Installing an 24,000btu air conditioner. The original wiring at that outlet has an double pole 20amp circuit breaker. The old air conditioner that was their was plug into an outlet box that sat on the face...

yes your ok if they say the unit doesn't need to be changed in the incomimg power from 208 up to 230 volts or vice-versa,normally they classify motors as120/208/ 230 /460 volts, instead of 120/240/480 volts,but all line voltage varies in this voltage range between 230 to 255 volts a.c. with a +10/-10 percent tolerance either way,and as long as the instructions dont say anything about changing motor connections your good to go, just look on the motor body if possible and make sure theres no wiring diagrams to change voltage,but i would say no in a package A/C like that, and as far as the current goes your good with the 20 amp tandem pole breaker,let me know if i can further assist you. thanks

My kenmore 12k BTU window unit will not turn on and behaves the same way as if unplugged... no sign of ''life.''

Hi, check house panel circuit breakers or fuses, check receptacle/outlet. if you got plug/receptacle, check for reset button, press reset. if there's power at receptacle, could be faulty circuit board. good luck

It has no power. the green light on the plug does not come on. i tried resetting it, and changing power outlets.

When you say you've change the power outlet I guess you mean the socket on the wall, and if am right then check the circuit breaker from the main consumer unit it has tripped and you need to reset it.

Moved a/c to another window and wont work

Check your outlet wiring. The polarized outlet has a narrow slot and a wide slot, and a ground hole, of course. Anyways, the narrow slot should be hot. If you put a voltage tester lead into the narrow slot, and the other lead into the grounding hole, you should read line voltage if the grounding hole is grounded properly. If you test the wide slot to ground and get line voltage, you have reversed polarity and must swap (reverse) the lead wires in the outlet to correct the problem.

Power cord

The unit may be drawing more current than the outlet can withstand. Also check to see if the chord is secured and properly installed. The outlet itself may have a loose wire so check to make sure it's good. Otherwise it could simply be the reset switch is burnt out and will keep tripping no matter what. Replace if neccessary. Hope this helped.
