Question about Amcor Heating & Cooling
I have an amcor cf14000e unit. why does it not cool down to the temperature I put it out. for example if it's 90 degrees outside and I set it at 65, it will not go below 70. And it takes approx 4 hrs for it to even cool down from 80 to 70 degrees in a regular size room with the door shut. The water tank is empty. I have only had the unit for 2 yrs. How long does a compressor normally last?

HELLO .. HOPEFULLY YOUR UNIT SLIDES OUT OF THE A/C HOUSING, IF IT DOES REMOVE IT. (THERE MAY BE A FEW SCREWS HOLDING IT IN PLACE USUALLY BEHIND THE FRONT GRILL) PUT DOWN SOME OLD RUGS FIRST AND HAVE SOMEONE HELP YOU SLIDE IT OUT. GET OT THE GARDEN HOSE AND SPRAY NOZZLE. PROP UP THE FRONT OF THE UNIT SO IT DRAINS TO THE REAR. BOTH THE EVAPORATOR COIL AND CONDENSER COILS SHOULD BE CLEAN. YOU WILL NOT SEE DIRT ON THE OUT-SIDE OF THE COIL ... IT WILL BE ON THE INSIDE HIDDEN BY THE CONDENSER FAN BLADE. BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO BEND THE FAN BLADE WHILE INSPECTING OR WASHING. BE EXTREAMLY CAREFUL TO COVER THE MOTOR AND ELECTRICAL CONTROL BOX WITH PLASTIC BAGS TO ENSURE ALL ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS STAY DRY. FACTOID: 90% OF AIR CONDITIONERS THAT "DONT COOL AS WELL ANYMORE" IS DUE TO DIRTY COILS. THERE IS ALSO A TUBE OR CHANEL THAT DRAINS THE WATER FROM THE EVAP (FRONT) COIL TO THE BACK OF THE UNIT. THAT CONDENSATE WATER IS SUPPOSED TO ACCUMILATE IN A SNALL RESEVOIUR WHERE THE SLINGER RING ON THE OUT SIDE COIL FAN BLADE PICKS IT UP AND HELPS COOL THE HOT CONDENSER COIL. SOME OLDER UNITS MAY NOT HAVE A SLINGER RING AROUND THE OUTSIDE OF THE BLADE. NOW ... MAKE SURE YOUR OUTSIDE FAN BLADE IS CLEAN. AS WELL AS THE INSIDE BLOWER FINS ON THE "SQUIREL CAGE". NOW THAT YOUR UNIT IS CLEAN AND YOU CAN SEE CLEARLY THROUGH BOYH COILS, GO AHEAD AND OIL YOUR MOTOR. CHECK TO SEE IF YOUR FAN MOTOR HAS "OIL CAPS" USUALLY THEY ARE AT THE TOP OF THE 2 ENDS OF THE MOTOR. IF THERE ARE CAPS REMOVE THEM AND USE A STRAIGHT WEIGHT (NON-DETERGENT OIL). SOME WINDOW A/C'S UNDER 12,000 BTU'S ARE SEALED UNITS. IN THAT CASE YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE UNIT FROM THE WINDOW MOUNTING BRACKET. AND FOLLOW THE SAME PROCEEDURE AS LISTED ABOVE. GOOD LUCK AND STAY DRY.

I don't have the book for this particular unit but, check the sequencers that control the electric heat mode, as the regulator heat pump works good. The part may have a time or temperature delay that is too long for you. Also if it has a remote thermostat, check the heat anticipate setting. You will have to check the installation manuel, but its usually .6 to .8, but I don't think that is the problem.

It sounds like your sensor failed. You'll need to disassemable the unit to find and replace the sensor. Chances are it's just a 100 OHM sensor and it cost about 10 bucks to replace. Do you have the manual and does it have a schamatic?

If your filter is dirty you need to clean it or change it. Also check the condenser it might also be dirty and needs cleaning. When was the last time you changed your filter?
