Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

I just turned on my ac for the first time this year. I found leaking on my carpet. I had to change my filter and found ice on my pipes. also the area around the unit was damp. Did i fix the problem by changing the filter or is there suppost to be a filter under my filter. I have a model ar30-1 Thank you

My Diamond 80 furnace burner fired up, but stays on for 1-2 minutes. Cleaning the flame sensor didn't help. Removing filter however solved the problem. Filter is quite new by the way. What could be the problem? I didn't have this problem before, with the filter in place. Is there some high thermal switch that switch off when temperature reaches certain threshold? Thanks.


Check your thermostaty setting. If it's correct, you have to replace sensor only. ... Air Conditioners

My central a/c has a problem with water dripping from the cooling coils and getting down on my air filter below. The filter then turns black with mold. I have a very expensive filter (Aprilaire) so replacing it all the time is a problem. The a/c cools the house fine. The drain isn't clogged and the filters are new. What is causing this and how can it be fixed?

Hi, I have a Britony Combi SE. I have had a persistent problem whereby I am presented by fault lights 40-80. I am aware that this is a common fault and usually relates to water pressure. That has been tested and not the problem. In an attemp to fix the problem the engineer has changed a printed circuit board which again hasnt fixed the issue, what is happening is that on the circuit board there is a 3amp fuse which keeps blowing. The problem is we don't know what is causing this. Can you help?

Machine is spewing freon into the used oil reserviour when vehicle system is put under vacuum. Recently changed the filter drier and vacuum pump oil with no problems and have used it a couple times since with no problems. Just before this problem arose, we took a few leaking fittings apart and cleaned them. Coincidence?


I am assuming when you refer to machine, you are actually refering to a vacuum pump?\015\012\015\012Not clear what you are referring too on this one. Can you provide more details? ... Air Conditioners

Hi! I have a problem with an oil heating system! When I turn it on, it heat for 5 mins then stops. I have changed out the circulation pump as I thought that this was the problem. The pipes in the boiler are warm. The heat doesn't go to the radiators around the house. I Found that only 1 radiator heats upstairs. There is water in the radiators and none are air locked as i have tried them all.

I have Amtrol water heater. Recently I noticed that boiler trying to start several times till it finally starts. I decided to check if it is a boiler or water heater problem and turned on house heating system that was OFF for summer time. Boiler started immediately without any trying atemptes. Looks like it is a water heater problem. My qustion is: what should I change most likely - temp. sensor or temp.control? Thank you. Vlad


That's a good question. What a shop would do, is try one, then, if that didn't work, try the other, in this case- if they had the parts. It's hard to test the sensor correctly, and the temp. control might be intermittent, which means it would sh ... Air Conditioners

My AC starts fine. But the compressor will over heat and shut down in higher temperatures (high 80's lower 90's. It has run without issue on some days like yesterday with temps in the mid 80's.
