Question about Kenmore 75050 Wall/Window Air Conditioner

2 Answers

AC changes temperature by itself!

I purchased from Sears via internet a Kenmore Model #580.75121501 window unit air conditioner, 12,000 BTUs.  When I go to bed at night I set the unit for 70 degrees, but during the night it changes itself to 74 degrees.  Sometimes I've woken up in the middle of the night not as cool as I like and find that it has raised its own temperature, so I reset it to 70 degrees, but when I wake up in the morning it has again changed itself.  I do not have it set to "energy saver."  Any idea what might be going on?

Same problem but it's not a Sears. Very annoying. Last night I woke up 3 times to reset from 76 back to 72. Earlier this summer it went from 76 to 82! I changed the fan speed to medium. That was the only change...so Im going back to high speed. It has done this since we bought it several years ago.

If it's not some sort of built in economizing feature, someone else isn't getting up and changing the temperature while you are asleep and the air conditioner fairy is playing tricks, then the control PCB is in need of repair and will have to be repaired through a sears authorized repair center.
I am a bit surprised that it will allow you to set the temperature to a low 70 degrees as this is pushing the limits of an air conditioner. They tend to freeze the coils at around that temperature.

    Kenmore air conditioner


    Kenmore Air Conditioners: Brand Reputation and Who Makes 'em?


    According to the Sears archives, there never was an actual Kenmore, at least not a manufacturer by that name1. So how to explain the fact that one in five U.S. households owns an appliance with that brand name prominently displayed?
    It goes back to 1927, when Sears first established the Kenmore brand for a washing machine. The idea caught on, and Sears ended up using the brand across the board (as recently as 1977 bringing out the Kenmore version of a refrigerator - made by Frigidaire, which is owned by Electrolux2). In an interesting flip-flop, the core brands of Sears: Craftsman, Kenmore and DieHard, first gained their reputations because they were sold by Sears; then, when Sears itself suffered a loss of market share, the brand names were separated out as having a value all their own.

    In 2007, Sears "sold" their three killer brands to a shell company and then licensed the names back to Sears3. The point? Two, really. The first was to protect these valuable brands should Sears go bankrupt. The second was to generate revenue from the intellectual property. This is why Kenmore is sold at, for instance, K-Mart, even though the product name used to be reserved for Sears alone.
    So who makes Kenmore AC?

    Because the name is licensed by Sears, there are no set restrictions on who could make the products. Sears is free to purchase from whomever they like. According to Consumer Reports, the manufacturing arrangements change all the time4. Currently, Kenmore air conditioners are made by at least three different manufacturers for Sears: Whirlpool (Fedders), Electrolux (Frigidaire), Keeprite, LG and Friedrich.

    The only way to actually tell is to look at the model number and decode it. Information on how to do so can be found here5.

    Why does it matter? It matters because Kenmore air conditioners come at a premium. The brand name is leveraged, along with Sears reputation, into something consumers value as a better product. It also matters because one item under the Kenmore brand may be excellent, while another item (made by a different manufacturer) may have problems.

    Savvy consumers will examine a Kenmore model number, determine the real manufacturer, and then investigate buying the item directly - sometimes at a substantial savings.
    Products

    The window air conditioners (sold at Sears and K-Mart) range in price from $100 to $600 dollars and have a good reputation. Most of these (at this writing!) are made by LG, a South Korean manufacturing group6 (the LG stands for "Lucky Goldstar"). They have a good reputation, but this may be one case where buying an extended warranty is advised. At this price range, consumers who seek a warranty fix are likely to get a new machine rather than just a repair. In either case, if a store-based warranty is offered, this should be considered (rather than a manufacturer's warranty).

    For a single room, window installation, the Kenmore brands are not all energy star rated, but this is to be expected at the lower prices. The major complaint is shared among similar discount window units - noise. Proper installation will help avoid this problem.

    All of the Kenmore air conditioners are window installations; however, they can be adapted to a through-wall configuration. Sizes range from their lowest priced ($100) unit, the 5,000 BTU model. This is rated to cool a 10 ft by 10ft space. At the opposite end of the spectrum is the 25,000 BTU, single room air conditioner, at about $600.
    Kenmore Central AC

    As mentioned above, the name Kenmore has a value. Consumers recognize it and generally think well of it. For this reason, Sears extended the use to a line of professionally installed central air conditioners. They also market under the Carrier nameplate.

    These units come in standard sizes and use existing ductwork, either for cooling or heating. They are installed and serviced by technicians under contract with Sears. Reading some of the customer comments, this seems to be the main source of aggravation7. While consumers appreciate the 10-year warranty offered by Sears (in addition to manufacturer's warranty) they find getting good service a problem.

    The reason for the failure in the repair and maintenance department seems to be a reflection on who Sears contracts with to do their installs and repairs. Because Sears doesn't have an in-house repair operation (they aren't a manufacturer and the volume doesn't justify it) they contract out to local businesses. This makes it essential for anyone purchasing a Kenmore central air system to not only evaluate the product, but look into whatever company will be installing and servicing the unit. It isn't possible to blame Sears across the whole nation for complaints due to local service technicians.

    The best advice, gathered from the professional HVAC forums, is to choose your installer with as much (or more) care than the system installed. This is especially so because Sears is actually a middleman between several manufacturers and the consumer. Only an experienced HVAC technician will be able to see past the nameplate to the value underneath.

    What is the btu of this model.m7q08f2a.


    Hi, to find out the tonnage of your unit in b. t. u.'s, look at the 08 in your model number. There are 12,000 btu's per ton of cooling. You have a window /wall unit, and according to the model # 08 is not a 1/2 ton or a 1 ton, but a 3/4 ton unit or 8,000 btu's if indeed this is the correct model number. Most units we come across are in btus as 06 which is 1/2 ton, 12,000 is 1 ton, 018 is 1 1/2 ton and on up with a properly matched indoor coil. Your unit is a package window unit, so both coils are equal.
