Question about Kenmore 72055 Air Conditioner
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.
