20 Most Recent Windchaser PAC9 Air Conditioner Questions & Answers


It probably is not worth trying to salvage it, which is the reason you received a refurbished unit. It would really depend on what is wrong with it. Unless you are trained to handle refrigerant, I would recommend you not trying to mess with the compressor.Unless it had a leak, it should be under pressure, which could hurt you if you attempt to open it up. As far as the rest of the system goes you may use parts off of it to make repairs on the refurbished unit, should the occasion arise, providing it is the same model.

you should have two wires that go to a capacitor for turning the motor the right way durring start up then you should have two wires for run current. Now my motor has red and blue as the run voltage and blue and a white wire to the capacitor -6uf+/-10-5%@250AC. This cap is mounted on your fan shroud and refer to you top motor wire configuration, as both blower motors is in like the same wire colors to cap. Now my lower motor keeps blowing the thermal fuse and dose not overheat as the thermal needs at least 360 degrees of heat to blow yet my moter when running is not that hot.... I would replace the motor and cant seem to find one where did you find yours.

This company is out of business, so the parts are not currently available. However many people have visited lowes or home depot and managed to rig up a fix that works sufficiently.

make sure its not obstructed, then wrap it up with a towel or other insulative material. it heats up because the heat exhausts through that hose out the window.

If it's a major manufacturer of appliances you can use any parts supplier like, 1st Source Servall, All Appliance Parts, Marcone. If it's a off brand you have to go back to the manufacturer for there local supplier. Just Google the name and model number. Good luck

Check the pressures in the system as there may be a problem with the high/low pressure switches that is causing the compressor to stop working to protect the unit. You may be getting liquid on the piston tops and this is causing the compressor to lock up. Over supply of gas will cause this problem.

Sadly this company seems to be out of business, parts unavailable. You can get a little creative and make the pieces you need from off the shelf parts at lowes. I used a plastic pumbing fitting, some vent hose, two small metal brackets, zip ties, and thick foil tape to seal it.

E7 is often tripped when the unit gets clogged with dust and dirt, causing the unit to work harder. Unplug then open the cover and vacuum the evap and condenser to clean tem thoroughly. Use a toothbrish and windex to clean the evaporator if necessary. Drain the unit and reassemble. You should be all set.

the bottom blower in a PAC9 is the blower motor that sucks room air in through the bottom vents of the unit through the condenser. this air removes heat from the condeser and is blown out through the warm air vent duct. A common failure on windchaser units is the 'bottom blower squirrel cage' which is a plastic fanblade.

Sadly the company is out of business and parts are unavailable. If you are handy with electronics you may be able to remove the button panel and unstick the affected button, or replace it with a new microswitch.

Inefficient cooling is probably caused by a dirty unit. Unplug and remove the entire rear cover and carefully clean both radiators with a vacuum cleaner. Thick sludgy dirt can be removed with a toothbrush and windex. Flushed with water. After you drain the unit thoroughly, reassemble and run in fan mode for awhile to let it dry out. You should be all set.

Sadly the company is out of business, so you will have to get a little creative like I did. I got what I needed at lowes, some flex duct, a pvc pipe fitting, small metal brackets, zip ties, thick foil tape, a piece of plywood for the window part, and some paint. Good luck.

I used a Plastic plumbing fitting, attached to the ac unit with a small metal braket. Sealed it wth thick foil tape. Sadly the company is out of business and the original flange connectors are unavailable.

Drain the unit, sounds like the condensate tank is full.
