Whirlpool selector switch reassembly

Dear Sirs:
I need to reassemble a selector switch (airflow and contol switch) for my Whirlpool air conditioner model AC1002XS. It is the switch that selects the functions of " high cool / low cool/ fan only/ off ". Several websites show exploded diagrams for the selector switch for the newer models of AC1002XSO and AC1002XS1 which do not match my selector
switch.
My original intention for disassembly was to rotate the circular plastic
wheel from the "off" position to the ''high cool" position since the knob and stem were accidentally broken off. But, after removing the brass face plate
from the switch, two metal pieces fell out. Each piece is 1 7/8 long by
3/16 wide and the thickness of a business card. In the exact middle of
each piece is a channel or a speedbump , depending on which side you
are observing. I speculate that these might be some kind of spring clips,
but I can''t find any slots in which to insert the ends.
Please advise me on how to reassemble this switch.

Thanks,
Joe Gracki

    Whirlpool no longer makes a replacement switch for my air conditioner , so "buying a new switch" is not an option.

    I reassembled the switch without the two metal pieces that fell out, and found that the air conditioner works just fine without them. Apparently they were not essential parts.

I have a new 5 ton Grand Aire A/C. It seems to take much longer to cycle than my old unit did. Also my plenum is sweating in my attic? Is this normal? Any Suggestions?


sounds like poor airflow if unit is same size as old equipment and duct work is sized correctly you can try raising fan speed if using a pleated type 90 day filter switch to fiberglass non-pleated type filter that restricts less airflow. Also check return air for leaks you could be introducing unfiltered hot air from attic or enterior walls.

Where is reset button located on whirlpool split ac front panel? (Mastermind series chrome). Though I cleaned my filter the "filter" light is still glowing and hence i need to reset it but I am not finding...


Look at your remote carefully. There is a bal pen type push to reset filter button on the remote. Depress the rest button and it should reset. Also on the contol panel you can also reset it by depressing the mode and the UP temp arrow buttons for 5 seconds.


Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Broken on/off switch handle


you should be able to source it at a local appliance store. If you feel compfortable doing so, shut off the power, mark the wires, remove the switch, write down the model and serial number of the unit from the nameplate and take the switch to the appliance store to verify a match, reassemble in reverse. hope this helps
