The Amana ASX16 is a high-efficiency air conditioner with an efficiency of up to 16 SEER. It is equipped with a high-efficiency Copeland scroll compressor, with a high-density foam compressor sound blanket for noise reduction. It features a single-speed condenser fan motor and a copper tube / enhanced aluminum fin coil protected by a steel louver coil guard. Advanced Copeland CoreSense diagnostics help monitor air conditioner operation and functions. The heavy-gauge galvanized steel enclosure features a sound-control top to provide adequate airflow and quiet operation.
7-28-14 An Amana air conditioner was installed in our condo. This is a 3 ton unit of which we were guaranteed would keep upstair bedrooms cool. The first year, numerous services were required because it was not cooling upstairs at all. Previous central air unit still worked, it had age on it and we felt a new unit would be more energy efficient. Not one day has this unit cooled the upstairs. Never in a million years will I buy another Amana. All I can do is sweat it out and warn others.
"Leaks in the coil after just two years. Over $1000.00 to fix."
Leaks in coil after only two years. Will cost over $1000.00 to fix. Called Amana. They just don't care. I will never buy Amana again. I am sorry Consumer Reports gave it a good writeup. When it works it works very well but it is unreliable.
"Class Action Lawsuit"
Sure wish I had read all this before I bought this piece of shit, these people should have to pay for selling this crap to people wanting a reliable product, leaks in the a coil, numerous times, finally had to replace the coil, service bills out the roof, and Amana will not warranty the coil, sorriest a/c unit made. Piece of shit
"Don't buy amana/goodman"
Had a 16 seer ac installed in 2008 and had to have the evaporator replaced under warranty in 2012 (part reimbursed only, had to pay for install). The replaced evaporator was leaking again 2014. This is absolutely ridiculous having to shell out 1,000 for yet another faulty evaporator install labor and Puron. Not to mention the first one was $450 with additional 100's of dollars spent to add coolant about 2 times a year for 4 years. Replaced the entire system in 2014 with Carrier.

"It's the installing company not the Air Conditioner"
You must realize everyone of these reviews has nothing to do with the brand, and everything to do with the installer. Majority of failures are caused by poor installation. Can't go with the lowest bidder and expect top quality. Only thing worse then paying top dollar for top quality is paying to little and getting what you pay for.
Based on comments from HVAC forums, the ASX16 is regarded as a good air conditioning unit by both consumers and professionals. A professional on hvac-talk.com calls it one of the ‘best bang for the buck’ systems, and a consumer with a unit that is not cooling properly was advised by several professionals that it was most likely due to an installation problem.
Online product registration is required within 60 days of installation for maximum warranty coverage. The warranty for the Amana ASX16 air conditioner is comprised of the following:
Lifetime unit replacement limited warranty. If the compressor fails for the original, registered owner, a new unit will be supplied for free
