Our Weatherking 3 ton unit has worked in terms of giving us our comfortable 72 degrees -- but it has required a charge of refrigerant every year for 5 years straight which cost us about $250 per visit here in New York. Now last week the compressor went. Under warranty (barely) but now need to pay another $250 for the refrigerant after compressor is swapped out. So $7k for system, and another $1,250 for refrigerant over 5 years. You do the math. When it works, it's great but other than changing filters and washing outside coils, not much more a homeowner can do on his/her own. I will likely never install central a/c again (in next homes). Wall/window units are cheaper to buy, install and use. (I know some of you don't agree with this but I have had window/wall units for 20 years and more in many cases without a single issue). For a few hundred bucks you throw it out and buy a new one more efficient and quieter than the last one. If it was the install, how come everyone on this forum hates Weatherking. Did we all use the same contractor? I don't think so. Weatherking = garbage. By the way, all of my family and friends with different brands and different contractors also have many problems/break downs with theirs. central a/c = garbage

We had this unit installed three weeks ago, this unit never worked properly since it was installed!! Compressor was bad. Weather King is junk. Do not buy.

"WeatherKing 3 Ton (10AJA3601)"
If you are in the market, I suggest steering clear of this brand. Installed 2003. in 2009 had to spend $624 on contact. in May 2011 compressor has gone out. System has been maintained yearly, with filters replaced every 3 months. Weatherking gives a 5 year warranty, this should be enough reason not to buy this product. Spend a little extra and go with a reputable dealer who offers a 10 year warranty on parts. I will never purchase Weatherking again!

"20 yeard old outside unit"
I have an older outside weatherking unit being used to air condition a 900 square ft motor home. I am beginning to have problems with the unit and wonder if I am still able to get part for it.

Compressor and air handler installed in June 2010. Problems right from the start. Never could get house temp less than 77, then climbed to 81. This happened several times. Serviceman found the compressor to be intermittent (ran but did not circulate the 410). Felt sorry for the ac mechanic who came out several times, but unfortunately the system always was in its "partially working" mode when he came. He spent lots of time before the unit "failed", and revealed the problem. Will try to get installer to install a Rheem instead of the Weatherking.
