Question about Kenmore 72055 Air Conditioner

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.

I need one split ac for my bedroom. i use ac for 5 hours a day. shpould i buy a 5 start rated panasonic ac for Rs 28000 or a 2 start panasonic ac for rs 18,000. how much electricity i will save in a year


A more relevant question is what size Ac do you need to do the job correctly. A unit too small will run too long, consume more power and not cool the house effectively, so in my opinion a complete waste of money. I suggest that you ask a local contractor or equipment supplier for a equipment sizing guide. If that is not available, perhaps obtain a number of quotes for the area that you wish to air-condition and then take an average sizing from those quotes. regards Col R digitalcontrols.com.au

Water leakage, just started using since June.older 10 yrs +_ Marty Margolis


Hi!!
Make sure unit is tilted backwards about an inch so condensed water can drain in the back. Make sure drain hole is not plugged, if so, use a piece of wire to unplugged.
AC units have to be serviced at the beginning of summer every year or at least every other year . It will be cheaper to take unit to service shop than to have a HVAC Tech come to your house.
Good Luck!!

AC not cooling during the day


Your AC cooling efficiency is low when he ambient temperature is high and naturally it cools well when the outside temperature drops.

Please remove the filter on the grill and try to clean it under the tap water and after removing all the dust fix it back to the unit. This would increase the cooling efficiency of the unit.

Your AC is also five years old. Please avoid frequent opening of doors or windows.

Ensure that the exhaust fan and the blower of your unit are functioning normal.

The technician might not have done a proper job in fixing the area where the refrigerant would have leaked out. Please check the refrigerant pressure to ensure that no further refrigerant leak has taken place. Or even servicing your unit he would have punchered the tubes resulting in very slow leak of refrigerant resulting in no cooling or less cooling. It takes around a month to feel the pinch of it and the refrigerant. One fine morning after sometime the unit will run and it would start throwing hot air instead of cool breeze!

Ductless minisplit in old mobile home


ductless mini split units are a very good choice!  they are obviously quieter, more efficient and easier to maintain than window units. the downside is the initial expense of buying the unit, but this is paid back in eletric savings and peace of mind. Good luck Peyton

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
