WeatherKing WLKB Air Conditioner Overview

WeatherKing, a discontinued brand once produced by Rheem, manufactured the WKLB commercial packaged cooling unit. This two-stage air conditioner offers up to 9.2 SEER and has a cooling capacity of up to 90,000 Kw. This model also is compatible for field- or factory-installed heating kits.

This unit is constructed with 18-gauge sheet metal, reinforced with a coat of G90. A one-piece top features a drip lid and gasket-protected panels and screws, as well as a coil guard, to further help protect the unit from outside elements.

The WKLB also is promoted by the manufacturer for its easy installation and maintenance, due in part to forkable base rails for easy handling, accessible factory-installed filters and its slide out blower. Additional components of the WKLB include a 2-stage compressor, condenser fan motor and an outdoor coil with enhanced fin design.

WeatherKing WLKB Air Conditioner Reviews


3.0 rating

Truth be told Weatherking and Rheem are the same equipment. Remember just because a technician tells you a compressor is bad does not mean its true. a stuck compressor may seem like its faulty but a good tech. can get it started. a compressor could be overheated appearing to be shorted internally when in reality its just off on the overload. So always make sure you are not getting conned by the tech — or — for that matter, make sure he knows what he is doing. As far as the compressor being faulty after one week, I find that hard to believe, and if so installer screwed up. Also, $615.00 for a contactor? Whew they saw you coming a mile away I am sorry to say. Even an emergency call would have been $200.00 cheaper.

My house is only 7 years old and we were just told that we have to replace the compressor and condensor. This unit only had a 5 year warranty. Steer clear of this brand.
