Question about Kenmore 72055 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Ac not working like it used to

I have had this model for 6 years, using it for 5 summer's in MN. So not that much use in my opinion. The unit is on and there is cold air coming out, but it is not blowing very far. It sounds like the unit is on but not fully "engaging". I noticed it not cooling my apt about a month ago. Checked the filter and noticed that the coils were frozen. I turned off unit and vacuumed the filter (which I do every time the check filter light comes on) and took the unit out of the window and straightened all of the coils (w/ my finger, gently). Some had been damaged last year when I put the unit away by myself. The coils have not frozen up again, but it has not sounded like it is fully working. Help! I'm so freakin hot! I will go buy a new one, but I think the stupid thing should work for longer than it has. Thanks! Sincerely, Susan

Storing the Unit is important -it should be up-right NOT on it side, this will cause the iol to clog the lines, NOT COOLING properly could be it need a good cleaning ( with a cleaning agent and a hose ) . to do this you have to remove the case or from the sleeve, BE CAREFUL NOT TO WATER "ELECTRICAL PARTS, clean drain line ( condensation "water" will cool off the ouside coil ( candenser) the inside coil can frost up if dirty or filter is clogged.
take the Unit out and clean well. you can purchase a spray that will remove all the grease and dirt - be careful not to bend tubing. use a light spray and let it dry in the sun. When putin Unit back in the window or wall WATER MAYBE SPRAYED OUT -DON'T STAND IN FRONT OF THE UNIT - IF you can't do this, call a serice company - this job can be done in a back yard.

What is going on with our Goodman unit?


If your going to pay that much just have them put in a new unit. It is not that much more and you can get free financing. All the repairman can do is guess and keep putting in new parts till it works. Had a new unit put in and it still didn't work found out it was a bad thermostat. But at lest we don't have the repair bills or high electric bill anymore so it paid for its self in saved money.

Heat stopped and only cold air comes out of KHS1872


600.00 is extreme. And it may not fix it. I would buy a complete used unit for less, and take the motherboard out of that, or find a used motherboard.

Portable Air Conditioning unit no longer blows out cold air


Bit late I know, but for others having same issue, ensure that it doesn't need draining - use black tube at bottom left when viewed from behind to drain any excess water.

98 dodge dakota sport , air conditioning troubles


Temporary solution - I found that the pump under the hood gets stuck intermittenly from dirt getting behind the clutch assembly where the belt drives the unit. Blast the back with air then apply Silicone spray (Not WD40) to help keep things running smoother. The wiring connector gets rusted or loose sometimes as well. Also, if the dash gets too hot in the summer, the selector switch contacts don't work right and the damper under the dash gets hung up and wont open or close the air to the vents. I've been fighting this almost 5 years now. It's been in the shop 6 times - NO HELP THERE! Good luck!

Outside unit does not come on in Summer


YOUR MODEL HAS A 3-5 MIN.TIME DELAY RELAY IN THE CONDENSER CONTROL PANEL OUT-SIDE. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FIX-IT YOURSELF ... THERE I SAID IT. IT IS WIRED INTO THE 24VOLT CONTROL CIRCUIT. THEY DO GO BAD AND OFTEN. IT IS THERE FOR A GOOD REASON. IT GIVES THE COMPRESSOR TIME FOR THE PRESSURES TO EQUALIZE INTERNALLY TO PREVENT "HARD START CONDITIONS". RUUD HAS A GOOD WARRANTY ON ALL PARTS 5-6 YEARS I BELIEVE. IF IT IS THE TIMER IT IS INEXPENSIVE ANYWAY. GOOD LUCK
