Question about Midea Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I am thinking of buying a low btu portable air unit. A lot of them call for a single circuit. What does that mean? Most of my circuit breakers are labeled for a whole room. Would I have to re-wire? I have a 5000 btu window air-c & it works ok.

Hi,
This means that they only want one outlet on that circuit, the one for the A/C....but if you are only running the A/C on a circuit and nothing on the other outlets you will be okay...they just do not want you to overload the circuit and cause a fire...

Outside unit turns on and runs for a long time by itself then shuts off. Does this all day an night long. Notice this after a circuit breaker tripped. Not breaker to unit though. Other parts of house.


You have to try resetting the system. First turn the breaker off for the condenser and wait about 20 seconds. After you turn it back on the system should reset. If you need any other Air Conditioning Repair help. Check us out online.

My PAC CN120E was working fine until the outlet that is above it started to smoke. I plugged it into another outlet and red lights came on but quickly disappeared. Can you advise if the unit is blown out,...


I cannot tell from which country or area of the world you are, but in the USA, your 12,000 btu a/c unit would take a special plug and electrical circuit in many homes or apartment, because it is so large.

Today, most circuits are protected with a 15 amp circuit breaker, which can usually handle only a 5,000. or 6,000 btu unit. The next size up it often a 7,500 unit, and that is a lot for a 15 amp circuit .Some older homes have a 20 amp circuit breaker, which can handle up to a 8,000 btu a/c.
Before you start a fire in your house, have an electrician check all this, and see what is going on.
One reason I am talking about such small a/c units it that usually, household electrical circuits have other loads on them besides the a/c.
Be blessed.

This is a sears kenmore plasmaire. just stopped running. electric sockets are fine. could this be the switch or the cord?


If it is a 240volt air cond. be sure to reset both circuit breakers. They will be side by side and may be joined together

If it is a j120 volt unit, it will be on a single breaker, make sure you don't have a lot of other lights, etc. on the same circuit or the breaker will get hot and trip continually.

Only other thing I can think of for you is make sure the unit thermostat is not turned up to a temp higher than the inside temp. Hope any or all of this helps you. Mark

I just purchased a souleus 12000 btu portable air conditioner. The unit works fine but keeps tripping the circuit breaker in my apartment. What causes this and can it be fixed or is it just the wiring in...


First, you need to determine what, besides the Souleus, is on that electrical circuit, and whether the circuit is 15 or 20 amp.

12,000 BTU A/C's tend to pull 10-12 amps, and they can peak just under 15 when the compressor starts. So a new, right off the shelf unit will max out a 15amp circuit. An older model with a worn out starting cap will demand even more amps at compresser startup.

Everstar portable ac 10000 btu


The everstar 10,000 BTU unit will require a dedicated 115 V 15 amp circuit. if there are other things pluged into outlets and running from the same breaker then the 15 amp breaker will trip. Or, these units also have a GFCI plug adapter. Be sure it has not been tripped due to an improperly grounded outlet, or wet location.

. Fan or Compressor will not come on


it sounds like you may need a circuit board, the clicks are genrally the relays on the board calling for the components they control, it is possible for the contacts to "burn" open and not provide a path for the electriciaty to the compressor and fan., the capacitor is fine and the tolerances are +or- 10%

Circuit breaker

Happy to assist,

HOW MANY BTU IS THE AIR CONDITIONER?
And is it 110 or 220 line!

If it is using 110 or 115 volts like normal house current and it throws circuit breakers in your electric box,then you need to run a dedicated line just for the Air Conditioner!
Usually this happens to 110 -115 volt air-conditioners that are more than 12,000 BTU and do not have a dedicated electric line in the wall only for the air conditioner!

New air conditioners have a circuit breaker built into the units plug!
And I have seen some that throw that breaker to off frequently even if it's only an electric surge! Which it should not do!
if its the case and it's new, take it back to the store and ask for a different model, size, or brand!
Fedders had an 18,000 BTU/ 110-115 volt unit that did this with every single unit last year! I stopped selling that unit only!!
