Question about Kenmore Heating & Cooling

Open Question

I have a Kenmore 580.74121300 a/c window unit. It works great but with one problem. I can set the thermostat to 74 and in 30 minutes to an hour it is reading 79 and I have to turn it back down to 74. I have to do this all day. It does not keep a constant temperature.

YOU COULD EITHER HAVE A THERMOSTAT PROBLEM OR FAN CONTROL PROBLEM.TURN THE POWER OFF AT THE FURNACE AND TAKE THE THERMOSTAT OFF THE WALL.MAKE SURE YOU MARK THE WIRES SO YOU KNOW HOW TO HOOK IT BACK UP AGAIN.RESTORE POWER TO THE FURNACE.TOUCH THE WIRES THAT WERE HOOKED TO THE R & G TERMINALS ON THE T-STAT TOGETHER AND HOLD THEM THERE.OBSERVE THE OPERATION. WHEN YOU TAKE THEM APART DOES THE BLOWER STOP?TRY IT A FEW TIMES. IF IT CONTINUES TO START AND STOP YOU GOT A BAD T-STAT.JEFF

Hi there

I think this is a setting on your air conditioner, the air conditioner will turn off when the room is at the correct temperature and when the room starts to warm up, the air conditioner will turn back on. (You need to find the settings and change them from auto-adjust to manual-adjust)

Keep us posted and thank you for using our service.

SOURCE: Furnace doesn't reach desired temperature

On the thermostat if its a manual on then pop the cover off and look for a small dial with numbers on it. Take and move it tpoi a higher number than whats it is set at. Its called a heat anticipater and is supppose to make it so that the unit does not oveshoot or under shoot like what your experiencing. If its a digital oine then you are going to have to configure the setting in the insdtallers menu.

the unit may be drawing the cool air it just released back into itself,plus the air close to the unit may be a little cooler than the air in the rest of the room.

How do I hook up remote thermostat to LG LP120CED?


Some thermostats have a five minuter time delay to protect the A/C when power fails. Some units also have a time delay, if so both must be satisfied before it will start.

I have. Kenmore comerical referigerator 253.44723100. The coils freeze. Keeps a pretty consistant temp of 43. If I defrost will work for a few days then temp climbs back up.


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You should not have to defrost manually. You have a automatic defrost cycle. Every 8-10 hours your unit should shut down for 20-30 minutes, except for the light. This is when your defrost heater turns on. Afterwards, the freezer turns back on.

The defrost heater is on the bottom of your cooling coil behind the back lower wall.

Part #: 216730700 Cost: $43.00

You also have Refrigerator Bi-metal Defrost Thermostat. Cost $27.00. At times the back of this component will pop out and fail.
25592992-wte2ibsdwpcevewvzivs5fqb-2-2.jpg You also have a defrost mechanical timer. This is located in the lower back behind a metal plate with a slotted hole through it. You can trip the freezer into the defrost mode. Taking a large screw driver turn the stem slowly clockwise one click at a time until the unit shuts down. After 30 minutes repeat this process to turn the unit back on, until you get a new timer.

Notice the slotted hole on the left.

You may also defrost by unplugging the freezer for 24 hours. Have plenty of old towels handy. Plug the unit back in and after 12 hours you will be back to your desired temperature.

How can i check defrost timer setting on kenmore side by side refrigerator freezer


Hi,

I would need a model number to confirm your unit has a timer in it. To answer this question correctly I need your model number. If you have a timer, the time you seek is continuous run time which could be 6, 8, 10 or 12 hour run to a 21 minute defrost cycle. With a model number I could confirm which one and its time.

Window air conditioner cools (very icy cool air) for a minute or two then switches to fan. Will then stay on fan for about 10 minutes and then once again get "very cold", but only for a minute or two


Before I even read that far into your post, I was thinking "thermostat" replace it...It seems to be failing badly. If you take it into logical perspective...normally the unit gets turned on, then takes a bit to get cold, then once it reaches its pre-determined temperature, turns the unit either "off" or just blows the fan...by kicking off the compressor. This unit you have is getting this cycle done within 5 minutes instead of a few hours...replace the thermo and you should be fine. Now if you could post the exact model number here I can go look up the part for you.

Compressor not turning offon my kenmore AC. Even when setting the thermostat to a high setting 75+, the compressor keeps running. The room itself will cool down to the high 60s, thermostat seems to be the...


The thermostat tells the compressor to turn on and off so i would deffinently agree that is the problem!!! Just UNPLUG!!!! the unit and remove the electrical panel,disconnect the thermostat and bring it to a local hvac supply store and they will be able to sell you a replacement then install and monitor the unit.This should fix your problem.

LG PTAC acting strange in heat mode


I believe the problem in lies in the dual stage heat mode setup on the thermostat, but the unit going into defrost does make the unit act kinda strange. Even more so than other types of equipment. I would suggest hiring a licensed HVAC service technician if the problem cannot be resolved by yourself.

Will not cool properly.


You have either a faulty thermostat, dirty condenser and evaporator or a faulty run capacitor. Need to service soon before the compressor is damaged. Sea Breeze
