Kenmore 12,000 BTU Room Air Conditioner ENERGY STAR

The air conditioner's compressor turns off before the room is cool. When i first turn it on it will turn for about 10-15 mins and the room will start to cool down but then the compressor turns off and the fan still runs which brings in hot air after a few mins. Is it possiable that it is over hearting because it feels very very hot and I can see lots of heat waves coming off of it. I have the settings on "cool" and "auto fan"

My sharp comfort touch air conditioning 12,000 BTU FS-S125FX-A does not cool any more. It's running but at room temp.


Can work the external drive and you see that turns the fan but look at the compressor he works; logically not working if the fan brings the temperature domatiou.antikatestise external capacitor again if the air conditioner does not work then the compressor is stuck.

Hello, I can assist you.

If the unit is supposed to turn off and it doesn't, it will be necessary to check several things.


  • First, is the unit cooling properly? See the section entitled "The air is cool but doesn't seem cold enough."

  • Next, is the temperature of the room adequately cool? If the room temperature is cold enough try setting the thermostat to a higher temperature. If the unit then seems to work properly leave the thermostat set to the higher temperature.

  • If the unit is cooling properly when it is turned on and the room is not cool enough the problem is probably that the unit is trying to cool an area that is too large for its capacity. Use the following chart to find the appropriate size air conditioner to use:

AREA TO BE COOLED / CAPACITY (BTU/HR)

100 to 150 square feet = 5,000

150 to 250 square feet = 6,000

250 to 300 square feet = 7,000

300 to 350 square feet = 8,000

350 to 400 square feet = 9,000

400 to 450 square feet = 10,000

450 to 550 square feet = 12,000

550 to 700 square feet = 14,000

700 to 1000 square feet = 18,000

If the room is heavily shaded, reduce needed capacity by 10%

If the room receives a lot of direct sun, increase needed capacity by 10%

Add 600 Btu/Hr for each person in the room if there are more than two people

If the unit is for a kitchen, increase the capacity by 4,000-6,000 Btu/Hr.

If the room size is too big for the air conditioner you have two possible choices. Either decrease the room size by shutting some doors or partitioning off an area of the room. Or, increase the BTU of the air conditioner for that room by installing a different air conditioner with a higher BTU rating.
