Question about Whirlpool ACC184PS Thru-Wall/Window Air Conditioner

1 Answer

You can set the temp for the unit to come on and it comes on and runs and cools for a few minutes then the compressor cuts off then the fan a little later. After a few minutes it comes back on and does the same thing. It never cools down to the set temp. The coils are wet but not frosting.

Is the AC set on an energy saving mode. Together with this program if the thermostat is defective the same symtoms can appear. So please check on the thermostat and replace.
Since the compressor is cutting off the cooling does not take place to the extend that is set.

Auto/On set to ON. Fan runs.


Sounds like the thermostat, the way to verify is to unplug indoor unit, remove thermostat, take pic of wiring with phone or label the wires as to the terminals. Carefully twist the yellow,(Y) Red (R) and the green (G) together. Plug the furnace back in, if the unit operates normally, replace the thermostat. I am basing this on the fact that the blower speed is changing. This could also be an anomaly within the circuit board in the furnace section, not likely though as the outside unit (condenser) is not controlled n by the indoor board unless this is a heat pump. hope this helps.

When I turn my window unit on, it will cool for 2 - 3 minutes. Then the fan turns off and the compressor continues to run for maybe another 90 seconds, then shuts off.


Make sure the filters are clean. Check what mode it is on as well. On heating, it is normal for there to be a delay before the unit starts up and then "run on" when turned off. Also check what temperature is set on it. If the temp is too high, the machine will cycle on and off as it thinks it has already reached the temp you want.

Assuming this is a heat pump I'm guessing you have a bad temp sensor. Your outdoor fan is likely controlled by a temp sensor so it only runs as needed during heating. Fan not coming on and compressor still needs cooled therefore compressor protection kicking in?????

Air handler fan cuts on runs a few minutes and then cuts although thermostat is set to off.


your thermostat could be wired in to a energy recovery venilator which will bring the unit on for a certain amount of time every hour some thermostats have recirculate mode which will do the same thing to help filter the air

Freezer not making ice pressures -5 suction 170 head and 1.1 amps what do u think the problem is?


Hi!!

How about thermostat settings? Set it half way for freezer and one setting below for fridge, control.

Also check:

a) evaporator fan, (the one in the freezer) it should come strong on if you let freezer door open for a couple of minutes.

b) cooling fan underneat fridge and make sure air can circulate.
.
c) when compressor kiks in, should stay on for a while, if not, check thermal protection bimetal switch, (little round plastic device w/ a wire coming out of it, inserted in compressor common prong) you should be able to hear a click when it cuts juice to compressor. Check compressor temp. at cut off.

Let's work on this for right now, let me know if helpful, if not, will try something else..

Good luck
