off the power to it. The reinstalling the panel will reconnect power and allow the unit to reset. So the cheapest and easiest thing you can try is to replace the thermostat. Make sure you see how many wires you have connected to your existing tstat and buy near the same thing. It's possible that the tstat is acting up, not allowing the unit to cool when the temp demands. And turning off power is resetting the tstat as well as the unit. It will be hard to troubleshoot with the info provided so a new tstat will be worth a shot. Hope this helps!

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.

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,
