Question about Royal Sovereign Portable Air Conditioner

1 Answer

I have a Royal Sovereign portable AC Model ARP1000 ES. Last summer I heard a loud bang and then it sounded as if the fan blades inside where hitting against the insides - like it had fallen off what it was secured to. It will turn on just fine, but it sounds like a mac truck after something fell off inside. Any thoughts on this?

Hello, have you opened up the umit? It could be the fan blade loose on the motor shaft.

    This is happening to me too. How do I open up the unit. I have tried and it only seems to open up the front.

Have the Royal Sovereign ARP-3012 Air Conditioner for over year. Last week the condenser stopped kicking in. The fan will still work, but when on the cool setting you can hear the condenser try to start,...

I've had the same problem. I assume that the wind, from outside, blew off the lower blower flan blades. The pieces that came out when the AC kicked shows that the fan blades are only held by one end and stand on a disc like candles on the outer rim of a cake.

It's the only plausible explanation I could find since there is nothing else that could have gone into the fan the break it.

Check Eric Olson's solution, it's very well detailed:

Model arp-900e wont start keeps popping breaker

Sounds like you have a short or a groud in a fan motor or compressor motor. You can unhook one component at a time and turn it on after each component is disconnected to figure out which one is grounded.
