Life expectancy of A/C window units?
I've got a Whirlpool ACM122XK1 that was manufactured in May of 2002. The fan runs but the compressor doesn't. I had the same problem about 5 years ago and I had to replace the capacitor at a DIY cost of (I think) around $35. Money is a little tight right now so I'm debating with myself if it's the same problem, should I put any more money into a 9+ year old machine, or just go buy a new unit. (The compressor had been making some new sounds this season.) Just wondering what the life expectancy of these things were in 2002? Opinions?
