SOURCE: Window AC takes spells on cooling?

One thing to check is to make sure the evaporator and condenser coils are clean. Any dirt here will short ccle the compressor.

SOURCE: hello, I have a Kenmore 580.75124500 ac/heater

It is probably the compressor. You will need to check if the compressor is being called to come on. Do you hear the compressor running? If you do, I would remove the unit from the wall or window, and wash it down real good with a hose being careful not to get the electronics wet. If not and the unit sound different than it did before, it's probably time to buy a new one.

SOURCE: my frigidaire window AC is not cooling anymore

Does it get cold? You can try cleaning the fins-both inside and outside, with windex. Smoling & cooking will create a sticky deposit that will make dist that gets through the filter stick and it won't cool properly.
If it doesn.t get cold any more, try replacing the starting capacitor. About $5. If that doesn't take care of it, just replace the unit. They are cheap enough these days, that you can replace a unit with a more energy efficient unit for the same cost or less as a repair would cost.

Override temperture setting on Amcor Amc-12000e portable Air Conditioner


Actually there is no way to do what you want because the unit is designed to operate when the inside temperature allows the heat exchanger to function so that it will condense the liquid refrigerant into a gas.
As far as using it in the winter to dehumidify this same applies. If it is to cold then the gas won't be able to condense back into a liquid. If I were you I would buy a portable dehumidifier but remember that if the temperature is to low it won't work.

Good luck

Why can't a Haier chest freezer be put in garage?


The only problem that you might have is with the coils and the flux capacitor. If you clean the coils, it should be fine.

Eugene, first, let me say, yours is one of the best narratives, of what is happening with your ,that I have read in a long time. You didn't leave me guessing as to what was going on.

I believe one of the problems is that you may be operating the AC Cooling & the Dehumidifier at the same time. If this is the case, the dehumidifier is generating heat, when it's operating and the AC cooling side is working at a lower rate, because the dehumidifier is in operation. Discontinue the use of the dehumidifier on extremely hot days and use only the AC Cooling mode. The AC mode also acts somewhat as a dehumidifier. That's why draining the water tank is required for AC mode too.

I would also be prudent to check the exhaust hoses to make sure they are not clogged or have been bent out of shape. Keeping the air intake filter clean is really important, too.

Aside from the air conditioner, other things can be done to help cool the room. Close all drapes or blinds to block the sun from directly heating the room. This is especially true, if the AC unit is sitting in direct sunlight. If you have a ceiling fan, operate it it as fast as you can stand, in a Clockwise direction. This not only keeps air moving, it also helps the AC unit and creates a windchill, that fools your body into thinking it's cooler than it really is. Personally, I have been doing this for years and have saved a ton of money on electric bills during the summer.

I hope I have been able to help you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Kenmore 54501 Dehumidifier. Just plugged it in today and it runs but no water is in tank. What could the problem be? It worked great last summer and was not plugged in all winter.


You may have the humidity extraction level set higher than the humidity level in the house. Lower the level to 32 to 35%. Also, remove and check the air intake filter for dirt or clogs. Clean if necessary.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

The dehumidifier is running but very little water is going into the tank. I cleaned the filter, long overdue, and it didn't help. Everything seems to be running well. I also have the room humidity level...


I have the same problem, just started it after not using it for the winter and it runs and runs and no water. I believe the coolant has leaked from the sealed system and there is nothing you can do. I've had it for 1 year and it has a 5 year warranty. I know from experience, this is the 3rd dehumidifier that I have had this problem with, all different brands. Call for service, I am betting you have not had it very long.

You can test it out by disconnecting the power cord, wait five minutes and plug it back in. If it retains the original settings you are good to go. If you are wondering before purchasing a new unit ask before you buy.
