If its blowing air, but not cold, the compressor isn't engaging. There are many different possibilities on this.
Bad compressor, unit out of gas, bad run capacitor, etc, all could cause this, even a bad control panel.

Hope its something simple.

Why my portable af8000e av stop blowing cool air


You mean it stops cool air but still it is blowing,
1. Check your thermostate settings.
2. Check room sensor in fixed in correct position.
3. May be faulty room sensor(air sensor). Replace it.

Cool air when running; warm air when compressor is off.


It sounds as if warm outside air is being drawn back into the room when the unit is not actively cooling. Portable units depend on room air to carry the heat outside, & therefore will not work properly if the room is too airtight. Provide a makeup air passage by leaving the door slightly open, & see if this helps. Use a room thermometer to see if your desired temperature is being reached. Note that if the wind is strong & coming from the wrong direction, it may not be possible to prevent warm air drawback.

Tip

Portable Air Conditioning great portable air cooling


Portable air conditioning offers you the convenience of mobility. All you have to do is roll the portable air conditioner to the room in which it's needed. Install an exhaust hose out a window or other opening (everything you need is provided) and turn it on. The installation process for these units is very simple. These portable air conditioning units are built small enough to be very mobile and are supplied with wheels for easy movement. A portable air conditioner will also work very well in apartment situations where you will often find a window unit is unacceptable.

Portable air conditioners are very unique in that they are portable and can be easily moved to different locations in your home or business. They can be a highly effective way to either help out an existing HVAC system in one room or cool a single room entirely. They are also one of the best ways to cool a room or area without having to install a window mounted unit.

These air conditioners use a compressor and Freon to cool just like normal air conditioning. They are very effective in cooling rooms and to keep the humidity low. Like normal air conditioners portable units extract hot air that must be vented. That is why they need to have the exhaust hose to the outside. These units can cool air as well as air conditioning done with window air conditioners. However they do not require installation like conventional window air conditioners this makes them very convenient for seniors or physically challenged people. Most portable air conditioners are supplied with a window kit. This kit contains exhaust hoses that will work in any window: double-hung, casement, awning or slider. Because they vent through an opening like a window they require no permanent mounting like window air conditioning.

Portable air conditioners are a very good cooling option for those who can't use the more conventional air conditioning methods. Remember though that this type of unit is not as efficient as most window units or conventional air. So while they may make your environment cooler, it won’t turn your tent into a room at the local hotel.

So as you can see these air conditioning units have some great advantages over other types of air conditioning. They are a great alternative for unique applications where central air or conventional window units are either unfeasible or too expensive. During special events, portable air conditioning can also be a great way to keep guests or equipment cool and comfortable. Always be aware though that because portable air conditioning will remove moisture from the air, they will also need to be drained occasionally similar to a dehumidifier.

Does your application warrant a permanent air conditioner of some form or should you just use a portable one? There are some interesting things to consider when making that choice. Weigh out all of the different options and make that decision based on what will best suit your needs.

Why is my portable air conditioner blowing out room temperature air?


Make sure the filter(s) have been cleaned (Washed) and that the thermostat is set to the correct temperature. If the room temp is the same as the setting on the air con, it wont cool or heat. Just the fan will be operating.

Why is our a/c blowing room temp air when the setting is on cool?


It sounds like the compressor is not running. This could be due to a faulty thermostat, a bad start capacitor for the compressor, a bad compressor overload or simply a bad compressor. You would need a voltage meter to check all of these components.

My Continental Portable Air Conditioner only blows partially cool air and will not cool my house. I am I just expecting too much? It seems like it needs freon or something like that.


Unless your home is less than 400 square feet, total. You are expecting to much. As the maximum cooling output is only 9800 Btu's These unit's despite being portable, they are only considered as room air conditioners, because of the low Btu output. Any more than 400 and maybe 450 square, it's a struggle for the unit to cool any more than that. It just simply can not do it. Freon ( which has been banded by the EPA) wouldn't help at all.

The best option for you, is to place the unit in a room you spend most of your time in and close the doors to that room, so that it will stay really cool and the AC unit won't struggle.

I'm really sorry. I wish I had better news for you.
