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.

SMOOTH OPERATION

This is a very good AC that keeps me comfortable in the summer. It runs well and does a great job of cooing off the room. I would recommend this product.

Cool quiet nights

I have been looking for a small light air conditioner for a while so that I could retire a large old "boat anchor" window unit which I would alway dread moving because it weighsu so much. I looked at at lots of units but this one really fit the bill. It is low on electricity and high on being cool and really quiet and best of all it is light (about 40 lbs) so it's easy to install. Perfect for our bedroom

Cools room down quickly but has intermittent noises

This makes a nice bedroom air conditioner. It definitely cools a room down quickly. I measured a 20 degree drop in temperature from the air inlet to the air outlet on top. If you want more dehumidification, set the fan speed to low. Now on to the complaints. One, the color scheme for the controls leaves a lot to be desired. Like some others have said, you have to shine a bright light to see some of the controls. Same with the remote. Two, at times the air conditioner makes noises that sounds like "metallic snap-pops". Yes, my unit is properly angled as per the instructions. Those are two things that hold this unit back for being an excellent little A/C unit. Other than that, its great.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice little unit after a year

Bought this last year for a kid's room. Small, light, but surprisingly powerful. Quiet, nice controls, works very well. Only minor annoyance is that one louvre on the left side cracked, but I'll buy a replacement part. Also it looks nice. And quiet. I'd say it is an excellent value, buy it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great unit for the money

I'm a bit confused about some of the bad reviews of this product. I did a through the wall installation of this window unit (I have sliding windows so they're not set up for that type of installation)(it took a little more work, just a small wood frame, but I was ok with that because I didn't want to buy the much more expensive 230 v unit and had only about 156 sq. feet to cool anyway). The unit is quiet and does the job it was rated for. The ONLY complaint I have about this model is that the remote is unlit and it is a pain in the **** at night to operate. Just as a reminder because I know others might want to do this since the window units are usually much less expensive than the through the wall ones, just make sure that there is enough room in the sleeve to allow some air circulation. A tight fit will cause the unit to malfunction and burn out.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Really Cool ! !

Don't bother with the extended warranty ... you won't need it. In any case, this unit is so inexpensive, you'd be better off just getting a new one than investing in the warranty. Quiet, Light weight. Easy to install. A good product for a reasonable price.

Works hard to cool 160sf room with vaulted ceiling

We bought this to cool an add-on bedroom. It's 160sf, with a very high ceiling, and this unit keeps it cool, but doesn't ever get it to feel cold. Would recommend for a small room with 8'-10' ceilings...nothing more.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Too loud for comfort

This is the worst unit I have ever purchased. Very disappointed. It sounds like it is coming apart on the inside. The noise comes from the fan splashing water onto the condensing coil to help improve efficiency. Terrible idea. Good idea if you do not sit in the same room with it on. Do not purchase this product. IT WILL DRIVE YOU CRAZY!!!!!!!!

Nice and Cold

I purchased this window Air conditioner for a small shed that was converted in to living space. It's now a bedroom and works perfectly to cool the area. It is small, compared to the one it replaced, but it still works. The remote control is a nice touch, too.

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.
