Question about Whirlpool Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a whirpool window a/c and heat unit. The model number is ACE184XL0. The unit is 8 years old. It no longer cools the air like it use to. The unit heats well. Do I have realistic repair alternatives? I have been told the window units have no easy way to re-charge the freon and it is cheaper to replace it.

    My ac window unit. Can I make it colder.

    U do not have control over the temperature of the air; you can control how long the compressor operates with the thermostat. A longer running time equates to a cooler room.

    Clean condenser out to maximize efficiency and cooling.

    Drum turns on a 19 year old Maytag but no heat just cool air tumble.Help, cannot afford repair or new dryer currently.

    It is most likely the heating element or thermostat, and since it is 19 years old, you might want to change both. You can go to and plug in your model number and then find the heating element and thermostat in the parts layout.

    It is not difficult to change either part - JUST MAKE SURE TO UNPLUG THE UNIT!

    Please advise heating/cooling capacity for carrier quietline air conditioner vertical through wall model 25 years old model number unknown Thanks

    Hello rgar919,

    It is imposible to tell you the capacity of the unit without some kind of numbers to find out what it is. They made more than one unit 25 years ago. The numbers off the compressor may help to find the size of the unit. Please try and find some sort of model or serial number, compressor number, fan motor number something that can be cross referenced.

    Thank you for choosing FixYa.

    The unit has never worked properly and is only a year old. It does not produce any heat. How can I resolve the problem?

    Is it giving cool? If yes, to solve heat problem, set th temp +5 degree than your room temp and mod in " Heat". If no heat and no cool means check your compressor is working.

    Window air cond unit, several years old, doesn't blow as cold

    The problem with window units and any service tech will tell you it cost more to repair than you can buy at Walmart or home depot. Unless you know someone who can charge it for you. Window units are a sore subject. A 200 dollar window unit might cost 200 dollars to charge system. SORRy rusty

    No longer cool

    If the unit is operating normally but not cooling properly than you are low on refrigerant.
