Question about Whirlpool ACQ128 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Air conditoner will not power on

Air conditione is two years old, put it in window, plugged it in, no power to the unit, tried the remote with new batteries, didn't work. checked outlet to make sure power was coming through, worked with a light, but not for air conditioner. is there a fuse that could have blown? (by the way, unit is stored in unheated garage for winter, but temps weren't all that low this past winter - other whirlpool units we bought work, stored in same place)

This will sound really crazy, but check to make sure that a little furry critter with beady eyes called a field mouse did not get in their and make it his home or worse yet his bathroom or decide to make a meal of the wires...
To find thid out youwill need to take the unit out of the chasis and then start opening up all the little boxes with wires that you can find...
You will probably know the problem when you find it... if there is no damage like that then check the may have lost the bulb charge and will not bring on the unit...

Our Kreisler air conditioner is rarely used, is 7 years old and will not switch on. The batteries have been renewed on the remote. Could it be the sensor in the unit? Do I need a service man?

The first thing I would suggest it to verify that power is provided to the unit. You should get a display on the face of the indoor unit if there is power. If there is power, try turning the outdoor unit off for a few seconds and back on to reset the controller. If your unit is like I think it is, the indoor unit receives its power and control signal from the outdoor unit, then the remote utilizes a rf signal to control the system. Also try new batteries in YOUR remote.

The air conditoner will not turn on the remote works but the unit itself wont go on is there a fuse in it

The newer air conditioners have a button on the actual plug. It is a reset breaker switch. Try pushing the button on the plug while it is plugged in. (Assuming it has one)

Apparently the gfci on the plug (the reset button) has gone bad. The best thing to do is to purchase a new cord and replace it. These switches sometimes go bad. Good Luck

Kenmore air conditoner model 580.75151500 keeps blowing the built in breaker on the cord. Air conditioner is only about two years old. Happens no matter where I plug it in

Hi there. Clean the condenser. (the outside cooling coil where hot air comes out.) Use compressed air. If no air, try a vacuum.

One year old window heat pump unit will not power

Is it not coming on? If it isn't, is the control pad lighting up? Is any of the electronics lighting up? If not, then the control board is probably bad. You will need to check voltages to the control board.

More than likely this unit could be fixed reasonably. It sounds from your explanation like a bad connection inside the control panel of your unit. Could possibly be what is called a cold soldered joint.

Unit stops working and I need to unplug unit

After 7 years of great service you should retire this system and replace it with a new unit.

Products made these days are not built for quality, that was back in the good old days, it's 2008, things are made to only last a short period of time.

Sorry I couldn't be more help, but I will only tell you the best solution for your problem and not waste your time running around trying to fix something that may cost you more than replacing the problem you already have.

Have a Great Day!!

Unless you can see if the fan is hitting something, you can't. You will need to take it to a repair shop. Sorry.
