Question about Kenmore 6000 BTU Single Room Air Conditioner

1 Answer

I have a window air conditioner in my living room. It runs constantly because my asthma acts up when it's too hot or muggy outside. When I went to bed last night, I had the AC on low. When I got up this morning, it was deader than a door nail! Nothing ... nada ... zip! I tried turning it on and off a couple of times, but still nothing. I'm on social security so I can't really afford to buy a new one or even have a tech come to look at it. Can you help me?

Might just be a broken wire. OR it could be a failed cap. I have a window air conditioner in my living room. - 9fc3991.jpge93a4cc.jpgIf all of that is good and you have power to the unit then either the control or the thermister is shot.

    Itty B-I-T-T-Y that is. LOL ***** must be a bad word .. LOL This manual will give you an idea of what to check in section 4. The thermister should read 1100ohms at room temp between pins 1 and 2 of the 4 prong quick connect.

    What I am thinking is the thermister might be sending back incorrect readings to the control and the control thinks it is cool enough in the room so it will not come on.

Is my portable lg air conditioner suppose to be blowing hot air out of the back


YES
it works the same as any air conditioner where if you go outside and place your hand at the fan then it will be blowing hot air
In the instructions it should say place the rear near an open door or window or use the hoses to move the hot air out of the room
air conditioner units are basic heat transfer units where they take the heat out of the room and transfer it to the outside and in the process remove the moisture from the air in the room which i turn makes it more comfortable

air conditioners are in effect heat pumps
that is they pump the hot air in the room via a gas to the outside area
when that outside are is still inside the room then that hot air is just recirculated
so if you want to heat your room the system is reversed so that you need the hot air outside pumped back into the room
the hot air is provided by the condenser which is now the evaporator in the room as the roles have been reversed so you will have to put the unit in a door way or use the ducting hoses to go out a window

Remove exhaust hose


U need that hose to direct the warm air outside the area to be cooled. If you remove it, the hot exhaust will stay in the room being cooled and negate the cold air being directed into the room.

That is why regular room AC units are mounted on window sill. Cold air in, hot air out.

Why is my appartment getting cooler ???


An air conditioner really just moves heat from one place to another. Normally there is an inside unit and an outside unit, or in the case of a window unit, half is inside the room and half outside the window. In either case, it takes the heat from in the room and moves it outside. This portable unit apparently takes the heat from one room and dumps it into another. There is no magic heat elimination - it has to go somewhere.

My frigidaire a/c is set 73fhrenheit after running for a time the temp. on the unite drops to 60 degrees by it self what is the problem ?


AC units, no matter if they are big/small, window or big central units. They will only cool the air in the room, or home, to about 15 degrees cooler than the outside air temperature. If you live in Georgia and it is 100?F+ outside, you will be lucky if the unit will reach 80?F even running all day.

Can you run the machine without venting it outside,I have mislaid my manual.


If an A/C unit is not pumping to the outside the hot air it removes from the room it's in, it acts as a dehumidifier. Without venting, the heat is just put back into the room.

More info, let me know.

The black pull out or push in button for vent should it be opened or closed while using the air conditioner unit?


Here are some factors you can consider, when YOU DECIDE:
1.) Do you need fresh air in?-- (Like venting hot, or bad smelling air?)
Then open the vent for a few minutes--

2.) Is it hot and muggy outside?-
Then yo will be bringing in that muggy air--
OK for a few minutes, to freshen up things- but not for long term--
(For the humidity from outside, is going to overload your cooling capacity quicker.)

3.) As time goes by-- you are lowering the humidity inside the room--- Opening the vent will raise the humidity inside.

Does that help?

If you are using this inside your home with central air running do you have to vent it to an outside window?


Yes, it must be vented to the outside, even if you're using central AC, too. The reason being is if you don't vent it to the outside, the hot air and humidity that normally goes thru the duct and out the window, will stay in the house and your Central AC will have to run longer and harder to overcome this rise in heat and humidity. In addition, the room that the portable AC is in, will get extremely hot & humid.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

The heat from my aircondition is soo intence that my room becomes hot rather than cold air


you need to direct the hot air coming out of the unit out of the room and the cool air into the room. You need to run a duct or tube from the condenser side to outside. Otherwise it is just recycling the air and adding heat from the compressor.

Window unit air conditioner kicks in only when its really hot out


I would consider replacing the t'stat if it does not seem to cycle at the desired temps. Also, the outside air allows fresh air to be introduced into the conditioned space but it will also effect, to a degree, the units ability to cool the conditioned space. Once you get the unit running, try it with the baffle on and closed and see which one you like. Remember, the outside air has and add humidity and can make it seem hotter than it really is in the room.
