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!

I have had a MWK-05CMN1- b17 5000 btu window mounted air conditioner unit that i bought last year. It was only used a couple times. It never cooled down the room. And when i finally used it and relized it...

From what you are saying, it sounds like the air conditioner is a lemon.
Unfortunatly, these small room size air conditioners are not worth the cost of reapir.

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.

Can a frigidaire ( fam156r1a) 15100 btu a/c unit be recharged

Hello, yes the unit can be recharged but a piercing valve must be added to the low side of the system in order to do that. The valve pierces the tubing and then the refrigerant can be added.

Kenmore 12000 btu turns on fine but after a few minutes fans shut off and compressor keeps running this is a heat and air model

First replace fan capacitor and try, if not, bearings worn out in your fan motor. Replace bearings or motor with new capacitor.

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.
