I was reading the conversation about the Magic Chef

I was reading the conversation about the Magic Chef MCBR445S1. Ours just quit working too. It was very hot around the compressor, even after it had been unplugged almost 30 minutes you could feel the heat radiating off it. I was trying to find out if it was worth repairing or just chuck it.JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Magic Chef is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: About 8 years. The number I gave is what is on the plate on the back. Let me see if there is a model name.JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: Yes, or getting a friend who does air conditioner repair probably.JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: No. It has worked perfectly up to now. I double checked the model number and it is correct. No model name other than sorightathome.

Have a mach air conditioner on a 2012 keystone laredo works

Have a Coleman mach air conditioner on a 2012 keystone laredo works on fan but when you switch thermostat to cool it will run for about three seconds then shuts down completely .Will reset itself after a couple of minutes and do the same thing.Was told by many camper places that the compressor was locked up.Hard to believe for only 4 years old.So I bought a hole New unit and its doing the same thing.when it shuts down completely if you switch the thermostat back to fan it will kick right on (fan) but on cool it resets itself and will kick out every time.

I just had a new through the wall air conditioner installed.

I just had a new through the wall air conditioner installed. A sleeve was installed through the wall first, then, the air conditioner was slid into it. The back of the sleeve is covered by a vented backing, and the gaps between he sleeve and the brick wall were sealed with concrete and foam insulation. Here is my Q: I noticed that the air conditioner doesn't drip out the back. Do ALL air conditioners drip? And, if so, do I have a problem? Has my professional installation somehow "blocked" the water exit and I'll soon be dealing with back-up water?

I just bought a used Idylis air conditioning unit model

I just bought a used Idylis air conditioning unit model #RPAC12EA.It has a hose for draining water out the back when using the dehumidifier, but even when I don't use the dehumidifier aspect and only use the air conditioning, there is a ton of water that comes out of that hose. (About one drop every second, sometimes more). Is this normal?Also, although I set the temperature to 73°, it will never drop below 80°.The unit is almost brand new and the last owner did not mention any problems with it. I'm rather useless when it comes to knowing anything about appliances. Any help would be great. Thanks!
