Question about Kenmore Heating & Cooling

2 Answers

I have a Kenmore model 106.97710530 5,000 BTU unit that was given to me by a friend. I have no owner's manual. Is it hazardous to your health to have the entire unit inside? Does it have to have the back on the outside of the house? I can't find a plug close enough to a window to mount it that way. What can I do?

Hey there. What an air conditioner does is blow air across a coil which has cold refrigerant in it, removing the heat and blowing out the cooler air. The refrigerant then goes to the compressor which is basically a pump to move it. Next the refrigerant goes to another coil and air from outside is blown across it to remove the heat from it. Keeping nthe whole unit in the house will not accomplish any cooling. Actually, the compressor being a motor adds more heat to the refrigerant and you will end up heating your home instead of cooling. So in short, you need to find a way to have the backside of the unit outside. There are no health risks at all, it just will not work correctly.

It may not be hazardous to your health, but it'll never work that way either. The back side has to go to the outside to discharge the heat that is being drawn out of the room. If you leave it inside, and factor in the heat of the unit running, the room will get hotter, not cooler. They do make extention cords specifically for window units. Check at one of the "Home Hardware" stores, e.g., Lowe's, H/Depot. That should get you chillin' in no time!

Do you have an owners manual? If not the battery on your unit may need to be charged for 8- 14 hours before full function and mobility. If this doesn't help you may need a new battery. Good Luck Friend.

Manual/Instructions for a Kenmore 12 model 385-81512. Hello, I was given this sewing machine by a close friend without the manual and I absolutely cannot find any information on it. Please help!! Thank...


You may try contacting Sears. They have manuals for the 81510 and 81514, so one of those may be close enough to your machine. Usually, the only difference between models may be the number of decorative stitches, a couple extra options, or even the number of accessories, etc.

Manual (directions)


As your unit is no longer listed on the Sunny Health & Fitness website, there is no manual available to download there. I would suggest you give them a call SH& F Customer Service at 877-907-8669 as they do say manuals are available for all of their products.

The model number you listed didn't come up for Kenmore. However, the similar Danby model's Owner's Manual may help you. You can download and print it for future reference.

Window kit dimentions i have a window 18 inch wide


The portable AC units generally have a customizable, exhaust hose window, termination kit that comes with the unit.. In other words it can be cut to fit. The one that comes with the unit will fit casement windows, as well as sash windows.

To further assist you, I have included a link to the Owner's/Installation Manual for the model you referenced. You may download and print it if you like.

Need the BTU rating for an old Kenmore K948991 a/c


Your model number is not complete enough for a model check.
However, 18,000 btu in todays' units is what you need.
