Sometimes storing an AC for long periods of time will allow the coolant that it uses to seep out, leaving you with an AC that seems to work, but won'tr cool any air. If you have a user's manual (or can find one) check to see what type of coolant it uses (if it's freon or something else) and if you can refill it. If you can refill the coolant, that should resolve your problem ... if not, you might be able to take it to a repair shop and have them do it for you. Good luck!

    thank you for your suggestion..I have suspected that is the problem..I'm not able to refill the coolant..I have been calling several maintanence businesses..but they don't return my call..ty for confirming my suspicions. I wish I could find someone to come and fix it..I guess the long weekend holiday has a lot to do with no one willing to come out

My kenmore 12000 btu portable air conditioner keeps switching to DH mode out of AC mode


That means that it is dehumidifying. Is the air coming out still cold? I assume you have tried using the mode button to switch it back? Is the air extremely humid? Perhaps it is humid enough that the machine needs to dry the air before safely operating as an AC. The manual is available here:

Ac repair portable 12000 btu unit will not blow cold air


Maybe you have it set on dehumidifier mode instead of air conditioning mode. That happened to me with mine too. And turn off your timer (if it has one) or it will shut off after a while and you will forget why.

Blows very cold air during dehumidify mode.


se this fact: God bless you
air conditioning system cools but does not dehumidify the room. The most common cause of inadequate dehumidification by an air conditioning system is the installation of a cooling unit which has too much capacity, or is "over-sized" for the space it is being used to cool. What happens is simple:

If an air conditioning compressor unit is oversized (too many BTUH of cooling capacity) what happens is it cools the room so quickly that the system does not move enough total volume of air across the cooling coil to remove much moisture before the room temperature has dropped to the A/C cut-off point.

In other words, an air conditioner needs to run longer, and move more total volume of air through itself to drop room humidity than it does to just cool the air. So "bigger" cooling capacity or higher BTU capacity for an air conditioning system is not necessarily better, and it can actually be a problem.

PORTABLE AIR CONDITONER MODEL#APEOIAJMI-DOES NOT


If you turned this unit on right away after you received it you may haved damaged the compressor. You should always let a rfrigeration or a/c unit sit in its up right position for atleast 12 hrs. before operating, so that pressures and oil can equalize inside the system, unplug the unit and check the wires at the compressor and make sure they are still connected, Good luck.

I have a single room 8000 btu kennmore air conditoner was making loud squealing noise when compressor kicks on and now it makes no noise and does not cool at all please help


sounds like the compressor may have died on you. the compressor isnt running you might as well trash it sorry for the bad news but it probably isnt worth trying to replace a compressor in a system like that it would drive you crazy and take forever if it could even be done.

I have a sunbeam 12000 btu window unit air conditioner. I can't seem to change the fan speed when it is in cool mode. When I put it on fan only it blows extremely cold air and i can change the fan speed. ...


Sounds like the switch is wired wrong.
When you put the switch on fan only the compressor should not run at all, therefore their shouldn't be any cold air.
Check the switch to see if it's wired right.
