Overview of the ASX13
The Amana ASX13 is a high-efficiency single-stage air conditioner with an efficiency rating of up to 14 SEER. The unit's scroll compressor is protected from moisture and debris by a factory-installed filter drier, and a high-density foam compressor sound blanket helps keep sound levels as low as 73 decibels. Copeland CoreSense Diagnostics constantly monitor the system for trouble and will shut the system down if a problem with the compressor is detected. The unit's heavy-gauge galvanized steel cabinet has a sound-control top and a powder paint finish with 500-hour salt spray approval.

I have had my unit for less then two years and already needed to replace the coil. Since they only cover the part it ended up costing me over $700.00 to replace it. Amana didn't cover any labor or refrigerant lost due to their faulty part. Stay away from Amana!

"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.

Although I like how the unit performs when it works, it seems to have a morbidly high failure rate. Connectors burning open on the condenser because the crimp-on-only connectors are underrated. The simple application of a little bit of solder to the connectors at assembly time would absolutely cure this issue, and vastly improve Amana's overall reputation, which right now must be near zero as service technicians scramble in record-breaking heat to fix stupid design flaws. Come on now, gimme a break!
Other ASX13 Reviews
A homeowner on hvac-talk.com asked if the ASX13 is a good unit, because he'd read several bad reviews. There weren't many posts saying if it was good or bad, although one member stated that most equipment reviews are bad anyway. A post from a homeowner on the same site asked for opinions in choosing between the ASX13 and the Amana ASX16. Most replies favored the ASX16, citing the longer warranty as the main reason. A few did choose the ASX13 based on the lower price and efficiency needs.
