Question about Kenmore 6000 BTU Single Room Air Conditioner

Open Question

I've had a plasmaire model 58075062501, 6,000 BTUs for 3 years, no problems. Earlier this year I woke up to find it leaking down the inside wall. I'm looking for the drain to clean before I put it away this year. Where is it?

It's probably just holding water somewhere and getting thrown out. I've seen people drill holes on the bottoms to drain water quicker.

What your problem is is that water coming back into your face is condesation. Appearently there is a clog preventing your condensation water from draining out the back side of the a/c You can remove the a/c from it's sleeve, take it outside and with a pump sprayer (Type used for spraying insecticide) filled with water spray around the base of the a/c where the condensor coil sits (you should see a small drain channel in this area) If this drain channel is clogged water will back up and the squirrel cage will pick it up throwing it out into the house.. Good Luck on your repairs

The outer drain hole is the only one that needed to be cleared. But, keep and eye on it, as there may be some floating debris in the drip pan. You said the unit is angled enough at the rear. So, I'm assume you have at least 1/4" to 1/2" downward tilt at the rear of the unit. If that's the case, for now, that's about all you can do. Unless you have a Wet/Dry Shop Vac. In which case you could **** the water out of the drip pan after removing the front panel of the unit. If you attempt this, be sure the Master ON/OFF switch on the unit is OFF and the unit is unplugged.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

How to change the refrigerant on my Kenmore plasmaire.


This a job for the experts as the correct amount and type of refrigerant gas is required. IN all honesty if the machine is working and cooling/freezing as required then don't fix it . IF not then there may be a sealed unit / compressor problem or a thermostat problem. Machines that are working properly will work for many, many years without a change of gas unless they develop a leak from a sharp object during the defrosting process.

Wall a/c is leaking water down log wall and puddling on floor.


When you sealed the holes outside, you trapped the water inside. The unit is designed to let the water run to the bottom of the pan and then go out the holes outside. Try unplugging one of them and see if that fixes the problem. Hope this helps.

Fidgerdare electrtolux air conditioner


have you brought it down for a general cleaning on the 3 year period? if not then that's what it needs now.

the coil is freezing up because of dirt accumulation on the coil. even there is a filter, still with in 3 years it could have accumulated to decrease the airflow thru the coil and freeze it up.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Emerson Air Conditioner #10HW42K through wall


First off, my model # is Emerson Quiet Kool 10HW42K. No it is not yet solved, however I am reaching out to a number of sources. Was hoping to get a simple answer since it is not a "repair" problem, but rather a "replacement problem". I am looking for another AC that will fit the original sleeve.

AC changes temperature by itself!


If it's not some sort of built in economizing feature, someone else isn't getting up and changing the temperature while you are asleep and the air conditioner fairy is playing tricks, then the control PCB is in need of repair and will have to be repaired through a sears authorized repair center.
I am a bit surprised that it will allow you to set the temperature to a low 70 degrees as this is pushing the limits of an air conditioner. They tend to freeze the coils at around that temperature.

My kenmore built in dishwasher is leaking out the front


change the door gasket. also check to see if the wall hasn't "sprung out" of position this will always cause leaks if the side walls aren't supported.
