Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

"Check Filter" light is on

\015 My check filter light is on on my window unit and it blows out "chunks" of black stuff. I need to know how to clean it real good to avoid this problem,\015

Answers :

Take out the filter and pour water on the oposite side that is the dirt,if the water is not enough use degreaser and also clean thefront cover where the filter goes.
Make sure you reset the unit after you clean the filter. These air conditioners are notorious for not turning off the "check filter" light. You should already be unplugging the machine to clean it, so it's not really an extra step. Also, the filter needs to be placed just right to reset the sensors.

Wont work I have a Maytag central air thats about four years old. Once in a while it would stop blowing really cold air and would just blow mildly cool air. What I would do to fix this is flip the breaker off and then flip it back on again. When I did this the "high cool" light would come back on and everything would work just fine. This time that solution wont work. I have left it off for an hour at a time multiple times. I played with every switch and checked and cleaned every filter. We live

I have noticed in the past 24 hours that my air conditioning has not been as cool as it normally is. I changed the air filter in my furnace and my air is still not getting any cooler. I checked the ignition light and it is green and flashing. I know it needs to be green but not sure about the flashing. I can also hear my furnace running.
