First off the noise everybody is complaining about is the fan blade picking up water to cool the evaporator coil fins. It's by design to use less energy. Don't like ? Another 8k will be bigger heaver and use more energy. This unit is about as small as a 5k unit of old. Comes with side panels. has plastic fan shroud which may break in the sun. For the money I like it. Cools good. I never have luck with dinky 6000 btu units.
I purchased this unit in the summer of 2013 to replace a 6000BTU unit that wasn't cooling like I needed it to. (200sq ft room). This unit is not any better. On a 95 degree day, I can only get my room temp down to 82 with the a/c set on 74. The air directional are a joke, as are the remote and the display, which can't be seen in the dark. At the start of this season, the third year of use, I started to hear a gurgling noise coming from the unit. Upon further inspection, there is a lot of water in the unit and mold has been found growing all through the inside, causing breathing problems, even for those non allergic.
This 8,000 BTU- Kenmore Room Air Conditioner is just great! I have it in my bedroom and the air quality is just superb! I sleep nice and cool every night and during the day it really cools the room especially in the summer. It is energy efficient as well as earth friendly. I have recommended this Kenmore room air conditioner to my family and friends for its great performance and quality. Thank you Kmart/Sears for this great product! I give it two thumbs up!
This is a pretty good ac, just perfect for our room.
it`s not cooling not even 50 foot away...
This AC seems to be of high quality had everything for every type install and is working great!
Has perform very well.
My Kenmore 8000 btu works just as it is supposed to. It is a little heavy, but that's because it packs a lot of power while also being energy sufficient. I would definetely purchase another one for a small sized room.
