Kenwood Central Air Conditioner

This is an old model we think possibly 25 years old. It will run perfectly for some time, suddenly stop and will not perform. It has been an excellent Air Conditioner, and we are not in a position to buy one at the moment, but would like to know if because of its age it is worth us having it serviced.

    I have a Panasonic Inverter microwave NN-ST477 which has stopped heating food. It stops after 20 seconds and an error code came up which I think was H67 or H97 (not sure which).
    Is it worth getting fixed or more cost effective to buy a new microwave? It is about 6 years old. If it is the magnetron what is a ball park figure to replace the magnetron? Thanks, Eric

Have you ever removed the unit from the window and cleaned the condensor (back of unit) and evaporator (front of unit)?

If the unit runs normally, no ice formed in evaporator and compressor suction or the unit is cold during operation then the system is normal.
- Check if the condenser is clean.
- Check if condenser fan motor work properly, check if the rpm. is normal.
- Check if the compressor amps. is normal.
- Check for out of range sensors/ thermostat.
- Check if the unit control is operating normally.

Well it is according to what part of it is not working. Recently I had to replace my blower motor in my central heat and air. It cost me 150.00 for the motor and I uninstalled it and installed it myself. I do business with a electric motor repair shop and they new exactly what it was and where to get it without going thru a shop or dealer. We went back with a heavier one that should give us many years of service.

You dont just add "GAS" to an a/c. First thing to do is to trouble shoot the unit!! When you turn the thermistat clock wish is it clicking ?? if not maybe its bad or open. If it is then turn the thermistate all the way to the left, turn on the A/C to cool. Then slowly turn up the thermistat and see if you hear the compressor comming on and staying on?? If you dont and you will if its working then you have a bad start cap or a wire is burnt off one of the terminals or the click-on inside the wireing cover is open.. Now if it starts and shuts off it could just be a capacitor or even the compressor its self. Iv'e use window shaker type a/c and repaired them for years in NYC and seem some really old ones that were condistion as these older units have copper cooling coils(eveporators) and copper exhaust coils(condenser coil) in the back and the front of the unit. Now days most manufacturers use aluminum coils and I think there garbage as they dont hold a charge for a long peroid of time and they glue them together. so remember thid\s when your looking for a replacement unit as it wont last but a few years if its aluminum!! Good Luck

Frederick, If it work but you don't have a cold air, its look like you should add Gas. In case it doesn't work at all, it could be a problem with the power switch or in most of the cases it cause a capacitor that should be replaced. Any of these repairs shouldn't be expensive (check costs with the technician). My opinion is not to replace a good horse !

Start the unit and press the remote control at C if the display in the unit displays C, then turn off the unit using the remote control and plug out the ac supply. Plug the unit again and using the remote control turn on the unit. If the E4 still display there is something wrong with your air in sensor or the main board itself. Replacement of this parts needs a qualified technician.

I have a GE central air conditioner model

If you are talking about the indoor fan it is probably a bad capacitor. Replace the fan motor capacitor. And YES, if the fan motor needs replacing too, you can DO-IT-YOURSELF.

Weather king central air conditioner

You have done a good job under the circumstances. It could be a bad start/run capacitor as well. It carries a lot of amperage so I suggest hiring a technician to check the capacitor and the motor.
