No Power


All rechargeable batteries die if left to sit uncharged for extended periods of time. If you can replace the battery, do so.

Override temperture setting on Amcor Amc-12000e portable Air Conditioner


Actually there is no way to do what you want because the unit is designed to operate when the inside temperature allows the heat exchanger to function so that it will condense the liquid refrigerant into a gas.
As far as using it in the winter to dehumidify this same applies. If it is to cold then the gas won't be able to condense back into a liquid. If I were you I would buy a portable dehumidifier but remember that if the temperature is to low it won't work.

Good luck

I have an AMCOR ALTL1200E, fan works, cold air comes out when the compressor turns on BUT after 5 minutes compresor turns OFF, then after 5 minutes again it turns on, what is wrong, thanks


Sounds like the unit is cycling off on a high head pressure (condenser coil too hot). When the condenser cools, the automatic switch resets. The unit cuts off again when the condenser heats up again. Clean the condenser coil, and clear out any debris (bird's nest, lint etc.)

When i turn it on it shuts off and the power button flashes red


Sounds like the condensation pan is full and the float switch is shutting the unit down. I just encountered this issue, there is a small pump that usually prevents the pan from filling up by pumping the condensate over the condensor and evaporating it, either the pump has failed or the humidity is too high and it can't keep up.

After years of perfect operation the water reservoir tank needs to be emptied every few hours. Is is almost a gallon of water each time. The normal time was always every other day ...at most once a...


12k BTUs will condense a gallon an hour easily, sounds like the problem is with a probable self-evaporating portion of the condenser. If so either the inner workings of that unit are dirty/malfunctioning or the exhaust duct is not getting proper airflow. If you're mechanically inclined I'd recommend pulling the unit apart and cleaning the condenser parts. If not perhaps try attaching a permanent drain hose to the drain plug. Definitely check the exhaust duct either way.

There is no drain pipe for the unit I have. It has a cap on the back but no hold, how does the condensation.


Self Evaporating Technology - During the cooling process, water is extracted from the air into the unit. Most of this water is then recycled and used to cool the unit and make it run more efficiently. Approximately 65 to 70% of water condensed is evaporated out with the exhaust air, reducing the hassle of emptying the water tank constantly. This unit has a built-in water tank (not removable) with a drain outlet, and a water tube. When the tank fills, the compressor stops operating and the power light will flash. This indicates that the tank should be emptied.

Amcor 12000-E air conditioner will not emit cold air. all filters are clear and hose is vented to outside. I'm about to boil


Hi, I'm new here but have the same model. Is your A/C new? Is your "Mode" set to "Cool" rather than "Fan"? Is the temperature set below room temperature? If not it will just run as fan. Lastly is your water reservoir full? Probably not the problem as the unit will shut off. Looks like you posted this a couple weeks ago, hope you figured it out.
