Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?
Noisy much more than laast summer
It sounds like the condenser coils are dirty. This is the coils that are located on the outside. You can use compressed air or a sprayer on a water hose to rinse them. Window units need to be serviced just like split systems. Make sure you don't use a real high pressure so you don't bend the fins.

Self-Evaporating Technology This summer we are not finding very much if any water in the internal collection tank. We thought our machine was broken so we borrowed the Danby DPAC7599 Portable Air Conditioner and used it in the exact same way. Again very little or no water in the internal collection tank. The only difference I can think of from last summer to this summer is that I never open my western facing window or the blinds at all. We are very near the ocean In Vancouver BC. Last summer whe

I'm not sure about the Trane brand, but I'm having a hard time finding Armstrong service information and I was told this was a "Trane" I believe, or possibly a Ruud. I have a "combo pack" 3 ton heat/air unit. It quit working late summer, and I haven't had much time to look at it. It was totally dead, and I checked the main breaker service panel, none tripped, the fuse block on the house, both fuses were good. Opened the service panel on the unit and found one of the 120 volt "hot" leads had be

Anyone know how to reset the remote control for my everstar portable ac? I took the batteries out for the winter like the manual says, and when I put them back in this summer the remote came on but the AC no longer recognizes it. The manual says if I remove the batteries I will need to reprogram the remote, but it doesn't tell me how to do it!!! My AC model is MPN1-095CR-BB6 and the remote says Type R51I17/BGCE on the back. If anyone can help, thanks so much in advance!

I have a Rheem criterion II gas furnace. Excessive water is coming out the pvc pipe that looks like it is a relief pipe. We are in Arizona so it is running long with the ac on. Never noticed this much water in past summers.

I keep getting water leaking out of my bryant heat pump (indoor unit) in the summer when the wheather is very hot and humid for a long time. I suspect there is too much ice buildup and it is dripping outside of the collection tray which is not blocked nor is the pump clogged. Any ideas???
If it is freezing up then it is for sure dripping outside the catch pan.. Have you been able to take the front cover off and see ice on the coil.... ? ... Bryant 463AAC005BA Air Conditioner
We have a Lennox model GCS16-1353-270-7y. It has not been working right all summer. I have a manual for it. We called a serviceman 3 weeks ago. Have not seen him yet. We are remote Montana and do not have many chooses. The unit has a economizer on it. I blocked the dampers open on the ecomomizer to try to make the unit operate better, and opted to wait for the tech as it was lowering the temp 10-15 degrees. We do not need much in western Montana. That worked until yesterday when the Outside temp
Well, it sounds like you may just need a good cleaning. Water and rags and maybe a little soap will do wonders on this unit if you haven't cleaned it ever. Also try using a compressor to blow out as much as you can first and then using the rags to cl ... Air Conditioners
We have had our Mitsubishi mr. slim unit for three years. Last summer we noticed a moldy smell while the unit is running.

Reverse cycle air conditioning unit theremostat is only a couple of feet away from return air vent. The room where the vent and thermostat are located is in the middle of a building and has no windows. This area remains much colder than the surrounding rooms (which all have large windows) and attempts to reach a comfortable temperature in the central area results in the surrounding rooms becoming uncomfortably hot in the winter and to cool the surrounding rooms in the summer means that the centr

We had a brand new unit put in a couple of years back. When it was installed it worked. Once winter came, it obviously was turned off. Then the following summer, it would turn on but just blow air, would not cool at all- so the unit installers came out and repaired it. It worked through the summer, then the following summer-it wouldnt cool again-they came back out and fixed it again. Third summer in a row-it is not working again!!

How much water should be put into a Dimplex Portable Air Conditioner DAC15HH? The user manual does not say how much. There is a clear strip on the side which runs the full height of the unit which allows you to see the water level but does not have a marker to show how much to put in. I added water to reach a few inches up the gauge, then the "empty the water" symbol and "dinging sound" came on. I switched off and it leaked all over the floor, even though the outlet plug and cap were still in pl

Fugitsu ART45LUAK ducted airconditioning. To heat the house I set the fan low, heat manual and thermostat 24C, the temperature keeps creaping up to 27C. The you can hear the thermostat being reached but the heat comes on agin, then agin till its really hot. Same thing happens when using the cooling setting, but in opposing temp ie set to 24 will drop to 20. If the select temp and fan is set to auto, it will heat up too much and then will then auto cool down too much like its fighting itself.

I installed a Hunter 44860 digital programmable T-stat on a single zone heat pump system. During the summer it was fine and the AC was cold. When winter came, the heat would blow cool. A friend switched a wire for the reversing valve and the heat was great. Summer came and the AC blew hot. I changed the wire again and it was fine. Now winter is here and the heat is cold... reversed the wire and now the AC is hot. Is there a solution to this? Does this t-stat support both?
Single zone means there is only one valve for the thermostat to control for hot, and one to control for cold.The thermostat you selected is not correct.It is not for single zone heat pumps.If you would like me to do additional resea ... Air Conditioners
I have a Bryant split system AC that is 18 years old. We have been away all summer (2 1/2 months), during which time the thermostat was set to 80°F. We live in SE Virginia and summer temps are 80's or 90's. We arrived home less than a week ago and turned the thermostat down to 72°F (at all times - we have small children and I am pregnant, so we need the house to be cool 24/7). The system was working fine until this afternoon, when I noticed the house was warming up. The temp had reached 76°

Noise I just bought the 8000 and 10000 BTU Frigidaire air conditioners just before my move and have found that they are very noisy (especially the 8000 BTU unit). The sound of the air flow is very noisy and the 8000 BTU unit also seems be have a slight irritating whining noise. I was thinking about taking out the three screws I saw on the side of the unit in hopes of getting the front off and attaching some cloth or something inside to make it quieter.

I've had to replace the blower motor on an old GE electric furnace three times in the past year. The first time the motor just stopped working. So I replaced it with an A.O. Smith motor for the summer. It worked just fine during the summer. Winter comes along, switch the thermostat to heat and the house fills up with light smoke with a smell of burning plastic. I replace it again with the same brand and model # along with a new capacitor. It ran fine for about an hour or two, then it began to bl
