Question about Kenmore 76100 Wall/Window Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Noise, now starts for a few seconds and dies

I have a Plasmaire model 580.76129300, for the last few weeks the unit was rough when it was started, made some noise, but then would settle down, now the display unit flickers when it is turned on, the fan comes on for a bit, then dies. The unit is a bit over 5 years old.

    Yeah, I figured I got my money's worth, it was a couple hundred bucks at the local Sears warehouse clearance center. But the damn thing died just before I was ready to move and I had already sold it to the landlord so I better replace it with another clearance unit tomorrow. Thanks!

The blower motor has shorted out and its taking the motherboard with it. I hate to say this but I think you already know its time for a new unit
the average life span is about 3 years on this model so its had a good run I hope this helps

Danby wine fridge making noise


If I checked out the right video it sounds like a fan motor. After a fan motor heats up and with age the fan will leak a little oil, the oil will become to thin and not cote the bearings well enough. It sounds like the fan trying to start back up after stoping. I would track down the fan motor and replace it.

You might check the pulleys that the serpentine belt runs on. Make sure all are free wheeling and not loose or rough or make noise. You would need to remove the belt to check them.

Blocked jets or dirty fuel , flush and clean out your fuel system. Check that the fuel pump is working at the correct pressure also.

Stalling at idle


Bought a use 03 last week for very cheep because it was idling rough, read in a forum about focus vacuum leaks and to use small burst of starting fluid to find the leak, spray around engine, if you hear the engine level off and run smooth in a particular spot for a few seconds the leak is in that general area, check the hose in that area, i found a large elbow on my pvc valve line was cracked in half, repaired with copper plumbing elbow fitting and silicone. now runs perfect. be very careful with the starting fluid short burst in well ventilated are.
