Question about Fedders A3X05F2A Air Conditioner

1 Answer

After approx 16 uses, I removed it from the window & stored in at the bottom of my closet. When I installed it the following summer, the unit wouldn't turn on. I checked the power etc, all fine. What could possibly have caused a basically new AC to die?

Hi, all it said was after 16 uses you stored it in your closet. When you re-installed it the next summer, you were cut off? I bet you were going to say it didn't work. Let me ask you this, did you happen to lay it on its side for any time at all? If you set it on end or on its side for the winter, it will never run again. What happens is the oil in the compressor mixes with the freon and runs out of the compressor. When you install it, the compressor has no time at all for the oil to return to the crankcase and you have a burnout. If this is not the problem, could you write me back and explain what has happened for me so I will know what to do? I thank you for this. If I was right, then the unit is no good, and wouldn't be worth replacing the compressor compared to buying a new one. Please let me know.
Sincerely,

    I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT IF YOUR AC UNIT HAS BEEN PLACED IN A POSITION OTHER THAN THE APPROPRIATE, UPRIGHT POSITION, THAT BEFORE YOU EVER TURN THE UNIT BACK ON THAT YOU MUST HAVE IT IN THE UPRIGHT POSITION AND LEAVE THE UNIT OFF FOR ABOUT 24 HOURS SO THAT THE OIL CAN GET BACK DOWN TO THE CRANK CASE WHERE IT BELONGS....IF THIS METHOD IS NOT DONE BEFORE STARTING UNIT THAT IT WILL BURN IT UP!!!!....IT'S BASICALLY THE SAME PRINCIPAL METHOD FOR AN AC WINDOW UNIT AS IT WOULD BE FOR A REFRIGERATOR THAT HAD BEEN LAYING DOWN AND THAT YOU WOULD HAVE TO RETURN IT TO ITS STAND UP POSITION, THE CORRECT POSITION OF COURSE, AND LEAVE IT UNPLUGGED FOR ABOUT 24 HOURS BEFORE PLUGGING BACK IN....THIS GIVES THE OIL AND COOLANT TIME TO GET BACK TO THE PROPER PLACE...

Get rid of the old stuff,too big to be used
Newer unit can't be inside the old sleeve as you call it

Just install the new unit how you see fit, to seal
it up

5000BTU is too small

A 7,200,8,000 or 10,000 BTU is the same size & about
the same price.

Although I know it is not recommended, I have no choice but to plug my AC into a surge protected power bar/extension. I have done so for the last 2 summers, no problem. I take out my AC to install, last...


The best thing I can tell you is, that Danby does not recommend it. Even an extension cord is not recommended, unless it is a 14 gauge and no longer that 6 feet.

Several questioners in the past, have used a surge protect power bars and ended up frying the electronics of their AC units.

But, in the end, it's up to you.

I have a Haier Commercial Cool air conditioner, model CPRD12XC7, 12,000 BTU that has 2 hoses off the back and is made to be vented thru a window. I want to install it in a closet with no windows. Can I...


Mark, the two hoses serve different functions (Fresh Air Intake & Hot Air Exhaust). Therefore, they would have to remain separate. Also, Haier does not recommend extending the length of the hoses, to accommodate a specific change in installation. And yes, they can be vented through a wall to the outside. But, you would need to use something similar to a clothes dryer vent termination on the outside. Most exterior dryer vent terminations have insect screening and a flap door that opens when air from the dryer pushes it open. This would be fine for the exhaust hose, but not the Air Intake Hose. I guess if you could carefully remove the flap door. it could be used on the Air Intake hose. Also, keep in mind that the unit requires a minimum of one foot air space clearance off the back of the unit, for proper air circulation around the unit. If clothes will be hanging in this closet, that may present an air circulation issue.

Hope this helped you, please let me know. Thanks.

Details dimensions of clothes washer for the bleends at the back for ducting porpose.


Factory-supplied
equipment
There is a packet of accessory parts supplied with your washer. Check that all the accessory parts supplied for your model are there. If any parts are missing contact
your dealer immediately.

Inside the drum

Water drain hose.
A bag which contains
Covers to be placed over the holes for the transport bolts (after removing them).
Clamp for drain hose.
Wrench for levelling.
Elbow for attaching the drain hose, e.g. to a sink.
Depending on the type of connection, the following may also be required

Y-connector (can be obtained from any hardware store) in case there is only a cold water
connection available.

Any residual moisture inside the drum is due to the final testing which every washing machine
undergoes before leaving the
factory.

On the rear of the appliance

from Siemens Customer

How do I replace the back window?


Remove the black vinyl trim from the edge of the glass. Remove broken glass & urethane adhesive from the metal pinchweld leaving a thin layer (approx 1/16") of urethane for new new urethane to adhere to. Vacuum broken glass. Prime nicks to the metal to protect from rusting (also insuring a good surface to bond to). Attach vinyl reveal molding to glass (unless it's a "T" shaped push in type - it would install after the glass is set). Clean and prime the replacement glass. Apply new urethane adhesive. Set glass in place.Slide the metal joint cover in place on the molding (at bottom in the center). Clean outer surface of glass. Allow for safe drive away as noted by urethane manufacturer.
