Question about Kenmore 73259 Air Conditioner
The unit works great, cools effectively but it is now blowing small black particles out. It doesn't seem constant or even noticeable while it's on but definitely leaves a scattering over debris on the furniture and floor. It's got a washable filter that we keep clean but the the unit has not been removed from it's enclosure and cleaned in a while. There is no smoke or odor Outside the area is clear of debris, trees, etc. Any ideas what may be causing this build up to start blowing out and where it may be coming from? I have another older unit that is in another part of the house that was blowing debris about a year ago but it turned out to be an old, brittle filter that needed replacing, this debris similar but the difference is that there is no filter to replace and the permanent one has been washed and cleaned.
THe black particles coming out of the air conditioner are more than likely mould spores, as the air conditioner is an ideal environment for mould to grow. Mould spores can cause a number of symptons: from a simple running nose to migranes and flu like symptons. To rectify the system needs to be cleaned inside and outdoor system. The casing is removed and the mould removed using a pressurised system. www.protectair.com.au a company in oz doing cleaning and aerisguard.com.au another company cleaning and removing mould. Most air con business just come in and wipe the exterior and clean filters, but most systems need the scroll fans cleaned. This does need to be done by a trained technician as the fans can break. Hope this helps.

We are having the same problem, (exact same air conditioner), we clean the filter regularly, we even took the front cover off and cleaned the inside entirely and still have the same problem, cant figure it out!!!

I just took my Kenmore model 106 out of the window for the winter...while cleaning it up there was granular black material on the other side of the fresh air vent flap from the disintegrated seal there...maybe that's what's now blowing into your room. We keep our vent closed, so we haven't encountered a problem like that.

Remove the filter aand run it and see what happens, the filter still could be causing the issue
