In 2002, I had an Amana heat pump installed, in 2003, I had to have the defrost panel replaced and in April 2004, I had to have a new air handler installed, I'm not sure how many service calls I have had, but last year 2010, I had 3 calls at a cost of over $300, plus a new compressor, last week it ran and ran and did not heat my house at all. After several calls to the company they finally came and said the compressor was bad, it was replaced on Friday 4/8/2011, the weather was mild and I did n

I have two compressors-one for the upstairs and one for the down stairs. Both compressors are working but the air flow for the upstairs basically does not come out. You can hear the unit running but no air upstairs. Down stairs the air is working. Is there any way to turn the airflow up or adjust it to send more air upstairs. I had the capacitor replaced in the down stairs compressor a few weeks ago and for the upstairs about 1 1/2 years ago. when the air downstairs started working a few d

I have/had 2 GE 8000btu wall air conditioners and at 3 years old, both of them within 2 weeks of each other had stopped blowing out cold air, just now the way a fan would blow. It almost seems to me that GE has purposely made these air conditioners to stop working properly at a certain time so I should buy new ones. I replaced one of them already with another brand, now I have to replace a 2nd one. I can't really afford to do this. Is it possible that they have both run out of Freon? Otherwise I

I have a 1997 kenworth truck. The airconditioner compressor clutch will slip sometimes when I first turn it on. I have just replaced the compressor and clutch for this problem. Evacuated the system and filled with the proper amount of freon and refridgerant oil. Worked good for about two weeks and then started doing the same thing again. If I try starting the A/C two or three times it will start.
You have a low voltage problem to the ac clutch,check the voltage to the clutch with it running,see if it is bellow 12.5 volts,it should be closer to 13.5 volts but the ac clutch relay may be the problem,or a trinary switch that is weak,and not condu ... Air Conditioners

Goodman heat pump model CPKJ421B. Tripped breaker for outside unit two weeks ago. Reset breaker, tripped again today. Unit won't run now. Did some basic checks and found that the 28 vac from the inside unit was not going through the low pressure switch to pull in the 220 vac contacter for the compressor. Possibly either the refrigerant is low or the low pressure switch is bad. Could a faulty switch, maybe losing and regaining contact quickly, trip the breaker? Could the refrigerant, just before

Have a R-22 Rudd ait handler. Replaced the compressor with a 1.5 ton Goodman unit. My home is 1300 SF in NJ On hot days during the peak of the day the system seems to stop working for a period. The Compressor fan still runs but the compressor is not. My air handler fits the cubby hole and I am limited for space, as I considered replacing it.

My RUUD UBHA 21J8SFGAI is not cooling my house like before. It runs almost all day and the house feels a little warm. I called an air conditioner repairman who told me that the compressor is leaking freon and oil from the bottom because the bottom 2 inches are wet. He said I needed to replace the compressor. He added freon the the unit and said it would cost around $700 to $2,500 depending on what needed to be replaced Can a compressor be fixed or do I have to replace it? The house is a lit

Honeywell t8601d showing a square symbol error - in past this has indicated low refrigerant. Tech came out, said need to replace thermostat, as compressor would not start, but if manually connected wires, compressor would start. So, had thermostat replaced. Tech then said need refrigerant. Did the t8601d actually need to be replaced?
There is a sensor that shuts the compressor down when the freon (refrigerant) is low. The tech probably "shorted" out this sensor. If the unit went on when he did this, the charge is low. ... Honeywell Air Conditioners

I have an Amana Prestige A/C compressor that is not turning on when my fan turns on to cool the house. I replaced the capacitor because my old one was bubbled up at the top. After I replaced it, it still did not kick back on when I turned on the A/C unit from inside. There is an override switch on the compressor that turns the compressor on manually but does not stay on.

Model ck42-1a compressor won't come on. I replaced the intake filter about a month ago. It was a pleated filter and was real caked when I replaced this month. Can that cause the compressor to go out? I have two units and the pipe coming in to the house is cold on the good unit but not on the bad. Could that be anything but the compressor? Low freon or a-coil freezing in the house?
The fact the filter was very dirty and the door partly open allowing non filtered air to enter the system leads me to a possible dirty evaporative coil on the furnace. That can cause poor airflow and iced up coil reducing airflow even more. In the lo ... Goodman CKL42AR42 Air Conditioner

My Goodman Mfg AC unit is blowing fuses on the control board inside the blower/air handler unit. This fuse supplies 24V to the outside compressor unit. Originally, there was a 3 A fuse in it. I replaced it with a 5 A fuse that lasted for a year. Now it has blown. I suspect that the solenoid actuator coil on the outside compressor unit is becoming lossy and drawing more amperage in the hot weather and my solution is to replace that component. Does that sound right?
