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.

8000 BTU AC

I purchased this little AC and installed it in my shed to cool things down while I was at my workbench. With the doors closed fifteen minutes later the temperature was bearable and in thirty minutes pleasantly cool. A lot of comfort from a small window unit on hot and humid NC summer days!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very LOUD,Slow to cool,can't read the remote or screendisplays in the dark.

EXTREMELY LOUD! Louder than the 5,000 BTU KENMORE that lasted for 20 years! The remote is a joke...when you need it most in the dark. The on unit display is just as bad in the day and worse at night! You don't want to have to turn on a light to shut it off, change temp, etc. I upgraded from a 5,000 btu because i have a large room. SO disappointed, I am going to try and return it.

Excellent Buy

I recently purchased this Kenmore 8,000 BTU air conditioner. To my surprise it was easy to install - just had to put the sides on and a few screws into the vinyl window. Had it up and running in no time. It cools the room within minutes. Love the energy saver feature. With discount codes and surprise rewards points I paid $188 including tax. Couldn't be happier with this product.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

New Air Conditioner

It's a good size for the room we got it for . The price was about what we wanted to pay and was easy to put into the window. It is not loud and so since it is in a bed room noise or lack of is important. I enjoy buying from Sears because they always take pride in what they sell and stand by what they sell.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not great

It's a bit loud and doesn't seem to have maximum cooling power, but it will do.
