AMCOR 14000 E PORTABLE AIR CONDITIONER BREAKER

I recently purchased an AMCOR 14000E portable AC unit. The breaker switch built into the power cord keeps tripping. It runs for approx 20 mins and then trips. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. - Phil

    Same Problem, it will cool the room, then shut off and never come back on until you hit "reset" on the plugin. Problem is, if you leave the house, you can't hit the reset button and you come home to a hot room.

If the filters are clogh with dirt , the unit breaker will shut it off ,it's avery common problem , but if after the filters were cleaned it keeps shutting off , could be a bad fan motor or the compressor itself could be grounded.

Usually its the bridge rectifier on the PFC board. I've been replacing them with MBR5010. Check it with an ohnm meter. If any of the posts are shorted, then the bridge rectifier needs to be replaced. The MBR5010 is an upgrade and only costs a couple bucks. You can also call pridiom at 2001-266-8234. They've taken over amcoraire after amcorusa went bankrupt.

I have an Amcor Portable Ac 12000 BTU and it keeps shuttig off due to condesation. I drain the unit ;but it only lasts for about 20 mins of run time before it shuts off again.Whats wrong with this?


Unit is not draining properly and only works when there is no condensate in the pan. The latter could have a clogged drain hole - check for that and clear if applicable.

I turned on the ac but the compresser did not go on


Many thermostats have a 3 or 5 minute time delay. If that is not the issue, check your breaker box. If after resetting your breaker it trips again leave it alone and call an HVAC company for service

HELP???


What was the voltage that you measured? Are the units 220 volt or 120 volt. Units that size are usually fed by 220 volts. What is the current rateing of the circuit breakers? Are they a double breaker with a handeling capacity of 20 amps or are they 15 amps.

You didn't mention if they ever worked? Are you feeding 120 volts or 220 volts to the two units?

Good luck,

Marty

I've been running my portable ac unit for the past 3 years and now the unit just blows warm air...


If the compressor is running check the thermostat, check the possibility that the gas is present and has not leaked out.
If so the pumping must be checked of the compressor , the pressure switch also must be checked.

AC runs for 5 minutes and then circuit breaker


What else do you have running on hydro while AC is running? Such as coffee maker, microwave, water heater, fridge. That 30 amp breaker is your main breaker I assume, or breaker on pole your plugged in to. Keep in mind your AC will normally draw approx. 15-17+ amps momentarily when compressor kicks in to cool, then drop back to 12-15 amps when running normal. If your AC is drawing too much current, then you would only normally trip 20 amp breaker for AC in your panel. Try switching other appliances to gas operation while running AC, such as water heater, and fridge. Make sure incoming voltage is up to specs as well . (115-120 volts)
If water heater takes 5-8 amps, and fridge takes same when they are calling for power, you'll be close or over the 20amp mark when you consider your on board converter etc. as well. That only leaves approx 10 amps for AC that requires approx 15 amps to run, and up to 20amps when compressor kicks in. If you switch all those other items over to propane, and it still happens, then a current draw test should be done on AC unit to see if perhaps a capacitor is faulty, or possible compressor faulty.
