Quiet and Magnificant at Cooling

This A/C unit beats any previous A/C i have ever had, so I went back to Sears and bought a second one for an additional room!

Designer should be fired!! Poor replacement for the former 75062

What has happened to Sears????? I had bought a 12,000 BTU model but couldn't reach the Sears installation people to have it installed permanently in my window (it was too heavy for me to lift). So after calling for a month without success, I had to return it. I bought this one b/c I could put it in the window myself and take it out in the winter. I also have the previous version which is really great. I was expecting the old version with improvements- Boy- was I in for a disappointment. This new version is the worst design and functions poorly. I own the prior version 75062 which is really great- I now wish I had bought two; since it it no longer available and the new one is awful... For this new version: PROS: 1. Improved attachments for securing unit to the window, which is great for using in a 1st floor window. Built-in recessed indentation for window sash. Installation hardware and insulation included. 2. 24 hour timer vs 12 hour. CONS: 1. NOT low profile as advertised - is the same height as the conventional units. 2. Made of metal with exposed fins and no handles - making it awkward to install. (former version was one piece, hard plastic with handles and a covering for the fins). 3. Display is difficult to use or to see anywhere but standing close by. 4. Remote is useless. Writing too small to read without a magnifying glass for most people. Too small and easily lost. Can't use remote in the less than bright light or without a flashlight. If it only glowed in the dark or had better contrast for the lettering. 5. Old version was enclosed in hard plastic with handles; making it easy to move, clean and store at the end of the season. This one is metal, with large outside openings which allow dirt to come in and making it difficult to clean and put away. Again, no handles -make it difficult to move and install. Sharp metal edges-watch your hands! 6. Front plastic cover is cheap-won't last long-prone to breakage. 7. Installation instructions and use and care guide very very poorly written and not edited. Half of it makes no sense and does not use correct English. 8. Heavier than prior model. 9. Doesn't cool well and can't direct air with all of the 8 way air direction attachments! Only blows up into the curtains. Takes hours to change the temperature in the room by 10 degrees. 10. Fan has no power even on HI! I think whomever re-designed this model and wrote the included paperwork should be fired!!!!!! Such a poor replacement. Bring back the old plastic model with improvements to the window attachments and a functioning remote and you"ll have a great product-contact me and I'll give you a much better design!

Quiet coolness

|

Bought this AC a few days ago because I was looking for a really quiet AC for my bedroom. This one does the trick. Majorly important: install it right and with attention to detail: make sure it does not just sit on the bracket but also on the window sill! That being said: you need to ensure that the upper side of the bracket is pretty much exactly 18mm below the lower window frame where the AC will sit on. Initially the unit sat on the bracket only, which was ok, but lowering it by just a tad made a huge difference!

Overall, I lIke It.

|

It cools great. Nice and quiet. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars;
All of the controls do not illuminate in the dark, making this A/C hard to control at night, the remote, I don't even bother using it. You'd thing Sears, with all it's years of experience, would know better then doing this to an otherwise fine product.

So far so good!

We have had this for about 3 weeks and really like it. It is extremely quiet. Like the slim look and how it doesn't take up the entire window. Installation was easy too.

Great Unit, Very Quiet

|

This is my second one of these units. I am very happy with both. The first is a few years old and still working great. They are very quiet when operating, I have one in my living room and the other in the bedroom. No bother when watching TV or sleeping. 6,000 BTU is on the low end these days but I find it performs better than the larger unit it replaced. It is also slim leaving more window area available and it's an attractive unit inside.

Minor complaints: 1. Its very wide with the side panels, too wide for my ~25" window opening. I had to remove the slide outs completely and fill the small gap left over. 2. The panel, though nice looking, angles the display up so it cannot be seen from bed/couch, only when standing near it. 3. Remote is hard to use in the dark. 4. The fins are very easily damaged. I have a tool to fix them which works well (22 fins per inch), but it would be nice if they had some protection.

Overall I am very happy with both units and would recommend them to anyone. Its so nice to have a quiet A/C that cools well and doesn't look like a monstrosity in the window.

Just in time to beat the heat!!!

Love the low profile. It lets in more light from window, and is quiet compared to my last one.

air conditioner

|

Great air conditioner. For the price I couldn't ask for more. It fits perfect in our window. It is so much more quieter than normal air conditioners half of the time we don't even know it's on. I would highly recommended this to anyone just trying to cool a bedroom.

mold and water condensation on the controls

|

this is the most expensive AC unit I have ever had and the most crapy one. It has NO DEHUMIDIFICATION POWER, which means it will only cool down your room and keep all the moisture in the air. there is water condensation on the controls and mold everywhere inside the unit. even my cheapest, very loud AC unit does the job better than this OVERPRICED PIECE OF ****.
I called sears repair service and they charge 75$ for somebody to come and look if it's corectly instaled - like I'm a moron who has no idea how to put AC in a window.
I'm taking it back to the store tomorrow and they will charge me 15% restocking fee. ONE BIG JOKE!!!!

Buy Only If You Don't Use Remote

|

I read some reviews here from users who didn't like the remote. But I thought: how bad can this remote be? Is it really that different from other ac remotes? The answer is YES it can be THAT bad. If you do not need to use the remote, esp not at night, then this unit is probably fine for you.
If, however, you are purchasing for a bedroom, to mainly use at night, you may want to buy another unit. The remote is tiny, light weight, and easy to lose. The face of the remote is entirely black, smooth and flat, and does not light up at night or have any lcd display for temp. That means if you want to turn off/on or adjust temp or fan you have to turn on your light. And even then you won't be able to tell what temp you have set the unit at, or what speed the fan is set on, unless you get up and walk over to the ac unit.
The lcd display on the unit is facing upwards. Good for keeping room dark, but bad if you'd like to see what the temp is set on. For such an expensive unit, I am amazed that the remote does not have an lcd display showing at least the temp, and at least a bump where the on/off button is so it can be used without turning on a light at night.
The words on the remote are tiny (in keeping with how small the remote is), and are barely legible. With another couple of months of use, I am sure they will have rubbed off entirely.
One thing I did to remote that helped -- I bought a pkg of those little plastic discs, the ones used under lamps, etc to prevent them from scratching furniture. I stuck one where the on/off control is on the remote. Now I can turn unit on/off without turning on light. Can't see to control fan or temp, but at least can turn on/off.
As mentioned by another poster, the opening vents on the unit are quite large, I also duck taped netting over the opening. Otherwise you will end up with a lot of debris inside the unit.
For $300, you should not have to do this stuff to make the unit and remote useable!
On the plus side, the unit is pretty quiet, was easy to install (we couldn't use the brace due to our window set up, but still is fairly stable), and cools the room. Would have liked it to dehumidify a little more. But if you are using in a kitchen, den, liv rm, it should be fine. For a bedroom, I'd consider another unit.

Very Nice

|

Just purchased to replace my old low profile. Works great and enjoy the feature of the air blowing up rather than out. Read many reviews of people complaining about this feature but I really like it. It's also very quiet.

Efficient! Very Nice!

|

First things first, After hooking it up and turning it on, my room was at the set temp of 72 in 20 minutes on a 92 degree day which was very impressive. Fits in my basement window like a charm with some cloth around the unit for insulation (doesn't fit the whole window). I just have to say this is the best AC unit I have purchased and I hope it lasts a very long time, my room is 140 square feet and it gets extremely hot and humid in the summer (lots of electronics in my room including a fridge putting off heat). This AC just runs for 10-15 minutes and easily gets my room to the desired temp and goes to fan mode and repeats so very energy friendly. It's running on a 100ft 14AWG extension cord (not to much power where my room is) and the cord doesn't even get warm with the AC only pulling 5amps max, though using a extension cord like that is not a smart or recommended idea with an AC due to resistance and voltage loss from what I hear, it still seems to work like a charm. Either way it's a great product and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an AC for their room.

Seems great for now

|

Gets the room colder than I need it to be. I have read the reviews, 25% of which were quite negative. That seems to be the case of most of the window ACs I checked out. So I bit the bullet and paid for the 3 year maintenance contract. I bought 3 Sears ACs, two 12k BTU units and this 6k, all at once. (So sears loves me.) Quality in the age of "made in China" is hit or miss. This unit seems to be intelligently designed. It does not drip inside the room (as one reviewer said). I set it up in about ten minutes (unlike someone who said it took an installer an hour). This was the second AC that I had *ever* installed. Right now in high humidity and high heat it is doing what it should be doing. It is working in tandem with the downstairs unit to keep the upstairs office, bathroom and hallway cool. The downstaris 12k BTU unit is doing the dining room, living, room, and kitchen. A third unit does my large bedroom and master bathroom (but I only turn it on in the evening). So by running 18k BTUs I'm cooling roughly half of an 1850 sq foot house which is about 20 BTUs per square foot and that's right on the money in terms of what standard recommendations predict.

I've only had it for a week so I don't know where I'll be with it three years down the road. Right now it is doing fine. I don't use the remotes it is just one more piece of junk to lose.

It is quieter than most of the ACs I encounter at friends' homes. The large indentation for the window is a real plus. It is light weight.

I must say I would be delighted with this product except that the "made in china" issue leaves me worrying it will be worthless two weeks from now. As I write this, it is doing fine.

TIP: to reduce stuff from getting in the top duct tape 9x6 inch Scotch bright pads across the top vents. These are porous (you can easily breathe through them) and permit air to pass easily, but will keep junk from getting in there.

TIP: The energy saver does turn the unit off which saves money. Typically the room runs about 3 to 5 degrees hotter than what is set on the AC. If I set it to 68, the room is 71 to 73. Makes sense to me the thermostat is in the unit and it is much colder over where it is blowing in than in the rest of the room.

Good A/C, but not as quiet as some

|

We ended up taking this one back and getting the 8,000 btu model, which seems quieter, only because it doesn't cycle on and off as noisily as this one did. It did cool the room down nicely though, so that was not an issue. Also, the controls are very difficult to read - especially at night. Needs more lighting - and definitely the case for the remote. The 8000 btu unit is better, though with the same controls issue. With time, we'll just know where the buttons are, so not a huge issue, just a bit of a pain. Also, the blower blows out the top, so if you have thick window shades (we have dbl-cell shades), you have to keep the shade 4-5 inches above the unit, which doesn't help our room-darkening shades.

The most quiet air conditioners I've ever owned!

|

I am so glad I bought two of these low-profile, easy-to-install, energy-efficient air conditioners for our bedrooms. They are very quiet with an easy-to-use remote control as well as a sleep cycle to use overnight. Good price and great value!
