Question about Amcor NanoMax A12000E Portable Air Conditioner

Compressor not turning on, no cold air

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.

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,
Shastalaker7

Check compressor run amps is correct with a ampere meter. If less, it's under gas leak. Keep your arm on discharge line (smaller pipeline). If no heat means no gas in the system. Find leak and arrest it. Vacuum and recharge gas.Better service the unit and check. Due to condenser & cooling coil, air filter, blower wheel are dust blocked will result to very less or no cooling.

I think, your compressor is not working. Check with amphs meter. If less amphs gas leak. Arrest the leak and re charge gas. If tripping with high amphs change capacitor. Still high amps, compressor is defective.

My Carrier 43B00HP - 1 is not blowing cool air. The fan is working but the cool air isnt coming out. If you turn it on and leave it on for awhile it turns off by itself


Please check your compressor whether it takes correct amphs. Due to weak in capacitor and also less rpm of fan motor the compressor gets overheated and it turns the unit off. If capacitor weak change it. If less rpm on fan motor change fan capacitor or fan motor.

if the compressor is starting there will be a very small dimming in the house lights,if you go outside to the unit and start it from the outside disconnect when the compressor starts you will hear a whine type noise coming from the outside condenser unit that is the hermetic compressor motor operating,no cold air can be a number of issues,low on refrigerant(not likely on the new sealed systems) a bad motor start/run capacitor(quite likely) a bad contactor on the outside unit that supplies power to the compressor,one leg of the 240volts that supplies the compressor power,the fan will run on 120 volts,but the compressor needs 240 volts check the fuses.breaker in the power panel

Ac fan on, blowing air, but not cold


Check outside unit if unit and compressor are running feel the large line to see if it is cold. If compressor is running and line is not cold possible charge problems. You may have a capacitor problem outside. they go out quite often. You can change this yourself, Open up outside unit and the cap is the silver bullet with terminals out the top. Bad cap can cause compressor to not operate and also the fan. You need to clean the coil inside or at leat check the coil to see if it is clean. You can clean theis with a toilet brush do not go against the coil bit brush with the fins. You may need to call a service tech but try these options first. russ

My Dometic 620315 Penguin roof a/c does not produce cold air.


If the compressor is running with no cold air the unit is more than likely no good. It can not be recharged. you need a new unit. If the compressor is not running you need to check the capacitors.

No A/C


It seems that that the overload of compressor is tripping on and off, either your compressor overload is defective or the compressor itself
