Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

The AC will not cool below 71 degrees. Can it be adjusted to cool down to 65. It appears that it was set at the factory to not cool below 71. I do not care for that at all.


Answers :

You have a air conditioner not a refrigerator. The reason that its locked to not go below is because any lower then that and the evaporator will freeze up and then liquid refrigerant will go to the compressor.

New Mr. Slim system just installed. Set to "Heat." Temp setting adjustment on the remote control will not go below 59 degrees. Is that factory setting? Set at 59 it keeps room at 70 degrees, can't get it lower, seems calibrated 10 degrees higher than the setting, will run up electric bill if I can't turn down lower overnight.


I have a related concern. I put the Mr. Slim unit in my garage/workshop and most of the time need it just to keep the pipes from freezing. I'd like to set it at 45 or 50 degrees, but the lowest it allows is 59. I bought this to save energy, but it's ... Mitsubishi Mr. Slim MXZ30TN Air Conditioner

The builder of my house preset my honeywell thermostat such that it could not be adjusted below 72 for cooling. This was to prevent subcontractors from setting it lower while doing interior work on the house. I never learned how to de-program it so that I can set it lower than 72 degrees. What do I do?

Penguin a/c The original Penguin A/C on my 1999 Airstream failed in August 2006, and the roof portion was replaced by an Airstream dealer. The replacement would not work with the existing thermostat, which was replaced by a thermostat designed to handle multiple zones, although I have only one zone. The combination operated irratically; it was often necessary to set the demand to 50 degrees to get the unit to start on a hot day. Once the unit was cool, any adjustment to a moderate temperature (

THe a/c has very weak flow of air blowing even with the fan on high. My last carrier had a high volume of air coming out of the vents which was adjusted by the installer as I desire room by room. This installer said the latest carrier units are designed differently and dont allow for adjustments. It takes hours for the house to cool down a few degrees and runs continuously. It only will cool below 74 degrees when the temperature outside is under 77. I have had several installers to look at

The air conditioner is emitting cool air instead of cold air. I have the setting on cold and the temperature setting at 60 degrees. On these days that have been near and over 100 degrees, that cool air offers no relief. When we first got the unit, it emitted cold air. We've changed nothing. The unit is not installed in a window but rather in a hole made for it in the wall.

I have an XQ08 model - thru the wall When turned on it provide cooling for approx 10 minutes (sometimes longer) and then it stops blowing cool air. My repair man came and adjusted the sensors which he said might solve the problem. It did not. the thermostat is set to 69, I have it set on 'cool', not money saver. When it stops cooling, and I turn it down to 60, it makes no difference and no sound indicating the compressor clicks on. Any suggestions would be helpful. thank you Ms Hill


Hi\015\012\015\012To fix a cooling problem in AC you must know the cooling process that the condenser (outside unit) pulls in the house's warm air and cools it with Freon. The cold air is then forced back into your home through the duct s ... Friedrich Air Conditioners

I purchased a commercial cool room air conditioner by Haier (7000 BTU) and I set it up and turned it on and used the remote and everything worked accordingly. I came back in the room to adjust the settings and the remote would not work. I changed the batteries (though they were just out of the package 3 hours ago) and was able to adjust one setting and the remote would no longer work. Unfortunately with this model, all settings except the on/off switch are on the remote. Please help!

We have this air conditioner in our sunroom. From the beginning, the temperature set is not maintained. When the unit is set to cool, no matter how high a temperature I select, the unit cuts on approximately every 10-15 minutes, and cools the room to about 66 degrees. When set to heat in the winter, no matter how low a temperature I select, the heat cuts on about every 10-15 minutes, and the room will heat to a much higher temperature than selected. Any idea what the problem is, and how I ca

My ac unit will not go below 77 degrees. It quit working about 1.5 weeks ago, and I had a service technican come and look at it. He replaced the capacitor and the unit started back up and would cool to 75 degrees (where I usually have it set). He checked the pressure of the unit as well and said that it was fine. However I came back from a trip and the thermostat read 77 degrees even though I have it set on 75, and the temperature will not go any lower. This is the same thing it was doing

We had a new AC unit & the inside unit replaced last night, it cooled fine over night. This morning it started making a "locust" sound every few seconds from the outside part & a gurgling sound from the inside part. It was 96 degrees today & although it was set for 80 degrees, it hovered at 85-86 all day. It's now cooled down outside to 89. It's still 86 inside. Do you have a suggestion as to what the cause is? Could it be over charged? Under charged?

My Simple Comfort 2000 worked normally for about 2 years until recently. It was already a part of the house when we purchased it. There are several issues: 1) The "set" Temperature mode remains on constantly. It (inconsistently) will switch to the room temperature or even allow anyone to adjust the temperature. If it remains in the "set" mode it consistently sits at 45. Obviously its not 45 degrees in the home but nevertheless thats what it does. 2)After I sit there and try adjusting the te
