Broken AC window unit Kenmore

Hi I am contacting you today to help me with my AC window unit.It is a Kenmore,the fan stopped working I only hear a quiet humming. I took the cover off and plugged it it I gave the fan a small boost in the direction of the motor rotation and it took off and ran for several minutes it did not quit on it's own. I unplugged the unit again allowed the fan to come to a complete stop then plugged it in,and again a quiet humming untill I gave it a spin. With nothing plugged it if I spin the fan it goes and goes leading me to believe the bearings are good. Any hepl you could give me would be GREATLY APPRECIATED Thanks for your time,Dave

The motor is clearly bad. The problem is with the windings. Unfortunately most small A/C/s these days are cheaper to replace than repair.

Problem with GE PTAC-Model# AZ28E09DABM2 - Why won't condenser kick on when switching to AC from Fan. AC was working fine until today...Fan is still working...Pulled the unit out and could feel the h


Hummm. A bit difficult to solve this problem. Seems like the condenser outside is not working, I mean the fan of the condenser. Looks like you have a wall A/C and a wall A/C always have condensers outside the house and near the A/C. Have you checked if the fan is spinning? I don't think the compressor is at fault but check it anyway. You should be able to hear the compressor running either in the wall unit or in the outside condenser housing. The only heat you should feel is from the condenser itself. If you blows warm air, that means the fan is working, if not that means the fan is not working. But don't be confused with the fan not working because in winter time sometimes the fan is not working and some times it does. As I said, it's a difficult problem to solve but at least start with checking the situation with the fan in the condenser.

My old Kenmore window unit has all of a sudden stopped working. Was working fine then just stopped coming on. The wall outlet checks out fine. Is there a re-set on the unit? What else can I check?


Hello, if the unit is receiving power check the capacitor, this is a round or oval can located inside the control panel of the Ac, it controls the fan and compressor operation.

Hello, I have a Kenmore 580.75124500 ac/heater


It is probably the compressor. You will need to check if the compressor is being called to come on. Do you hear the compressor running? If you do, I would remove the unit from the wall or window, and wash it down real good with a hose being careful not to get the electronics wet. If not and the unit sound different than it did before, it's probably time to buy a new one.

A/C quit running


This question is really to broad to answer. There are several things that could cause it to stop running. I think I would turn everything off, let it cool down for several hours and try it again. When you kick it back on, take note of what is running and what's not running. Inside fan, outside fan, compressor. If the outside unit will not run at all it could be as simple as a grasshopper caught in the contacts. If you hear the compressor running outside but no outside fan, The fan motor probably needs replaced. Please make sure that all power to the unit is TURNED OFF before removing cover plates on outside unit and before trying to remove insects from contact points. Check all wiring inside outside unit while it is open. Also check capacitors for swelling or leaking. If you don't know how to turn all the power off or open the outside unit, you need to call a professional AC technician. Hope this helps. kstfas
