Physics, friend.
Ideally any cool input would be enough to effect the temperature, but other things are working against you.
Check the air filter behind the case cover and clean it if necessary. This may improve your air flow. While you have the cover off, look at the coils, and make sure that they aren't iced up or plugged. During peak humidity periods or when the refrigerant level is low, icing can occur. If you have a recirculating/outside air option, try to partially select outside air. In a well sealed room, with the selection of 100% recirculation, moisture can build up in the room. By setting it on 60, you may be asking it to do more than it is physically capable of.Dirt generally just happens, but can be cleaned. Provided that all's well that you have checked, look for other cool-robbing sources. Windows can be a huge source of heat gain in a room, particularly those that receive late afternoon sun. Light colored blinds reflect some of the heat, Other factors that can affect your heat gain might include openings or cracks around windows and doors, and the state of your insulation in your walls and attic. Assess your area for leakers and hit the biggest offenders first. You can do a rough assessment to locate heat gain with your hands by moving around the room and feeling for heat. Significant amounts of heat can be felt by touching the walls, ceiling, etc. Open vents can have a profound effect. If you have a fireplace, is the damper closed? That sort of thing. All things to consider.
Hope that this has been useful to you.

I have my brand new frigidaire window ac unit set at 60 degrees Fahrenheit, so why does it only cool and keep the room at 65 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit?


if you have it set at 60 F and it is working at 65 to 68 F then that would be about right
as the air is cooled the cold air falls to the floor and out under the door, open window or anywhere else it can escape
the unit has to be at 80% room height so if it is set in a window then when the cold air gets up to the thermostat or ac level in the window then it will stop cooling
So if the ac unit is say 4ft from the floor and the ceiling height is 8 ft then the ac will only cool the bottom 4 ft
cold air does not rise but falls down
if you are using a ceiling fan then the cold air is stirred up and the 65F sounds about right
remember that the setting temp ( what you set it at) is the lowest temp that it will go down to before it stops cooling and if that is not reached it will keep working to attain that temp and if the room is too big, air leaks under door . around the fit in the window , no insulated walls , hot exterior wall,etc then maybe 65 F is the best you will get

Why does the split unit blow hot air in air conditioner mode, when switched on with the remote control.


because you have the temperature set at 28 degrees celcuis . Change the temperature to 18 degrees and it will cool 28 is hotter
It is a reverse cycle air conditioner it will warm the room if you set temperature to 28 degrees . Set it lower and it will blow out cold air.
Have exact same air conditioner as I recognise the remote control.
point it at the air conditioner when altering the temperature setting.
Check under the slide compartment also on the remote for more advanced settings.

My frigidaire a/c is set 73fhrenheit after running for a time the temp. on the unite drops to 60 degrees by it self what is the problem ?


AC units, no matter if they are big/small, window or big central units. They will only cool the air in the room, or home, to about 15 degrees cooler than the outside air temperature. If you live in Georgia and it is 100?F+ outside, you will be lucky if the unit will reach 80?F even running all day.

Most likely is a issue with the temperature sensor that when it reaches the level selected is not turning the compressor off.

I have an LG AC and the lowest temperature setting is 60 degrees


Lowering the temperature setting doesn't change the temperature of the air coming out of the unit it just lets it run until the room temperature gets colder. Check the temp of the air coming out of the unit. If it isn't as cold as it used to be the charge could be low. First though you should make sure the filters are clean and the coils.You should also check the actual room temp. It's also possible the unit doesn't have enough capacity to keep up with the cooling load of the room.

You need to check the evaporator to see if it needs cleaning. You can check this by taking a dollar bill and see if it will hold it in place while running. Inadequate airflow will cause poor performance. Unfortunately ,this is something that would require removal from the window.You should use a coil cleaner made for evaporators from an a/c supply house. Another cause could be the condensor fan motor not running if it has a seperate fan.Hope this helps

Thermostat window ac turns unit on and off 8 degrees above se


the unit may be drawing the cool air it just released back into itself,plus the air close to the unit may be a little cooler than the air in the rest of the room.

It sounds like a restriction in your ducting. Feel the A/C vents in the hot rooms to see if cold air is blowing out of them. If the ducts are restricted, then it is possible that the air conditioning coils are freezing up from lack of circulation. Inspect the ducts if you can to see if there is any restriction.

Note that even if you feel air coming out of the ducts, it could be ambient as opposed to cold. The best thing is to measure the air temperature coming out of the ducts. It should be around 20 degrees colder than the ambient air at the intake of the A/C.

I bought a Lg 11,500 btu air conditioner yesterday at home depot. It has been set on 60 degrees with the fan on high and will only bring my room temp down to 79....it does not feel cool


An 11'500 btu Is appr. 1 ton of cooling capacity or enough to cool approximatly 450 sq ft of floor area. Be sure to read the instructions of course and be sure that all the packaging material was removed that may be restricting airflow. On high you should be able to easily feel the air blowing 10-15 ft from the unit and the air should be dropping about 15- 20 degrees when it exits the unit. So if the room temperature is 85 degrees the air exiting the unit should be around 65 -70. The amount of time it takes to cool the entire room depends on how big the room is and how much and the intensity of the heat infiltrating the room and the number and heat output of appliances and people in the room. Hope this helps you out GL!
