Product Description

It’s easy to keep your cool when the temperature rises with Kenmore’s™ 5200 BTU room air conditioner. The unit’s relatively light weight of just over 40 pounds allows for single-person window installation. Easy-to-use push buttons and remote control make beating the heat a quick and simple operation. Most importantly, with the window air conditioner quietly humming away, there’s enough power, 5200 BTUs, to cool small rooms and studio apartments.

This window air unit packs a mighty punch for its size yet remains highly efficient and earth friendly. A 24-hour on/off timer and sleep mode let you control when the air conditioner is working.

This window air conditioner fits a window from 23 inches to 36 inches wide and at least 14 inches high.

Cools nicely. Fan noisily splashes condensed water inside but can be fixed
It operates very quietly except that during humid days condensed water buildup on the bottom towards the back gets splashed around by the fan. The water hits the aluminum cooling fins and it sounds like fingernails scraping the fins. There was only one drainage hole on the bottom (beneath the compressor), so I drilled many more. Problem solved. Before drilling, I had tried mounting the unit at several angles slightly off horizontal, but the condensate buildup still occurred.

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.

Cools well, louder than expected

It does cool well. I like the timer, sleep, cool, fan, energy savings features. Yes, the remote and ac face are impossible to read w/o a magnifying glass & flash light. Yes, the AC is much louder when in the cool/energy saving mode. More so than my 10 yr. old wall model I had...sad to say. It's in the wall already, & I'm stuck w/ it. But, quiet, not really. Not to me anyway. But in a 2nd story large room that gets very hot in the summer, it's OK. I turn the tv louder. If I were to do it again, I'd plug it in when I took it out of the box to see how loud it was BEFORE installing it. Having bought 2 other Sears ac units w/o the same noise issue, it never occurred to me to do that. Lesson learned.

Buyer be warned

Do not buy this or the 8,000 BTU model. 2 of 2 units we've bought have NOT worked properly. The first one left a strange smell in the room. We purchased a warranty but since they could not recreate the surroundings (a small enclosed room) they could not smell anything. They couldn't find anything wrong with the unit so now were stuck with a smelly AC I will not use. We replace this with a little larger unit and while this one doesn't stink, it does not cool at all. Since it's permanently installed we called for on site service only to be told that they cannot repair it if they have to stand on a ladder. I guess part of the problem is the manufacturer and the other problem is Sears. I will NEVER purchase an appliance to warranty from them again. Ever!
