Question about Amcor NanoMax A12000E Portable Air Conditioner
Have had the unit for less than a year. The fan comes on but and the compressor light comes on but the compressor itself never turns on. It does not blow any cold air, it just blows room temperature air. Have tried contacting AMCOR customer service but have had no response. Would really just like to get the unit fixed.
You need new capcitor in your A/C and do also use , if can the (Stabilizer) for coolest performance.... thank you

Hi, without the compressor running, you will only get room temp. air. You will be dealing with electrical trouble shooting to find why this compressor is not operating. If you do not have any electrical trouble shooting skills you would need to take it in to have it checked. There are several things you can check just by Looking, touching and so on. On a single phase compressor sealed pot, you will have a run cap, in your case it may be a dual cap one part to start the fan and the second part of the cap to start and run the compressor. I am telling you all of this so that maybe you and I can solve your problem. Just some things for you to look over being you are not an a/c Tech and have the equip. to check what would cause this.Turn off the power, and try and locate the run cap.If it is a dual cap it will be rather tall, 4 to 6" and oval with 3 terminals on top marked C, Hermetic, and Fan. Since you can't test it just look it over for any signs of oil leakage and bulging at the top and sides. If you do see this, it needs to be replaced. If it looks good it still may be open internally, but if you can excess the compressor, where the 3 wires enter, you should have a plastic cap to cover these wires. Try to remove it to see if maybe one of the wire connections have burned off, which will cause compressor not to operate. These are things that are checked in the field with meters and proper a/c tools, but you can look and find problems causing this. I wanted to give you a rather long explanation, as you can't always assume the run cap is bad unless you check it first. The compressor could also be shorted out or open windings.Without being on site, I can't check it. You if you can, look at the things I have told you, burned off connections, Leaking Run Cap or bulging at the top, it will be raised and distorted.Compressor terminals one may have burned off due to heat or loose connection. Please let me know what you are able to do, and get back to me.A little time spent exploring with my direction, may have you up and running with little or no cost. I'm just covering most all bases that we can under the circumstances.Sincerely,
