Why does my air conditioner keep shutting off?

This can happen for a number of reasons, but make sure the condensing coils are clean and not obstructed by any improvements or natural things such as trees or bushes. The hot gases produced by the compressor must be cooled (condensed) by the pulling in of the ambient air to cool these hot gases and dissipate them in order to reduce the head pressure and condense the hot gases to a liquid. The appliance is designed to shut down whenever the head pressure reaches a pre determined level (to protect the equipment).

Override temperture setting on Amcor Amc-12000e portable Air Conditioner

Actually there is no way to do what you want because the unit is designed to operate when the inside temperature allows the heat exchanger to function so that it will condense the liquid refrigerant into a gas.
As far as using it in the winter to dehumidify this same applies. If it is to cold then the gas won't be able to condense back into a liquid. If I were you I would buy a portable dehumidifier but remember that if the temperature is to low it won't work.

Good luck

I got a Blue Way KYD35 portable airconditioner. Wondering if I need to keep the lids behind the unit open or closed. If I open them hot air blows up into the room defeating the airconditioning. I cannot...

Yes, hopefully it has 2 of them, 1 for removing air from outdoors rather than ejecting indoor air to the outdoors, again fighting itself in the process due to infiltration of outdoor air to compensate for the amount being ejected to the outdoors.
The old style portables were designed this way and were not optimal as they pull in warm air as they reject the hot air from condensing the refrigerant gas to a liquid.
With 2 hoses only outdoor air is used to condense the refrigerant and this same air is rejected back outdoors thereby avoiding the negative pressure created by the old single hose design.
You need to install the hose/hoses/ducts to reject the hot air outdoors at minimum.

This is definitely weird. The exhaust duct (or the connecting tube) must have came off , and you're feeling the recirculated air.All air conditioners (all) have to condense the refrigerant (cool the gas and it becomes liquid) in their condenser. The heat has to go somewhere, usually to the atmosphere and not in the conditioned space.

Unit will not run after about an hour until tank is drained -if a container is placed under the unit with plug out the unit will run like. An awful lot of water seems to come out of the unit.

Thing to remember about an Air Conditioner is it is transferring heat, so if you are in a hot humid enviroment you are going to condense more water, which will fill the tank up quicker.

If the tank has a spot to connect a hose to the tank, and you have a drain nearby, might be worth hooking a hose up.

a thought anyways on a fix

But the water is normal

Need to know if I can connect a drain hose/tube to my air conditioner model # FAX054-P7A1. I'm having a problem with water collecting in the window sill/track

Hello, the first thing is make sure the AC is tilted a bit in the window, if it is level the water will collect toward the front of the unit and drip inside. Second if there is a drain hole on tne unit then you can connect a hose to it and let it drain. However if there is no drain hole then the unit uses tne fan blade to splash the water on the condenser and since the condenser is warm/hot it will condense the water.

The fan is running and it is blowing air through the vents but its hot air. This happened overnight so I'm thinking it's not needing freon ???

The question would be, is your outside condensing unit working, fan and compressor? If not, you might have a capacitor out or a burnt motor/compressor. If everything on the outside unit is working properly, then you might have a refrigerant problem, and it can seem like it happens over-night sometimes. The charge just slowly decreases and eventually it will not condense or evaporate the way it needs to. Just some things to consider, hope it helps!

No more condense water outside, leaking heavy inside the room from the bottom of the handler

Take a shop vac and **** the pipe out from the outside. You have a blockage in the condensate pipe.

Air conditioners compressors are high starting torque motors , although it uses 15 amps running , it takes perhaps 3 times that briefly to start a compressor. Thats why in the old days the lights dimmed while the ac started etc. Air conditioners are designed to operate at 95 outdoor/ 80 indoor. The design temps are 80 air into a 40 coil gives 60 supply temp, for a 20 temp drop with each pass.
The outdoor coils are 30 above ambient so the hot outdoor air will still be cool in relation to the hot refrigerant gas and remove heat to condense it back to a liquid. Since the pressures and temps are according to ambient there isnt any way to not have the amp draw increase with load.
That said check the breaker for age and replace if not pretty, check all connections for tightness, consider dedicated circuit.
