Everstar MPK-10cr blowing hot air

Hello there! I have the Everstar MPK-10cr that seems to be on the fritz. After reading a lot on AC I pulled the unit apart and gave it a good cleaning to improve the air flow. This took about an hour and when I turned it back on it blew cold air like never before. Then about an hour later you start to hear the motor grinding down to a halt and then it just stops and the fan kicks in with no more cold air. Is this a compressor issue? is it fixable?

    Does it seem like it wants to start? Like a buzzing sound?

Sound like the back lower motor that turns the fan wheel in the back has failed or needs to be lubricated. I used a little bit of silicon spray since it resists moisture. You can try taking the back off...then the front...then take loosen the front motor fan wheel housing and lift up enough to access the lower back fan motor. I then sprayed the motor housing openings as close to the inner part as possible. That also stops the common noisey fan issue.

    I know this sounds a little complicated...you take the front and back cover off. As you guessed...you have to note the electrical connections. They are color coded except for two black connections. With the front cover off...you will need to take off the front black air louver (you know...where the air blows out)...4 screws. Then..you will need to remove the front blower weeel cover which is connected by 4 screws. You lift the front Wheel blower housing up slightly and move slightly forward (no need to disconnect) . You should then be able to see into the bottom motor that rotates the lower back blower wheel. When you look down on it..it has small openings in the motor. I use silicon spray and direct my spray directly to the center close to the spindle. I avoid spraying on coil wires. I have done this a few times but that doesn't mean it is safe. In fact..I recommend allowing a professional fix this. Nevertheless...I can't afford to fix it...so I do my own work. I take responsibility for myself but not for your work. Caution is advised and for heaven sakes...unplug the A/C before trying this.

I cleaned filter still black stuff blows out it feel like foam filter is not foamthatiwash


Order a filter replacement...

Your filter sounds as though it's so old that it's disintigrating and bits of it are being pulled into the evaporator coil which in turn reduces the efficiency of the coil...

When I press the button to change the speed of the fan it does nothing, and continues to blow at one speed and it is just about equivalent to the speed of the slow option...any ideas why? Also it will run...


Is it new? There may something wrong with the electronic circuit board not allowing other fan speeds. Try unplugging it for a while and try again. There is a temp sensing bulb somewhere on unit most likely on front where hot/warm air from space enters unit. Make sure you are not recycling cold conditioned air back onto sensing bulb.
