Question about Amcor ALTL-12000E Portable Air Conditioner

Open Question

The unit powers up and the fan blows well. The green light above the cool icon doesn't light up. Every 45-60 seconds the unit seems to strain and the fan decreases it strength for about 3-4 seconds and then it returns to blowing as bed ore. The unit does not seem to be cooling well. The unit is about 4-5 years old with less than 100 hours of use. It gets used maybe once a year. It was recently used last week, cooled great for two days and then began to function as described. Suggestions?

SOURCE: fan runs constantly on cool mode

Simple Question: Did you check to see if the fan switch on the
t-stat is in ON or AUTO? If ON the fan runs nonstop. If in auto the fan cycles with the outdoor unit.
next does the fan shut off if you turn the t-stat to off?
A stuck relay should keep the fan running all the time.
Sometimes if the relay is stuck you can whack the side of the Air Handler and the connection will break.
Sometimes instead of a relay there is a stack switch.
It's a little black stack of 3 disks this is a bi-metal switch.
they do get stuck more often than relays.
The fan relay may be on a electronic board. I don't know for sure without seeing your unit.
Good Luck Phil

SOURCE: Cools for a limited time only before unit must be reset

If the unit was set up a week ago the technician should warranty his work and come back and take care of the problem for you, not knowing what was set up and how, it's hard to say if it's a problem with the unit or the control (t'stat or programming if it's a programmable t'stat).

SOURCE: air is not cold

the fact that the compressor light is coming on tells me power is being sent to the compressor.

if that is true then there is really only 2 possibilities.

1) you have a wire (or maybe 2) burnt away from the terminal(s). To repair this is fairly simple for the service tech but somewhat complex for the inexperienced, so I won't go into here - but if this is the problem you can probably (with a little expert help) fix it yourself.

2) the compressor is not starting even though voltage is being applied to it's terminals. Usually this is caused by the compressor being 'electrically open,' and there is nothing that can be done except to change out the compressor.

good luck!

White-rodgers 1f80-261 thermostat: Set to heat, "flame icon" appears but no heat and no fan. Thermo doesn't click when adjusting temperature. Set to fan,there is no fan.?


There is a 3 amp fuse in the main circuit board. If this fuse is bad ,nothing will work but because of the batteries in the thermostat it will lead you to believe that the unit is working properly,however, it is only showing you what is supposed to be. Replace the fuse and everything will work.

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.

Cooling fan temp light stays on when air condition is on. fans are not kicking on. Is it the fan module ?


I didn't know it had a light on the dash that said "cooling fan temp".
My 93 doesn't.
The cooling fans are controlled by the computer and turned on when the ac is running or when the engine reaches 220 degrees.
A mechanic would check the fuse and relay for power and the fan motor for power and ground.

Hi

This seems like a power management problem on the motherboard.

Disconnect the power cable. Remove the small silver CMOS battery for 2 minutes to clear the BIOS Memory. Reinstall the battery and reconnect the power.

Look carefully at the power lines coming from the Power Supply Unit (PSU) and make sure that no one power channel is powering an unequal load of devices. Try and divide the load as evenly as possible amonst the power lines.

If none of this solves the problem, then consider upgrading the fitted 300W PSU to one with a higher Wattage, as 300W is on the low side for current standards. 450W-500W is more typical nowadays. The higher the Wattage you can afford (up to a 650W maximum for this particular specification of PC) the better

A higher wattage PSU will work well within its capacity and therefore under less strain than the current one. The symptoms you describe could be signs of the current PSU straining at the limits of its performance range to power all the devices inside as well as maintaining the computer's heavy workload of interaction with all the devices connected to it.

I hope this helps.
