Is the compressor running at all? During the move was the unit kept upright? The compressor cant compress a liquid so if the unit was set on one of its sides or upside down for very long the oil drained into the compression chamber and it will take an equal amount of time for it to drain back out do not try to run it until it has set upright for a day at best it will trip the overload at worst it will break a valve. Hope this was some help GL!

24 in. Wide, 18 in. Height, 24 in. Depth and approx. 112 lbs.
15,000 BTU, Parts are still available.
Unknown date(s) of manufacture but Sears (Kenmore) does have similar (exact matches) models still in production.

Does the 15100 Kenmore BTU need a dedicated line in order to not blow a fuse?


Is this a 120 volt unit? If so, you might try to find the amp rating on the unit itself. A 120 volt unit that big will have to have a circuit all by itself. Probably a 20 amp breaker, no less than 15 amp just for the air conditioner.

If it is 240 volt, it will definitely have to have its own circuit.

I am looking at buying a used kenmore 15100 btu unit model 253-355-350 that is supposedly 5-6 years old but little to no use. Is there any issues with this regarding losing some of the coolant? Does it...


This is a catch 22....this is a good unit, but I would try it before you buy. If you get it cheap enough it will pay for itself. Are there more efficient units? Yes , but at what cost? This will be a decision between long term and short term. I would get a new unit if you want long term....and short term if you just want toget by a couple years.

Kenmore Chest Freezer Model number 1987191852 has started to defrost own its own. Compressor starts and shuts down after appx 2 seconds. Has this unit reached the end? is it cost effective to repair?


Good day,
That short cycle you hear, is the compressor trying to start, and can't.
It is possible one of the start components has failed. Under a cover on the side of the compressor are either 3 or 2 components.
The start relay, the protective overload and on some models a start/run capacitor. These components can be removed by pulling them off of the pins of the compressor.
Most appliance parts houses will be glad to test them for you. Replace any that test bad.

If all test O.K. then it is an internal problem with the compressor itself, which would take the services of a trained tech and pretty pricey.

150,000 BTU propane Reddy Heater shuts off after ignition


Is there a frost line on your LP tank, if so you may need to replace the tank with a larger tank or refill your tank. This can happen if the tank your using is too low or too small (use 100 lb tank or greater). If there is no frost line it may be an issue with the thermocouple. The manufacturer offers a service manual and owner's manuals on there site. This should assist you... www.desatech.com Thank you

Is gas turned on with pilot light or electronic?


No pilot. Unplug the power to the unit and it cannot run/ignite. There is a shutoff on the valve behind the front panel if you want to turn off the gas supply without moving the dryer.

Need the BTU rating for an old Kenmore K948991 a/c


Your model number is not complete enough for a model check.
However, 18,000 btu in todays' units is what you need.

Unit will start, run about 5 seconds and


You did not state the model numbers of the heaters, so a good guess is all that I can do. Manuals might be available, but models are a must.

By your description the heaters are Hot Surface Ignitor types, opposed to the older technology spark plug heater. Right or wrong? Technology is different & troubleshooting is different.

The heaters are shutting down because the photocell is not seeing the flame, or the flame color is not absolutely correct. The photocell tells the computer to shut the heater down for safety reasons. It's going to be your job to troubleshoot and find out what's wrong.
