Question about Royal Sovereign ARP-3012 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Have the Royal Sovereign ARP-3012 Air Conditioner for over year. Last week the condenser stopped kicking in. The fan will still work, but when on the cool setting you can hear the condenser try to start, struggle for about 3-4 seconds then click off. 1-3 minutes later it tries again, same story. Left it off, reset, plugged into a different outlet, let run only with fan. Is it a power issue? Is the condenser probably shot? Trying to figure out what the "likely" problem is so I know whether it's worth my time and money to repair.

I've had the same problem. I assume that the wind, from outside, blew off the lower blower flan blades. The pieces that came out when the AC kicked shows that the fan blades are only held by one end and stand on a disc like candles on the outer rim of a cake.

It's the only plausible explanation I could find since there is nothing else that could have gone into the fan the break it.

Check Eric Olson's solution, it's very well detailed:

Do I ever have to add water to this unit?

Absolutely not! This unit will take the water out of the air (warm/moist) and cool it with coils full of Freon (cold/dry) and pass it back into the room by way of the fan! I recommend you find the manual and read it thoroughly as a guide as well!

WERE CAN I GET A COOLING FAN has a good number of parts available at low prices. You probably just need the blower wheel as they frequently break. It's only $10 + about 6 for shipping.

How many watts does an ARP-3012 draw?

Assuming you are in the United States....

This unit should work fine on a 15 amp circuit assuming there aren't several other loads on the same circuit.

You didn't say what the BTU was for you unit, but there are about 3.41 BTU's per watt. Multiply the btu rating of your unit by 3.41 and then divide by 115 or 120 (your house voltage in the U.S., use 220 for Europe) and that number is the amps.
