Yes, the relay on the board is bad, but you have to replace the whole board. Maybe try ebay for replacement, but most likely repair will cost close to the same or more than a new a/c

Why did my Hairer 8000 BTU portable A/C quit cooling on cool mode? It was working very well. This afternoon, I went into the bedroom, where the A/C is located, and room was not cool. When I switched t

Do you hear compresser start up noise. If so then please check it with a clamp meter and Amperage the Unit is drwing. If it is less than 8-9 Amps than there is some leakage in the AC and all the collent has leaked. So you got to get it serviced.

Air Conditioning broken - fan still works

Probably a control board failure. If the modes don't work and the fan auto/on works, I'd say the circuit board has failed. Does the fan turn on when cool is selected? If not, 99% sure it's the board. If it does, it's probably a compressor component issue. Window units are considered throw aways.

I have a Maytag window unit and i am trying to find out how many btu is has. right now it is in a small room and i want to know if it will work in a bigger size room. MODEL M6Q1OF2A SERIAL CR 264327...

that is a 10000 btu unit and a good rule of thumb to go by when 'sizing' a unit is 12000 btu for every 600 sq ft of cooling space (if the place is well insulated) or 400 sq ft (if not well insulated).
So, you have a 10000 btu unit which is 5/6th of 12000 btu - so - can reasonably expect that unit to cool approximately 500 sq feet.
In other words the room it's in now could be only - say - 300 sq feet (and well insulated) - in which case the AC unit is cooling it - well.
However, if you try to cool a 800 sq ft room - it will not work as well.
Hope this has helped.

My landlord installed this brand new out of the box. Our apt is 900 sq ft tops. This unit can't even cool down our living room and kitchen. If the whole 2 bedroom apt is 900 sq ft, you can imagine how...

The AC your landlord installed is rated at 8000 btu which is way too small for 900 sq ft. You need at least a 15000 Btu Air conditioner and a 'well insulated' house to be cool.
A good rule of thumb in the AC business says you need 1 ton (12000 btu) of Air conditioning for every 600 sq feet (if the house is well insulated) - if not - then you will need 1 ton (12000 btu) for every 400 sq feet.
So, if you have 900 sq feet and the house is well insulated you should have at least a 15000 btu unit.
If it's not well insulated you will need 24,000 btu.

I bought a ge 8000 btu portable ac unit but i don't know how to get it into cool mode it will only run when fan is on. should the same picture on the remote be on the screen of the ac unit. how long should...

mcdevito75 here, First Place the FAN on low or it may not say fan rather low cool, for 3 minutes, then the other control to 60--65 degress or 1/2 way thru the Blue indication on that control, compressor should come on. If it"s an old unit in need of service 2years old or older check out your local A/C repair shop they come to the house, also you can clean or replace the filter just under the cover where the controls are. FAN or LOW COOL FIRST FOR 3 Minutes, then Teperature to 60--65 degrees.

My LG 7000 BTU Heat / Cool Window Air Conditioner does not cool and the fan speed F1 will not work. Fan runs on F2. The heat works fine. Any suggestions?

You have a control board issue. You can get a new control board by Google searching the make and the model of the unit. There are several sites that sell them

Compressor keeps trying to start for 5 secs then shuts off

This sounds like the unit is low on freon. From the model plate you have a 24,000 btu unit. This is the minimum needed for 1100 sq ft not accounting for windows and doors. Other factors have to be looked at for a good cooling AC, where is the unit located? In the basement is good. in the attic is bad. look at all the duct work is it all metal and insulated (good) is it plastic tubing (bad). The more insulation on the duct and the better it is sealed the better. You could use more btu's but you would have to replaced the whole system inside and out. You might look for a good 12,000 btu window unit or 2 - 3 8000 btus in different rooms. Now back to the problem I think you unit is low on freon. Should be using R22, unless you have a brother-in-law in the HVAC business you will have to call a local AC company to check out and add freon. Repost if you find other problems.

Adding cloth or any other sound absorbing material will not work. There is not enough room to add anything appreciable in the fan area.
