"Garbage, Absolute Garbage"
Short and simple. Two units professionally installed. Three bad coils
and two condensers in four years. Both units sit in an air-conditioned,
foam-insulated attic. Annual maintenance and filter schedule. Trash.

"Worst AC Ever"
Have 3 Amana central units in my home built in 2006. I have had nothing
but trouble with all three! I had 4 coils replaced and countless fan
motors and 2 pcs. boards. Some under warranty, some not. I would not
recommend anything from Amana, not even a microwave oven or toaster!
Worst AC I have ever owned! Shame on you Amana! Replacing all three
units with Trane.

I have had a 16 seer Amana for 5 years. I have had someone out here for
leaks, 3 of those years and it has never cooled well since it was put in.
I also had to have the evaporator coil replaced due to a leak after only
3 years. I am currently sitting here for the 4th leak due to another
faulty part that leaked and locked in the 'heat' mode with no parts
available. It is currently 100+ degrees outside. Goodman/Amana... You
and your workers should be ashamed for producing and selling such crap!
Never again will I buy another product from either of these companies.

"Amana Poor Quality Inexcusable"
2 of the homes we own had Amana air conditioners installed within the
past 6 or so years. Both Amana units have leaked refrigerant repeatedly
and cost us hundreds or dollars to replace refrigerant. Very very
disappointed we chose Amana. We will now have to bear the cost of
replacing the whole systems to overcome the constant cost of incurring
hundreds of dollars to replace refrigerant. Do not buy Amana air
conditioning products! I guess I'm sadly not surprised a North American
manufacturer would take hard earned dollars from people in exchange for
a product that is so unreliable.

"A Coil Prone to Leaks"
Don't buy this brand. Buy window units until you save up enough for a
better quality brand. Had to refill with refrigerant each season.
Replaced a coil and the new one leaks also.
No issues with the furnace, yet.

"Run don't Walk Away from AMANA AC"
Run don't walk away from Amana AC. Ours had a leak after 3 years. With
any luck yours will not break in July nor August. Ours broke in May.
Would never buy AMANA anything.
They produce subquality products.
Hope you buy the labor warranty and parts warranty.
You still will pay for the extra like expensive refrigerant and service to evacuate and test.

17 months after installation, the compressor bound up. The serviceman insisted that the best remedy was to add an after-market "hard-start" compressor saver -- to the tune of $400!! Apparently this happens all the time -- I called the local distributor who had over 200 of thee "hard- start" devices in stock. Why in the world a company like Amana who's been making central air units for decades can't engineer a decent product beyond me. Goodbye forever, Amana -- and Goodman.

"Never Amana again!"
I had an Amana Model RCC48C2C installed in my new build last 2005. I have maintained contact service since 2006 on all major appliances. Well, here we are in 2013 I had to replace one entire unit (I have two units one for each floor). I asked the installer about the Amana, quoting ..."a piece of crap" not his exact words but you get my drift. On my next build I will be diligently involved in all selection of what I want in my home, I never wanted to have a chance to spend another $7200 bill after 8 yrs!!

"Goodman passed off for Amana!"
Within a 3 year period I had $10,000 investment and maintenance charges
for this unit, in which the coil repeatedly broke down causing the unit
to fail. I had to replace the entire thing at a cost of $6,200 in just 3
years. Bayside Heating and Air was the seller and did maintenance. They
were more interested in selling me unecessary services than servicing
the unit they installed.
