Question about Amcor PLM-14000E Portable Air Conditioner
I just purchased an Amcor PLM 1400E and it isn't working correctly. I have the A/C set at 64 degrees and the fan on turbo but the compressor will only run for two minute producing cold air. After this two minute period the compressor will shut off for three minutes and then the process repeats its self even with diffrent fan speeds or temprature settings. My over all room temprature is not droping even after hours of use. Unit is getting proper power, ventalation, it is level, room is air tight, room has only 2 occupants, room is only 250 square feet, and unit has free space for inlets and utlets. Any idea what the problem could be?
I am having the same issue, the exhaust fan that blows the hot air out of the home is most likely not working. I am having a hard time finding a replacement fan motor

There is a safety shutting down the compressor. Either the thermal overload is cutting it off because its getting too hot for some reason. Dirty coil, filter or fan speed, though you said the fan is running so that's out. Does the compressor feel really hot when its cycling on and off? If its not, its possible the thermal disc is bad, but unlikely. The other safety is low pressure (freon) You kind of need a set of A/C gauges to test this accurately. Hope this helps. These safeties are there to prevent the compressor from burning out, when something small is the problem, as its the most expensive part. You sound like have covered all the bases, so check the coils and filter, if there still is a problem, then you need to call a service tech. for warranty.
