Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Thank you. I have an 11 year old Kenmore 8000 BTU window unit that has served me well. I am remodeling my apartment now and would like to have a service and maintenance check on this unit that might include making the outlet cord about 3 feet longer. I think the grill behind the filter has gotten a little smashed in places, should this be fixed? It?s working fine and I don?t want to spend a lot of money. I can take it in somewhere if that helps on the cost. What say you?


Answers :

Take it to a hvac shop and tell them what you want! or just telll an electrical shop what you want in the cord length---to straighten out the fins n the front coils with a fin coil brush at a hvac supply house,and remove the top/ side cover and fully clean the inside unit, drain lines--both front and back coils---on both sidesan oil the fan motor....TYVM!

We have a lot of Fujitsu a/cs at work and the remote controls get swapped around. One remote doesnt work with an a/c. The same model remote from another room will work so it is not the a/c unit. Are the remote controls paired with the a/c unit? Do I have to do something to pair it to this a/c? Pressing the reset button on the remote control doesnt fix the problem. The model number is AR-RY3

Hi... We had a new weatherking a/c central unit installed last July...It doesn't work now...the a/c repairman said the coil that supplied the freon broke which then "fried" the compressor? So all parts relating to this have been replaced, still not working. Could it be we were given a less than perfect unit? Our Carrier worked for 13 years with little problems-but the a/c man liked Weatherking....what do you think? Thanks for your help! jan

This is about a 15 YEAR OLD Trane XE1000 30,000 BTU A/C unit. The A/C was not working, but right after I called to have someone come fix it, it started working again all by itself. When the unit was not working (for about 18 hours). The house got up to about 80 degrees with the thermostat set on 70. When the HVAC tech got here (next day), he told me the compressor is shot because the thermal limit switch inside the compressor is overheating. The area where the thermal switch is getting warm, but

My unit has never worked properly as it is dripping water and ruining my wall and my filters. The business that installed my unit is giving me the run around and ignoring my requests to fix my unit once and for all.

The last time I was able to get anyone on the phone from Air Masters, the owner told me that he would replace my unit with a new one, but that you guys would not stand behind your product. Now,
