Rinse you pads and turn them upside down... usually the should last 3 months..if you notice them being yellow and hard you may need to replace them...it always depend on the water hardness.

I think this is the one that has a moisture sensor in the pads, if they don't get wet the fan won't blow, try manually wetting pads to see if fan comes on, if it does, find out why the pads are't getting wet i.e.something plugged

Bonaire vulcan comfort control


No it cant really be fitted as the evap system uses much larger duct and also in some cases people use a different type of duct that when running a gas heater threw it it tends to melt with the heat. Your best option would be to get new ducting that way you can size it correctly so you dont have air alance issues down the track.

I have an evaporative cooler: vulcan bonaire. the only control buttons which appear to be useful are: on/off, cool in the 'appliance' window, and cool in the 'mode' window. i have a feeling that this is...


Hi and welcome to FixYa. The principle of operation of an evaporative cooler is to provide cooler air via evaporation. The evaporation process is achieved by water being pumped over very porous pads with air is drawn through the pads. Most all evaporative coolers unless connected with a centralized heat / cool system only have an on / off & cool function. "On" is fan only (air circulation while using outside air being drawn into the home) and "cool" turns on the pump to pump water over the pads for evaporative cooling. Hopefully I did not confuse you with my answer.

Happy New Year and thanks for choosing FixYa,

My kenmore window unit AC started blowing a white smoke like substance. It seems to be cooling fine. What is this and is it a concern?


The two things it could be, #1 - evaporator leaking refrigerant - unlikely if unit is still cooling o.k. because window units do not hold a lot of refrigerant and if there is a leak bad enough to blow smoke it would have stopped cooling by now. #2 - the humidity is high and the unit has cooled the air right at the discharge down below the dewpoint, a common occurence in window units and automobiles due to the short duct distance from the evaporator to the air outlet whereas with central air systems having longer duct systems the air gains more heat before being discharged into the room.

The front ac unit has very poor cooling and left running, freezes up and drips water out of the ceiling grill. I s the unit shot?


Ensure the air filter and evaporator coils are clean. If they are clean and everything is running properly, then the unit may need refrigerant. It depends on the age of your equipment and the location of the leak (price to repair) as to whether or not the unit is shot. Check your air filter and evaporator coil first. :-)

Hi my Bonair Evaporative Cool is blowing hot air and the pads are dry,how can i fix it.


am assuming it is full of water, so you need to check to make sure the pump screen is not clogged up. make sure and unplug the unit before working on it. after checking the screen/filter, leave on panel off, plug it in and turn it on, look to see if you have any busted hoses that are leaking. if all seems ok, then you have a bad pump or switch.

Ive got a mildewy smell coming from my evaporative cooler how do i get rid of it?


This unit needs to be serviced. Try replacing the pads with the sponge like pads.Drain the old water and clean up the pan and pump area. Go down to a pool supply store and buy some chlorine tablets and add to the water. In fact, they make these tablets just for the evaporator units. There are 3 states to water, solid, liquid and gas,
. This will get rid of the smell.

We bought a Bonaire cooling system at yard sale, it leaks water after it is running for awhile, plus it sprays water out the front


I take it this is a window Unit , the water is coming in the room because the Unit has to be pitched about 1/2 into the back ( outside ) or the drain line is clogged ( dirt) stopping water from flowing to condenser ( that cools the coil)
The water is condensation from warm air hitting the cold coil .

Bonaire Cooling system that stopped working after power failure..


Unplug the unit or turn off the breaker to the unit for at least 30 seconds. If this reset does not work, the electronics may be damaged and need a repair person.

Vulcan-Bonaire : summer breeze


This unit is a cooling unit only. I don't know what switch you are looking at but I don't think it's for the evap. cooler(swamp cooler). I am in the Phoenix, Arizona area and it's very common to have a evap. cooler and a seperate heat/cool system as on the hottest days the evap. cooler doesn't cool enough. I hope this helps. Please give me a positive rating. Thank you.
