THERE IS A TUBE OR CHANEL FROM THE FRONT EVAPORATOR DRAIN PAN THAT RUNS TO THE BACK OF THE UNIT INTO THE CONDENSER PAN. IT IS ALWAYS ADVISABLE TO THOUROUGH LY CLEAN ALL COILS, AND DRAIN PANS AND DRAIN LINES ANUALLY. IF THAT TUBE OR CHANEL WAY GETS PLUGGED IT WILL CONSTANTLY DRIP IN THE COOL MODE.,

IF YOUR A/C IS 110V MOST ALL ARE ABOUT 5,000 - 7,000 BTU''S ALL SHOULD RUN ON A SEPERATE CIRCUIT OR NOT HAVE ANYTHING ELES PLUGED IN ON THAT CIRCUIT.

MOST ALL WINDOW UNITS HAVE THE BTU'S RATING ON THE TAG INSIDE THE UNIT. THESE SMALL UNITS REQUIRE COMPLETE REMOVAL FROM THE WINDOW OR WALL FOR CLEANING. ONLY LARGER UNITS 10,000 AND ABOVE SLIDE OUT OF THE CABINENT FROM THE FRONT.

90% OF A/C I HAVE REPAIRED IN 40+ YEARS WERE DUE TO PLUGGED DRAIN LINES A DIRTY COILS. THEY MUST BE ALL CLEAN BEFORE I COULD START TO DIAGNOSE ANY PROBLEM BECAUSE THE PRESSURES VARY IF THE COILS ARE RESTRICTED WITH DIRT, ETC.

SOURCE: how large a room does a 10,000 btu air conditioner cool

What size unit do I need for my room? Use the following chart to find the appropriate size air conditioner to use:

AREA TO BE COOLED / CAPACITY (BTU/HR)

100 to 150 square feet = 5,000

150 to 250 square feet = 6,000

250 to 300 square feet = 7,000

300 to 350 square feet = 8,000

350 to 400 square feet = 9,000

400 to 450 square feet = 10,000

450 to 550 square feet = 12,000

550 to 700 square feet = 14,000

700 to 1000 square feet = 18,000

If the room is heavily shaded, reduce needed capacity by 10%

If the room receives a lot of direct sun, increase needed capacity by 10%

Add 600 Btu/Hr for each person in the room if there are more than two people

If the unit is for a kitchen, increase the capacity by 4,000-6,000 Btu/Hr.

Just adjust the thermostat lower or colder!

It is possible the cover needs removed and the condenser coils are in need of a good cleaning. (the one in the back that is outside).This assuming the compressor is running and it has not developed a leak and lost the coolant charge. Eric

SOURCE: Air conditioner isn't cooling the room

hi there,
insufficient cooling have several reason,most common factor is low freon charging due to service factor,defective thermostat control,dirty evaporator and condenser fin,try to check the current rating using ammeter clamp tester if the rated current read in tester below the rated current on tag(compressor)
you need to charge freon,if the fin and evaporator is dirty need to ve clean,if the thermostat is not functioning replace thermostat.
also consider the main defective if the aircon is running chck the compressor if it is running by touching the tip of screw driver to the top body of compressor you can feeel vibration,if compressor is not running yo don't have cooling effect only blowing of air.on repairing this this should be done by a certified aircon technician,have a nice day fix my rate,thank you very much.

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 Continental Portable Air Conditioner only blows partially cool air and will not cool my house. I am I just expecting too much? It seems like it needs freon or something like that.


Unless your home is less than 400 square feet, total. You are expecting to much. As the maximum cooling output is only 9800 Btu's These unit's despite being portable, they are only considered as room air conditioners, because of the low Btu output. Any more than 400 and maybe 450 square, it's a struggle for the unit to cool any more than that. It just simply can not do it. Freon ( which has been banded by the EPA) wouldn't help at all.

The best option for you, is to place the unit in a room you spend most of your time in and close the doors to that room, so that it will stay really cool and the AC unit won't struggle.

I'm really sorry. I wish I had better news for you.

It is 106 degrees outside, I have a a/c unit which is cooling at 75 degrees in a 1180 square foot townhouse apartment, this seems like the unit is doing all it can with the excessive heat, is it


Unfortunately, 7000 Btu's will not cool 1180 sq ft. At best, it's rated for 400 sq ft, as it's only rated as a "Room Air Conditioner". To cool 1180 square feet, you'll need at least 30,000 Btu's (like in Central Air Conditioning) or 4 more window units spread out throughout the condo. It takes more Btu's to cool, than it does to heat.

I really sorry. I wish I had better news for you. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Need to know what I should pay for a used one of these models


Don't really get a clear idea of what you are asking, I assume you mean a window mounted unit.

The answer is... it depends. Not only does the cost of a used window mount air conditioner vary with condition, but also with the BTU rating and its energy efficiency.

A 12500 BTU window mounted air conditioner, in good working order (enough to cool up to a 400 square foot room on a sunny day with average insulation would probably be a fair buy in the neighborhood of 75-140 dollars if it was a fairly recent model. If it is over 5 years old, I wouldn't buy a used one. These things are made cheaply for the most part, they are installed over and over again year after year, if you take care of them they can last a good while, however most people don't get a great deal of time out of them without some sort of issue arising.

I live in a very small one room studio,and have a comfort aire window unit...air and heat.The heat works real well,but in the spring and summer,I would set the unit on the coldest setting.I can hear the...


Lets look at the output of the system first. Take your square footage of the area you are trying to condition and times it by 15. We try to get 15 Btu's per square foot of air conditioning. If your area is say 10 by 15, you have 150 square feet; times it by 15 = 2250 Btu unit is required. If you have a 5,000 Btu unit, it should be more than enough to cool the room. If this is correct, the problem may be because you have the unit set for Dry. In Dry mode, the compressor will cycle less frequently than if on Cool. If in fact the unit is on Cool, you may need to lower the temperature setting to fool the sensor from turning off the compressor prematurly. If you still can't cool the area, your unit has an issue with either refrigeration or air circulation and will need to be serviced.

I need an idea of square foot coverage


There are more factors than sq ft. You have to factor in window surface and R factor of insulation.

Hello, I can assist you.

If the unit is supposed to turn off and it doesn't, it will be necessary to check several things.


  • First, is the unit cooling properly? See the section entitled "The air is cool but doesn't seem cold enough."

  • Next, is the temperature of the room adequately cool? If the room temperature is cold enough try setting the thermostat to a higher temperature. If the unit then seems to work properly leave the thermostat set to the higher temperature.

  • If the unit is cooling properly when it is turned on and the room is not cool enough the problem is probably that the unit is trying to cool an area that is too large for its capacity. Use the following chart to find the appropriate size air conditioner to use:

AREA TO BE COOLED / CAPACITY (BTU/HR)

100 to 150 square feet = 5,000

150 to 250 square feet = 6,000

250 to 300 square feet = 7,000

300 to 350 square feet = 8,000

350 to 400 square feet = 9,000

400 to 450 square feet = 10,000

450 to 550 square feet = 12,000

550 to 700 square feet = 14,000

700 to 1000 square feet = 18,000

If the room is heavily shaded, reduce needed capacity by 10%

If the room receives a lot of direct sun, increase needed capacity by 10%

Add 600 Btu/Hr for each person in the room if there are more than two people

If the unit is for a kitchen, increase the capacity by 4,000-6,000 Btu/Hr.

If the room size is too big for the air conditioner you have two possible choices. Either decrease the room size by shutting some doors or partitioning off an area of the room. Or, increase the BTU of the air conditioner for that room by installing a different air conditioner with a higher BTU rating.
