Amazing!!!!
I just got this unit today. it is amazing!!!! All these people are posting bad reviews and after reading more, not all true. I know this ac doesn't come with the drain whole. If they had read the instructions maybe they wouldn't have issues. It says to have a little slant( not to keep it level) so it drains out the back. As for it keeping the room cold it works perfect. My room is a 12X12 and it cooled my room down in about an hour. I can see it not working if you have a large room. That's why you need to research before you buy something. I made sure when I read the other reviews to see what people said about their rooms size, it makes a big difference. Now since I have only had it for a day I can't comment on smell, so far just smells like nothing. I do agree with the buttons though they are not raised so while in the dark it could be a pain in the **** to figure it out. I do wish it was button form and not touch. Most important part, it was easy to install. The directions are a little weird, you have to read it well. I have the wood frame so that might be the reason it was a lot easier. Best part is it is a lot more quiet then my regular fan. My boyfriend and I were both shocked that this ac with not loud. I have had one before and it would so loud I had to turn the volume up really high on my tv. I hope someone finds this post helpful!

noisy and remote too hard to read
Bought this based on last year's consumer reports that rated it highly. The remote, and even the front panel, are almost impossible to see without a bright light. Also noisier than our other two small units. Has an intermittent scratching noise. You can get used to a regular noise, but one that comes and goes all night long just doesn't cut it. It's going back.

Good Unit Blows Cold Air

This unit works well for a small space. Keeps small bedroom, 16'X12', cool. Makes noise when the condenser kicks on, but disapates as part of the white noise a window unit makes.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Won't ever buy Kenmore product again

Bought this item after researching lot of window air conditioners and thought this one was the best. After 1 week, machine sounded like it was zapping bugs anytime the compressor was on. Also never was accurate on the temperature of the room. If the AC is set at 72 and the room is 76, the AC should be on. Returned it and put a 2nd one in. Same problems. Spent 7 + hours on the phone with Sears to no avail. Bought GE product which has been in for the longest amount of time.

Great Choice

I bought this unit when it was on a one day special, great price, but I wasn't ready to pick it up from the store for a couple of weeks. Fortunately I was able to use layaway and all my problems were solved. The unit is super efficient, cools quickly and is quiet. The easiet unit I've ever installed and didn't require assistance. Give it a try, it's a great choice.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Rattles and keeps us awake at night

Heard it at store and it was very quiet, but store was air conditioned, so basically fan was on. Bought 3 because I saw good reviews, it sounded quiet, and it was a good price. Regret my choice. The rattle in the ac in our room kept us both awake. My son is scared of the slightly less noisy rattle in his ac, daughter's seems okay. But I plan on returning all three. Very disappointed!

kenmore ac

this air conditioner cools well for my very small bedroom. The control panel is impossible to see. It is all black and the menu is VERY small. I use the remote which is also hard to see as it is in black also.

Keeping us cool!!!!

Our daughters AC wasn't putting out enough cool air. So we went looking around. For her small bedroom this AC was the perfect size and price for what we needed. Plus it's just like the one in our room, just less wattage. It wokes great. Quiet. Keeps her room nice and cool. Filter easy to clean. She has asthma so she can't open her windows. It's great.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I purchased a new room air conditioner because my old one finally died!

I like the air conditioner because it does the job very well. There is one thing I do not like about it: I cannot read the digital screen. It is black and all I can read on it is the lighted items (I am a senior and my eyes are not the best). My children have to take care of the settings for me. I would like to have a screen I can see!

Cheaply made

This is a cheaply made AC unit. It is difficult to see controls, remote is also difficult to read. Installation included extra steps (assembling side panels) which in the past, was done at the factory.

Works great!

We purchased an identical air conditioner last year and liked it so much that we purchased the same one this year for another bedroom. It works great at cooling a room and is easy to operate. My husband installed it quickly with no problems. The one that we purchased last year is still working great and I expect this one to be the same. Well worth the money!
