The portable AC units have a limitation when it comes to cooling a larger area, Since the unit is meant mainly to be focussed to an area it cannot be compared to the split unit or the window unit where we have the heat exchange exitting into open air. In the indoor unit the heat exchange also happens inside the room contributing to the reduction of efficiency. i would like to advice you to keep the unit closer to the exit or window. try to reduce the area by a false curtain and see if the result is good. Also make sure your filter is clean and the water is drained off.
If this makes a diffference reduce the thermostat settings to allow it to shut off and start again to prevent blocking. The AC should work bettter. Good day

Hi.. I have a defy upright freezer.. it is currently displaying an error "c2 !". Defy say this is because of the change in outside temp. Is this true, how long is it supposed to last? Many thanks.


If unit is not in a controlled environment yes temp will be confused and will take 24 hour to correct but if outside temp is changed it will do again and again all units designed for controlled temp room not outside in garage or out buildings with no heat or cooling controled room

Are you sure it's a heat pump type? If so, there is a valve in the outside unit that may be stuck or not getting power from the pcb. Give it a tap and see if it changes over

For Samsung Air Conditioner AW25ECB7 how long should compressor on/off cycles last with outside temp 80 to 95 degs f.?


Hi,
That depends... the relationship between the size of the unit and the load...meaning size of the room and heat gain...are always variable, so there is no way to tell you what you are asking...
If the unit is too small for the amount of space or the room is poorly insulated then the unit may never shut down...

Where can I get a manual for my Emerson Quiet Cool Room Air Conditioner? Not sure the model, but these #s were on outside of box: 10DC93 784040B OE21M N14421, is on a little sticker on the right...


Let see if I can help. The numbers don't come up so we'll just try your information.

Exhaust - should be closed when using for Air Conditioning
Energy savings turns the fan off with the compressor when set for Air Conditioning
Fan Only means just that (no Air Conditioning)

Fan speeds Quite same as low, Norm same as medium, Super same as High
Temp settings, what the thermostat senses before cycling compressor.

Can i us a wall mounted air conditioner to build a small cool room for chilling lamb


Hi, correct me if i am wrong, but you want to use a wall mounted a/c to chill Lamb or other foods? Well, air conditioners are considered De-humidifiers, and medium temp. units, so if you cleaned out this room and put in the right materials on the walls and ceiling, you would have to maintain a safe temp 38*F and use this product as I am not sure what the shelf life would be? Check the sq. footage and get a unit more than large enough to maintain this temp. I know on a walk-in Refer, health inspectors want these boxes to be maintained at 38*F, and you can't accomplish this without modern refrigeration equipment. To chill it for a short time, maintain that temp and keep for you're own use.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Haier 9000 btu; not able to set temp


Setting temps on a Wall unit or a window unit - depends on where the Unit is in the room ( area), the stat in the unit is reacting to the the return air ( at the Unit) . If the Unit is not large /small enough then you will have a problem - 1. To Cold near the Unit and to warm the further away you are from it.
2. If the Unit is facing a wall to close, the unit can short cycle ( entire room will be warm). Dedending on the room and heat load - check and see if the Unit is the proper size. " to much of a good thing " is bad - not enough maybe to ( not cooling the area properly). #3 Control is defected ( age of Unit ? )
was not given.

Carrier heat pump: aux heat does not seem to work


The unit is probably to small for theare you are trying to heat.

When the Aux HT light came on that meant the heat pump could not keep up with the demand for heat. (Probably due to extreme cold, or undersized unit.)

If yu have heat, then at least one heat strip is operating. If you have multiple heatstrips, one or more could be malfuncioning.

Or it could simpy be to cold/to small fr your area and not able to keep up.

How many square foot are you trying to heat?
What is the outside temp?
What is the inside temp?
What size unit (BTU output) do you have?
