Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

The system runs but both the high and low so pressure erratically go up and down. the low side does not go under 600kpa, the high side between 1500 and 2000kpa. the system is an lg ducted on R22 refrigerant

Answers :

This can be caused by moisture in the system and when the moisture freezes on the capilliary tube you get a fluctuation, it the defrosts and passes through and again causes an up and down. Same would apply for excessive air in the system. You would have to do a long vacuum and possibly instal an inline filter drier.

1994 corolla-I charged the air cond., and it was cooling fine. After about a mo., it was not cooling very good. I assumed it had a small leak. I put my guages on it and the low pressure was running 15 to 20. The high side was reading about 150.I put a can of stopleak and detector in it. Then I put a can of freon in it. While I was putting the freon in it the pressure started to drop on both the low side and high side. Now the low side pressure is running about 15 and the high side is running 0.W

Hi\015\012\015\012\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. This has happened because of the low side pressure on your AC pump isn't kicking on, because when the pump is off, the pressures equal out and the low side shows a high ... Air Conditioners

System pressure for puron read 280 and 135 for low side. System is not cooling at all. Suction line at air handler is not cold at all. System has had problems with leaks and customer has told me some techs have added refrigerant which I suspect has affected the mixture of the refrigerant. What should I do to bring thge system up to it normal capabilities. Also amps for compressor was 8 and is rated for 23 RLA

The system must be leak checked, refrigerant recovered, evacuated, a drier installed, and recharged to the correct subcooling, (I assume this is a carrier since you reference "puron")\015\012the low side pressure seems to be in line the high si ... Air Conditioners

I have a 2002 Ford Expedition 4.6L. I am attempting to add fren 134 to my system. I have a recovery unit and prfessional guages. I simply am not able to find the low side charging port on this vehicle. I have looked high and low. No low side port visible. Does any one have a handle on what the answer might be? Thanks a bunch for helping out.

It should be on the accumalator or on the compressor hose they have them in different places and in three different places, look for the low side switch and you could vav it down there and charge itthere if you use a paper clip to keep the compressor ... Air Conditioners

Sounds like you have a dirty condenser coils that need cleaning if that does not work check the freon level and if charging doesn't work the compressor may be victim to test this spray cool water on the condensor coils and at the same time see if you ... Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner

I'm getting condensation leakage from the vents in the roof. This is on a ducted system, and it's leaking from the two vents closest to the main blower unit up in the ceiling. It's very high humidity here lately, and the leak usually starts around mid afternoon. Up in the ceiling you can see the drops of condensation forming on the under side of the main blower unit, and also all along the large insulated air ducts. I've got the thermostat set to 24deg, it's usually 30 - 34 deg outside. When I

Two things may need to be done here, one is to insulate the vents in the high humidity/temperature area to isolate them from these high conditions. The second would to install a drain pan under the system to catch any condensation and drain it away. ... Air Conditioners

I am considering getting an ac/heater unit to keep temperatures in a 26 ft box truck at about 65 degrees. It will be difficult to insulate the side walls but, the ceiling can be. I anticipate outside temperatures hitting as high as 95 at times or as low as 30. Would a Duo Therm 15,000 btu unit be able to maintain this temperature in an un-ducted box truck?

You might get lucky with cooling it, depending on where it's parked I guess, under a shady tree in summer would be best obviously, but condensation will be ridiculous on walls.. As far as the heating elements that are in them, it will depend on where ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

I have the correct Manifold Gauges for checking the low and high side of the heat pump. How do I read the gauges to ensure that my system has the right charge? Outside ambient temperature is 85.4.

In order to know if you have the correct charge you must measure the subcooling since it is a txv unit. The outside unit will have the proper subooling you need printed on the data plate. Hook up you gauges and let thebunit run for 10 minutes, after ... Air Conditioners

Hello, I have 3 phase power. 2 low sides and one high side. Can I hook up a 24o volt baseboard heater to one of the low sides and one high side. Or, will it be overloaded? Thanks, Jeff

Insufficient cooling in my mercedes 300e 1989. When i hook the manifold gauge and turn on the AC, the low side pressure shows ~70psi and high side 200 - 230psi(low side pressure stays constans and high side not to)

1989 year would indicate the system uses the Old CFC R12 refrigerant. 70 PSI equals about 70°F . This is not enough pressure difference to give you any cooling. Sounds like your compressor has bad valves. Replace compressor. ... Air Conditioners

Just installed a grunaire two zone split system(12,000 and 9,000). I had to cut the 25' lines to about 20' and 12' for appearance. I bled some of the 410a off of the system since it was precharged.

I am trouble shooting a Bryant Hi-bred system that uses an air cooled heat pump with high efficiency gas furnace for backup and low ambient operation. How does the system decide whether to use the air cooled heat pump or the gas fired high efficiency furnace. It appears to be outdoor air temperature related, but I can't find the setpoint for it. The main zone Bryant thermostat appears to control the system, but it doesn't always bring the backup heat if the heat pump doesn't function.
