Question about Amcor Heating & Cooling

2 Answers

I purchased a AMCOR portable air conditioner Model ALD12000E/EH on Mar 30 2009. This unit does not heat or cool only the fan works. When the unit was first received the heater worked fine although there was a strong odor associated with the heat cycle. I am not sure if this unit is worth the cost of repair. Can you make a recommendation?

Hi,
If neither the heat or the cooling works then there is something wrong with the compressor or the unit has lost it's freon charge. Most likely the compressor is bad because if the system lost the charge you probably would have noticed the oil leaking out...

To replace the compressor would cost too much to justify it...
The most simple way to tell if the compressor is bad would be to check and see if it is getting power when it should be running...

If it has power to it and is not running then the unit is junk...

No Power


All rechargeable batteries die if left to sit uncharged for extended periods of time. If you can replace the battery, do so.

I have an AMCOR ALTL1200E, fan works, cold air comes out when the compressor turns on BUT after 5 minutes compresor turns OFF, then after 5 minutes again it turns on, what is wrong, thanks


Sounds like the unit is cycling off on a high head pressure (condenser coil too hot). When the condenser cools, the automatic switch resets. The unit cuts off again when the condenser heats up again. Clean the condenser coil, and clear out any debris (bird's nest, lint etc.)

It is not cooling the ac part doesnt work just the fan


Hi,
There have been many problems with these units....many do not even work right out of the box...usually it is because they are undercharged or leak right from the factory.
If this is a newer unit and under warranty, return it and purchase a different brand.

If this is an older unit then a good tech. may be able to repair it, but it may cost almost as much as a new one to do so.

If the fan inside works , the unit is probably low in refrigerant , or the filter is clogh with dirt.

Amcor ALD12000E portable air conditioner shuts down every hour


Is it leaking or shutting off on the overfill?
If it is leaking you have a stopped up drain inside the unit.

Amcor 12000-E air conditioner will not emit cold air. all filters are clear and hose is vented to outside. I'm about to boil


Hi, I'm new here but have the same model. Is your A/C new? Is your "Mode" set to "Cool" rather than "Fan"? Is the temperature set below room temperature? If not it will just run as fan. Lastly is your water reservoir full? Probably not the problem as the unit will shut off. Looks like you posted this a couple weeks ago, hope you figured it out.
