No the unit is not damaged. Just ain't getting enough juice. But that gives em an excuse to void the warranty.

What have the temperatures been during this time?

Are you in an area that is humid or desert-dry?

I'm in MA 75-80 with some humidity.

My 12,000 I purchased the same time still is ice cold and when the compressor kicks on it nice and strong as the 10,000 once was.

Do the compressors break in and become quieter over time?

*********************
I haven't done a look-up on your specific unit, but...

Generally compressors get noiser as they get older.

Compressor starting sound or vibration will be different depending on the temperture as well.

Let's focus on the *performance* of the unit.

During the hottest periods of the day---operate the window/wall unit at 75% cooling capacity (11am to 6pm)

Operate the unit during the evening hours at 25% to 50% cooling capacity.

Again---I'm assuming that this unit has the more basic controls.

I will research more & post add'l info if it is relevant for you...

Taji did you have both units on the same circuit?

No they are on separate circuits, but they both tripped their respective breakers

Get an electrician to examine the circuit breakers (or fuses) & wiring.

Verify that the correct amperage circuit breakers/fuses for the A/Cs are in the fusebox.

 
If the fusebox is older than 10 years or has aluminum wiring,the electrician can examine the condition of the wires & breakers.

It's not unusual for loose wiring to cause the circuit breaker to become hot & "trip".
