Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have an Edgestar Portable Air Conditioner AP12000HS. The Air Conditioner works wonderful, however I can't get it to heat, I put the Mode Button on red which is supossed to put the heater on, it will run for a few minutes and then shut off and it does not take the chill out of the room I have the unit in, is there some kind if thermostat internally which can be set? The way it runs now does not do me any good as a heater.

    This is a brand new unit, the heater was just turned on for the first time a few days ago, is this a warranted item and if so I do I get paid for it or does the repair facility bill you? Please let me know. Thanks "Larry"

The unit has a built in thermostat in the front control panel, this is what maintains the set temperature, it is very likely that this control is defective, all the controls for the unit are contained in the CCU (central control unit) and it is replaced as one part, you can locate a repair facility for the unit at the following number.

My edgestar portable unit smells like miuldew when running. What can I do to clean it

First, start by cleaning the air intake filter. This alone can make a significant difference. Check the exhaust hose(s) for obstructions. Also make sure that the hose(s) are not drooping to much. As this will trap moisture in the hose(s), rather than exhausting out the window.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

In "Heat" mode, the displayed

You have something else going on. The tstat is probably sensing a remote temp. Is it hanging on the wall next to the furnace? Maybe warm air is coming from the furnace closet and fooling the tstat? Or an appliance or TV located too close to is, and heating it? If its quickly increasing the temp during unit operation only, it may be sensing air through the hole in the wall, directly being the tstat, where the wires come though to connect to the tstat. Try plugging that hole and test it. Or possibly the ceiling register that supplies air is facing the tstat, warming it by blowing hot air directly at it. If that's it, remove the grille and face it away. Not sure what else it may be. Hope this helps!

How far from floor should exhaust hose hole be made edgestar 12000

makes no difference, as long as the ducting is not kinked.
keep in mind heat rises
so obviously if you could dump the heat elsewhere, away from the area you are cooling, then it would not creep back up through the floor. If your flooring is well insulated it will not matter.

Edgestar 12,000 portale air conditioner and heater

There are 3 possibilities beginning with the most likely problem

1) If your heater heats up for a few minutes and then quits, chances are there is a blockage in the air flow, check for dust and grime blocking the air intake coarse filter , airgun blow to clear accumulated dust and otherwise clean the coarse filter .
2) If the heater fan blows but there is no warm air, the heating element needs renewal ( this happens very rarely)
3)If the fan stalls and the heater heats up and the thermostat kicks in, then this will be not be a DIY job. This is least likely as you said the air cooler works.

Edgestar AP550Z won't heat, goes into some sort of alert mode
This could apply to at least one of your units. Apparently these models have had some trouble with the compressor capacitor wires coming loose. If they're barely touching they could cause the compressor to run intermittently and possibly overheat. The compressor runs in heating and cooling mode.
