Hi, your Windchaser portable air conditioner is not dead as you think, since the fan is still working as it should but the only problem is that it isn't cooling, then you leaked out the freon. All you need do is to get a a/c tech to refill the freon and it will start cooling back....

SOURCE: I have a faultly thermister on a Windchaser PACR10

No doubt about it. They are out of business, the phone(s) have been disconnected and their website is down.I check several parts site I have dealt with and Windchaser is not a brand that is listed , that they have parts for. I am sure there are some interchangeable parts from other brands, but how to find it, without a part number is like looking for needle in a hay stack. Your best bet, would be to take the unit to a local small appliance repair shop that works on portable AC units. One look at the part and the would know what is a substitute for it.

Hope this helped you. If it's any conciliation, you're not the only one looking for parts for this brand. Amazingly, there are some units still on the market. Probably, the retailers know they're out of business, but can't afford to eat the units.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

There is no model with that number listed on their site so it's probably a custom one, made very recently specifically for a chain of stores. In that case this one should be very close to what you have

But if the unit is an older model (as in at least 5 years), the one with rotating dials, then this is its manual

Unit shuts off, getting an E5 error. sounds like there is a lot of water inside. the customer service numbers for Windchaser are disconnected. PLEASE HELP!!!!

E5 is the fault code for Compressor overheat/malfunction it coulb be caused by the exhaust hose being too long or kinked, remove the exhaust hose and run the unit for an hour and see if your problem goes away, if so re-route the exhaust hose, if not you need to contact the manufacture

Portable Air conditioner is not starting and then stopping.

Empty the water out of the collection pan? This will shut the unit down to keep it from ruining your floors. Hope this helps 2rns4u <*{{{>(

Narrow tube v. plug and cap?

If the unit stops working and some kind of a 'water level full' indicator appears then un bend it and un plug it and then let the water drain into a bucket.  If it continues to indicate that the internal water tank if full you may want to run a hose to a drain in the floor or into a bucket to let the water drain away and the unit keep running without stopping.

be certain you have it plugged directly into a ac socket , no surge protector or gfic protector.
the main fan should have come on first then the compressor.
if not the fan capacitor or the fan is stuck.
try reseting it by
for resetting the error code. Unplug unit, clean filter, HOLD DOWN power button and CONTINUE HOLDING while plugging unit back in. Unit will beep. Unplug again, plug back in and resume normal operation

Full of water in lower tray. Normally it takes care of moister but in extreme humidity it may be necessary to manually empty the unit.
