GE ASQ10AKS1 Window Unit

Hi! Does anyone have the technical service manual for the GE ASQ10AKS1 room air conditioner (window unit)? I have searched the internet high and low for it, and it's driving me crazy not being able to find it.

Thank you!

Check the run capacitor.

Check all connections - voltage drop could cause issues starting.

The compressor may be failing - tight bearings/lubrication issues would show up by checking the amperage draw - normally should be lower than that of the compressor.

You won't be changing a compressor on a window unit.

You can get a cheap two-wire hard start kit and which wires to the run cap terminals. Doesn't fix the cause but jump-starts the compressor so it doesn't overheat and shut off on overload.

Match hp range on the kit to tonnage - 1 hp per ton. (1 ton = 12 000 btu)

Probably supco spp6 ->

There are probably better start kits but at a higher cost and with a relay to mount - not worth it on a window shaker.

capacitors including 2-wire hard starts are cheap. worth trying.
