SOURCE: Noise

Adding cloth or any other sound absorbing material will not work. There is not enough room to add anything appreciable in the fan area.

SOURCE: New LG 8000 btu a/c units are rusting

I have a similar situation with 66 a/c units in my motel. The problem is the drain valve in the back of the unit (near the compressor) does not function properly. It is supposed to open when the water temp (laying in the bottom of the unit) gets to 50 degrees cusing the drain valve to open and let the water out. The problem is the water never reaches 50 degrees when the outside temperature is in the 80's. So the water sets in the units. The fan sprays the water over the fan motor, heating element and inside the chasis causing it to rust from the inside out. I have notified LG and they are investigating it...... Amana has the same problems with their units which use the same drain valve and they have removed the drain valve in several motels in the area.
I would suggest removing the drain valve or wedging something under the little round plate so the the unit drains. Also make sure your A/C is tilted properly so the water runs to the back of the unit and drains.

Testimonial: "My a/c is still under warranty so LG drilled a small hole in corner of the drain pan on the side where the water was spraying out. Works great now!"

SOURCE: does the 8000 BTU unit need 15 or 20 amp wiring?

Find the nameplate ratings if they are still readable for this unit to see what they recommend.
Ideally a seperate circuit for this unit.
#14 minimum wire for 15amp
#12 minimum wire for 20 amp

NEED HELP TO REPLACE WIRES ON CAPACITOR ON GE ROOM AIR CONDITIONER 8000 BTU


with capacitors it doesn't matter which wire goes on which terminal
if it has just 2 terminals then a wire on each
if it has 4 terminals then one wire on one set and the other wire on the other set
A set is two terminals side by side
However if you are still undecided , get an electrician to fit the wires.

115 volt equals how many btu


Apples and oranges.
The 115 volts tells what "quantity" of electricity is needed to run the unit.
BTU's are the cooling capacity of the unit, which usually is about 5,000 for the smallest, up to about 18,000 for the largest.
Over 18,000 the electricity quantity is often boosted to 220 volts because of the larger size of the unit.

Thermostat doesn't activate unit


Put a volt meter on the red wire and the C terminal. You should get 24 volts AC. If not then the control transformer is shot

What is the minimum voltage required for this AC


According to the Owner"s Manual, if the serial data plate says 115 volts and the amperage is greater than 7.5 amps it must have it's on fuse or circuit breaker and no other electrical appliances should be run on that circuit. For models rated at 230 volts, the same holds true.

So, the the determination of minimum voltage is based on what the serial data plate shows.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Happy to assist,

HOW MANY BTU IS THE AIR CONDITIONER?
And is it 110 or 220 line!

If it is using 110 or 115 volts like normal house current and it throws circuit breakers in your electric box,then you need to run a dedicated line just for the Air Conditioner!
Usually this happens to 110 -115 volt air-conditioners that are more than 12,000 BTU and do not have a dedicated electric line in the wall only for the air conditioner!

New air conditioners have a circuit breaker built into the units plug!
And I have seen some that throw that breaker to off frequently even if it's only an electric surge! Which it should not do!
if its the case and it's new, take it back to the store and ask for a different model, size, or brand!
Fedders had an 18,000 BTU/ 110-115 volt unit that did this with every single unit last year! I stopped selling that unit only!!

Need a replacement thru the wall ac unit for model ajch10acm1, 115 v, 15 amp 9600 btu.


Measure the cabinet dimensions. then best place to check for replacement is Home Depot ,Lowe's, sometimes Sams Club, B.J.'s or Cosco these places buy in large volume and are hard to beat when it comes to price. The 115 volt units go up to 12,000 BTU. which is one ton. If you hit at the right time of year I,ve seen a/c units around 6,000 btu sold for as low as $69.00.
Shop around most all brands are about the same. Cost is based on the number of bells and whistles you want. The most simple units cost the least also the less that can go wrong. I have found it really hard to find exact demention replacements.
