Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a Hotpoint Mac 161 air conditioner. We've had it for one year. Now it won't blow air out the front, on any setting. On fan only, nothing happens at all. On cool, the air blows out the exhaust. Whats the problem?????

Yeah i had the exact same problem except yesterday it all of a sudden went 'pop' with an orange flash inside it followed by shorting out the electricity in my place. I suggest not leaving it alone while it is operating like that.

I range up Hotpoint today and they were more than happy to replace it. Infact, they just took the unit (and left everything else here, including the remote, etc) and gave me a new mac 161 (with all the new stuff) within 2 hours of ringing! Their service was great.

When I press the button to change the speed of the fan it does nothing, and continues to blow at one speed and it is just about equivalent to the speed of the slow option...any ideas why? Also it will run...


Is it new? There may something wrong with the electronic circuit board not allowing other fan speeds. Try unplugging it for a while and try again. There is a temp sensing bulb somewhere on unit most likely on front where hot/warm air from space enters unit. Make sure you are not recycling cold conditioned air back onto sensing bulb.

The compressor is stopping on overload. There is either a weak breaker or an electrical problem causing the overload to open the circuit and stop the compressor. It has to be taken apart to determine what is or is not going on.

Let see if I can help. The numbers don't come up so we'll just try your information.

Exhaust - should be closed when using for Air Conditioning
Energy savings turns the fan off with the compressor when set for Air Conditioning
Fan Only means just that (no Air Conditioning)

Fan speeds Quite same as low, Norm same as medium, Super same as High
Temp settings, what the thermostat senses before cycling compressor.

Kenmore 8000 BTU A/C runs, but won't blow air


Sounds like a problem with the fan. There maybe something caught in it. If you had it stored is an outdoor environment then some wildlife (rodents) may have nested in it. You need to remove the cover and do a visual inspection. If nothing is caught in the fan then try turning it by hand and see if it spins freely. Some units have just 1 motor that turns the evaporator and condenser fan blades; others have 2 seperate fan motors.

Air conditioner fan runs outside but won 't blow cold air in house. It's 78 in there. The unit is only 3 years old.


is any air coming out? check the fan. then the evaporator coils in the furnace plenum. see if the condensation drain is plugged. see if the coils are iced up. is the thin tubing very warm? if not, you may be low on refrigerant.
