Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Hot Upstairs I bought a new house 4 yrs ago and during the first summer I noticed that I could never get the upstairs cool. The best I get is 80oF My master bedroom is downstairs and very cool so being hot upstairs wasn't a big issue until now. Now my kids are ready to move into their rooms upstairs and I am wondering what I can do to cool these 3 rooms and a gameroom. No window unit AC is permitted in my subdivision. Every room has a vent but these vents are not big enough to produce enough coo


Answers :

A good heating guy should be able to balance your dampers to increase the airflow upstairs. Keep in mind heat rises. 2nd floors are the hardest to cool. You may need to add more returns to pull the heat down the the evaporator so it can be cooled. If you are lucky you may be able to adjust your blower up to a higher speed. You may have to even add some more supply airs. Check with your local building inspector. He may be able to give you a list of contractors in your area that would be good for this type of problem. Good luck>>>

My Kenmore 72059 unit is blowing cold air but is not cooling the room (the room is not the big either). It is set at 60 degrees. Why is the room not getting cool?


Physics, friend. \015\012Ideally any cool input would be enough to effect the temperature, but other things are working against you. \015\012Check the air filter behind the case cover and clean it if necessary. This may improve your ai ... Kenmore 72059 Air Conditioner

I just purchased a kenwood a/c a couple of weeks ago it's a G130EK, 13,000 btu and it doesn't cool anything not even a 12 x 12 room. There is an opening that leads to a bigger room , but the smaller room should as least be cool. I keep it at 64 degrees and still nothing . The exhaust hose gets warm and when I go out side to check the exhaust I can feel hot air coming through. What's my problem . Hope you can help Thanks !!!!

I installed a 2400 BTU Senville mini split ac unit about 6 months ago and until now, it worked great. Tonight I noticed my room getting hot and looked up at the wall unit and it was flashing "f5" I think? I turned it off and on and it seemed to return to normal with 65 degrees displayed yet when the room stayed hot, I went out and looked and the compressor was not working. I flipped the breaker and still nothing, went inside and turned it on and off again, still no compressor, no cooling. Thanks

Our Masterbedroom (downstairs)does not get enough cooling or heating eventhough the a/c and heater are working fine to adjust temperature in the larger living room. The air blown through the duct is low in the master bedroom. This is the only room that has issue in our house. I am not sure if each room has its individual fan blower?


The air takes the path of least resistance.What you need is a balance.there should be some dampers in the round pipe of each heat run.restrict the ones going to the livingroom about half way....this will force more air to your bedroom. ... Air Conditioners

Hello there. I have Friedrich wallmaster a.c ws16b30-a for about five years, a month ago it started not to cool enough, then i called service, the service guy cleaned the coil and recharged compresor with freon after finding that it was only 30% on freon. It worked good for about two weeks and now problem started again. Now compressor works for about a minute or two and than shuts-off releasin wery hot air on the back of unit and compressor itself gets very hot. Can somone tell me what kind of s


Hi,As it is already 5 years old, there could be many problems. Yes, freon is the main fault. Other than this, i would doubt freon leak. These AC's are more prone to freon air. I have no idea whether the repairman checked it for freon air. ... Friedrich WallMaster WS07A10D Air Conditioner

Im not getting enough cold air in my house to keep it cool during the day my air runs 24/7 but it remains hot the only time it cools down is at night


Hi, I will give you some things you can do as far as some service on this unit. What happens, is when the ambient temperature rises, so does the internal freon pressures in the system which in turn, causes the unit to work much harder and at a 95f de ... Intertherm P3RA-048K Air Conditioner

Replacing fan motor on a roof top unit, has a thru shaft and was sent both replacement fan blades, can not get the squirrel cage off the evaporator end, not enough room to get your hand in there. this is the rapid cool unit by Domentic,and is on a mountaineer 5th wheel


If I have both blades and double ended motor, I just use a hacksaw and snip and cut the old one out. If inaccessable you can probably hammer the shaft from the other end, I can't recall if this one has a belly band or not but normally you can tap the ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

The power cord on my goldstar R1203 gets super hot and kicks off the power strip. I have tried just plugging it directly into the wall socket and it actually kicks off the power to the entire room. It will run for about an hour using the power strip then we have to turn it off and let the power cord cool off. Is this fixable?


I would have the unit checked by a Service Tech and would not run it (the AC) until it was fixed.\015\012\015\012This could be a dangerous situatiion especially if the breaker doesn't trip. ... Goldstar R1203 Air Conditioner

I recently replaced my thermostat to digital and the air conditioner works great but the heat doesnt seem to get hot enough like it is blowing out room temperature air. when i replaced the thermostat there was an extra wire (orange) that didnt have a terminal to go to. I'm not sure if someone forgot to hook it up or if thats the problem with my heat?


Sounds like you got the wrong thermostat.\015\012The orange wire is for the reversing valve, which reverses the flow of refridgerant and changes the system from cooling mode, to heat mode.\015\012\015\012If your thermostat has no te ... Ruud Central System Air Conditioner

When heating it ices up on the outside, bottom of unit. Also doesn't always seem to turn off in relation to temp set, room gets way too hot (but not always!) Had to replace the circuit board this summer, cooling worked fine. Have already cleaned filter and used air compressor to blow out coil on inside. Maybe need to hose down outside portion to clean it?


When cleaning the unit make sure to clean out the inside and outside parts. See if that makes a difference since you already had the board replaced. New heat pumps would use the difference in air flow in the outside coils as measurement when to act ... Amana PTH123B25AJ Heat Pump Air Conditioner

I have 2 zone cooling in my house. both outside units turn on. Hot air comes out of the ventt, both upstairs and down. What needs to be done to get cold air?


Hello. Go outside and take a look at the fan/condenser. You should be able to see 2 brass pipes (one thin, one thick) connected to the fan/condenser. If you find ice on one of the pipes, then your AC need more freon. If the fan on the co ... Emerson Air Conditioners

My outside a/c unit appears to be working fine.We have been having problems with our unit though. The rooms are not getting cool enough and some of the bedrooms are very humid. Now the inside unit has frozen up and the fan will not come on. Any ideas anyone?


It sounds like your components are working fine, too fine. Your problem is either setting the temperature too low (Don't set it under 72 degrees F, initially.) Secondly you have too much outside humid air coming into the house. You need to close off ... Goodman CKL42AR42 Air Conditioner
