Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

R22 freon Waht does Heat pump uses more freone on heating cycle or cooling cycle? If on cooling cycle whay? and if on heating cycle Whay? Thank you! Abe


Answers :

It uses the exact same amount of freon on both cycles...it just inverts a vale which changes the condenser to an evaporator int eh winter for heat and changes the condenser back to a condenser for AC in the summer. However it does so with the same amount of freon.
Thank you ...the Fang

What kind of freon would i need for a goodman cplt24-1a heat pump ? has not cooled the houuse for 2 years now, thought it may have been the compressor as the heating was not working either. But i was told it may just need freon. And any idea on how much this would cost ? I am in canada but all help would be appreciated . THANKS


R22 but it does not use it it is circulated in a closed loop, if the fan outside is running you may have to pull the brown wire at the split capacitor to see if the compressor is running. Also it is really important that the filters are changed and t ... Goodman CPLT24-1 13 Air Conditioner

Wont cool!! We have 2 LG 2ton heat pump outdoor systems, but I believe the remotes are cool only. The 01 system cools perfect, but the 02 outdoor fan runs half as fast as the 01 system and the compressor keeps cycling on and off, and they are hot enough to burn you. I am totaly stumped on what the proble could be.... We swaped just about everything between the 2 systems and still the 01 frezzes you out while the 02 will not cool at all.. Any kind of seguestions wold be much appreciated, Thanks i

This is a heating and cooling through the wall heat pump. It works normally when heating is selected - the heat pump runs and both speeds of the fan blow warm air. But nothing runs when cooling is selected. In other words the unit works normally when "High Heat" or "Low Heat" is selected but nothing runs when "High Cool", "Low Cool" or "Fan Only" is selected. The position of the Fan Cycle Switch has no effect - behavior of the unit is the same in both positions of the Fan Cycle Switch.

The upper unit functions normal if each spring, when switching from heat to cooling, the technician adds 4 pounds of freon to cool properly. In the fall the tech must draw out 4 pounds of freon for this unit to heat properly. The outside and attic units are a matched set and the expansion value in the attic unit has been replaced.

Honeywell thermostat T8400c started flashing, heat/cool was off. Display flashes all icons (heat and cooling icons, temperatures, everything) and on the oppposite flash, the setpoint is displayed. The fan comes on when turned to ''ON'' but heat or cool does not when in ''auto''. The compressor can be turned on outside at the switch, but appears to have no freon. Heating & cooling worked within 2 weeks prior to this issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Based on the simplicity of this particular t-stat, I really think that it is bad and needs to be replaced. They do not make this particular model anymore. I have included a link to the operators manual for the stat. Good luck!\015\012\ ... Air Conditioners

My intertherm heat pump has freon but will not heat is it posible that the reversing valve is stuck in the middle and will not let it heat if so where can i get a new one. My heat pump cools good and when I switch to heat the lines to the coil inside are very hot but coil is not. Is my coil stopped up and if it is how is it cooling?


You can't replace a reversing valve (must remove ALL refrigerant first), unless you are EPA certified and have the equipment to recover the refrigerant and to braze the old valve out and the new one in. That said, it's probably an electrical problem ... Air Conditioners

After a cooling cycle, when the thermostat call for more cooling, it take up to 5 minutes after the air handler starts for the compressor motor to restart. The top fan operates on the outside unit, but since the house is not circulating cold air, only the room tep air the house heats up about 3 degrees before the compressor comes back on and cool air begins to come from the ducts. Yes. I know there is a safety feature to protect the compressor, but can the cycle be shortened?


No, this cycle cannot be shortened due to the simple fact that this feature is in place to protect your system. Even if it could be, I wouldn't recommend it.Mat ... Coleman Air Conditioners

I have a split system sanyo heat pump model # kmh0922. The evap. fan will not come on when called for in fan mode. When i put it to heat the indoor fan will also not come on. The compressor runs but the reversing valve seems to stay in the cooling mode. When it is put into cooling the indoor fan goes off after 15 seconds and will not come back on.

My Amana A/C is almost five years old. It is not cycling in the heat of the afternoon. I live in Las Vegas, NV. I recently had the expansion valve replaced, but this did not fix the problem. The original problem was it was not cooling, but now the problem is it is not cycling. It will run all afternoon until the temp outside cools. I also need to know if this valve is still under warranty. I have a 13 seer, 3.5 ton. I am sorry I do not have the model number. It was installed on 9-8-2004.


If 5 years on parts, you still have until Sept. 9, this year, to avail. Besides, if the problem is with the compressor, its a lifetime warranty you said. :)The best thing to do is avail your warranty from an authorized service center to ... Air Conditioners

Reversing valve Model: PHJ030-1A Seral: 9705062008 The reversing valve is not reversing to heat. I found a small hole at the condenser coil, with oil residue around the "U" shape joint. When the heat stop, the condenser froze up. I think the a/c part will continue to cool with low pressure. Could low freon keep the reversing valve from switching. Reversing valve need more pressure to work. I check coil, the ohms is 17.6, and I do have 24 volts going to the coil, but I did not check it in cool fo

No heat My 7500 zoneline will not provide heat consistantly. I can unpplug the main power source to the control boards and plug it back in, ,and I will then get heat.

It sounds like it could be the tstat itself. Unless you use a voltage meter to take some readings it's hard to determine if it is a board. The best thing for you to do is remove the tstat from the system and manually operate it with a jumper wire t ... GE Air Conditioners
