SOURCE: window or wall mount

The differance between a window and wall mounted A/C is the mounting system.
Window units are usually smaller BTU systems they set in the window, so you do not have to cut a hole in the wall to install it.
For a bedroom say 10 x 10 you can use @ 5000 btu it plugs into a standard 120 volt electric outlet. If the room is bigger then go bigger say @ 6000 btu or so. Take your room dementions with you when shopping for a unit. sometimes they have sizing on the side of the unit box.
Wall units are usually larger units. Like whole house 18,000 btu
they slide in and out of the case and use a 240 volt seperate circuit.
Best place to shop for A/C's are Home Depot, Lowes, Sams Club, B.J.'s, and Cosco they buy in large volumeusually give a Good deal I've seen 5000 btu units as low as $89.00
Just don't drop the unit out the window when installing it
From the second floor it will void your warranty. LOL
Good Luck Phil

SOURCE: Thru the wall AC units(small)

If it's the terminology you're unsure of, then the answer is yes the unit can be mounted through a wall or through a window. But you would have to have a suitable opening through the wall to mount it in. I'm not sure why it won't work in your window, but it might be easier to change the window than to create another opening in the wall. Or, as millionaires pointed out, you could put a portable unit that just sits on the floor, with big flexible air ducts to the window.

SOURCE: My maytag m6x06f2a-f window AC wont stop beeping

We had the same problem and changed the setting to auto and the unit seems to be working properly now. Not sure if this solves the problem, but for the past 1/2 hour the unit has stopped jumping between 00 and the temp we set.

SOURCE: exact same thing happened to me

the 20 amp circuit should more than handle a 6.5 amp load, the 6.5 is the rating of the operating AC not of the circuit that is required to be attached to it. If the "pop" noise is the breaker tripping the circuit may be miswired, the unit mayhave a short to ground, as the circuit breaker is designed to trip on an over amp situation or a situation where 20 amps is exceeded. Di you verify that the circuit voltage id correct, eg: 220 volt or 110 volts. and that it matches the unit nameplate.

My haier tv is stuck on 3.0. it wont do anything


Just try a hard reset first. Unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 10 minutes or so. It must make it a hard reset. If it do not help you, replace its main system control memory IC. It will look somewhat like this, and will have 8 solder terminals.

Hello Pete T - From what you have described the air conditioner possibly have a defective power/control board or faulty plug. I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose and repair the unit.

this sounds like you are either out of range of the base unit or your base station isnt plugged into the mains, ensure you have the base station plugged into the power and the phone line from the wall socket is plugged in, the base station controls all the handsets, if it isnt plugged in they wont work, good luck

go to sharpusa.com and click on support, they have all the model airconditioners and all the help. its in pdf format and i dont know how to paste the info. really easy problem to fix.

Basically, tells you to make sure air filter is clean.Unplug from wall, then hold Power/on/off button down and plug unit in wall. press Power/on/off button until you hear a beeping sound(approx 5 sec) then disconnect powerplug from wall. plug back in and start your ac again. it should work!

If this dont work try the same thing but by pressing the Mode button and same kind of operation as above, but the unit will start to operate after you press mode and herar the beeps. turn off by pressing On/off button. then start as normal. if you cant get it go visit the website.

It is possible, but very rare that I have seen this, the unit's AC plug is not making good contact in to the wall socket. The extension cord's AC plug may be making better contact to the wall socket, and the socket on the extension cord is making better contact to the unit's AC plug. It could be something this simple.

In my mind however, I sort of think that there is a very intermittent fault, and it does not show up too easily. Sometimes moving a device can disturb it in such a way that its fault may not show up (fault gets to be masked). The fault may come back to haunt you. Time will tell which scenario is the right one.

Haier wall-unit AC wont work


Try unplugging the machine, waiting a couple minutes, then holding down the power button as you plug it back in. Hopefully you will hear a "beep". Then unplug it again, wait a couple minutes, and plug it back in. This procedure works for clearing the "E1" code from some of the Sharp models, so maybe you will get lucky and the same manufacturer made the control board in your machine! Couldn't hurt to try it out. ;)

No power to unit


Remove the power plug and reopen the unit. Usually the socket will be soldered directly to a Printed Circuit Board. Look in the underside (where the solder joints are and you'll see the joints associated with the power socket. One of these is either a bad connection or the solder pad has lifted and broken the track on the PC board. If it's the solder pads give them a workout with a soldering iron if it still plays up scrape the protective lacquer of the PCboard Tracks and resolder them to the socket's solder joints. This should solve your problem. The best way to spot a bad connection is to reinsert your plug (making sure the other end isn't plugged into the wall socket) and lever the plug up, down, left and right. If there's anything faulty you'll see it. The solder joints will move very slightly and if the track is fractured you should spot that too. One other tip is that there is a switch built into the socket which will disable the battery power when you plug the unit into power. I have seen a few of these switches go bad but the chance of that is extremely small. I'd put my money on the socket's solder joints. BMW
