Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

COILS FREEZING OUR A/C UNIT IS 11YEARS OLD, THE COILS KEEP FREEZING AND THE THE CONDENSER IS RUSTING SINCE LAST YEAR. WE HAVE ALWAYS KEPT THE FILTERERS VERY CLEAN. WE SPRAYED WATER AND DAWN DETERGENT ON COILS FOR A LEAK (NO BUBBLING) IS IT TIME FOR A NEW A/C AFTER 11YEARS.


Answers :

If your coils and filter are clean and you have good air flow then you are very likely low on refrigerant. Most A/C's (depending on use) have about a 20 year lifespan. I would call a Tech. to check it.

I have a Intertherm split a/c heat unit. I have water leaking out of the indoor coils into the blower compartment which cause me to replace the blower unit and cap.

I have an intertherm AC unit (model E2EB-015HA) and the inside unit is leaking and damaging my floor. We discovered this last summer and assumed it was a combination of condensation from the unit and freezing up. As it did freeze up and we caught it rather late. I did a good cleaning, filter replacment, and checked the line running out of the water-pan and it was not clogged and water was flowing well. I fixed some floor damage in my hallway and kept a close eye on the unit. This summer it has s

Own a whirlpool low temp dehumidifier model AD75USTO that collects very little water despite running all day in a basement with humidity level of 70% at about 60 deg F. I opened the case and saw that the coil remains frozen. I also noticed a thermistor mounted on the coil. Possibly this circuit is not working. I sprayed the thermistor with a freeze spray during operation and the compressor didn't do anything?? Help!!

Ceiling leaks There is a water leak from the ceiling vent that contains the coil, pan, etc. I sealed the pan with epoxy and putty. I also cleaned the sink drainage tube with a wet vac and replaced the filter. It seemed to stop the leak for a week. Now it leaks again, but it does not leak when I remove the filter. So, i am running it without a filter.

I have a Carrier 58DX080CC Forced air furnace that is leaking water onto the floor, but otherwise works perfectly. A service guy told me I need a new Coil, but it probably wouldn't pay to repair it, and that I should replace it. His quote to replace was about $6K. I found the part, Z7-58DX080CC-91CW at United parts supply for $890. The unit was manufactured in 1988 and is 90% efficient. What should I do? Buy the part and hire somebody to fix it? Buy a new one? The new price he quoted wa

My parents had a frigidaire eletric heat pump installed 2 years ago. almost right away a soured water smell came out of the vents. service tech sprayed the coils and installed a black light. did not help. service tech said frigidaire did have this problem with some of its units. so the unit was replaced. new unit done fine for about 6 months. now the smell has came back mainly when the cooling is on. any suggestions. i dont believe it is the unit. they had a gas it pump before.

Hello, my HVAC is constantly freezing, even after freon is added. I was told that I have a leak in the coils and need to chance the air handler - the outside unit is about 10 years old - air handler about 18 years old. I would like to get only the air handler for my R22 outside condensing unit.

My daughter has a Bryant AC Model number 563AN048-A where the outside coils are freezing up. The repairman has been out twice and has cleaned the coils on the inside and outside units and has checked the coolant levels that he says are ok. Currently, if they remove the cold air return filter, air circulation is increased slightly and in doing so, the outside coil is not freezing. Can't run the system without a filter as the internal coil will clog. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Assoc
