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.

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.

in need of frequent repairs

I bought this unit to replace a comparable Kenmore when the fan broke right after it went off it's 5 year warrenty. I want to like it-but I just cannot. The first one they delivered was defective and blew hot air. Sears relaced it and the second one was cracked. Now I am on #3 and the motor bearings are worn after the second summer of very little use. Sears does live up to it's repair warrenty-but you have to wait weeks to get it fixed then they don't have the part and you have to wait some more. PLEASE SEARS- go back to the OLD RELIABLE KEMORES!!

doesn't cool

I bought this for my daughters bedroom and it doesn't cool anything. Her room is only 10x12. I thought it would be a great unit for her small bedroom..... wrong. I have to be right next to it just to feel ANY cool air. You walk into her room and it feels like she just has a fan going. I am taking it back to night. I will go somewhere else to find a better unit.

This air conditioner is much quieter than our previous one. Now we are able to sleep while it is running.

Great A/C unit

Just put this unit in last night. It cooled my room quickly and efficiently. Love that it has a remote and an auto control -- definitely think this is going to save me on my electricity bill. I haven't used the sleep function yet, but interesting that it gradually increases by 4 degrees over an hour and then maintains.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
