BTU Rating for Kenmore Window A/C ?

6 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I'm having a hard time finding the BTU rating on my Kenmore (model# 106.9751852) window a/c unit. The unit is about 10-12 years old. I've search all over the unit itself, as well as, in the owner's manual, to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm thinking of replacing the unit and would like to replace it with the same size. It's a medium sized unit, 240 volts.

The compressor runs, but no air is blowing. I assume it could be the fan motor. I haven't checked it yet and was just thinking ahead...worse case scenario, you know :)

A service flash on the model number suggest it is between 18,000 and 29,000 BTU, a problem with the evaporator freezing up. I would see if the fan blades turn by hand, just to make sure they are not bond up on something....

to find the BTU rating

Btu/h =( wet b.  in factor - wet b. out  factor) x  cfm


CFM = 400

at 66 WET B. IN  F   FACTOR = 137

at 44 WET B. OUT   F FACTOR =77

difference                               = 66

BTU/H = (137 - 77) X 400  = 24000 BTU/H  = 2  TONS


40 F WB. =68.4

44 F= 77.0

50 F= 90.9

54 F = 101.0

60 F = 117.8

66  F=  136.6

70 F= 150.8

74 F = 166.3

 80 F 192.0

84  F= 211.3
