Portable Air Conditioning unit no longer blows out cold air

Hi,

We got a portable AC unit (9000 BTU) from Homebase about 3 years ago, we use it for about 5-6 months of the year (every year). Last night it stopped blowing out cold air - is there some kind of maintenance we need to do to it or is it goosed?

Many thanks
Rachel

    Also ensure it doesn't need draining - the black tube at bottom left (when viewed from back) can be moved down and opened to drain any excess water.

Bit late I know, but for others having same issue, ensure that it doesn't need draining - use black tube at bottom left when viewed from behind to drain any excess water.

Using as heater and unit is blowing cold air


A heat pump is an air conditioner that reverses its refrigerant flow. In the cooling mode, the evaporator is cold to the room and its condenser is hot. In the heating mode, a valve reverses the refrigerant flow and makes the evaporator warm and the condenser cold.

Ac repair portable 12000 btu unit will not blow cold air


Maybe you have it set on dehumidifier mode instead of air conditioning mode. That happened to me with mine too. And turn off your timer (if it has one) or it will shut off after a while and you will forget why.

Compressor only stays on for 2-3 minutes than shuts off


if the sensors are okay, it might be the compressor overheating, my portable ac (moretti elite ac) is also behaving the same, especially when i turn the fan to max. the compressor shuts down about 7 mins and turns on again in about 5 mins, now i found out when i turn to medium or low the compressor runs normally. i think when on medium or low setting some of the cool air directs/channels to the compressor thus cooling it more.

sometimes storing an AC for long periods of time will allow the coolant that it uses to seep out, leaving you with an AC that seems to work, but won'tr cool any air. If you have a user's manual (or can find one) check to see what type of coolant it uses (if it's freon or something else) and if you can refill it. If you can refill the coolant, that should resolve your problem ... if not, you might be able to take it to a repair shop and have them do it for you. Good luck!
