Product Description

Kenmore 8,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner - Powerful Cooling in a Small Package

The sleek, smart, easy to read controls and electronic display make everyday use and programming of the Kenmore portable air conditioner 8408 a breeze. Create energy-saving comfort or simply recirculate your room's air. This portable A/C unit comfortably cools an area of up to 350 sq. ft.  Settings such as cool, dry, fan only, or automatic mode allow you to maintain your ideal comfort zone. The remote control feature allows you to control the A/C unit from wherever you are—a nice perk for those lazy, hot summer afternoons. The 24-hour timer and sleep mode shuts the unit off, so that energy isn't wasted when the air conditioner isn't needed. To keep the unit operating properly, the included window venting kit must be installed to exhaust hot air out of the room. This Kenmore portable A/C unit may be small, but it can cool your space perfectly.

  • 2 cooling and 2 fan speeds help keep your room's air circulating and at just the right temperature
  • Four settings (powerful cooling, fan, dry and auto) allow you to set the comfort level to your preference
  • Sleep mode gradually adjusts room temperature for comfort and energy savings
  • 24-hour on/off timer keeps things cool on your schedule
  • Unit automatically restarts in the event of a power interruption and remembers all settings
  • Temperature sensor automatically changes the operation mode to maintain the room's comfort
  • Efficiently cools a 300-350 sq. ft. room (approx. 15 ft. x 20 ft.)
  • The included quick-install kit fits windows up to 48.43 in. wide
  • Kenmore portable A/C units use the more efficient and eco-friendly R410A refrigerant

works as promised
this worked out ok, we set this up as a back-up for elderly household who was experienceng trouble with their central air. fairly easy set up. With any of these types of AC need to think about how to drain condensation. This unit has a drain in the middle in the back and one on the bottom, neither made it possible to drain out the window so had to have a separate bucket

Overpriced Fan
I had a situation where I needed to get a standing unit. The only problem is that in a small space it does not cool the way you think it should. It ended up basically being just an oversized, overpriced fan with an unsightly tube leading to the window. Maybe it works better in a bigger space, but for a bedroom you're better off getting a fan to put on the window. Sears representatives were all very helpful in the process of buying and returning the unit (to which I received a 100% refund), so this is no error on their end. Would not recommend this product.

very good air conditioner. but quite noisy

i bought this portable a/c on summer. the a/c did pretty good job. its really keep my room cool all night. but the machine its pretty noisy. guess, all the portable a/c is pretty. on the other thing, u have to find the floor is really flat to keep out the noise. otherwise the machine will be pretty noisy when u place on the unflat floor.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Quite and efficient

I bought this portable air conditioner in the beginning of September 2014 and it has worked great under light usage. The unit is quite and effectively cools a 300ish square foot room. The unit hasn't leaked from the condenser yet and is fairly easy to move from one room to another. The only downside I have seen so far is the exhaust port window fitting. It is about 5 foot fully extended, this works well in every room but my living room. I used some plexiglass to block the gap leftover. Easy setup and controls. Electric bill was noticeably affected but it made the family more comfortable. All in all great purchase.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Too weak

I Bought this unit for my small room ,about 120 sq ft. During Summer time in Hawaii, it does a decent job cooling My room during night time. Unfortunately when it's noon time the AC couldn't make my room to cool up; my 2 fans plus a ceiling fan didn't help much .. I was still drenched in sweat. Also considering the hottest weather in Hawaii goes only up to 90s, unlike the mainland which goes up to more than 100+ It has a nice modern design but not strong enough for Hawaii Summer weather.

Very easy to set up, user friendly, get cold very fast, not too loud, nice looks, self evaporating condensation huge plus. Too new to know if it will last long. Good value for money.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Value!

my heat pump went out; waiting for a part because its a 14 year old unit; had to buy this portable AC in a hurry; glad I picked this Kenmore. Just like all my other Kenmore products, it works great. Going to purchase another one for the bedroom.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
