Question about NewAir Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have an NewAir 12000H Portable Air conditioner with a heat pump. The problem is that the heat pump no longer seams to be working. The desired temperature is 79 degrees. the unit never gets above 75 degree. when it actually gets that high it because my heat from the house has turned on. once the heat goes off then the unit goes down to 72 degrees and stays there until my heat comes back on. whats wrong with the unit? is there anything that i can do?

It sounds like the actual control module, the "brain", of this heater / air conditioner has failed and can't sense when to kick on the heat any longer. Have you tried just unplugging the unit for a good 5 minutes minimum and seeing if it will help "kick-start" or restart the electronics?

I have seen many of these units go bad with this issue, and many of them only last a few months for whatever reason... I think yours may fit into that category. It is not really worth repairing, to get a replacement unit that is equivalent is around $300, and the repair would end up costing you more than that unfortunately. Definitely try the restart method mentioned though and hopefully you can get some more life out of the device.

Thanks, let me know if you have any questions or concerns, just reply to my answer here and I will be right back with you.

E2 flashing but unit is working. What is the problem. Newair AC 12000E, 12000H


If everything is working fine, I would simply ignore the false indication that something is wrong.

If it makes you feel any better you might want to check the manual for this code or go the manufacturer web site for assistance.

My NewAir Portable Ice Maker no longer makes ice. It pumps water up into the resvior but the fan motor never turns on and it does not freeze the water. Why is it acting this way?


is the compressor hot? if so, the fan might be dead. the condenser needs air flow to cool down. if the compressor doesn't even turn on, the starter coil (inside the box on the front of the compressor) may be shot.

NewAir AC-14000E not blowing ice cold air


Unfortunately there can be several reasons for your AC-14000E portable air conditioner not cooling well. As with most portable air conditioners the filter grates on the rear of the unit can be removed for cleaning. When those are removed you may be able to clean some portion of condenser coils. There is also the possibility that your portable AC has a refrigerant leak in the system and will not be able to cool effectively without a repair (which usually costs as much as a new portable AC). Portable AC's are not designed to be recharged and operate on a sealed refrigerant line so even finding someone able to repair it may be a challenge. Your best bet is contacting the company you bought it from and talking through some solutions, they most likely have experience with these units and should be able to help you.

My NewAir ACP-1400/H air conditioner freezes up. I have cleaned the filter and check the air flow. Everything seems good, but it still freezes up.


Its sounds like a refrigerant leak from the factory if you just got it. Check your warranty and call the manufacturer for repairs. Unfortunately there is no simple fix.

Loud rattle in a new newair ac-1000e bt


Buy some 1/2 thick rubber pads and put it under the unit, I am assuming it is on rollers or has feet. This should eliminate some of the problem

The Newair acp 1400h puts out a lot of heat and the manual says not to extend the exhaust hose. Is there any way to extend the hose so that I can exhaust where I want to?


The longer hose will increase the heat in the room and that is why they recommend the short hose…addition to that it may overheat…if you are going to extend the hose you must use one as the dryer hose that insulated and fire proof…let me know if that help

NewAir AirConditioner on "Dehumidifier" Mode Only


I have a 3 ton a/c system that removes about 5-6 gallons of water from the air per day. Most portable dehumidifiers/air-conditioners rate at approx 1/2 to 3/4 of a ton. Your water output is pretty much normal.

Newair mod# ACP-1600E/H Series


Because it's not a heater. Don't ask me why the thermostat goes to 90, probably because it's an import from a country with no quality control. But I haven't found any supporting literature that says it operates in anything more than cooling mode. You can split the case and see if there's a crossover valve (where three lines go into a sideways cylinder with a solenoid on one end) near the compressor which means it's a heat pump or if there's an electric heating element near the evaporator which means it's standard heating. If so, then get back to me, but if not, you only have an air conditioner.
