Great unit.
First off the noise everybody is complaining about is the fan blade picking up water to cool the evaporator coil fins. It's by design to use less energy. Don't like ? Another 8k will be bigger heaver and use more energy. This unit is about as small as a 5k unit of old. Comes with side panels. has plastic fan shroud which may break in the sun. For the money I like it. Cools good. I never have luck with dinky 6000 btu units.

What Happened to Kenmore Quality?
We had two Kenmore air conditioners and that is why we decided to purchase another. The sales reps really pushed for us to buy this unit and we really did not take the time to inspect the display model. Wow what a disappointment. Installation was easy enough but the unit itself is really chintzy. The ventilation system has only baffles that don't direct the air flow well. The remote is not for older people...one can barely read it. The unit is not sealed well it looks like the styrofoam from the old time cooler chests, instead of plastic and it is pieced together and not sealed where the pieces meet. I do not think I would buy another Kenmore after this. We had a 5100 btu that did not cool the entire room (12 x17) so we wanted an a/c with higher btu and energy savings. That 5100 unit was made much better and the remote was more user friendly. Truly disappointed.

I bought it for my small unit apartment and install in the living room, which gives enough cooling for entire apartment . I also use fans for extra cooling,if the weather is too hot.Not noisy.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great A/C at a great price

When my mothers 25 year old a/c broke down this close to fall I was afraid I might not find a suitable replacement so late in the season. A friend has an older Kenmore window unit that runs quite and keeps her whole house cool so I went to Sears in search of one for my mother. Found just want I wanted!! This unit runs quite and cools better than I had expected. We've only had it a couple of weeks but so far are very happy with the performance.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Room air conditioner

Other than the dimensions on the box not reflecting the dimensions needed to fit the air conditioner in the window the installation was easy and the air conditioner works very well. The remote control is a real convenience.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

One problem

Overall, the unit is doing its job, but it is almost impossible to read either the remote or the control panel on the unit as the panels are with a black background and a very, VERY! faint white lettering. In a sunlit room you cannot read the control panel without a flashlite.! Panel needs to be a white background with black printing and symbols. Everbody I have shown the unit to has the same problem, so its just not my old eyes!! Buyer beware.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

should come with a flashlight!

the control panel and remote is not back lit. A flash light is needed to read the control panel and the remote.
