I have an AMCOR ALTL1200E, fan works, cold air comes out when the compressor turns on BUT after 5 minutes compresor turns OFF, then after 5 minutes again it turns on, what is wrong, thanks

Sounds like the unit is cycling off on a high head pressure (condenser coil too hot). When the condenser cools, the automatic switch resets. The unit cuts off again when the condenser heats up again. Clean the condenser coil, and clear out any debris (bird's nest, lint etc.)

When i turn it on it shuts off and the power button flashes red

Sounds like the condensation pan is full and the float switch is shutting the unit down. I just encountered this issue, there is a small pump that usually prevents the pan from filling up by pumping the condensate over the condensor and evaporating it, either the pump has failed or the humidity is too high and it can't keep up.

No cooling and no air going out the exhaust

COULD BE THE motor froze. Usually the same shaft does the cool side and the hot side does either fan spin freely. Have to admit oil usually doesn't fix it longterm

I bought an amcor 12,000 BTU portable AC two years ago. I used it for a month, never used it last year, and then tried to use it yesterday and it is dead. As in, there's no response when I push any...

When a sett is kep unused for sometime the possibility of faults can vary as when it is in regular use.The best way for a first hand info is to trace the line of power fromthe controller unit to the compressor.Check the line to the compressor, if the control panel is faulty, check compressor relay, check capacitor.
Since it is failure of power, it can also be a wire break.

I have a big amcor portable a/c which i think isnt blowing as cold an air blast as when i first got it. can it be recharged like a car a/c?

Assuming the filter is clean then you may have to open it up and clean both the condenser coil and the expansion coil, they are probably dirty. It is a job you'll want to do outside with a garden hose. The pressure you use is a matter of experience so you don't use to much force from the hose and bend the fins on the coils. The coils need this cleaning done from time to time as it is just part of normal care.
No recharging is needed as the system is sealed and should never leak, contains no high pressure refrigerant hoses that can leak with age as does automotive air conditioning, yes our cars are made different because a lot of flexing and moving of said parts occur with an automobile.

No power to portable air condition

If the filters are clogh with dirt , the unit breaker will shut it off ,it's avery common problem , but if after the filters were cleaned it keeps shutting off , could be a bad fan motor or the compressor itself could be grounded.

Amcor 12000-E air conditioner will not emit cold air. all filters are clear and hose is vented to outside. I'm about to boil

Hi, I'm new here but have the same model. Is your A/C new? Is your "Mode" set to "Cool" rather than "Fan"? Is the temperature set below room temperature? If not it will just run as fan. Lastly is your water reservoir full? Probably not the problem as the unit will shut off. Looks like you posted this a couple weeks ago, hope you figured it out.
