We've had this unit for several years without a single proble and now, suddenly, it only blows warm air. I figure it needs Freon but have no idea how to do that and can't get any appliance repair person to even take a look at it.
Shad roof leaked water on my unit The window air condisner will not work there was water in the plug in and I am not sure if the water is in the front section of condition Please help with this problem would changing the plug be the answer I am looking for?

Re: Samsung window air conditioner
Freon or R13 is no longer allowed to be used in air conditioners because it attacks the ozone layer when it escapes.
There are heavy fines for intentional release into the atmosphere.
If an engineer was to replace the gas with a legal refrigerant then he would want to collect and flush any remaining gas for safe disposal and change the rubber seals in the pump etc. Apparently the new gas will attack the old type seals.
I was going to get the aircon recharged in my Mazda RX7 but it would have cost about £300 because it had the old gas but then we had a rubbish summer so I didn't bother.
It all seems like a money making excercise especially considering the huge amounts released before 'Green Fever' swept the world.
There is however a 'drop in replacement gas' which is compatible with the old seals and remaining nasty gas. It usually contains a leak stopper and flourescent dye to help find where any leaks remain.
Try typing DROP IN REPLACEMENT FOR R12 REFRIGERANT in a search engine or a popular internet auction site.
You can then recharge your own aircon for a fraction of the price after a bit of study.

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.
could be several things...if all is working/blowing and its clean inside & outside with a clean filter then more then likely it's low on gas/freon......if you continoue to run it it'll pobly ice up/freeze......also make sure you hear the compressor running as well as the fan blowing. sometimes this can be tough listen for that deep rumble/humming sound thats the compressor.
It sounds like the compressor is not coming on. It may be the thermostat. Take the metal wire with the fat end, make sure not to kink the wire, this is the sensing bulb Warm it in your hand. If you hear a click it works and you need a new window unit. They cost as much to get fixed as a new one. If the thermostat does not click then that is the problem.
Most of the problems that arise with a window A.C. unit are from the "front", and "rear" coils ,or the filter at front are dirty. When the unit is on,the air is sucked in at both coils,and should be cleaned yearly. The front coil,and the filter are easy to clean,but the rear coil can be difficult.After checking the front, with the on cool, go outside and put your hand at the rear coil and feel if there is warm air blowing out.If not, your rear coil is probably clogged.Note:Do Not use high pressure hose to clean the coils,please.
The problem with window units and any service tech will tell you it cost more to repair than you can buy at Walmart or home depot. Unless you know someone who can charge it for you. Window units are a sore subject. A 200 dollar window unit might cost 200 dollars to charge system. SORRy rusty
