Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

GE ASM10AK 10,200 BTU Room Air Conditioner is 115 volt, but it blows the circuit regularly becasue it has many other devices on it (IE computer, PS3, WII, LCD TV etc.). I have a 220 outlet on a separate circuit. I did not buy a 229 AC becasue I wanted to save money on the unit and electricity. Now I want to buy a step down transformer 220-115 so I can plug it into the 220 outlet. GE said not to do it. Will it use electricity equivalent to 220 or 115 with the transformer plugged into the 220 outl


Answers :

It would be easier to change the 220 circuit in your house to a 110 by some creative work in the breaker panel and making it an air condtioner circuit only. You would need to check with an electrician, but would probably be worth it in the long run.

Have you hard wired your fan motor to verify that the motor and or the capacitor are good? If you do a continuity test of the motor leads(with electricity off of course) you can see if the motor has open or grounded windings. ... Ruud Handler Air Conditioner

Installing an 24,000btu air conditioner. The original wiring at that outlet has an double pole 20amp circuit breaker. The old air conditioner that was their was plug into an outlet box that sat on the face of the wall that had 30 and 250 on it. I had purchased an outlet that had 20 and 250 on it. The instruction for the wiring of the new air conditioner said 208/230 volts; 0 to 12amps; 20amp time delay fuse or circuit breaker. So tell me if I am doing the right thing with that 20amp and 250 volt


Yes your ok if they say the unit doesn't need to be changed in the incomimg power from 208 up to 230 volts or vice-versa,normally they classify motors as120/208/ 230 /460 volts, instead of 120/240/480 volts,but all line voltage varies in this voltage ...

Hi! We have a Frigidaire FDL70S1 dehumidifier that is almost 2 years old. Lately it will run for a few minutes and then trip the circuit. We tried the dehumidifier in a different outlet, and although the circuit didn't trip, the outlet itself doesn't work now. We're thinking it's time to say goodbye to this appliance, as it's a potential fire hazard?


Hi,\015\012The most likely cause of the problems you are having is that the compressor is bad and the windings are shorted...\015\012The dehumidifier will run without trying to start the compressor for a few minutes and then when the comp ... Air Conditioners

I have a 220v 100 amp circuit breaker that feeds a sub-panel. The sub-panel has 3 circuits: a)60 amp Heater (unit 1 in house) b)60 amp A/C (unit 2 in house) c) 40 amp for pool equipment. The 100 amp keeps tripping in the middle of day. None of the circuits in the sub panel trip. Because it is summer, I am assuming the Heater circuit does not come into play.


Your a/c uses the blower motor from the heater to distribute air check for loose wire connections that will raise amperage and also make sure you have the right size wire to each unit 40 amp should have 8 awg(copper) wire and 60 shoul ... Air Conditioners

I have 60 amp circuit breaker on my electrical a/c heater with a 45 amp fuse. I had the unit for 7 years with no problem. This month the 60 amp circuit breaker keeps tripping when the heater goes off. The 60 amp circuit breaker does not trip all the way. Do you think I have a bad circuit breaker? Shouldn?t the 45 amp fuse blow before the 60 amp breaker trips.


You're unit is a 31/2 ton according to the numbers.Normally, breakers will only be in a half way posistion when tripped. Yes, under most conditions, the fuse will blow before the breaker trips. I have seen this many times, the breaker may be weak, bu ... Goodman CKL42AR42 Air Conditioner
