Mid way through 3rd season - works like new.

Great features- reminder to clean filter, easy to set timer, energy saver mode (admittedly the on and off nature of this featre can get annoying, but works great if youre not watching tv or something like that). Installed this in the spring 3 years ago, and after that time and removals and re installations, it is still as quiet and as cool as the day we bought it. When it came time to replace the unit in our bedroom, I didn't hesitate to go purchase the 8k BTU model of the same unit. Little issues are the reason I didnt give 5 stars. Controlls are extrememly hard to read, especially the remote, and after 3 years I still havent memorized the button locations. The remote is also tiny, about half the size of a smartphone, it is constantly getting lost for days at a time. There are two tiny metal clamps that hold the accordian panels on the side in place- they are not attached to the panels in any way, and got lost over the last winter- I managed to fabricate something that serves the same purpose.

Criticism

Lasted 18 months

I was happy with it's cooling capacity. It kept our bedroom cool. We bought the unit 2 years ago and kept it in the box during winter and plugged it up in the spring. 18 months later it stopped working. Thankfully we paid $65 for the 3 year warranty. The repairman told us it would have cost around $300 to repair. The computer chip went out. He said it was common for this product.

Workes more like an 8000 btu

|

It's ok, but I feel it's a little weak, feels like an 8000, not a 10000

Good unit (10,000btu model) but too loud

|

We have had this unit since May 2012. It cools our area living area (25x15) well but is just too loud to keep it on high for long periods of time. Measured at the unit, it is between 72 and 75 dB. Seven feet away, it drops to 65. but it is still too loud to watch TV or carry on a decent conversation with anyone with hearing difficulties.

EXHAUST & FRESH AIR EXCHNGE. COOLS GREAT. 68 NOT "78" LBS.

|

Kenmore is made by Frigidaire, & this largest of the small a/c's still not needing outside window brace really cools & reviewers say pumps humidity out too. Box says 68 not "78" lbs, but it's a 2-person lift.

Chosen for hard-to-find vent to exhaust stale/hot air or also draw in fresh air when cool outside (I wish bigger hole & less brittle potentially breakable control), this has many features inc nice remote, timer & sleep settings, 3 fan speeds & a Fan Only setting good to exhaust/exchange in cool autumn/winter/ spring.

Hope brittle plastic hinges of removable not "tilt out" filter cover last to clean out bugs & add add'l better cut-to-fit washable filter mesh from home improvement stores. It's Filter Reset Light is a must for me to keep air clean & coils from freezing over.

Sears protection during mfr wty period than home improvement stores, this 1-yr mfr wty does not cover power surge but this a/c is eligible for good buy Sears Master Protection Agreement $65 full service inc annual maintenance costs little more than lower BTU mere Replacement Plan.

Online Help rang up Sears installation $110, & all w/ promo & SYW Rewards discounts it was a good buy even before. Ask installer to look over all pieces & directions/photos before installing (some of mine not right by "quick & dirty" plumber dad & leaving too much to apprentice son).

Outstanding performance

|

Quiet, powerful, efficient, and I'm in line for a rebate. I can't believe I waited this long to update my 17 year old air conditioner. Some people say they ain't built like they used to be--well good riddance! This new AC is so far superior to my old one, I really don't care if it lasts 17 years. It cools the whole place better, is quieter, has a remote, is more compact and lighter, and it has energy saving features. I couldn't be more pleased. I got it with the 5 year home protection agreement and it was installed in a a snap. Highly recommended.

This is a very nice window air conditioner.

|

The sales person was excellent and helped me pick the right model for our area. I was able to install it myself. Not too much in weight or size but very powerful. We have a 100 yr older house and the floor plan is broken up but now we are able to sit in the living room again and enjoy evening TV. In Michigan we have had a hot and humid summer so far.
Thanks for the help.

really cool

|

This air conditioner might only be 10.000 btu's but it really puts out the cold air. We bought it for a house we are working on for my mother and it cools both the living room and the kitchen. It's very quiet and we love the remote control. works great. Love all Kenmore products.
