Question about Kenmore 72055 Air Conditioner

Temperature display and "Cool" light flicker and click

When I turn on the air conditioner the temperature display and "COOL" light flicker and I hear a clicking sound. Nothing else. But the unit will run in "FAN" mode just fine. What is wrong with it? Does it need freon?

It has an electrical problem, first. You (and I) won't know about needing freon until the compressor is running.

Why does it just blow cool air?


Check outside condensing unit. Should feel warm to hot air blowing out of the top. If cool to outside air temperature blowing off you likely have a refrigerant problem

How can I use my air conditioner to heat up the room?


If it's doesn't have a heater built into it (most do not) it is only designed to cool. Turning up the heat knob on it or digital display will ONLY make it cool to that temperature. Time to buy a space heater.

I have a 2010 30' cougar travel trailer, we have never used the air conditioner which is a coleman mach model, when I put it on auto and cool it blows cool air but never gets cold am I suposed to


Check the temperature of the air coming out the vent If it's more than 10 degrees below the air going in it's ok. If it's the same temperature, the condensing system may be not working. The compressor may just be a quiet one!

Hi,
The problem here is the compressor.... it has failed and will not start. You can try to replace the capacitor and see if it will go but most likely the compressor is toast. I t will cost more to replace it then to buy a new unit.

I just received this air conditioner. Set it up


It sounds like you have a faulty unit, that has a bad built in thermostat. I'd suggest sending the unit back for a replacement, or get a refund, & buy another unit. What you may think is the compressor kicking in, might just be the blower fan. Try raising the temperture as high as it will go, & see if you hear a noise change to quieter. If it does get quieter then the compressor was in & is not working properly. Send it back.

My Duo-therm Brisk-Air by Dometic rv ac wont cool.(The fan runs )


Usually just listening closely will give you a rough idea where to look for problem. When you have the fan on and switch to cool, (with temperature turned down low obviously) do you hear any type of "moaning" sounds from AC unit, or see lights in RV dim slightly indicating that compressor is trying to engage? Is the breaker tripping when compressor tries to engage? Do you hear a "click" from AC unit when switched to cool? If none of that happens, then I'd start thinking thermostat, or compressor relay. Normally if it's a faulty capacitor, the compressor will try to engage but will make a "moaning sound" and usually trip the breaker due to excess current draw. Someone experience in electrical should be able to test relays etc, but whoever does work on it, should be aware that those capacitors, as well as hydro in general are very dangerous to work with. The ("zap",- Shock) that you can experience from a capacitor or hydro, can be fatal.

Air compreser not turning on. fans are blowing but when you turn to cool the a/c wont engage.


Either a problem with thermostat, or perhaps faulty start relay for compressor. Do you hear a "click" or a slight "hum" or both when switch to cool?

Just clicking is all your getting from ceiling assembly? No other modes work such as fan, or furnace? If that's the case, check your circuit breakers to make sure it didn't trip.

No A/C


It seems that that the overload of compressor is tripping on and off, either your compressor overload is defective or the compressor itself
