Question about GE AGF05LA Air Conditioner

# Air Conditoner not cooling entire room

I am having trouble getting my Air conditioner (AGE18DJG1) to pump air out. Cool air is coming out of the vents, but not enough to cool the entire room.

I live in a studio apartment that is aprox. 600 sq ft and has 5 windows and a double glass entry door. The air conditoner's output is only reaching the area about 7 ft in front of it.

Also - how many btu is the AC. From your model number I might guess that it's a 18000 btu unit but you never know about model numbers. Somewhere on the unit there is a data tag, might be metal but could be a paper label. On this data tag it should tell you how many BTU the unit is rated at.

What size is the room? How much heat is being generated in the room, i.e. are there computers, tv's other electronic (heat producing stuff) items in the room? How many people typically are in the room?

What are the room dimensions? Length, Width, Heighth? Is it open to any other rooms/hallways? How many windows/glass doors? How many doors to the outside?

What size room are you trying to cool? It's possible the AC may be too small to handle your room.

This is not the answer you want to hear, but it appears your A/C does not have the cooling capacity to cool your area.
Here is a Air Conditioning Calculator that you can use to determine your area's needs via BTU's which is the standard for measuring cooling capacity.

In the meantime, you can improve your conditions by covering all your windows and the sliding glass door and by sealing as many air leaks (cracks around windows and doors) as possible. :-)

I hope you find the website to be very helpful to you moving forward.

I would guess by the question you posted that at one point this air conditioner DID cool the entire room. If that is in fact the case then chances are you have either 1. A dirty air filter, which can be found underneath the front grill of the unit, or 2. A dirty condenser coil, the coil found on the back of the unit, that is outdoors while the air conditioner is in the window. If this coil gets clogged up, then the proper heat transfer will not take place, and you will not get proper cooling. Hope this helps.

### I have a single room 8000 btu kennmore air conditoner was making loud squealing noise when compressor kicks on and now it makes no noise and does not cool at all please help

sounds like the compressor may have died on you. the compressor isnt running you might as well trash it sorry for the bad news but it probably isnt worth trying to replace a compressor in a system like that it would drive you crazy and take forever if it could even be done.
