Question about Amana Haier AP095R Air Conditioner

SkippysMom to 22yooper

Hello 22yooper,
Thanks for your answer. But, I still have to question why the unit is turning itself off a hot, humid day--it never did this last summer. And, since it's a portable unit with a "unique design" that is supposed to evaporate water (hence, no hose out of a window), why is so much water in the unit? I really do think something is wrong. Thanks again for your help!

If you stop and think about it, where is the humidity going from that evaporating water. Right back in your house maybe?

My Danby DDR606 runs hot. I have the hose direct drain into the water drain in my basement. What is causing it to get hot?


It's probably running continuously.

If so, its either set that way (or for too low humidity) or the unit is undersized for the area / humidity level. Check for sources of humidity that can be controlled otherwise, or add another unit.

Please rate 4 stars if this is helpful. Thanks and good luck!

I have a Lasko 1050. The sensor on my humidifier isn't sensing the humidity level correctly; how do I reset it, please? Thanks!


im in the suspicion that since you turned it upside down , some or possibly a lot of stored up water has gotten into the sensor section now , this might take several days of it running in what to remove and dry it all out , or might never recover as it's not a good idea to turn any item containing a gas compressor up side down , as this forces lube oils into the wrong places inside them
for the most part humidity sensors are not consumer (resettable)

Hi, my brother has a window unit which he has been running for weeks now non stop cause it is so hot here in Texas. What he says is that he is seeing the air come out of the ac..something like a vapor that...


Probably nothing wrong. If it's as hot as he/you say, the humidity level is pretty high too. The mist (if you will) that he's seeing is caused by the high humidity and the extremely high temperatures. He needs to make sure that the air intake filer on the front of the unit is cleaned or replaced regularly. That will help the AC unit to keep up without having to strain to cool. If the unit is in the hot direct sunlight for 6 hours or more per day, he should consider installing an awning over that window.This will provide some shade and help to keep the AC unit cool. Also, have your brother make sure the condensation (water) pan under the unit is draining as it should and the weep hole is not clogged.

Hope this helps. Please let me know. Thanks.

Hello Our LG HDL 65EL is not working properly. It turns on, the compressor sounds like it want to go, but the fan doesn't turn on. Is the fuse we can replace or a reset button we can switch? Or...


No, there is no fuse or circuit breaker to reset on your unit. However, there are several things r=than can cause the problem, you're experiencing:

The unit's humidity level may be set to high. Lower it to 35%

The air intake filter may be dirty or clogged. Remove the filter and clean it

The compressor coils may need cleaning.

The air ambient air temperature may be to low. Dehumidifiers don't function well between 40 & 60 degrees F.

The unit may need to reset itself. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 12-15 minutes. Plug it back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity level to 35%. Allow the unit to operate in Automatic Timed Mode, rather than continuous mode.

Make sure there is at least a minimum of 12" of clear air space around the entire unit, when in operation.

If none of the above solves the problem, the humidity sensor may have failed. In which case it should be replaced. Or the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant.

I hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

My dehumidifier compressor runs and then shuts off, then runs and shuts off, continuously. The fan continues to run. It seems to be pulling water, though it's hard to tell how much because I have a...


Part of the problem may be that you have the humidity level set to high. The fan runs constantly to move the air around. When the unit senses a humidity level higher than what you have it set for, the compressor turns ON. Once it's ON, if the humidity level is short lived, it turns OFF.

Try setting the humidity level to the lowest possible setting. Usually, that 45%. If the humidity level in you home is higher than that, the compressor should turn ON and run until either the bucket is full or the humidity level reaches 45%. If this doesn't solve the problem, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet for 12-15 minutes. Plug the unit bakc in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set the humidity level at it's lowest setting. Allow the unit to run until it cuts OFF and check the bucket for water. Hopefully that 12-15 minute time out allowed the unit to reset itself.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Joyandkyla --
Sounds like you have a Ice2O refrigerator (nice). Is it the 22 or 27 cu.ft. model? Are you sure the unit is properly leveled? If the top doors have a tendency to flop open (or closed) then the unit is probably not level (front-back/side-side). Normally, condensation should be channeled to the rear compressor evaporator pan. I live in Michigan too, and it has been very humid this summer. If you are still having problems, write back. -- SWT

Hello,

First, make sure the humidistat isn't set too high by adjusting it to the lowest humidity setting and running it again. Next, test the dehumidifier by placing it in a closed bathroom with a hot shower running.

If you don't see water collecting in the unit after several minutes, turn the unit off and clean all dehumidifier filters and coils. If, after adjusting the settings and cleaning the unit, you still don't see water collecting, you may have a refrigeration issue. This situation will have to be addressed by a qualified technician.

Take care.

Furnace not working. ok light flashing


The flashing light indicates that there is a problem. Turn off the power and then back on. Count the flashes and it will indicate the code to the problem. There will be a time pause between the flash codes. The most common problem is the failure of the hot surface igniter .

Fujitsu air conditioner - too much humidity


This can happen if the unit is too small for the room. Going by the model number I sounds like a big unit. I would also try cleaning the filters. Also set the temperature higher.

I take the time to help and answer your question so please rate me
Thankyou
