Question about Kenmore 76129 Air Conditioner

2 Answers

My air conditioner will not turn on. (See below for a more detailed description.) I recently bought a used Kenmore Room Air Conditioner Model 580. 76129. It worked well for about a month (running almost continuously, usually on either energy saver or cool). About a week ago, I walked out of my room when the air conditioner was on, and it was off when I walked back in about an hour later. (The display was unlit, and it was not making noise.) The power button still does not work. The outlet it is plugged into works fine (I plugged a small fan into it). How do I fix this problem?

    Where is the relay, and how do I test whether or not it failed? I left the unit on energy saver for most of the day, set to 70. The cooling went on and off as the (indoor) temperature it displayed varied from ~65 to ~73. I set it for cool at night (the intermittent noise from energy saver made it hard to sleep). As for how hot it was, I live in Cambridge.

If you have a GFCI plug on A/C unit it may need to be reset at the plug.

AC has a relay, it sounds like it failed on ya. If the unit was on all the time, was it that hot where you were or do you mean switched from AC to fan on all day? From what you said, it sounds like the unit burned its relay out for overheating, meaning thermostat may have originally failed keeping unit on until relay popped. Careful of fire hazard.

Water in air conditioner


A lot of the newer window units design the outside fan to pickup the condensate water and sling it onto the coil. The evaporative effect makes the unit run more efficiently. They ususally don't spit, but if the unit is running well, otherwise, I would't worry about it.

Kenmore window air conditioner


Below is a link to the model that you describe. This link shows a parts breakdown and cost feature. From the parts description, I was unable to locate a customer replaceable fuse. I have never heard of a fuse inside of an a/c before but I just wanted to be sure. It appears that this is electronically controlled model, so
make sure you have adequate voltage and grounding to your outlet before you call for service.
