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 2-Stage 18 Seer AC"
Just recently bought a new furnace and AC. I bought the 2-stage compressor with 2-speed blower fan 18 seer ari#4654769. I bought this with a matching furnace AMVM961005DXA-modulating gas valve, with variable speed blower 96% efficient (gas). I can say that this is the best unit I have ever owned. Replaced a relatively new carrier furnace and AC that was poorly installed by Pulte Homes and Beautler AC company. Had a notorious freon leak that they could never repair and all ducting improperly sized. Replaced all ducting with new 16+in returns from all rooms and common areas. AC unit outside is so quiet, I cannot tell if its on especially in 1st stage cooling. House stays at 72F all day and electrical bill is ridiculously low. Unit has the lifetime compressor/heat exchanger. Beautiful warranty and better than other products I have (York/Carrier, etc). I would highly recommend Amana even though they are made by Goodman. The product quality is there and you can't beat the warranty. Just need to find a reputable dealer/installer to put it in right.

"Extremely Pleased With System"
I had an Amana ASXC18 installed 2 years ago and it has not broke down yet. The unit is extremely quiet (I enjoy having conversations with my neighbors and not hearing the A/C unit as we are standing 10 feet away from it). I've read some pretty nasty comments on here. Some of the techs on here say it's all about installation and I guess they are right. So far I have seen a big drop in electric bills and the unit cools the house great. Going with a smaller unit was a great choice since bigger isn't better and our old system was oversized (That's probably why it lived a short life). The variable speed air handler is a must-have. The company who installed the system did an excellent job and made sure everything was working the way it should. I would recommend Amana to anyone and I have so far to my neighbors. Couldn't be any happier.

Don't know the series, model says RSB on it. It's 10 years old and has stood up well except for the fan needing a cap when it stopped working.

These are cheaply made units and not very durable. A/C companies install these cheap units and make a lot of money. Our unit needed a whole control board after a few years of use, and now, one compressor will not turn and makes a horrid noise.

"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!!
