Question about Danby DAC5071M Thru-Wall/Window Air Conditioner

2 Answers

No Cold Air

My AC is only a year old, and seems to be humming louder than it did in the previous summer season. It is also not blowing any cold air. Instead it seems to just blow in the air from outside, not cooling it at all. I have tried shutting it off and letting the motor cool, but this doesn't help at all.

It sounds as though the compressor is stalled or seized. if its seized a new will be required! If its stalled it may be down to a failed capacitor, if you have a voltmeter test for voltage at the compressor.

When shutting off leave it off for a good 24 hrs

All the best

What is going on with our Goodman unit?


If your going to pay that much just have them put in a new unit. It is not that much more and you can get free financing. All the repairman can do is guess and keep putting in new parts till it works. Had a new unit put in and it still didn't work found out it was a bad thermostat. But at lest we don't have the repair bills or high electric bill anymore so it paid for its self in saved money.

Not staying cool


sounds like it is either low on Freon or the compressor is going out. The blowing ice cold is an indicator that it may be freezing up because the low Freon. when it stops blowing cold, turn it to fan only mode and see if it gets colder again. If that is the case then the unit is low on freon and freezing up. I know that sounds confusing but that is how AC works. The low freon pressure means the gas is expanding too fast and the air flow cannot take up the cold from the evaporator fast enough. Turning the compressor off and keeping the fan on will alow the room air to take up the cold.

My first thought was low coolant, but with the added point about the ac I'm leaning toward a blend door problem under the dash.

Is it that hot in Sedona. I live in Tucson and thats hot. Have your freon recharged. You can buy the refrigerant at Checker or AutoZone. How do you like our Governor. She really made the national news.

2 year old Coleman Mach III tapping and not blowing cold air:


Make sure the condensor fan is blowing through the condensor on the roof. It sounds like the compressor is fighting high head pressures after running a bit.. After so many attepts, or if it suceeds in operating the load trips the circuit breaker.. Make sure the condensor is clean and air is passes through it from the fan. Just for clarifiication the condensor is the coil that gets hot and the evaporator is the coil yat create the cold air. Good Luck, and if you will, let me know how it turns out. Good Luck. Ned
