Question about Kenmore 76129 Air Conditioner

Does the 76129 Kenmore Air Conditioner have a reset button

This air conditioner was running perfectly last week. All of a sudden, the unit stopped working. Can you please advise if this model has a reset button? Also, will cleaning the filter get it to work again?

I can be reached at mbodner@consolidatedmerchandisers.com

Thank you!

If the display/control are not lighting/no power & unit will not turn on, the problem is likely the main power control board part number 6871a20271a. The board runs $40-50. However, if you are competent with a soldering iron, you can replace the integrated circuit chip [black rectangular 8 pin component marked TNY266PN] which I have found to be the cause of at least my problem.

The component is approx $1.50 [buy several, it WILL fail again] available@:

We have a Sears Kenmore 2537015600 that just quit working, will not power up at all. Is there a reset method on this unit or do we need to buy a new unit.

There is no reset button on this unit that I have located. I don't think cleaning the filter will help since you could just set the unit to run without the filter.

My Sunbeam air conditioner has always flipped the breakers in my house (old wiring), but it worked fine for two summers and then sat last summer. This summer it blows the breaker constantly and in the...


This is a good question to ask. 1. if a unit trippes a breaker its for 2 reasons. A. to protect the wiring from catching fire . B. to protect you from electrical contact with ashort condition. Before you buy a new unit I would recommend you fix the wiring as bad siring is ******* the unit and costly to operate due to load resistance. Also replace any breakers that are unsed to support this unit. Brealers go bad esp if they have been problematic in the past. I am not certain as to the size of the unit you have now but if it cooled the room well then replace it with a match or a bit bigger unit.
As to why it tripps the breaker now? could be a couple thing Bad wiring like you state. weak breakers as I pointed out. or a bad compressor or fans. Or in my view its most like a combo of all the above. Hope this helps let me know.. Jon

Air conditioner was working great suddenly STOPPED working...cant turn it back on.


Hello
Is there a reset button located near the plug? If so reset it.

Check your circut breaker for the outlet its plugged into also.

If your using a remote to start this unit check that the battery is good in the remote,it may only work with a remote.

My air conditioner will not turn on. (See below for a more detailed description.) I recently bought a used Kenmore Room Air Conditioner Model 580. 76129. It worked well for about a month (running almost...


AC has a relay, it sounds like it failed on ya. If the unit was on all the time, was it that hot where you were or do you mean switched from AC to fan on all day? From what you said, it sounds like the unit burned its relay out for overheating, meaning thermostat may have originally failed keeping unit on until relay popped. Careful of fire hazard.

Unit will not turn on


I have two of these units (actually it is my sister and brother in law's) but they come to me to fix stuff.
Last year they came to me with this unit not working. No indication of power on the display. I diagnosed it down to the PWB Assmebly, Main. I believe they are referring to it as a Power printed circuit board (part #6871A20271A). The new board worked for about 4 months and then quit in the same manner. Also, the second unit quit in the same manner also indicating the circuit board is bad.
I don't want to throw a board at it till I know why they are burning out. Also, want to try to diagnose the board to component level ($33.28/board last year). Let me know if this helps if you have the same symptoms?
You can replace the board but my experience says it will only last for a short time till we find the real cause (Sears must know this problem exist).
