It sounds like you may need a circuit board, the clicks are genrally the relays on the board calling for the components they control, it is possible for the contacts to "burn" open and not provide a path for the electriciaty to the compressor and fan., the capacitor is fine and the tolerances are +or- 10%

My kenmore 12000 btu portable air conditioner keeps switching to DH mode out of AC mode


That means that it is dehumidifying. Is the air coming out still cold? I assume you have tried using the mode button to switch it back? Is the air extremely humid? Perhaps it is humid enough that the machine needs to dry the air before safely operating as an AC. The manual is available here:

The compressor in my whirlpool stand up air conditioner is running fine but will only cool for a few mins then the cooling stops and the fan just blows. Any ideas?


If it is a capacitor start and run type, suspect the run capacitor. If not, suspect the start relay stuck or compressor on it's way out

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!

I've had this maytag 10000 btu slider casement air conditioner for approx 3 years. its installed in a window & has been used possibly 10 times. the fan motor comes on, however there is no cooling...


Check the thermostat, does it open and close (electrically)?

In the past three years, has the unit been cleaned? If the coil is plugged with dust, there may have been serious damage to the comressor.

With the unit unplugged, using a multi-meter, is there continuity between the switch hot tab and the compressor feed?

Is there a run capacitor on the compressor? If so, is it shorted or open?

These will give you a few places to start. If you do not know how to operate a multimeter, you need a contractor. Another option is to check your phone book and look for an local refrigeration school. Often, these schools will do the repairs if you pay for the parts.

Air cond dash light works, compressor doesn't go on.


AC's have a low freon switch that shuts off the system to protect the compressor in the advent that you have a freon leak have the system checked for a leak
